Can I drop $3K and call it done?

I want to get this card, https://www.bmo.com/main/personal/credi ... astercard/
Drop the min. spend and get a ton of miles.

This card would net 3300 miles on $3000 of spend. That's a 12.2% return BEFORE this Shell promo.
The largest shell denomination I saw was $100. So you would have to get 30 gift cards...lol

Let's gooooooooooo
I think it has to be in the same transaction, so you can't have a receipt for $45 and a receipt for $5. That doesn't count.

What's funny is that when I was seeing people on the east coast commenting on how their cars can't even fill up for $50 because of their lower gas prices, I actually thought, "Good thing I live on the West Coast"... Then I thought about that and realized i'm an idiot...

Hmm. how exactly does that work? Do you just leave your credit card with the CSR at shell, they open up the terminal you're at, you fill up, then go inside and pay the appropriate amount and add the snacks?

Don't you always have to prepay or preauthorize?

Buy gas and lottery for 50$ and up , use your Samsung Pay offer , get the 20 AM for the Shell Pay app and get the 10x AMs for Premium gas as well. Also get 3 AM bonus until end of year for filling with Premium gas. So you get 10% of the amount spent, 25 AM per week + 10+3+more AMs for the promos they currently have. Best deal out there.
Oh, and get 1.75-2% from you card (Rogers, other MCs)

Nope. I routinely do this (not the buying snacks part). I usually fill at CT and I always fill up first then go in to pay after I fill up. Pay at the pump is only required at specific pumps.

OK, just another point of validation. I asked Mastercard Canada via DM on Twitter if this is legit and they confirmed - Yes it is.

Possibly. I'm pretty sure they have a fair idea in-house about what SKU's are selling and their margins. GC's make a small profit for the seller even if they sell $ for $. It depends where this 10% is coming from, but I can only assume it is direct from Shells coffers.

So I just called my local Shell (the one that was closed last night).

Same as with the store that's open 24 / 7 -- They don't sell any bus passes ... and no grocery store Gift Cards ...

She told me, for example, they have Amazon GC, Starbucks etc etc ... But no grocery store ones ... and I am sure no Shoppers Drug Mart either, for example.

I am in Winnipeg, MB.

Put as much as you can in your car's tank ... and put the rest in the plastic red gas container (those come in different sizes too) :)

But can wait until the end of the promo ... and use those Shell GCs then ......

Meanwhile one can use their MasterCard if putting gas at Shell ... and get 10% from gas purchases as well.

Can you shoot over a link or two for the AM promotions? I've only been able to find the 3 AM bonus and the 20 AM bonus for Shell app. Where do you see the 10x AMs for premium gas?

Semantics but what you're describing isn't stacking the existing 10% discount. I suppose there could be a future promotion where the method of payment allowed is Shell GC's that you could stack with it, however.

Depends on location and time of day whether you're required to pre-authorize or not.

.
Amex plat has 3x points for MCD, Starbucks and KFC purchases, equivalent to 7-10% depending on how you use the Aeroplan/Avios. Not a big advantage to buy them in this promotion unless your MC card gives you extra.
Canadian Tire has up to 15% discount elsewhere.
Sobeys has Airmiles promotions which discount more.

SDM card and Shell cards could be considered. Anything else?
