Sweatcoin – Get paid to exercise

Download the free Sweatcoin app and make money from walking and exercising.

Yes, really it's that simple.

What is Sweatcoin?

Sweatcoin works by tapping into the health apps already running on your smartphone (iOS and Android), including accelerometer and location services.

The app translates your steps into a currency called 'Sweatcoins'.

1,000 steps roughly earn you one Sweatcoin (SWC), and you can log up to 10,000 steps a day.

Your Sweatcoins are accumulated in the app. Refer friends to reach the payout thresholds quicker.

And there's more to Sweatcoin than making money from walking. The British Journal of Sports Medicine found that Sweatcoin users increased their daily step count by 19.5% after six months of using the app.

What can you spend Sweatcoins on?

You can withdraw Sweatcoins as cash via PayPal or Amazon credit once you accumulate a certain amount.

Sweatcoins can also be spent in the in-app shop, or donated to charity.

You can earn everything from NOW TV passes to holidays. Prices range from five to 20,000 Sweatcoins.

The offers do change daily, but here are some examples of things we have earnt on Sweatcoin:

  • Bar of chocolate = 15 SWCs (15,000 steps)
  • Bellydancing fitness class = 45 SWCs (45,000 steps)
  • Pair of Vivobarfoot shoes = 250 SWCs (250,000 steps)

What is a Sweatcoin worth?

The value of a Sweatcoin depends on what you are cashing out. If it's cash (via PayPal) a SWC is roughly 1p.

For items you can 'buy' in the shop, a Sweatcoin is worth a little more. From around 3-5p.

If you max out the 10,000 steps a day, you can therefore see it as making 10p-50p from just walking.

Over a year you could earn up to £182 of rewards. However you can refer friends to make quite a bit more money from Sweatcoin.

How does Sweatcoin make money?

Sweatcoin makes money mainly from advertising and brand partners who pay to be featured in the app's marketplace.

There are hundreds of brand partners, including global companies such as Apple, Starbucks, and Amazon.

The Sweatcoin app is free to download and use. However there is an option to upgrade to a Premium account which costs a monthly fee.

This allows you to earn Sweatcoins beyond the normal 10,000 steps a day limit.

Is Sweatcoin a scam?

Sweatcoin is not a scam and is a legit way to make extra money every day.

We have reviewed Sweatcoin across the site and use it ourselves, along with over 30 million users around the world.

Yes, it can take a while to accumulate enough Sweatcoins to cash out, but given most of us walk every day it's kind of free money.
