One (1) run will be awarded for every hour (or part therefore) driving on the App (up to ten (10) hours per day or ten (10) runs per day). Two (2) runs will be awarded for every 4-star or 5-star rated trip during the Competition Period for valid trips only and Four (4) runs for every successful driver referral made during the competition period. Uber’s algorithm and computer system shall be the official time and score keeper for the Competition, including each partner-driver’s eligible hours. Only driver referrals that register and get activated on Uber before the end of the Competition Period will be awarded runs.

Only valid Uber rides will be awarded runs. Any trip accepted and canceled by partner-driver will count against the partner-driver’s acceptance rate. Any contestant who does not abide by UBER’s current standard partner-driver terms will be disqualified. Furthermore, a partner-driver will be automatically disqualified if he/she:

  • Has another individual driving on his/her behalf while the App is opened during the Competition Period.
