I'm done with GS and I know a lot of others are too.


Someone on another thread heard that someone heard that someone from CW said that?

TSD could get you .40-.60 !

Sadly, it's $0.40 to 0.60 off of an inflated price. Often Walmart or Costco fuel with cash back card is much cheaper. For me, I just don't find them conveniently most of the time... loves is always easy.

but still cheaper than most places, also most Costco’s don’t have diesel and/or are too hard to get into with a 40’ towing a car.

Stations with zero discount do not show in the app - Even though they accept the EFS card and we are allowed to use the TSD program / EFS card there, it will have no benefit, so why do it?

Agreed. If you go back thru the numerous posts, many where stating that the PFJ where not going away, calling it all fake news. I was documenting the facts that it did in fact go away as it was stated.


I agree with you -- No reason to go to PFJ any more. Loves/ TA/ and many other options.

My concern is that PFJ could encourage their competitors (Loves, etc.) to take closer look into the TSD cards and the entire program could come to s screeching halt for us RVers.

I don't think making a big deal out of this right now and calling or emailing PFJ will do us any favors - just use the other truck stops and ignore PFJ.


I do entirely agree, it would be short sited on our part to bring up the good thing we have going with TSD. The most appropriate action on our part would be if no one through this back in Good Sam or Pilots face. I suspect we lost the access to Pilot because some kept reaching out to Pilot/Flying J and Good Sam.

This thought shared I can’t help but believe Good Sam was receiving a kick back on every gallon we bought. I might even believe they were getting a better rebate than our savings.

Cash price and no going inside to prepay in the truck lanes.

I just filled up at Pilot in Skippers, VA on Monday. Price at the pump was $2.789. I paid $2.072. That's the best discount I have received to date. Fill up before that was at FJ Burnswick, GA. So the last trip I bought 217 gallons and saved $124.



Maybe something is different in your neck of the woods?

Yes indeed. Our discount is gone at PFJ. I'll be spending my money else where.

Whew....took a while to read through to page 9.
And yeah, TSD'S relationship with their vendors is none of our business. If flying j is out, it's out.
So, here's my issue. I haven't signed up yet, not because of concern about bank account access, but because they require your SSN.
I understand their logic, that they might need to go to collections if we don't pay, but it seems weird to supply that SSN for an online application form.
Comments?

You do not put your SSN or bank account on the form - They will call you for that information.
