How do I use Upside to get cash back at restaurants?

  1. Open: Open the app when you feel like dining out at a restaurant. 
  2. Claim: Claim the best offer from a business near you.
  3. Swipe & Snap: Pay for your purchase as usual, with your regular credit or debit card. Then follow app guidance to snap pictures of your itemized receipt & your credit card receipt. No special cards or numbers to remember; no coupons to bring.
  4. Earn: Receive cash back directly in the app. Cash out your earnings whenever you want via PayPal, e-gift card, or mailed check. 

A few things to note to ensure you earn cash back:

  • Make sure to claim your offer before you make your purchase and make your purchase within 4 hours of claiming your offer. 


  • Make sure to get a receipt so you can submit a picture of it.
  • Make sure to pay with credit or debit card. Cash payments are not eligible for cash back.
  • Upside helps you earn cash back on purchases you make. Uploading receipts from others is against our terms of service and you will not earn cash back on those receipts.
  • Gift card purchases and food delivery orders are not eligible for cash back. 
  • Be sure to include a picture of both your itemized receipt and your credit card receipt so we get all the necessary info:
