Octo Madness!

It’s time for Octo Madness, our version of a “bracket” where you can win $500 just for driving. Your riders are your “team” and every game point they score, you score! Every driver who makes it to the final round will get a small prize, and one lucky driver will win the $500 grand prize. Go here for all the details and official rules.

Launching Austin & Houston

Yee-haw, we’re headed to Texas!! We didn’t want the East Coast to hog all the Octopus love, so we’re launching Austin and Houston. If you have a rideshare friend in these cities, please share the news and your referral code.

Tropical Getaway

The holidays are officially over, and we’re excited to kick off another year with our incredible driver community. To celebrate, we’re giving one lucky driver a $2,000 TROPICAL GETAWAY for two! Escape the chilly Northeast with a free trip to sunny Miami – airfare, lodging, and spending money are all included. Go here for all the details and official rules.

Season Of Giving

To celebrate the holiday season, Octopus wants to give back to YOU, the drivers that have helped us get where we are today. We’re giving away 8 swag packs EVERY DAY this week. This is your chance to get a sweet Octopus t-shirt, winter gear, and more!

The first step is joining our members-only Facebook group here. Each day, we’ll announce how to win the daily prizes in the morning, and will announce winners in the evening.


This year, we’re thankful for our driver community. To celebrate, we’re sharing a few fine meals. TWO lucky drivers will each win a $500 gift card to Ruth’s Chris. All you have to do is register for the contest and drive!

Note: You must have 50 games played by passengers between 11/14 – 11/20. Go here for official rules.

Launching NYC & Boston

We’re spreading our tentacles north to two of the busiest rideshare cities in the U.S. – New York City and Boston! If you have a rideshare friend in these cities, please share the news and your referral code.

Driver Dashboard And Rolling Payouts

Today, we are proud to introduce our new driver dashboard and rolling payout system! Now any points you earn will last as long as you continue driving with the tablet. And our new payout system is simple – earn $25 for every 250 points. Payouts process on the 1st and 15th of each month (received within 3-5 business days).

With rolling points and payouts, we’ve also introduced a driver dashboard! It’s still in beta and we appreciate your patience, suggestions, and feedback. Now track your ongoing points, referrals, and payouts HERE. Just log in with your email and existing password.
