Lyft to Limit Points-Earning Partners to One
Lyft currently offers two ways to link your Lyft account to a loyalty program and earn bonus points on your rides.
Linked to Delta SkyMiles, you earn 2 miles per $1 spend on airport rides; 1 mile per dollar otherwise.
Linked to Hilton Honors, you earn 3 points per $1 spent on Lyft rides.
Today, they sent an email stating that come June 30th, you either have to choose one or the other – or they’ll do it for you (using whichever you linked first).
You’ll need to go into your app and find the “Rewards” tab in the top left nav menu.
So which partner to choose?
I value Delta SkyMiles at 1.2 cents and Hilton Honors at 0.5 cents.
So, ignoring airport rides, I a get 1.2% rebate on spend with Delta as the partner, or 1.5% with Hilton.
However, for airport rides, you are getting 2.4% with Delta.
You can change anytime, so if you really want to optimize, you could pick Hilton for most of the time and Delta for airport rides.
And if this post helped you, please consider sharing it!
You can find credit cards that best match your spending habits and bonus categories at Your Best Credit Cards.
