WestJet Rewards: Earn up to 3X WestJet Dollars on select routes in Western Canada

WestJet has launched a nice new flight bonus for members of their Rewards program flying on select routes within Western Canada. This bonus actually surprises me a little as these should be relatively strong routes for WestJet without the need of an incentive but as we always say here at RC sometimes it doesn't matter how well a route is doing it is all about rewarding loyalty even if they already have your business! This is a great bonus for primarily business travellers who ply these routes often as you may earn up to 9% in WestJet Rewards dollars if you are at the 3% base earn rate! When I was in Oil & Gas there were hundreds of workers flying daily to Ft. Mac and GP so hopefully any of you doing these routes out of Edmonton for that reason will take advantage of it!  The terms are a bit vague in that the bonus is only good on non-stop flights and not connecting itineraries so we're not sure at this time if you'll earn a bonus on a routing like Calgary-Edmonton-Grande Praire. Will you earn the bonus on all legs or since it is a connecting itinerary will you not receive anything? Hopefully WestJet can chime in and let us know! 

- First of all, I had a total moment of forgetfulness when I posted this this morning when I was wondering why they were bonusing these routes and the reason is that Air Canada has bonuses on these routes too which we covered a couple of weeks ago! That's why! WestJet is responding to AC and even the URL should have clued me into it as it states 'offermatch'!
- Secondly, I reached out the WestJet and they responded that the offer is strictly for non-stops, so my example of flying Calgary-Edmonton-Grande Prairie would not qualify for any bonus.
