Poor Customer Service
There were 2 offers at the same station. However, the LOWER offer (4 cents) was visible ONLY if I zoomed in on the map while the HIGHER offer (8 cents) was visible in a plain search. This is a deceptive practice. I only realized this because when I saw the payout it was much lower than the offer. So I went back to the app to make sure and the 8 cent offer was still there. However, there was also a hidden offer at the same station only visible if you zoomed in as far as possible on the map. If that’s not clear then imagine if I put up a large sign that says “8 cents back on every gallon!” Then you fill your tank only to realize the next day that you only received 4 cents back. You come back to check the sign and indeed it says 8 cents. However, when you closely inspect it you see a tiny little sign that says 4 cents back—two offers at the same station, one plainly visible and another hidden from view. This is EXACTLY what happened with the app and it’s deceptive. However, I wasn’t even paid 4 cents, it was 3 cents. This is extremely deceptive. When I contacted customer service about it they blew me off and told me that the payment (of 3 cents) was made and if I had additional questions go to the FAQ page. Nice.

Love the new name upgraded!
I love the app! Had it ever since 2018 don’t regret it at all whatsoevr 🤷🏾♀️ it’s free money building up for me! I only given it a 4 ⭐️ outta 5 bc I can’t update my email address. I contacted support & was told atm we r not updating email addresses but I can update anything else 🙄 thts super annoying when apps do this. I love to c my history etc since I had it since 2018 & for me to jst deactivate & start ovr baffles me bc I don’t like starting ovr when I had this app long enough. I understand if I forgot my login info which tht doesn’t happens bc u can always click on “forgot password” link. So now I still have to use my old email for this particular app since I can’t update my email but hopefully which am wishing in the near future tht it changes bc y can’t we loyal customers change/update email address. Esp now since they’re making major changes to the app but we Upside customers can’t update ours 🤦🏾♀️🙄 I don’t like tht! But overall love the app love the new name but w/all these new updates the app now loss up slower when am at locations trying to checkin/lid up receipts. Like whts rlly up w/tht! Unless it’s the 5G bc I don’t have a phone tht already comes w/ 5G all I did was update my SIM card not my iPhone yet but unfortunately I will soon. B even when am at home using my food WiFi the GetUpside/Upside app still loads up slower.
I chose to fill up my Jeep at a Casey’s on June 9th. The Walmart gas station was about $.40/gal cheaper, but Upside showed Casey’s having an offer of something around $.40/gal cash back (I can’t remember the exact amounts, but it was close to this). I put 17 gallons in my Jeep. Today, on June 15th, 6 days later, Upside finally processed the offer. Except it was processed at Casey’s current offer of $.06/gal cash back. The only reason I chose Casey’s over Walmart with that price difference was for the cash back because it made it worth it. What an absolute scam that was. When we use this app it makes us scan our receipt to include the time and date of the purchase. I would expect part of that to mean we are locked in at the offer that was valid at the time of our purchase. When I tried to find a way to contact Upside about this, all I found was the useless FAQ section that never actually answers the question. I even tried chatting with the bot that answers automatically and the bot didn’t have an answer either. This was only my second time using this app and it may be my last if this is how it deceives you. Especially with no customer service.
I was finally able to reach customer service. After a few emails back and forth, they agreed to fix my issue and the proper amount was added to my account.
