How do I delete my credit card from Lyft?

I cannot figure this out. I do not want my credit card number stored with Lyft. I cannot figure out how to delete it though. I have tried two different phones, so I don't think it is the phone. I suppose I could always add another credit card, but then that kind of defeats the point.

As far as I know, you can't have an account open without a valid credit card. You can contact them and have them close the account.

If you have the option of using Apple Pay, you can use Lyft without having to enter credit card information in the app.

Same is true for Android Pay, but then you need to have your credit card on file with Apple or Google. My recollection is that the OP doesn't want his credit card on file anywhere.

Unless you have an accepted method of payment on "file" you can't have an account. Just close your Lyft account by emailing [email protected].

On my iphone, I press down on the card, then a delete option shows in pinkish
Note: You cannot delete the default payment. First you have to change the default to another card, if you want to delete the current default

Would like to delete my card from uber but can't figure out how to do that. It always defaults to the wrong card so maybe just easier to delete.

This is really bizarre. I have 3 credit cards on file. I set my default payment to Apple Pay. Out of the 3 cards, only 1 has the option to delete! wth! One of my cards I no longer use and want it off the app (for OCD reasons). Dang it Lyft!
Still can't figure it out.

Good luck with trying to contact Lyft support to sort this out.

I had the same issue and after about 5 back/forth messages with their auto response bots, I gave up.

Uber/Lyft support is remarkably useless.

I added yet another card to Lyft and was able to delete my other card I wanted to. Basically, once you have 3 CCs in your account, they want you to have at least 3 CC's in there at all times.
