Get cash back for gas with Upside

Get cashback savings per gallon of gas through Lyft’s partnership with Upside. The higher your Lyft Rewards tier, the more you can earn when you fill up at eligible gas stations.
Tier levels:
  • Platinum driver: get up to $0.32 back
  • Gold driver: get up to $0.27 back
  • All other drivers: get up to $0.25 back
You can receive Upside cash back when you pay for gas, at eligible gas stations, with a physical card that is linked to your account. You can link multiple cards to your account.
To add a debit or credit card to your account, go offline, then link the card to your account. The card will be used as your ‘Gas cashback payment card.’
To get cash back for gas, open your Lyft Driver app:
  1. While offline, tap the driving options button located to the right of the 'Go Online' button.
  2. Tap ‘Nearby gas discounts.’
  3. Zoom in or out on the map to see eligible stations.
  4. Tap the pin to select the gas station. You’ll see a bubble with information about that specific gas station.
  5. Tap ‘Get gas now’ to navigate to the gas station.
  6. Pay with the physical ‘Gas cash back payment card’ linked to your account at the pump and see your earnings in 3-10 days. Digital wallet transactions aren’t eligible for cash back.
Note: The price you see listed per gallon already takes into account the cashback savings.
You’ll pay the full price up front, then get cash back added to your earnings. You can check the cash back amount in your Earnings tab.
Your payment card
You must use a physical, linked gas cash back payment card (debit or credit) in order to get cash back. Transactions made with digital wallets, such as Apple Pay or Google Pay, aren’t eligible for cash back.
You can add a payment card anytime in the ‘Pay and Tax Info’ tab in your app menu.
To get even more cash back, link your Lyft Direct debit card to your account. To get the cash back, you must use your physical Lyft Direct debit card at an eligible gas station. Transactions made with digital wallets aren’t eligible.
You can’t change the payment card info once a transaction is complete. If you update your payment card, cash back rewards will apply for all future transactions with that card.
If you haven’t received your cash back savings after 10 days and your payment information is correct, use the ‘Contact us’ button below for support.
