I have a Fitbit Zip. I love it. I wear it every day.
I love it even more now that it helps me earn money with every step I take.
So if you have a Fitbit or another wearable fitness device, here’s how to earn money just by using it. Seriously. This last month, I used $10 at Walgreens in points, earned $7 from the Pact App, and bought ALL of this at Sears: a camisole, a necklace/earring set, a pair of earrings, a chip clip set, and a spatula.
….just by linking my Fitbit to these rewards programs.
Fitbit Rewards Programs to Earn Easy Money
The Pact app allows you to commit to a number of workouts per week (at least 3 required…I do 4 per week). Then you use your Fitbit (or you can use other apps like RunKeeper, check into your gym, or use the app to log a workout physcially) to log your workouts. Days with over 10,000 steps automatically count as a workout in Pact. Then, when you hit your pact each week, you earn money. This money can be transferred into your Paypal account for you to use. It’s great! On average, I earn around $1-2 a week, which doesn’t seem like much, but once you link your Fitbit (or other device) to the app, you don’t have to do anything to earn the money! Below is my Pact for this week. Nailed it!
Fit Studio is a Shop Your Way rewards program for fitness. You link your device and earn Shop Your Way Rewards (you can spend them at Sears or KMart, among other places). Now, the downside is the points expire pretty quickly. I just about have $10 each week to spend at Sears…but there are PLENTY of items under $10 that I can use. It’s easy to link your account, and then you earn for things like burning 100 calories, going a mile, working out 20 minutes…and more! My weekly rewards total is below. I monitor my points using the Shop Your Way app, so it’s super easy to keep up with your earnings!
Walgreens Balance Rewards
This rewards program earns you money to spend at Walgreens. You can either create a Walgreens Balance Rewards account just for this, or if you already have one, you can add your Fitbit or other device. Just go to the Steps portion of their Balance Rewards for healthy choices program, connect your device, and earn points! There are limitations, such as you can only earn 1,000 points per month, with a max of 20 points per day for fitness activities. But, earning money is earning money…even if there are point caps. 5,000 points equals $5! This is my activity log for the Walgreens Balance Rewards from just using my Fitibit (and listing some purchases I made!).
EveryMove is a health rewards program that lets you earn points in many ways, including fitness devices. Some insurance companies and employers also match your points (mine doesn’t.). You set up your account, link your Fitbit and earn points. When I signed up, it actually took older FitBit posts from the last 2 months. I earned 300 points in those 2 months. I haven’t been a user very long, so the only “con” I have on my list is that most of the rewards are discount codes and such. But if you are shopping for something, you can earn some pretty great discounts. Below are some of my activities from this last week.
This program helps motivate you by giving you points for workouts, which you can redeem for products or you can donate that money to charity. I just heard about this one and signed up….so I’m not an experienced user yet. But it looks promising. Below is a sample of some of the charitable rewards they offer.
So there ya go. If you have a Fitbit or other fitness device, go sign up and start earning money!!
