The Hawaii Gold Card A3H
Hawaii gold Card provides Hawaii discounts and benefits for you and up to three additional people with you. Discounts on everything from activities to dining. Special 50% off tickets available on a first come first served policy. Free guide books delivered to your home along with a credit type card for use. Even if you forget to order in time they can be picked when you arrive. This card is great for when you have a spur of the moment schedule to keep.
Have a Costco card, bring it. If you are staying in a condo stop on your way out of the Airport and the Costco is to your left at the main intersection. Be quick and be smart on buying only what you need. If you are not going to eat all the bulk that they sell you can probably do better at one of the regular grocery stores.
We know how to do this. On Tuesday in the Maui News newspaper there are store coupon inserts to use and enjoy. Look for Safeway (join value club while here), FoodLand (join value club while here), and Star Market. The large grocery stores are located through out the island but I found that food prices seem to vary by location. Lahaina and Kahului seemed to have lower prices, this may have been my imagination as I was still in sticker shock mode. Long Drugs while not a full grocery store does have great sales. See them through-out the island. Any store you go in you will appreciate any Hawaii discounts you can find.
Farmers markets are a big deal, besides meeting the local farmers you also get a chance to bargain. Here if you are staying in a Maui Condo, farmers markets are the way to go. Serious Hawaii discounts can be found from the grocery store pricing. This listing was good last time I was there.
