    Going to Vegas in 2 weeks+. Will be both new users of Lyft/Uber. Trying to figure out the best way of using free ride bonus for new customers. We live near Tampa. Can 2 people in same household get the bonuses?
    Was going to sign me up in Tampa for 1 or both. Then sign wife for new user in Vegas using me as referral. She gets free ride, I get free ride for referral. Do for both Uber/Lyft. If this is correct it would be 6 rides altogether. Enough for both coming and going from both airports and 2 more for use in Vegas.
    Does it matter where you physically sign up? Suggestions? I know some have gotten 10/$10 rides when signing up in Vegas.

    I have read that also, but not found where it's stated online. Personally, I'm going to sign up for Lyft as soon as my plane lands in Vegas in hopes I get that ten $10 ride deal. Worst case scenario, I only get the first time $20 and will use it until it's gone.

    And I don't believe you will have a problem if you and your wife sign up separately. As long as you both don't use the same name and credit card to sign up, I would think you should be good. Just make sure you are signed up for Lyft in Vegas is you are wanting a ride FROM/TO the airport as Uber isn't allowed to go there yet.

    Yep. using Uber to airport in Tampa. Then signing up with lyft when plane lands and waiting for bags. Hoping one of us gets the 10/$10 deal. but 2 $20's will be OK. Also on the $20. It is only good for 1 ride. If cost is less than $20 you don't keep the difference for another ride.

    I signed up for Lyft and downloaded the app at home. When I got to Vegas I had 4 coupons for $10 off each ride.
