Zero stars would be best 1/5
Don't waste your time. I was able to earn one reward for a $5 gift card and then everything changed. I should be able to get another one now but instead, all of my points are for a stupid sweepstakes. I'm deleting it until things change back.
Junk app 1/5
I wish I could give it zero stars. Now you only get points for the chance to win stupid sweep stakes. Worthless
Use to be such a good app... when they offered gift cards for mileage. Now you are only allowed to enter sweepstakes. Not worth it! Especially if winning the sweepstakes now has similar odds to winning the lottery.
Tracks you for nothing! 1/5
By Lava Tori
Pointless battery drain for no reward! When you actually got gift cards that was awesome, now it's useless!
Was good, till they changed the rewards 1/5
App was good. I let them track my every move using my data and get rewarded with points for gift cards. Then they doubled the amount of points that had to be accrued to get gift cards. Now you get to use your points you earned to enter a bogus drawing that doesn't happen more than likely. All while using my data to track my every move. BS! I'm out, app deleted...

Went to get my gift card and saw they split my points between those and sweepstakes, and found out they discontinued the gift cards. There's no reason to let someone track me by GPS if I'm not going to be able to get something for it.
USE to be a good app ... USE TO 1/5
Before when I downloaded the app it was great . Especially because I do so much driving, being able to redeem for gift cards is a great idea. Well now you can't do that, they've completely changed it to now only being entered into contests that you'll never end up winning!!! Complete BS. Deleted & will never redownload .
Don't bother 1/5
Not worth it. When you received points towards gift cards it was worth running in the background, regardless of how long it took to earn. However, now you just earn points to enter their sweepstakes, so essentially you're never going to receive any type of compensation for use of your phone and data. Not worth using my high speed data for nothing. Nobody wins the sweepstakes anyways. Empty promises and terrible customer service.
Come on, MileUp 2/5
They have changed the app to where you're only able to accumulate points for their sweepstakes entries rather than for gift cards. On the other hand, they DID credit me $250 in gift cards after my car accident (and only took a couple of days), so that was nice.
My other big problem with this app is that it drains my battery. This would probably be a great app for an Uber driver or somebody who will be keeping their phone plugged in while driving.
If I could give it 0 stars, I would! App started out great where you could earn gift cards from driving and now it's just a glorified gambling app! Do not bother installing this app on your phone!
Not Worth The Download 1/5
They no longer let you cash out to gift cards. It's sweepstakes only. Deleting the app. Not worth my time. I never win anything in any sweepstakes so it's pointless for me to continue using the app. Do not download the app.
Deserves 0 stars 1/5
By Every names taken?
This app is unreliable at tracking the miles that were actually driven! My miles only begin to count when I've driven at least 2 miles! I've tried all the "tips" that were told to me when they take a lame attempt to resolve my issues! In spite of these bug fixes nothing has changed. Oh wait the fact that it takes forever to gain a gift card is the only thing that's changed! That and me deleting this waste of a space useless app!
They change the prizes on you constantly and change the points system frequently so that you're unable to redeem points for rewards. Their customer service team is extremely rude as well. When they update their terms and conditions read it before you accept it. If you don't want to accept it but don't want to hit decline, just close the app and renter it. But I wouldn't recommend using it all. It's garbage.
This app used to give out gift cards for having it installed, however, they removed this feature without warning or explanation. Now the app is trash and you can't do anything with it.
Would prefer to leave 0 stars 1/5
This app doesn't deserve a single star. I got it at the suggestion of my husband. We both commute and drive for work. He said it would be great to earn gift cards for all the driving we do. I agreed! However, that's gone. Now it's just points for sweepstakes, which you essentially have no chance of winning. There aren't any guaranteed prizes anymore. They just want your data without rewarding users in any way. Not worth the tracking/battery sucking, when you won't win anything. Do yourself a favor and don't get this app.
No more gift cards 1/5
Only downloaded this app because you could use points to redeem gift cards but now you can only use for sweepstakes and that's only if you win. Who knows if people actually win because they don't say anything. Plus they limit how many times you can enter. Lame
Bring real rewards back!! 1/5
I used to love this app!! $5 gift cards were harder to get! Okay... I let it go... but now every point I get doesn't go towards the gift cards anymore!!! Why? Forget this sweepstakes, just bring back the gift cards!!! Until then 1star....!!!
I would rate this app zero stars if I could. At one point it was good to use since I could redeem for gift cards. Emailed customer service and we can only use points for sweepstakes. I will be deleting the app as this is useless. I will not be using my data for sweepstakes points. Not worth it.
0 stars if I could 1/5
Ive had this app for almost 4 months now and STILL haven't been able to earn a gift card. The app now says I have 4300 points available but when I go to the gift card section, it says only 1509. Don't waste your time on this app. I'm deleting it now.
By Heavenly b
Changed from gift cards to chance of gift cards at the least. What's the point?!
And then I got a new phone and it won't let me get back into my account even though the number never changed. Forget this app!
Do NOT DOWNLOAD
Used to be great 1/5
When app first came out you got gift cards for your driving you got 2 points for each mile and get 5$ card for 1000 points then went to 2000 then 4000 now they give you nothing but a alleged chance for a winning of a drawing. So if that's how you're going to treat people at mile up take your app and your sweepstakes's and take a long walk off a short pier !!
Constantly changing compensation 1/5
I joined in January to earn points for my mileage to go towards earning gift cards. I read reviews where they had increased the amount of points needed to cash in, they doubled it actually. But I joined anyway. I figured it was free for doing what I already do anyway so no biggie. Now it appears they have changed their compensation yet again! Now you can only enter sweepstakes. Uh, no thanks. If you want to track my info, I need something in return. And sweepstakes just aren't rewarding.
New changes terrible, will delete soon 1/5
So I loved this app when I first downloaded it a few months ago. I was even fine with needing 4k points to get $5. Now with the sweepstakes, no way it's worth using my battery and data. If it's not changed back soon, it's bye from me. I hope these guys start listening to their users.
Not worth it 1/5
Anytime you get close to "cashing out" they change their policy to where you need more points. I drive two hours, sometimes more in one day five times a week. Every time I was close to getting enough points for a gift card, they changed it so I would have to get more points. Do not waste your time downloading this app.
Don't bother! 1/5
Like previous post mentioned, they are no longer gifting points, only sweepstakes points. Waste of time unless you want limited sweepstakes entries.
Lies lies lies. They cheat on your points, you don't get gift cards. If you get 4,000 points they'll have you enter a raffle to win a car like come on I'm sure that's not going to happen. If I could give no stars I would.
Deleting this app 1/5
When I first downloaded the app you needed 2000 points to get a $5 gift card, then it changed to 4000 points needed for a $5 gift card. I managed to get 1 $5 Amazon gift card before they decided to change it to "points only". Now all you get are points to enter into a sweepstakes that is impossible to win. The app runs in the background and drains the phone battery. Customer service provides sketchy responses when you send a message. Your best bet is not to download this app.
I think I'm gone. 1/5
I have over 20,000 points...for sweepstakes. I've driven nearly 5000 miles since the end of January and I can't even get a gift card now because I only have 125 points for gift cards. Ugh. So frustrating. I'm just done. What a disappointment and a total waste.
Garbage Don't download 1/5
All points earned now only go to sweepstakes and they privately notify winners so who knows if anyone actually gets anything. Don't waste your time.
Use to be great now not so much 1/5
No more gift cards. Only some lottery sweepstakes gimmick. Don't waste your time😑
Counts your miles, doesn't give you the points 1/5
Don't download this. You think you're gonna earn free stuff—you're not. It's a scam! It will count your miles but it won't give you the points. Guys, face the facts. Nothing in life is free, and this is NOTHING
Used to be great 1/5
By Karlie k
Not worth it anymore. Took away the gift card option which is ridiculous. Will be deleting.
Don't even bother 1/5
Just like everyone here has said the points went from 2k for a $5 gift card to 4K.. which, whatever it's a business. HOWEVER !! I joined one of the challenges requiring you to drive 500 miles and NEVER got my points, I contacted MileUp and they did not help at all. Now to top things off, I had over 8k points, was going to redeem them for a $10 gift card, and what do you know!!!! Some of my points just DISAPPEARED!!... getting my gift card and Goodbye Mile Up. Waste of my phone space, battery, data, and time. This app is Garbage
No reward 1/5
This app wants to track your every move and run in the background for free basically. It's not like anyone was making big bucks off the app when you'd get 2 points for every mile and had to save up to 4000 points just for a $5 gift-card. Now you basically have to give them data and data for free since now you can only use your points for a CHANCE to win something. Like that's ever going to happen! When I asked customer service about it they made it clear they don't care what users think or want. They're not taking votes. Rude! Here is the reply I received:
Going forward you will be earning sweep points only. Gift points will NOT increase and no gift points will be awarded.
We are not taking requests for a choice of sweep and/or gift points - it is sweep points only.
The current gift points can be swapped for sweep points or soon you will have the opportunity to cash the points you have for a gift card.
Big 0 1/5
This app is a scam!! Don't waste your time! I submitted an accident report almost 2 months ago and have not received anything for it. I have sent them numerous messages and they continue to ignore me!!! Big SCAM!!!
I loved this app, but then... 1/5
I loved this app and referred a lot of people to it. Now weeks after I got near 50 people to add the app stating it offered gift cards from driving, the gift card option is taken away. While I understand this is a free app, I feel a lot of people were tricked into downloading it, using a lot of data and battery power just to bait and switch on us. I now look bad to those I referred because they completely changed the rewards system. Not amused.
Used to be nice. 1/5
Now this app is a joke.
Doesn't capture ALL your miles 1/5
I drive the same miles everyday but even after giving the app time to sync with WiFi, it doesn't capture my 313 miles, only randomly 206 or 238 miles. The excuse when I asked why it wasn't getting my miles was that I must be going through "dead zones"...Yet it captured the first 3 days I drove 313 miles for work. What a shame...ALSO As of March 2nd, all points earned can be used for sweepstake entries only. This balance will continue to go up the more you drive, share with friends, or win challenges. Your gift card points total will no longer increase, but can be used to redeem gift cards or you can swap them for sweepstakes points, which we'll double and give you more points to enter sweepstakes.
Please read before you install 1/5
So they changed it now where we can't claim gift cards even on points we already had and now we have to use our points to enter sweepstakes. I figured I would use up my points before I delete the app. When I went to check to see if I won the website that is supposed to show who wins the weekly drawings doesn't even exist! At this point this company wants to just track our location and keep tabs on us. Watch out!
App is HORRIBLE 1/5
If I can give 0 stars I would. They don't deserve the 1 star. Gift cards before the sweepstake was awesome but now you can't win anything. When you have a question and email them, they don't respond at all! You have to keep emailing them to finally give you somewhat decent reply. Their answers are always short and never what you asked about. Super rude and when you you tell them something they just ignore your emails after. Will never be satisfied with their customer service.
Not worth it 1/5
I installed this app the middle of January and since then the point system has changed and then the rewards have changed. I understand the points have to occasionally increase but I have no desire to allow an app to use data so that I can enter a sweepstakes that I most likely will not win. Taking away the gift card option to me was not a very good move on their part. I will definitely uninstall this app! I also noticed that they changed the version or something like that so the older reviews don't show. Be sure to click on the older reviews to see how people are less than satisfied!
Needs to be fixed 5/5
Love the app but the "miles driven" is frozen. PLEASE FIX
Hate the update 1/5
So now instead of driving to earn points for gift cards, you are forced to use your points for sweepstakes, which guarantees you no benefits. I looked forward to getting gift cards for driving. I'm disappointed in the direction this app is going. It had so much potential.
They took away the gift card option. What's the point now? I don't want a chance to win something I want to actually earn something! So stupid
NO LONGER USING THIS APP 1/5
This is the message I received from the app company today... "As of March 2nd, all points earned can be used for sweepstake entries only. This balance will continue to go up the more you drive, share with friends, or win challenges. Your gift card points total will no longer increase, but can be used to redeem gift cards or you can swap them for sweepstakes points, which we’ll double and give you more points to enter sweepstakes."
Since your points are not available to be used for gift cards, and only sweepstakes's, I will be deleted my account and app and will not be using this app again.
THIS APP IS A SCAM 1/5
By YOU ALL ARE SCAMS
I HAD BEEN COLLECTING POINTS FOR ATLEAST 2 WEEKS THEN THEY ADD SWEEPSTAKES AND GIVEAWAYS AND NOW MY POINTS DONT EVEN GO TOWARDS GIFT CARDS YOU ALL ARE SCAMMING US STOP IT
No reward 1/5
They track your data and drain phone battery just so you enter sweepstakes. Wow, it's compatible to winning a lottery, little to zero chance!
With this app your data is being used for no reward😓
To those who think they are getting something from this app for "free" - you are clearly not realizing you are giving somebody your data, your phone is draining battery very fast because of this app and you get a small chance to win something... you are very naive and the app producers are using you. The positive reviews are either people who work there or those people are really this clueless. The winners were never posted, who knows if they even exist?!
Don't bother 1/5
At first, I thought this was a cool idea - I share some data and get something in return. Then it became increasingly difficult to obtain goals, but they were still getting the data they wanted. I was informed that points will no longer be awarded for gifts and in two weeks those points will be cashed out. This has definitely turned into a one-sided transaction.
When I first got this app I was excited and was able to redeem points for several gift cards. Even when they notified me of changing the point system they doubled my points which was fine but now all you can do is enter into sweepstakes that we all know no one will actually win. I am very disappointed in this app. I get tracked enough with the gps on my truck and will be deleting this app because it's no longer worth it to me to be tracked by this app without the original function of this app!!!
