Lyft promo $4.99 pass for 10 rides $5 discount each

Did anyone else get this promo ?

Can I use the $5 off to give other people a "Lyft" ride on my account
Like sending my friend's home after a party ?
There is no way I can use 10 rides in a month by myself ,
Thanks for your ideas

I was offered and purchased $9.99 for the same $5 off 10 rides. I could not find the eligible ride areas in the FAQ or promos tab before or after purchase, hoping it doesn't exclude to/from airport but it is still a deal as I have a greater than normal number of rides needed in the next month.

$4.99 for the same offer puts you ahead after the second ride, don't necessarily lock yourself into only maximizing the offer.

I only signed up for Lyft because my car was in the shop and I wanted to go to a Flea Market a mile away and did not want to ride my bicycle !
and other than that one round trip which was free anyway , I have not needed to use Lyft.

So I think the algorithms decided they better offer me something worth my while to sign up for !
Will I use it on the next month......ummm probably not....

Can I use my account to have Lyft bring someone over to my house ( they do not drive) ?

Apparently they think that I'm 3x the sucker that you are!

$14.99 per month for 10% off unlimited rides.

Also I have noticed that if my friend and I request the same Lyft ride (sitting beside each other, call for a ride to the same place) he gets offered a price that is $3 lower, every time.

Considering dumping Lyft but there is no real competition. Uber is a total scam...

Considering emailing them to ask about it. If for no other reason, their response should be amusing.

You can definitely order rides for other people. I've done it before.

This is my offer. I wonder if it's because the vast majority of my rides are to/from the airport, as my average ride (after tip) is around $45.

$14.99 is the offer that I currently have. Not biting. My average rides are under $20.

Value all depends on your ride patterns. There is no "good" or "bad" deal in the abstract. Deals are also clearly targeted to spend patterns.

I think Lyft is trying to turn me into a Lyft user !
I only took 2 rides , to the flea market and home a few hours later.
Their idea is throw me a bone , get me as a regular user , and make the money later.

If I was already using Lyft , then the "bone" may only be the 10 percent !

It still is a fact that Uber and Lyft are selling below cost , would anyone pay the real.price or just take a Taxi ?
