Uber competitor Lyft has a really interesting signup offer.
Here’s the signup offer:
- Join Lyft and get $10 off your first ride
- Receive 12 Starbucks Stars when you complete the ride — enough for a free drink
- Receive 12 Starbucks Stars when you complete your third ride. That’s enough for another free drink, and you’ll be 80% of the way towards Gold status.
The $10 Lyft credit expires 14 days after signup. Your third ride must be taken by April 10 to receive the second set of 12 Stars.
Let’s say that a free Starbucks drink is ‘worth’ $6. $10 ride credit and 2 drinks are worth $22. So I think the standard $50 referral credit (my link) is way better. But people do love Starbucks Stars, and the credit towards Starbucks elite status (such as it is).
Of course the whole Starbucks Rewards program will be going revenue-based next month. Get in while the getting is good.
I generally use Uber, but have used Lyft and it’s very very similar albeit not in as many markets. Several months ago in DC I simply could not get the Uber app to open on my phone, so Lyft was a lifesaver. I like having competition in the ridesharing market as well. So it’s worth giving Lyft a shot.
