I’ve been using Achievement to earn extra cash for about 2 years now.
Connect your fitness tracker to Achievement and be rewarded when you exercise, sleep, and log calorie or water intake.
It is non-intrusive, and you’ll earn points that can be redeemed for cash via PayPal, gift cards, or you can donate your earnings to various charities.
I earn $10 in PayPal cash about 4-5 times a year. I usually use it to reload my Starbucks Card. It’s a nice little perk for being active.
It’s super easy to get started. Click here to sign up! This is my referral link- If you sign up using my link, I earn an extra 100 points.
Achievement is compatible with over 20+ Android and iOS apps (and counting!).
