What Is Upside
Upside (formerly GetUpside) is a mobile app that lets you earn cash back for making purchases at gas stations, restaurants, and grocery stores.
Most of the businesses that Upside partners with are gas stations where you can get up to 25 cents off per gallon. In recent months, they have added hundreds of restaurants in my area that are offering 7-10% discounts on food and drinks.
Getting the advertised cashback offer is as simple as finding a local business on the map and claiming the offer. Then you make your way to the store within the allotted time frame, which is usually a few hours. After making the purchase using your debit or credit card, you upload a picture of the receipt through the app. A few days later your cashback reward will show up in your account once Upside verifies the purchase.
Read my full review of the Upside app on how you can avoid paying full price at participating stores ever again.
If you are thinking about signing up to Upside, you can use the referral code AFF25 to get an extra new member bonus of 25 cents off per gallon. That means on your first fill-up using the app, you can save even more on gas for using Upside!

How to Add the New User Promo Code
Adding the new member discount code to your account is very easy. All you need to do is download the Upside app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
Next, open the app and choose between signing up with your Apple, Google, or Facebook account; or using your email address. On the next screen, you will see the option to enter the referral code and select your preferred gas grade.
Once completed, tap “Create account” to finish setting up your account.
If you’ve already signed up to Upside, but haven’t redeemed another promo code to your account yet; you can still add the new user referral code AFF25 to your account and get the 25 cents per gallon new member bonus on your first fill-up by following the directions in the below section.
How to Add the Bonus Promo Codes
Upside regularly releases new promo codes that will earn you extra bonus discounts on top of the normal cashback discounts you get from using the app.
To enter the special bonus promo code in the app, tap on the menu (the three horizontal bars) at the top left-hand side of the screen.
When the menu pops up, tap on “Profile”
Look for the section that says “promo code” and tap on the “Edit” link.
Enter your promo code in the field on the following page and tap “Done” on the top right.
Upside lets you stack certain promo codes even though they only show the last code entered. To add additional promo codes, repeat the above steps for each code but erase the old code before adding the new one. All the bonus savings from each code will be combined for a big discount the next time you stop at the gas station.
Upside is my current favorite app to save money at the pump. In my area, there are dozens of participating gas stations with cashback discounts ranging from 13 cents to 25 cents off a gallon.
It takes a few extra seconds to claim an offer, check-in, and upload a photo of your receipt, but the attractive discounts make up for it. The Upside app can help lessen the sting of gas prices going back up again.
The war in Ukraine has resulted in the highest gas prices in a decade. In just over a week, gas prices in my area had shot up close to 50 cents a gallon. This comes as prices for everything else have also increased due to inflation. Using money-saving apps such Upside means you’ll have more money available for other things.
If you do a lot of driving, whether it is because of your job or you are working a sharing economy gig like Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, or Instacart, you can keep more money in your wallet using Upside. Even if you don’t get the rewards in the form of cash back, you can get them as gift cards to your favorite stores and restaurants.
Keep in mind that these promo codes are only available for your next single fill-up unless otherwise specified. To get the most savings, make sure you are close to “empty” and don’t stop pumping until your tank is at “full”.
With gas prices at $3 or more right now, many trucks and SUVs with big gas tanks might hit the pump’s maximum dollar amount allowed for a single transaction (usually $100) before the tank is full. Upside’s discount is valid for up to 50 gallons of gas in one transaction. To get around the pump’s dollar limit, you can go and pre-pay inside with your credit card. Remember to ask for a receipt afterward.
Feel free to post in the comments below if you know of any new promo codes or if any of the above codes are no longer working.
Note: If you wish to post your personal referral code, Upside has changed their TOS to no longer allow posting your personal codes on blogs and websites. Read more about it on my post about Upside referral codes.
