Lyft rolls out 10 Free Rides Promo in More Cities:

Miami, Brooklyn, Atlanta, San Diego, Dallas/Fort Worth Added – bringing the total to 11 cities!

After recently rolling out 10 Free Rides in many major cities, Lyft surprisingly continues to expand the ten free ride promotion to more and more cities.  It's really 11 free rides because you will get a separate $20 credit that expires about a month later. This is a limited time promotion for new users.  These generous promotions make UBER's temporary bump to $30 now $20 sign up bonus seem paltry!  This is $200 free Lyft rides in most of the cities and up to $400 $200 in Philly! There are probably more cities coming.  It looks like Lyft may be getting a lot more money to fuel their grow – $250 million according to the NY Times.  Stay tuned…

**This may work in some other cities.  Please keep the emails and screen shots coming.

Note: Ignore the “$20 offer” that pops up after you click the link.  Lyft doesn't display their pioneer offers on the links unfortunately.  You should also get a $20 credit in addition to the free rides but I have heard reports that not everyone is getting it (see screen shot below where the nyc new user got the 10 free rides but not an extra $20 credit).


  1. Use the links above to sign up.
  2. Download the mobile app (do it when you are in the city listed above to make sure it works!)
  3. Sign up then click in the settings –> payment –> scroll to the bottom below your credit card info.  You should see your free rides in the app.  If not, go to the Payment screen and enter the promo / coupon code before requesting your first Lyft!  I will receive referral credit if you use my links.  Many thanks in advance if you do!


Expiration Dates?  This offer will likely only last a couple weeks and may be pulled sooner.  If you signed up on Feb 4, 2015 in New York City, you have until March 5th to use up your rides (see screen shot below).  Usually the offers give you 2 weeks to use the rides, but this time new users in New York City will have over 1 month!  I'll need to wait for some from the other cities to confirm.


You should receive a text from LYFT confirming the details.  Here's the confirmation from a new user in New York City, Brooklyn, and Atlanta (if you have the screen shot for one of the other cities please shoot me a message).  Thanks for the screen shots!

    • You’re welcome! Would you mind sending a screen shot of your free rides (unless you are in NYC or Brooklyn which I have already)?

  1. I got the text randomly without using any of these links or having the app downloaded but I wanted to wait until the beginning of next month to use the code do you think if I don’t use the credit I can use the promo code again in March?

    • @Sheila, which city are you in and what did the text say? If the credits are already in your account they also should have an expiration date. I don’t think you’ll be able to use a promo code again because its for new users only.

    • I heard from others that it is working in Atlanta (with a screen shot in the post). Did you get any error messages? I reached out to Lyft to double check and they said the promotion would be automatically applied to your account, if you qualify.

  2. The 10 rides in Chicago went down to 5 this weekend, and as of today the promo is completely over with.

    • Sarah, Thank you for the update. If you don’t mind, please send a screen shot of your free rides screen (I sent you an email).

  3. Every time I go to input a promo code to use one of these offers.. It refuses to work..
    Im. A new customer snd I haven’t even rode one or even added payment.. First step I went for was the credit..

    Every single time.. Even after I made another new account, it’s saying that ‘this promo code is for new users only’ HELP! WHY is it doing this…. Grrrr.. I’ve tried emailing Lyft too. Of course, I’ve gotten no where either with this…

    • I believe if you make a new account using the same phone, they can track that you had an account before. Best way to check would be a new phone, new #, new credit card, new email. Yes, it can be very difficult to get in touch with Lyft. Did you download the app from the app store and input the promo code or use the link to sign up first then download the app? If you use the link to sign up, the promo code should automatically be on your new account.
