Question: my receipt also says "5 Miles - MEGA MILES - IN STORE OFFER" but it does not say any promo # anywhere. Am I still kosher for MM with this purchase???
Are you sure you don't see Promo 939 as a line up at the top, with your purchase items?

Tip: For Shell stations where the attendant likes to scan their "own" coupon, ensure that "Promo 939" shows up on the cash register's display (at the moment the coupon is scanned) before the transaction is totalled.

How much do you need to spend to generate one Air Mike at Shell? Last time I bought a $10 gift card on Air Miles card A. Promo code and card number were on receipt but Air Miles rep said the transaction never registered.

Air Miles card B I bought a $25 LCBO GC and had no issues

Purchases were made within minutes of each other
For in-store purchases, the standard earn rate is 1AM per $10 (maximum 10AM per transaction), including on non-Shell gift cards.

For gas purchases, the standard earn rate is 1AM per transaction of at least 15L.

(edit - corrected earn rate for fuel purchases - thanks @akaManny )

Happened again to me for this promo. Receipt with $25 purchase shows "Air Miles earned." Receipt with $10 purchase shows card scanned but no miles earned. Promo 939 is on the receipt

For gas purchases, I think it is 1 AM for at least 15 L in the transaction.

Thanks for the correction.

I think I always mess that up because most of the AirMiles coupons require 25L fuel purchase.

Yes, but it seems to create problems when you try to buy for this promo. OLG gift card, you can add any amount that you want and use at any OLG terminal

Did this Offer today with my SO
(They have recently added their own AMs Account for these BIG BONUS Events)

We did two IDENTICAL transactions (each buying $ 50 Non-Shell Gift Cards)
At the same Shell station
One behind the other
In EXACTLY the same way, with the same Cashier
And yet our receipts look very different

Mine...
Shows Promo 939
At the bottom states I earned 10 BAMs
And a breakdown as:
5 AMs for In Store Purchases, and
5 BAMs for MegaMiles Instore Offer

While theirs...
Shows Promo 939
But other than showing that IT WAS an AirMiles recorded transaction with their account #
There is absolutely no mention of MegaMiles
Nor any info / breakdown on the Earned Miles

Weird.
And just one more QUIRK to AirMiles @ Shell

Did you guys opt in differently within the app or something like that?

Nope.

The In Store MMs Offer is strictly a coupon code one.

Like I said, weirdly quirky.

But just goes to show WHY we see posts here from RFDers reporting different things even though they do the same Offers

In our case, it was 2 IDENTICAL Purchases
Done one right behind the other
With the same store & clerk, and cash register
Using the exact same process... the one listed on the coupon HOW TO USE Instructions
* Hand GC to the Cashier for Purchase entry
* Enter AMs MMs PLU Code
* Swipe AMs Card
* Make Payment

And yet the receipts recorded things slightly differently. Odd for sure
