WestJet Status Match

- The US (including Hawaii and Alaska)
- The Caribbean
- Central and South America
- A few destinations in Europe
Right now, they’ll match your top-tier elite status from ANY travel rewards program, if you sign-up and send proof of your status by September 23, 2016. And take 1 WestJet fly by October 31, 2016.
This is an interesting promotion because they’ll match your status from ANY type of travel rewards program, including airlines, hotels, gas rewards, or credit cards. Usually, airlines only match your status from another airline.
And although the promotion requires “top-tier” status with another program, it could be worth signing-up if you have status that is close to the highest tier. Because it only takes a few minutes to sign-up and send proof of your status. Even a screenshot should work!
What Do You Get With WestJet Gold Status?
With top-tier status from WestJet, you’ll get:
- 2 free checked bags
- 10 airport lounge passes
- No fees for same-day flight changes requested at check-in
- Advance boarding
- Priority screening (at select airports)
- 4 advance seat selection vouchers
Ways to Save Money on WestJet Flights
Unfortunately, WestJet is NOT part of the Ritz-Carlton Visa Infinite program, because it is a budget airline. So you will not be able to get the $100 airline credit from the Chase Ritz-Carlton card.
This is an easy way to earn top-tier elite status if you want to fly with WestJet this fall. Let me know if you plan to match your status!
