Existing Rider Discount

Unfortunately, discounts for existing Lyft riders are hard to find. Below are a few tips on finding coupons for existing riders.

1. Refer a new rider

  • You earn free rides when you refer friends or family members to use Lyft. Go to the “Free Rides” section in your Lyft app to find your referral code. Ask your friends and family to apply your referral when they create a new Lyft account.

2. If you’re attending a special event, visit the event or venue’s website for special offers.
