I'm guessing no one knows yet. I just checked and don't see anything. Most likely will appear (or not) tomorrow.

I may have screwed myself last night. After getting my number, I was trying to hide out (or at least get fewer, and shorter trips) in Hazlet so I would be closer to home when I decided to call it a night. Got pinged in the non-Shore area of Keyport (to a wedding). With that call, I was still at 70% shore rides, but I got another in Old Bridge as I was dropping them off. Turned the app off, headed back to "the shore" area to try to get back over 70% and got one last call. Was mad that it was in Matawan, but thinking I was screwed out of guarantee I took it. May have gotten lucky, as the fare seemed WAY too high for normal NJ rate. Looked at the map in the trip history, and I think I was in a part of Matawan that was just barely inside the Parkway. No clue if last night is gonna work out. If not, I lose about $60 extra from the guarantee. We shall see...

But, lesson learned. Stay buried deep in the shore until I'm ready to go home! No one to blame but myself if I don't get last nights extra $$$.

Due to app issues I was screwed ... Did 20 trips ... All shore .. But there was some kind of network overload where it took too long for uber to process a trip acceptance and I got an error that it was expired .. Happened 6 times

Contact Uber and let them know what happened. What do you got to lose?

Have the guarantees been posted yet?

Did you look at your acceptance rate on your pay statement? If you're above 90, you're fine.

Whew, got lucky that my last Matawan trip was on the shore side of the Parkway, by a hair, which put me back over 70% of rides in the "shore" zone. Guarantee earned for Sunday (and Friday, which I expected).

Mine came in. Website doesn't list the pay statement yet. App shows it though.

I got $35 more than I expected on the guarantee. I didn't get screwed out of any of the money. No problems with cancellations. Acceptance rate wasn't an issue because I accepted everything they threw at me but canceled a few that stunk.

The guarantee wasn't great for me. I've made more on regular Friday/Saturday nights (shoot, even last Sunday I made $300) without a guarantee.

But, since the guarantee was here, and it was reasonable, I decided to give working it a shot while trying to drive as few miles as possible. Worked out ok. I gambled on previous guarantees and tried to make more than the guaranteed rate... I think I succeeded but it required a heck of a lot more work. Figured why bother trying to beat it since drivers would be carpeting the shore.

^^^this to a T. I made exactly what I expected to in gaurantees. I know I could have beaten the gaurantee, but the work required just didn't seem appealing when I knew I could sit around and collect 32/hr. I recommend Marco Polo for those of you with netflix......

Got my guarantee. I made in the neighborhood of what I was expecting. I know I was offline a bit and I was doing a bit of hiding out, so I'm happy with what I got for the weekend.

I count 8 Pool out of 41 total rides for guarantee days. That's 19.5%. Better than I expected. Seems people have mostly figured out what it is and stopped trying to request it when they have too many riders, self respect, or are in a hurry.
Out of my pool rides, several of them were in very very wealthy areas. I know the rich stay rich by not spending foolishly, but have some respect for yourself.
