    I Miss Boosted Trips

    I tried Uber Eats 4 times back in April and it went really well. Was getting about $8 per trip, 2 Trips an hour, and after the price of gas I was still making about $11 per hour. So I took some time away to figure out my exit plan for my previous job, and started back on Uber Eats within the...

    Quests/Boosts in NYC

    I've been off of the uber driver app for about 6 months and recently did one trip so i could get my quests/boosts back. However, I noticed that the payouts for the quests and boosts were a lot smaller than what I used to get offered is this the same for everyone? Would appreciate some...

    Promotions

    Has anyone figured out what the different promotion icons mean? if you go to promotions, so some have a flag and some have an arrow in the circle to the right. Uber "support" doesn't have a clue.

    Uber Eats dangles carrot (boost) then takes it away?

    Hi Uber People! I have been lurking awhile, wanted to ask you guys about this. The short backstory is I've done about 700 UE deliveries in 10 months, most in the Portland market before moving to the Tacoma area in December. In Portland, boosts were relatively consistently available, though...

    UberEATS boost no longer applies to all of Canberra

    Since Monday of this week, the UberEATS boost of either 1.2X or 1.3X has applied only to deliveries from the city centre, Braddon or Belconnen. Until then, it applied to the whole of Canberra. So check carefully whether am offered UberEATS delivery has a boost payable or not when working out...

    (DFW-Eats) Comparing Boost/Quest

    So I've been driving for Eats only since about September (2018). Through December, I was getting pretty good Boosts and Quests, but now it's horrible. I've heard that maybe new drivers get better stuff, so I'm curious if January is just a dead time and it will pick back up again, or if I...

    Boost Decrease and the same in all cities in my region

    Okay so I started Uber Eats in mid November. The boosts rates in my region were different in different cities. I stay in Durham, NC which is part of research triangle park (a lot of businesses and travelers). The boosts were between like 1.8- 3.0 consistently. The boosts were also more frequent...

    No More Boost in Baltimore?

    I got an email Saturday saying there is no more boost in Baltimore, instead they are going to do some sort of added quest layered on top of everything for rides in Baltimore. "Starting this week, you’ll see changes to your promotions. You may be able to earn extra on each trip that begins in...

    Evening UberEats boost dropped to 1.1x like rest of day

    Don't know if Eats couriers follow this thread as there is a dedicated thread for UberEats, but as this is Minneapolis specific I'll throw this in. This week they dropped evening boost to 1.1x here, matching the lunch 1.1x drop they did a few weeks ago, and including us with other cities across...

    Class Action Lawsuit Against UberEats

    Today, I meet this guy driving UberEats and we start chatting. After a few minutes, he mentions that the current boost is 1.4x and my suspicions were verified at that moment because my boost was a whopping 1.9x !!! Uber pays different boosts to every driver depending on some algorithm in their...

    Boosts adjusted for past performance? Lunch boost reduced after $60 take.

    Lately my boosts have been getting changed significantly each week. Has anyone experienced boost adjustments based on past performance? In Minneapolis we have always gotten more for lunch than other times of the day before the evening boost, like 1.4x-1.5x (11:00am-2:00pm) vs 1.0x-1.2x (rest of...

    Boost at Jay Z & Beyoncé Concert

    So it looks like the boost was only for X & Pool rides at the Concert last night. What is Uber signaling?? First no early Surge for select and now no Boost. Not liking this at all!

    Charlotte boost schedule is weird this week - permanent change?

    I've been driving Uber Eats for the past several months, and all the weeks have had fairly consistent boost schedules/areas. This week, I open the promotions calendar to find not only is not a Quest, but the boosts are very erratic, with changes every 2 hours and large variation between days...

    A strange boost promotion...

    I don’t think there will be much competition for this one

    Anyone else hate the new surge?

    I despise the new surge, grabbed a 33 mile airport trip and the customer told me they were on a surge and I received a measly $2 extra. Also there was no surge during rush hour the past two days since the new surge was installed and yet I’ve had numerous riders say the surge is normal for them...

    Look look! the mysterious boost is back!

    Only for outside lands though... Will you be driving?

    My referral friend not getting UE boosts in Lakewood area.

    Hey guys, as you can tell I'm new to UberEats. I always have had boost promos and I'm in Berea and I have been talking up UberEats to all my friends looking to make a few extra bucks. One of my friends signed up under me the other day but she doesn't have any boost promos. IMO without the...

    Groups That Get Promotions

    I haven't been getting any boosts or promotions. I emailed UberEats about this and they wrote that promotions are not offered to everyone the same and that some groups will get them. What are these groups?
