If my math is right you lose like 50% of your points value. So if you collect a lot of HBC points it might not be worth it. However, I just lost my entire balance because of a year of inactivity because I rarely shop at the Bay. So would have been better to get something than nothing.

I converted my HBC points for the first time and it showed up 15 AM so far (I have 6XX HBC points), but I haven't received the 30 BAMs yet. Is this normal?

I just signed up for HBC rewards, then I clicked the enroll to convert to AM through airmilesshop.ca and it gives this error once I entered my info:

"We could not process your request to Start Weekly Automatic Redemption of Hbc Rewards points for AIR MILES® reward miles. Please review the information shown below in red, before proceeding."

Yet there's nothing in red.

Wait couple of days, your HBC account is not fully activated

I set mine HBC conversion up and i my AM account says: “Gold bonus reward miles” and they gave me a +131 BAM, for some reason. No mention of “Mega Miles” though? BMO and shell both state Mega Miles but Safeway, Thriftys and Rona don’t mention it. This is my first time trying this promotion, is this normal?

Has anyone had some delay with this offer? I signed up I believe March 23, with a HBC account that had no points, and I have not seen any airmiles posted.

Same boat as me, signed up around the same time for new HBC account, activated auto conversion a day or two later, nothing yet posted...
