    so, I haven’t gotten one yet ... is this **** even worth it? Has anyone found a way to convince them to just mail it to you? I don’t feel like wasting time that I could use ACTUALLY WORKING to go to a hub to pick this **** up... thoughts or recommendations?

    Free Uber advertisement. I will never understand sincc the day one, why all those clueless ftards are proudly posting those app companies stickers, beacons, signs, etc. on their vehicles, which there is no such a rule and regulation to post base names on “Black” cars.

    It's not a bad tradesign. It's Bluetooth so lights up and off when your online and glows like 8 colors that pax can pick and it glows that color for pickup.

    Knowing uber it probably does some other fked up thing like jam lyft apps

    Good point!

    Also good point. I don’t mind posting a standard light up one to mildly make it easier for someone to spot me at night, gets me less annoying phone calls from them.. but yeah, the beacon, like the Lyft amp seems like it’s all for the pax..and takes it to an unnecessary higher level...I don’t see why it would be worth me spending my own time to go get it...

    Lol

    I would get it to sell on Ebay.
    I really wanted lyft amp for that purpose, but didn’t get it.
    At least i was able to order lyft 1K driver jacket and auction it for 25$ lol

    Lol yeah for real, if there are idiots paying that much for it for some reason, I’m willing to go though the aforementioned “depressing act of selling one”.

    Makes me wonder if it will work for someone who does not qualify for one. Like Lyft, I couldn't get my amp because I had not given 250 rides lol

    LOL...looks like now I can get my amp!

    Those who desperately love toys.
    Look on ebay, you will see a bunch of that ****

    Very cheap and thin synthetic jacket. What would you expect from lyft.
    Oh, yea, it has rubber badge “1K” on chest and sleeves. Shame
    Get yours, badge lover:D

    Next thing they tell you is that your 10% acceptance disqualifies you for an amp. Lol.
