Another one bites the dust....

My friend started driving for Uber three weeks ago. I received $500 and she received $200 after her first 40 trips. During the first week, she received an email incentive...take 10 trips for $50, 20 for $100 or 40 for $300. There were no requirements, such as pool acceptance, etc. She had to do the "help desk dance"with Uber to get the payment, about seven emails. The second week, the same thing...except she's still going back and forth with them. She decided, if it's like this in just the first two weeks, it just wasn't worth it. Don't blame her at all....

Something I'm curious about though, does OP plan to return the referral fee since it didn't work out and all? Only seems fair...

it's a shame that Uber burned out a star Prospect and most likely lost money in doing so. the company got what they deserved with this young lady

GREAT!! One less driver and ROOKIE driver on the road.

Don't complain about:
not getting pings
no surge
not enough money
if you're referring drivers...LOL

She actually didn't care about surge nor a lot of trips. Her incentives were based on the number of trips...no pool acceptance requirement, no overall acceptance, needed to be completed within a five day window. She stayed in the south suburbs. Wasn't in it to make a lot of money, just $100 or so a week until her seasonal job starts back up in August. She had the option of completing 10, 20 or 40 rides...she was happy with 20 and would have continued until she realized it was going to be a weekly email war about payments.

speaking of...I had a text to receive $75 bucks when I took my first ride. I followed the text link and went online, and got my first ride. When should I expect to see that $75 bucks?

I was offered $50 after 1st trip and $200 after 50 trips and it appeared on Monday's payment. Probably will sign up for Lyft since they cough up $500

It should have been on your pay statement on Monday and in your bank on Wednesday. My suggestion....start the emails....

I think Lyft is back down to $150 now
You're right, HoosierGal. $150 for giving 60 rides in 30 days. Source: https://help.lyft.com/hc/en-us/articles/214678827 Pitiful!

You'd think that after Chicago government forced 10,000 drivers (Uber & Lyft) out of the Chicago market in June, the Driver Referral bonus would be much higher now. Just goes to show that even with this pruning, Lyft has too many drivers in Chicagoland.

Uber is offering me 500 to bring on drivers this week, but I don't want to make anymore enemies yet.

I referred two drivers in one week..Uncle gUBER gave me an extra $60. Still haven't driven for them in two weeks. One is still driving after the first 50 trips, the other quit. Waiting for LYFT to go back to $450 from their measly $150

Yep, dine n dash


Oh and preferably refer a group of N+1 drivers for an N-trip bonus, and have then drive SOLELY each other, one trip each with each.

That way Uber gets NOTHING (bonus exceeds commissions on minfares) and no paxholes gets a single ride!!!!!
