    Earnings Guarantee promotions

    An Earnings Guarantee is a guarantee that you’ll earn a certain amount for completing a specific number of rides.
    For example:
    • We guarantee that if you give 10 rides in a week, you’ll earn $200.
    • You gave 10 rides and only earned $150.
    • We’ll bonus you an extra $50 so that your total earnings equal $200. If your earnings exceed the guaranteed amount, then you won’t be eligible for a bonus.
    If your earnings exceed the guaranteed amount, then you won’t be eligible for a bonus.
    If you're eligible for an Earnings Guarantee, we'll email you the amount and ride requirements.
