Not sure if this is the right forum but I will ask. How do you use a Flying J card? I go to fill up, swipe my Discover Card, swipe my Flying J card. I don't see the gas price change on the pump. I know I am supposed to get a penny back a gallon off the already good price. Do you get a check in the mail? Are you supposed to walk around looking for dropped pennies on the ground I know this has to be easier than I am making it. Please educate me.

Pretty sure you swipe the FJ card first, then your credit card. Your discounted price will be reflected in the printed receipt.

I think it depends on the Flying J. The last time I used Flying J I had to go in and show them my card and they gave me back the discount in cash.

bjbkkb,
Swipe your J card first. Then follow the instructions on the screen. Your receipt will show the cash price (even when you use a CC). A few lines down it will show the penny per gallon discount. The receipts provided at the RV and truck islands are different. The information is the same. If you choose to pay at the pump, at the RV island there will be no need to go inside. If you use the truck island you will need to go inside to get your receipt. The receipt should be hanging from a metal carousel near the door. Find your receipt, sign, leave a copy for the J and take two copies with you.

The one I use, I swipe my CC first, then it asks for the discount card. The pump and receipt still show tthe regular price, then at the bottom of the receipt it shows the total discount.

One may be able to swipe what ever card one wants first. The most important consideration could be to follow the instructions on the screen.

The truck islands may be different than the RV islands. My experience is almost all with the truck islands.

According to their website you insert the R.V. Value card first then insert your credit card. That is how I've always done it. In know in NJ there are laws which prohibit discounts on fuel. the website also menitons WI too.

I do the FJ card first, then the VISA (oops, MasterCard now ). I also use the truck islands. I'm done with trying to squeeze through their RV islands. They really do need to upgrade them. Besides two fast flowing truck nozzles don't take long to fill up.

Do you pay more at the truck pumps versus the RV islands? It seems that I had that situation out west, but don't remember if it was Flying J or not. Of course it could have been in Oregon where all the truck stops advertise PUC (public use cost, I think) which is about .12 - .15 less than those of us who don't have those cards (apparently only truckers get them.)

It makes a lot of sense to use the wider spots AND the dual pumps!

While we're talking about Flying J's let me offer a reminder for us RV'ers that use the truck islands...

Normal protocol when using the truck island is that you PULL FORWARD after fueling if it is necessary for you to enter the store for any reason...
Pulling forward enough that your rear end clears the pump allows another user to pull in and get set-up to fuel when the pump resets...

If you're sitting in the lane and then come back to the rig and THEN move it, you're going to upset a lot of folks...

Just a reminder....

I've used Flying J's almost exclusively ever since I owned a motor home pulling anything, especially when I was pulling the Stacker Trailer and by doing it "the way they do it" I've never encountered an unfriendly situation.

Excellent advice. Now, if we could only get people to do the same at the RV pumps...
