We’ve teamed up with Chase to reward and deliver value to cardmembers who ride with Lyft. Beginning Jan 12, millions of cardmembers across Chase-branded credit cards can earn additional points or cash back, as well as an enhanced Lyft experience with Lyft Pink when they use eligible Chase cards on their Lyft accounts, through March 2022.

Chase Sapphire Preferred®, Chase Freedom®, Freedom Unlimited®, Freedom Student® and Ink cardmembers will receive 5x total Ultimate Rewards® points or 5% cash back on Lyft rides. In addition to these benefits and exclusively for Chase Sapphire Reserve, cardmembers will earn 10x total points on Lyft rides and each account will get one free year of Lyft Pink, our membership program that offers 15% off car rides, priority airport pickups, relaxed cancellations, and more. 

Chase has seen growth in spending in the rideshare category among its cardmembers, and this new relationship gives them a reason to always ride with Lyft. Through this relationship, cardmembers will receive a premium Lyft experience through Lyft Pink so they can travel smarter at the best value while unlocking maximum rewards.

“At Lyft we are obsessed with creating a best-in-class experience for our riders - whether that’s unparalleled service, elevated rides or rewards,” said Heather Freeland, Lyft’s VP of Product Marketing and Marketing Operations. “With Chase, we have the opportunity to take travel benefits to the next level by rewarding our riders on the credit cards they know and love.” 

“We’ve heard from our cardmembers that rideshare is increasingly becoming part of their everyday lives, and spending in this category continues to increase,” said Catherine Hogan, President Chase Branded Cards.  “We are thrilled to be teaming up with Lyft to create another way to reward our shared customers as they explore the world around them.”
