With the holidays gone and winter in full swing, our new goal: STAY HEALTHY! Here are five ways to stay healthy on a budget…and even earn!
#1 STOCK UP ON VITAMINS
#2 SNAG REBATES ON HEALTHY & ORGANIC FOOD
Use rebate apps to save on healthy, organic, all-natural foods. In some cases, you can even make money when you stack the rebate with coupons and sales. Here are our favorites—download them now!
- Berry Cart, Shopmium (use code GHUUAEPE), and Shrink (use code OBCHJY) specialize in organic and natural products.
- Ibotta, Checkout 51, and Snap regularly feature "any brand" rebates (e.g., milk, bread, apples, etc.).
#3 PRINT COUPONS FOR HEALTHY FOODS
Subscribe to the HealthESaver newsletters to get an inbox full of printable coupons. The website also features some coupons for immediate printing.
#4 GET PAID TO GET IN SHAPE
If you’re determined to lose weight, and I mean really determined, HealthyWage can earn you a decent chunk of change for doing so.
Give them your height, weight, how much you want to lose in a given time frame, and the amount you’ll bet each month. They’ll then tell you how much you’ll win if you succeed.
For me, if I bet $50 a month and want to lose 20 lbs in 8 months, I’ll get $444 back ($400 I bet, plus a $44 prize). The higher you bet, the better your prize will be. However, if you don’t lose the weight, you lose it all.
#5 MAKE MONEY FOR WALKING
Walgreens Balance Rewards is a store loyalty program where you accrue points for shopping at Walgreens. You can also earn points by connecting your Fitbit! If you don’t have a Fitbit, no worries—there’s a whole list of health apps you can connect. You’ll earn 20 points for every mile you bike, run, or walk! 5,000 points equals $5, and 40,000 points equals $50.
