GetUpside helps businesses grow and people save by driving customers to nearby businesses with personalized cash back offers. We’re driving new customers to local businesses (more than 5,000 businesses across 13 states have made $10+ million in profit through GetUpside). We’re putting cash back in consumers’ pockets (more than $7 million cash back earned).
In the end, we want to help local businesses get what they need (customers) and consumers get what they need (gas, groceries, you name it!) for less. GetUpside is growing rapidly, with 17x growth in transaction volume in 2018 and we’re driving hundreds of millions of dollars of commerce a year!
We're a DC-based startup founded in 2016 and made up of a great collection of people from companies like Google, Opower, Washington Post, Mastercard, Capital One, and LivingSocial. We recently closed our second round of funding and are well-funded by a great group of investors who care about our company, our mission, and our team’s success.
