[PROMOTION] Earn 5X Bonus Air Miles at Shell

Valid from March 2 to May 3, 2015, you can earn 5 times bonus Air Miles reward miles on all grade of fuel offered at participating Shell locations. The only terms I see here is that you will need to purchase a minimum of 25 litres of fuel per transaction in order to earn the extra reward miles. Here’s the link.

Let’s do the calculations:

If you have the BMO Air Miles MasterCard, you will earn 1.25 miles per every $20 spent at Shell gas locations. 25 litres (priced at $1.00 with the current Canadian gas prices) would cost $25 total. Your total earnings in this transaction would be approximately 1.5 Air Miles reward miles. Multiply this number by 5 and you got about 8 Air Miles reward miles in this one transaction.

Is this a good promotion that Shell has going on? Unless you’re filling 100 litres of gas at a time, this isn’t the greatest strategy for fast tracking your Air Miles reward miles account. In a previous post, I talked about another Shell promotion where you can purchase any two car washes and earn 20 Air Miles reward miles.
