Harry here with our June sign-up bonus update. On the whole, summertime usually means slower business for drivers as people leave the city for vacations, take time off from school and work, and so forth. Of course, if you live near the beach, you might experience the opposite effect!
This month, the summer slowdown seems to be having an impact on those referral bonuses in many cities too. Although bonuses may be a bit lower, that doesn’t mean it’s not a great time to start driving. The slower months can be excellent for getting a feel for the rideshare gig without the constant pressure of keeping up with back-to-back requests. And if you’re a veteran driver, the slower pace can be a great incentive to bring new drivers on board (and earn some extra cash!)
In case you missed them, here’s our last few sign-up bonus updates:
We’ve also launched a new sign-up bonus page where you’ll always find the latest links to earn sign-up bonuses for all the various platforms, so be sure to check back if you’re not quite ready to sign up yet!
Lyft Bonuses Not Lifted
Although Lyft bonuses are mostly down from last month, they’re still a great place to start if you’re new to the industry. Not only is Lyft’s corporate culture more driver-friendly than Uber’s, the driving experience can sometimes net you an even bigger bonus from Uber if you sign up with them later on. For more reasons why you should start with Lyft, click here, or use my link to start earning your sign-up bonus right away.
Below, you’ll find the current sign-up bonuses by city, along with the number of rides you’ll need to complete in your first 30 days to earn them.
You can sign up to drive with Lyft using our link here.
Uber Bonuses Hit-Or-Miss
Unlike Lyft, Uber doesn’t publish a current list of sign-up bonuses, preferring instead to keep them secret. Their bonuses vary wildly by location – in heavily trafficked metros, bonuses can reach up to $1,000. Conversely, cities that are well-saturated already may not offer any bonus at all. The best way to find out the current offers in your area is by emailing [email protected] If you’ve already gotten some rides in with Lyft, be sure to ask about the Lyft-to-Uber bonus – this one is often the most lucrative, so if it’s still available where you are, take advantage! If you’re ready to jump in right away, you can also click here to sign up with my referral code.
If you signed up for Uber in the past couple weeks but forgot to include a referral code, you may still be eligible for a bonus. Shoot me an email and I’ll send you my code and contact info, which you can forward to Uber to earn your bonus. In most cases, they’ll apply the code for you up to 15 days after you’ve gotten onto the platform.
UberEATS is still going strong in many cities, and the per-mile payouts often equate to better income than regular UberX fares. The only way to get UberEATS requests is to accept the in-app invite and head to your local Uber support center to pick up an insulated food bag. If you haven’t received an invite yet, keep your eyes peeled, as this can be a great way to expand your income!
Diversify With DoorDash
Food delivery offers a great change of pace from passenger delivery – and you don’t have to wait for an UberEATS invite either. With DoorDash, you’ll be responsible for collecting food items from restaurants and delivering them to local homes and businesses. Unlike Uber, DoorDash lets your customers tip you, which can make it a pretty profitable gig depending on what type of orders you get. There are other perks too, like hourly guarantees during busy hours – not to mention total freedom of choice with regards to your AC and music selection!
DoorDash sign-up bonuses seem to have been ticking up lately, with offers of up to $100 in an increasing number of cities. To find out the current bonus in your area, send an email to [email protected] or click here to sign up for DoorDash using our affiliate link.
DoorDash + DailyPay Partnership
If you like getting paid instantly for the work you do (and who doesn’t?), DailyPay offers a great program which helps you cash out every time you hit the road. Previously, the service was only available to Uber drivers – but the company has expanded to accept DoorDash earnings as well. Find out more about DailyPay and other instant pay options here, or head over to DailyPay’s website to try DailyPay free for two weeks.
Postmates Bonuses Up To $200
Another major player in the delivery game is Postmates. This month, Postmates’ sign-on bonuses remain high – up to $200 in some cities. This is another great way to dip a toe into the delivery waters. If you’ve already delivered with UberEATS or DoorDash, Postmates will be a piece of cake. Go ahead and grab those bonuses by using this link to sign up for Postmates.
