Some Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders can enjoy an extra five months of their complimentary Lyft Pink membership.

What is the Chase Sapphire Preferred – Lyft Pink Benefit?

Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders are entitled to (at least) a 12-month membership to Lyft Pink.

Lyft emailed its current Chase Sapphire Reserve-acquired Lyft Pink members yesterday with news that their memberships now get a bonus five-month extension.

Plus, all Chase Sapphire Reserve receive 10X total Ultimate Rewards points per eligible dollar spent on Lyft rides. (Read more about Chase’s partnership with Lyft.)

What if You Haven’t Activated the Lyft Pink Benefit Yet?

Don’t worry.

If you hold a Chase Sapphire Reserve (or want to get one soon, I guess) but didn’t yet opt-in to Lyft Pink, you can still take advantage of the complimentary 17-month membership. But you must enroll in Lyft Pink by October 31, 2020, to receive the five-month bonus.

This is certainly a pleasant gesture of goodwill, considering many people are probably leery of going out.

But What if I’m Not Traveling Soon?

There’s quite a big window to take advantage of the Lyft Pink – Chase Sapphire Reserve benefit. The current deadline for enrollment is March 31, 2022. So if you’re not yet a member or cardholder, you basically have and a year and a half to take advantage of the perk — and then another 12 months to use it.

What is Lyft Pink?

Lyft Pink is Lyft’s subscription service that costs $19.99 per month. (Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders who sign up for the service, of course, enjoy it fee-free for a prescribed time.)

It carries several benefits including:

  • 15% off unlimited car rides
  • Priority airport pickups
  • Relaxed cancellations (They’ll waive up to three cancel fees per month if you rebook within 15 minutes.)
  • Season discounts and exclusive offers
  • Waived lost and found fees
  • Bikes and scooters (Enjoy three free 30-min. bike or scooter rides each month (in select markets)

Lyft Pink members also receive complimentary GrubHub+ membership.

I don’t use rideshare enough — even during non-pandemic times — that I’d pay for Lyft Pink. But if you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card, it’s a good perk to activate.
