This app is super easy to use. You basically just have to tap two buttons... once when you're at the location and once when you finish paying there. Easy. I think there is one glitch/bug, but it doesn't affect getting paid, which is the most important. Two of my referrals used it, but where it should list who used it, it's blank. This app is so awesome that it's suspicious. Lol.

I like being able to see in one place how much gas is around me. I wish there were more gas station options, only two different options in my location. I do like the app and getting cash back, with the new change of no longer needing a receipt it's nice, but sometimes doesn't register my purchase, which sucks, but only has happened a couple times since I've had the app (over a year). Overall, would recommend.

Best app I have! I use it every chance I get! Update! Upside pay is a great feature! It was be SO nice if every transaction could be done that way. Glitches sometimes out check ins, and causes missing the payout. I like that there's now grocery stores near me added, with that said the last 2 out of 3 grocery transactions where denied, and I feel its due to the fact that I have to take pics of the large receipt which is very inconvenient, and unreliable.
