And... I found the way to get promos back on your account.

I figured it had something to do with your activity in the platform, it turned out to be true, weeks of testing led me to this final conclusion.

You need to:

Turn off your app THE ENTIRE TIME, if you depend on lyft only, you are fuxed, you do not even peek to see if the promos are there, your app has to be asleep for up to a week (maybe 2 depending on the trigger).

Once you keep the app asleep without even peeking, Lyft will start sending you messages, through the app or through your email, they will ask you to turn on your app, to come drive for them and enjoy being a millionaire, you IGNORE THAT, when they stop sending you those messages (2-3 days after the barrage of message, the messages have to stop for 2 days straight), you turn on the app and voila! you now have streaks, how long they last? no clue, I don't rideshare anymore but if they get removed, rinse and repeat.

Just as God said don't look in Sodom and Gomorrah's cool story, you too will see the benefits of this or you will look and turn into a salt statue :cry:

Either way it's repeatable if you fail the first time, don't say daddy never gave you anything ;)

If you were a regular user of Lyft and you don’t even open the app for 2-3 weeks they will usually send you lots of streak bonus hours and some ride challenges
Yeah, sorry I didn't mention that, I thought it would be obvious.

You have to be a driver who has driven for them for at least 6 months.
This is so true and I think it also has something to do with good reviews. Like 4.85 or above as driver
That remains to be studied, I have a friend doing it with a 4.7, it will be weeks, when I did it on my account and for some reason I was a 5 star driver 🤣 I remember stopping with a 4.77 rate, I guess they upped my rate to push me to drive again.

IF anyone gets them with a low rate post it here.
I posted this and within 8hrs I'm "Not Approved to Drive" with the estimated completion time of over two weeks for CheckR's background check to be completed. No choice but to look elsewhere.
Ah... Lyft knows who you are maybe.

Seeing is believing.

Anyone who is trying this, let me know, I need data about your attempt.

Thank you for this advice. I have now uninstalled Lyft and will see if it works.
Nonono, LOL.

You don't need to uninstall Lyft else they won't know if you are just not opening their app, the app needs to be installed but must never be opened until the end of the messages, you know you are on your way when you start getting messages from Lyft about going online, after that you wait until they stop sending you messages, once you stop getting messages for 2 days straight, open the app and streaks should be there.
