It added, "The Flying J Frequent Fueler card will function as a Driver Payback card."

The following Frequent Fueler Program features have been discontinuedthe PDCA Frequent Fueler Moneycard MasterCard is no longer available; these existing cards will no longer function as loyalty cards, only debit cards.

In 2011, one card will be accepted at both Flying J and Pilot locations, offering more rewards for inside purchases, mobile and online smart phone rewards system and the ability to participate in club programs such as the coffee club.

Until then, customers can combine points on either card at any Pilot kiosk, said the company. Customers will not lose any points.
