Boyd Gaming and Hawaiian Airlines Launch Partnership, Offering More Opportunities to Earn B Connected Rewards and HawaiianMiles

LAS VEGASBoyd Gaming Corporation and Hawaiian Airlines today announced a groundbreaking strategic partnership that will allow members to earn even more benefits and rewards with Boyd Gaming’s award-winning B Connected player loyalty program and the carrier’s celebrated HawaiianMiles program.

Effective today, Boyd Gaming and Hawaiian Airlines loyalty members will enjoy reciprocal earning and redemption benefits with Boyd Gaming’s      B Connected Points and the airline’s HawaiianMiles program. The partnership provides customers with greater access to B Connected’s exciting selection of reward tiers, exclusive player benefits and memorable entertainment experiences, as well as more ways to earn and use HawaiianMiles – making membership in both loyalty programs more attractive and valuable than ever.

“Hawaii is an incredibly popular destination among Boyd Gaming customers across the country, and Hawaii residents love nothing more than a trip to the ‘Ninth Island’ of Las Vegas,” said Matt Ryan, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Boyd Gaming. “Through this new partnership, we can offer Boyd Gaming guests valuable rewards for their next excursion on Hawaiian Airlines – no matter which way they are going!”

“It’s no secret our guests have a strong affinity for Las Vegas and Boyd Gaming properties, so we’re thrilled to offer our HawaiianMiles members more value through reciprocal program benefits,” said Danica Wong, director of HawaiianMiles at Hawaiian Airlines. “We also look forward to welcoming more B Connected customers onboard to experience our signature Mea Hoʻokipa (I am host) service as they travel to our island home.”   

Recognized as one of USA Today’s “10Best” casino loyalty programs nationwide, the B Connected program offers five player tiers – Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Onyx and Titanium. And while the rewards and perks keep growing as players move up through the tiers, B Connected offers every member a wide host of great benefits, including discounts on hotel stays and retail purchases at Boyd Gaming properties; special discounts with exclusive partners; and access to Boyd Gaming promotions and contests. B Connected members also have the opportunity to earn annual cruises; vacations to Hawaii as well as B Connected destinations in Las Vegas; and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as luxury VIP vacations, incredible culinary experiences, and exclusive entertainment and sporting events.

As a member of the B Connected network, all tier benefits and B Connected Points are honored at Boyd Gaming properties across the country, including Boyd Gaming destination resorts in Las Vegas, the Gulf Coast, East Coast, and throughout the Midwest.

The HawaiianMiles program, which was introduced in 1998, is free for members to join and offers a lifetime of flexibility with no mileage expiration. Miles can be earned for every mile flown with Hawaiian Airlines, and by flying with the carrier’s designated partner airlines, making purchases with the Hawaiian Airlines® World Elite Mastercard® or shopping at partner merchants. Miles can be redeemed for travel, food, shopping and more, or turned into a charitable donation via the HawaiianMiles giving program.
