Is the 50 BAM only one per account? I had multiple purchases but only received the one 50 BAM.

Correct, only one bonus per collector number.

Oh, I thought you could use the coupon multiple times but it still only counted as 1 partner. Guess I'm out a couple hundred AMs

Ryan, unfortunately once per collector
Info was right on the STB 2019 Website Offer / Coupon
And also here, highlighted in the OP

Sorry, bud

But hey, if you got the 50 BAM POST
Then at least you can relax & know you also just got the PARTNER COUNT too

Got mine too

Think this the last of the Base Miles + Bonus Miles from STB 2019 that were PENDING
Plus confirms all my STB PARTNER COUNTS
So now just waiting on the STB 2019 BIG BONUS MILES

Come on Valentines ❤️ DAY

I got my 50, which is great because a few of my purchases from amazon shipped in multiple orders so I didn’t know if I’d get credit for the 100.

Still waiting on my Black Friday purchase of $100 from the source to count. At 20x, thats 100 air miles I’m missing. Is it 60 or 90 days before you can file a claim?

60 Days Minimum for Base Miles
And
75 Days Minimum for Bonus Miles
For a purchase made thru AirMiles Shops.ca

Where it gets confusing though is
When it’s tied to a BIG BONUS EVENT like STB 2019
The Retailers / PARTNER(s) have a longer time Report / POST

As the clock doesn’t start until the BIG BONUS EVENT is over

STB 2019 ended on December 27th
+ 60 Days (2 Months) = End of February
+ 75 Days (2.5 Months) = Mid March

Sometimes though ... AMs Customer Service will just try to blow you off if it hasn’t been 90 Days and involves AirMiles Shops.ca
And even the full 120 Days if it’s tied to a BIG BONUS EVENT

I get it though ... some of the AMShops Associated Retailers have HORRIBLE REPORTING practices
So much so ... that during BIG BONUS EVENTS ... where COUNTING PARTNERS or OFFERS are so important
Many of us long time collectors have a list of Stores we just don’t shop at during these events ... or if we do
We do so knowing that COUNTING on them is not reliable
And we add others into our list

Technically this isn’t for shop the block, this is for the Black Friday promotion. I’ll try after 75 days, though I haven’t even gotten the base miles from The Source yet.

Well actually ...

If you bought it on BLACK FRIDAY from AirMiles Shops.ca

Then ya ... technically it was part of the STB Promo during the same timeframe (that ran Nov 14th thru Dec 27th)
Also WHY I assume you posed your Question in this thread / forum rather than the RFD Annual Ongoing AirMiles thread

Cuz the timeframes / promos overlap ... more than likely any Missing Miles Inquiry you file, they are pretty much gonna put you off until the clock started ticking down on December 28th
+ 60 DAYS = End of February ... Base Miles
+ 90 DAYS = End of March ... Bonus Miles
120 DAYS = Date by which AirMiles has to POST ALL MILES

Echoing everyone else, my 50 bonus miles just posted yesterday as well.

Now all 3 of my completed offers have posted correctly with base and bonus miles. So all I still need are the 300 bonus miles for STB, which I assume will be coming later.
