You might be wondering why I’m sharing with you three bars of soap. You see, I’ve been able to combine fitness with couponing. Hooray! I stumbled upon FitStudio.com which has let me hook up my FitBit to count my steps and turn it into cash I can use at Sears, Kmart and a few online shops as well. Turns out you can even link your MyFitnessPal account, Run Keeper, and a Jawbone if you have it. That’s it. It calculates everything for you. For every 14 miles, I end up earning about $5, which is pretty easy. The downfall is the points expire and the key is only purchasing items that you have enough points for and doing in-store FREE pickup. So yeah, you won’t be getting a free treadmill, but you might be able to get free weights or shampoo!
I honestly thought it was a hoax, until I tested it out. And me, being as practical as I am, and could have bought anything I wanted, decided to spend $6 of the $9 I had earned on soap. Yes, I’m that kind of person who buys essentials when she has free money to spend. I could have put it toward electronics, makeup, clothes, even shoes. Well, I got soap. And all I had to do was pick it up from Kmart! Try it and let me know what you think!
