Loyalty Pays: An Overview of Truck Stop Rewards Programs in the TCS Fuel Card Discount Network
Loyalty should be rewarded, especially in the world of trucking. Truckers deliver the goods we need to live every day, so let’s reward them for their dependability. Rewards programs for truck drivers at truck stop chains offer various benefits and incentives to drivers who frequent those truck stops. For instance, most major truck stop chains offer points, discounts, and credits on fuel, showers, food, drink, and other amenities for filling up at their locations.
TCS Fuel Card clients not only enjoy discounts on diesel right at the pump at more than 1,500 in-network locations across the country, but they can also participate in truck stop rewards programs while using the TCS Fuel Card.
Rewards Programs Basic Rules and Detailed Perks
Before we delve into the various fuel rewards programs at TCS Fuel Card in-network discount locations, here are basic rules that apply to most truck stops rewards programs:
- To participate in rewards programs, you must be a registered member. You can register for the rewards programs online, by phone, or by downloading the specific rewards program’s mobile app. You’ll need a mobile number and/or an email address to register.
- Rewards programs for truckers typically follow a tiered structure, earning one point for each gallon of fuel you purchase. Tiered programs also offer the opportunity to earn additional points as fuel purchased this month determines points earned next month. The following month you’ll receive the benefit of the tier earned the previous month.
TA and PETRO
Points System: TA and Petro offer UltraONE, a tiered rewards program with two types of rewards: UltraONE points and UltraCredits. With the UltraONE card, members earn points for every gallon of diesel fuel purchased, each dollar spent at TA Truck Service locations, and each dollar spent on Reserve-It! Parking, the TA reserved parking system. Additionally, each fuel purchase over 60 gallons earns one UltraCredit. UltraONE members also receive a free surprise during their birthday month.
Redemption: UltraONE points are redeemable for a variety of TA rewards, including TA Truck Service, free showers, meals at participating restaurants, parking, merchandise and electronics in-store, and Wi-Fi. UltraCredits can used for shower credits, while members in higher tiers can use UltraCredits for meals, or Reserve-It! Parking.
Points System: AMBEST offers AMBUCK$, a tiered rewards program. Members earn points which equal a penny for each gallon of diesel fuel purchased. Earn points at AMBEST with select purchases at participating AMBEST Service Centers. Additionally, AMBUCK$ cardholders automatically enter into drawings with every swipe of their AMBUCK$ card. Drawings held throughout the year award various prizes, including an annual grand prize.
Redemption: Points are eligible for merchandise at any AMBEST location and at participating AMBEST Service Center locations.

Members earn points on fuel and in-store purchases by swiping their Kwik Rewards Fleet card at the pump or at the time of purchase to earn 1 point per gallon of fuel and 1 point per dollar spent in-store on most items. The program is tiered, so the number of points earned during a specific transaction is determined by the total gallons purchased the previous month. Members can also earn rewards by purchasing qualifying products in-store.
Redemption: Points are eligible for most in-store items such as merchandise, food, and beverages. Kwik Rewards Fleet card members also earn a free drink and a free shower credit with a 50-gallon purchase. The drink credit is good for 24 hours and the shower credit is good for 14 days.
