$1000 Lyft Driver Bonus Expands – now in New York City & San Francisco + $750 in other cities.
Lyft recently brought back the big $1000 new driver bonus starting with San Francisco and added New York City to the list! The bonuses have been increasing as Lyft continues its fight for market share. It may be expensive but it's working. From Skift: “we’re gaining share in all top 20 markets, which is where 80 percent to 90 percent of rides happen,” says Lyft President John Zimmer.
HOW TO SIGN UP
- Click here to sign up – use promo code DRIVEDRIVE
- Fill out the form.
- Don't have a car? Lyft will give you one and even pay for it when you do a min # of rides
To see the latest bonuses for each city that I keep updated, see my other post here.
Both New York City and San Francisco require you to complete 100 rides in 30 days (at the time of writing this). San Francisco required 200 rides in 60 days but has since been revised to 100 rides in 30 days – much easier to hit!
You will see the offer (and ride requirement) confirmed at the top of the screen. If you DO NOT see this, chances are you either used the wrong promo code or forgot to enter it. I'm not sure, but I do not think you will be eligible for the bonus if you do not use the promo code and see this when you sign up.
