AchieveMint can access your running and walking activity through all sorts of trackers - Fitbit, Runkeeper, Map My Fitness, and scores of others. Simply create an account when you click on AchieveMint and link whatever fitness tracking device you use to and you're off and running!
You'll earn points on AchieveMint for whatever fitness related activities you perform, and also for weighing yourself - it even gives you 20 points every day for sleeping if your device tracks that! You won't really earn a mint with AchieveMint, but I'm ok with any amount of money an app will give me for doing something I do every day anyway. You need 50,000 points to earn $50 and it won't happen overnight, but the more miles you log, the more points you will earn, so that's a great incentive to lace up your running shoes and get out there. Money is a great motivator!
I've been a member of AchieveMint for several months and have earned almost 30,000 points so far, and I'm not stopping now! I could use a new pair of running shoes and we all know those aren't cheap, so it seems fitting to put my first $50 from AchieveMint towards the price of new shoes.
What will you work towards?

Update 11/16/2015: I did very little in the way of exercise for a couple of months this summer, but I'm back on track now and earning more every day! At the rate I'm going, I'll have earned my $50 gift card in probably about three weeks. I'll be posting separately about how I earn more points every day, so keep an eye on this blog for future updates on this and other programs that pay you to exercise.
