When I first signed up to drive with Uber I had no idea that Uber was giving away generous new Uber driver sign up bonus cash offer after the new drivers completed a set number of required rides. I also didn’t know that in order to actually receive that new Uber driver signup bonus the new driver had to be referred
by an existing or current active Uber driver. I found out later that Uber provides every new driver a promo or invite code to share with friends and family who might be interested in driving with Uber. And, when
that new driver applies the promo or invites code during sign up that allows for both the referring driver and the invitee (new driver) to qualify for a cash bonus. It’s an incentive program Uber designed to attract new drivers, and encourage current drives to share the Uber driving opportunity with others. Needless to say, I missed out on a $600 Uber driver cash sign up bonus because I was not referred by another driver, or did not apply the required promo code or invite code when I signed up to drive with Uber.
NOTE: Retroactive Bonus Codes are Current and Active-2019!

How Does a Missed Uber Driver Sign-up Bonus Occur?
Uber provides current drivers with a referral promo invite code or driver referral promotional link which allows them to sign up friends and family to drive with Uber. Both the new Uber driver and the referring Uber driver can receive a generous cash bonus reward once the new driver completes the required rides based on the promotional offer in the new driver’s city. Unfortunately, many new drivers are unaware of the new Uber driver sign up bonus and sign up directly with Uber.com without using a promo, invite or referral code provided by a current Uber driver. Thus a new Uber driver sign-up bonus is never generated. In general, there are several reasons why you may have missed you Uber driver sign up bonus:
- You didn’t know Uber had a signup bonus for new drivers
- You didn’t know you have to be “referred” by a current and active Uber driver
- You forgot to add a promo, referral or invite code during the signup process
- You thought Uber gave a signup bonus to every new driver that signs up
Note: Promo, invite or referral code terms all share the same meaning
How Much is My Retroactive Uber Referral Invite Code Sign-up Bonus?
New Uber driver sign up bonuses can range anywhere from $25 to $1,250 depending on your city, and the promotion that Uber may be offering during that specific promotional period. Uber driver sign up bonus amounts may vary month to month, and week to week, thus are subject to change at any given time. Unfortunately, Uber doesn’t publish or share new Uber driver sign bonus amounts or promotional information on their website, or to the general public so it’s hard to say what your Retroactive Uber Referral Invite Code-Missed Uber Driver Sign-up Bonus will be. However, if your a current, or newly signed up Uber driver, you can contact Uber via email or visit an Uber Greenlight Hub drive support center and inquire on what the Uber driver sign up bonuses are in your city. If you decide to sign up be sure to provide the Uber reps with my referral/promo code information so you can get a sign up bonus.
