Did you know that Lyft has gift cards available for purchase? You can purchase them directly through the Lyft website, and you can use a debit card, credit card, or PayPal account to make things easy! To purchase the gift card, you will need to have a Lyft account and gift cards purchased through the Lyft website are solely digital. You can purchase gift cards on Lyft.com in amounts up to $250. If you want to give a physical gift card, you can find those through Amazon however, they can be purchased in amounts up to $50. You can also find physical gift cards at Kroger, Office Depot, or Safeway in amounts up to $250. Another benefit to purchasing from Amazon or one of the previously mentioned brick and mortar stores is you do not need a Lyft account to do so.
Redeeming Lyft gift cards is also a simple process. To redeem a physical gift card, you need to locate the 16 digit code on the back of the card. Open your Lyft app and tap your picture in the top left corner of the app. Click on the “promos” tab. Enter the 16 digit code from the back of the card into the box that says “Enter Promo Code.” Then, click “Apply.” Congrats, you have redeemed your gift card!
If you have a digital gift card, the process is very similar. If you received a digital gift card, you also received an email. Have that email on hand. Open the Lyft app and tap on your picture in the top left corner. Click on the “promos” tab. In the “Enter Promo Code” box, type in the code you received in the email. Then, hit “Apply.” You’re all set!
One of the great things about Lyft gift cards is that they do not expire. They can also be used for as many rides as the amount covers. They are truly a great gift for anyone of any age.
