Pilot Flying J Brings New Payment Option to Commercial Diesel Lanes & Mobile App

Pilot Flying J

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J customers in the United States can now pay at the pump in the commercial diesel lanes using their American Express credit card.

Additionally, the myPilot app virtual wallet now accepts American Express and other major consumer credit cards.

"With the driver top of mind, we want to provide our guests with additional payment options," said Ken Parent, president of Pilot Flying J. "By accepting American Express cards at the commercial diesel pumps and in the myPilot app mobile wallet, card members can now receive myRewards points at the commercial diesel pump.

"Previously, American Express card members had to authorize payment inside the store for commercial diesel fuel purchases. This change is a great advantage to small business owners and independent over-the-road drivers who are already using American Express," Parent added.

Professional drivers can authorize fuel purchases with American Express and other major consumer credit and fleet payment cards in the myPilot mobile app without having to carry or swipe a card at the pump, the company said.

"We strive to back our card members and merchants with strong value and seamless experiences," said Gunther Bright, executive vice president of American Express. "This partnership with Pilot Flying J gives our card members who purchase diesel on the road a more convenient way to pay."

For a limited time, myRewards members will receive an additional point on diesel gallon purchases when using mobile fueling in the app.

Headquartered in Knoxville, Pilot Flying J operates more than 750 retail locations in 44 states.
