    Lyft "bonus" vs. PT is a total scam!

    Here's a good example of new reality. Lyft charged passenger almost x2 surge price and paid me 1.67 as a "bonus". Scammers!

    1% Cashback

    Wondering if people would be interested to earn 1% cashback on all their fuel purchases? There is a company that I know that is about to launch something like this - wanted to know how big the take up might be. They will even give you £5 for free to test out the product... Cheers L

    California Fair Car Rental

    Hi guys. Just wanted to post my experiences with the Fair/Uber program in San Diego, CA. I've been driving my car into the ground (2015 Honda Civic) so I started looking into alternatives. The premise of this program certainly fit the bill but getting to the point I'm at now hasn't been a bed...

    Streak Bonus/ Quest

    Soooo who's saying F*** that new streak BS??? For sure i am. I'm still driving. Just not chasing 5 extra dollars for taking the next 3 rides that come to me under the promise that they'll give me A WHOLE FIVE BUCKS for doing 3 rides. I'm not doing multi-pool (a pool ride where i stop and pick up...

    Do Lyft Personal Power Zones work with destination filter?

    I turned on a destination filter while in a personal power zone, and immediately the demand heat maps and power zone disappeared. I didn't end up getting a ride so I don't know whether I would've gotten the bonus or not. I called support who claimed that I'd still get personal power zone bonus...

    Uber let me have it my way.....

    I don't usually chase CTBs unless there's a decent amount. Yesterday afternoon, as I was finishing up driving and heading home the CTB was $17 and I decided to give it a go. Picked up my first rider from Palo Alto Sheraton and took them to downtown. After hanging out there for about 15 minutes...

    Did anyone get Valentines day bonus on Lyft?

    So I have only gotten one personal bonus(during art basel) offered to me since lyft stopped offering power driver bonus. (and 2 streak offers) and no other bonuses. Yesterday I was on the phone with a nice/actually seemed knowledgeable customer service representative and he said O there have...

    No more prime time on Gryft???

    So DC has the shaded areas that used to mean prime time but there’s apparently no more bonus in there. I know there’s the bonus zones where it builds but what’s the deal with the shaded areas now?

    Los Angeles Bonus - Orange County and others don't count, cancel rides!

    You want to be a good driver. You don't cancel rides. You are nice to customers and your ratings are great. Why does Uber make it so hard on you? You drive 10 to 12 hours a day to get the bonus at the end of the weekend or the week. Oops! You got a ride out of Los Angeles county! Your rides do...

    Behold! The $1 Bonus

    Amusing bit of proactive administration on LYFT's part. TL;DR **ADVANCED WARNING** There is no plot twist or drama in the story below. After getting on top of a head-cold I was fighting, I turned the app on at about 10pm last night. I got about 1 minute away after being about 1 hour online...

    Consecutive Trip B.S.

    How many times one the 3rd Trip in the consecutive Trip bonus has this happened? “Something Went Wrong” unknown error. (See pic) Happened to me 4 times now. Really frustrating how Uber likes to steal the little incentives through these BS errors! Wow....

    New Promos suck!!

    I drive full time for both companies, however I started driving for Lyft before Uber. One thing I’ve noticed after a few weeks is that the promos change from week to week, in fact they seem to get worse ( 3 rides streak promo). Can someone tell me how the promos work? Do they base them off...

    San Francisco - What are your weekly goals/"pdb" bonuses?

    Hi all, I'm returning to the grind of driving: What are your current weekly "goals/bonuses" right now? I'm interested in driving only for Lyft this time around. Thanks

    Lyft's New Yellow Heat Maps

    What do you think of the new yellow heat maps? They look alot like the old prime time ones, but without the multiplier bonus. Are they charging a large fare for rides originating in these areas? I haven't seen any personal power zones yet. Also has anyone heard of the end of the power driver...

    Uber withholding/hiding their bonuses??

    So question/clarification, as I drive for both L & U (PT, if I can help it). I used to just drive Sundays, and noticed Ubs would usually-- on the older versions of their apps-- advertise as you were driving, 22/60, 22/90, etc... basically, saying how many rides you'd have to complete to earn a...

    A year ago, huge surges. Today...

    A year ago, the Broncos and the Rockies we're playing at the same time. It was surging. I even snagged a 4.2x surge to a dispensary and the passenger had me wait until he got out 20 minutes later. Hey no problem, I getting $25 an hour to wait! This year, a bonus of $2 or less per ride to get...

    OC Boost & Quest

    Can someone please share some information and/or screen shots of Boost & Quest offers they received for OC? I live in OC, but signed up under LA. I qualify for boost and quest for LA county, but curious to see if it makes sense to switch to OC to get bonus for OC. Thank you so much for your...
