They recently changed the pumps at my closest shell and they make you prepay in $20 increments. They also lock in your chip card similar to what Esso has had for years nowGangStarr wrote: ↑Feb 8th, 2013 11:05 amIn case anyone missed the tips in the previous thread, the true RFD way to use this promo is to buy $20.01 of gas, then top up the $50 minimum with lotto tickets or gift cards. Oddly enough Shell gift cards have some sort of fee attached to them but you can get LCBO gift cards in $25 or $50 denominations as well as gift cards to a number of other retailers. No fees.
I also havn't gotten my airmiles from the last promotion. They should send 200 air miles my way.
TOBACCO PRODUCTS DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE $50!

Yeah, I remember people reported the same thing last time...here's one post:takemetothebridge wrote: ↑Feb 8th, 2013 1:59 pm...When I actually took a look at the card it had an activation fee of around $3.95?!? He confirmed this and I ended up just buying $50 of fuel.
Now this guy could have been trying to stop me from going to another shell since maybe that location only had those type of cards. Either that or it's not worth using the gift cards if they have a charge. Can anyone else confirm that other Shell's have the same gift cards?
You can find the number of your local Shell stations easily at this page, just key in your postal code, click on the pins on the map and find the phone number.

did you do that with V Power?
Feb 8th, 2013 4:06 pm
Nope. 2 x $50 Bronze for 2x25 AMs. Can't see why it wouldn't apply for V-Power to get 2x50AMs, though.

There is no consensus. On the previous page, peroorim said (s)he got the bonus points using gas+InStorePurchase. One other person from the older thread also said they got it to work.

Are you allowed to ask them to input the code like that without actually having the coupon?mikka1989 wrote: ↑Feb 8th, 2013 1:34 pmthis stacks with that promo code P10? i got that p10 card in the mail
when you're filling up, ask them to input code P10 !
i still haven't seen any of these shell bonus points show up on my online AMs account
basically its 95 AMs = $10 cash
couple years ago it used to be 125 AMs = $20 or $25 in GCs at metro?

This looks very nice, but lots of people reportedly did not get bonus miles when bought gift cards.frugal_fanboy wrote: ↑Feb 8th, 2013 4:40 pmIf there is a better consensus regarding the viability of the gas+GC purchase, here is my breakdown from the previous thread on how to best maximize your return:
$25 V-Power on Visa w cash rebate
$25 GC #1 on Visa w cash rebate. GC #1 balance $25
Total sale $50
Total outlay $50
50 AM reward
$25 V-Power on Shell GC #1. GC #1 depleted
$25 GC #2 on Visa w cash rebate. GC #2 balance $25
Total sale $50
Total outlay $25
50 AM reward
Total outlay $75
GC #2 Balance $25
100 AM reward
3rd iteration would be:
Total outlay $100
GC #3 Balance $25
150 AM reward
