Ok, I know you read the title and thought…um heck yeah I want to get paid to make healthy choices. Well, today I’ll show you how.
Last month I showed you how to take advantage of paperless coupons by being a balance rewards member, now I’ll show you how to save even more.
As you know I’m still in the process of trying to lose weight…”still in the process”…I’ll lose a few pounds here and there, and it seems like the weight is back on me the next week.
I know it’s up to me to be proactive, and stay focused. To be brutally honest, I lack accountability. I have nothing, or no one holding me accountable of my actions. Nothing encouraging me, or challenging me to make healthy goals.
And sometimes I just want to eat a burger, or authentic mexican tacos, or a whole bag of hot chips topped with a strawberry soda (it gets like that some times).
This is where my Walgreen’s Mobile app kicks in… ACCOUNTABILITY! (whenever I’m able to save money my accountability, reliability, and senses go up, lol.)
With Balance Rewards for healthy choices it’s like I’m getting paid each time I make a healthy choice.
If you’re not sure what I meant by getting paid…I mean exactly what I said…getting paid. With Walgreen’s Balance Rewards I’m able to collect points, which in turn equals cash (*store credit*) that I can use in store to buy the things I want. The cashier can apply my rewards to my purchase to lower my bill.
For example 5,000 points equals $5 off, and 10,000 points equals $10 off. Now, look at the chart above, and notice all of the points available. I’m basically making a killing by staying on track. Every day I gain 20 points by tracking my daily activity. I’m also able to connect a variety of fitness devices, including the fitbit, and apps such as My Fitness Pal to track my daily calories, and activity.
Some of the healthy choices I’ve started to make are:
Drinking more Water: Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m probably dehydrated. I don’t drink enough water, and judging from the color of my pee, I should probably be admitted into a hospital. But, I’m trying, I’m really trying to drink the daily required amounts of water for my weight.
Practicing accountability: With my Walgreen’s mobile app I gain Balance Rewards points every day I track my activity, and my goals. I also use the app for weight management. It has helped me out tremendously because some days I don’t feel like working out, or making any healthy choices, but when I look at my app and see my progress I feel encouraged to continue.
