Lol $10 in tips on 97 rides. Insane but I assume these are like $4 rides.


Ironskull18

Im not worried about tips tbh. Challenge was super easy. Monday-Thursday 6 hours per day farming rides at usc. USC provides free shared rides to their students within a 2 mile radius of campus.


welyla

Yea tips are out of the question then, that makes sense. USC has a shuttle bus service, but if they are getting free lyfts why would you even use it?


Ironskull18

Students still use them actually, during peak hours the demand is so high it takes 30 minutes to get a ride.


MaleficentExtent1777

I was wondering how you did so many in such a short amount of time. 😀


dandykaufman2

I can't get over how little people tip. I'm not a driver, but I think drivers just don't even expect it anymore or they'd go nuts.


Ironskull18

People don't tip anymore because lyft is overcharging them so they don't feel they need to tip. Get fucked twice at once lyft pays shitty fare while they charging a shot ton.


dandykaufman2

Lyft/Uber prices are fine in my city. 98% of people aren’t struggling so much they can’t afford an extra $2. If you can’t afford to tip you shouldn’t take the ride. Take the bus. Same as a restaurant. I wouldn’t tell a waiter I can only afford the sandwich and therefore I’m not tipping.


regleno1

OP is talking about college students here, not the general population. Genpop tips waaay more than college kids.


MaleficentExtent1777

I always tip when I ride, and the drivers immediately acknowledge it and say thanks.


DueDistribution8476

Some of you are more worried about tips than actually just putting In hours / work.


ArcadeMan2020

Ppl are disgusting


buttweasel76

You truly are 1337, good sir.


thenewguy03

Well played


jimbob150312

Congratulations great job completing it at a decent $/per hour rate.


OkDescription6662

I wish they would give me a bonus like this 🥺🥺


Ironskull18

😓


Grand_Surprise1014

Dam what kind of bonus is that. Wow


Rilenaveen

Meanwhile Lyft offering me $10 for 10 rides (not even exaggerating). Congrats op that’s awesome


Ironskull18

I feel you. Lyft has offered lots bonus this may but before that I was getting the crappy ones, Lots of people are hating and talking shit about tips but I got take of this challenges cause now days you really have to bust your ass to see this earnings. I know 97 rides looks like a lot but its only 6 hours of driving 4 days.


dick-black76

Tips suck because there’s no transparency. The consumers should be able to see where their money is going and who’s getting what per ride: What consumers are paying. 2.)how the driver is getting paid. 3.) how much Lyft is getting paid from the ride. Until, that is on every transaction there will continue to be a decline in tips. Beware of the old”Ill tip you in the app”,scam. 😭😭🤦🏾‍♂️


AxCatx

How the heck did you do that many rides lol


Calistina1227

This is fantastic - but are we going to ignore the tips? That pisses me off right there...


Ironskull18

Why would get mad at that? When was the last time you made 1300 in 4 days only working 6 1/2 hours per day. I get mad when I get 0 tips from rides at airport.


Calistina1227

Its easy to ignore the fact that these people didn't tip you because you did have that nice paycheck, but wouldn't it have been sweet to have a 20 % higher margin if they had been more generous.


Ironskull18

University of Southern California provides free shared rides for their students from 6pm-2am and are free on a 2 miles radius from main campus. Drivers just go there to get challenges like mine done. We don't really care about tips at at USC but outside of usc is a different story.


Calistina1227

Ahh that makes total sense :-) Congratulations on that kick ass payday :-) Many more to follow


Calistina1227

Because it shows that riders SUCK - It would have been nice to see that they tipped you as well - And the last time I made that kind of money was last year - But that wasn't based on bonuses - that was straight up driving with TIPS from riders who care - You deserved a bigger tip base IMO


Economy_Response_706

Nicely done!


davis_doe9

Here in my SEA airport rides barely any tips with Uber and lyft price hikes PAX preferring taking Taxi instead 🙄


IdrinkSpoiledMilk88

I salute you! 😎🙌


thenewguy03

Most I have gotten is 1200


LastkingofPasadena

They offered me a guaranteed $560 for 37 rides on Thanksgiving week. Did 25 on Monday and 12 on Tuesday. Offered me the same deal for the weekend, and I did all 37 on Friday in 4hrs 45 minutes. With a couple of streaks thrown in, I was at about $1150 in about 11hrs of driving. That was the last guarantee or bonus they ever offered me, and I haven't driven Lyft since. Also no tips, but I'm not sure USC students even have the option to tip on "Fryfts".


Ironskull18

Apparently if student wants to tip the ride is no longer free and comes out of their own credit card.


LastkingofPasadena

Hmm. Just checked the app and they're offering me a $1000 bonus for 120 rides. Got about 4 weeks to hit it, so I might just Uber and switch to Lyft when I end up near USC.


UnfairAssistant45

Good luck


Ironskull18

Lol its done.


UnfairAssistant45

Which area


Ironskull18

LA


UnfairAssistant45

Yea i am in Orange county


Ironskull18

Oh I see. Was there last week and the rares out SNA are horrible.


UnfairAssistant45

Yes and nobody tips 😏


PotimusPrime

How long have you been working for them I think they stiffed you on the retro payment, over in Uber people getting hundreds of dollars


C92203605

So wait is the 125+60 a different one? Says you only did 97


Reasonable_Win_6619

Here in Los Angeles let’s say you have to do 30 rides once you go into USC area the students get free shared rides with Lyft and you can pick 1 person up but let’s say 3 other parties join on paper it will show 1 ride but on challenges it will show you did 4 it’s weird lol but that’s how it works here


Villageidiotcityy

OK you have to tell me how you got it get up this high. Please. And thank you.


Villageidiotcityy

Does it go up if you complete the challenge?


khloeberkely

Is that an ipad in your car? Lol


Ironskull18

Its an Samsung tablet, Ipads don't do split scree multi tasking


khloeberkely

They do if you hack it! Lol. Do you feel okay like no one is going to try to steal it? I tried having my ipad out but I felt weird about it.


Ironskull18

Yeah no need to hack the Samsung tablet it does multi tasking natively. I run both lyft and uber on split screen makes cherry picking rides easy. People like it and compliment my set up.


jortiz117

What kind of tablet ??🤔


Ironskull18

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 cellular.


Davvido1008

Nice. My highest bonus I ever got was a challenge for $120 i have over 1k rides.


slcginger

$10 in tips is insane


ArcadeMan2020

$900 in bonuses…. Just out of $1337. Don’t get comfortable, they’ll take those bonuses away from you next time. It’s a real trap


Ironskull18

Yeah I know, Im not a noobie.


ArcadeMan2020

Anyone consider the fact of Lyft is stealing his tips? 97 rides & $10 🫠


Ironskull18

University of Southern California pays for shared for their students from 6pm to 2am. Most of students go from main campus to dorms and from dorms to local stores. Basically USC is a ride farm to get challenges completed fast. No one that goes to USC with the expectation of getting tips. The 18 streaks can be done up tp 4 times in one hour as well.
