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…

PACT (FREE!):

PACT

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.

CHARITY MILES (FREE!):

charity-miles

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.

WALGREENS BALANCE REWARDS (FREE!):

Walgreens

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 (FREE!):

Bounts

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 (FREE!):

HIGI APP

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.

    Anyone personally use the bottom three?

    • laura

      I have the bounts one. My Sister in law recommended it. I’ve had it a few weeks but haven’t really looked at it

  2. Tabitha

    I’ve been looking for something like this! Thanks for posting!

  3. Eira

    Just got a Fitbit and love it! These will be great to add on!! Thank you.

  4. Valerie

    Love this post!!!!! I’m gonna try a couple out 🙂

  5. Laura

    I use the Walgreens app. Syncs up nice with my fitbit. I looked into some of the other apps. Looks like you have to keep your GPS on always. Don’t really care for that.

  6. Allison M.

    I was NOT impressed with Pact. You “bet” against yourself (i.e., $10 for logging a week of meals) but you barely make any money! I got like $0.35! Bleh….

    • Laura

      And the BOUNTS app doesn’t look too promising. The reviews are few and not good.

      • thehenrydthoreau

        I use Higi to donate to one of the three charities within their site. I like Bounts. I have over 700 points in two months. I gave up on Fitstudio when Sears lowered the points to 2,000. Unless I have points from the Sweeps and need something that they carry, it makes no sense to go to the store for $2.

        • Kristy

          Hi, I’d like to try bounts. Do you have a referral code?

          • Sheng

            Please use this Code: aoergele719

    • Bolt

      The earnings only come from people who don’t make their goal, so if you didn’t make much, on the bright side it means most users are sticking to their help goals. Good for them!

      • Allison M.

        Yes, but it would be nice if that were clearer to the users. Plus it took a good two weeks after I finished a commitment to even get credit for that week. very frustrating. Yes it’s good users are actually making their goals 🙂

  7. Melissa

    I use balance rewards and fit studio. I always get at least $2.00 to use every week at Kmart.

  8. Karla

    I love Fit Studio, I even got my husband addicted! I was bummed they dropped it from $5 to $2 but hey free is still free! I’m going to check out some of these! Thank you for posting!

    • Sarah

      Having a hard time signing up, with the ixd number and also is there a app for the fitstudio?

      • Hunterwoody

        No fit studio app

  9. riss

    I just signed up for one. I’m walking/exercising and donating my miles to charity. It’s a win-win!!!

    • Michelle

      Just an FYI – if you go into your Walgreens account, you can link the Charity Miles app. Not only will your charity get a donation, you’ll get Balance Rewards points, with the only extra work being the initial set up! 🙂

  10. Lisa

    I signed up for Bounts and it says I have 2 weeks free of premium membership. Does anyone know what that means? Am I going to get charged? Thanks

  11. Sarah

    The link on the fit studio isn’t working for me 😞

  12. Cheryl

    What about map my run? I started using it recently and you can use it for running but also you can log other workouts or track meals. You can win gift cards for logging your workouts (I haven’t won any yet but my friend did).

  13. Stacey

    Is anyone using a walking app that is easy to use? I have a fitbit but my technophobe husband doesn’t want one, so we’re trying to find something that he can turn on and never touch again that will track the steps/miles he walks every day. Appreciate any suggestions!

    • JJ

      If you have an iPhone you can use the preloaded health app to track your steps

    • Michelle

      Map My Run is as simple as pressing a “start my workout” button. 🙂 Also, if you have a Walgreens account, go into your Walgreens Balance Rewards, and you can link your Map My Run account. Do it once and every time he logs a walk, you’ll get Walgreens points, up to 1000 points a month.

    • kailla

      Run keeper is really easy

  14. tanyam

    I love Fit Studio from Sears. Free money is free money! I wonder can you double dip and use multiple programs with one device?

    • Hunterwoody

      Yes you can!! Do it!!

  15. Just saying...

    I suppose some people need more of a reward for doing something they should already be doing. One would think feeling better physically and mentally would be enough.

    • Nicole

      I’d like to think of it in a more positive light… Running, for me, is often it’s own reward. But why not double dip? If running on my lunch break can also give money to charity or save my family money, why not take advantage of the opportunity?

      • Just saying...

        I suppose that makes sense. I think it is so awesome that you run on your lunch break. When I was working full-time I would go to the gym on my lunch hour. I even managed to get my employer to pay for my gym membership, give me a longer lunch(2 hours instead of 1) and pay me for 1 of those hours. Some places of employment will work with you if you’re trying to get fit, all it takes is for you to ask. Having healthier(happier) employees saves them money in the long run.

  16. Tanya Bailey

    Walgreens all the way!! I have earned over 21,000 points since July 2014. You can link your Fitbit and Aria scale to get up to 100 points a day for tracking weight (20 pts) & logging miles (20 pts per mile up to 1,000 a month).

  17. BevyS

    You can connect charity miles to your balance rewards account – Awesome!

  18. Dee V.

    I also like WoofTrax – it raises money for your local animal shelter! I volunteer as a dog walker at a rescue and I use WoofTrax to earn money for the shelter while I’m out exercising the shelter dogs!
