Pilot Flying J Extends 10 Point Offer

The 10 point promotion available for Landstar business capacity owners (BCOs) through Pilot Flying J was so popular that it has decided to extend the offer indefinitely. BCOs simply purchase fuel using their Landstar BCO/Pilot Flying J Professional Driver myRewards card to receive 10 points. The points pilot_flying_j_logo-300x106are an added bonus to the 25 cent discount Landstar BCOs already receive on fuel purchases at Pilot Flying J.

BCOs who are not currently members of Pilot Flying J’s myRewards program can join by requesting a card from a cashier at any Pilot Flying J location. The cashier can register the card on site or you can register by visiting www.pilotflyingj.com, then clicking on the gray box titled “Drivers – Earn myRewards Points.”

pilotTruck drivers instantly redeem points for food, merchandise and other amenities at Pilot Flying J travel centers and restaurants. Among the benefits of the myRewards program is the “Shower Power” program. By fueling over 500 gallons in one month, drivers are rewarded with a free shower each day for the rest of that month and one additional month.

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

J - BCO-appreciation-sign

We appreciate truck drivers 52 weeks a year, but during this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week from September 11-17, 2016, we’re showing some extra love to the professional drivers who help move America.

Landstar Business Capacity Owners (BCOs) – our term for independent owner-operators – play a huge role in transporting goods safely and on time. So, we ask that everyone join us in saying “thank you” to the men and women professional truck drivers who are on the roads each day.G - BCO-appreciation-Hipp

Attend our online celebration all week by following Landstar on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll have fun posts to share, prizes to win and photo tributes. Use the hashtag #ThankYouBCOs to participate in this online high-five with the Landstar family.

Also throughout the week, Landstar BCOs are invited to visit any of Landstar’s Orientation Centers for lunch. The free meal will be served at Noon, Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 16 at our Orientation Centers in: Fort Worth, Texas, Jefferson, Georgia, Indianapolis, Indiana, St. Augustine, Florida, Lewistown, Pennsylvania, Reno, Nevada, Rockford, Illinois and Burlington, Ontario.

rocktruckTo top off National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, BCOs are invited to join us at our service center in Rockford, Illinois for Landstar BCO Appreciation Days on Tuesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 14.
