Offer Extended – $0 companion fare + 350 WestJet dollars with the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard

WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard

WestJet and RBC have once again extended the offers on their co-brand credit cards. Namely, the $0 companion voucher offer on the WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard has been extended for applications completed by December 5 and the card’s 350 dollar bonus on first purchase and the 2x dollars on select purchases will continue to August 31. The base level WestJet RBC Mastercard also continues with its increased welcome offer of 100 WestJet dollars.

Here are details of the extended offers:

WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard

A very healthy 350 WestJet dollars after first purchase plus 2x the WestJet dollars on groceries, restaurants and food delivery for the first 3 months is the new offer for this card. This means you’ll earn a 3% return for each dollar you spend in those categories instead of 1.5%. I like this welcome offer as you only have to spend $1 to get that initial welcome bonus of 350 WestJet dollars and you don’t have to stress about meeting any minimum spend requirements. You can simply go out and buy your groceries, support your local restaurants and have your food delivered and earn those 2x dollars – doesn’t matter whether you spend $50 or $5,000 in the span of those 3 months.

The welcome bonus doesn’t end there however. If you are a regular visitor to Rewards Canada you most likely know the World Elite version of the card has featured a $0 companion voucher since late February and it continues to be part of the extended welcome offer. This voucher is valid for flights to all WestJet destinations excluding their Trans-Atlantic routes. You have one year from the date the voucher is issued to book your travel and with flight schedules typically going out almost a year this effectively gives you almost two years before you actually have to travel. To receive the $0 companion voucher you must apply for the card by December 5, 2021

If you choose to use it to on
flights to the Caribbean, Hawaii or Mexico this new promotional voucher
provides the cardholder with an additional savings of $399 as that is
the typical fee when using vouchers to those destinations. Add this to
the 350 WestJet dollars you get on the first purchase and you have no less than $630 in value if you redeem at this top level ($749 –
$119 annual fee). I say ‘no less’ as that’s not taking into the savings
already provided by the voucher on the actual ticket price. For example
if you book a flight to the Caribbean which is $500 per person before
taxes and fees that second voucher is saving you the full $500. On top
of that you can always look at getting a second card in your household,
especially if you travel as a group of four or more as you’ll can take
advantage of using two vouchers. (see Why my wife and I each grabbed our own WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercards)

The card that almost never seems to have an increased welcome bonus got an increased welcome bonus today! You’ll earn the standard 50 WestJet dollars on your first purchase with the card and then if you spend $1,000 on the card in the first three months you’ll receive an additional 50 WestJet dollars for 100 WestJet dollars in total. This card has a $39 annual fee but does come with an annual credit card companion voucher for round-trip travel within Canada and the continental U.S. for $199 CAD (plus taxes, fees and other ATC charges)
