How to make Money using your Activity Tracker

Besides all the syncing issues I'm having with my Fitbit Surge lately, I still wear it every day. I'm just hoping one fine day all the notifications and the syncing will go back to normal.



Anyhow... A couple of weeks ago I've discovered a way to make your steps count TWICE - fitness AND money wise. Today I want to share HOW:





Walgreens is my go to pharmacy round here, and I sure buy most of my cosmetics and stuff over there, too. I've installed the Walgreens app to manage my prescriptions, and played with it for a little bit to check out all the features. I've discovered the "Healthy Choices" section. You can connect your Fitbit device (any!), and turn your steps into Balance Rewards - means cash to spend at Walgreens!

It works with a whole bunch of activity trackers and apps, like:
  • Jawbone
  • RunKeeper
  • WebMD
  • My Fitness Pal


On your app, under "Prescriptions & Health" there's currently a button saying "Getting healthy in 2016? We'll reward you for it!". When you click on this, you will be sent to another page, showing all the possible ways to earn Bonus Reward points. If you choose Fitbit, it might not show the Surge. I just selected another model (Flex) and it works perfectly fine. Keep scrolling to find your tracking device.

If you start using other options, like quit smoking (click HERE if you want to know how), or tracking your other activities, you can earn even more points.

5000 Points turn into $5. Keep walking/running, and your next spa day at home will be free - and well deserved ;o)

So far I'm just rolling with the Fitbit connection, and it works well for me!
