Yup. I thought I was the only one who still hasn't received anything. Purchased Sept 26th. Posted yesterday. Still no rebate.

Okay, this makes sense now. Thankfully I didn't dig myself into that hole.

My thought was you buy a prepaid MC to get 10%, then use that MC to buy another gift card to "double" the rebate. It's been mentioned that it is not possible because the prepaid are coded and are not reloadable.

I ran into this at 2 locations yesterday. I filled up at Unity and Winston Churchill in Mississauga, then when I went inside and started looking at the GCs, the cashier said the activation system is down. Then I drove up the street to Creditview and picked some LCBO GCs, but when the cashier tried scanning them, it didn't work. He tried it with a few GCs and seemed genuinely confused, not as if he was trying to give me the runaround. The POS made an error-like sound when he scanned them. I may try again at some other locations, otherwise I'll just stick to gas.

Wow, horrible experience for me. First time i went to my local Shell, the POS was not categorized as Shell so i lost 10$ in cashback. I tried again tonight and insisted to use the POS of Shell (they have 2). The girl didnt want to but finally agreed and separated my transaction (40$ in gas and 10$ in beer). So again, i will not be eligible for the credit from mastercard. I wont go back to this place... And she also told me that she can't sold any gift cards because of a problem of activation or something.

No limit on the amount of Money-Back Rewards you can earn on your everyday purchases.

that's one way to look at it

another might be without these types of people we'd still be in caves. no laws were broken and companies get crowd sourced QA

2020: BOC dropped rates 3 times and MCAP waited and waited to drop its prime rate to include all 3 drops.

My local Shell just priced premium gas at 185.9 today. The highest price I’ve ever seen in metro Vancouver in my lifetime. It’s simply cheaper at any other gas station in BC. Something to keep in mind.

Damn...you really need to be rich to live in Van City. Over here, I was seeing 112.9 at Shell after work today. [Edit] Premium here would still be +23...So 135.9

She didn't want to charge the beer on the shell POS terminal. At least, she agreed to charge the gas on the Shell terminal....

Got two $50 amazon gift cards today at Shell, used tangerine MC. No problems with activation, and got 10 airmiles too!
Will wait for a rebate, but it's a good deal even without rebate because of better cashback and airmiles.

Supply and Demand in metro Vancouver. Majority of the vehicles are high end Mercedes, BMW that takes Premium gas. Plus you only have 1 pipeline (aging TMX) to deliver jet fuels to the busiest airports, gasoline, diesel, etc ( can’t fit everything in 1 pipeline )
