Did you know that you can earn points and miles every time use the ridesharing service Lyft?
It couldn’t be easier to be on your way towards free travel. We will show you how.
Today we’ll focus on three options to earn points and miles with Lyft (not a Lyft rider? Consider making the switch!).
Pick one of the following and link your accounts today!
1. Sign up for Lyft (U.S. only)
If you don’t already have a Lyft account, you can sign up for one here. You’ll get up to $5 in ride credit if you download the Lyft app using my referral. (I’ll get credit, too.) Here’s my link: https://www.lyft.com/iei/KATHY12247
2. Airline or hotel?
Decide whether you want to have points credited to an airline or a hotel account. There are currently three options: Delta Skymiles, Jet Blue TrueBlue, and Hilton Honors.
A. Delta Skymiles
Going the airline route? If you don’t have a Delta Skymiles account, you can sign up for one here.
Once you have an account, go to https://www.deltalyft.com to link your Skymiles and Lyft accounts, and you’ll earn miles with every ride.
As we discussed here, Delta miles do not ever expire. So even if you are not a particularly frequent Delta flyer, time is on your side. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to accumulate miles for free award travel.
B. Jet Blue TrueBlue
You can sign up for a Jet Blue TrueBlue account here. Then go to https://www.lyft.com/jetblue/first and link your Lyft and TrueBlue accounts. You’ll earn 750 TrueBlue points after taking your first Lyft ride. If you are already a Lyft user, you won’t get that initial bonus, but you can still earn 30 TrueBlue points for airport rides.
C. Hilton Honors
Hotel points more your style? Just yesterday Hilton announced that you can now earn Hilton Honors points when you ride with Lyft. If you don’t have a Hilton Honors account, you can sign up for one here.
Then, go to HiltonHonorsLyft.com to link you Hilton Honors and Lyft accounts and, you guessed it, you’ll earn miles with every ride.
While I have not been able to find anything in writing, I do not believe you can sign up for more than one deal. So, pick the one you prefer and with a few simple click you’ll be earning miles or points.
3. Wash, rinse, repeat
Does anyone else in your family use ridesharing? Have them do this as well so you aren’t leaving any points on the table.
See how easy that was? With a few simple clicks you will be earning extra miles or points every time you ride Lyft.
