I just received my card and material yesterday. The package states that it will not be accepted for RVs at pilot/Flying J.

Still works at Loves, Sapp Brothers and many others.

A thought?  How will they know it's an RV?  If you just drive up and slide the card how can they know?

At the risk of being found out by Good Sam, no where on the application did it ask if you are driving an RV. And I doubt the teller inside will take note.

So, I’m thinking somewhat what Jerry states. May try one Pilot/J just to see what if anything transpires. At worst, you pay regular price.

Jerry,

I believe Jim Haslam, the owner of the Cleveland Browns is also the owner of Pilot/Flying J.

Jeff ,Jerry  it’s my understanding that TSD. Lost their discount price for reselling to RVers but the loss applies to all their business , trucks included. They had no discount agreement  at all prior to November and just started then. Evidently TSD contract trucks didn’t use P/Fj prior so I doubt it’s that big a loss. Keep in mind TSD while a good size logistics company is comparatively pretty small in the commercial fuel business.

I use my EFS / TSD fuel card at Pilot in Palm Springs on 3/13 and received the cash price at the pump but no discount. FYI

From TSD's webs site, dated 11/6/19:
"As of the end of the week, Pilot is officially retracting their discounts from our program due to their relationship with Good Sams. Good Sams has an exclusive contract with Pilot which prevents them from giving any discounts to the RV community through any other means. Every other discount is still in place."

An update:

Used the card at 3 Loves on my travels home from the Rio Grande Valley. The discounts were substantial, although not the same rate, I.e. discount per gallon varied. Nevertheless on 329.2 gals purchased @ these 3 Loves, I saved $216.27. This is after all charges and fees incurred and processed by the bank.

Very substantial....and on the upside, especially these days, I didn’t have to go inside as info is on app and emailed.

If I would have planned a bit better, ie. fueled in Sioux City, I could have used another Loves at Fargo, ND and I would have saved more - I had to use an outlet that didn’t accept the card. Winds and the great mileage the C13 gets would have meant rolling into Fargo on 10-15% of a tank which is too low for my comfort zone.
