Trade airline vouchers?

[travelfilter] What's the best way to trade one airline's voucher/credit for credit on another?

I have ~$900 credit on JetBlue. I don't want to fly JetBlue, I want to fly on Hawaiian. Points.com is not useful here. What does the hive mind recommend for a trustworthy process of matching my desire to trade with that of another traveler with credit on another airline?

Thanks!

There are sites where people do this. I would make inquiries over on Flyer Talk (I don't think FT allows swaps on the board itself, but you could register and ask the mods.)

There are lots of recommendations for this when you google "transferring airline vouchers" and it appears that the answer differs airline to airline.

FlyerTalk has a "Coupon Connection" board which, I believe, is only visible to members who make a certain minimum number of posts elsewhere in the community. Note that "Coupon Connection" cannot be used for cash or cash-like transactions. There always seems to be a fairly high amount of postings, but it is very much a reputation-based transaction scheme so board newbies may have a hard time getting their trades to clear.

Also, certain types of credits/vouchers are non-transferrable so check the exact terms of your JetBlue credit.
