It is a targeted offer sent to your email. They come out about every two months. When I need $40 worth of gas, I will do 4 transactions to get BAMs on each $10 cash miles redemption. I end up using 380 cash miles and get back 80 air miles. It’s a pretty good offer!
If you redeem $40, do you get 80 miles or 20 miles?

I complete 4 transactions of $10 at the pump. It takes a few extra minutes. But worth it for me.

Yes I know. But when I tried to fulfil the 25L offer, I can't split. So I only did a $10 redemption last night

I have the same BAM offer, and decided to test it. I redeemed $20 instead of $10 and (as expected) got only 20 BAM. Since this offer expires April 10, I will keep redeeming $10 at a time as that is the best return. There is no rush for anyone to use the 25 L offer if there are better offers at Shell or other stations; if you need it, you have until April 25.

Anyone have luck with their bonus miles being posted yet?
Did you opt-in? I did not opt-in and my 5 BAM were posted a couple of days later:
MEGA MILES - FUEL OFFER +5

I opted in on a Wednesday and filled up on a Friday, paid at the pump.
Got my regular points posted but no bonus.

You could be waiting for a while. During STB, it took almost 4 weeks before they posted my opt-in BAM (I did it on Nov 22, they posted on Dec 19). If I were you, I would use the coupon and do it one more time to be sure

Thanks, this is what I was thinking since I'll need to fill up again before end of the week. Just a pain since Shell is always more than my usual gas station.

It is more than a week for me for the opt-in and it has not shown up in my transaction history. But the standard 1 Airmile and the 10 Airmiles for the text and get up to 100 Airmiles is there.

Also, nothing on the receipt mentions the Megamiles. So how I dispute it if there is no record of it? I will use the coupon next time.
Have a nice day!

The coupon says physical scanning of the coupon is must to get the points, otherwise you will get only 1 regular mile.

Done this promo four or five times already, bonus miles posted within 3-4 days every time. Did both pay at the pump with opt-in and pay in store. No difference for me. Plus it stacked with other promotions.

I did opt-in. Only 1 standard mile posted. No bonus 5 AM yet. It's been almost 3 weeks.

That is true if you did not opt-in. Apparently if you did opt-in, the 5 BAM do not show on your receipt and are not posted until weeks later, but eventually are posted. For that reason, I always use the coupon and never opt-in
