Pilot Flying J today launched its first gas-discount program for motorists, and the money-saving offer is available to customers visiting the company’s 63 locations in Tennessee.

From Jan. 8-March 31, the Knoxville-based company is offering special gasoline savings for customers across its home state of Tennessee. While Pilot Flying J’s MyRewards loyalty program is available across the U.S. and Canada and offers discounts on retail and restaurant purchases, this trial promotion is the first opportunity for customers to earn discounts on gas.

“Pilot Flying J is proud and very fortunate to have so many loyal customers in our home state of Tennessee,” said John Compton, CEO of Pilot Flying J. “This is the first gas discount promotion of its kind that we’ve offered, so we’re excited to try it in Tennessee. We invite everyone to enjoy a cup of our delicious, premium coffee blends or a refreshing fountain drink and then enjoy the rewards at the gas pump. We thank you for being our customer and for supporting Tennessee businesses.”

Each time Tennessee customers purchase a fountain drink or hot beverage from a Pilot Flying J location and swipe their MyRewards card at checkout, they’ll earn 3 cents off per gallon of gas at their next fill up. To redeem the discount, customers just swipe their MyRewards card at the gas pump when prompted, and the discount will be automatically deducted.

Discounts will add up with each drink purchase, and customers can redeem up to $1.00 off each gallon of gas per purchase. All MyRewards Preferred Customer cardholders are eligible, and the discounts are earned at any Pilot Travel Center, Flying J Travel Plaza or Pilot Food Mart in the state of Tennessee. The gas discount can be redeemed at any participating Pilot or Flying J location nationwide.

Customers must have a registered Pilot Flying J “Preferred Customer” MyRewards card to participate. “Preferred Customer” cards are available for motorists purchasing gas, and the discount is available to gas-purchasing customers in Tennessee. Cards may be picked up in Pilot and Flying J locations, and registration can be completed in the store or online at

Eligible drink purchases include any fountain drink including sodas and iced drinks or any hot beverage from Pilot Flying J’s selection of premium coffee, cappuccino and tea. Any bottled or canned drinks from the cooler are ineligible. Up to $1.00 off per gallon of gas will be automatically deducted when customers swipe their card at the pump, depending on the discount they’ve earned. For customers who earn more than $1.00 off per gallon, they can use the remaining discount the next time they refuel. Cardholders have until April 30 to redeem their gas discounts.
