KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—In honor of National Road Trip Day, which is May 27 (the Friday of Memorial Day weekend), Pilot Flying J announced a $50,000 fuel giveaway and deals, according to a news release.
Pilot Flying J’s $50,000 fuel giveaway offers daily chances for travelers to win $500 Pilot gas cards. Customers can enter by sharing road trip favorites, memories and photos via Pilot Flying J’s Facebook page from May 25-29.
Pilot Flying J also is offering customers special offers and three cents off gas and auto diesel by using Pilot Flying J’s myRewards Plus app. Deals in the app include daily offers on popular drinks, snacks and merchandise, as well as summer sizzler BOGOs every week.
"When it comes to making summer memories, half the fun is how you get there," said Jason Nordin, chief operator for Pilot Flying J. "Many Americans are ready to enjoy a summer getaway, and we are anticipating road trips to be one of the primary ways families choose to travel this year. Pilot Flying J is excited to welcome drivers, whether they are staying closer to home or trekking cross country, as the ultimate place to stock up on road trip essentials."
More travelers are expected to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend compared with 2021, according to AAA. 34.9 million are expected to take a road trip during the holiday weekend despite historically high gas prices. In anticipation of the increase in travel, Pilot Flying J is actively hiring more than 10,000 employees at its travel centers across the country.
In March, the company announced a $1 billion initiative, New Horizons, to remodel and enhance more than 400 locations over the next few years. This project is actively underway with several Pilot and Flying travel centers completing remodels this summer.
