    Direct Deposit Delayed?

    Hi, New to Ubering during the holidays - am I the only one who's direct deposit didn't go in? Usually goes in on Tuesday. I am thinking it's because of the bank holiday, but aren't those transactions automatic? Thanks for any help! NEWB in MN!

    Black Wednesday

    This article was written last year. The focus here is Naperville, which has a heavy bar presence in its downtown area. In my opinion the night before Thanksgiving doesn't get the same attention as NYE or St. Pat's, but its a significant party night. Especially with many college students home...

    Happy Easter everyone, haven't left the house to uber today, not even a 1.2 surge anywhere. Guess this one will be slow.

    Can I still cash out on NYE with Instant Pay?

    I heard in passing that we cannot cash out on New Years because uber reviews the fares. I didn't drive on NYE last year but I am planning to this year to make the rest of a bill that's due (I drive part-time when I have slow months). Does anyone know if this is true or if it's happened to you...

    Cowboys game tonight

    Considering it's a national holiday and everybody is at the bars or out drinking and watching the game, do you think there will be a lot of business tonight? Would that be a big enough event to cause surge pricing tonight? I live in the 1604/bulverde area and I'm trying to figure out where I...

    X-mas gifts

    So I might be writing off my holiday shopping this year. Now my logic is to use the actual costs method, under which gasoline is a legitimate business expense. I'm gonna buy gas gift cards for everyone in my family for X-mas. I know that's pretty slimy, and they might realize that I bought...

    Veterans Day This Friday

    Friday is Veterans Day! I know some businesses stay open so they can have the day after Thanksgiving off! Will Friday wind up being a quiet day or will it still be a normal day for Lyft and Uber?

    Queen's birthday long weekend

    Knowing that many people leave Canberra for the long weekend, my prediction is that Thursday might be huge as people take Friday off to leave town or have a 4 day weekend. Sat/Sun might be more quiet than normal seeing as it's an off pay week for public servants and Monday might be dead as...

    Your hire and reward insurance.

    Hi all, Just a quick question. As you will no doubt be aware it is an offence to double insure an item such as car insurance so I was wondering does your H&R vehicle insurance cover you abroad in the EU for holidays and or business. I currently have a great deal on private car insurance (not...

    I'm looking for best days and times to drive throughout the year. PLEASE SHARE YOUR BUSIEST DAY.

    PLEASE SHARE YOUR BUSIEST DAY AND WHY. Thank you! Has UBER or Lyft published anything relating to the highest volume days and times throughout the year? I've been a driver for about a month now and I think it would be in both companies best interest to let us know this info. They will have...
