There are a few important reminders you need to know when entering your Lyft driver sign up bonus promo invite code:

  1. You must enter the Lyft promo referral-invite code DRIVELYFTUSAin the initial Lyft driver sign up bonus form
  2. Not entering the Lyft promo-referral invite code, or properly applying it will disqualify you from receiving a new Lyft driver sign up bonus
  3. You must meet the new Lyft driver sign-up bonus requirements to qualify:
    1. Complete a required amount of rides (ex. 25-50/may vary by city/market)
    2. Complete the required amount of Lyft rides within a certain time period (ex. within 30 days/may vary by city/market)
  4. You cannot sign up twice for Lyft so be sure to enter the correct name, email, city, phone, and of course the Lyft promo invite code: RDPROMOCODE
  5. To ensure you enter the promo/referral code RDPROMOCODE correctly, it will now be generated for you automatically in the new Lyft driver sign up bonus form

Lfyt driver promo invite referral code sign up bonus 1How Much is a New Lyft Driver Sign-up Bonus?

Depending on the city you are in new Lyft driver sign up bonus amounts generally range from $100-$1,000, but has been as high as $2,000 and $5,000 recently in several markets. Lyft driver sign up bonuses may also change based on the promotion available at that time.

  • Once you sign up to drive Lyft will notify you of your new Lyft driver sign up bonus amount, and requirements via email.
  • You will receive your Lyft driver sign-up bonus once you have completed the following basic requirements:
    • Complete the required amount of rides/trips (required rides vary by city/promotion)
    • Complete the required amount of trips within a set number of days (generally 30 but may vary based on promotion)
  • It’s important that read the additional eligibility requirements to drive as indicated in the sections listed below
  • I highly recommend you apply via our promotional code link as the promo invite code is automatically added for you. This ensures you won’t forget to apply it during the signup process, and miss out on your new Lyft driver sign-up bonus
  • To qualify for your Lyft driver sign up bonus, be sure you use the Lyft driver promo invite code provided: RDPROMOCODE or new Lyft driver sign up bonus promo link provided here
  • Lyft driver sign up bonus amounts are double-sided meaning that the new driver (invitee or referred), and the referring driver (referrer or inviter) will both receive the same amount once the new driver completes the required amount of rides within the required amount of days (Note: based on some promotions the new driver may receive more than the referring driver)

How Lyft Driver Sign up Bonuses Works

Lyft Driver Sign-Up Bonuses: How they WorkMany current, and new Lyft drivers are confused when it comes to how a Lyft driver sign up bonus works, and the amount of the bonus they will receive. I have researched the topic thoroughly to help guide you and provide you with as much clarity to reduce any frustration or disappointment you may encounter. I’m also an expert when it comes to both the Lyft driver sign up bonus process and the Uber driver sign up bonus process, including how it all works for both the new driver and the referring driver. The biggest misconception that prospective or new Lyft drivers have is how promo invite codes and bonus amounts work. Many new drives scour the internet looking for the “Best” promo, referral, or invite code that will give then the “Highest” Lyft driver sign up bonus reward. However, it’s not the promo code, promotional landing page or promise from a bloggers website that will determine how much your new Lyft driver sign up bonus will be, but rather the amount that is set by Lyft for your specific city and/or market. Most potential new Lyft drivers will waste time searching the internet for that “special” promo, referral or invite code or promotional link only to find out they will not get the Lyft driver sign up bonus amount they expected. To thoroughly help you to unravel the mystery, and truth surrounding your Lyft driver sign up bonus, and how they really work see the “LYFT DRIVER SIGN UP BONUSES EXPLAINED” content below:

[gap height=”10″]

  • A Lyft driver sign up bonus is a promotional cash incentive Lyft offers to new drivers to encourage them to sign up and drive for Lyft
  • In order to qualify for Lyft’s cash reward bonus you must be referred by a current/active Lyft driver, and use that current driver’s promo, referral, invite code during sign up, or sign up through the referring drives new Lyft driver sign up bonus promotional landing page which has the promo invite code added for you to the signup form
  • When you become a new driver you to will also be provided with your own promo referral invite code and landing page that you can share with friends, family, and associates, and invite them to drive for Lyft.
  • Lyft’s referral program allows current drivers to invite new drivers where both can receive a generous cash reward after the new driver meets all the requirements
  • Lyft sign up bonuses are paid out to both the referring driver (inviter), and the referred (invitee) driver when the new driver completes the required amount of rides (ex. 50-100) usually within 30 days
  • There is NO SPECIAL promo, referral, or invite code that will pay a new driver a “HIGHER” bonus amount when they sign up to drive for Lyft. Again, Lyft sets the bonus amounts based on your city only, not an individual drivers invite code
  • Lyft driver sign up bonus amounts are set by Lyft based on city/market, and new drivers will ONLY receive the bonus amount for that city/market at the time the promotion is available
  • Regardless of the promo or invite code, or promotional landing page a new driver uses during sign up, that new driver will receive the same bonus amount
  • A Lyft sign up bonus amount is generated based on the city a new driver entered into the signup form as Lyft databases all cites inputs to correspond with a specific sign up bonus output amount. For example, entering the city “San Francisco” will generate a $500 signup bonus whereas entering or imputing “Denver” will output $100.
  • You cannot receive multiple Lyft sign up bonuses or sign up twice after initially completing a signup form.
  • Unlike Uber, Lyft does not allow for a “retroactive referral code” to added to your account in the event you signed up without being referred or did not use a referral, promo, or invite code
  • Other than driving for fares/earnings, signing up new Lyft drivers, and new Lyft riders is part of your available income opportunities, and can substantially your overall income
  • Promo Code, Invite Code or Referral Code all share the same meaning

How Much Does a Lyft Driver Make?

how much does a lyft driver makeLyft drivers today are earning anywhere between $18-$40 per average hour depending on city and market and in some cases
even more, as some divers take full advantage of Lyft driver and passenger referral opportunities. Lyft driver earnings can vary from city to city, driver to driver, and whether your a full-time or part-time Lyft driver. The great part is, unlike most traditional part-time or full-time jobs, your not paid by the hour or confined to a weekly schedule. Instead with Lyft, you have the freedom and flexibility to drive when you want, where you want, and how many hours you want, making this gig one of the best ones out there today. Aside from a generous new Lyft driver sign-up bonus to start, Lyft also offers multiple opportunities to help you boost your income. I’ve outlined all of them to give you insight on what to expect when you become a Lyft driver:

  • Lyft Driver Fares Earnings:

    Earning from fares is the primary way a Lyft driver will earn his/her income as a Lyft driver. Lyft drivers are paid 80% of each ride they provide to a passenger on the Lyft platform, which can add up to a nice

  • Lyft Prime Time:

    Prime Time is a great opportunity to boost your earnings as a Lyft driver when rider demand exceeds the number of Lyft drivers (supply) available to accept requests. Passengers will pay an extra fare percentage on top of the base fare amount, and drivers will earn extra money on their fare earnings. For example, a $10 passenger fare would become a $20 fare during Prime Time periods at 100% Prime Time. If Prime Time was at 50% for the same ride that $10 passenger fare would be a $15 fare. Prime Time can range from 25%-400% especially during high demand event periods such as New Years Eves, holidays, sporting events, concerts, festivals, busy Friday and Saturday nights, and during peak rush hours 7 am-10 am, and 5-8 pm weekdays. The great part is Lyft will always give drivers a heads up via email and text notification when these busy Prime Time periods will occur.

  • Lyft Hourly Guarantees:

    Lyft Hourly Guarantees is another great way to take advantage of one of many Lyft incentives offered to drivers. Depending on the city Lyft may offer a special guarantee hourly rates if you drive during specific eligible hours. Lyft Hourly Guarantees are designed to incentive and encourage drivers to drive during certain times when demand may be high like during events or holidays, but may also be offered randomly. In order to qualify for Lyft Hourly Guarantees you will have to meet several basic criteria such as the following:

    • Opt-in for each pay week
    • Maintain a weekly 90% acceptance rate.
    • During each hour: be in driver mode at least 50 minutes, fulfill requirements for each completed rides, and be within designated guaranteed zones while accepting rider requests.  
  • Lyft Power Driver Bonus:

    Another awesome way to boost your income is the Lyft Power Driver Bonus program which rewards drivers with a weekly cash bonus based on how many rides they drive in a given week. At the end of the week’s pay period Lyft will actually reimburse a driver the 20% commission they took from each ride fare during that week allowing a driver to keep up to 100% of all fares earned. For example, let’s say a Lyft driver had gross earnings of $1,100 at the week’s end. Lyft’s 20% commission fee on $1,100 would be 20% x $1,100=$220 leaving a driver $880 in net earnings. Providing a driver meets all the Power Driver Requirements for the given week Lyft will reimburse that driver they’re own commission fee of $220 giving the driver net earnings of $1,100. Wow!

    Power Driver Bonus requirements:

    • City or Region: The Lyft Power Driver Bonus Program must be available in your city
    • Vehicle: The Lyft drivers car must be 2011 or newer
    • Rides: A Lyft driver must meet a specific number of rides to qualify which may include a specific number of peak rides.
    • Acceptance Rate: A Lyft driver must accept at least 90% of all ride request for that week
  • Tips/Gratuities:

To give you an insight into the value of the Lyft platform as a new driver its good to know that Lyft riders have the option to tip in the rider app. In fact last year alone Lyft drivers have received over $200 million in tips from riders through the Lyft app. Wow! $200 million! Now that makes for happy drivers for sure! Without a doubt, the tipping option is a nice feature and can definitely help to boost your income. Many full-time drivers I talk with earn between $150-$400 per month in tips alone.

  • Lyft Rider Referrals

Referring riders is a great way to increase your income as a Lyft driver. Lyft has the highest paying rider referral reward in the industry with many top drivers earning hundreds if not thousands a month in rider referral bonus money. The best part is any rider referral rewards you receive are a cash incentive meaning Lyft doesn’t take out any commission from your payout. Be sure to look for your Lyft rider referral code in the Lyft driver app and share it with as many friends and family members as possible. It’s a win-win for both rider and you as the rider gets up to $50 in free rides, and you can get up to $20 for each rider you refer.

  • Lyft Driver Referrals

Probably one of the most lucrative ways to earn extra money as a Lyft driver is with the Lyft driver sign-up bonus referral program. Lyft provides every new driver with a referral code and a promotional landing page which enables them to share with friends, family, and social networks. Lyft referrals can have a major impact on increasing your earnings substantially as some drivers are making over $1,000 per week average taking full advantage of promoting their new Lyft driver promo invite codes. It’s important to understand that you as an independent contractor rideshare driver have 3 ways to earn an income: 1. drive for fares 2. sign-up Lyft riders, and 3. sign-up Lyft drives. focusing on all 3 will allow you to earn the most as a Lyft driver so don’t leave money on the table!

How Lyft Drivers Earnings Are Calculated

Lyft driver sign up bonus

Driving for Lyft is absolutely worth it considering the fact you can earn some great extra income in your spare time, and even get paid the same day. Understandings how the Lyft payment system and fare structure works is important when it comes to tracking your earnings and calculating fares when double-checking your payout. The Lyft payment is determined using the following principles:

[gap height=”5″]
  • Lyft drivers are paid based on the riders fare calculated including base, time, and distance along with some miscellaneous fees which are passed through fees charged to the rider and don’t affect a drivers payout
    • Base Fare: The amount passengers pay at the start of the ride.
    • Time/Cost Per Minute: The amount you earn per minute in the city/market where your ride begins.
    • Distance/Cost Per Mile: The amount you earn per mile in the city/market where your ride begins
    • Example Trip: Base=$1.50, Time=$.22, Distance=$1.20. Lyft driver Sally gives passenger john a ride traveling 12 miles, at 24 minutes=$1.50(B)+24(T) x $.22($5.28)+12(D)x$1.20 ($14.40)=$21.18-25% (Lyft fee)=$16.09 in Net Earnings for Sally for a 24 Minute Trip. Not bad!
  • Lyft driver gets 80% of the whole fee for initiating a ride while Lyft takes a commission of the remaining at 20%
  • Drivers are paid weekly through direct deposits payments via ACH payment directly to your bank account.
  • Lyft drivers also have the option of cashing out their earnings instantly using Lyft’s “Express Pay” option. Express Pay will allow you to cash out all your earnings, including driver and rider referral bonuses, instantly to your debit card on file before your regular weekly deposit occurs. You must have at least $50 or more in earnings available to cash out at a small fee of only $0.50 per transaction. The best part is your Express Pay earnings can be deposited in a matter of minutes to a few hours depending on your personal bank’s processing time which gives you access to cash anytime you need it.
  • You will receive daily and weekly summaries giving details of your earnings, performance, number of trips taken, rider feedback and much more. If you referred a friend to sign up as a Lyft driver you will also be able to track them in your Lyft app dashboard under “Driver Referrals” and see full details of their progress, and bonus amount.

When Does a Lyft Drivers Get Paid?

Lyft driver sign-up bonusLyft driver earnings are totaled each week, Monday through Sunday. Payment transfers for the previous week will begin to be processed on Tuesday with your earnings to be transferred to your bank account generally by Thursday of that week. However, in 2014 Lyft introduced “Express Pay” which allows Lyft drivers to cash out their earnings anytime, directly to their debit card on file receiving any amount over $50 to be available for immediate use. The Lyft Express Pay feature has been an invaluable option for drivers in need of cash on the fly, or top has cash on hand to help them through the week ahead. While getting paid anytime is a surely great option, I highly recommend every Lyft driver apply basic financial management skills when it comes to your income this way your money is properly budgeted and dispersed for the week to best eliminate any risk of falling behind on your bills.

Lyft vs Uber-Which is Better to Drive With?

Uber vs LyftI receive lots of calls, emails, and questions by many new and current drivers asking me if it’s better to be a Lyft driver or an Uber driver. My answer is always the same-both. While you may have a preference of being either a Lyft or Uber driver, you are still in the rideshare business which means having access to both the Lyft and Uber platform will increase your options, and thus enable you to earn the most. Both Lyft and Uber have their own set of incentives, promotions, and rewards programs designed to entice drivers to drive on they’re the platform. By utilizing as many options available at your disposal, and creating strategies to take advantage of what both platforms have to offer, you can expand, diversify, and increase your earnings potential. Also having options will protect your income should something go wrong on either platform like a network issue, temporary suspension or even permanent deactivation. Most smart rideshare drivers are prepared and have a backup plan by being vetted on multiple platforms, and so should you. Additionally, both Lyft and Uber have bonus promotion reward programs that enable you to earn substantial additional income by referring both riders and drivers to each platform. Using your promo invite codes as another income generating rideshare tool can be very lucrative so be sure to be vetted on both platforms to maximize your overall income as a rideshare driver. And, remember you’re not in the Lyft or Uber business, but rather the “Rideshare” business.

Pros & Cons of Being a Lyft Driver

Every business has its pros and cons, challenges and benefits. As a rideshare driver, independent contractor and thus business owner, the rideshare business is no exception. However, the more informed, educated and experienced you are in the business you’re in, the more successful you will be.

My Personal Experience & Review as a Lyft Driver

As the first official rideshare driver in the industry since 2011, I will attest first hand with an unbiased opinion that joining Lyft as a driver has been a blessing, and worthwhile. Being a Lyft driver has supported me in reaching my goals in starting my own successful digital marketing and photography business. Without the freedom and flexibility to study my trade and take care of my family, while earning income at the same time I’m confident it would have taken me much longer to achieve my objectives. Aside from getting a huge new Lyft driver sign-up bonus of $500 when I started, driving on my schedule, and making a great income as a new Lyft driver, some of my most exciting and memorable experiences as a rideshare driver have been on the Lyft platform. The Lyft rider community has been kind, fun, interesting, generous, and a pleasure to serve. Nothing brings me more joy knowing I got my rider to their destination safe and sound every time. Connecting too with other Lyft drivers in the community at events, coffee shops or in Facebook Lyft driver groups has been a blast as all have been supportive, awesome and super fun.

Many drivers I have been in contact with, including myself have been very satisfied with our overall experience as a Lyft driver, thus I highly recommend any new or current rideshare drivers become a fully vested member of the Lyft driver community.
