Lyft — the ride sharing smartphone app that allows you to request a ride from a friendly stranger with a car, is a growing larger and larger every day. If you’re thinking about getting a Lyft, use a Lyft promo code to get a discount on your first ride. If you’ve already used a promo code, read on to get tips for existing users.
Lyft promo code ‘FREERIDESHARE’ works!
Chances are you reached this article goggling for “Lyft promo code” while you’re waiting for the bartender to run your credit card. If that’s the case, input my working promo code FREERIDESHARE right now and you’ll get free app credits.
But if you’re reading this because you’re not sure what a Lyft promo code is or how it works, read on.
What are Lyft promo codes?
Lyft offers free promo codes, also known as credit codes, to new users that give you free ride credits as an incentive to try the app. Currently, the most common promotional offer that a code will give you is a free ride. Sometimes the offer is for ride credits, which can be used until they run out, and sometimes the offer is for
Do free Lyft credits expire?
Yes. Free Lyft credits expire after 30 days, so if you enter a promo code, remember to use it soon!
Are there promo codes for existing (not new) users?
All Lyft codes are for new users only, Groupons included. These are the three scenarios that will prevent a promo code from working.
- Promo codes won’t work if you’ve already paid for a Lyft
- Promo codes won’t work if you’ve already requested a ride
- Promo codes won’t work if you’ve already used another code
Lyft gives you only one chance to get fee credit from a promo code. If you can’t use a code, have your friend use the code instead, or use the Invite Friends feature and earn free credits for inviting your contacts.
How do you use a Lyft promo code?
To use a promo code code:
- Download the Lyft app
- Follow the on-screen steps to create your account. You can sign up with Facebook or an email address
- Tap the button in the upper-left corner of the app
- Tap “Payments, then enter freerideshare in the “Add credit code” area, and hit “Apply”
I entered a Lyft promo code and it’s not working. Why not?
The app will tell you why your promo code is working. The most common error message: “This code is for new users only.” The second most common one is “This code is invalid.” If you get the new user message, no promo code will work for you because ALL promo codes are for new users only.
If you get the invalid code message, input doug1682 because that code is valid. Super valid. Always valid, eternally-valid.
Is there really a $50 Lyft promo code?
There are some $50 Lyft promo codes out there but almost all of them are expired. Lyft only circulates $50 promo codes for special events, and they usually expire after a few days. Chances are the $50 code you’re seeing was for an event months ago. You’re better sticking with driver codes like my working code “doug1682.”
Why do some coupon sites list $100 promo codes?
Because they’re shady. There’s no such thing as a $100 promo code. Lyft drivers and sketchy coupon sites trick you into using their codes by lying to you. I’m looking at you, retailmenot.com and wanting.com.
Where can you get Lyft promo codes?
When you search for promo codes online. you’ll notice that some of them are a random cluster of numbers, some are a name with some random numbers (like my code doug1682) and some are a word like “LALYFT”.
Random number promo codes and name-based promo codes are the codes issued to Lyft drives. Every Lyft driver is given a promo code and drivers are asked to circulated the codes as a way of promoting Lyft. It’s a smart strategy….I am doing it right now in this article!
