Do You Still Pay For Fuel The Old Fashion Way? Learn This Easy Card Trick To Save.
Updated: Mar 25
Once a company tries to become everything to everybody, the product or service becomes nothing in the consumer’s mind. Credit cards are no exception.
Credit cards are a way of life as they’re more convenient and secure compared to carrying cash. As they are accepted almost everywhere, it has become habitual to use credit card to purchase items such as groceries, appliances or at restaurant.
Some trucking companies use major cards like Visa or MasterCard for fuel purchases not realizing they are paying more per gallon than they should. Sound too good to be true? Read on.
How would you answer the popular Capital One tagline "What's in your wallet?" The average person carries 4 credit cards including Visa, MasterCard and American Express but not all alike. Each offer different incentives to encourage card usage, for instance some offer airline miles that are easy to accumulate but are made really hard to redeem. If you’ve ever tried to book a flight using airline miles you’ll understand.
Which Credit Card Is Best For Trucking Companies And Fuel Purchases?
With so many credit cards in circulation, Visa, MasterCard or American Express, which one is the best for purchasing fuel? The answer is NONE OF THEM!
Let’s explain. For instance, Visa’s advertising proclaimed “It’s everywhere you want to be” indicating that the card is for general use. Despite their universal recognition Visa, MasterCard or American Express are each a jack of all trades and master of none.
Would you put Formula One racing tires on an 18-wheeler? Of course not! But why not? For one reason, racing tires don’t have any tread and are manufactured to last less than one race. While Pirelli is number one in Formula One their racing tires are totally unsuited for trucks, they are not the specialist.
When it come to tires for trucks you would obviously turn to a company like Michelin, a specialist that manufactures a line of tires specifically designed for long distance trucking.
When it comes to fuel purchases you should turn to, and rely on, THE industry specialist - Multi Service Fuel Card.
We are not suggesting that you shouldn’t use general credit cards for other types of purchases, but we are advocating that you use Multi Service Fuel Card if you want to save money on all fuel purchases. See further below about how we can afford to do that.
As mentioned Visa, MasterCard and American Express are credit cards aimed at general use and therefore can’t offer benefits like Multi Service Fuel Card. As the trucking industry specialist we offer benefits simply unavailable with general cards.
Whether you’re an owner/operator with 1 truck or manage a 1000 vehicle fleet, Multi Service Fuel Card will save you money instantly on every gallon purchased at thousands of major truck stops nationwide.
These savings are available for same fuel at the same truck stops you already patronize.
In addition to financial savings Multi Service Fuel Card offers:
-Acceptance at over 8,000+ truck stops nationwide
-Most generous lines of credit in the industry
-Programs designed to save you time and money
-Fuel management reporting
-Free cash advances
-24/7 live customer service
Unlike major credit cards, Multi Service Fuel Card allows you to control the types of purchases made by drivers. For instance in addition to fuel you can choose to allow shop goods, car washes and fleet necessities such as lubricants to be added or restricted.
Try asking Visa, MasterCard or even American Express for these services! They can’t accommodate you because, as large as they are, they are not the specialists in the trucking industry.
If a driver leaves your company his or her card can immediately be deactivated to prevent unauthorized usage. All other cards will remain active.
How Can Multi Service Fuel Card Offer Discounts?
It’s been drilled into us that “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is” but how many times has this NOT been true? This is one of those times.
So how can we offer fuel discounts? It’s easy to forget but truck stop acceptance of Visa and MasterCard is not a free transaction. On the surface it appears that way to truckers but truck stops must pay a percentage of every transaction as a fee. Of course, this fee is built into the price of fuel or any other product or service purchased. That means truckers pay this fee indirectly whether paying cash or using a charge card.
For each transaction banks pay the truck stop, less the fee, and then collects payment from the trucker. Deep down the truck stops resent accepting regular credit cards but are obligated to accept them because of their universal usage.
Unlike all the major credit cards, Multi Service Fuel Card does not charge the truck stops any transaction fees. That’s good news for truckers because truck stops pass these savings on fees directly back to the trucker through lower prices on every gallon. There’s no waiting, truckers receive substantial savings immediately.
When fueling up next time what will you pull out of your wallet? The answer is logical, if you want instant savings on every gallon pull out the Multi Service Fuel Card.
