Earning a Small Amount of Money By Logging What I Am Already Doing to Improve My Health

If you don't know this yet, Walgreen's has a program where if you track your healthy and health improvement behaviors, they will reward you in the form of bonus dollars to use in the store. Now, it's not much, but it's basically free money for keeping a daily log of sleep amounts, weight, blood pressure readings, blood glucose readings, exercise, and smoking cessation.

For me, three of these activities are already on my daily list. So, simply logging into Walgreen's site once a day earns me 60 to 80 points daily. In a little over a month's time, I earn $2. Like I said, not a lot of money. However, I think the real value is the motivation that the program provides for me, to keep up with maintaining good health.

There's nothing in it for me if you sign up. I just thought I'd share what I've been doing to keep myself motivated and earn a couple of dollars along the way. Here's the link if this interests you.


  1. I am very lucky that I have a program at work that encourages good health habits. The mainstay of it is walking/steps but extends to other areas and I can earn a little money each quarter from it. Being around other people who are working on the same things is really good for me. I definitely need encouragement to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Good luck with your Walgreens program.

    1. Oh that's wonderful that your work sponsors a healthy habits program. Many years ago, our insurance did something like that. I agree, having others working at similar habits is especially helpful. Good luck with your program, as well!

  2. How neat, Lili. I will have to check it out.

    1. Hi Belinda,
      I hope that this can be of benefit to you, too! It's just a small amount of savings, but every little bit helps!
