WestJet 的新常旅客计划

2018年10月17日更新:WestJet将在2018年底或2019年初推出一个新的精英会员级别——白金会员。具体请看下方正文。


【本文首发于2016年12月1日】加国理财网前面介绍过WestJet的常旅客计划(点击查看)。从2017年2月6日开始,WestJet将会更新他们的常旅客计划。主要改变有以下一些:

1)银卡会员的入门资格从原先的12个月机票消费$4000降到了$3000。金卡会员入门资格仍然是$6000(在白金会员出来后,金卡会员入门门槛会降低到$5000)。

2)原先Teal会员里面还分2级,现在合并成一个。

3)原先精英会员必须年消费达标后,才能在买机票时得到更高回报,如下图中银卡会员需要在该日历年消费过$4000,才能在买机票时得到5%的回报。

在新计划中,买机票时的回报直接和你当时的精英级别挂钩。With the new tier structure, we're making it simpler to understand how you'll earn WestJet dollars on WestJet flights and vacation packages by directly tying your earn rates to your tier status at time of flight date, rather than how much you've spent to date on WestJet flights in your qualifying year.

对比新旧2张表,可见Teal $1500以上消费级别和银卡消费级别的机票回报都降低了。不过,WestJet宣布,这2类会员可以在2018年1月31日前,仍然享受原先的购票回报率。

注意:精英会员送的伴飞票并不和你的级别挂钩,仍然需达到年消费额才有。

以上的改变,对金卡会员肯定是利好,但大家有疑问,银卡会员的买机票回报从5%降到3%,那是不是对银卡会员不利呢?WestJet解释的很清楚,这个变化,对所有银卡会员来说也是利好的【WestJet没提的是,如果你是银卡会员且年消费接近$6000,你获得的回报会比旧规则少些】。

4)原先达到Teal $1500以上消费级别时送的$35 WestJet Dollars没有了。

此外,精英会员的福利也没有改变,聚沙顺便在这里给大家refresh一下吧:

聚沙认为这次WestJet常旅客计划的改变,总体上还是变好变简单了,大家的看法呢?其他具体信息请见官网:https://www.westjet.com/en-ca/rewards/program-details/tiers/2017-changes

2017年7月6日更新:从6月6日开始,绝大部分你得到的WestJet Dollars将不会过期了(包括通过RBC WestJet信用卡得到的积分)。

Effective June 6, 2017, we’ve made some changes to WestJet dollar expiry. Most WestJet dollars no longer expire, but some still will. We can explain.

WestJet dollars directly earned from purchase transactions with WestJet or its partners, including a WestJet Credit Card, will no longer expire. We refer to these as base WestJet dollars as they represent the base amount, or minimum, you earn on eligible transactions.

Bonus WestJet dollars awarded through promotions, compensation, or limited-time promotional offers will continue to have expiry dates.

Need an example? 
Let’s say you’re a Teal Rewards member and you’ve paid for and taken a flight with WestJet – the base amount of WestJet dollars you earned (i.e. 1% back in WestJet dollars on WestJet flights) are yours to keep for as long as you want, and use however you’d like. No expiry. Then, on your next trip you decide to take advantage of a Rewards offer which awards bonus WestJet dollars. The bonus WestJet dollars you’ve been awarded will have an expiry date. So basically, base WestJet dollars don’t expire; bonus WestJet dollars do.

2018年10月17日更新:Westjet将在2018年底或2019年初推出一个新的精英会员级别——白金会员,同时也会对原有的精英级别做些改进【多谢“浩浩”提供信息】。白金会员的入门资格将是每年符合要求的$8000消费(买Westjet机票是按票价100%累积,如果是买Westjet Vacations Packages则是20%累积)。而且白金卡会员在买Westjet机票时可得到8%回报,在买Vacations Packages时可得到2%回报。

此外白金会员还有很多不错的福利,具体请看下图(可点击放大):

此外,当用户每年符合要求的消费超过$4000后,还可以获得Milestone awards(然后每多消费$2000还会有新的awards):
