Did you know you could make money with FitBit? The fitness activity tracker is actually a great way to make some extra money and earn rewards and prizes.
No, you’re not going to get rich, but being able to earn money just for walking is a great motivator, and your Fitbit will at least be able to pay for itself! I have paid for my FitBit many, many times over! Check out these helpful tips below on how to make money with FitBit.
How to Make Money with FitBit (and earn rewards and prizes!)
Achievemint is a website that gives you points based on healthy activities. 50,000 points equals a $50 Visa card. Achievemint can be used either on a desktop or an iPhone (you don’t have to have an iPhone).
You also don’t have to have a Fitbit to use Achievemint; I actually have several devices synced up to it, like Facebook and Twitter, MapMyWalk, even Cessation Nation (the app I use for quitting smoking). If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter and wonder why I use the hashtags #health and #fitness all the time, it’s because I get points towards my Achievemint balance when I do!
It has taken me nearly a year to accumulate my $50. But the good part is, all I have to do is connect my devices, sit back, and wait. There is no real work or maintenance involved.
FitStudio is a site created by K-Mart and Sears. Join FitStudio, and connect your Fitbit or other tracking device. Work out and start earning points. Points=money. You can use the money at K-Mart or Sears, both online and in the store.
This has probably been the most lucrative site for me. I think every week-two weeks I earn around $10, but it has to be spent quickly because it expires (there went my initial plan to build up and earn a treadmill).
I have bought a lot of things with my little earnings, though! I’ve bought medicine balls, sports bras, weights, clothes, a cast iron burger press, a silicone oven mitt, and today, a pair of capri pants.
The downside of it is, you need to check your points semi-regularly, and with the number of brick-and-mortar K-Mart and Sears stores ever-dwindling, it can be quite a drive if you want to do their free store pickup.
Walgreens Balance Rewards
If you have a Walgreens near you, chances are, you already use a Walgreens Balance Rewards card. You earn points in the store from buying items, and points=money off your totals. 5000 points=$5. If you have a FitBit or other activity tracker, though, you can earn even more points! Just sync up your FitBit or other device and earn away. I find earning kind of slow on this one, especially compared to FitStudio, but points add up quickly for others!
After joining Leap4Life, you sync up your FitBit or other fitness device, set goals, join events and challenges. You earn FitWell points, which can be redeemed for gift cards. As we mentioned before,
If you compete in events and challenges and earn reward points, you’ll be able to quickly redeem them! You only need 2500 FitWell points for a $25 gift card! That only takes most users a few months! Find out more on how to make money with Leap4Life!
EarndIt was recently absorbed by Higi, but I think it works the same as it once did. Sign up for Higi, sync up your device, join challenges, and earn rewards. You either earn discounts to other fitness sites, or you can cash in your points for charity.
They cash my points in for charity, but you can also join challenges and either win prizes for being the best or being one of the random winners chosen. I once won a $200 certificate to eBoost by joining a challenge! We also know Higi has something to do with RiteAid, but I’m not sure if it equates to any kind of store discounts (if anyone wants to clear this up for me, please feel free!).
Once there was a great site called EveryMove that had really awesome free items you could earn. But for some reason, they cut the rewards and updated their app so that it was horrible! I hate that; it was one of my favorites before.
Do you use any sites to earn money with your FitBit or activity tracker? What do you use? I would love to update this with any current items!

organic food has exploded in recent years, but that growth has yet to result in lower prices. Organic food is so expensive, in fact, that many consumers aren’t willing to give it a try, even if it is much healthier.
Whole Foods has become one of the most successful grocery stores of all time based on its organic focus, but the prices are so high that the store has faced significant backlash over the past few months and is derisively called “Whole Paycheck”.
Given the narrative surrounding how costly organic food is, you’d think there would be no way to use coupons and save money on it. In reality, that couldn’t be further from the case. Most people are unaware of how many <a href=” />ways there are to get discounts on organic foods. Guest poster Jason from Dealspotr is here to end that knowledge gap! eating healthy without going over your grocery budget. Luckily, today’s guest poster Tina from A Budget-Friendly Life is here to give us all some helpful tips! Research reveals that one in three people feel they cannot afford to buy healthy food. Approximately 25 million people said they eat badly because they are short on cash. Here are some tips to help you eat healthy on a tight budget! REM-Fit Fitness Activity Tracker comes with two bands and a belt clip. The bands have an advantage over the FitBit bands because they have an extra secure loop to keep it in place!
Having that belt clip for treadmill days is nice too; we don’t always use our arms to walk! The REM-Fit Fitness Activity Tracker is splash-proof, but it’s not water-proof.
Because is it a smaller, lesser-known device, it doesn’t sync up to apps like LoseIt, Walgreens, Achievemint, or other sites where you can make money from tracking your steps!
