These Lyft New Year's Eve 2018 Deals Will Help You Get Home Safely After Celebrating
New Year's Eve is right around the corner, which means it's time to get the Champagne ready. If you're anything like me and my friends, you probably pop a bottle at midnight and "cheers" to the new year. If that's the case, you might already be planning who's going to sit out on the booze and be the designated driver of the night. But thanks to Lyft's New Year's Eve 2018 deals, you might not need to. Why? Because Lyft is offering an array of promo codes in various cities throughout the country that'll give you access to safe transportation at your fingertips. If you plan your NYE rides with the company, everyone will be able to raise their glasses when the ball drops.
In order to take advantage of the Lyft promo codes for New Year's Eve, you'll have to make sure you have Lyft downloaded onto your phone. If you're not registered yet, you can download Lyft through the App Store or Google Play (it's free!). If you're not near your phone right now, you can also sign up for the car service on the company's website. After you've entered the required information, you'll be ready to order your Lyft rides on New Year's Eve.
Depending on where you live, the promotion will probably be a little different. However, each promo code will help you score a cheap (and safe) ride home after your midnight festivities. Most of them will help you make it to the party before the fun starts, too.
“Plan Ahead, Ride Safe” In Texas
If you live in Texas, you can score $5 off your Lyft ride from 8 a.m. on Dec. 31 to 4 a.m. on Jan. 1. In order to do so, enter the promo code "NYEPLAN18" into your app. You can also claim your $5 by entering your phone number here.
Texans can thank a handful of organizations for this one. According to Lyft, the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, the Silver Eagle Distributors, AAA, Anheuser-Busch, and Lyft itself teamed up to make the "Plan Ahead, Ride Safe" promo possible.
"Save Lives, Don't DUI" In Phoenix

"Safe Ride" In Kentucky
If you download Lyft for the first time on New Year's Eve, you can choose from a selection of promo codes on Lyft's website to score discounts on your first few rides. Your options include $20, $10, and $9 codes — but each one applies to your rides differently.
Invite Your Friends For Discounts
If you already use Lyft on the reg, you can invite your friends to use it for the first time and score a free ride for yourself. So, if one of your pals needs a ride home on New Year's Eve (but doesn't use Lyft yet), invite them to register onto the app. When they take their first ride, you'll get a free one.
As you can see, there are tons of Lyft codes available between now and New Year's Day that you can take advantage of after (or before) the ball drops. With that being said, make sure your ride-sharing app is ready to go before you partake in New Year's Eve festivities.
