Credit cards command kudos

Everybody likes to get kudos here at WestJet. Our latest WestJet-wide kudos comes to us courtesy of Rewards Canada, which has named the WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard and the WestJet RBC MasterCard as the two top travel rewards credit cards in Canada.  Such recognition comes just a few weeks after we received a top ranking by MoneySense Magazine.

Earlier this fall polled Canadians to determine the best of the best in a field populated by more than 75 travel reward credit cards available in Canada.  In the Top Airline Credit/Charge Card category, the WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard ranked number one, with the WestJet RBC MasterCard coming in at a close second.

There are a few reasons why this card is generating a great deal of positive buzz, including the transparent nature of the entire WestJet Rewards program, the high value it provides to cardholders and the care we represent as a big part of our brand.  It is simple, it is straightforward, and now people are voting with their feet. We offer our guests a simple and straightforward WestJet Rewards program to help our guests collect and redeem in ways that are easy, flexible and tailored to the consumer.

The number-one-ranked WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard allows cardholders to earn WestJet dollars for every purchase made that can be redeemed in any amount, to anywhere WestJet flies, at any time.  The card also offers a welcome bonus of $250 WestJet dollars and an annual companion flight for $99, plus applicable taxes, fees and charges.

For a limited time, cardholders of the WestJet RBC World Elite MasterCard and the WestJet RBC MasterCard have even more reasons to celebrate with an exclusive opportunity to earn double WestJet dollars in return for using their card to buy WestJet flights or vacation packages this fall. Until December 15, cardholders could earn up to 6.5 per cent back in WestJet dollars on their WestJet travel purchases until December 15, 2013.
