Car sharing service Getaround is running a promotion for August that pays $500 when you complete a listing of your car and $50 when you take your first ride.
The $50/$500 Getaround credits can go a long way – there are plenty of cars for about $8 an hour on the Getaround system.
I have detailed my experience in my Getaround Review in January. I use the service every week when in San Francisco since I sold my car last year. There are glitches (like some cars do not open until you call the Getaround help center) but it has worked surprisingly well.
I rented cars as diverse as a Fiat 500 to a BMW 6 Coupe and they have always been as described by the owner and the rental hand-over was mostly flawless.
Getaround has cars in:
– San Francisco Bay Area
– San Diego
Even if you have a car it makes sense to sign up now and secure your credit before it goes back to $25 on August 31st. Your first rental can be as little as $5 – you don’t even have to drive it – the $50 credit posts when you make the booking 🙂
