Curious how drivers are making money while driving. I've seen some drivers hand out coupons for friends' restaurants or activities, but nothing more organized. What about something similar to the hotel/motel pamphlet giveaway boards for tourist activities? What a digital display with ads?

For some extra money, would you put this in your car? How much would you need? Does this violate any terms of service for Uber or Lyft?

Interested to hear your thoughts

A thread title of "Ways to make money while driving" posted on an Uber drivers forum is like a menu item at McDonalds saying "healthy". By the way, gotta luv that tag of "sidehussle".

We're talking legal ways, right? So nothing to do with drugs, guns, girls, porn, or gambling. ;) What states would allow real video poker on back-seat tablets? How big a cut could the driver receive? What about states with legalized subscription porn sites? Isn't selling pot legal in like Colorado?

Doesn't amount to a lot but a bar I frequent for dinner gave me some flyers with a coupon for 20% off and he discounts my bill substantially in exchange for passing them out to passengers being dropped off in the area (next to our concert and hockey arena and ball park) and recommending the place

Do you live near a really upclass, rich town? Rich people throw the damnest things out on the curb. Oil paintings, foosball tables, old clocks, antiques, etc. I make almost 100 extra a week throwing stuff like that in my trunk and reselling. Sometimes I have something big and have to deadhead back home, but I'm always shocked by the valuables these people toss on the curb.

I sell Bloody Mary's and Ativan on Saturday and Sunday mornings to hung over kids either a) trying to figure out where they left their car last night (guys) or, b) woke up and don't know where they are or how they gunna get home (girls).
I get $10 for one dose. My cost is under $1. Sells like hotcakes.
Mix up the Mary's in gallon milk jugs and I'm usually run out by 11am. Separate small ice chest with clean ice, and red beer cups. I'll clear $300 a day. Great margin.
