But, this is similar sounding to promos they've run before and typically the min amount was $25
Should remove this line as it may mislead people into buying gift cards of lesser amount which are not eligible for this promo.

20 Air Miles is kind of okay for Amazon gift cards. Thats about $8.50 in air miles for $100 spend.

Is the promo still active? I didn't know about it. Anyway, 20% off is pretty good given everyone is selling at <10% here.
Unfortunately 20 AMs for buying $50 gift card is only around 4% return. Better than nothing.

I purchased two $50 Amazon GC's today and the 20BAM's did not show up on either receipts. I'm wondering whether it's because I bought the Amazon.ca 'Congrats' and Amazon.ca 'Thank You' labelled GC's rather than the generic Amazon.ca GC?

Yes, only the generic packaging is eligible for the promotion. I had to write to Shell to get my 20 bonus AMs back.
25 Air Miles should show on your receipt if you buy the Amazon gift cards with generic packaging.

Combine with 4% gas rewards CC and it's not so bad for something you were probably going to buy anyway on Amazon :)

6% combined savings to be precise, = 4 + 4 - 2

Why are you subtracting 2%?

EDIT:
On a $50 Amazon GC purchase at Shell for this promo you will earn:

5 Base Miles
20 Bonus Miles
$2 in Credit Card cashback (using a 4% card)

($10 / 95 AM) * 25 AM = $2.63
+ $2 cashback = $4.63
$4.63 / $50 = 9.3%

My CC gives 2% on everything. 6% would be extra savings, it's subjective if it worth the effort

Correct, but you can increase your cashback If you scan your AirMiles card from the Samsung Pay app and buy 3 cards of 50$ for Amazon you would get :

+ 4% cash back from your credit card (Scotia Momentum Infinite or similar)
+ 25 AMs (5+20) for the Shell offer x 3 = 75 AMs
+ 25AM for showing/scanning the Airmiles card from the app (transactions have to be at least 5 mins apart ) - this is the Samsung offer valid til end of 2019 - scan your Airmiles card from the Samsung Pay app 3 times per week (5 mins apart) and get 25 AMs

That amounts to 6$ + 100 AM = 6$+10.52$ = 16.52$ and that is 11.01% off on the 150$ spent, which is not such a bad deal.

P.S. You can buy any 3 cards that qualify, if any 25$ qualify then your % would be even better
