    New to rideshare

    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to Uber/Lyft and was wondering if anyone would be willing to hop on the phone to chat about their experiences, things they wish they knew, and pro tips. I am looking to drive and I figure this is the place to start. I'm trying to hear from as many people as I can! If...

    UE have stripped me from promotions and boosts and refuse to give me information

    Hello As the subject states, Uber has completely stripped me of other benefits for no reason. I've been delivering with Uber since late last Summer and have had no real issues with the app until recently. I was unable to work for 3 weeks as my car didn't have insurance, and when I came back to...

    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 promotions disappeared

    Does anybody know why Uber eats doesn't have promotions anymore? Is this the first time this has happened in this market? Should we expect them to come back eventually? I've just recently started delivering with them and it's very disheartening to take such a hit.

    Boost vs Quest

    Can someone explain to me why both Quest and Boost are needed? For example, why add a Quest when you can increase Boost? Or the reverse. Do drivers view them differently? Both of them have the goal of making more drivers drive more.

    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 promotions this weekend?

    Exactly as title says, I'm totally dry for any promotions on both Uber & Lyft so far this weekend. No $3/ride bonus during certain hours, no counting rides to a bonus. Rough.

    No more pool

    Uber's IPO would mean that there will be a much increased pressure from investors to turn a profit. That could potentially force Uber to stop subsidizing rides, giving promotions, raise pax rates and eventually get rid of pool. What do you think?

    Is the promotions drought in Canberra breaking?

    Check the forums for other Australian cities and you’ll see see threads about promotional bonuses for completing a specified number of trips. Canberra has missed out until now. But this afternoon I received the following text from Ola: EARN EXTRA WITH OLA THIS WEEKEND! Simply complete: 4...

    Promos this weekend

    This is the first weekend in awhile with no streaks for me. I only have 40 rides for $80 as a promotion. I took a week off so that could have effected my promotions. What is everyone else’s weekend looking like? Also it has been an extreme amount of drivers the past few weeks. Hopefully it will...

    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...

    We had a good thing going on.....

    I haven't drive for almost 4 months now and today I received the email telling me to update my Insurance that is about to expire. So I opened the app and saw for first time the new changes they have made on it and I started checking it out and when I got to the promotions I saw the $40 extra for...

    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?

    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...

    Has Uber always been paying the difference on Quests for quota #2?

    I saw there was a promo this week. A Quest of $90 at 40 rides, and it then shows "+$135" at 60 rides. Though it's been awhile since I've completed both tiers in a quest, I would SWEAR on my life that I would get paid the face value of the advertised promo upon hitting each number of rides as...
