This is the best first-time user bonus I have ever seen for Lyft. It’s a free ride up to $50. This is twice the amount of their normal sign-up bonus ($25).
How to get this free $50 credit:
- Download the Lyft app on your iphone or Android.
- Enter code SLICKDEALS in the Settings > Payment > Lyft Credits area.
Note: the above offer may be dead! If it no longer works for you, I’ve put together a round-up of the most recent rideshare promos and deals here. There are a lot of them out there right now.
If you haven’t tried Lyft yet, I encourage you to do it! I’ve had so many fun conversations with Lyft drivers and (this is going to sound hokey, but I’ll say it anyway) feel like I’m more connected to my community because of the rides I’ve taken with Lyft. It’s kind of a bonding experience, but not in a weird way.
If you need any more reasons to give it a try, now the first-time rider bonus is worth more with Lyft than it is with Uber.
Recently, Uber changed their policy about allowing first-time users to stack discount codes. In the past, if you were a new user, you could get a fantastic deal by using two codes at once – a referral code plus a bonus code. Together, these codes were worth up to $75 in free rides – a nice chunk of change. However, now you can only use ONE code for your new-user incentive. Currently, the best ones I’ve seen are worth $20…which doesn’t get you very far. So the days of Uber deals may be over.
Time to give Lyft a try? You might just love it.
