Modifications to status qualification criteria due to COVID-19
May 2022 update
We understand that many of our members' travel plans continue to be disrupted, so we made the following changes in response to the current situation:
- We extended the status of existing Privilège and Premier members through April 30, 2023.
- We lowered the eligibility criteria, making it easier to qualify for Privilège or Premier status. Members who spent $500 or more (before taxes) on train travel from April 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022, reached Privilège level on May 1, while those who spent $1,000 (before taxes) and travelled 4 segments reached Premier level.
- We rolled over members' dollars spent and segments travelled balance at the end of the qualifying period that ended on March 31, 2022, into the current qualifying period (April 1, 2022, to March 31, 2023), giving them a head start towards qualifying for a top-tier status for the next benefit period.
