Status Lift

With this new and exciting benefit, your everyday purchases on the WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard will now help bring you closer to achieving the next tier status with Status Lift, getting you travel benefits faster.1

How Status Lift works

Receive a Status Lift of $500 in tier qualifying spend for every $15,000 in everyday purchases on your WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard.1 You can earn three lifts each qualifying year (January 1 – December 31) for a total of $1,500 in tier qualifying spend. For our Teal members that's halfway to Silver status.

What is tier qualifying spend?

Tier qualifying spend tracks your progress towards achieving Silver, Gold or Platinum status in the WestJet Rewards program each qualifying year (January 1 to December 31). It includes 100% of the amount spent on eligible base fares, 20% of the individual portion of the base price of eligible WestJet Vacations packages, and now includes amounts earned through Status Lift with your WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard.

The benefits of Platinum, Gold and Silver status

Achieving top-tier status with WestJet Rewards is simple because it’s based entirely on tier qualifying spend, not a complicated formula involving miles travelled or number of flights flown. As you move up through our Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers you’ll enjoy increasingly higher WestJet dollar earn rates and receive more benefits like free checked bags, advance seat selection, lounge access, priority boarding, and more.
