The search feature is atrocious. If I try to search an area, it jumps all the way to locations 5+ miles away for no reason. Also, why isn't every location of certain chain restaurants available? Every single Jersey Mike's within 10 miles is on the list EXCEPT the one closest to me, of course. Why??? And if you just generically look for restaurants, only a fraction of available restaurants show up but if you look at the map, there are way more.

Hello there, thanks for the feedback. We'll do our best to partner with more retailers until we get partnered with the stores/stations near you as soon as possible. I'll also pass this along to the appropriate team and hopefully they will add more stores/stations.

very convenient to use on the go while on a road trip or just around neighboring cities, not to mention your own hometown. Upside is always adding new places where you can claim an offer, and I really love the ease of cashing out my money directly to my checking account! Or I could choose from one of their many great options of gift cards, i.e., Amazon, Starbucks, and great restaurants!

My wife and I use Upside every chance we get. Updating my review. It wasn't long ago that I gave this app 5 stars. It's most unfortunate that Upside is trying to scam people with the new Pay With App. So, if you are using this app, be very careful. Pay very close attention to the offer. If you scan your card at the point of purchase, there's a very good chance that Upside used your credit card on file to also pay for your purchase. The bottom line, Upside might be double charging customers.
