March 5, 2024

Washington, D.C., March 5, 2024 — Today, Upside unveiled a partnership with Chime, extending access to Upside's cash back offers to millions of Chime members within the Chime app. Chime members can now take advantage of Upside's personalized cash back promotions at thousands of food and fuel locations nationwide. Earned cash back is automatically credited to Chime members' checking accounts as part of the new Chime Deals™ offering. Deals include up to 11% cash back on groceries, 22¢/gal cash back on fuel, and 24% cash back at restaurants.  

“We’re always working to maximize our impact on the people we serve, and partnerships like this one with Chime are a win-win for both consumers and retailers,” said Alex Kinnier, Upside co-founder and CEO. “Now Chime members can get more from dollars spent directly in their mobile banking app, and participating retailers are able to serve new customers and earn incremental profit.”  

By providing the opportunity for members to earn cash back on everyday purchases, Chime Deals furthers Chime’s mission to unite everyday people to unlock their financial progress. Beyond the earning advantages for Chime members, the partnership with Upside extends benefits to participating retailers as well. Upside’s strategic marketing and API partnerships, exemplified by the Chime Deals offering, have significantly broadened access to Upside offers. This expansion enables participating retailers to connect with more users, driving transactions in-store that are both attributable and profitable.

The Upside Partner Platform is a series of application program interfaces (APIs) that enable partners to provide Upside’s personalized promotions to their users in their own app environment. Learn more about Upside’s partnerships at
