Newbie here so please move this into the correct forum if this isn't it.
My HawaiianMiles cards is/has switched from VISA to Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard issued by Barclaycard. I was reading through the cardmember benefits and it said that to take advantage of any World Elite travel benefits I have to book through Carlson Wagonlit Travel. I guess I don't mind doing that. I mean I use my card to book flights on Orbitz or Expedia or Hawaiian Air without caring about the benefits. Is this how travel rewards cards work? I have a whole lot of learning to do. Does anyone else have this card? I guess I'm so used to not having benefits that I should start paying attention. Thanks for any guidance.
