As a rideshare driver have you been tipped by a rider with something other than cash?

I recently read something where a driver was given a bottle of wine, perfume, and a sandwhich. While driving last night (bar pick ups) I got a ping for Uber XL with a 3.75 surge (i know big bucks). Got a call from rider asking if I could fit 5 people? He wasnt sure if he ordered XL. I picked them up (5 passengers). The 3 young men were good 2 young ladies a little drunk but ok. One sat up front and asked if we could stop at gas station. The girl in the back then puts 15.00 on my consol and says we live 4 blocks from destination in app. After you drop off our friend can you take us? I said yes they were my last ride & little did she know I would've done it for nothing. However it was nice that she gave me the money. We get to a 7 11 and they asked what I wanted. I said i didnt need anything but thank you. So the guy tells them to get me cigarettes but the girl keeps asking what kind of chocolate I want. I kept trying to tell them I didnt need anything. She comes out and we pull off. She hands me a snickers and a hershey bar. Her boyfriend yells " i told you to get her cigs she didnt want choc". Drop off 1st person then drive 4 blocks (yes it really was 4 blocks) as they get out she hands me 5 cigs and apologizes for not getting me a pack. lol   Ended up with 15.00 for a 4 mile 12 min trip, 15.00 in cash (30.00 total), 2 candybars (my kids were happy), and 5 cigs. Not bad. 😊 Had a trip 2 months ago got a 10.00 tip and pack of cigs with 2 missing lol (lady was drinking just wanted 2 cigs so gave me the pack). Cigarettes are 8.00 to 10.00 a pack so not a bad tip. Anyone else get tipped with something other than cash?

      Because you are a man:) Lol No offense:)  I've read post where some guys claim girls offered them sexual favors but I am not buying it from some of them. Lol

    This is such a suggestive question!  Obviously, everyone is now looking for stories where drivers were offered sexual favors for a free ride. (or, I guess, a tip.)  Hahaha

    No, no interesting story for me.  Someone gave me a leftover ticket to a hockey game as a "tip" once. LOL.

      Lol. I have seen stories where females have offered lap dances and other sexual favors for tips. Although some of the stories I dont necessarily believe. I think those drivers were hoping this would happen more so than it actually happening:) One driver found a few hundred in cash and a bag of weed although dont think that rider meant to leave that as a tip. Thankfully that driver found it before his next rider. Some drivers got bottles of wine. I got the obvious cash but also a pack of cigs when I used to smoke, candy bar, offers to buy me food or drinks if we stop at store or drive thru. Funny thing about those who offer you food or drinks and you decline some end up not tipping you. It wouldve cost them cash at drive thru if driver declines why not give a cash tip? I guess they secretly hope you decline the food and drinks. Lol I've been invited in to bars for a drink (just what a driver needs). I had a rider one night who ordered express pool, never walked to pick up locatio...

I had a rider one night who ordered express pool, never walked to pick up location found him at the bar claimed he didnt know he had to walk. Dropped him at his front door.  Bragged the entire 7 min trip how much money he made, how much his home cost, told me is family was on vacation and had the balls to invite me on for a drink. I obviously declined but no tip. Guess i turned down what was to be my tip. One other time I was invited in to snort adderall, smoke some weed, drink beer and have a few shots:) That was another tip I declined. People are stupid. Suppose the riders befire them offered me those things then I went and picked them up. Would you really  want that driver driving you? So dumb.
