Since Frequent Miler is not an online employment agency, is the idea here to sign-up, give someone a ride and then quit for the thousand bucks? I guess they’d issue a 1099.


THIS IS DEAD. As of 3pm EST today, February 27th, the terms have changed (fewer cities qualify and now you have to complete 30 rides). Check the Lyft promotion website.
