KNOXVILLE, Tenn. and ANKENY, Iowa—Pilot Company is now offering a 10-cent fuel discount for its myRewards Plus members with unlimited savings. The promotion runs through October 31.
“Whether you’re driving cross country or running errands, we know that every stop counts,” said Shameek Konar, CEO of Pilot Company. “We are always looking to help our guests maximize their trips and know that saving money goes a long way, which is why we are introducing a new gas discount and more deals on everything from fuel to snacks to make their journeys go further.”
Guests can redeem the 10-cent gas discount by downloading the myRewards Plus app, registering or logging in and scanning or entering their rewards number when fueling at participating Pilot, Flying J and One9 Fuel Network locations. Members can save all year long with daily and weekly in-app offers on their favorite food and drinks and have access to sweepstakes with prize packages from top brands. For a limited time, new myRewards Plus members will also receive special offers for joining.
In addition to weekly and daily discounts in the app, travel centers carry over 29,000 SNAP and EBT eligible items. Pilot Company is also enhancing the store experience through its New Horizons initiative, its largest store remodel project, plus initiatives like its recently announced collaboration with General Motors to install 2,000 EV fast-chargers at travel centers across the nation.
Cash for Classrooms
Meanwhile, Casey’s has launched its giving campaign to help fund grants for local schools across its 16-state footprint. Throughout August, Casey’s is asking guests to round up their purchases at the register to help fund its annual Cash for Classrooms Grant Program, which provides funds for projects and initiatives that will benefit K-12 public and nonprofit, private schools in the communities Casey’s serves.
“Schools are at the heart of each of our communities, and we are excited to continue supporting students and teachers through our Cash for Classrooms Grant Program,” said Megan Elfers, president, Casey’s Charities. “Casey’s proudly serves the communities we’re in, and Cash for Classrooms is one way we can show our support for our students, teachers and schools who could use a boost now more than ever.”
In 2022, Casey’s grant program awarded $1 million to benefit schools through 89 grants. The funding priorities included a variety of projects focused on physical improvements, material needs, teacher support and community engagement initiatives.
This year, some of Casey’s giving highlights include:
- Bonnie Grimes Elementary in Arkansas received a $50,000 grant for a new inclusive playground.
- Columbus School District in Nebraska received $20,000 for a new training and technology center to host student assemblies, professional development for staff and other activities for its growing population.
- Sigourney Community School District in Iowa received a $10,000 grant to purchase 10 new microscopes to enhance its science curriculum.
Every dollar raised from guests and the round-up campaign will go toward the Cash for Classrooms Grant Program, which opens its application process on October 1 and runs through November 30. Grant requests may range from $3,000 to $50,000. Grants will be awarded in March 2023.
