Lyft for Work - Free Rides to Work

FREE LYFT RIDES TO WORK!

Want free rides to work?  Better sign up fast!  Lyft is promoting their “Lyft for Work” program by giving away 10 free “Lyft Line” (shared) rides per employee for one business week.  That’s enough to get you to and from work for 5 days (up to $15 per ride).  It can be worth up to $150 per person and up to $15,000 or more per company!

First 10 companies in San Francisco and Los Angeles to reach 100 sign ups gets the free rides!  Good luck!

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

  • It’s only available in San Francisco and Los Angeles
  • The first 10 companies to get 100 employees to verify their work email
  • Companies with at least 100 employees

 

HOW MUCH IS THIS WORTH?

Each person gets a maximum of 10 rides up to $15 each.  That’s $150 per person maximum.  If a company signs up the minimum 100 people x $150, we’re up to $15,000 per company x 10 companies = $150,000.  That figure could be higher if more than 100 people sign up.  Also, not everyone will use the full $15 per ride .  It seems that Lyft is budgeting a minimum of $150,000 for this promotion (and they have hedged their bet as they can limit eligibility of a really large company).

 

WHAT IS “LYFT FOR WORK”?

Lyft’s new program lets companies pay work their employees work-related transportation.  Who doesn’t love that idea?

 

HOW TO SIGN UP

  1. New Users: click here to sign up with for $35 Lyft Credit ($5 off each of your first 7 rides) or click here if you prefer $10 credit that can be used for your first ride

GETT $10 Rides 2015 Central Manhattan

Want a GETT $10 Flat Rate Ride?  Now it’s only in Central Manhattan.

GETT just changed their $10 Flat Rate pricing.  No longer can you go anywhere in Manhattan for $10.  The flat rate is now limited to Central Manhattan (from Houston to 59th St.).

Many people were hoping the $10 flat rate anywhere in Manhattan would stick around longer but that was probably getting expensive for GETT to subsidize…and that was if you were lucky enough to find a GETT ride on your app.

The Good:

  • $10 flat rate rides are still available
  • No surge pricing – GETT doesn’t charge extra during busy times like UBER and LYFT
  • Surprise! There are actually MANY cars available now!  (yes, I changed the car icons to space ships)
Gett cars available 1-22-15

It should be easy to get a GETT now

The Bad:

  • Much smaller service area for the $10 flat rate
  • Downtown gets cut out of the flat rate area completely
  • Your savings vs a taxi (if you can find one when you need it) are likely to be smaller

 

$20 Free Ride Credit

  • Click Here to get your Free Ride (new customers, up to $20 which can be 2 flat rate rides)
  • Or use code GTAGNIE in the coupon code screen (Click the menu icon -> Coupon Code -> enter the code)
  • We will both get $20 ride credit (that’s another 2 free rides) – thanks in advance if you use this code!!
  • For more coupon promo codes, check out borntocoupon.com

Ron Srebro, CEO of GETT USA, sent out this announcement today:

Hey there,We know how much you loved our $10 rides last year, that’s why we’ve decided to keep them in central Manhattan. Gett around for the amazing rate of $10, anytime, anywhere between Houston and Central Park South.We have some pretty amazing rates throughout the rest of New York, so just open the app and enter your destination for a great competitive price quote.I appreciate that it’s been frustrating to get a car at times and my team is working super hard on getting more drivers on the road, to ensure you can always get one.Don’t suffer surge pricing. Open the app and tap Gett today.

CUBA HERE WE COME!

 

After more than 50 years of travel restrictions to Cuba, there has been a lot of news that the US will allow travel.  But who can go and when?  That’s what I wanted to know.

 

WHICH AIRLINES WILL FLY TO CUBA?

JetBlue, Delta, and United are looking to open routes to Cuba per CNN.

 

WHICH AIRPORTS?

United will fly to Cuba from Newark and Houston, according to NBC New York.

 

WHEN?

Since United announced that they will fly from Newark and Houston, I called them to find out more.  There was no information or flights available on www.united.com.  After waiting and waiting, I spoke with a rep who sounded like she was hearing about the Cuba route for the first time.  She asked me where I heard about it (the link above).  After checking with her supervisor, she came back with no information.  We will have to wait to find out more.

 

WHO CAN GO?

Travelers who fit into the following 12 categories are eligible to apply for a general license to travel to Cuba. as per Whitehouse.gov

1. Family visits

2. Official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations

3. Journalistic activity

4. Professional research and professional meetings

5. Educational activities

6. Religious activities

7. Public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions

8. Support for the Cuban people

9. Humanitarian projects

10. Activities of private foundations, research, or educational institutions

11. Exportation, importation, or transmission of information or information materials

12. Certain export transactions that may be considered for authorization under existing regulations and guidelines

 

IMPORT LIMITS:

Looking to buy some Cuban cigars?  Travelers will be able to bring back $400 worth of goods – max of $100 tobacco and alcohol.

Authorize American citizens to import additional goods from Cuba
Licensed U.S. travelers to Cuba will be authorized to import $400 worth of goods from Cuba, of which no more than $100 can consist of tobacco products and alcohol combined.

 

More to come…

Fly NYC to Scandinavia for $300-500 round trip

norwegian logo

Via Travelzoo, Norwegian is offering some cheap fares to Europe now through March and later for a bit more.  Many of these are direct flights on Boeing 787 Dreamliners planes!  Want to ski in Europe?  Perfect.  Rather go when its warmer – that works too.

LINK TO SEE THE FARES

Example fares from NYC (round trip, including taxes and fees)

These round trip fares are good deals:

  • Stockholm … $308-$445 (January-March; May)
  • Copenhagen … $331-465 (January-March; May)
  • Oslo … $331-$482 (January-May)

These round trip fares are ok… I would be looking to use miles instead.

  • Rome … $653-$744 (February-April)

Sheraton Hanoi outside

 

Sheraton Hanoi – Clueless in Vietnam

I recently stayed at the Sheraton Hanoi in November 2014 on my trip to the Maldives (and Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore).  Although there were some problems, I would stay there again, but only if I was staying with Starwood Points.  For just 2-3,000 SPG points, its a great value, and I get elite credit towards renewing my SPG Platinum membership.  If I didn’t have SPG points, I would have rather stayed in the Old Quarter.  The cash rate would have been about $100/night while many 3-4 star hotels cost around $40-70 and other 5 star hotels around $100.

TheRewardBoss Rating:  3 out of 5 Stars
