    How many times have you been to the fuel desk and/or the other desk to have the person ask you "Do you have a reward card?" well, have they ever asked you if you want one? I have a pilot reward card, but I don't have any from the other places. In the last 3 weeks, they keep asking, but never offer a card. Is there a secret handshake or something, or do the attendents working there not give a crap? Do I need to have one from all the stops?

    ..have you tried asking?
    Love's have them at the registers.
    TA/Petro you have to sign up at the Driver's Kiosk.
    FlyingJ you just give them your Pilot rewards card.

    I use my card

    I have received points at T/A Petro's and they ad up, have over 50.00 in points so far and intend on using it someday. Quick for showers and it runs for 10 days rather than 24 hours.

    I often forget how much better some rewards programs are than others. Last week I gave my Loves card to a Subway employee and said confidently, "I don't want to use my points, thanks." She looked at me like I was retarded and asked why I was giver her the card if I didn't want to use my points? Turns out Loves reward program != Flying J/Pilot reward program.

    T/A / Petro cards are a PIA because you can't use the card directly . You have to print a credit slip and spend more than the full amount. They won't give change.
    In most cases Love's is the only one where you have to go to the fuel desk to get a shower. That is annoying because in every Love's I've been in on the 3rd shift the person working the fuel desk is the one cleaning showers . People are always kept waiting.

    I only use one card & its a Loves card. Its really no preference over others, its just what I started with & I just always go to Loves when I can. I have about $110 worth in points. I've had up to around $140. I usually use it for power converters, gloves, CB parts/connections etc.

    I used my pilot card for three years and never once asked what I got for using it. The run I was on was a team over night run so I never really needed anything. Finally, I was running solo and decided a shower would be nice. I give them the card and they informed me that it had never been activated. Three years they swiped the card and never activated it? I now am a costumer of TA and their card works.

    My Pilot card hasn't been getting points put on it every time I fuel. Seems to be real hit and miss. Biggest scam I have seen lately is from the cashier. They'll ask if you have a card and then scan it and use your points and not tell you and pocket your cash.
