In case you haven't heard of Lyft, they are a ride-share (similar to cab company) that just expanded to LA. I've used them in SF and have had good experiences.

Seems like they are emailing out the same code: GLTLFT4336
You have to download the android or iphone app to use this service.
Enter the code in the settings/lyft credits section of the app to get your $25 credit.

How is this code limited to Los Angeles only? I've been trying to enter the code in my app (currently outside of LA) but it keeps telling me the code is invalid. Is it checking my GPS location? I've never used the service before if that is a helpful datapoint.

In case anyone wants to use it outside of LA, you have to spoof your GPS location. You can do this pretty simply on Android with the following steps:
  1. Install an app like "My Fake Location" https://play.google.com/store/app...e.location
  2. "Enable Mock Locations" under Developer Options in Android
  3. Launch the Fake Location app and set your position to somewhere in Santa Monica
  4. Launch the Lyft app and apply the code GLTLFT4336

I something similar can be doen with an IOS device, but you may need root to fiddle with the GPS.

App is not compatible with the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Neither is Uber. Friggin amazing. I don't use a smarphone. I carry an old dumb flip phone. But I also carry my Nexus 7 with LTE everywhere. I can really use one of these ride services, but can't install any of them on the Nexus 7. I always end up calling a cab.

Use code "RHPromo" and you will get the credit now!
