    What do I get for not owning a car for over three years? I'm invisible to Lyft though because I have a dumbphone...

        Very happily. Throwing it away was like waking from a nightmare.

    Considering that I work part time for Lyft and make $600 to $900 per WEEK, I am SO GLAD I do not live in Chicago.  This is a very poor compensation for giving up my employment!

    You confused me.  I wasn't sure if this was a hypothetical or if you (the OP) were offering this out of your own pocket.

    You are talking about this

    I'm betting that the "winners" who write will all be undercover Lyft employees.  What better way to advertise than to have "random writers" review your service.

      So true. This is definitely all going to friends/family/employees.
