Extra $800 for referring a friend with a Premier-qualifying Vehicle


  • You can earn an additional $800 for every Premier-qualifying driver you refer between August 26, 2016 at 5:00am and September 9, 2016 at 4:59pm. To qualify, the new applicant must become approved within 30 days of starting their application and must give 50 rides in 30 days after they have been approved. The applicant will also receive $800 if they satisfy all requirements. This promotion is in addition to the existing in-market driver referral bonus.

  • Promotion only available for new applicants in the Washington DC market.

  • Qualifications for this promotion are subject to existing referral terms and conditions which can be found here.

  • The additional $800 bonus will be paid out separately from the standard in-market driver referral bonus. Qualifying referrers and applicants should receive the bonus 14-21 days after all requirements have been met.

  • If a referred applicant has an existing application, they are only eligible for the referral amount, if any, associated with that original application, and they are not eligible for any other referral amount. Referrers are only paid for applicants who have never applied to Lyft before. This prior referral promotion may have expired, in which case the applicant will not be eligible for a referral bonus.

  • Applicants who select an Express Drive rental vehicle are not eligible for this bonus, and referrers will not earn a bonus for such applicants.

  • Drivers cannot earn referral bonuses for referring themselves.

  • Lyft driver eligibility and approval is determined at the sole discretion of Lyft, and is not guaranteed. The duration of the review process may vary.

  • Participation in this promotion is subject to Lyft's Terms of Service. Terms of this promotion are subject to change.
