As you know, I am a sucker for deals, especially when they are financial deals. I was on one of my favourite websites, Red Flag Deals and came across a great deal that is currently being offered by the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).
The deal that is being offered is that if you apply for the WestJet RBC World MasterCard, you will receive 100 WestJet dollars AND a $99 round trip companion flight.
There is also a secondary deal with the WestJet RBC MasterCard which offers a bonus of 50 WestJet dollars on your first purchase.
How does the deal work?
Well as I mentioned, to get the deal you will have to first apply (and of course get approved) for the WestJet RBC World MasterCard.
The $99 companion fare is valid once you have purchased another seat on any WestJet operated flight in Canada or to the continental US.
One thing that you need to keep in mind is that the $99 companion ticket does not include any taxes, fees or surcharges.
Now the 100 WestJet dollars can be used towards any flight with WestJet, best of all, it does include the $99 companion fare.
Is this deal worth it?
Now the fact is, the WestJet RBC World MasterCard offers 1.5% back in WestJet dollars on every purchase, and 2% back in WestJet dollars when you purchase WestJet flights or vacations.
It also includes a premium suits of insurance coverage, which includes trip interruption insurance, out of country/ province emergency medical coverage and much more.
The only problem I have with this credit card is that the annual fee is $79, however the secondary deal is that through the WestJet RBC MasterCard, the annual fee is only $39.
The WestJet RBC MasterCard allows you to earn 1% back in WestJet dollars on every purchase, and 2% back in WestJet dollars when you purchase WestJet flights or vacations.
This deal will be around till September 30th, 2012. Be sure to lock it in before it flies away!
