2017 Sign Up Bonuses

2017 Sign Up Bonuses

Interested in becoming a rideshare driver for Lyft and Uber? Remember, no referral code means no sign up bonus for you. Use the following referral codes to get your sign up bonus.

If you go directly to Uber or Lyft site and do not use a referral code, you will NOT get a sign up bonus. While retroactive referrals sometimes work but mostly do not, don’t add the extra hassle and stress of the back and forth communication between you and Lyft/Uber support requesting for your bonus. ‘

Why do I need a referral code to sign up? It is important to use a VALID driver referral code before signing up as a new driver because according to Lyft, the referral bonus program was constructed to reward community members. Therefore, they will NOT give you any bonus at all if you sign up directly without keying a referral code. They also do not retroactively honor a referral- meaning you can’t give them a code after the fact. Once you have successfully created an account (verified your phone, gave car info, social security, etc) and they have placed you on their system- AND YOU FORGOT to key in a code, or they changed the bonus amount without warning– you are no longer a *new* driver and are not qualified to receive any or you will only receive the new bonus amount at the time of sign up.

PLEASE NOTE: Amounts and ride requirements are dynamic and ever changing. Verify before signing up.

Drive for LYFT: Use referral code: MAE398950

Lyft’s sign up bonus are extremely poles apart. In cities like Reno and Phoenix, Lyft gives $10 sign up bonus. Nope, that is not a typo- it is ten bucks for completing 30 rides in 30 days. In the opposite end, you have New York City and Los Angeles where Lyft gives a whopping $1000 and $2000 sign up bonuses respectively.

Drive for UBER: Use referral code: yy0l4

Uber’s sign up bonus is not always clear and they do not publicize a city table similar to Lyft’s. From experience however, Uber’s sign up bonus could be up to $1000 depending on the city you would like to drive. IMPORTANTEmail support@uber.com to clarify a particular sign up bonus amount. If Uber support says they don’t have any current bonus on your area, DO NOT SIGN UP! Always wait for a sign up bonus to make your experience worthwhile. However, if you really want to get started- you can sign up of course and just work on getting more drivers oto sign up using your own link so you get rewarded for the referral. When you’re ready to sign up, use your friend’s code or you may use ours here.
