Lyft Direct Card

Honestly, I love this card. Forever I had my pay outs go to an external bank and I did it the old way with weekly payments cause I liked that then gas started rising and I thought about getting the Lyft direct card cause it’s garuntee 7% cash back on gas but a different deal thru an app called gridwise at the time helped me to save up to over 60cents for every gallon which was better at the time then that deal with gridwise ended and I scrambled to find a way to still save gas and I remembered the Lyft Direct card and so I ordered it the rest is history. I save money on gas not just gas but everything inside the gas station too is 7-8% cash back so I save a literal boat load of money then you get 4% cash back at a whole bunch of restaurants near you AND 1% on your bills, phone, internet, etc. to top it all off there’s also usually some typa deals too you can find in the app to further get cash back options when you go shopping or to eat that are bigger then just the % guarantee they give and I forgot to mention the biggest thing you obviously get paid after EVERY single ride without having to pay Lyft anything to instantly get your hard earned cash EVERY ride EVERY dollar! Also it has tools to help you manage your money whether it’s for saving or your cash back! 5 stars for now will edit if anything happens!

Lyft Direct Card

Love the idea behind the Lyft Direct Card. My personal opinion. Easy to access and love that the app keeps track of the fuel expenses when using a fuel station they recommend. Also reimburses a certain amount fuel expenses per gallon with in a few days back onto your Lyft Direct Card. The Direct App also has a variety of discounted fuel stations to choose from based of your location, lots of discounts to restaurants, automotive needs etc. May not seem like much at first. but it all adds up over a period of time. My personal opinion, I am very impressed with how Lyft over all is doing it’s part as an employer with keeping up with innovative ways to not just make it easier and safer for its clients. Also the creativity and effort towards driver retention. They work to help Lyft drivers maximize earnings potential by providing an easy to use Lyft Direct App. That helps Lyft Drivers save money, tutorials to what you need to know… My favorite,they make it i easy for Lyft Drivers to have access to what your earning instantly. I’m a business major, so I have an appreciation when I come across a business/employer doing its part to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Job well done!

Gas card done right

Living as a paycheck-to-paycheck millennial has taught me the art of balancing frugality and practicality; I think the Lyft Direct card and app strikes a good balance. The ability to cash in your earning instantaneously without having to pay money to get your money shows a certain level of respect to us riders I really appreciate, and on top of that, we get the highest cash back rewards from fueling up. This is why I made this my official gas card, filling it up with earnings from Monday through part of Tuesday with enough gas to last me at least the week. The rest, I leave alone to collect and cash in automatically every Tuesday night as a direct deposit into my Chime account. Yes, I’m a proponent for taking advantage of multiple benefits from multiple companies looking out for the little guy; these days, you really do have to consider carefully where your loyalties should lie.

Generally speaking, I think Lyft as a whole has made tangible efforts to show they care about their riders. Not perfect by any means, but better than not most certainly.
