No, Shell GCs are not eligible for this bonus.

What does it say on your receipt? Anything at all about AM earned?

You didn't say what you bought for the $50 you redeemed your AM cash. You should get 35 AM for redeeming your cash miles to buy something for $50, except gas. I redeem 95 AM to buy $10 lotto tickets and got 7 AM.

I redeemed 475 for a $50 Sobeys gift card, and just saw the posted 35 bonus miles. (Miles Didn't show on my receipt, unlike when I paid with cash)

Does anyone know if Shell convenience store sells prepaid top up vouchers for phones? These would still count for the 7x AM promo? I don't see phone vouchers excluded but I don't know if the stores carry them.

They sell Public Mobile $40 and $60 vouchers, just ask at the cash if you don't see them at the gift card rack. Good way to get extra miles for a lot of people here.
I also saw Bell and Koodo vouchers

You must be lucky that the cashier didn't know you can't redeem AM to buy gcs any more. Are you sure the 35 AM is from the same store and same day? May be you bought some thing else in the same transaction or different transaction.

Not sure if it is that important for the cashier to know the "rules", i.e., if the system allows to redeem AM to get that GC why should the cashier even care? I am going to try this myself. I've been redeeming my AM at Sobeys lately, but one can get something like 7% cashback on the AM redemption using this approach. Great idea (if it indeed works)! Thank you, colehead! :) Even if it does not work, I am not losing anything by getting that Sobeys GC at a Shell station.

It's worth a shot for sure, that's why I tried, and the cashier (and me for that matter) didn't know you couldn't redeem AM for GC anymore.

I'm glad I got the 35AM while redeeming, because the RFD in me would have been disappointed to miss out on the $3.68 cash equivalent

You're looking a short flight between two major airports. That will always be the least valuable trip. You got to go somewhere smaller and more expensive.

Not sure how likely, but it is possible that Air Miles will reject the transaction retroactively when doing Air Miles Cash settlement with the retailer. It's also a breach of their terms so it may end up being an issue for the retailer and by extension the cashier. Of course, ultimately it is on the Manager to train and manage their staff. None of this is your problem, but it is food for thought.

The most likely scenario though is that Air Miles will only take action against the retailer for selling GC's with Air Miles Cash in the cases of fraud (ie: if someone steals your Air Miles Card and buys GC's with your AM Cash). In that case the retailer will definitely be on the hook for the value of the cards and the cashier will most definitely be in trouble. Police also get involved.

5 separate transactions I presume?

Wish they didn't have that $100 per transaction limit. This would make things so much simpler. :)
