How I Won $5000 with My FitBit

I am an affiliate for the fitness app KrowdFit. If you sign up for my team on KrowdFit, I make a small commission. All opinions are my own and yes, I really did win $5000. 

I wrote and rewrote that headline 500 times. I was sure that my regular readers would see it assume my blog had been hacked and taken over by some unscrupulous people. After all, who legitimately wins five grand? Does that really happen?

Turns out it does. It was a surprise to me too.

I won the money on an app called Krowdfit. Their slogan is you sweat, we pay...and boy do they. If you are a FitBit or Jawbone UP user you can connect to KrowdFit and automatically be entered into contests to win cash prizes for meeting step, physical activity, sleep and food diary entry goals.

KrowdFit provides the social support plus cash prizes for Fitbit and Jawbone UP users. Say, what? Yes. It's a Krowd-funded rewards program that pays out cash prize giveaways for the activity that you log on Fitbit and Jawbone UP.

Once you sign up and sync your device, it automatically syncs the activity from your FitBit or Jawbone UP to KrowdFit, which means you are entering the giveaways without even thinking about it. That is what happened to me.

A KrowdFit membership costs $12.99 a month and you have tons of opportunities to win cash prizes. KrowdFit understands that it is the small daily actions that lead to big results so they reward you for your consistent positive healthy habits.

What can I win? Glad you asked.

Weekly Meal Logging Challenge: 

Every week they choose 12 winners to split a $1500 cash prize for $125/each winner. (one entry per meal logged)

Monthly Sleep Challenge:

Every month they select eight winners to split a $2000 cash prize for $250/each winner (one entry per 8 hours of sleep)

Quarterly Step Challenge:

Two winners split a $5000 cash prize for $2500/each winner (one entry per 5,000 steps)

Quarterly Physical Activity Challenge: (this is the prize that I won!)

Four winners split a $20,000 cash prize for $5000/each winner (one entry per 60 minutes of activity)

$1 Million Fitness Sweepstakes

Drawings occur every Monday/Wednesday/Friday.
Members receive three entries a day for logging in, syncing device and dieting data!

$5000 will buy a lot of dog treats for Ollie (or help with medical bills if I break my neck on that trampoline).

You can Join me over on KrowdFit for $12.99 month plus if you don't already have a Fitbit or Jawbone Up you can bundle a device in your membership.

I still can't believe I won five grand. 

Amazing, Right??

  1. Congrats! That is pretty cool!

  2. That's awesome! Congratulations!!

  3. WOW! Congratulations, Lea!

    Aside from the chance to win prizes, what else do you get out of that membership fee? Is it possible you'll pay that amount each month and get...nothing? Are there other elements to the site besides the prize drawings?

    1. Thank you! The main purpose of the app is the giveaways/sweepstakes, so when you log new activity through your FitBit it shows you daily what contests you are entered and also has some daily motivational quotes. I'd say the app is like a companion to the FitBit app. It took me about six months before I won anything!
