The way the surges were happening I can believe it. Spent most of my time on Lyft working towards the $750 bonus. For the weekend 40 Lyft rides and 3 Uber rides. 2 of the 3 rides were surge rides. After Ubers cut I got $38.45 + $8 tip. Spent about 1hr 15 min on Uber app. Last ride I seen the surge numbers ending so switch right back over to Lyft. Seen a 200% Lyft area but was to far away and most of pings were 25% to 50% areas. Still nice money overall.I don't know why all the complaining. Saturday was the best I've had since sxsw. Cleared $340 in 12 hours on Uber x
Once UT football ends I figure we will go back down to the normal $150-$200 weekend numbers.
