Since teaming up with Starbucks last year, we’ve been hard at work collaborating on ways to bring you more rides. Today, we’re excited to announce two new additions: Star rewards for morning Lyft commuters, and the first-ever Lyft gift card, available exclusively at participating Starbucks stores.
Start Your Day Off Right
Starbucks is a top Lyft destination, and a quarter of our rides take place during commute hours. Because you’re already part of passengers’ morning routine, we’re focusing on maximizing demand during these hours.
As thanks to passengers for choosing Lyft (and give them more reason to request daily), they’ll now earn Starbucks Rewards™ Stars for rides taken between 5-10 AM on weekdays, plus extra Stars if they’re a first-time Lyft passenger.
A New Way to Pay
Gift cards for Lyft are a top request, something that we can’t wait to bring to life with Starbucks. For the first time ever, $20 Lyft gift cards will be available at participating Starbucks stores nationwide starting August 9 — and we’re sweetening the deal by adding a $5 Starbucks gift card on top.
Now, passengers can request and gift rides for every reason, especially for birthdays, stocking stuffers, and students with a tight budget. With the cost already covered, there’s no barrier to hitting ‘Request.’
Keep an eye on your weekly Driver Digest email and the Hub for the latest on our Starbucks collaboration. Whether it’s a coffee giveaway, upgrade to Gold Status, or another perk, know that it’ll be designed with you in mind.
Lyft Gift cards available at participating Starbucks locations while supplies last. Lyft commuter promotion available for a limited time only. Terms apply.
