  • Registered members may earn a maximum of one tier upgrade from your status as of September 10, 2020.

The Offer Period runs from September 10 – December 9 and will be divided into three tracking periods, each consisting of approximately 30 days:

  • Period 1: September 10 – October 9, 2020
  • Period 2: October 10 – November 9, 2020

  3. Period 3: in your account by December 23, 2020

Ensure enough time has gone by in order for it to be processed.

It depends. Once registered, all eligible purchases made under your WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard account (including purchases on supplementary cards) during the tracking period in which registration takes place (including those made immediately prior to registration), and subsequent tracking periods, will be eligible for the Offer. Credit card purchases made in any previous tracking period prior to registration will not be eligible. For greater clarity, if an Eligible Cardholder registers for the Offer during period 2, all eligible purchases made during periods 2 and 3 will be eligible for the Offer, however, purchases made in period 1 will not.

Like the WestJet dollar earnings, only the primary cardholder will earn the bonus qualifying spend for this offer. Qualifying spend boost can be earned on purchases made by a secondary cardholder but will be deposited in the registered primary cardholder’s account. Secondary cardholders are not required to register separately for the offer.

You will see the qualifying spend in your WestJet account and in transaction history. The qualifying spend boost deposit will be complete within 45 days of purchase.

Yes, you will be sent a “Welcome to your tier” email with a link to view your new benefits.

You can find your WestJet Rewards ID on a WestJet email or sign into your WestJet account on westjet.com or in the WestJet app.

Yes, the maximum is one tier upgrade during the promotion period from September 10 – December 9, 2020, including any spend boost earned through regular WestJet flight and vacation package activity.


If you register for the Offer and reach the next tier through regular program activity before the QS boost is credited to your account, you will not earn QS boost on credit card purchases during the Offer Period, and will no longer be eligible for the Offer.
