Boost offered Daily *NEVER* Paid..

Hey Folks, Semi-new Uber driver. Maybe someone can explain what I am misunderstanding about the daily boost offered in my App and me never getting a single boost payment.


Every day in my app, I am offered the following 3.0x boost offers:

I travel well inside the boost area, and pickup and drop off several riders where the trip starts and ends within the blue boundary as depicted by the boost offer. When I get payment I of course get no boost pay whatsoever. When I call Uber driver support they spout that the boost pay is only valid for "Uber Rush" and not applicable to uberX - and that I should look in my Uber app for the daily boost offers that are applicable to me. As can be see in the screen shots of my app, the 3.0x boost *is* offered to me, and there is nothing whatsoever stating that it is valid for "Uber Rush" only? WTF? - I can find nothing anywhere on ubers help (or entire Uber website for that matter) explaining what uber Rush even is? If I google "Uber Rush" all I can find is descriptions that say Uber discontinued the service a couple years ago?

How are you more experienced drivers figuring out what Boost offers are actually legitimate offers for UberX rides?

thanks!

"Uber Rush" is the company's internal name for Eats.

When you get an Eats ping, notice it says "Delivery--Meal". They dabbled in other types of deliveries but "Meal" is the only one that took off.

thanks for the clarification on rush=eats :smiles:

So, can I assume if I go up into that 3.0x boost area, turn off UberX and turn on Deliveries only, I should get the 3.0x Boost if I am in the outlined Boost area for the pickup or delivery? I can work with that!

thanks again!

Well thats very interesting. I havent ever seen it but its the only thing that might entice me to go deliver food.
