[Shell] 7x Air Miles at Shell Convenience Stores (includes Gift Cards)

Shell has a promo now where you get 7x air miles for convenience store purchases. They have gift cards in their convenience stores, so this works out to slightly over 7% when collected as cash rewards when buying gift cards.

Minimum $10 spend, maximum $100 spend per transaction. Max 5 transactions per day. Standard offer is 1 AM for every $10, so this promo gives you 7 AM per $10.

The T&C says specifically that Shell Gift Cards are excluded, but I suspect that refers only to Shell branded gift cards. I bought a $100 Prepaid Mastercard and was able to get the full 70 points (shows up on the receipt, and also verified in my AM account). I don't see why it wouldn't apply to other gift cards, but perhaps someone else can try and confirm.

Offer valid March 27 to June 4, 2017

Rest of terms and conditions:
Get 7x AIR MILES Reward Miles on convenience store purchases with a minimum $10 spend. No fuel purchase required.
Offer valid March 27 to June 4, 2017 at participating Shell locations in in ON, MB, SK, AB, BC and NT only (excluding Shell FlyingJ locations). Get 7X the AIR MILES Reward Miles on a minimum $10 in-store purchase. No fuel purchase required and any fuel purchase will not count towards the $10 in-store purchase threshold. Maximum of 5 transactions per day. Multiplier offers apply to the base reward mile offer of 1 reward mile awarded per $10.00 in-store transaction (max $100.00). In-store purchase excludes Shell Gift Cards, Tobacco products, and Service Bay repairs. A valid AIR MILES® Card must be swiped at time of transaction. Offer may be combined with other bonus offers. Shell reserves the right to make changes to this offer and to terminate the offer at any time, for any reason and without notice. Please allow up to 4 weeks post promotion for miles to be loaded to your collector account.

Thanks, not a bad deal. However I noticed you paid $106.72 for $100 + $7 worth of air miles, not sure you really came out ahead with the prepaid MC.

Yes, I was aware there were fees associated with the prepaid MC... but I needed it for what it was. Which is why I suggested someone else try with other gift cards (that don't carry extra fees).

Yes you can come out ahead in some situations. If you have a credit card that gives you 4% reward for gas station purchases and 1% everywhere else, you can buy the prepaid MC, earning 4% on your reward CC and use the prepaid MC for non gas spending where you normally would earn 1% reward only. So it is like turning your CC into a 4% reward CC for non gas spending.

There are uses for prepaid M/C. I've been buying them at other places couple times a year so this is actually good deal. Those miles will help reach enough miles to redeem for something I was short ~100 miles for something good.
