Miles can only be transferred within a household and cannot be bought or sold.
You can apply for an Hawaiian Air MasterCard, spend $1,000 and get 50,000 miles.
The 35K offer is one of their offers - there is also one for 50K miles.
I'm sorry, but you cannot solicit miles on TUG.
I do not believe that you can "legally" buy miles except from Hawaiian Air.
You could go ahead and book your out-bound flight, and then book your in-bound flight later.
Hawaiian Airlines program is becoming a lot less friendly. My trip to Honolulu on 01/07/17 returning on 01/31/17 priced out as follows:
2 RT tickets $1,394 in cash or
2 RT tickets 40,000 miles + &1,400.
What a ripoff.
I'm interested in how to do this. I will admit to having VERY LITTLE knowledge about how to use points for miles.. This is my next thing to start studying,You should use Flying Blue to Hawaii. You can get to Hawaii for 25k miles. You will end up flying on Delta metal. Flying Blue is a transfer partner of Chase, Citi, Starwood, and AMEX. DM me if you want more details.
