With #exploreoregon being one of the top hashtags in Portland, it’s safe to say Rose City residents love to get out and see new things — shops, neighborhoods and restaurants alike. And now we’re making it even easier for them to do just that.
Today, we’re launching a partnership with Validated, an app that lets shops and restaurants cover the cost of Lyft for their customers. Simply shop and dine at any Validated business throughout Portland, and you’ll be rewarded with Lyft credit for making the trip.
Curious how to do this? We’ve included steps below for how to find Validated businesses in Portland and get Lyft credits once you’ve visited them.
Whether you use Lyft as a driver to help pay the bills or as a passenger to get home safely, our goal is to make it easier for you to experience where we live and connect with your fellow Portlanders.
How to Use Validated to Pay for Your Lyft Ride
Open the app: find shops and restaurants that will help pay for your transportation. Search by name, neighborhood, or zip code; sort by category; or browse the map to see what’s nearby.
Hit spending targets when you shop and dine: select a merchant to view their campaigns. Remember to keep your receipt!
Get Validated: select the merchant and scan your receipt.
Stack credits from multiple merchants and push them directly to your Lyft account. Save them for a special occasion or use them to help pay for your next ride.
