Does anyone know how the app works? I bought a pass and signed in, but now I want to give my dad a code. He doesn't have a data plan on his phone so he can't really use it in the car. I tried spoofing the GPS with an android phone and it still wouldn't give me a code. Does this thing use bluetooth/wifi to tell that you are actually in front of the pin pad?

The app works via Bluetooth when you are close to the panel where you input the manual code.

You can generate a 5 digit code for your dad using the app or if he has wifi at home, he can generate his own 5 digit code. You don't need to be near the machine to generate a manual code.

He has 30 minutes to use the code before it expires and then another code has to be generated.

Make sure you swipe the card for the first wash otherwise the app won't show any days/washes remaining.

Thank you so much for your help @dpw198 !! We'll try it out tomorrow where we have an open day in our group. We'll use the "Request Replacement Code" and see if that works.

I've generally just been buying new 30 day car wash cards as each card finishes. I noticed that it indicates you can receive 1 bonus day, if you renew an existing card while it is still valid or within 7 days of expiry. Question, for the 30 day car wash passes, can you reload it while it's still active (not sure if it was only meant for the fixed number of prepaid car washes)? How early before it expires can you reload the 30 day car wash card? I think from one of the previous postings, someone mentioned the 7 days is after the last day of the card, so wasn't sure you could renew it before. If you do renew the card, does the first use still need to be physically done? I'm hoping for last question, that the first use doesn't need to be if it's done by renewal, as it's been quite painful to ensure that the person who is starting the cycle has a physical card.

Anyone managed to get voucher when carwash is closed/out of service? When I bought the card, the guy told me I can ask for a voucher when they're closed due to the weather. Now that we had been getting -20c these few days in Ottawa, all Shell carwashes within 20km of my house are closed but I had been getting different respond each time I ask for voucher. Some cashier was happy to do so, some told me they were instructed not to give out voucher! I'm all confused now, and Shell's customer service never replied my question.
