I've gotten the discount and you get the cash price unless it recently changed. However I'm not a big fan of Pilot/Flying J. I use Shell, Marathon or Hess whenever possible.

For the 1000 or so gallons of fuel I purchase each year the .07 per gallon savings isn't worth my privacy. Plus if you pay in cash you are often provided a decent discount.

I am not full blown foil hat wearing outcast yet, I still leave quite a footprint -- this site included, but I am becoming more conscious of what information I share or allow to be collected.

It's been a little more than I year since I started this and the amount of junk mail and telemarketing calls we receive have significantly reduced.
I have never gotten a bit of mail from them and only rarely do I get a buy our coffee email.. Any credit card you use will have the ability to know where you are and what your buying.. and at $200.00 a fill I don't carry that kind of cash with me.

The real reason I got the J card is because I am Canadian and using a Canadian CC at the pump in the USA is a major PIA
