I've been flying for years on business and been accumulating points. I currently have about 99,000 miles. My friends and family invited us to join them in HI (Kauai, specifically). I looked into using my miles but it would cost either 55,000 or 65,000 miles. Is signing up for the Alaska Airlines credit card the best way for me to cheaply be able to fly my family of 4 to Hawaii? With that, I could get 25,000 miles and a $99 companion ticket. Thank you for your help of a newbie to all this miles stuff.
