Pilot Co. rolls out fuel discount to loyalty members

Pilot Co. is helping summer vacationers go farther and all travelers save at the pump by introducing a new 10-cent fuel discount for members of its myRewards Plus loyalty program.

Drivers will be able to save on every gallon of gas and access additional deals at participating travel centers.

"Whether you're driving cross country or running errands, we know that every stop counts," said Pilot Co. CEO Shameek Konar. "We are always looking to help our guests maximize their trips and know that saving money goes a long way, which is why we are introducing a new gas discount and more deals on everything from fuel to snacks to make their journeys go further."

The company made the move as car travel has reached record levels during recent summer holidays. Forbes Advisor found that 30 percent of surveyed summer vacationers would prefer to drive instead of fly to cut back on travel costs.

Pilot launched the new fuel discount alongside more in-store savings via myRewards Plus app deals to meet this high demand and help travelers continue their journeys, the company said.

Customers can redeem the 10-cents-per-gallon discount by downloading the the myRewards Plus app, registering or logging in, and scanning or entering their rewards number when fueling at participating Pilot, Flying J and One9 Fuel Network locations.

Members can keep saving outside of the discount period through exclusive daily and weekly in-app offers on food and beverages. They will also have access to sweepstakes with prize packages from top brands.

For a limited time, new myRewards Plus members will also receive special offers for signing up.

Other chains to embrace limited-time fuel discounts include Wawa Inc., which rolled out a 15-cents-per-gallon discount for Wawa Rewards members earlier this summer.
