Shell (July 13) New way of earning Air Miles

Got this email from Air Miles regarding new way of earning Air Miles. It doesn't say what the new way is, but it will be announced July 13. Its probably for GO+ member but not sure at this point. Im not a GO+ member by the way

New program is now up and running, eff. July 13 to Dec 31

https://shellgoplus.ca/en/home


Effective July 13, 2020, you can get:

1 Base MileϮ for every 10L of Shell V-Power Premium Fuels on a transaction.
1 Base MileϮ for every 20 L of Shell Bronze, Shell Silver, or Shell Diesel on a transaction.
1 Base MileϮ for every $5 spent in store in a single transaction (exclusions apply).*
Ϯ Maximum of 50 Base Miles in a 24-hour period

*In-store purchase excludes: Tobacco products, Lottery tickets (instant & scratch), Shell Gift Cards, Partner/third-party gift cards, Prepaid credit cards, Phone cards, any other goods or services specified from time to time or as excluded by law


I don't see how this new program is beneficial to me at all. I was getting 10 AM for every 25L of 91 gas. Under new program. 30L of 91 gas = 3 base + 3 bonus = 6 AM.

Have not used Airmile in ages, in the current COVID flight prices, did they increase the miles you need to redeem a seat?

Also, they keep closing Shell station around me that I rarely gas up at Shell any more.

Are these benefits enough to make up for the often 10 cent/litre difference in price between Shell and Costco?

Say 1,000 litres are used , say using 91 gas

Costco vs shell - 10 cents diff x 1,000 litres = $100 savings for using Costco

Shell - 1 am per 10 litre base = 100 am . Bonus doubles the base = 200 am. $10 per 95 am. Therefore, 200 am yields $21 payouts

Yea thats correct
Basically if u fill 60L 91 gas, u get 6 base and 6 bonus so total 12 miles. 12 miles is basically worth $1.20
Costco is that if u buy 60L 91 gas, 10 cent difference is $6 savings

The new deal seems quite weak by itself, but it's not bad if they continue doing the 10X or 20X promos, which has traditionally been ongoing for most of the year.

Since they give go+to everyone, they might do offers throughout the year

There’s a major rule change to miles earnings at Shell: you can no longer earn base miles on gift cards or any lottery tickets in-store.

That’s a blacklist. Consider going to Husky or Petro-Canada for those purchases.

That sucks too. My parents go to Petro for fuel anyways cuz Petro points and it's convenient

.... "Lottery tickets (instant & scratch)"

It does not say lottery tickets such as from the terminal, like 649, max, etc.
