  1. Earn rates on eligible WestJet-marketed flights and vacation packages are calculated as a percentage back in WestJet dollars on the base fare or package price paid; taxes, fees, charges and any portion of the base fare or package price paid with WestJet dollars are not eligible. Earn rates are subject to member’s tier status at time of travel. For more details, visit westjet.com/tiers.

In order to receive the additional 0.5% in WestJet dollars, WestJet or WestJet Vacations must appear as the merchant on your credit card statement. WestJet dollars are earned on net purchases only; they are not earned on cash advances (including RBC Royal Bank® credit card cheques, balance transfers, cash-like transactions and certain bill payments), interest charges or fees, and credits for returns and adjustments will reduce or cancel the WestJet dollars earned by the amounts originally charged.
