hmm my first shell fill up showed up with STB but my second one did not...

November 24: filled up $35 gas and bought $25 amazon gift card - prepaid in the store. receipt in the store showed promo 940. receipt at the pump showed STB bonus. STB bonus points showed up on account a couple days later.

December 2: filled $55 gas - prepaid in store (different shell gas station). receipt in the store showed promo 940. receipt at the pump DID NOT show STB bonus. airmiles account did not receive STB bonus miles.

Damn shell... does anyone know if you HAVE to purchase something other than gas to get the points?

has anyone successfully got the shell STB for both different offer dates?
maybe something to do with the prepaid as i did gas only, paid after, and got the bonus....but took a week to show on website

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!
My car takes premium, easy to hit $50 in gas that way. Even taking over $50 in gas (twice) and having promo 940 on the receipt (twice) I still didn't get the 10 bonus miles (twice). I'll have to contact air miles again, but that's what I expect from this program.

Yes, you're right you can also do $1 amazon GC's 25 times.

EDIT: DON'T FORGET TO OPT IN BY GOING TO shoptheblock.ca and clicking on the MC BMO offer first before you buy the GC's

Wasn't there also a couple of guys who paid off their cell phone bill in several $1 increments?

You can pay your Rogers bill in small increments too. If you pay it by phone, you don't need to enter in the credit card details each time.

Be careful what you wish for. They might make it tougher like 10 offers for hearing aid for people ages 50 and up.

Never again am I doing this. I went to Sobeys again and did single transactions. No AM on the receipt. Was told to go to CS and he manually put it in but I doubt it would even be associated with STB. Tried both Cadbury and herbal. Fail. Face With Head-bandage

Maybe I’ll try another location or I’m gonna get diabetes from all these Cadbury’s.

That sucks. Shampoos & chocolates & Taco seemed to be the easy ones but you had issues twice already. So perhaps it was the location. Where did you go? Metcalfe or Orleans or Barrhaven? I did 4 offers in one receipt and all the bonus AMs were there at Orleans location about 3 weeks back

Thanks to everyone that confirmed the HBC to AM conversion BAM's posted. Checked mine and there they are. 5 confirmed offers completed, 3 offers awaiting confirmation but easily proven completed.

Also thanks to @Erumuh for the Collector Relations Team's contact info in post #1719, added to the main posting for future easy reference (hoping not many have to contact them).
