Kendall Jenner Gets Free Lyft Rides for a Year After Disagreement with Uber
The Kardashian/Jenner clan is basically the reigning family of social media, so you’d think that businesses around the world would do their best to keep them happy. The majority of time, that’s just the case—but Uber has decided to be one of the exceptions to that trend.

Kardashian West went on to post a Snapchat video, lamenting the fact that she had to drive Jenner around, stating, “Yeah, she’s suspended. This is not fair… so we just wanna know why was Kendall suspended? She’s literally, like, a model passenger.”
After the tweet from Kardashian West and the Snapchat video, Uber immediately explained that the app issue was really just a mix up. The transportation giant stated it was a “minor account issue.” According to People.com, an Uber source explained, “She has not been banned. It was a minor account issue that is being resolved. While it is being resolved her account was put on hold. Uber support has reached out.”

It seems like Uber’s a bit too late for that. After the “minor account issue” occurred, Jenner turned to another form of transportation—Lyft, Uber’s biggest competitor. Upon hearing Jenner’s woes, Lyft decided to offer the model free rides for a year. Because that’s exactly what a 20-year-old who is worth $10 million needs—free rides.
But really, Jenner just proves that there is one rule in our world that is more concrete than the rule of gravity—everyone loves free stuff. She’s already switched alliances between the two companies, posting a Snapchat video expressing her gratitude to Lyft for this new perk.
So, the moral of this story? If you’re looking to have a boom in business, make a Kardashian/Jenner happy. With Kendall having a total of 90 million followers across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook—not to mention Kim’s hordes of followers, too—you can definitely get a leg up on the competition.
