Lyft-Thumb

Why hail a cab when you can just use your phone? No, I don't mean placing a call. With apps like Lyft and Uber, getting a ride, paying the driver, and ending up where you want to go continues to get easier and more affordable. But the trend, though growing, is still relatively new. That makes this Lyft offer just the ticket for newbies hesitant to give Lyft a go. If you go to the Payment area under settings and enter the promo code SLICKDEALS, you can have one free ride worth up to $50.

This deal only works for new users, those who have both never taken a ride and never redeemed a code before. It will last from now until the end of the year.

    Shame it seems to require linking to a Facebook account...oh, and not available in the NY area yet

    • Abby

      aaaaaaand I just deleted the app. I can't stand it when services require FB. I don't have a FB, don't want a FB and shouldn't need a FB.

      • Satan’s Taint

        Yeah, because making a dummy account would be too difficult for things that use a FB log in. *eyeroll*

          Thats what my father in law did so he could save his progress in Candy Crush. He even gave himself a funny name thats a pun in spanish.

    How do you get back to your previous destination? haha

    I mean, this is cool and all but..it's one ride. It doesn't specify if it's the full Point A to Point B then Point B to Point A or just Point A to Point B. :P

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Just point A to point B. A ride is a ride. Think of it as a taxi. Well, unless you hold the driver and have him/her drive you back, then it could be one ride.

      Still, a $50 value is a $50 value, much more than you get via the usual referral codes.

      • http://nopenopenope.nope Ryuuie

        I know of only maybe 2 drivers here that would do that. :/ Isn't really worth it for me then...though, if I go to the airport again, I could probably do it then. I'll bookmark this page since it's until the end of the year.

        Thanks!

    This is a pretty good deal. If you haven't tried Lyft yet, and it's available, this is the deal to sign up with. Once you Lyft/Uber, you don't go back to taxis.

    Seeing who your driver is, when he's coming, where he is, what kind of car he drives, what rating other passengers gave him or her, not having to care about paying - just jump out of the car and go - these experiences are so much better than using a taxi, it's simply impossible to go back.

  • Eloy Antunez

    Deleted this crap. Why is it trying to charge $25.00 when I sign up? BS!

    • Brandoshus

      The $25 initial charge is just a preauthorization. The amount may show pending in your account but it will never close and will be removed in a few days. It's like the $125.00 gasoline preauthorizations.

  • Cesar

    I might have to give this a shot next time I go out and need a ride home. Seems better than calling a cab, at least.

    Just installed so I can take advantage of the free credit due to a trip I'm taking to PHX next week. When I installed the Lyft app, It also shows that I have 50 [yes FIFTY!] FREE Lyft rides up to $25/EACH, for use between now and May 4 for use in my hometown. (That'll help with my birthday!!!) I'm *really* feeling a late night trip for BBQ & Suds.

    Lyft may just have a new long term customer!

  • Andrew

    Sweet, Hope I get my Google I/O tix so I can use this in San Fran when I go.

    I've tried them many times already, and they're always reliable. It's so much better a cab, especially if you don't have cash need to break a $20 when the ride is much less. Be sure to enter the promo code for the credit so your card doesn't get charged.
