I used to get a bunch of emails from Lyft and Uber offering 10 rides at a discounted price.  Also Lyft had a promotion that for like $5 upfront gave you unlimited rides to and from work with a certain shaded area?  Are alot of these promotions gone now??

    Both Uber and Lyft were test marketing this option to see how their customers would respond.  To date there has been no roll out (that I'm aware of, and definitely not in my market area) of a bona-fide program of this sort. 

    It did offer savings to the passenger, paid the drivers exactly the same as always, and the caveat was that the passenger had to purchase and pay up front for a specified time period.
