What is a Fitbit?
If you don’t already own a Fitbit, chances are you’ve heard of them. They are wearable fitness trackers that are popping up on the wrists of just about everyone. I LOVE my Fitbit and can honestly say that it is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I love it so much that I recently bought a refurbished Fitbit scale as well. They sync with a bunch of other fitness related apps and are a great way to keep you mindful of how much you’re moving throughout the day. Fitbit’s come in a range of styles and prices, so you can find one that will fit in your budget. No matter which one you choose I personally think they are worth the money. But, if you’re going to be wearing it anyway, you might as well let it earn money for you.
AchieveMint syncs with your Fitbit and a variety of other fitness apps and will give you points for the activities that you do within those apps every day. You will get points for the steps you take, or weighing yourself on the Fitbit scale. When I first joined the most you could earn was $50. I cashed out with no problem. Since then they have removed the limit. After hitting 10,000 points you can get a $10 reward. They did make it so that it takes a little bit longer to earn points, but it’s a great motivator to watch yourself head toward that payout. If you sign up through my link you can get 250 points to start. Then just link up your Fitbit and any other apps you use to start earning.
Update: AchieveMint will only be accepting new sign ups until 12/31/2016!
If you have a Dick’s in your area and one of their rewards cards this is a great way to earn points towards a reward certificate. Just download their app, and connect your Fitbit. Then when you hit your step goal, open up the app, click Move and let it sync your steps. They also have challenges from time to time that will help you get bonus points.
I do not currently use this app, but I have in the past. This one is a little different because if you don’t use it right, you can lose money. However, if you do, you can do pretty well here. For this one you make a weekly commitment to your health and fitness goals and you place a “bet” on yourself. You use your tracker to verify your activity and if you hit your goals you make the money you bet. If you miss your goal, then you have to pay in what you bet. They pay you when you meet your goal from the money paid in by people who didn’t. If you don’t like losing money this one can be very motivating. You do have to be very careful to sync on this one to verify you’ve hit your goals.
This one I do not use because there isn’t a Walgreens in my area. But if you do this can be a great way to earn more rewards. You can connect your Fitbit as well as other apps and devices to earn points for your activity. After 5000 points you get a $5 gift card. Check out all of the apps you can use right here.
So if you’re thinking about getting a Fitbit, or you already have one, make sure to connect it to some of these other apps to put it to work for you.
