How Does HealthyWage Work?
If you want to get paid to lose weight, here’s how to get started:
1. Start at the HealthyWage Prize Calculator, where you’ll enter how much weight you want to lose (10-150 pounds, minimum 10% of your starting weight), how long you’ll take (six to 18 months) and how much you want to bet ($20-$150/month).
Based on that information, the calculator will determine your prize amount, up to $10,000.
You can play with the calculator until you get the payout and goal just right, and you’ll know your payout amount before officially placing your bet.
2. Sign up and lay down your bet. You agree to pay the monthly amount for the duration of the challenge.
3. Achieve your weight-loss goal, and win your prize!
You’ll start and end your challenge with a video-recorded weigh-in to demonstrate your weight loss (it takes about two minutes with HealthyWage’s mobile app).
Throughout the challenge, it’s recommended that you use HealthyWage to log weekly weigh-ins (these are just self-reported, not verified by video). It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable and on track to meeting your goal!
4. If you don’t hit your goal, your money goes to support HealthyWage, including prizes for others who achieve their goals.
