Foodland and Hawaiian Airlines Announce New Partnership
Customers Can Now Earn HawaiianMiles by Grocery Shopping at Foodland
We are excited to begin our new partnership with Hawaiian Airlines and the HawaiianMiles frequent-flyer program! Grocery shoppers statewide can now earn HawaiianMiles by shopping at Foodland, Sack N Save and Foodland Farms stores using their Maika`i cards. We are the only supermarket in Hawaii to offer this great Hawaiian Airlines benefit to our loyal customers!
Here’s how it works:
• You’ll receive 1 Maika`i Point for every dollar you spend using your Maika`i card.
• After earning 250 Maika`i Points, you’ll receive a My Rewards Certificate that you can redeem for 200 HawaiianMiles (or other rewards, including grocery discounts or free or specially-priced products) at checkout.
• If you choose to redeem your Certificate for HawaiianMiles, you must first register your Maika`i card number and HawaiianMiles account number online at www.HawaiianAirlines.com/Foodland.
“We know that many of our customers love to travel and we are excited to now be able to reward them with HawaiianMiles,” said Jenai S. Wall, Foodland Chairman and CEO. “As a local company, we are especially proud to partner with another favorite local business to bring added value to the many loyal customers we both serve here in Hawaii,” continued Wall.
Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian, said, “With their locations on all our islands, Foodland is the perfect partner to offer our mutual customers this exclusive opportunity to earn travel on Hawaiian for everyday grocery shopping. As two of Hawaii’s most enduring brands, we are a natural fit.”
Sweepstakes to Celebrate New Partnership

Foodland’s Maika`i program was introduced in 1995, and was the first loyalty-card/frequent-shopper program in Hawaii at that time. Today, the majority of Foodland customers own Maika`i cards and receive savings on thousands of items each week, as well as Maika`i points towards additional savings and benefits including a 5% grocery discount, free or specially-priced products, and now HawaiianMiles.

The face of Hawaii’s hungry ranges in all ages, from young to old, and across all ethnicities of our island population.
