Lyft / Uber Master Thread
« on: January 21, 2020, 04:56:20 PM »
There are dozens of threads for deals for lyft/uber but no place that I could find that talks about them in general.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

If they do something extra.

E.g. going to LAX with a friend and put the drop off in as terminal 6 but they went around the full loop to drop me off at terminal 4.

Re. the new CSR benefit of free Lyft Pink with 15% off all Lyft rides, many wondered whether registering for this would affect the promos riders would get (some more often than others) of 40%, 50% etc. off all rides.

I can confirm as someone who used to get those promos all the time from Lyft, that ever since I've registered with the CSR-Lyft Pink I haven't gotten even a single discount promo from them. I have no doubt it is related to Lyft Pink.

Anyone else have experienced the same or otherwise?

Are lyft and uber rides that use toll included in the upfront price?

Have Lyft pink from csr, used the lost and found service and they charge $15, but it's waived for pink. Nice.

Interesting DP.

Sometimes the cost to cancel a Uber after you order it is greater then the cost of the ride.

Its probably also waived from those that chat with them.  :)

They bring the item to your door?

Thatís just sick. It amazes me how little price transparency there is with Uber, and how little oversight there is with all of their shenanigans.

They bring it where is convenient for them, if they don't live near you you'd need to work out something else.

Uber: Your ride is 4 mins away. (That's what it said when booking)

Also Uber: Your driver drove 9 mins already please pay 11.53 to cancel.

I've heard from a driver that they can make more money from a cancellation than a ride sometimes.
Just supporting the point

When ordering a ride in advance, do they send out the ride request at the selected time (as if i'm ordering it then) or does the car come at the selected time?
