I bought a $25 LCBO gift card in the store; handed the cashier the coupon & watched him scan the coupon I gave him. But my receipt says Promo 940 and did not give me the 5 bonus miles. He and I double-checked the coupon and I gave him the correct one. I guess I will have to try again later. I'll ask him to enter it by hand next time.

Strange

As the Coupon Code for the SHELL GAS Offer is 940
The Coupon Code for instore SHELL RETAIL Offer is most definitely 939
(They match up with the last digits in the Bar Code #s on the Physical Coupons)

Do know though you are not alone in this issue / complaint
Back during MegaMiles 2019 other RFDers reported Cashiers who entered the wrong info ... so the Offer (be it Gas or Retail) wasn’t credited

IMO this is the worse part of Shell Offers
Operator Error ... misinformed / not trained

Sucks when you have to redo Offers

At least SHELL GAS smartened up and now offer an OPT IN option

I bought some $15 TH GCs during the short 10% Shell promo for MC. I immediately loaded them onto my TH app, I assume that's a safe place to put them. Might buy same for this offer, close to $10 and I probably won't shop at LCBO.

Can I pay for GCs (non-Shell) with a Shell GC? I have some from the 10% offer and would be happy to burn them off.

Thanks.

That's not exactly true for the coupons I printed off STB website, wonder if they're wrong.

Barcode for 25L is 0-49999-99940-7
Barcode for $10 is 4-99999-99391-0

Do those match the printed coupons? If not, it looks like $10 code needs the 0 taken off end and moved to start (and shove everyone down), then they would be more consistent.

Was in Shell last night to buy Amazon $25 GC x 2 and got 14 AMs and noticed a new promo for 20 AMs on select cards. Wasn't able to snap a pic of participating cards or details and wonder if anyone else has seen it too?

Yes, but unfotunately does not include Amazon. HBC $50, Uber $25, etc.

Yesterday I went back and the Cashier tried again. Immediately Promo 940 popped up on the register. So he voided/cancelled that; entered the bar code manually and Promo 939 came up instead. This time my receipt shows Promo 939; mentions STB and I have the correct number of air miles! He did it that way twice (two different air mile cards) for me. This morning I used the LCBO gift cards to purchase the Amarula cream.

I'm still struggling with this one, and I'm wondering if anyone can comment. I've been to 3 locations, and all have had an issue with the coupon printed from the website ('item not found'). I live chatted Airmiles today, and they told me to print a fresh coupon from the website b/c the Shell coupons had been updated. So I did that, tried again, and still the cashier said that it was scanning 'item not found'. If I ask the cashier to type in the bar code number for number, should that work instead, does anyone know?

Thanks in advance for your help!

The post immediately above yours indicates, Yes, the cashier should manually enter the code.
