Update: As predicted, this went quick.  Congrats on those who got in on it.  I am so excited for you all and thanks for sharing your success!!

Oh how I would love to jump on this deal.  I was looking at Flyertalk today and stumbled across information about round-trip flights from Dallas to Honolulu on Continental/United for around $400 all-in.  Many dates seem to be available.  I even did a search over Labor Day and came up with many available flights for around that price.  Honolulu seems to be the cheapest destination, but Maui isn’t coming up significantly more expensive.  If you want some more details about the deal, routing possibilities, etc… definitely check out the Flyertalk thread linked above.  Fares like this often don’t stick around for too long.  So, if you think you want to get in on this deal, I would book now and then you still have 24 hours to change your mind without penalty on Continental/United.

Oh if Santa wanted to slip a cool $1200 in my stocking so that my family of three could go, I would happily accept.  Ha ha, at least dreaming about going is free.  Even better is sharing the information about the deal, so that maybe the information can benefit someone else!  If you do take advantage of this, let me know!  I can live through your deal snagging success.  😉

  1. You can get there for 40,000 Avios points and $21.40. Or you could transfer 31,000 MR (30% bonus)and those points post instantly so you don’t have to worry about your award seat still being available.

  2. @infamousdx, great use of the $500 fares earlier this year!

    @Jim, very true. Of course, at this price if you wanted to use points instead of cash, you could just about spend 31,000 Membership Reward points as cash and “buy” this fare (if you had a Plat card that allows the bonus % for points used as cash towards travel). That way you would also earn both elite and redeemable miles for the flight.

  3. Looks like the deal is over for the $400 price, but I did check using miles on AA and for Avios. If you can fly in February, you can fly roundtrip on AA for 35K miles (Economy Mile Saver Off Peak). Trying to use Avios miles for the same trip cost 40K miles. I am going to have to think about this one.

  4. The fare appears to be gone. I think I got one very last minute. Was thinking about it all day, and when I finally decided to do it, saw the fares removed from united.com as well as kayak.com.

    I did find ONE fare in May with a Hawaiian interline connection via ITO on the return (To my understanding won’t earn EQM on *A)–booked for $401 a/i.

    Good deal indeed, but hopefully now good positioning fares from SFO to DFW O/w and return o/w on UA

  5. With very minimal work I found a January AA RT DFW-HNL for $557 all-in using the Costco 10% off gift card. Did not check for additional 5/10%-off codes.

    With the DEQM promo open to anyone through 1/31/12, 15K+ qualifying miles. Pretty cheap for AA EQMs.

    And AA may match UA/CO.

    You’d change in LAX, so just possibly the ORD-LAX and return part would be triple EQMs for a resident of TX/IL/CA. People have differing views on whether that would work.

  6. “Trying to use Avios miles for the same trip cost 40K miles. I am going to have to think about this one.”

    BA Visa has a double points deal going. 2.5 Avios per dollar. So $16000 spend at that rate would get you a RT to Hawaii. Spectacular.
