Harry here with our first bonus update of 2017. The new year has brought with it a few structural changes to Lyft’s new driver bonus program in some cities. Let’s take a look at what’s changed, and how you can get the best sign-on bonus available – whether you want to deliver food and packages on DoorDash, Postmates, and UberEATS – or deliver people with Uber and Lyft.
I always recommend that drivers sign up for at least a couple services since it only takes a few minutes, and when you try a new service, you may find it’s more profitable than your usual gig. It all depends on the time: the midday hours (11 a.m.-2 p.m.) are usually pretty slow on Uber and Lyft, but for drivers on DoorDash, Postmates, et al., lunchtime can be a cash cow. If you’re looking to get the most out of ridesharing, adding services to your repertoire can help maximize profits and minimize downtime. And if anything, it’s good to always have a back up plan in case the Uber app goes down. With that said – let’s look at those bonuses.
