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?

Now there is. On Tuesday, GetUpside launched service in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County, where more than 400 gas stations are offering exclusive deals through the app.

How does it work? With the free GetUpside app, users see discounted prices from dozens of nearby gas stations – deals offering up to 25 cents cash back per gallon. Users can pick their station, pump and pay using a credit or debit card, and then upload a photo of their receipt to the GetUpside app. The cash back savings accumulate in users’ online accounts and can be cashed out at any time via check or PayPal.
