It’s officially posted, the long awaited much delayed WestJet Frequent Flyer program, called Frequent Guest has been revealed. I will have a more detailed review coming very soon but first impressions are mixed, I will need a little more time to digest this as there is lots involved here……..
You don’t get anything back until you spend $1500 with WestJet per year, see the following:
– Spend $1500 with WJ get $50 in WestJet Dollars
– Spend $4500 get $165 WestJet Dollars + 1 Complimentary Companion Ticket within Canada, 4 advance seat selection vouchers and two lounge passes ($500 value)
– Spend $6000 get $230 WestJet Dollars + 1 Complimentary Companion Ticket anywhere WestJet flies, 4 advance seat selection vouchers and two lounge passes ($800 value)
– Spend $7500 get $300 WestJet Dollars
Basically once you reach the $1500 you then start earning 2.5% in WestJet Dollars back on every dollar you spend with WestJet and 1% back on WestJet Vacations. The key is that you have to hit that $1500 level.
The annual spending resets every 12 months based upon when you joined and your WestJet dollars earned have a 5 year life span (they expire at the end of the 5th year after you earned them)
You can use WestJet dollars towards any flight or towards a WestJet vacations (Max $500 for WJV)
WestJet Vacation’s Packages do not count to any of the annual spend levels but will earn 1% in WestJet dollars once you reach the $1500 level.
You can also earn additional WestJet dollars with the WestJet RBC MasterCard and other bonus offers during the year.
Sign up before Dec 31, 10 and the $4500 award level is dropped to $3000 for the first year.
See all the details here and watch out for our complete and thorough review soon.
