Sender: When you choose to send a digital gift card to someone’s email address, we’ll email them a link that lets them apply the gift card to their account automatically. This email will also have a 16-digit gift card code, which they can enter in their Lyft app.
Recipient: If you have a retailer gift card or a digital gift card code, you can add it to your Lyft Cash balance by following these steps:
Tap the menu icon in the top left corner.
Tap the Gift card icon.*
Enter the gift card code and PIN.
*If you don’t see the gift card icon, tap ‘Payment’ in the menu, then tap the Gift card icon.
Your gift card balance will show up under your Lyft Cash.
If you have a gift card and promo codes, you can select which combo you want to use before a ride, or up to 24 hours after a ride in the ‘Rate & Pay’ screen.
A default payment method in the Lyft app is required, even when you’re using a gift card. Your default card will be charged for any tips, some fees, or any ride where the cost is more than your gift card balance.
