The Lyft on-demand ride sharing service is currently offering $50 in free ride credits to new users ($5 each off first 10 rides), and you can earn extra $20 referral credits when you refer new users who take their first ride with Lyft.
Please note that the Lyft Refer-A-Friend Program currently offers $20 in free ride credits to both parties (or a different amount based on your local market), but there is a $50 ride credit available to new Lyft users outside of their referral program, which is a better deal to use at this time if you are new to Lyft.
$50 Free Lyft Rides Promotion
Just Download the Lyft App and enter Lyft Promo code “HEYLYFT50” to get up to $50 off your first 10 Lyft rides.
You’ll get a $5 discount off each of your first 10 rides for up to $50 in total.
You must be new to Lyft in order to qualify for this offer, and the free ride credits are only valid until 15 days after you activate your Lyft account.
The Lyft discount code “HEYLYFT50” is being advertised in online-only commercials for select streaming services, and it should be available to new users nationwide in the U.S.A. for the full amount of $50.
$20 Credit for New Lyft Users
New riders can sign up via this $20 Lyft Free Ride Promotion to get $20 in free Lyft credit toward your first rides.
You will receive $5 each off your first 4 Lyft rides for up to a total of $20.
You must be a new Lyft user who has never downloaded the Lyft app, and this offer is valid until 15 days after activation.
You cannot combine a Lyft referral offer with the above $50 offer, so you can only use one or the other when you join Lyft.
In addition, the amount of the referral offer may vary based on your geographical location, so while the offer may be for $20 in free Lyft credits toward your first rides in Milwaukee, users in Chicago or other cities may receive a different offer for more or less ride credits.
To get the $20 credit as a new Lyft user, you must sign up for your Lyft account through this Lyft $20 Referral Link or enter the Referral Code JOHN21298 during sign-up or in the “Promos” section under the Menu in the app.
You should see the free $20 in ride credits show up under the Promos tab automatically in the Lyft app.
The $5 credits will automatically be applied toward the price of each of your first 4 rides before your credit card is charged.

Lyft Give A Ride, Get A Ride Referral Program
Current Lyft users can get a $20 credit for each new user that you refer who tries their first free ride with Lyft.
Plus, the new Lyft users that you refer will also get $20 in bonus credits toward their first rides, so everybody wins.
Upon the referred new Lyft user completing their first free ride, you will be credited with $20 toward your next ride.
You can earn a maximum total of $2,000 per week in referral credits for referring new Lyft users.
You will receive your referral link or referral code to invite your friends via email and on your Lyft ride receipts.
You can also use the Lyft app to refer people to Lyft under the Invite Friends tab.
Check out the Lyft Invite Terms for the full details of this program.
Using Your Referral Credits on Lyft
The Lyft credits are good for free rides for up to the total amount of referral credits that you have earned.
So if you have $20 in referral credits and you take a $20 ride, it will be free, but if you take a $30 ride, you will have to pay $10.
Lyft credits are automatically applied before the card on file is charged.
You’ll be able to see if you have free referral credit rides available under the Promos tab.
