Do you get ride credits?
Uber people, do you get Uber eats discounts?

I get a company car every now and then plus an employee lease programs with new purchase discounts.

    30% discount off rides. Eats too I believe but I haven’t confirmed it’s 30%.

    I use both regularly. It’s awesome.

      The uber credits for folks joining after Jan 2016 are shit compared to OG monthly credits

      Do OGs still get old credits? I believe these were all in contracts.

      They were and not everyone had them. When I found that out it was super awkward and I thought it was very f’d up. Glad we can all share these now.

    Lyft gets $200 in ride credits/month. You get taxed on any credits you use, which gets deducted from your paycheck.

      They’re actually added to your biweekly paycheck, which can put you in a different tax bracket week-to-week, depending on how much you use. This is why your take home can be smaller than when you don’t use credits.

      khxl17, it’s not the same as what the OP said, because they implied a deduction. It’s actually an additional income.

      When I said deducted, I meant that you pay for the taxes of the credits you use and that amount is taken out of your paycheck (deducted, subtracted, removed, etc). The amount of your net paycheck will vary depending on how many credits you use per pay period. I never implied that it was a tax “deduction”.

    • It is not deducted from your paycheck. When you file taxes at the end of the year it will be additional taxable income and increase your tax liability. If you were going to get a refund you will get a smaller refund.

      Edit: at least I think that's how it works, it just occurred to me that I've never actually looked at my pay statement 😂

      Does lyft sf get breakfast everyday?
      Aug 13, 2018
    • Lyft community
      There's cereal,fruit, packaged toast/bagels everyday. On Wednesdays there are fresh bagels from a deli.
      Aug 14, 2018
    • Are the $130 commuter benefits straight up paid out or is that the whole pretax thru wageworks account?

      Also, does Lyft SF have a gym on campus or any gym reimbursement?

      Asking as I’ll be joining Lyft in the near future :)

      OP
      The lease program has better conditions (no long term commitments) and significant discount. Cannot share the exact number here though
