Pilot Truck Stop Military & Veteran Discount
In late June, the truck stop chain Pilot Company announced that they will offer a year-round military discount program.
About Pilot’s Military and Veteran Discount Program
Pilot truck stops are now offering a permanent military discount of 10%.
The 10% discount applied to food and beverages purchased at their truck stops.
The Pilot military discount is available to:
- Active-duty service members
- Retired service members
- National Guard
- Military spouses
- Immediate family members
The discount is available for those in the military community who use Pilot’s myRewards Plus™ app and have verified their military service through ID.me. The verification process through ID.me takes a matter of minutes. Once verified, a “green military badge” will be placed on the user’s profile within the Pilot app.
The discount will then be applied automatically to all qualifying purchases during checkout. You can either present your myRewards ® card, the barcode in the myRewards Plus™ app, or give the phone number associated with your account at the time of purchase.
Steps to Get Started
Follow these steps to get verified and start saving:
- Download or open the myRewards Plus™ app
- Select profile along the bottom of the screen in the app
- Click on “Veteran or Active Military?”
- For existing ID.me accounts, log in.
- For new ID.me accounts, select “Create an ID.me account”
- Follow steps through ID.me to verify military status
Pilot’s new military discount program applies to food and beverage purchases, including coffee, fountain drinks, non-alcoholic drinks, hot and cold food items, candy, and snacks.
Taking Care of Veterans
Jim Haslam, the founder of Pilot truck stops and a Korean War veteran said, “We are forever grateful to [the military community] for their service and this is one way we are able to give back to those who have given so much.”
So, just as summer travel is heating up, make sure to download the Pilot app. Once you do, verify your service on ID.me and enjoy the 10% discount as you move around the country.
Finally, the discount offer is valid at participating locations that are owned and operated by Pilot, Flying J, and One9 Fuel Network. The discount may or may not be available at franchise locations.
