Just got the weekly newsletter. Wondering if people get different opt-in guarantee numbers for their e-mails.

I got Saturdays $21-25 10pm-3am.

Yeah, last week it was Fri/Sat, now it's just Sat.

Surge hasn't hit much the past couple of Fridays. Wondering if that's why they took off the guarantee for it...

That's one of the few times they haven't had Friday guarantees.

I don't think I can drive any lower...fearing a MSP rate cut right now after Texas and Georgia

I hear you. I guess their goal is minimum wage drivers. What a joke. 18 an hour is pretty close to min wage, right? $14.4 - gas, depreciation and insurance...might be lower than min wage.

I think they stop it when most people get paid instead of beating it

Oh well, just means that I can be a bit more choosey over the rides during surge and not worry about acceptance rate during guarantees

That's your choice, but I don't think it's wise to wait around for surge pings. You could be passing up a good fare and not even get a surge ride. They tend to disappear very quickly due to so many drivers chasing and riders learning that if they wait, normal rates will return shortly.

So...this was the first "opt-in" Saturday night where I didn't make more than the guarantee. It seemed like there was a thousand cars on the rode. Did anybody else have this problem?

Yeah, i had the same issue on Friday/Saturdays. Too many cars wherever I went. I'm just glad I was under the guarantee.
