Upside Cash Back App Review steps

Make sure to claim your offer before you make your purchase, and complete your purchase within twenty minutes of claiming the offer. Don’t forget to get a receipt! You need to upload the receipt for some offers, but many locations on Upside do not require receipt upload. Pay with an approved payment method. Cash or gift cards are not eligible forms of payment with Upside.

Some of the restaurants listed on Upside are also part of Seated, which means that you can double dip.

  • Bank: $1 for cash-outs that are less than $10
  • Paypal: There is a $1 fee for a cash-out under $15.
  • Gift card: $0, but please note certain cards may have certain minimum thresholds.
