Budweiser and Lyft are coming together to offer free rides as part of their new campaign, “Give a Damn. Don’t Drive Drunk.”

Starting this Friday through the end of the year, Budweiser will provide up to 80,000 total Lyft rides on weekend and holiday nights during peak party hours in Illinios, New York, Colorado and Florida.

Here’s how it works:

  • Each Thursday at 1 p.m. CT, Budweiser will share a unique code on its Facebook and Twitter accounts, which consumers over 21 can enter into the Lyft app to claim a $10 free ride credit.
  • This ride credit can be redeemed the following Friday and Saturday, between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. local time, designed to be accessed when people are returning home after a night out.
  • The first 5,000 Lyft users to claim these codes each week will have the chance to use them that weekend.

This promotion is available to both new and existing Lyft users, and the claim and redemption periods will be extended during certain holidays. Consumers in participating markets should check out Budweiser and Lyft’s social channels each week for these updates.

Just remember — each code is good for a $10 credit or free ride up to $10.
