Spark week

Between Monday March 14 at 9AM PT to Monday March 21 at 9:00 AM PT you are able to receive additional bonuses for leveling up to different statuses. Make sure to read here to understand the limited time spark bonus and our additional recommendation on how best to get started during this special opportunity. Spark week occurs approximately every month.

Best Realtor Starter Value

UPX can be purchased (via credit card, paypal or crypto) within Upland, and the best starter value is to spend $50, which equals 50,000 UPX. On your first purchase of UPX, Upland will reward you with an additional 25,000 UPX (upon leveling up to Uplander). In addition, the Upland Guide will buy your first property off of you for 5 times the mint price (a minimum of 10,000 UPX) and up to a maximum sales price of 18,000 UPX (after a 5% Upland service fee, you will receive up to 17,100 UPX). This means on your $50 purchase, you will receive up to an $88.5 value of UPX! Note that you can purchase up to $25,000 in UPX at one time. However, once you surpass the 100,000 UPX net value thresh hold (becoming pro status) you will be unable to purchase FSA properties. The best realtor starter value is the best way to set yourself up for exponential growth with a relatively small initial investment. Click here to see how you can expect to grow. (Purchasing UPX with paypal or crypto can only be done through the web based version of the game, and not the mobile.) Note that this bonus is only applicable for visitors.  Once you become an Uplander, you will not be eligible for this bonus.

NFL Fanatic

Your primary reason for playing Upland is to increase your fan score and collect Legits, and participate in events connected with everything football. It is important to note that you won’t be able to disregard the basic foundation of the game as it pertains to property ownership. Having a place to live (maybe multiple homes) and a car will be extremely useful, if not necessary as more functionality is implemented in the game. By overlooking these factors you might incur higher cost for home rentals or other unknown or hidden costs that haven’t been introduced yet. Remember that Upland is a Metaverse based on the real world. Things like realistic travel times, home rentals, and car degradation are future developments that have yet to be introduced. These things will most certainly affect your gameplay. You might be able to get a head start on collecting your Legits by disregarding these factors, but be mindful when planning for the future.

In order to grow your Upland Legits portfolio, you will require UPX.  Unlike with properties that you can sell on the secondary market (for a nice profit in many cases) and earn annual yield, the same cannot be said for Legits.  In the future you will be able to sell your Legits for UPX or USD, but to start players will only be able to trade one Legit for one Legit with other players.

We are estimating that to get your Legits collection started, one might want to have at least 100 Legits of a single team.   Some of them will be used to combine and trade in for replicas.  Some will be used to trade with other players.  You may even consider having to travel to other cities in order to mint Legits of players on different teams or in different divisions.  This type of collection could cost you over 120,000 UPX, or $120.  This is based off of an average price of of 1200 UPX/Legit. Factor in the need to own some properties, some of which you will likely try to sell to get more UPX to fund purchases of Legits.

For these reasons, the Upland Guide recommends spending $100 as an initial investment. With your first purchase of UPX, you will receive a bonus worth 50,000 UPX. In addition, the Upland Guide will purchase your first property for 30,000 UPX. After a 5% seller fee, you will receive 28,500 UPX. In total, your initial $100 investment will turn into approximately 178,500 UPX. By having a net worth more than 100,000 UPX you miss out on being able to buy FSA properties, but that's OK with a larger net worth!

Note that this bonus is only applicable for visitors.  Once you become an Uplander, you will not be eligible for this bonus.


You want to achieve uplander status fast, but don't want to invest a lot of USD in upland. The minimum UPX purchase is $5, and this will help you reach uplander status. On your first UPX purchase, Upland will reward you with an additional 2,500 UPX (once you level up to Uplander). This 50% bonus holds true for all other amounts of UPX that you can purchase up to $100. It is important to choose wisely, because the additional 50% boost can be extremely helpful in growing quickly. This is why we recommend the best realtor starter path.

Note that this bonus is only applicable for visitors.  Once you become an Uplander, you will not be eligible for this bonus.
