We all walk, especially when geocaching, so why not use those steps to earn some extra cash while finding a cache? Here are three apps that I use to earn a little extra money each month.
Achievement is a really simple way to earn some extra cash based on your steps. Link apps such as Fitbit or Apple Health to the Achievement app to earn points that can be redeemed for cash. The more steps you take, the more points you earn. Link more apps and earn more points. Logged workouts through MyFitnessPal earns points as well. Plus, there are occasionally special offers to earn you bonus points, such as taking a quick survey. And of course, referrals earn points as well.
Once you earn 10,000 points, they can be redeemed for a $10 PayPal deposit. It’s that easy.
Use my referral link and you’ll start out with 100 points!
Sweatcoin is similar to Achievement, except that it uses your device’s GPS and will only count outdoor steps. Outdoor steps earn Sweatcoins, which is basically an online currency that can be used to purchase products through offers in their app. Offers may include gift cards, electronics, services, and PayPal. There are new offers added every day and only a set amount of each.
There is a maximum number of Sweatcoins that you can earn each day based on your “level.” You have the option of trading a small amount of Sweatcoins per month to up that level to earn more daily Sweatcoins. That would be worth it if you consistently walk a lot outside, but take a look at the levels to determine which one is right for you.
Start out with 5 Sweatcoins in the bank when you use my referral code.
Walgreens Balance Rewards
Earn up to an extra 1,000 points per month toward your Walgreens Balance Rewards just by linking health apps to your account and going about your normal business. Points are earned based on steps, sleep, weigh ins, and more. Download the Walgreens app onto your phone, log in with your Balance Rewards account, and then link your preferred health app or activity tracker app to your account to start earning rewards.
All three of these apps are available on both Android and iOS. They’re super easy to set up. And once you do, you can pretty much forget about them until you’re ready to redeem your earnings. Get out there and earn some cash!
Happy cashing while caching!
