WestJet Rewards has become well known for offering various status match offers during the year and the latest one just launched today. The difference with this one over the past few offers as they have expanded the list of airline frequent flyer programs they will match from. Still shy of the best ever offer a few years ago where they matched any program including hotel programs. Nonetheless, status match offers are always welcome and here is the gist of this one:
From now until December 15 you can submit the form on WestJet’s Status Match Offer page with all your details like name, WestJet Rewards # and proof of status from Altitude, VIPorter, AAdvantage, United MileagePlus, Alaska Mileage Plan or British Airways Executive Club showing your name, current 2019 status valid through to a minimum December 31, 2019. Once approved, you will then receive WestJet Rewards Silver or Gold status until March 31, 2020 as follows:
To extend your status beyond March 31 you can take part in their challenges two challenges. Challenge one requires only one flight on WestJet by March 31 to extend your status to June 30 as follows:
- AC Altitude and Porter members must take minimum one WestJet flight anywhere
- US carriers: AA, Alaska and UA must take minimum one U.S.transborder flight
- British Airways members must take minimum one transatlantic flight
And if you want to extend your status even further (into June 2021) you must meet the following Challenge 3 spending requirement:
- Gold members with a minimum qualifying spend of $3,000 between the date of upgrade in Challenge 1 and June 30, 2020 will retain Gold status for another year, until June 30, 2021. Silver members that have a minimum qualifying spend of $1,500 between the date of upgrade in Challenge 1 and June 30, 2020 will retain Silver status for another year until June 30, 2021.
And that’s all of it in a nutshell! So a quick recap, if you have status with any of the above listed airlines you can automatic status with WestJet for the next 4.5 months. If you want to have the status extended you must meet the Challenge 2 and 3 requirements as set out above.
Also remember that right now WestJet is offering an increased sign up bonus on their WestJet Rewards World Elite Mastercard. This offer provides 350 WestJet dollars after your first purchase on the card! And it provides the best annual companion voucher in Canada!
