Why does uber never give me rider pass discount?

Capital One finesse
Apr 12, 2018 18 Comments

I have a passenger rating of 4.7 which is ok but that's the only variable I can think of. Everyone I know gets discounts and some don't use lyft either. They sent me a discount back and it was for my previous city. Should I just delete the account and start over new?

    Maybe depends on how often you ride? I get either 50% off for a week or $4 off each ride for a week. Week after week. I don’t know if they still have the VIP program but perhaps when you reach a certain number of rides, that increases frequency of discounts you get.

      Can’t seem to find an answer yet but one site I found (thepointsguy - quite reliable I think) notes if you’re an on-time passenger that affects whether you get promotion emails.

    Their model assumes you are loyal. Use Lyft more or avoid using Uber for a while.

    The shitty part of the ML world is that most models (unless explicitly guided) will treat the most loyal customers the worst.

    You probably ride too much. They gave me it a couple times, then I saved hundreds of dollars and never again.

      Boyfriend was using it to commute to work instead of bus that month. Was unlimited rides for $5 (max of twenty discount). Uber to his work normally 23-27. We spent about 80 more than a bus pass but way less time on the bus, and only about 40 more than paying the toll on our own.

      Pass fare discount just on that was like 700, plus we used it a bunch for going out.

      I think that was one of their first experiments and they gave up on it haha.

      My rating is 4.89

    Depends on the amount of rides, and on where do you go.
