If one of your goals is to get in shape and eat healthier, there are plenty of Free apps out there to help you reach your goal. But, did you know that there are quite a few Free apps available that also offer rewards just for being healthy? Check out a few popular apps that offer various benefits…



Here’s how it works: You make a weekly Pact to exercise more or eat healthier. Set the amount of what you’ll pay other Pact members if you don’t reach it. Use the Pact app to track your progress and earn real cash for living healthily, paid by the members who don’t! Go here for more details.



Raise money for charity! Simply turn on the app, choose a charity, and press start. As you walk, run, or bike, the Charity Miles app will track your distance and the money earned. Bikers will earn up to 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners can earn up to 25¢ per mile, all courtesy of corporate sponsors (such as Humana, Johnson & Johnson, Timex Sports and Kenneth Cole). When you’re finished, accept your sponsorship and they’ll send you a note confirming your good work. Go here for more details.



Get Balance Rewards points for setting and achieving goals and daily tracking. Simply log your walk, run, bike ride, weigh-in, blood pressure/glucose reading, or other healthy activity, and you will earn Balance Rewards points that can be redeemed at your local Walgreens (5,000 points equals a $5 reward). Your healthy activity can also be sent automatically if you sync select health and fitness devices & apps. Go here for more details.



Bounts, a British based company that’s also available in the USA, Canada and several other countries, lets you connect your favorite fitness apps and devices (Garmin, RunKeeper and more) to earn “bounts” whenever you walk, run, swim, cycle, gym – every activity earns you bounts. For most devices/apps, you must take as little as 7,000 steps a day or 20 minutes of continued exercise from your connected apps. Plus, you can earn nice rewards such as genuine cash gift vouchers from big brands and local stores. Go here for more details.



Higi is a free and easy way to keep tabs on your health and wellness information. Your higi score is a measure of your recent activity, so the more active and engaged you are within higi the higher you score. Higi Stations are located in select retail pharmacies and grocery stores (such as Whole Foods, Rite Aid, H-E-B and Publix) and will measure your weight, BMI, pulse blood pressure. However, you can also track your progress with the Free Higi App and you can connect your account with other fitness apps, including Fitbit, Garmin, Nike and more. You can earn rewards, such as a Free month of Bulu Box, discounted Element Bars and Orgain products and more. Go here for more details.



AchieveMint lets you earn rewards with the health and fitness apps you already own, use, and love. Just connect the applications and devices you like and AchieveMint will generate insights that help keep you healthy and active. You earn rewards just by doing healthy things so the more you do, the more you earn! Go here for more details but note that they currently have a waiting list for new members.

Now it’s YOUR turn! Which Fitness App is your favorite?

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
