In today’s world, everything is tracked whether it’s your social accounts, accounting balances, or even your current meal. But did you know that you could make cash simply by working out? It’s true! Check these apps that will put more money into your pockets just by using your connected Fitbit or smart device!
How To Make Money Getting Fit
This one we find to be more of a betting app. The premise is that you make sure you lose enough weight based on a placed bet you made on yourself. If you don’t reach your goal, you lose the money and there are no refunds for this app. Compete as a team and be more motivated to lose weight together! You’ll be tested by a real-life employee of the Healthywage when it comes time to weigh in your goals.
This app is more for the healthy savvy and those who like to log their fitness goals. Log these stats to continue to earn rewards:
- Eating (Meals)
- Tweeting (Twitter)
- Steps through Walking and Running
With AchieveMint, you have to be pretty active in reporting your fitness and healthy eating habits, but if you do, you can redeem each action for points eligible for neat stuff, including money! AchieveMint is a great option because it’ll hook up with stats made from most popular fitness apps like Strava, Endomondo, MapMyRun and many more!
Didn’t think you’d see this one on here? Well, Walgreen’s mission is to make sure you are healthy, keeping up with that strategy is their reward system. If you are a regular Walgreen’s shopper, you would have probably been prompted to sign up for their reward program. Either that or every time you are at the register you get asked your Balance Rewards number. Did you know that if you link your Rewards Card to your Fitbit, you earn more points redeemable for Walgreen’s products? Well, now you do!
We’ve tested our Sweatco.in and although we love the idea of reaping Sweatcoins and fractions of the coins through steps, it takes forever to get an actual reward. Still, it’s a unique app with a large growing community.
For every 1,000 steps outside (you have to be outside since it uses GPS) you’ll get .95 Sweatcoin. We don’t know how much this is in US dollars. Other drawbacks are that it’s a heavy resource app and requires to be on most times. Sadly, we don’t recommend this one just yet.
5: Charity Miles
If you have the spirit of giving back and want to get fit at the same time, then this is the app for you! You can download it for Android and iOS and donate each mile you run to charity. This app also uses GPS so it’ll be one of those heavy resource apps, but should probably be turned off once you stop running. According to Charity Miles, the money is generated from large advertisers like Johnson and Johnson through banners ads on the app, so it makes sense that these dollars will, in turn, be donated when you are running the app.
