Lyft 100% bc of points return with CSR

like

I check Lyft first for the delta miles, but if Uber picks up quicker, I go with them. My time is more important than a handful of points

Agreed. I do the same based off of time

Uber Black always. 4X points

I exclusively use Uber. It’s pretty worth it imo because I get to stack up $5 Uber cash and use it for personal

smart

Nah it doesn’t

Sort of, I use Lyft for rides in the $10-25 range to get the credit toward the $5 every 5 business rides. More than that and I think Uber gets you closer to the 500 points needed for a $5 credit. You don’t get anything with Lyft (except delta and Hilton points) under $10 so I use Uber for those too.

like

FYI - Cutoff is at $25 assuming you're using a Corp Amex. Lyft $10 min includes tip so if it's $7 and you tip $3 it will count towards the 5 rides.

Lyft is totally worth it if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve.

I was Lyft exclusive until Amex started the 2x points deal with Uber so I switched. If I could use my CSR I would’ve stayed with Lyft, but...

I don’t even have the uber app, Lyft all day erryday

I like Uber because the $5 rewards stack and Lyft’s rewards don’t stack

Did not know that! I’ve been Uber “exclusive” for 6+ months now which may be why I haven’t noticed

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
