TaskRabbit    Life  is busy.  We can help.


#1: Can I accept a Runner fee in cash during my task?

Answer – No. All Runner fees need to be paid through the site. This is for your security and for the Senders safety. By making sure Senders pay the Runner fee through the site, this ensures that you will be paid for your task upon completion and Senders feel safer not having to deal with cash on the spot.

#2: What happens if I do a task and the Sender tries to pay me the Runner fee in cash?

– We ask that you very politely explain to them that all Runner fees will automatically be deducted from their online account and will be deposited into your account online. They are welcome to tip you or reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses in cash on the spot, but Runner fees are always paid through the site.

#3: Do Runner codes need to be redeemed in ALL CAPS?

Yes. Your Runner code is RUNNER## and when a Sender redeems your code, it must be entered in ALL CAPS to work.

Are you getting $5.00 for every person you refer to TaskRabbit?

Simply email me ( for your personal Runner Code.  Then share your Runner Code EVERYWHERE (email it to your friends and family, post it on your Facebook page, Tweet about it, etc)   For every new person that posts a task with your Runner Code YOU get $5 and that person gets $15 off of their 1st task.  It’s a great deal for everyone!

Posting your Runner Code on Facebook & Craigslist to market your skills as a TaskRabbit Runner and drive more business to your profile.

My job is to help you with anything, so call on me (Amanda@TaskRabbit) for assistance in situations like this!
