    So I am on a dedicated run that is roughly 490 miles per day. I am switch seating with another driver and we each top up the tanks each shift. So everyday I am putting in between 40 to 50 gallons per day. Needless to say I am never going to be able to earn max points for you need 8 qualifying fills of 75 gallons. Before someone asks we have small tanks equipped on the trucks so it is necessary for the twice a day stops. . Anyway each week I am putting in 200 to 250 gallons which is around a 1000 gallons a month yet can't get any love from Pilot/Flying J in terms of points. Yes I give the free showers away to drivers in need

    This might just be the most first world problem I have ever heard.

    This sounds like an individual that needs to go to a fuel stop that gives out genuine S & H Green Stamps
    Not only would you get the stamps to go into the books, you could go to their exclusive retail stores and get fine merchandise.

    Don't know what trading stamps are? A little history lesson:

    Do you get paid hourly or CPM? If CPM you are doing free labor fueling for them. Plus you are not get rewards points.

    Tell your company your concerns.

    From 2017 to 2019, I worked at a company that only fueled at pilot/j

    Ran hard and with reefer I fueled 2000+ gallons a month. Only ever got 1 point for all those gallons because their newer points scheme program wasn’t in place back then.

    Man, if you have an open fuel card you should get this app and fuel where you personally can get money back.

    I've had the app for 10 days now and have "made" $55 extra money to my pocket from buying diesel.

    Just a thought......

    The app is called Upside and its basically a cash back / gift card from buying fuel or food.
