Free Lyft Promotion Code

Free Lyft ride: Use the promotion code "DAVID3880" ($20 off) Download the app over here.

I’ve been car-free since 2007, so I’m always looking for new ways to get around. In Chicago, where I live, a bike is generally the fastest way to get around, but sometimes it gets cold. Real cold. Not to mention, riding a bike around everywhere can get dangerous.

Sometimes I take the bus, but much of the time, it’s not unusual for it to take 40 minutes to get somewhere. Since productivity is about mind management, not time management, it’s not worth the hassle. I want to get where I’m going, fast.

I used to take taxi’s sometimes. While that was fast, it was often unpleasant. The majority of taxi drivers I’ve had have been rude, and unsafe drivers. They talk on the phone the whole time they’re driving, they make you car sick, and when it comes time to pay, they groan if you pull out your credit card. Not to mention that spending $15 to get from point A to point B really starts to add up over time.

Lyft, and other ride-sharing services such as Uber (promo code), have dramatically improved the experience of living in a big city like Chicago. With Lyft, you can get rides from regular, (background-checked) folks. A taxi ride that would cost $15 in a regular taxi tends to cost only about $10 in Lyft.

I have a special promo code set up with Lyft. Just use the promo code david3880, and you’ll get a free ride (up to $20) if you’re a new customer. Download the app right here.
