Sweat Coins is an app that I have recently discovered. Of all the different ways I have talked how about to help make money to support your classroom this is probably my favourite. It is an app that pays you to simply walk. I have enjoyed it so much I have imposed it upon family and friends. There really isnt too much of bonus for referring people long term, but in the short term you can be rewarded with PayPal money.
The concept of this app is quite simple as mentioned you get paid to walk. Currently you are only paid for your outdoor steps. Now just a forewarning it still appears from what I have read from the developers that that not all your outdoor steps will be counted as they are still working on improving the programming. With that said, no indoor steps count YET, but they are also working in the programming for this to happen in the future.
The question you are probably wondering at this point is how do you make money from steps being counted? Will quite simply as stated in the app, the information that is collected is then sold off to those interested in this type of information, and as a reward for allowing the collection of this information you get Sweat coins.
There are various rewards offered from this app, however, the draw for me is that it offers Amazon gift cards that can be applied to your Amazon account.
The conversion rate is every 1000 steps = .10 cents. So every 10 000 steps you make $1. They offer $1, $5, $10 and $20 dollar gift cards all of equal ratio so you don’t get any benefits saving up for a $20 dollar gift card vs. a $1 gift card.
Overall, I have had great success with this app. This would be an excellent way to get moving more with your class and make some money for your room, as we try to stick to our 2019 fitness goals. They are continually updating and improving the app, so give it a look and see if this something that might interest you!
