Yes it does...
But unlike the current SHELL RETAIL GASOLINE Offer
It’s not an opt in one ... you have to show the STB 2019 Coupon

AND most importantly
The Cashier has to get it punched in properly to the register :rolleyes:
LOTS of issues with that in ALL Shell AMs Promotions

There have been other reported issues as well
So you might want to read thru this thread
Especially the TIPS & TRICKS Section

As well, at times SHELL has been known to BATCH POST
So there also might be that happening

Did anyone notice Shell posting their AM now takes a day or 2 longer than previously? I did gas fill-up and bought a GC on Wednesday, today neither account has posted the BAM even though I had STB the BAM printed on the receipts. It used to take 2 days but last couple of times, I noticed it was 3 or 4 days

I bought $15 Tim Horton GC from Shell on Nov. 24th. The miles are still not posted. The attendant did scan the coupon, and the receipt showed PROMO 939 on it. Funny thing is the PROMO 939 showed as a separate line and cost $0.01 so my receipt total was actually for $15.01, and that was the amount charged to creditcard. Anyone else has the same experience? And it's been three weeks, no sign of the 5 BAMs.

Yes, only one out of many in-store purchases had .01 added on the 939 line, also on Nov 24, so it might be specific to the date or to the station, as it was the only time I shopped at that particular Shell. I got the miles within a few days as expected. Since you didn't, it may be worth to chat with AM, so you don't need to wait 120 days.

As I stated in Reply # 61 above
Sometimes, especially during AMs BIG BONUS Events, Shell is one of the AMs Partners who choose to BATCH POST
That may very well be the hold up on seeing your BAMs POSTED

When did Shell stop carrying SDM GCs?

Went to Richmond Parliament none, went to Spadina/Front none so I tried buying a Canadian Tire but the poor cashiers didn't know how to scan/sell it me

Maybe I'll just have to buy some overpriced soda or candy bars (before Dec 27!)

I bought one yesterday in Ottawa. There were about 30 on the rack so YMMV

Nope ... from Shell’s website
STEP FOUR Redeem AIR MILES Cash

Get $10 off at the pump or instore (excluding tobacco, gift cards and phone cards) for every 95 AIR MILES Cash Miles redeemed. You can use AIR MILES Cash Miles in $10 increments up to $60 per transaction. Maximum 5 transactions up to $300 per day at Shell or $750 per day across all AIR MILES partners.
https://www.shell.ca/en_ca/motorists/lo ... -cash.html

Not unusual, cuz of scammers & fraud, most Loyalty Programs have very strict rules surrounding GCs

I did a transaction last night and it also added .01 to my bill when she scanned the coupon. The receipt doesn’t show anything about 939 promo on it and only shows 1am earned, though I did hear the barcode scan when she scanned it.

That 1 cent thing is something I have found at several Retailers when they ring thru a coupon
Be it $ 0.01 added on
Or $ 0.01 deducted (Costco.ca does this if you punch in your Aeroplan info to earn points on the purchase)

So, I would say ...
Your coupon did indeed go thru

My Shell Retail STB Offer POSTED very quickly
BOTH the Base Miles + the STB 5 BAMs

Uhh, maybe this isn't the place for you.

I appreciate @PointsHubby's efforts to keep STB discussions in the appropriate threads.
