Eligible spend is the total base amount of the completed transaction. Changes made at the supplier, taxes, fees, charges, ancillary items or extras are not included in the eligible spend for earning WestJet dollars. WestJet dollars are awarded to the WestJet Rewards ID associated to the purchase, regardless of who paid for the transaction.

Such proportionate shares will be determined at WestJet’s sole discretion and in no event will the sum of all proportionate shares exceed the total eligible spend of the booking. Eligible spend on a WestJet Vacations Land-Only Booking may include any combination of hotel, car rental, attractions, transfers and/or meal plans, but excludes all taxes, fees, and other charges.
WestJet dollars will be banked to your member account. See www.westjet.com/rewards for details regarding WestJet dollar earning and redemption.
WestJet dollars and Qualifying Spend are maintained with Canadian equivalent currency. WestJet dollars and Qualifying Spend are rounded to the nearest dollar.

WestJet may change the basis on which WestJet dollars are awarded (including the rates at which Qualifying Spend is accumulated and WestJet dollars are earned) at any time, with or without notice, in WestJet's sole discretion.
Additional WestJet dollars are also earned on eligible WestJet Credit Card purchases made directly with WestJet or WestJet Vacations. See www.westjet.com/rewards for details.

For Partner Eligible fares, the applicable timeframe to submit a retroactive request may vary; see www.westjet.com/rewardspartners for details. In all cases, you are responsible for providing all documentation evidencing the transaction within such timeframe.

G. Qualifying Spend
Qualifying Spend arising from the purchase of a WestJet Eligible Fare for a WestJet-Marketed Flight will be prorated amongst all flown segments on the ticket according to IATA prorate standards.
Qualifying Spend arising from the purchase of a WestJet Vacations Eligible Package will be calculated as a set percentage of the member’s proportionate share of the final base package price and processed as a single amount upon completion of travel.
Qualifying Spend will be accumulated to the WestJet Rewards® member who is the individual traveller and whose name and membership number appear on the ticket.
Combining Qualifying Spend between two or more different WestJet Rewards® members is not allowed. Your account will only hold the Qualifying Spend associated to your individual travel.
Qualifying Spend belongs to the account holder and not to the person or company who paid for the transaction giving rise to the Qualifying Spend or WestJet dollars.
Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars accumulated by a minor will be deposited in the minor's account. The minor's account and WestJet dollars may be administered by the minor's parent or legal guardian. Reward notifications will be sent to the email address on record (not necessarily the email address of the parent who purchased the ticket for the minor). In a divorce situation, either parent or guardian who wishes to challenge the email address on record will be required to provide WestJet with court orders indicating which parent or guardian has the legal right to establish the address of the minor.
Only the amount actually paid to WestJet or WestJet Vacations will be considered in the calculation of Qualifying Spend. If multiple seats are purchased or reserved for one traveller on the same flight or vacation package, only the amount actually paid to WestJet or WestJet Vacations will be considered as eligible toward the calculation of Qualifying Spend.
For determining Qualifying Spend on transactions in non-Canadian currency, the relevant amounts will be converted to Canadian currency by WestJet at a conversion rate determined by WestJet in its sole discretion.
Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars will be updated once the flight or vacation package has been completed. Please allow 30 business days for the Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars, if applicable, to be posted into your account after the completion of travel.
Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars will not be awarded in the case of refunded, void or unused tickets, including unused non-refundable tickets. Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars will also not be awarded if the member is considered a no-show for the flight or vacation package booking.
If you are re-accommodated by WestJet or WestJet Vacations to another WestJet- or partner-operated flight, Qualifying Spend will be based on the original eligible dollar value of your flight or vacation package. In the event your new flight is operated by a non-partner airline that does not participate in WestJet Rewards®, Qualifying Spend and WestJet dollars will not be awarded.
WestJet may also offer incentives based on accumulated Qualifying Spend in a Qualifying Year. Qualifying Spend will continue to accrue in a Qualifying Year if earned in that Qualifying Year, even if any or all of the WestJet dollars associated earned on that Qualifying Spend have been redeemed. Please visit www.westjet.com/rewards to find out more about the specific incentives and corresponding Qualifying Spend milestones required to obtain each incentive. WestJet reserves the right to change the available incentives and milestones at any time with or without notice.
Specific details regarding Qualifying Spend, the specific conditions for accumulating Qualifying Spend and reward levels are available at www.westjet.com/rewards.
Individual rewards issued by the Reward Program, which include WestJet dollars, companion vouchers, World Elite Companion Vouchers and Credit Card Companion Vouchers, flight benefit vouchers, or any other vouchers, are personal and cannot be assigned, sold, traded, willed or otherwise transferred except in accordance with these terms and conditions. Any assignment or transfer in violation of these rules will be void and may, at the discretion of WestJet result in the loss of membership in WestJet Rewards® or the cancellation of any WestJet rewards.
