Cash bonuses

Cash bonuses are for drivers. If you're a rider, read about Carpool rewards.

Cool, you got some extra cash! You get a cash bonus:

  • When you invite your friends to join Waze Carpool
  • As a one-time gift – when you join Waze Carpool through a friend’s invite code and complete your first drive
  • As part of special events and promotions


Cash bonuses go toward your monthly Carpool balance. Learn more about getting paid.

Invite friends to get bonuses

You get a $20 cash bonus when:

  1. You invite a friend to join Waze Carpool, who then
  2. Signs up using your invite code, and then
  3. Completes their first ride (this ride can be with you!)


You can do this 10 times, for a maximum of $200 in bonuses. After that, feel free to invite friends without getting a cash bonus.

You only get bonuses for inviting new users – someone who:

  • Hasn’t completed a ride yet
  • Hasn’t used an invite code before to join Waze
  • Doesn’t have a confirmed ride or a ride in progress
  • Is in a region where Waze Carpool is active

What your friend gets

If you invite a friend who joins as a driver, they get a $20 cash bonus, too.

If they join as a rider, they get $20 in Carpool rewards instead.
