Ask me what I do for a living, and you’ll get a handful of answers. I’m a freelance … everything. My situation isn’t uncommon, though. In an economy where it’s the new norm to have a day job and a night job and a third job as well, everyone is looking for the next best way to earn extra money. For better or worse, I’m a typical Millennial: lazy yet motivated. Because of this, I’ve scoured the web for ways to earn as much as possible by doing as little as possible. So, of course, I’ve checked out Uber.
There are two key ways pretty much anyone can make money with Uber. Let’s check them out. You can click here and sign up to become an Uber Drive partner at anytime, or here to Deliver with UberEats (you will need to pass a quick background check after signing up).
1. Drive with Uber.
Well, you expected that one, right? Unless you’re living in some carless society, you know that Uber is the app that gets you where you want to go. If you’re at least 21 years old, have a year of driving experience under your belt, and have a valid U.S. driver’s license, you’re good to go. If you’re a freelancer or want to get your side hustle on, sign up to drive with Uber.
Not 21 yet? Prefer the company of the radio and the open road rather than other people? UberEATS may be up your alley, then. UberEATS is Uber meets delivery, and it’s available in 37 major U.S. cities.
To deliver with UberEATS, you only have to be 19 years old, have a year of driving experience, and a valid driver’s license or own a bike instead. Just like driving with Uber, UberEats means you get to set your own hours. You work whenever and you bring people food straight from a variety of restaurants. Ready to deliver yet?
Oh, and there are perks.
With Uber, you decide on how many hours you want to work, and you set your own schedule. You get to meet all sorts of people. You also get perks. Like, fuel plan discounts. Cell phone plan discounts. Even financial planning discounts. Perks are yet another great reason to sign up to drive.
