There’s an Upside to everything!

Outrageous gas prices? Expensive takeout? There’s an upside to the expenses we just can’t avoid and it starts with downloading the easiest FREE app – Upside (formerly GetUpside)!

Even better, new Upside users can score a RARE $5 off ANY $10+ purchase on gas, restaurants, grocery, convenience store, & more when you apply the promo code HIP2SAVE5 to your app!🔥

With holiday purchases adding up, this is a no-brainer way to get a little spending cash back in your pocket– and all it takes is downloading a simple app, following a few easy steps, including entering our exclusive promo code, and that’s it, SO EASY!

Gas Station

Here’s how to set up your Upside app and claim this exclusive promo code:

  • Add in promo code HIP2SAVE5 when you first open the app for $5 off your first $10+ purchase. It should look like this:

– Voila! You’re all set to find stores, gas stations, and more and save on your first purchase!


Want to start earning some cashback too? Use code HIP25 for 25¢/ gallon off your first gas purchase too!

And if you forget to enter either promo code when you first sign up, no worries– just head over to your profile after signing up and you can add the code there. Easy peasy! 

Then, next time you head to the pump, make sure you’re filling up your whole tank to get the biggest savings as the offer only applies to your first gas purchase. You’ll still save on additional purchases but the first-time discount is the biggest!

How does Upside (formerly GetUpside) work?

  • Once you’ve entered our Upside promo codes HIP2SAVE5 or HIP25
  • Anytime you open the app after that, just claim an offer!
  • Head to the gas stations or store within the time limit (usually ~4 hours)
  • And check-in when you arrive!
    *Or if you forgot to check in, simply upload a photo of your receipt from the location and you’ll still get your cash back!

You can earn up to 25¢/gallon cash back on gas, up to 45% back at restaurants, and up to 30% at grocery stores.

Hip Tip: I was having some problems with GPS accuracy at first. If anyone is an Android user like myself and finds the app is reading the wrong location when checking in, try going into your Location Settings and enabling “Google Location Accuracy.” I noticed that I tended to also “drift” a lot in other location-based apps, but changing this solved the problem!


Not only is earning cash back easy, but it’s also, dare I say… fun!

Sure, filling your gas tank and buying groceries aren’t necessarily fun activities by themselves, but the Upside gas app changes it up by showing you exactly which stores in your area are participating (for a limited time!) in the promo and how to reach them.

It almost felt like a geocaching game, plus I knew I was about to save money so I was even more into it. 🤣

Plus, once you’ve saved up enough cashback, you can cash out via PayPal, check, or pick from popular gift cards such as Amazon, Starbucks, etc. I love saving up and then treating myself to Starbucks. It’s also a fun way to save for holiday gifts or birthday presents. When paying for gas or buying groceries, you’re earning on money you would be spending anyway, so it’s a win-win!

Note that it can take 4 to 24 hours for the cash back reward to appear in your account.

The coolest thing about how Upside works (aside from earning some extra $$$) is that you don’t have to put all your info out there.

To verify your purchases, all they need is the first six and last four digits of your card–and that’s it! No need to add any extra personal information you may not feel comfortable sharing.

And we’re not the only ones! Here’s what Hip readers have to say about this no-fuss app…

This is a really awesome app. I love getting cash back for buying gas and it is so easy! – Jodi


I was hesitant about ANOTHER cash-back app to keep up with. My favorite gas station in town is always the one that shows up with the best offer and since my card is linked it is SO easy and quick to use, nearly effortless – wells4858


We just discovered this app! It’s so easy to use. We are putting our savings towards Christmas gifts. – Cathy Black

Want to share these awesome savings with your friends and fam?

Good news: you can score even more savings from referring others! Plus, once you refer someone, you’ll earn a bonus every time your referral redeems an offer.

Once you are logged into your Upside app simply use the referral tool to send a text invite to others. When they download the app & redeem their first offer through your referral (and spend $10 or more), you’ll both get another 15¢ off per gallon!

Each time they redeem an offer after that, you’ll score a bonus on your next purchase… every time… forever!

    Just started using the Upside app about 1 month ago, 1st time got $9 back and the 2nd time got $5 back. It isn’t a huge amount of money but might as well get alittle something back after filling up your gas tank..

      Thanks for sharing about your experience so far with the app! I agree that every little bit helps (and adds up)! 🙌❤️
