There is no such thing as a promo code for existing Lyft users. It’s a unicorn, a myth. It’s not real. So if you’ve requested a ride, paid for a ride, or used a promo code, you’re no longer eligible to use a promo code. Sad day. Pick yourself up and move on, because existing users can still get a free or cheap Lyft.
Even though there are no Lyft promo codes that will give free ride credits to existing Lyft users, there are still two ways for you to get free ride credits.
1. Use the “Earn Free Rides” feature to invite your friends and get free rides
The only way for existing Lyft users to get a free ride is to use the “Earn Free Rides” or “Earn Cash” app feature to share Lyft with your friends. If they download the app and take a ride, you’ll get one free ride credit. There is no limit to the number of people you can refer, so there’s big potential for you to earn free ride credits. If you need a free ride right this minute, this trick probably won’t work. Since you’ll be needing free Lyfts in the future, plan ahead and start inviting your contacts now.
Here’s the sneaky thing to do: If you know a friend is interested in Lyft, make sure to have them wait to download the app until you can send them an invite. That way you’ll get a piece of that delicious free Lyft credit. There’s no other way for existing users to get free rides.

2. Ask someone in your group to download Lyft and use ‘freerideshare‘
Have your friend request the ride! If someone else in your group hasn’t used Lyft yet, have them download the app, create an account, then input promo FREERIDESHARE and they’ll get a discount on their first ride. Have them request the ride and join in. Bam, free ride.
3. Use Uber instead. My promo code ‘cws7s2‘ works for all new Uber users
If none of the above Lyft tricks work for you, use Uber instead. UberX is the same service as Lyft and it operates in all of the same cities as Lyft — and more. Download Uber and input ‘cws7s2’ before you request your first ride and you’ll get a discount on your first ride. Sorry Lyft, but a free ride is a free ride!
