What if I already have an Lyft account?

If you’ve already signed up for and used Lyft in the past, then this deal will not work for you. One thing you can do to get discounted future rides is to invite your family and friends who have yet to use Lyft. Just have them sign up for a new account and enter your personal promo code (found by clicking on the gift icon on the top right hand corner of your app) and they will be able to take advantage of the Lyft new user promo discount. You will also receive a credit for referring them to Lyft.

Where do I enter the Lyft Coupon Code?

  1. Open your Lyft app and click on the menu in the top left hand corner.
  2. Click on Promos
  3. Enter Promo Code: LYFTPTM and click Apply

How do I apply my Free Ride Credit to my first Lyft Ride?

No need to worry. Your free Lyft ride credit is automatically applied to your first ride whether you like it or not so be sure to make it a worthwhile one, not just a quick ride 2 blocks down the road.

Is Lyft available outside of the United States of America?

Unfortunately, Lyft is only available in the United States at this time. If you’re interested in an alternative service to use when traveling abroad, I highly recommend that you use Uber. You can use my Uber Promo Code to get your first ride free.

Do Lyft Coupon Codes have an expiration date?

Yes. Some expire within 14 days while others are valid for 30 days. Use them up quick before they expire!

Can I earn more Lyft Credits?

Yes, although you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for special Lyft free ride promotions via FB, Twitter and Instagram.

How can I earn more free Lyft rides?

Are you currently traveling with friends and family who have never used Lyft? If so, all you need to do to get more discounted and/or free Lyft rides is to have one of your friends (for example sake lets call him Friend #1) in the group signup and use your Lyft invite code.

  • Your first ride with Friend #1 is free thanks to you.
  • Now have Friend #2 signup for an account using Friend #1’s code or your code. Again, another free ride.
  • And the list goes on. Realistically if you plan it right, you can continue to get free ride after free ride with Lyft.
  • Tip: Don’t forget to share your Lyft invite code with everyone you know. The more referral signups you get equals more free credit for you!

Note: Remember that you will not receive your free Lyft ride until the person you referred completes their first ride.

Note: I receive free ride for referring new users to Lyft (like yourself) but only after you complete your first ride. At the end of the day, you get free ride credits from Lyft and I get a free ride for referring you — it’s a win-win for everyone!
