Our referral program has two components.
- Up front bonus for sharing Upside with others
- Continued cash back earnings when your referrals use Upside
Up front bonus:
When you share your promo code and get a new user to join Upside, they’ll get a 20¢ per gallon bonus on their first offer, and you’ll get a 20¢ per gallon bonus when your referral uses the app for the first time (aka the first time they successfully earn cash back). Win-win.
Note: Your referee must spend a min of $10 on their first gas purchase in order for you to receive your 20¢/gal bonus and for the referral to be valid.
Continued cash back earnings when your referrals use Upside:
Upside continues to reward you for your referrals after the initial signup bonus. You'll earn 2¢ for every gallon of gas bought by someone you've referred, and 1¢ for every gallon of gas bought by someone your referral referred. (And that's on top of the 20¢/gallon signup bonus!)
We do this because we believe that you can encourage your friends to continue using Upside, so we want to thank you for that encouragement with 2¢/gal for every gallon the buy. You can also encourage your friends to bring in their friends and we encourage you to do this by providing 1¢/gal for every gallon a friend of a friend buys through Upside.
Earnings from the continued cash back component of the referral program exists for as long as a referred user is using Upside. If at any point in the future Upside decides to close down the continued cash back component of the program, Upside will pay $1.00 for every 1st degree referral and $0.25 for every 2nd degree referral you’re connected to.
