New Driver Sign-on Bonus

A New Driver Sign-on Bonus lets you earn a guaranteed amount for completing a certain number of deliveries in a set time period. In case you don't make the amount from the original earnings, Spark will cover the difference to meet the bonus amount.  If you make more than the bonus amount from the original earnings during the incentive period, you will get to keep the extra amount.

Payment process and timeline:

Participants will be able to see a summary of deposits in the earnings tab of their Spark app.

Eligible/Ineligible Deliveries:

Deliveries that are returned back to the store because the customer was not home to accept them as scheduled, will be counted as completed deliveries. The return trip back to the store will not be counted as a separate delivery in this case.

Deliveries that are cancelled, dropped, or accepted but not delivered, will not be counted towards completed deliveries.

Additional terms:

New driver incentives are limited to customer demand in one delivery zone.  All accepted orders must be completed to qualify.  Deliveries are limited to one order per hour and pay per order may vary.
