Maui Hawaii Discount Cards are too often overlooked by travelers. I guess most people find it easier to take advantage of special deals when they don't need to apply for a card. This is perfectly understandable. But taking a few minutes to complete an application form can lead to hundreds of dollars of savings on your next Maui Hawaii vacation bookings.
How is that possible? It's simple math. A credit card like the Discover Card offers a 5% cashback bonus on all your travel bookings. Use it to book your flight, your hotel, your car rental, your activities and your restaurant bills. Do it for two persons or for the whole family and you'll quickly find out that you've spent $3000 maybe $4000 or more.
This is how a simple 5% discount can turn into hundreds of dollars. Out of $4000, a 5% cashback bonus means 200$ right in your pockets. Remember, all you did is use your card to do your booking. Why would you leave this money on the table?
And that's not all. Add this to the other Maui discounts listed here and you quickly double or triple the savings, keeping a couple more hundreds of dollars for you. And if you are a student, the Student Advantage Card can lead to savings up to 20%. This is how you make trips to incredible locations like Maui Hawaii possible even when you are on a tight budget.
Now, let's see the cards more closely. Each of them offers specific benefits. Choose the one that suits your needs the best, based on your travel style.
Discover Card proposes a line of credit cards offering great travel rewards. Travelers are generally very satisfied with these cards and reviews are highly positive.
Several types of cards are available each with different benefits: cashback bonus, miles, restaurant gift certificates and more. You are sure to find a card for you. I personally don't like miles reward systems that much and prefer cashback bonuses. It's up to you to choose your favorite card.
Here are the available money-saving options from Discover.
This is the most popular no-fee card. Cash rewards on every purchase and lots of ways to earn rewards faster.
Double cash rewards on your gas and dining purchases, plus rewards on every purchase you make.

This card has a 60$ annual fee but comes with bigger rewards. Double Miles on every purchase you make and unrestricted travel redemption options.
For those of you who want to go green, the new biodegradable card plastic breaks down 99% within five years in landfill conditions and leaves no toxic effects behind.
Students who love to travel can benefit from using Maui Hawaii discount cards. Most of the times, student cards offer rewards that are better then regular programs. Here are some good student money-saving cards.
If you are a student, the Student Advantage Card could be a good money-saving tool for you.
For a small annual fee (around 20$ to 30$ depending on special offers), you get automatic discounts (up to 50%) on every day products and services.
But what's interesting in terms of travel discounts, is the fact that the Student Advantage Card also offers savings on restaurants, flights, hotels and car rentals.
When booking with major companies like Hotels.com, Hostelworld.com and Dollar Rent A Car, you can get 5% to 20% additional discounts. The annual fee quickly turns into profit when using the card to book Maui hotels and car rental.
Note that the card is not restricted to United States residents. International students and young travelers visiting the United States can also order the card online.
Credit cards are awesome money-saving tools when used wisely. I use my credit card for all my travel bookings. It's quick, it allows me to book online and I get instant discounts. I also use my card during my trip as it is a lot safer than carrying hundreds of dollars in cash in your pockets.
But I respect one fundamental rule: I pay my bills, every month, without exception. If you can't respect that rule, you are better not to use a credit card because you will end up loosing money (due to high interest rates). Remember, we are looking for ways to save money to make the most out of your trip to Maui Hawaii, not loose money.
