How To Earn Money With Your Fitbit

By  | 

Fitness trackers are very popular these days. They are encouraging everyone to move more as well as stand more throughout the day. People love reaching their goals, so fitness trackers are challenging everyone to meet and exceed fitness goals each day. They even offer group challenges that can be completed with your friends! I personally think they are great and my favorite one happens to be the Fitbit.

The Fitbit is a really cool device. It’s very sleek and it has a ton of awesome features. There are reminders to walk at least 250 steps per hour as well as a personal goal setting feature. One Fitbit feature that is unique is the sleep tracker. The Fitbit app breaks down your sleep into stages and wakes you up peacefully with a silent alarm. My favorite non-fitness features are the call, text, and calendar alerts that come right to the Fitbit from your phone. Also, the bands are also interchangeable to match any outfit. This is great for those of us that wear fitness trackers daily.  On top of all of these cool features, I want to show you a few ways to earn money by simply using your Fitbit.

Wellness Initiatives

Many employers these days are encouraging their employees to become healthier as well as prevent illnesses in the future. In order to accomplish this, they offer wellness initiatives and challenges to encourage exercise. My employer recently provided a subsidy for employees to purchase a Fitbit and walk more throughout the day. The program was really neat because each department formed teams and the team with the highest number of steps at the end of the month won a cash prize. This was great for team building as well as making sure that you were walking as much as possible throughout the day. Be sure to check with your employer or insurance company to see if they offer a similar program.

Healthy Wage

Healthy Wage is a website that pays you money for winning wellness challenges. Their most popular challenges are step challenges. One step challenge is to increase your average steps by 25%. While you are required to pay money up front towards “the pot,” as long as your meet your step goals and increase your average steps, you will make your money back. The winners split the money in the pot at the end of the challenge. The current pot for the upcoming challenge is $4,545. This is a great way to use your Fitbit to track your steps and make a bit of extra cash.

Achievemint

Achievemint is a fun way to get paid to be healthy. All you have to do is sign up for an account and connect your Fitbit device. They offer points for walking or other exercises, sleeping, tracking meals, and weighing in daily. These are all things that are easy to track in the Fitbit app. Your information is synced to Achievemint daily and you will be awarded points accordingly. Each time you reach 10,000 points, you’re eligible for a $10 reward. There is no limit to the amount of money that you are able to earn from Achievemint. They also offer a referral program where you earn more points by referring your friends. Please note that you have to be a resident of the United States and at least 18 years old to participate.

Walgreens Balance Rewards

If you shop at Walgreens and use a Fitbit, then this is the perfect program for you. Walgreens rewards their Balance Rewards members for creating healthy habits and making healthy choices. To participate, simply sign up for the program and connect your Fitbit. You will earn points automatically based on the number of steps that you take each day. You will also earn points by doing things like weighing in, checking your blood pressure, and meeting your goals. Walgreens will start you off with 250 points when you connect your Fitbit for the first time. When you are ready to redeem your points, simply head to your local Walgreens and the dollar amount of your earned points will be deducted from your purchase price.

Pact App

Pact is an app that pays you to work out. All you need to do is make a pact to exercise more, then set the amount of money that you will pay other members if you don’t reach your goal. The app uses your Fitbit data and when you reach 10,000 steps for the day, you are given credit for your workout. At the end of the week, all members who have completed their pact are paid their share of money for fulfilling their obligations. You do not pay up front and you are only charged if you do not meet your pact. The money from members that did not meet their pact is divided among the members that completed their pact. This app really helps you reach your goals and adds money to your budget.

Diet Bet

Diet Bet is a program where you bet on yourself to lose a percentage of weight during a predetermined amount of time. For example, you place a bet for $10 stating that you will lose 4% of your weight in four weeks. There is an official weigh-in for all participants of the bet on the start date. Throughout the four weeks, you log your steps, workouts, and unofficial weigh-ins and anyone that loses 4% of their weight will split the money in the pot. The highest pot that I have seen was $22,800. You need to pay up front, but participants that reach their goal weight are typically compensated twice the amount of the initial bet. Diet Bet is a great way to stay motivated and reach your step and fitness goals with your Fitbit each day.

As you can see, Fitbit fitness trackers have the ability to motivate you in multiple ways. The great part about these programs is that you can use all of them at the same time. Who doesn’t want to get healthy while also making money? This is by no means a way to replace your income or get rich, but any money that you earn is a way to motivate yourself to move more daily. I personally love to reach my weekly goals and complete challenges with my family and friends. The money is just an awesome incentive.

Does making money motivate you to stand and move more throughout the day? Let me know in the comments!
