Monday Money – Waybetter

What is it?

Waybetter is an app for anyone who wishes to improve their health. Essentially you pay in to a pot, complete the required activities and at the end of the game split the pot with everyone else who hit their targets.

What does it cost?

Waybetter is owned by the same company as Stepbet and uses the same pot of money. I pay an annual membership of $79.99 per year. This allows me to take part in 10 games at anyone time. The entrance cost for games varies from $5 to $30.

How do I pay?

Payment can be made by Paypal or credit/debit card. Payments are in US Dollars.

How much will I make?

Assuming that you fulfil the requirements of the game you will make at the very least your money back. I have made a profit of £75 in the last two months, but this will vary depending on the games entered.

What will I have to do?

Waybetter games are varied. I usually enter 10 at anyone time. Some of my favourites are:

Hydration Nation

Usually a two week game, costing $10 to enter. In order to win you must submit a selfie showing you drinking water once per day, six days per week for two weeks.

Walk This Way

Usually a two week game, costing $5 to enter. In order to win you must track a walk of at least 30 minutes and no slower than 25 minutes per mile four days per week. Fitbit, Strava, Apple Watch, Garmin or Runkeeper can be connected to Waybetter in order to track walks.

Gratitude Attitude

Usually a two week game, costing $5 to enter. In order to win you must submit a photograph showing a handwritten note showing something for which you are grateful once a day, 5 times a week.

Self Care

Usually a two week game, costing $10 to enter. To win, submit a photo per day, 4 days per week, demonstrating one of the eight self care suggestions. The suggestions usually include getting outside, having a bubble bath, eating a healthy meal, workout for 30 minutes, stretch, read for 10 minutes.

Home Declutter

Usually a two week game, costing $10 to enter. To win, submit a collage photo showing before and after of an area that you have tidied. Two collages per week.

Super Squat

Usually a two week game, costing $20 to enter. Record a video of yourself completing two rounds of squats per day, six days per week.

There are many more games, I completed one that was practicing calligraphy, some ask you to track food, others to complete a workout and submit a selfie. There are running games, similar to Walk This Way but faster paced.

Summary

It does take some discipline to ensure the requirements for each game are met, but some overlap. I am often in more than one Walk This Way game each week, so one walk counts for two or more games. I find it a good way to motivate good habits as I really don’t want to lose money!
