Pilot to reward truckers during extended Driver Appreciation Week

Aug. 30, 2022
Through September and October, the truck stop chain is celebrating an extended Driver Appreciation Week. The promotion will offer rewards to professional drivers who use Pilot Flying J and its app.

In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week in September, Pilot Co. is extending its annual celebration of professional truck drivers. To further recognize and thank drivers, Pilot’s Driver Appreciation will begin Sept. 1 and last through Oct. 31 with two months of exclusive offers, including events for professional drivers and more points in Pilot’s truck stop app, according to a company press release.

“Professional drivers go further every day to deliver more than 70% of the goods this country depends on, and we want to show how much we appreciate all they do,” said Shameek Konar, Pilot's CEO. “Thank you to our very own Pilot drivers and all the professional drivers out there for trucking through even the toughest times. We are honored to serve you, and we’re going even further with this driver appreciation to celebrate your immense contributions.”

Pilot is offering drivers extra savings, rewards, and points, including:

  • Up to three free drink choices in the myRewards Plus app each week (Sept. 1-Oct. 31).
  • Earning up to 500 bonus points in September with new activated in-app challenges.
  • Discounts on various deli food items all through September using the myRewards Plus app, including a 50% discount during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (Sept. 11-17).
  • In October, drivers can earn more points (up to 5 points per gallon) when fueling after activating PushForPoints in the app.
  • Free Safe and Road Ready Checks in September by Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J. With every check completed, drivers will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win one of three sets of Bridgestone premium steer tires.

During Driver Appreciation Week, Pilot is teaming up with Monster Energy for on-site celebrations at recently remodeled and new travel centers as part of its New Horizons initiative. Drivers and guests are invited to join the festivities, including events like a BMX show, free items from the Monster Energy girls, special guests, and gas card giveaways.

Upcoming Driver Appreciation Week events include:

  • Sept. 2, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Pilot Travel Center on 3006 North Williston Road in Florence, South Carolina.
  • Sept. 16, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Pilot Travel Center on 5231 Pearblossom Hwy in Palmdale, California.
  • Sept. 23, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Pilot Travel Center on 1701 Ashley Road in Boonville, Missouri.

Professional drivers can redeem these promotions at any of the more than 750 participating U.S. Pilot and Flying J travel centers or owned and operated One9 Fuel Network locations. Canadian professional drivers will automatically receive one bonus point throughout September when fueling with their myRewards card at participating Shell Flying J travel centers.
