Work! We all do it! Unless you’re unemployed. Then best of luck getting back on your feet, but, back to work. Whether you’re the boss or the boss of you, a cubicle dweller or someone who’s found a way to avoid the old corporate veal pen, one thing’s for sure. Most of us need to get to and from work every day. Whatever your situation, you can make Freebird work for you!

Here are 5 ways you can use Freebird to make your commute more rewarding!

1. The Corporate Commute


Car ownership can be expensive and a hassle. Even if you’re moving and shaking, you don’t necessarily need to be driving. High gas prices and unexpected repair bills can be a real drag. On top of that, who likes driving in traffic? A masochist maybe? Yes, but not sensible folk like us! And does your work deduct a chunk of your paycheck just for the privilege of parking at work? Not cool! But, with the convenience of ridesharing along with the convenience of the Freebird app, you can get where you’re going without all those hassles and get rewarded while you’re doing it. And for current users, Freebird periodically offers bonus-point deals as an extra incentive during heavy commute hours. Earn points for your ride to and from work and give yourself a bonus by redeeming those, sweet, sweet points for cold, hard cash.

2. The Alternative Office


So you’ve found a way to outsmart the man (or woman), and you don’t work in an office. Whether you’re an up-and-coming blogger working from your favorite coffee shop, a freelance professional organizer desperately trying to spark joy in your clients or an Instagram influencer Photoshopping the perfect clouds for your next post – just make sure to vary them a bit – Freebird can work for you, too. Get points for your ride to wherever your work may be that day or get cash back if you feel like blogging from a more exotic location like a participating tiki bar. Wherever you do your business, Freebird can help you get paid while you’re trying to get yourself paid!

3. The Business Trip


So you’ve gotta travel for business. No problem! Leave that emotional-support peacock at home and bring Freebird with you! Give your friend who lives near the airport a break from the hellish experience of dropping you off at the airport and use Freebird to book your Lyft or Uber and earn points for your ride there. Once you get to where you’re going, you can continue earning points for your rides and use the app to explore a new city. Use the explore screen to get ideas for where to dine or get a drink while earning cash back on your business trip. With Freebird, you get an extra bonus on top of your travel reimbursement.

4. The Networking Event


Networking is vital to career development and growth and can often help you get to where you want to go faster. And using the Freebird app to earn points on your rides to and from networking events, happy hours and other work meetups can help you to get to that cash reward faster! Who knew Freebird could also be used as a networking tool? Now that’s what I call multi-tasking!

5. The Audition


What big star drives themselves to their own auditions? None that I know, but then again, I don’t know any. Book your ride to your next audition with the Freebird app, earn points and extra time to learn your lines on the way there. After you get your big break, we’ll get your soon-to-be-famous ass home safe or if you blew the audition, use the explore screen to find a bar to drown your sorrows. Then get home safe with Freebird to audition another day! Plus we give you a cut of the backend!

So whatever you do for gainful employment, I wish you the best of luck in all of your career endeavors. And once you’ve made it to the top, don’t forget that Freebird was with you along the way. Just remember. When there was only one set of tire tracks in the pavement, Freebird carried you…to your next cash reward! Pretty inspiring, huh?!?
