I love my steps counter; I like knowing how far I've walked or how many flights of stairs I have climbed. It helps keep me in check with my weight loss goal. Did you know you can combine your weight loss and how to make money online goals? Yep, there are so many Fitbit rewards out there.
You can make money with Fitbit and other activity trackers. It's true. Read on to find out who is paying you to be active.
Fitbit Rewards – 10 Ways to Make Money with Your FitBit (and Other Activity Trackers)
Something to remember, you will not get rich quick with these sites. They are simply a reward for something you already do. The money you are passing up for something that you are doing anyway. You can use all the sites together so you can maximize your rewards too.
Walgreen’s Balance Rewards Points
Connecting your Fit Bit to your Walgreens Reward card will earn you more points to use at the store to score free items. So here is how to do it.
- Head to the Walgreens website and sign to your Walgreens Reward account or create one for free.
- Click on account home to get to your main account page.
- Look for the Your Balance Rewards for healthy choices option. If this is your first time clicking the link, it will automatically add this option or your car for you.
- Click on the exercise tab.
- Just under the row where you clicked the exercise tab to the right you will see an add activity option or connect device option.
- The first time I went to add activity I had to do a text verification on my account.
You can manually enter activity if you use something like your iPhone app to track steps and miles. Or if you can connect one of several of the apps they have to help you track your steps as well. If you choose to add manually, your steps keep in mind you can only go back 7 days so make sure you are adding your steps to your account weekly.
To connect any fo the apps that track your steps etc. on your phone you will need to have the Walgreens app on your phone and they give you the run down on how to connect them.
Ok now on tot he details how much can you actual earn? Well here is the breakdown.
What it comes down to is you are earning about 2¢ a mile which isn't bad for something you are doing already. If you track your weight and other exercises you can make even more.
The AchieveMint site is pretty easy. You use on the app on your phone, and you can connect to other apps you use such as FitBit or the Health App. You can earn up to 80 points a day for walking and other exercises you do. Plus if you connect your social accounts like Twitter and Instagram and share healthy articles you can earn about 6 points a day. This is the equivalent of about 8¢ a day. They offer all sorts of bonuses and ways to earn extra as well. Once you reach 10,000 points, you can cash out for $10.
Shop Your Way and FitStudio
Ok, this one is pretty neat! Head over to shop your way and become my client here. This allows me to send you great coupons and point while using the program. Then head offer to the FitStudio and sign up. Make sure to fill out your profile and add your Shop Your Way Rewards number (you can get one by becoming my client).
With FitStudio, you will earn Shop Your Way Rewards to use at Sears and Kmart. Think free groceries or save up to have a Free Christmas.
Leap 4 Life
The Leap 4 Life app lets you connect and earn points for being active and reaching your goal. You can cash out these point for gift cards. 2,500 point equals a $25 gift card.
Bounts is a company based out of the UK and sponsored by Oxford University. You can use your points to get vouchers (think gift cards) to your favorite places such as Amazon.
Every Move is a bit different then others I mention here. While you still earn for the basic things you do. Every Move allows your employer or insurance company to connect with your account and MATCH your rewards. More and more companies are using this service to encourage their employees to get healthy and stay healthy. Why would your employer do this you might ask? Healthier employees mean lower insurance premiums, which saves them money!
Once you create your free account, click the Apps and Devices tab to connect your Fit Bit or other activity tracker/ App. Connect your devices and go. You earn points for walking and exercise along with checking into healthy places such as gyms or events like a 5k.
Now unlike some of the other apps where you earn cash, here you will only earn point to use on discounts. Which isn't bad because saving money is like adding money to the bank.
Higi is another app that will allow you to earn discounts. This one has a twist. With Higi, you can also donate your point to charity if that's your thing. Like the other apps, you sign up and link your accounts/ trackers and rack up points.
If you choose to donate your reward to charity in the Higi app, you may be interested in Charity Miles. Every mile you walk or run will earn you money for the charity of your choice. Charities like ASPCA and Wounded Warrior Project.
This app is one I don't personally use, but you can earn from it. Pact App is where you make a pact on how much you will work out, track or food or eat. You then place money on this pact and check in daily/ weekly. If you keep your pact, you keep your money plus win some extra money. If you don't keep your pact, you lose your money. That is why I don't use the app. I have 4 kids; I blog, and I don't always have time to check in and some days I just don't have enough time to sleep much less work out while another day I will have extra time to work. I don't want to bet money I will mostly likely lose because my days are anything but routine.
The Healthy Wage site is another like Pact App. You place a wager on how much weight you plan to lose and in what time frame. The more weight you lose over a certain time frame, the more money you can win. Keep in mind the bets are a minimum fo $20, and it's a per month bet so if you wager to lose $30 pound in 6 months and you bet $20 you are paying $20 a month for 6 months.
Know of any other sites I can add to the list? Please let me know below.
I also want to point out one of my favorite ways to make money at home is via blogging! See what you need to know to get started blogging.
