How it works

Multi-tier bonuses will vary depending on ride requirements and bonus payout by tier.
To earn one or more of the bonus tiers, follow these steps:
  1. Complete the specified number of rides before the end date.
  2. When you complete the ride requirement for each tier, you’ll see the bonus in your earnings.
  3. Earn more by hitting the ride requirement for the next tier within the time frame provided.
Before you begin
You'll need to enter a valid new driver promotion code in the 'Promo/Referral' code space when you start your application. It must be entered at the time of your application.
  • If you use a new driver promo link from Facebook, Craigslist, or Google, the code should be automatically entered for you.
  • If you don't enter a code when you start your application, you won't be eligible for the new driver promotion. The code cannot be added after signup.

Multi-tier bonus example

Here is an example of a multi-tier bonus for new drivers:
Example: Multi-tier bonus up to $900
  • Give a total of 10 rides for an extra $50.
  • Give a total of 40 rides for an extra $100 bonus ($150 total).
  • Give a total of 100 rides for an extra $250 bonus ($400 total).
  • Give a total of 200 rides for an extra $500 bonus ($900 total).
For example, if you complete 10 rides, then you will receive a $50 bonus and unlock the next tier. After you complete 40 rides, you will receive an additional $100 bonus.
That will be a total bonus of $150, and you will unlock your next tier.

Getting the Express Drive EV multi-tier bonus

If you’re eligible for the Express Drive Multi-Tier Bonus, you'll see the details when you open your Driver app. This promo is currently offered to California Express Drive renters only.
As you hit your ride goals, you can earn 3 different bonus tier amounts. If you complete rides for the 1st tier, you’ll see the bonus on your next weekly earnings summary. Complete the 2nd and 3rd tiers, and Lyft will add each tier bonus to your earnings. You can complete just one tier, two tiers, or all three tiers and still receive a bonus.
Eligible hours for earnings begin on Monday at 5 AM and end the following Monday at 4:59 AM. If you start your rental on a Tuesday-Friday, the ride count and bonus will be distributed depending on your active days.
Ride count and bonuses will reset every Monday at 5 AM.

Once you complete rides for the first tier, the circle will fill, and you will move to the next tier. Lyft will add any bonuses earned to your earnings on your next weekly summary.
