About this app

Make every day more rewarding.

Download Upside to earn cashback on what you need, so you spend on what you love.

Upside is a platform that lets you shop as usual and earn cash back, but in a way that makes sure businesses earn too. Claim an offer and get the most value on gas, groceries, and restaurants. There’s no limit to how much you can earn, and you can even use it with other coupons, discounts, and loyalty programs.

We’re not your average cash back app. This is a win-win for you AND the store you’re buying from. So buy what you need and feel good about it. When we’re all better off, communities thrive.

- Gas stations: Up to 25¢/gal cash back on gas at 25,000+ gas stations across the U.S. (including all the big brands like Shell, Valero, BP, Phillips 66, Circle K, Speedway, 76, Racetrac, Conoco, Mobil, and Exxon).
- Restaurants: Up to 45% cash back at 17,000+ restaurants, cafes, fast food joints, and more.
- Grocery stores: Up to 30% cash back on groceries in select cities like Minneapolis, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix, and Raleigh.

Download the app to see locations near you.

(1) Claim your offer through the app
(2) Pay as usual with any credit or debit card
(3) Either Check In, or snap and submit a photo of your receipt
(4) Cash out whenever you want!

It’s really that easy. Buy anything you need and earn real cash every time you shop. You can cash out whenever you want via PayPal, e-gift card, or bank transfer.

We partner with local businesses (gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants nearby) who want to win your business.

With Upside, you earn cash back on what you need so you can spend on what you love. Upside users earn 2 to 3 times more cash back compared to any other app out there, and merchants are earning more profit than ever before. When shoppers get more value and businesses earn more profit, communities grow stronger.

Too good to be true? Download and see for yourself.

When I first installed it, the prices were right but lately, they've been showing lower than what it actually is at the station. Anywhere from a .10 to a .20 difference. I drive to the stations with the lowest prices that are close by only to find out it's more than what the app shows. The app is updated, I've reinstalled it too and it's still not showing the correct prices. Hope this gets fixed soon.

It's a little tricky to get used to. You have to 'claim' an offer when you are nearby. It shows you the offers when you launch the app. Then when you arrive you 'check in'. Note: do NOT check in until you are actually there! I checked in from the street in front of the business and I was denied and lost the deal. You give it only some of the numbers for your card and it verifies it later and adds it to your account. BUT I also just cashed out $57.00 for 1 years refunds. Cool!

The app continues to get easier to use, and glitches appear to be worked out over time; so I am raising my rating. The restaurant and grocery store options are improving as well. If one can end up with $60.00 back in one's bank account, for doing the shopping and dining one would have done anyway, every quarter, that's real money earned through little effort by the end of a year.
