GET $50 LYFT CREDIT (
New customers can now get
$50 up to $20 free Lyft credit! This $50 credit gives you $5 off 10 rides. Please keep in mind that Lyft often changes their promotion without notice. Some people have been reporting $5 off 10 rides and others $10 off 5 rides with an expiration date of just 2 weeks!
This is the highest credit that I have seen in a while. I'm sure everyone misses the days when Lyft was giving out 50 free rides, not just $50 credit! Perfect timing so you can take advantage of the Justin Bieber promotion! Unfortunately, existing users are not eligible.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
- Click here to sign up and you should see the above screen showing $50 Lyft credit

OFFER END DATE
50 offer is still going is now up to $20, depending on your city. Lyft often changes changes the offers without any warning so please keep that in mind.
Thanks to Ad for sending in these screen shots. He got 5 free rides + 1 free ride but he already used one of his free rides before he sent the screen shot. That's why the screen shot says “4 free rides” instead of “5 free rides”.
Lyft is jumping into the music distribution business. Until 11/19/15, if you pay $5 to buy Bieber's new album and take a Lyft, you'll get $5 credit for your next ride. Who's going to sign up first??

You get a $10 credit for 5 rides, only good until Nov 29. Not as good as the full $30 for the first ride. I feel ripped off.
New users get $10 credit x 5 rides expiring 11/29/15.
PLUS, you get a $20 credit x 1 ride expiring 12/14/15 if you use a referral code (i.e. the one provided on this site).
Gave me 10 x $5 credit and it’s going to expire in 15 days. I feel ripped off too!!
Did you get the $20 credit in addition to the $5 credits or did they stop giving that?
Sadly, I did not receive the 20 dollar bonus. I am sure that they removed that.
Thanks – I updated this after you and some others reported the same at the end of Jan.
This is a god damn ripoff.
what offer did you get and what city are you in?
I used the promo for 10 x $5 credit, however, I also referred a friend to lyft and received a free ride up to $20. I was wondering for my next ride, which promo will be applied first since I want to save my free ride for a longer trip? Is there any way to determine this?
Yes, on the app, press menu (top left) -> payment then you’ll be able to see all your different credits. After you finish a ride, you should be able to select your payment method and choose a credit.
The $50 free ride credit comes in one time $50 credit or they give up $5 off each ride for total of 10 rides?
10 rides x $5 off, but keep in mind Lyft often change the offers. It’s also been 5 rides x $10 off.
I received the 10 free rides up to $5. What happens if I go over the $5? does my card get charged for the extra I went over?
Exactly. The app will subtract $5 from the bill and you can choose a credit card to pay the rest.
What if I have a long distance and need the entire 50 off the ride, will it work or not?
No, it will tell you in the app what your rides are worth. For example, 10 rides $5 each or 5 rides $10 each.
