Chase credit cards are hard to get but if you are under 5/24 (5 accounts opened/closed in last 24 months) then one of the best deals as of now is the Chase Southwest credit cards where you can earn total of 75k points after spending $5k (40k points after $1k spend in 90 days and remaining 35k points after spending additional $4k in first 6 months of account opening)
This also gets you closer to companion pass which requires 125k points to be earned in a calendar year (The pass is valid from the time you earn 125k points in the year to the end of next calendar year). The best part is Southwest points are valued at ~1.4 cents/point to ~1.6 cents/point and when you use points for reservation there is no penalty if you cancel (You do not even need the same passenger to use the points again) and the entire points go back to your Southwest account.
Southwest flies to many airports including islands of Hawaii!! Here is the Southwest route map which would be useful for you to decide if its worth taking the credit card. Southwest Airlines has lot of fare sales where the price between certain city pairs could be as low as $29 when purchasing the fare which when booked with points would translate to about ~1016 points + $5.60 in fees and taxes. Also Southwest airlines points do not expire as long as you have 1 qualifying earning activity every 24 months.
The card comes in various variants with annual fees of $69, $99 and $149 and currently all these cards come with sign up bonus offer of 75k miles!! So if you are eyeing this card now is the time to get it.
