Now you can walk to get healthy AND wealthy (ish)
It doesn't sound possible that there's a way to earn money by simply walking, but by golly, there is!
The Cashwalk app will reward you for simply walking as usual, no matter where you are walking and for what reason. The app is basically a pedometer, and it will detect every step you make and record it.
For every 100 steps you make, you'll be rewarded with 1 coin, and you can earn up to 100 coins daily.
The coins can be cashed in for a range of gift cards for popular UK retailers. Redemption starts at 1250 coins, earning you a £5 gift card, so working out that maximum of 100 coins per day, you could earn a £5 gift card every 13 days or so.
You can earn extra coins by participating in various games and contests, taking part in surveys and watching adverts, so you can earn a gift card sooner if you're willing to participate in the extra opportunities.
Adverts fund the app, so you'll likely find a fair few of these pop up as you use the app, but to be honest, what app doesn't show adverts these days, and you do not have to actually engage, watch to respond to the adverts, so it's not really a problem!
You can also earn extra points by using the app's referral links to take advantage of free trials for services and buying products through its links, much in the same way as you might do from a cashback service, only its coins, not cash you'll earn initially.
The app will install on your smartphone and will run in the background recording your movement, so you don't need to press start or anything like that; it will just detect when you're walking and when you're not, so its actually pretty easy to earn the points, its amazing how many steps you make in a day without really thinking about it.
If you do walk to work or for leisure, this is a little side hustle that's likely to be very simple to earn from; if you're not on your feet much, then it will undoubtedly take longer to earn with, but every step counts, especially during a cost of living crisis!
