Would still be super expensive if the experiment fails.

I'm currently waiting to board flight back to LGA but everything is delayed tonight because of "weather". Had a good day at the tables today and need to get back to the family so I am willing to "roll the dice" on the NJ experiment. Going to speak to the driver and see what he thinks will happen. Was thinking about having him "drop off" package in the Heights in order to minimize cost risk. As long as he doesn't mark the stop over I would think it should work ok no?

Any alternative suggestions?

Sadly was not successful. The driver said they see a "stopover" in NJ they will most likely not reimburse you since they will count that as a destination and then will combine the NJ-NYC leg as a new ride. He advised me not to try it out and so I did not proceed to NJ.
Very possible my Egyptian driver was just spooked by the fact I requested he take a "package" somewhere in NYC while I was not in the vehicle....I have forgotten for a moment what kind of unfortunate world we are in these days. I must admit, when repeating the request back in my head I would think twice as well.

Sorry for the failed attempt... Will try again in three weeks.

Yup, all free rides earn points.

So, how strict are they with the "boarding pass for arriving flight."?
I'm arriving into LGA on Thurs after 8 pm so they'll be closed. Would I be able to pick up a code on my way out of town on Tues?

Yes. But if each one comes with 2 rides and you get a new card each time you go in...

I'm not 100% sure you can get a new card each time.  The first time I got a card, they were keeping a log on paper.  The second time, I think she made an entry on the computer.  I'll be arriving there tomorrow morning.  I'll try again but I'm almost certain that she'll see the entry in the computer and wont give me another.  We'll see...

Right, the first week was all on paper.  Let's see if we can get another one now that it's being logged int he computer (I think).

Just got my third code. She recognized me and told me it wouldn't work if I gave it to someone but I don't believe her.

Question for you guys. ..  I'm on my flight into LGA and will be spending the day in NY returning out of LGA tonight. I plan on using this to get to Brooklyn.

For the return to the airport tonight do you think it will work if i request a pickup from LGA, then call the driver and tell him to start the ride and meet me in Brooklyn, then return back to LGA? The ride will be originating in LGA and end within 5 boros so i assume it'll work.

Anyone with experience?

Thanks
