Eats Earnings Boost
Bookmark this webpage on your phone - use the listed addresses to position yourself in the purple Extra Earnings Zones shown below to maximize your earnings and take advantage of the UberEATS Fare Multiplier Earnings Boosts.
How It Works
You now have two-ways to earn more per trip: 1) take trips during the incentivized hours and 2) take trips inside Extra Earnings Zones.
- Any qualified EATS trips you take during the incentive hours will give you an earnings boost of up-to 20% more than the normal trip fare.* Check your weekly Monday email for hours and Earnings Boost multipliers.
- Incentive hours are daily from 9am - 2pm & 5pm - 10pm.
- Want to increase your trip payouts even more? Go online in the purple Extra Earnings Zones shown in the map below... qualified trips from restaurants in these areas will earn you an ADDITIONAL 20% more than the original trip fare.
- The additional earnings will show up every Tuesday on your weekly pay statement, they will not appear real-time in-app.
Delivery rates are $1.30 per mile + $3.50 per drop off. Here's an example of the new Earnings Boosts in-action:
It's Saturday lunch hour at 1:00pm, and you make a delivery that earns you $10. Because the trip was during the incentivized hours, you get 1.2x, or +20% the normal fare, so you would earn $12 for that trip. Plus, you positioned yourself in a great place, and the restaurant was inside the Extra Earnings Zone. Congratulations, you just got an additional 20%, giving you a final takeaway of $14. After finishing, you stay online and drive towards the nearest Extra Earnings Zone to take advantage of the next earnings-boosted trip.
