On Monday I did Sobeys offers for three accounts:
First one, I did three separate transactions for Tia Rosa, Chocolates and Herbal Essence shampoos , no redemption, total bonus of 10, 20 and 30 posted as 60 air miles +1
Second one, same three transactions but also tried the 95 Miles redemption coupon with one transaction, which only showed up as PLU (I think 28) while all the other coupons showed up with proper associated miles on each receipt. Same fate, 60+1 posted to the account, no sign of 25 for redeeming 95 .
Third account, I did two transactions for Tia Rosa and chocolates and 30 +1 posted. Third transaction was done with the 25 when you redeem 95 coupon only and again only PLU showed up and 25 have not shown up yet.

Today I did Foodland redeem 95 for 25 bonus miles for all three and only PLU # showed up, did one more for two Nestle creamers and added some stuff and redeemed 95 without coupon and 20 (WUB 2) and 15 bonus (WUB 2) showed up on the receipt.

So, with various combinations it's quite clear that the 25 bonus for redeeming 95 is not showing up for the time being, but definitely should eventually.
The biggest let down was Shell, all of 1 mile for shelling out $51 Face With Rolling Eyes
Interesting. So you received the product bonus when it was combined with the 95 redemption. I wonder why I didn’t get it. Unless it had to do with the fact that I had more than one product bonus.

I had a single transaction with Cadbury, tia, herbal and redeemed 95. Receipt showed all PLUs but only earned the +1 on the receipt and in my account that was posted today.

I’m gonna try single transactions tmr to see if it accepts it.

Anyone else experiencing issues doing the foodland redeem 95 air miles in Ontario? When the cashier scanned the coupon code, the system wouldn’t let me redeem my miles. Account was unlocked. I was able to redeem my miles if the coupon wasn’t loaded. Also tried redeeming miles first and adding coupon afterwards which did not work either. Tried at two different foodland locations and had the exact same problem.

Looks like their website is still unavailable, maybe they are adding new offers? :)

Do we have to spend $20 when we use the bonus orders like at IGA or can we just use the bonus offer alone??

The general consensus seems to be to ensure BONUS MILES you need to at least earn a BASE MILE where it is more of an Offer than “a task” (so Grocery Stores - Shell etc) and you need the coupons. Redemption Miles / Bonuses may or may not work at the same time as Earning Bonuses... YMMV. But seems a lot of RFDers are getting one or the other.

Where it is a task... usually coupons are not needed (CC Offers with BMO / AMEX - HBC REWARDS Points Auto Conversion) and additional purchases may not be required ( but each is different for these type it’s really important to read & understand the fine print)

It is always a good idea to have something that will post in addition to the bonus offer. So if you buy an in-store bonus product or if you need to spend $20 to get a base mile, and it is posted in your AM account, but not the STB bonus, you at least have some confirmation about your purchase.

I got 30AM bonus from Sobeys for buying a pair of Herbal Essence without any base AM. I think for Sobeys, you will get what you see from the receipt. If there are bonus Airmiles on receipt, you will get them. Otherwise, you will not get even the receipt showing proper PLU, which is the case of Sobeys UF.

My second Shell offer posted today.
I noticed that I got an extra 2 AM compares to the other one.
1st purchase was gas + pack of gum to get over 50$
2nd purchase was gas + 25$ GC to get over 50$

Where does the extra 2 AM comes from?

So annoyed with Shell... grrrrr... brought other car down as I did not receive the offer on the last fill.

I was told that it had to be from SHELL - and the giftcards were from Needs .

I asked " What do you suggest ?"

He said most people have either been bring TWO cars down OR bringing a gas can.

GRRRR!

Cannot go to https://www.shoptheblock.ca/. Got the error: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable.

Was trying to use an offer that expires today. Those bar codes that are required during purchase are not available anywhere else. Right?
Site up again - but I don't see any new offers (for Ontario at least)

Did the Crockpot 10X offer.

Bought two of the portable units (for secret Santa) for $35 +filler to hit $40 for free shipping. Nothing posted yet but interestingly they have a field to put in your airmiles number and tell you how many miles you're going to get before you submit your order.

Also bought from mint.ca as one of the 3 partners on airmiles shop. You can buy some circulation coins at face value (5 quarters for 2.50, 5 loonies for $5) so at least you can get some of your money back haha. Nothing posted yet though.
