EA membership and Blue Oval Charging Network

3283 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  LightningLAB
Are we not able to input Electrify America member info to get the member discount when using EA stations if signed up for the Blue Oval Charging Network?

I’ve avoided signing up so far because I can’t find an answer. I don’t really care about plug and forget and would rather get the cheaper price but I also want to use up my 250kW

Side note: did anyone else notice free charging today? I stopped in Indiana and Ohio while traveling and it was complimentary at both stations.

Thanks GDN. I understand how blue oval charge is meant to work but every EA station I've been to says to plug in first then initiate the charging. So I'm wondering if anyone has had success activating the charger before plugging in. It seems that plug in and then initiate via app or nfc membership card is negated if plugging in will trigger blue oval charge network payment processing. I want to be able to use blue oval sometimes but take advantage of EA member discounts in the long run.
Ignore the instruction signs if you want to use EA Pass+ membership discounts. Use the app to initiate the charging session, then plug in. If you want to be really safe, turn off plug & charge in the truck or on the app.

Ford has initiated their own discounted system. Blue Oval Charge Network membership will be $50/year and provide the same discounted rates at EA stations. The big advantage is you get that discount when you use Plug & Charge. I'm in a test program with my Mach E now and it works fine. Ford is supposed to roll it out soon.
