Lyft driver bonuses have been increased yet again. New drivers get $2,000 in Orange County (OC) and $1,500 in Seattle. The massive $5,000 in Los Angeles bonus was recently brought back after first showing up earlier this year. Lyft previously tested out these larger driver bonuses with larger ride requirements… a strategy which seems to be gaining traction. That's not a typo, that's a five thousand dollar bonus.
LINKS TO SIGN UP
- Los Angeles – 1,000 rides in 90 days
- Orange County – 500 rides in 60 days
- Seattle – 500 rides in 60 days
A 1000 rides in 90 days in Los Angeles! That's a lot of rides but it is do-able! It is about 11 rides per day. This would be really difficult to do part time – Lyft knows that and has already tested it out. My guess is not many people are finishing the requirements.
IS THIS REAL?
Yes. The $5,000 offer appeared briefly earlier this year then quickly disappeared. It was recently brought back and now these 2 additional offers have been introduced.
See my other post for the updated list of bonuses in other cities.
What do you prefer: a smaller bonus that is easier to obtain, or a big bonus like this that requires more effort? If you sign up for this, let me know how it goes. This is the biggest bonuses they've ever offered together with big numbers of required rides.
