Google Pay: Lyft 10% Cash Back

Google Pay is offering 10% cash back on Lyft rides! Like other Google Pay deals, this is a limited-time offer that requires activation before purchase. Take advantage of this deal to get 10% off on your next couple of rides with Lyft!

Ninja Update 5/14/21: Offer expiration has been extended to June 6 and some people are seeing a 30% offer instead of 10%.

Google Pay Overview

Google relaunched Google Pay (GPay) in December 2020 after announcing major new features.

The biggest update is a Venmo-like ability to pay people, groups, and businesses. You can also split payment for things like dinner or rent – and even use Google Pay to order food or buy gas, all from within the app.

Lyft 10% Cash Back Offer

Google Pay is offering 10% cash back on Lyft rides!

You only need to use the Google Pay app to activate the offer. Once you do, simply use any of your enrolled credit card or debit card when you use Lyft and you’ll get 10% back, up to a maximum of $10 cash.

You’re allowed to participate in this offer twice.

The Bottom Line

It’s nice you can do this deal two times.

I recommend saving it for the more expensive Lyft rides to get as much of the $10 maximum as you possibly can, although it’d be hard to reach $10 considering you need to spend $100 per ride in order to do so.

For the more “adventurous” ninjas, this deal also works with Lyft when you use it towards bikes and scooters.
