I was on a perfectly good ride challenge lvl. 99 rides and I might just loose my shit.
I also got the email to get an Amp. I just reactivated my account a month ago and don’t have anywhere near what I thought were the requirements to get it.Since the new Lyft system has been put into place I have not received ANY bonus challenges, prime time offers, or promotions other than the one or two times weeks ago that were sh!tty 5-ride streak bonus offers within one random specific hour window.
But somehow I have just "earned" my Lyft Amp a couple days ago when I haven't had any completed Lyft rides since the end of May (I have had a couple ride requests I accepted ghost me and disappear from my app like they never existed after accepting them and starting to head to the pick up). Lol
Nothing to be ashamed of dude. After three years of this, I’ve seen this market get flooded with college kids in summer. Now that Davis finished this week, it gets worse. I recently drove a Sac driver to the bus as he fair drove in the Bay all weekend. He said it was the only way he could rationalize renting. This market doesn’t have the demand for making a rental profitable. Nor an XL. Not when only 15-20% of your rides get that rate. That was me.
Sounds about right. Hopefully your saving 25% for taxes. With a rental there is no mileage deduction.I rent and drive in sf to be able to get the ride # bonuses to pay for the rental with lyft/hertz; I was not able to get ride # bonus in sacto unless I drove 6 days/wk. But when Lyft lowered the rate and bonus to try to get you to drive 6 days for free rental, I switched to uber/fair. Now I drive 3 days/wk and make what I made with Lyft driving 4 days/wk. Lower rental cost, lower #rides required for bonuses, slightly higher pay/mile. In sacto lyft I averaged 1-2 rides/hr, sf Lyft 3-4 rides/hr, sf uber 3 rides/hrView attachment 331983. I usually dont drive fri/sat night, the must drive nights in sacto.
Stones came in big a week ago. Walked in won $500 in freeplay turned it into just over a thousand. Spending it all on roadtrip in anaheim/san diego/ la right now.I made it to 55 rides last week. 36 hours. Thunder valley helped out a lot. Between Texas hold ‘em and craps I saved my week. About to start and try again this week for the 99 ride bonus.
Good old thunder valley. The biggest ashtray in Northern California. One second of exposure to the casino and you stink like nobody’s business.Lol I haven't been in sacto for about 20 yrs before doing rideshare and I get this ride taking me off the freeway to a single desolate road....to thunder valley. Didn't expect to roll up to a highrise hotel in the middle of nowhere with a full parking lot and people coming in and out. Picked up this old asian pas who looked like she was up all night or more and didn't seem like she did too well.
