The Best Lyft Promo Codes For Existing Users
I’m sure you have seen plenty of Lyft promo codes for new users. But what if you have already taken your first ride and used up your promo code? Well, worry not because you can still earn free Lyft credit. While there are no Lyft promo codes for existing users, there are methods of earning ride credit that will get you on the road free of charge.
1. Get your friends to sign up for Lyft
If you know of a friend that doesn’t have Lyft yet, tell them about it and you can get a free ride. How? By using Lyft’s “Give a ride get a ride” feature!
Lyft gives existing users $20 in free ride credit for every new rider that they refer to the app. This is a double-sided referral bonus, so both you AND your referral will get a $20 ride credit. Use one to get to your destination and the other on the way back. Or simply pocket the referral bonus for another time! $20 is more than enough to get you around town, so you can see how this would greatly benefit you.
How do you refer a friend?
Referring a friend to Lyft is easy. Navigate to the Account page in your Lyft app, then click the “Free Rides” options from the left side of the menu. From there you will be able to share your code with your contacts through the built-in sharing options. You can also manually post that same code on social media sites, a personal blog, email, or word-of-mouth.
2. Bum a Lyft ride
If you go out in groups, there is almost always somebody that doesn’t have Lyft, so this is a surefire way to get a free ride. If they don’t have the app yet, share your code with them and you will both get a free ride credit. However, if they simply haven’t used their ride credit yet, hop in the car with them and bum a free ride. The ride will cost them nothing, so they will more than likely be fine with you tagging along.
3. Try out Uber or Sidecar
The best, quickest, and easiest way to get free ridesharing credit is to think outside the box and check out other ridesharing services like Lyft. Lyft is cool and revolutionary, but there are 2 other services just like it that you can use to get free rides. These alternatives are Uber and Sidecar, and both offer free ride credits for new users.
Refer to one of the following Uber and Sidecar codes for a free ride:
Uber is one of the best ridesharing companies in the industry, and is backed by billions of dollars in funding. This means am awesome referral program with some of the highest referral bonuses. Take advantage of the referral program by using one of the promo codes listed below. *These are good for a ride credit worth up to $30. Amount varies by city.
Sidecar is different from both Lyft and Uber because rides are determined by pre-set criteria set by the riders, such as price and type of vehicle. While Sidecar is not quite as big as Uber and Lyft, it is still a reliable, free ride that is just a few taps away.
4. Snag an event-specific Lyft promotion code
Lyft partners with well-known brands and events from time to time. This usually entails them being the official “transportation sponsor” of an event, resulting in free rides for attendees. They will usually release a custom promo code specific to the event, and will set the code so it expires at the same time the event ends.
The most recent example that we can find is the Lyft sponsorship at the 2015 SXSW convention. Lyft provided a promo code specific to the event that gave users free rides for the entire week. These codes were only shared with attendees, and have already expired. Watch the official Lyft blog for the most recent Lyft promotions and deals.
