Aloha! For a direct flight on United from Newark to Honolulu $420 is cheaper than what I paid on my first visit to Hawaii back in 1999. Back then you had to change planes in Los Angeles.
This time it was eleven hours straight. With a three month old new born it was not staight forward but not so difficult either.
First visit back in 1999 we headed to the island of Maui. Second visit in 2002 we headed to the island of Kauai. This time we are more than happy to stay in Oahu in tourist central of Waikiki.
We are staying in the Sheraton Westin Moana Surfrider right on the beach using Starwood points. Life is good! Cheap luxury vacations are still possible!

1. Register your Amex card(s) here on November 18th - 24th (limited entries so hurry)
2. Get a $25 statement credit for spending $25 at one of the merchants listed in your area
3. T&C here
4. Repeat for each card / authorized user of card
I thought this was too good to be true last year but I used 8 cards and got $200 statement credits - but this year I only have 5 Amex cards left because I cancelled cards due to annual fee being due :-(
Still an easy $125 dollars for me at local restaurant = FREE! - let me know how it goes please!
UPDATE: the map on shopsmall.com was ridiculously hard to navigate especially on a phone and I was traveling while on small biz Saturday so didn't get to max out on this :-(
