Often changes rewards system and it gets worse every time
Old version please! 1/5
They updated the app and removed the gift card option for sweepstakes that no one wins.. This app is trash now.
Not happy with Mileup app 1/5
I was in an accident and as soon as it was verified they put $250 in points on my account then they delegated my account and I never got to use it at all. All lies
Worthless junk. 1/5
Used to be pretty good... but now they have these lame sweepstakes. You basically get nothing.
The app itself has become junkware. When you can actually log in (I can't any more, the codes they send by SMS don't work) the app is unresponsive. Total waste of time and battery and data.
There's no reason to download. 1/5
I'm uninstalling after I write this review. DON'T DOWNLOAD!
It was good before, but now.... 1/5
Updates are worst
Great idea at first. 1/5
This app was awesome a couple months ago! 2,000pts (1,000 miles) got you a $5 gift card. I had almost made it to 2,000 points when they upped it to 4,000 pts earns a $5 gift card. Now, since the update, you can no longer use your points for gift cards, but have to use them for sweepstakes that no one is ever going to win. Such a great idea, turned into a load of crap!!
Horrible Update 1/5
You guys had a good thing going but then it seems giving the gift cards either became too pricey or you guys got really cheap! This app is a waste of space on my phone now, I used to tell everyone to install it and how great it is but now that you can only buy points and enter sweepstakes I'll be deleting!
HORRIBLE UPDATE- What did you guys do?! 1/5
You used to be able to redeem the points for a gift card. Then they added sweepstakes and were putting all of my points toward that. Then it just said I had to update again. This new update won't even let me open the app. I get an error 500 code. Uninstalled.
Dont do it 1/5
Finally got tired of my battery dying by lunch everyday so i cash out for a $5 amazon gift card and deleted the app. The gift card didnt even work
This app started off great. For only a few weeks. At the beginning, every mile you drive was actually going towards you redeeming a gift card. For the past few months, every mile up now drive can only be used in sweepstakes drawings. They will not allow your miles to go towards gift cards anymore. Not to mention, their customer service is non existent. This app is a complete waste of your time.
No more gift cards?? 👎🏼 1/5
Started out as a decent app but the new update is terrible. Changing everything to sweepstakes was the worst idea. Might be interested if it changed back to gift cards. Deleting this app for now.
By Beans (:
I need someone to contact me regarding my gift card. I tried to redeem and it said error and took my points without giving me gift card!
Loved using the app until the update! 1/5
Very simple and straight forward......until the newest update.......why would I pay for points if I'm going to spend them on gift cards? That make no sense at all. I would give no stars if I could!
Crap app 1/5
App will not give me points for the mileage I drive and the points I did have I lost when I tried to redeem them! When I click on redeem award, The app crashes. Customer service will not respond to email questions so don't waste your time with this garbage!
The support is horrible. They never get back to you. The codes don't send well and once they do, your account is reset before you can earn your reward. I wish I could give them negative stars as stupid as that sounds. I have tried and tried to get my account back and have them reinstate my miles and points, and they continue to ignore my emails by generating the normal "we'll get back to you in 48 hours" jargon. I'm deleting the app and strongly urge anyone to skip this one and find a more reputable one.
I Echo What Every Other Disappointed User is Saying 1/5
This is a waste of battery usage. They keep changing the rules to benefit them. No more points given for gift cards after they couldn't stop high mileage drivers from racking up points. The rewards are a joke. You have less than a snowballs chance in hell of winning anything. I'm done.
Not worth it anymore 1/5
Save your data. You'd have to do 5 years worth of driving to get a $5 gift card.
Bring giftcards back!!! 1/5
Giftcards was the point. Great job, you ruined great app and now you will remain at one star until you fix this!!
Bad move 1/5
First, MileUp erased over 5,000 points from my account. They never responded to my messages. Then they eliminated all gift cards. Bad move MileUp. I will be deleting and I see a lot of others will be too. You've just killed this app. It's useless and not worth the drain on my battery.
What kind of update is this??? 1/5
I give it -5 stars if I could. Got to cash out for one gift card and then it switched to these stinking sweepstakes which I've yet to have won ANYTHING. Don't waste your time ladies and gents. This app has seen its end to being one of the best driving apps out there. Good bye, mile up.
Don't bother 1/5
Originally offered gift cards. Now they do a sweepstakes type deal but it's the end of April and they still haven't picked winners for the first round of sweepstakes which happened in March. I had a question about the app and no one ever responded back to me. Total waste of time, battery, and data. 👎👎👎
Deleted it 1/5
Loved the app until they took away the gift cards. Deleted it from my phone.
This app was great before the sweepstakes update. I'm done.
Good Idea gone Bad 1/5
As mentioned by other reviewers, I was enticed by gift cards, but now the only enticement is sweepstakes which I have tried to view the winners list and have been unable to, questioning if there have been any winners at all. Also they cap your ability to enter sweepstakes. I currently have over 19000 points I cannot use while they still benefit from collecting my driving data.
Avoid this app
No more giftcards! 1/5
Put them back😞
If we can't redeem points for gift cards why in the hell are y'all still offering them?
We want old way!!!!!!!😡😡😡😡😡 1/5
We want old way back and only gift card hope y'all user stand pleas give us back gift cards
Inflated point system again 1/5
Congrats Mileup, you took a great app and turned it to 💩. What could be a 5 star app is a 1 star app (which I'm sure is only because people can't leave 0 stars.) No one wants to be entered into sweepstakes that probably aren't even real. Officially deleting this app today. Good riddance.
Used to be good. Now terrible 1/5
I joined this app to be able to earn and redeem gift cards. I redeemed one and they switched to sweepstakes only. No more gift cards. Horrible change. I've deleted the app.
What a Joke 1/5
This app is an absolute joke. They rob you for your data and don't pay up. They keep coming up with ways to not pay for the data/information you give them. They continuously change the points needed to get a gift card. Don't waste your time or get your hopes up with this one.
Not worth it 1/5
You can't redeem your points for gift cards anymore. Not sure why they changed the system, but I don't like it. Like the other reviews have said, not worth the data/battery life to use.
Can't redeem 1/5
I have 9k+ points and I'm unable to redeem them for gift cards. Yes. I know they're separate. I had 3k towards sweeps, and 9k for gift cards.
New update is horrible 1/5
Ever since they updated the app it's horrible. Why are more than half of my points going towards sweepstakes that nobody wins. I should have the choice of what I want to use it on. It also doesn't calculate mileage correctly. Unfortunately I will be deleting this app.
No longer rewarding 1/5
This app used to be pretty cool, it gave you points to use for GIFT CARDS, but now with the sweepstakes option, the points that would've went toward gift cards get taken by the sweepstakes. Not as good as it once was. It would be so much better if you could take the sweepstakes points and combine them with gift card points instead of having to round up with actual money to get gift cards.
Sweepstakes ruined it 1/5
Should've kept the gift card option. I have no interest in entering sweepstakes with unbelievable odds of winning. Deleted app.
No gift cards anymore 1/5
I was so happy about finally earning a $5 gift card and then they switch it to only sweepstakes's. I've been waiting a while now for them to let us "purchase the remainder" ..so I can cash out.
Now I have well over 4K points for sweepstakes and I'm 400 points away from my $5 gift card but I have to pay for the rest of the points? No thanks. Why not let us transfer remaining points?
I got this to get gift cards for driving. Now all they give out is "sweepstakes" entries. Deleted it.
No gift cards. 1/5
(Update 2) MileUp now only offers points towards sweepstakes, and existing points in the gift card section require money to round up. What a joke! They also have been verifying winners for almost a month now. As far as I can see, no one has won anything on sweepstakes. I'm going to keep entering the sweepstakes, but what a joke. Gift cards were a sure thing. Way to turn a great idea on it's head.
(Update) MileUp now requires you to attain 4000 points for a gift card, or the equivalent of 2000 miles. What a horrible joke.
This app isn't accurate in it's mileage tracking. I reached out to support with screenshots of another application that reliably tracks and reports trips and was shot back with a canned general support response message.
I also reached out about several trips that were stuck in processing. I got the same canned message and have yet to get an actual explanation on what's going on with the app.
I'm logging hundreds of miles for these folks, and I'm getting paid pennies on the dollar. Can't complain about an app that's willing to fork over gift cards for travel data, but for the consumption of data and storage on my device, I expect at least halfway decent operation.
I also referred a friend and have yet to see those credits roll in. What a lousy app from a company that prides itself being in business since the 70's.
Absolutely useless after this last update. Not worth the storage space on my phone anymore. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Fix it 1/5
Fix the app now as you have not given me my almost 1000 miles you are cheating me out of now they don't even respond to messages
Battery drainer 1/5
I'm probably repeating what everyone else is saying. When this app was first introduced, the incentive to have them track my location seemed to be worth it. Now, there seems to be no real benefit to the consumer. Only to the company so they can track your data for their use. While I'm sure they think the sweepstakes was a cheaper payout for them, they don't publicly announce the winners. So it's safe to say I'll be deleting this app soon. Good luck to the rest of you!
Bad app 1/5
It doesn't give you reward at all. You might get the points, but it doesn't allow you to get the gift card. You can only use your points for "contest". Horrible and deceitful app. I don't recommend it at all.
Don't waste your data 1/5
So this was an amazing app, I recommended it to friends and family!
Then they changed the offers. Now all you can do is get sweepstake points which is.... meh. All this does now is waste data and not give you the correct points even though those points don't even get you anything anymore.
Go back to the old version 1/5
To the person who stated others must've not read... Clearly YOU did not read it either. Yes, those who had the app before the update still had their points and could get the gift cards. However, starting March 3rd all the points you get will NOT be added to that option. How ever many points you had up until March 3rd was it, you could not add anymore to it. The rest was for the sweepstakes. That is when I deleted the app. I got my last gift card and then doubled my left over points and joined some sweepstakes, but then deleted it because I didn't feel a use for it anymore. I wasn't getting money and sweepstakes with millions of entries I know the chances of winning those.
Update made this app pointless 1/5
Points only goto sweepstakes now and won't even let you cash out the pints you had my case over 10k
Bait and Switch 1/5
I've been MileUp user since Jan 31st and I can confirm this is a classic bait and switch. Originally MileUp offered you gift cards for participating. Now you can only enter "sweepstakes" with no verifiable winners. For contests that ended weeks ago there are still no list of "winners" posted on the website.If it walks like a scam, talks like a scam, sounds like a scam then it's a scam; uninstalled.
Got this app because I saw some people on social media promoting it, but after 3 days of driving 70 miles a day, I have earned nothing. I guess those people just rely on the referral bonus. Deleting.
Update is BS! 1/5
They alter how the points can be redeemed without warning! It's not worth it for just dumb sweepstakes all the time. If they don't fix this, I'm deleting it.
Horrible I'm uninstalling 1/5
They updated this crap so many times, it went from 1,000 to redeem to 4,000 points and now they switched it to sweepstakes, I use to love doing the weekly challenges but now they can keep there app #uninstalled
