Shell Air Miles Gas Promo (Misleading Advertising?)

How long does it take for the Air Miles to show up ...... Current promo 25 cents per litre based on 40 Litres. Or to save 25 cents a litre , do I have to redeem 95 Miles to get this? If so ....extreme misleading advertising?

$0.25 / L X 40L = $10

95 airmiles cash = $10. So yes u need to redeemthe cash

Signage is pretty clear. It says save .25 cents/L with AM Cash.

Technically you aren't saving 25 cents a litre......Similar to buy a Petro Canada Discount Card and save 25 cents a litre card for 25 dollars based on a 100 litres!


Retailers shouldn't be allowed to do this sheet!

Yes you are. You redeem the AM's cash towards your gas purchase and you pay 10.00 less. Hence the .25 cents/L savings. It is not rocket science.
