Uber has a number of promotional offers to help passengers enjoy more rides and earn more money. One is the promo code, which can be redeemed for free rides on some days or weeks as well as an increase in tip amount if a passenger chooses to do so. Another promotion that users have access to is the ‘first ride credit.’
This allows new users who sign up through a referral link or if they are referred by someone with an account, and they choose not to complete their first trip within seven days of signing up, receive $20 off future rides in that city on UberX.
Uber’s referral program allows drivers to earn money when they refer new riders, which increases their own earnings. The more rides a driver takes on UberX and the higher his or her rating is, based on how many trips he has completed in that city every week over six months -the more points, which can be redeemed for free rides or other benefits, such as gift cards.
Drivers earn more money on UberX than they do with Lyft because of its lower fares and the fact that passengers are not expected to tip.
All drivers are expected to maintain a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars, which is what customers rate them on the app once they use it along with how many trips have been completed per week over six months. When riders check driver ratings in their ‘welcome‚Äù text message or when browsing the app, they are able to see if the driver has completed a minimum of 20 rides in that city within six months.
Drivers must maintain their rating over time and update it at least once per week on average for more than three years before being eligible for bonuses or promotions like free credits or gift cards after that.
Once drivers have completed 20 rides within six months, they can request a referral bonus of up to $500 for referring new riders and receive other incentives in the form of gift cards or free credits after that depending on their position within the company’s rating system. Most users will earn between 4% and 6% of each fare as a tip, but drivers can earn more if they have done well enough to reach the bonus level.
