    Don't forget the app, if you haven't already checked it out. You input the card number once, and then you have to put in the pin every time you log in. Hit the magnifying glass, and it shows you all the current prices taking WEX around you. Once you click on the price, it pops up their address and phone number. If you hold your finger on the address, it will even prompt you to put it into Google maps so you can route there, or satellite view it to see if you can fit. Makes it super convenient to find parking as well as fuel, because Megas don't usually stop at the places that take it.

    Also if you haven't yet, go to the desktop app and set up your card prompts and permissions. You can get diesel, gas, tires, showers, etc. But you have to set the permission for it. Once it's all set up, you can even link the card to a Pilot or Love's app to automatically book and pay for a shower, or even use it to pay for the CAT scale.

    That is great info, thanks!

    Which app is it exactly that you input the card number? I’d like to be able to direct all of my drivers to be able to utilize the app. With this program you don’t get any discounts at pilot or loves though right? But you can link it up for showers and such?

    I must have something saved for password in the app as it keeps me logged in

    I just click on the icon and it opens with no password

    For showers and stuff, you go through that particular app and follow the prompts to link the card. When I first tried, it wouldn't let me, because I didn't allow permission for anything other than diesel and gas (generator).

    The one time I fueled at Love's, I got zero discount. I've fueled at Pilot twice, and got a 3.22% and 3.57% discount. Here's and example of what my fueling looks like:

    I need to look at it then. Irritating inputting the pin every time.

    I have also noticed that not each stop has the same savings

    For instance
    I was heading to Florida and the TA I saved the most $ at two weeks ago wasn’t the same the next week
    Not price but savings
    So say Atlanta TA was $0.15 higher than the TA down the road
    Now the next week the Atlanta one might have been $0.10 cheaper than the one down the road

    Nastc Fleetone is the only way to buy fuel for the small guy.

    just make sure your guys don’t use the card out of network. It gets them cranky. Just use another card if your fueling somewhere out of network. They will never know . There’s no minimum gallon you have to buy .......
     
    Speed_Drums and Midwest Trucker Thank this.

    I kinda got that impression when reading their paperwork that they want the vast majority of fuel purchased in house. We’re going to keep the Comdata card in the trucks for a while just in case. Not to mention they only gave us 10k on the credit line and that’s very borderline. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t give a little leeway if they truly do expect every penny to go through them. Not including any items that may need purchased out on the road.

    In any event we’re told in 6 months that more credit can be applied for.

    Call them once you get your cards

    We called and they bumped it that day and then about 2-3 weeks later they bumped it on their own without us calling
