As rideshare drivers, gas is one of our biggest expenses. We want to try to save as much as possible on gas! Recently we learned about an app that will get you cash back on gas purchases: Getupside.
Getupside is a really simple way to earn cash back on gas purchases. You just look for a gas station within the app, claim an offer, purchase your gas, submit your receipt, and within two to three days you get cash back. It’s really that easy.
Take a look at our video review of GetUpside, then check out the video transcript below. If you’d like to try GetUpside, sign up with our link.
How to sign up for GetUpside
You’ll start by clicking a signup link (our referral link). The app is available for both iPhone and Android. After you click the link, it will bring you to your app store so you can download the app.
So we have it downloaded, now we’ll open it. Here’s some welcome screens that you’ll see when you first open the app. I’ll sign up using my Google account. Now since we clicked the link in the description, this promo code will apply. Then it will ask you what kind of gas you usually buy. I’ll choose regular. You can also enable the app to send you notifications.

GetUpside app features: Finding gas deals
You can see that there are two nearby BP gas stations where I can earn cash back on gas. And also at the top you can see that my 15 cents per gallon signup bonus is included on those offers.
In order to claim an offer, you’ll just select that orange claim button at the bottom there. You can see now that we have a claimed offer and we have four hours until that offer expires. And it’s savings of 25 cents per gallon. So that’s actually a 10 cent per gallon offer, plus the 15 cent per gallon signup bonus for a total of 25 cents per gallon.
Rules: You must pay with a credit or debit card and print a receipt
You need to purchase the gas using a credit card or a debit card. That way they can confirm that the person that claimed the offer is the one making the purchase. And you want to make sure that you select “yes” to print the receipt because you need to submit a picture of this receipt in the app to confirm your purchase and get your cash back.
Let’s upload the receipt. We’ll open the Getupside app, find the offer we claimed, then we’ll select ‘upload receipt.’ You want to make sure that you’re taking a picture of the entire receipt so that they can see all of the necessary information. Now the app will take you through a review of the receipt. Is the entire receipt in the picture? Yes. Is the card type and last four digits of the card shown? Yes. Is there an address? Yes. Is there a date and time? Yes. Did you make the purchase within the four hour window? Yes. Is the gallons purchased shown? Yes. Is the total paid shown? Yes. And then you’ll get a confirm screen. Attach receipt.
Now the receipt has been submitted and we’ll get our cash back within two to three days.
I got my cash back within the same day!
I actually ended up getting my cash back within that same day, and here’s the email confirmation that I received. I ended up getting 10.8 gallons of gas and with that 25 cents per gallon offer, I ended up getting $2.70s cash back.
How to claim your cash back on GetUpside
Now we’ll go over to the Getupside app, and up in the top right there you can see all the cash back that I’ve earned. I’ve earned a little bit more since that first purchase. If you select that dollar amount in the top right there, you then have a few options to withdraw your cash. You can withdraw via a digital gift card. Here are the six that they show on this screen. If you want more options, you can select the view all digital gift cards and there’s a bunch of options here.
We’ll select the Amazon gift card. And in order to get a digital gift card, you have to have a balance of at least $10, so my balance is not high enough yet to get one of these digital gift cards.
You also have two more options to withdraw so you can withdraw via PayPal. And with PayPal, if you try to withdraw less than $15 there will be a $1 service fee, we’ll cancel that. You also have the option to mail a check and there will be a $1 service fee with the check if you have a balance of $50 or less. I’m going to hold off on withdrawing my money until I have $15 and I’m going to use the PayPal option.
Other ways to save with GetUpside
Let’s look at some other ways you can save money using the Getupside app. Back in the Getupside app here, you can see that you can also earn cash back at certain restaurants. There’s a Burger King and a Wendy’s where you can earn some cash back.
Currently in my area, there aren’t any grocery stores that offer cash back, but hopefully some will be added soon.
The referral feature on GetUpside has big potential
If you select the top left clipboard icon and select free gas, you have this referral option to refer friends to use the Getupside app.
This is basically what we did with the rideshare guy referral link, where we earned that extra 15 cents per gallon cash back signup bonus. And once that friend uses that 15 cents per gallon signup bonus, you also get an extra 15 cents per gallon cash back on your next offer.
You also earn money for every gallon of gas that your referral buys in the future and claims with the Getupside app. And that’s 1 cents per gallon that you will earn. And you can see your invite code at the bottom there. And in order to copy that referral link, you’ll just select the send icon to the right of that.
I’m using an iPhone and it gives me a bunch of options in order to send the link. You can copy it, you can message it, you can mail it, you have a bunch of different options. So those are a couple of other ways that you earn cash back using the Getupside app.
GetUpside offers easy savings on gas
My overall review of the Getupside app is it’s a great app for anybody that drives, especially rideshare drivers. It’s a great way to get cash back on gas that you’re purchasing, and for drivers that drive a lot, you could end up saving hundreds per year on gas.
Signing up is really easy, so is claiming offers and submitting receipts. It’s really a simple way to earn cash back on gas. If you’re ready to sign up, you sign up with our link to get a 15 cent per gallon signup bonus. Thanks again for watching and reading!
