Easy Carpool with Scoop - $20 PROMOCODE available

I recently started using scoop in order to commute to work. Scoop is an app that helps you to find carpool buddies, manages the rides, cost sharing.

Here is promo code which will give you a free $20 credit on the Scoop. Use the promo code GIRIDHAR3MD and get $20 when you take your first trip (ride/drive)! It may take up to 48 hours after your first ride for the promo credit to be applied to your account. Download mobile app right here: http://m.onelink.me/220071c1

Advantages:
  1. Find carpool buddies matching your work/home location and time
  2. Choose your convenient timing every day
  3. Free cancellation until the deadline (Previous day 9pm for morning commute & 3:30pm for evening commute). For cancellation policy after the deadline, refer here (may be out of date)
  4. You may carpool with one person in the morning and you could carpool with another person in the evening
  5. Meet new people and make new friends in your community
  6. You may choose to drive or ride on any given day
  7. Things may not go as planned. If it gets delayed in the last minute or need to start early, you may contact the driver/rider and let him/her know. In my experience, people are understanding.
  8. As a driver, get paid that mostly covers your gas, tolls and wear of your car 
  9. As a driver, you may carpool in the morning and drive by yourself in the evening or vice versa
  10. As a driver, you may transfer the balance to your bank account.
  11. As a rider, convenient pickup and drop off from/to home and work
  12. As a rider, ride at discounted price (as low as $1 for some routes) for a limited time. Check your price by entering your home and work addresses in the mobile app.
  13. As a rider, if you ride in the morning, Scoop guarantees a ride back in the evening. If not able to find match, you can take other public/ride share option and reimburse up to certain amount ($40 I believe)
  14. You can refer other friends and both you and your friend can get $20 credit when he/she makes the first ride
But,
  1. You cannot choose whom you want to carpool with. Scoop will choose for you. If your are driving, Scoop will try to match with some one commuting in the same route. But you can mark some as favorites and Scoop will try to match with your favorites when possible (at least thats what Scoop claims)
  2. As a driver, you cannot provide any radius with in which you want to match with
  3. For the morning ride, you will have to schedule the drive/ride the night before (before 9pm)
  4. As a driver, some times, the matches may not be convenient, have to drive in opposite direction (short distance), driving through street traffic. But by adding the desired route buddies as favorites, I believe over time, the matched carpool buddies would be in the favorite routes.

If you have already installed the app and have not used a promo code, you can still use the promo code by going to "Pricing & Payments". You will see a box to enter a referral or promo code.

If you have any questions, most of them would be answered here.
