it took sometimes to connect to Live Chat, and sometimes it kept disconnecting, but agent is helpful and resolved all issues in minutes.

I did get the BAM but the on-line chat person insisted that each Air Miles card number qualifies for one time only. I pushed hard but still no go.
He already knew you had used the promo in the past?

The terms on the coupon doesn't say anything about this.

Hmm, they probably looked at your transaction history and saw the HBC BAM from previous promotions. I guess I was cautious and did 8 with HBC, else I may not get 2000 AM

Second time doing HBC auto convert and did only 7 offers including HBC. Got 2000 BAM.

I did however opt out of auto convert after the STB 2017 BAMs posted last year.

Did 7 offers on husband's account, got 2000 points. 8 offers on mine, only got 1000 as 2 of the offers didn't post. Quick chat and was given the missing 1000 and associated bonus points.

Which Chat function are you using? Under Getting Miles?

Mine does not connect ever. And the chat just ends itself.

I clicked the button under My Account. Had trouble connecting as well, took a couple tries and had to wait maybe 10 minutes for an agent.

“Thanks for contacting Air Miles. A representative will be with you shortly.”

Times out for no reason and after about 3 hours NO on-line chat even initiated. It truly is hard to believe just how bad Air Miles are.

They screw up by not posting my Samsung offer (7th offer) and I waste endless hours.... last year of this nonsense.

Same here about the online chat. The only time it connected (out of more than a dozen attempts) was while I was away cooking dinner, and of course the rep didn't wait for me.

They just posted the STB bonuses, so a LOTS of people are trying to get their missing miles.
They must be overwhelmed ...
Just wait a few days, and that rush will be over and you'll get the chat really easy.
If you try to chat and wait for more than 5 minutes, I suggest that you simply try at another time.

Unless you need this to be resolved right now and need those extra missing 1000, 1700 BAM for something and you cannot wait a few days.

PS:
I often use the chat in english, as the french one are often "unresponsive".
I guess that there is a lot less french reps available.

He looked through my transaction history.

I managed 3 accounts and all of them had HBC as one of the 7 transactions. 2 accounts got 2000 AM and 1 got 1000 AM. It's still a good promotion but just annoying that we can't confirm the qualified transactions duing the promotion.
