    Isn't there something "official" from T/A or do locations have an opt-out policy from any and all promotions?

    Last time I talked to someone at TA about that, I was told that all TA locations participate in all of the same promotions.

    Maybe T/A needs to actually start gathering names and then send out some sort of memo telling these promotions are country wide, but how many people actually call up and say "Your manager John Doe at store 5231 said this ... is it true?"

    Re: TA /Bp Expedite king cards

    I checked on the status of my Expediters card last week with a call to TA...the lady there answered my questions and then gave me another phone number and told me that if i had any TA Employee that didn't know or understand how the new program worked to have them call that number while i was there and the person that answered would walk them through the issues. She said ALL TA's work with the old Road King and the New Ultra Expediters programs...

    The # she gave me is:

    1-866-752-2582

    Hi Greg
    No It was someone that didn't know her job and wasn't going to admit it ! It says right on there web site that 50 gals of either gas or diesel so I explained to her her that i wouldn't spend my money there and that i was more than happy to let all the expedite world know her policy so that they wouldn't waste there money there or her time talking to her about it !I asked her her name and what town it was and she lied about the town but the store number was right 067 exit 29 route 80 PA
    so i filed a complaint With expedite King on this matter and i am guessing many other stores will be this way.

    I hear, TA actually has someone traveling around from location to location in a van.
    Pulls up, emits a cloaking device on his TA ID by hitting a button his cell phone.
    Then he proceeds to try and use as many promos as being offered currently thru TA,
    I think his name Harry McConnel, or something like that.
    Yep, pulls their shorts down an whips their cheeks cherry red right then and thare if they are being CONTRARY or DECEITFUL
    They signed a contract ya knw.

    Re: TA /Bp Expedite king cards

    This is simply a new program that is different from the old program, especially with regard to vans at the gas pumps. It'll take a while before some of the TA locations even see a van try and use the program. Managers at TAs have a lot on their plate, and digging down into the details of a program they might not even see more than 2 or 3 times a month is low on the list. Many probably glanced at the program and saw 'same deal, different lookin' card, points don't expire and there's some restaurant promotions going on', yawn, and then went about their day. The differences in the program won't "register" in their brain until they are faced with one of those differences and have to look it up or get it clarified. Many of us have had jobs where similar things have happened with various changes in how things are done.

    Just the 3 days ago I heard a fuel desk cashier telling a driver that he should sign up for a Road King card. Old habits die hard. I piped up and echoed her suggestion, but added that it's not even called Road King anymore, but is the UltraONE card. She said, "Yeah, it's UltraONE or something like that, but it's the same program."

    Once more van drivers know about and start to use the program, and more TA and Petro locations see the use of it, the more knowledgeable the cashiers and managers will become, and the easier it will be to use.

    I still see a lot of vans sitting at many Flying J's. Old habits die hard, but will be hastened for many come Wednesday when they get a rude awakening when the Flying J Frequent Fueler card becomes a Pilot Driver payback card.

    Re: TA /Bp Expedite king cards

    I've been out 8 days now and not spent 1 red cent in a J or Pilot...and I like pilot coffee..Between getting an extra 1-1.5 mpg because I am not using cheap J diesel and getting a better price...I pay for my showers....It takes 3 fills at TA to get a shower and when one isn't running so hard you won't pile up the credits...I don't get the discount TA offers either...

    John,

    You need to ask them to upgrade your card from ExpediteKing to UltraOne Expediter. You will get the gasoline benefit:

    UltraONE

    1 Shower per cumulative 50 gallons or more of diesel fuel or gasoline in a 5 consecutive day time period
    Credits Good for 10 Days
