Frequently Asked Questions

What Can I Buy With Pilot Rewards Points?

There are a number of different services and products you can get for Pilot myRewards points rather than with money. These include food, drinks, supplies, showers, and special parking spaces.

How Does Flying J Rewards Work With Pilot?

Pilot and Flying J are two hospitality chains owned by the same parent company. The Pilot myRewards program is universal to both locales, so you can earn and spend points at either a Pilot or Flying J location hassle-free! According to the Pilot Rewards website, the program also extends to One9 locations.

Do Pilot Rewards Points Eventually Expire?

If you haven’t redeemed any rewards for a while, you don’t have to worry about points disappearing from your account. According to the Pilot myRewards FAQ page, your points will never expire or lapse, and they’ll remain in your account until you spend them. There are also no limits in terms of how many points you can have at a time, so you’re free to pile them up over time if you’d like.

What’s Better: The Pilot Rewards Card or Rewards App?

There can be some confusion in terms of what both the myRewards card and myRewards app have in terms of benefits, as Pilot markets them both concurrently. There are two versions of the myRewards card. The auto/RV driver card only allows you to get a free drink after every nine drink purchases. The pro driver card offers this in addition to earning free showers and shower credits. The myRewards app offers all the rewards on the pro driver card in addition to earning gas points, exclusive deals on food, free birthday meals, a 10% veteran’s discount among other perks. Needless to say, the app is more enticing, especially for pro drivers that travel constantly across the United States. Refer to the myRewards chart for more details on perks and benefits.

How Many Pilot Points Is A Dollar?

According to the myRewards site, each point is worth 1 cent in value. When you earn 100 points, that equates to 1 US dollar. This is very straightforward in terms of trying to calculate the value of the points you collect over time. With each gallon of gas you purchase, you earn four points, equivalent to four cents.

Can I Use Pilot Points For Gas?

Unfortunately, Pilot myRewards points can’t be redeemed on gas. However, when you use the “Mobile Fueling” feature when you use the myRewards app as you pay for gas, you can enjoy a sizable discount per gallon. During certain times of year, Pilot will switch between a 5 and 10-cent per-gallon discount. The change in savings is verified by the myRewards Terms & Conditions page.
