Oh I had a pax recently who met Mr. $2000 a week. Except he's apparently working in the IE. :/Pax are telling me, "I met this Uber driver who said he makes $2k a week on UberX, if that's true, I'm thinking of sign up."
I don't know if he was kidding or not, but whoever is boasting their earnings to pax, just know you're doing exactly what Uber's marketing team wants you to do. That $500 refer all bonus seems awful enticing when you have someone eager to try Ubering. All you're doing is creating more competion for yourself.
$0.95 a mile, infrequent surges and he's pulling in 2k a week. Cough b*llsh*t cough
