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.
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.
The Rite Aid’s in my area have all been bought out by Walgreens so I just signed up for this one to earn points in advance of the change. After 5000 points you get a $5 gift card. Learn more here.
OK this one doesn’t require a Fitbit, but it fits with the fitness theme here so I thought I’d add it in. I don’t know a lot about Sweatcoin because I just started using it, but it needs access to info on your phone to keep track of your steps. Your steps are then converted to Sweatcoins which can be used to purchase things in their store. So far it looks like it could take a long time to earn enough to buy anything, but I’m just getting started so I’m not sure. Either way, there doesn’t seem to be much effort involved so it might be worth checking out.
