Searching for a side hustle? Start driving with Uber and get a bonus of $750
Complete 30 trips and the extra cash is all yours.
The cost of living is rising and if you're feeling the pinch, picking up a second job or a side hustle could be the answer.
If you've been umming and ahhing about getting some skin in the rideshare game, now's a good time to set those wheels in motion (pun intended).
Until 2 October 2022, Uber has a super sweet deal that gives you an extra $750 for signing up to drive with Uber.
Okay, so what's the catch?
Well, on top of being approved to drive with Uber (you'll have to pass a background check, have your full licence, be properly insured and your vehicle must meet Uber's requirements), you will have to complete 30 trips in the first 90 days of signing up.
By the numbers, if you pick up just 1 gig a day, you could be cashing in on your bonus within a month.
Only select types of Uber products are eligible for this promotion, too. This varies by city but includes UberX, XL, Pool Comfort, Premier, Pet, Assist and Hourly.
Sadly, if you already drive with Uber or have signed up in the past (including Uber Eats), you won't be eligible for this deal.
Another thing to keep in mind is that the 90 days is from the time you sign up – not from when you're eligible to drive.
You can't accept rides until you're approved and onboarded. This will likely cut into the time you have to make your 30 trips.
Our advice? Once you sign up, work through the processes as quickly as possible to get on the road as soon as you can.
