I don’t do these types of posts very often because I don’t think there’s much value added in telling you about sign-up bonuses. But this one is something that I’m sure a lot of you will be able to take advantage of. Over the past couple months, I’ve received a ton of e-mails from Lyft drivers wanting to try out Uber and maximize their sign-up bonus. Most of you know that Uber has been offering $500 to Lyft drivers for a while now but this offer was generally only available to drivers with at least a few months experience with Lyft.
I actually took advantage of this offer right when I started driving and it was the easiest $500 I ever made. And yes you really do get $500 after you complete 20 trips. It’s a great deal and an easy way to make some quick cash but you have to make sure that you meet all the qualifications.
Uber’s latest promotion offers rideshare drivers from any platform $500 as long as they have given 5 rides or more before 11/1/14. So unless you signed up to drive in the last couple weeks, you should be eligible for this bonus (if you aren’t with UberX already).
