TIPS & TRICKS

* NOTE - Shell is notorious for not having their computers set up in time or their staff trained.
So this is one AMs PARTNER for sure worth waiting a few days on for the bugs to get worked out.
Personally, we usually wait until after the first weekend, if an offer runs longer.

* When the Offer goes thru correctly ones Receipt should show PROMO 940

* If using a paper coupon for this Offer... the processing instructions are printed on the coupon for the Cashier
1. Add Fuel to transaction
2. Scan Coupon OR for Coupons presented on Mobile Devices, hit the “Enter UPC / PLU” on POS, then enter 00 049 999 999 407 (numbers only, no spaces)
3. Scan / Swipe / Enter AirMiles Card

Based on past BIG BONUS EVENTS the order seems important
So hand off the coupon first for scanning / entry ... AirMiles Card ... and lastly payment

* NOTE - ECoupons / Digital Coupons on Devices... based on past BIG BONUS EVENTS ... you may find that some Cashiers cannot process these (or don’t want to ... each Shell is a franchise, and some Owners May only want hard copy coupons). It’s an inconvenience ... but not much you can do about.
BEST ADVICE ... keep some coupons in your vehicle (either from the STB Booklets, or printed off the website)

I used my own printed coupon in-store. Got the BAM on the receipt.

Tried to use Shell coupon for GAS this evening, but the system would not recognize the coupon (the one for purchasing 25L or more of gas). The cashier said that the screen kept saying "item not found" when he scanned the coupon.

Not sure what was going on.

I don't think Shell's instruction on how to use this offer at the pump is correct.

It says:
1. To opt in to this offer, enter your AIR MILES Collector Number in the box below and click “Opt in.”
2. On your next fill-up of 25 L or more, simply pay at the pump and you’re good to go.

simply pay at the pump will get you nothing. You need to insert your airmiles card first. Am I correct?

So if I understand this corrrctly I get 5 air miles for a minimum 25 litres. So for me to get $10 worth of air mikes I would have to go this 19 times. Canadian tire gives me 5 cents per litre.

5 AM and an offer for STB and that is the important part (1/7 of ~$130). Some of us like myself have offers from Shell for 100BAM (worth >$10) if I do it 4 times. Then I paid by easypay app and got 25AM on the first time and 3 AM for the next 3 time. So it's far better than CT I tell you

If you didn’t swipe your AM card at the pump, then how will they know it’s your AM account that’s tied to the transaction and not someone else’s?

Also, last year, I read there were a lot of problems with opting in on-line. It was better if you had paid inside and have the STB coupon scanned by the CSR. Don’t know if it’s better this year. I won’t chance it. Too much headache chasing AMs later.

Completed buy 25L receive 5 BAM. PROMO 940 on receipt. Even though I had opted in to be safe I took the promo coupon in for cashier to scan manually. 3 down 4 to go.

You should have gotten the 4 miles on the receipt sent to you through email, no printout receipt at the pump

Did they scan the coupon? It wasn't working when scanning yesterday.

There's also an alternative method for the cashier to enter Promo:
"Scan coupon OR for coupons presented on mobile devices, hit the “Enter UPC/PLU” on the POS,
then enter 00 049 999 999 407 (numbers only, no spaces)"
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I have a number of local Air Miles Partners in my neighborhood that are fully versed in AM progs and Promos. Have never had a hassle.
