I think Uber will keep this bonus for awhile. Now, you don't have to opt-in every week, you're automatically opted-in.

Another nice thing is that now, Uber driver dashboard shows acceptance rate and cancellations.

yeah but they are kinda loosing money from a driver who reaches any of the bonus offer level. the uber fee for the driver + the uber fee for the pax is less then the bonus.

Hey guys, I believe it will be with us throughout labor day. I hope it stays forever, but I expect when the students return, things will balance out nicely for us to return to our normal $25 to $35/hour. Keep our fingers crossed anyways.

With this bonus, Uber can keep drivers away from Lyft and make drivers to accept more pools. And, Uber can get those bonus money back and more with matched pool rides.

With matched pool rides, Uber can make more than 20% or 25% of fares.

Now, Lyft comes out new bonus like Uber:

I completely agree that uber is making more on pool than the 20,25%. Somehow, someway, believe that uber is not losing any cookies, anywhere.

They will keep it until you start achieving the threshold on a regular basis. I completed at least 30 trips 2 out of the past 3 weeks and received the $100 guarantee each time...... but I didn't receive the offer this week. Are they still doing the up to $550 offer for this week ending on July 24th? I'm kind of curious because I won't drive without some type of bonus or guarantee in place. I can't count on surge pricing to be there so there has to be something else to sweeten the pot....how do you guys feel about that?

I dont know lol... I have nailed their bonus consecutively for 6th week now, and I am planning to nail the bonus this week too. I have been maintaining a good rating as well as 50+ ride count. Maybe that make a difference between who get it or who dont.

surge is dead because the algo got smarter...

I got it and Uber been daily texting me to remind me of the offer since I haven't driven since Monday night. Hopefully I make the 30 rides tonight and Saturday as I hate working Sunday am.
