The Ride App- Earn While you drive!

Have you checked out the ride app yet? 
If not, you are totally missing out and MUST download it now!
The ride app allows you to earn as you drive around place to place- or even ride around if you are the passenger. This means on those couponing trips you are earning as you drive to the store and back home. You are earning each week- every trip!  The only downside is that it's currently only available for the iphone.
 How does it work?

When you have Ride with you (installed on your phone), the app will record the number of miles you travel. Then, Ride automatically converts your miles into Ride points.  (Points can take up to 24 hours to credit to your account.) It doesn't drain your battery either so you don't have to worry about that.

What are Ride Points?
Ride points are the currency of the Ride Rewards Program. They are redeemable for real rewards through Ride, such as gift cards to companies like Amazon, Starbucks, Redbox, etc.

How do I redeem my ride points?
Open the Ride app, click the “Rewards” button in the bottom right corner, select the reward you want, and click “Redeem”. Your reward will be on its way to you shortly!

Earn for referring your friends
You will get an instant 50 points just for sending the invitation. When your friend downloads Ride and connects with Facebook, you will receive an additional 250 points. When your friend redeems a reward for the first time, you’ll receive another 250 points.

I have been using the app for a while now and have cashed out once. I don't go many places and the stores I do go to are right by my house. So regardless of how often you travel or even how far you can still earn with this app!
