Making It Easier To Earn

WestJet has unveiled its enhanced and energized WestJet Rewards program, simplifying the user experience, along with the ability to earn more rewards, faster.
Marshall Wilmot, senior vice-president, marketing and digital for WestJet, said: “We have been continuously working to make WestJet Rewards the best rewards program available to Canadians, and these changes reflect these efforts.”
Wilmot noted that: “As of today, WestJet Rewards has no more anniversary earn rate resets, no more changing earn rates at different spend levels, three easy-to-understand tiers and lower qualification to the Silver tier.”
And he added: “We are known for listening to our guests and this program is tailor-made to meet the needs of travellers, making it easier than ever to receive flight benefits and travel for business or pleasure with WestJet.”
Highlights of the updated program include:

  • WestJet flights and vacation packages earn rates tied to tier status at time of flight date.
    Teal members earn one per cent back on flights flown and 0.5 per cent back on vacation packages.
    Silver members earn three per cent back on flights flown and one per cent back on vacation packages.
    Gold members earn five per cent back on flights flown and one per cent back on vacation packages.
  • A simplified structure for Teal, with one set of earn rates on flights and vacation packages.
  • A reduced spend to reach the Silver tier – $1,000 less than the previous requirement.
  • A new priority support phone number, available to Gold members exclusively through the WestJet app.
  • Milestone awards continue to be tied to qualifying flight spend in any given qualifying year.
