    I think you are in an excellent location for such deals. You might also consider pairing some award travel with this. Maybe the Alaska BofA card with the companion deal for a couple of the people. I am always looking for deals from the West coast to Hawaii and typically see $300'ish from the Bay area so you should be able to grab something like that later in the year.

    Get every adult to apply for AS' credit card since they offer a companion pass. Use the companion pass between each adult and child. This should cut your cost by almost 50%.

    Welcome to MilePoint, @movievic! Seattle (SEA) should be a great spot to get some great deals to to Hawaii! You have lots of time :)

    Also make sure that you are subscribed to the AS email with Bellingham as your city, and follow AS on twitter. They have sales from Bellingham to the islands every so often, for example yesterday they had a two hour sale from Bellingham to the islands, $139 o/w (https://twitter.com/AlaskaAir/status/570675726464233473) note this is long sold out since it was a two hour sale, combine an offer like that with the companion pass as @Jimgotkp suggests and you can get a good deal.

    It feels to me like sales from Bellingham to the islands are common, likely its a lower demand route since most people would need to fly in via Seattle adding additional connections, unless you are in the Bellingham area...

    You've already received many great suggestions, and I have the obvious one to add: r/t on Hawaiian Airlines from SEA to HNL is pricing as low as $524 during the first week of December. It should drop lower during this airlines next sale, you can sign up for notices of them on their website:

    DL has recently sent me an email for a sale from SEA to HNL/OGG for a sale price. Forgot how much since I deleted the email. I think it was around the 300s. RT

    ex-BLI on AS has a horrible crew, but if you book it at the right time you can snatch a good price on it. Mine was $320 CAD RT last May.

    Someone already mentioned the companion deal by AS's credit card, MBNA.

    Oh yeah, YVR-HNL/OGG average price is about $600-700 CAD RT.

    Not at all -- a lot of people don't believe me that by flying from BLI/SEA you can get your fares reduced by at least 40-50%. However I've been doing it for years, there's a reason why I'd rather fly from SEA/BLI instead of YVR.

    From BLI - HNL (Bellingham, WA to Honolulu, HI)
    There seems to be some cheap tickets available on Delta.
