Pilot Flying J is getting a jump on summer driving season with the debut of its new “PhilMor” travel coffee mug and refill program. Starting today, professional drivers, traveling families and motorists who love the coffee known as “best on the interstate” can pick up a new on-the-road companion in PhilMor, which will fuel smart savings every time they refill the mug.
The PhilMor branded travel mugs come in 20- and 24-ounce sizes and are available for $3.49 with a MyRewards card. However, during the month of April, customers can purchase a PhilMor mug for just $1.99. The first beverage with the purchase of a PhilMor mug is free, and refills are $1.19 with a loyalty card. Customers can receive up to a 60-cent discount on refills.
“Pilot Flying J serves more than 50 million cups of coffee per year and that kind of loyalty deserves to be rewarded,” said Laura Palenkas, vice president marketing and merchandising for Pilot Flying J. “PhilMor was created to provide our customers with a fun way to save money while filling up on our coffee and a variety of other favorite beverages. And who doesn’t want a buddy named PhilMor along for the ride?”
To introduce customers to the money-saving power of PhilMor, Pilot Flying J will offer in-store promotions and website-exclusive promotions for mug owners and MyRewards card members. These offers include free snacks, refills for only 50 cents with purchase of a breakfast sandwich, and free candy bars with the purchase of a refill, along with other offers designed to surprise and delight customers throughout the month.
