Earndit

I have, but I wished I had stumbled upon it months ago!

Let me tell you about Earndit. If you’re anything like me, you may work out. (After all, most of you are probably here because of my Couch to 5k podcasts.) Earndit wants to reward you for your hard work and commitment to staying fit.

When I run, I use the Runkeeper app to log my workouts, mileage, and all that good stuff. With Earndit, I connected my Runkeeper account to my newly created Earndit account, and based on my logged activity, I earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards.

The running/working out that you were already doing, FOR FREE, can earn you free stuff? Um yea, I wish I had found this back in April before I started running for the warm season!

Other services, besides Runkeeper, that can be used with Earndit include Nike+, Foursquare, FitBit, EveryTrail, Garmin Connect, and BodyMedia Fit.

I’ve never heard of half of the companies that are offering the gift cards rewards, but honestly I don’t care. They’ll have something I want to have, when the time comes to cash in my points. Health supplements, workout clothing, shoes…

I’m not sure if it’s possible, but my only “issue” with Earndit occurs when I’m not running, and therefore aren’t using a GPS tracker/app for my workouts. I still work out every day, though! I wish I could still earn points towards some of that swag even if I’m not out n’ about, ya know? Is that even possible? If it is, then it’s soooo on y’all!

So, I highly recommend you give Earndit a look. If you were running already, why not get rewarded with some free stuff for doing so. Win-win, right? Let me know what you think!
