WestJet RBC® Mastercards: Convert Companion Vouchers into WestJet Dollars

One of the main draws of the WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard and the WestJet RBC® Mastercard is the companion voucher, which is given to members each year. 

If used strategically, it can result in savings on a flight booking for two, and it’s also possible to convert the World Elite voucher into four lounge passes for the WestJet Elevation Lounge in Calgary and other contract lounges within WestJet’s network.

For a limited time, select WestJet RBC® cardholders have the option to convert their companion voucher into WestJet Dollars, which can be used to book a WestJet Vacations package.

Convert WestJet Companion Vouchers into WestJet Dollars

WestJet has sent out limited-time offer emails to select cardholders of the WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard and the WestJet RBC® Mastercard.

If you’re eligible, you can convert your companion voucher into WestJet Dollars, which must then be used to book a WestJet Vacations package.

The amount of WestJet Dollars your companion voucher will be converted to depends on which credit card you currently hold and the offer you’ve received:

  • WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard companion vouchers can be converted into 200 or 300 WestJet Dollars for WestJet Vacations packages
  • WestJet RBC® Mastercard companion vouchers can be converted into 100 WestJet Dollars for WestJet Vacations packages

If you choose to convert your companion voucher, the WestJet Dollars will expire on the same date as your companion voucher would have. For example, if your voucher was set to expire on December 1, 2023, your converted WestJet Dollars will also expire on that date.

Therefore, make sure you’re able to use them before they’re set to expire. You can combine them with your existing balance of WestJet Dollars available in your account.

You must register to make the exchange, using the link provided in the email. Registration takes place from November 8–22, 2023, and then you’ll need to make your booking prior to the expiry date of the converted WestJet Dollars.

The converted WestJet Dollars will appear in your account within seven days of making the request.

There aren’t any restrictions on travel periods, and all WestJet Vacations packages are eligible for booking with the converted WestJet Dollars. Your WestJet Dollars will be applied against the base package price of any WestJet Vacations booking, and you’ll still need to pay the remaining balance, as well as the applicable taxes and fees.

If you have multiple companion vouchers available in your account, you’re able to convert them all into WestJet Dollars through this promotion.

More Flexibility for WestJet Companion Vouchers

This promotion offers more flexibility for members with available companion vouchers in their accounts.

If you happen to have a companion voucher that’s set to expire or that you won’t use, consider redeeming it for WestJet Dollars through this offer and then have a look at WestJet Vacations packages to make use of the value.

This is particularly useful for solo travellers with a companion voucher available, who may otherwise find it difficult to use, especially if they don’t live in Calgary, or who can’t benefit from converting it into contract lounge passes.

If you’re someone who tends to book the lowest fares available, then you might actually get more value by converting your companion voucher into WestJet Dollars for WestJet Vacations packages. This is because the companion voucher is much more valuable if you book higher fares to begin with, and is less useful for booking lower fares.

Keep in mind that there’s currently a record-high offer on the WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard for up to 700 WestJet Dollars, available until March 14, 2024.

Should this promotion prove to be popular with members, it could become a permanent feature on the card, as was the case with the possibility of converting it into lounge passes instead

Conclusion

WestJet has launched a limited-time promotion for eligible cardholders of the WestJet RBC® Mastercard and the WestJet RBC® World Elite Mastercard. If you’ve been sent an email from WestJet, you can convert your available companion vouchers into 100–300 WestJet Dollars, which must be put towards a WestJet Vacations package.

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, you have until November 22, 2023, to follow the link sent out in the email. The converted WestJet Dollars will appear in your WestJet Rewards account within seven days, and then they’ll expire on the same date as your companion voucher would have.

This promotion gives you a third option for redeeming a companion voucher, which could be a great way to squeeze some value out of it if you weren’t otherwise going to use it.
