Opinions Take Flight is a consumer survey panel that pays out Hawaiian Airlines Miles instead of cash. New members get 350 HawaiianMiles for joining and completing the first survey. I usually find these survey panels too tedious to participate in regularly, but I do at least one survey with them a year (per account) to keep my Hawaiian miles from expiring. Hawaiian miles otherwise expire after 18 months of inactivity.

You’ll need to verify your e-mail, fill out some profile information, and then they will ask you survey qualification questions. The good news is that even if you don’t qualify for a particular survey (which happens a lot), OpinionsTakeFlight.com will still give you 5 miles for trying.

Since my primary goal is to score any amount of quick miles to reset my miles expiration, I was happy with that. I’d rather get 5 miles (and expiration extension) for 5 minutes of work rather than 350 miles (and expiration extension) for 24 minutes of work anyway. Here is a screenshot of my account that shows my OTF miles keeping my Hawaiian miles active for the past two years:

Note the delay between “Activity date” and “Miles posted date” varied between 3 days and over 2 weeks. I recommend trying a survey every 11.5 months or so, as I don’t want them to close my account down due to inactivity if I don’t do any surveys in a 1-year period.

Bottom line. If you need a free and easy way to keep Hawaiian Airlines miles from expiring, sign up for Opinions Take Flight and try to take a survey at least once a year (I think they might mark your account inactive otherwise). You’ll get a least 5 miles, which will reset your 18-month expiration countdown.
