rewards for healthy activitiesWant some incentive to get & stay healthy?

Wouldn't it be cool if someone paid you to do healthy things?

That day has arrived. 

You can earn real rewards for healthy activities today. AchieveMint lets you earn rewards with the health and fitness apps you already own, use, and love.

You earn rewards just by doing healthy things. To clarify, the more you do, the more you earn! AchieveMint has over 25 apps and counting that you can connect with – so the process is very easy – and shouldn't require you to change your life much – unless you want to start getting more active… while earning rewards, that is!

My Achievemint review:

I'm a big fan of fitness apps. I've used a bunch including Endomondo, MyFitnessPal, Fitbit, Runkeeper, Withings, MapMyFitness, MapMyRun, Strava, Jawbone, Misfit, Microsoft Health, and Under Armour Record. These are all connectable with Achievemint – including many others. It was super easy to sign up on the website and connect with a couple apps.


My complaints

Complaint #1: MyFitnessPal didn't seem to work at first. I've got a ticket into their support – so we'll see on that one. The workaround in the meantime is that MyFitnessPal connects with Apple Health – which connects with Achievemint.

Complaint #2: Endomondo has been my go-to fitness tracker for running and that's currently not available to connect with Achievemint. I've been wanting to test MapMyRun anyway – (I've used it before successfully). Now is as good of time as any to hit the reset button on my fitness plan and recommit to new goals… and gain some rewards in the meantime!

Results so far…

Update after using it for a week: Okay! That was easier than I thought. I am absolutely getting credit for using Endomondo through other integrations. So far, I've earned 23 cents – and I've only gone running once since starting (normally I run 3x week – travel and catching up has messed up my schedule). If I were to get back on track, I estimate I could earn about 25-50 cents a week – without changing any habits.


Example: I weigh myself and my Withings scale automatically syncs my daily weight to MapMyFitness and Withings as well gives that ping to Achievemint – so… I'll take it. That's free money for doing what I do anyway – and takes no effort.

The bottom-line:

So… I'm clearly not going to get rich – but hey… Why not? It's paying me up to $26/year for just encouraging me to do good stuff, anyway. Also – I need to point out that it looks like there are other things I could be earning more – by better logging my food, etc… which I'm currently not doing. My recommendation is that you spend some time and integrate every app & fitness tracker you have so you can max your points. With the app itself, you don't have to click on ads. You don't have to do much of anything with the Achievemint app, in fact, once you set it up. All it pretty much does is display your points… and cash earned.


Get started earning rewards today by signing up for AchieveMint.

It's free – and so are the rewards!
