Did anybody receive the $10,000 IPO bonus?

I have asked this question from multiple drivers so far. I didn't know about this platform. I want to ask this question here. Anybody?
I missed it by 2,500 trips. Did Uber really give away $10,000 or it was just a publicity gimmick?

I got 1k and was under 10k rides and was surprised. Like at 9500 and they rounded up.

Lost in casino within 24 hours.

They did. You should have gotten at least 500 for that total.

It is sad there was no extra bonus for drivers who fell between 10,000 and 19,500 trips. And I am sure there were many many drivers in that range.

U make it sound like u barely missed the 10k mark. 2500 rides is 1 year of full time driving.
Not actually. I did almost 7000 trips in my first year of driving. I got burnt out then.

So u worked everyday giving 21 rides for one fill year without a day off? Thats just nuts!
I had days when I did 40+ trips. Then I switched to Select and XL, and my trip count went down signifocantly. Plus, I signed up for Lyft. So while doing XL, Select and Lux, I had no reason to do as many trips. I also got lazy and didn't chase the quests.
But damn, missing the $10,000 bonus by 2000 trips still hurts. I say 2000 because Uber would have rounded up my 19,500.

Why is it sad? I got $500 for 8k trips and I'm not complaining. As much as I hate uber you got a grand that they didn't have to give you.

Well, they didn't have to. I am not blaming them. I felt sad because I missed an opportumity. You too missed an opportunity for an extra $500. A driver here as you can read, got his/her 9,500 trip count rounded up and recieved the $1000 bonus.
One complaint that I have from Uber is that they should have given us an incentive per trip. $0.50 per trip would have been awesome.

But atleast Uber gave us something unlike their knockoff Lyft.

I got something... Might have been $500 or $1,000. Don't even remember. I'd actually forgot about it until you mentioned it! I had over 10K trips too... But split between Uber and Lyft :frown:
