Flying J and VISA: Together again!

Flying J and VISA seem to be buddies again. The Escapees Club received a letter from Flying J, stating they are now accepting VISA at all pumps and all stations.

In addition, they have put a new purchase tracking system in place that identifies repeat customers and removes some of the transaction limits when you pump your fuel. In their words:

“Flying J’s state-of-the-art technology identifies its loyal customers by tracking positive purchase histories through the customer's Flying J RV Real Value card and/or method of payment. This advanced technology enables Flying J to override the purchase controls imposed by card readers at the fuel islands and eliminates the $75 limit that customers are subject to industry-wide.”

This is good news for RVers, as it can take multiple transactions to fill a large RV tank when that $75 limit is in effect. Flying J assured us that you need not have one of their loyalty cards for this system to work. Just make a couple of successful fuel purchases at any station with your credit card of choice, and the system will remember you and automatically remove the $75 limit on your fuel purchases. This sounds like a great reason to give Flying J another try!

Of course if you switch credit cards, the smart pumps at Flying J will require one or two transactions with the new card for the positive purchase history of the new card to be recognized.
RV Education 101 has bundled it's instructional DVDs into cost saving Value Packs. Each of the three packs includes four training DDVDs (3 hours of information) that help RVers understand how an RV works, and how to maintain and use their RV. There are DVD sets for motorized or towable units.
