Why did I get a random Lyft 10% off 10 rides?

    I just got an email that I got the above and I am not sure why. I already used a sign up code back in December.

    Of course they expire before I will be back to Vegas and get to use them

    I get them sometimes because I have a 5-star passenger rating.

    I also think I get them when I haven't used the service in a while.

    Both Uber and Lyft send out random offers to riders just like they send out random incentives to drivers. None of us can really figure out any pattern to it.

    I think this is why also. I only used them once in the past 3 months, so I'd be surprised if it's not some retention initiative.
    The email I got yesterday (and it shows in my app) is 50% off all rides until June 12.

    I've received discounts from Uber on two occasions...coincidentally, the offers came prior to trips to LAS.

    So, I'm wondering if they (Uber) somehow track your travel plans by monitoring your airline/hotel search activity...

    I've received the 10% off 10 rides a couple of times recently when I wasn't actively using Lyft. I was finally able to take advantage of it in April/May.

    Thanks everyone. The first time I had seen something like that. Nice they give you a push every so often.

    I had not used Lyft since our trip in February but used them on our trip a couple weeks ago. The day before we left I received 50% off my next two rides. Came in handy for my ride back to the airport.I just received another email offering 50% off all rides until June 12th. Too bad I don't go back to Vegas until October.
