Is there a “right time” to sign up and drive for Uber or Lyft? While you definitely have to sign up with a referral code to get any sort of bonus or guaranteed earnings, when you sign up with a code could make a difference in how much you’re offered. Today, RSG contributor Melissa Berry details how sign up bonuses work, if using a different referral code will earn you more money, and if signing up at a certain time of year really matters.
Before I started driving, I assumed you could just get started, start earning money, and get a bonus for doing so. Boy, was I wrong! I signed up to drive during the summertime in Phoenix, AZ, where I live. This is the wrong time of year to do many things in Phoenix, including:
- Be outside
- Start driving for Uber/Lyft
- Assume you’re going to get the best sign up bonus
If you’re looking for one easy answer to the question of “What time of year has the highest signup bonuses?” you won’t exactly find it here – but you will find strategies to figure out when is the best time of year to get sign up bonuses in your market.
