If you're planning a road trip this summer, there are four apps you may want to download first.
Motiva, in partnership with technology company GetUpside, launched a nationwide advertising campaign to introduce the GetUpside program.
Feeling the pain at the pump? You’re not alone. We’re paying more for gas than we were a year ago.
To offset the cost of rising gas prices, some Long Island gas stations are getting savvy when it comes to competing for customers.
Mobile apps such as GetUpside and GasBuddy's Pay with GasBuddy program are "essentially like an after-the-fact coupon for filling your tank," an expert says.
Rising gas prices are once again taking a heavy toll on consumers wallets, but recently a new app was launched to help ease the pain.
The app's developers, former Google engineers Wayne Lin and Alex Kinnier, believe their app is a win-win for consumers, who save money, and businesses, which gain customers.
North Florida consumers are just a download away from saving up to 25 cents per gallon at several gas stations in the Jacksonville area.
GetUpside has signed up with several national chains to reimburse drivers for fuel, usually by 5 to 20 cents a gallon.
For diehard drivers obsessed with finding the lowest gasoline prices, new smartphone app are making it possible to stealthily beat the prices posted at the pump.
"We are committed to helping consumers here save and businesses here grow," Kinnier said.
Apps like GasBuddy and GetUpside provide ways for consumers to save while filling up.
Pump, snap and save. It's that simple.
"Our goal is to help as many people as possible save money," explains Wayne Lin, Co-creator of the app.
An app-based service offering deals on gasoline of up to 25 cents off per gallon has arrived in Florida, including Sarasota and Manatee counties.
“We are thrilled to launch GetUpside in Florida, which has a high percentage of work commuters, rideshare drivers and truckers who will benefit from GetUpside’s unique cash back platform. With year-round tourism and status as a transportation hub, Florida was an obvious choice for GetUpside’s first market expansion. We are committed to helping consumers here save and businesses here grow,” said GetUpside co-founder/CEO Alex Kinnier.
From Uber drivers to I-95 commuters to soccer moms, Floridians spend an average of $2,900 annually on gas. What if there were a Priceline-like app to slash that cost burden?
Today, GetUpside officially launched service in Florida in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Over 400 gas stations in South Florida are now offering exclusive deals through GetUpside, including familiar brands like Shell, Marathon and Chevron.
Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties are the first to get GetUpside, but the service will soon be available throughout the entire state of Florida. By the end of 2018, more than 1,500 gas stations statewide are expected on the GetUpside platform.
Smart shoppers look for every possible way to save money, and cash back apps have certainly made it easier. Now there’s one for gas purchases.
Drivers who used the app since its launch have saved about $1 per pump on average, the company says. It’s currently available at 650 gas stations in the D.C. and Baltimore area. The startup’s internal numbers show $300,000 in cash back was distributed overall since launching last year.
GetUpside is focused on strengthening local communities by connecting consumers with local businesses. Since non-profits are an important part of local communities, we’ve launched GasForGood, a way for GetUpside users to support local causes through the cash back they’ve earned.
GetUpside offers specialized discounts on fuel and other gas-station purchases to the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia markets.

GetUpside operates differently from other fuel-savings apps by offering its services to one gas station in each geographic cluster, making it harder for competitors to know what the true price of gas is at the station. Additionally, it offers a different discount to each user, reducing the possibility of a price war occurring, according to the report…

“People will drive out of their way to save money on gas, even if they have to spend extra money on gas to get there,” said Jeff Lenard, vice president of strategic initiatives at the National Association of Convenience Stores, a trade association for gas stations. “It’s a great feeling among consumers to take control of something they previously didn’t have control of…
GetUpside negotiates discounts on the price of gasoline sold at individual stations and posts them on a map accessible from a smartphone app. Users claim their savings by taking a picture of their receipt, much like the mobile check-deposit services many banks now use…
With the exception of credit-card use and self-fueling stations, the process of buying gasoline has changed little since the days of Henry Ford. So with gas prices rising again, seasoned technology innovators see an opportunity to change how people pay at the pump…
The new app, GetUpside, plays on a simple premise. People want to save money buying gas and gas stations want to see more repeat customers—especially when Kinnier says that 75 percent of gas station customers don't come back…
