Introducing higi Points, Rewards and Challenges
First, thank you for being a loyal higi user and joining us in our quest to make tracking your health simple, fun, and rewarding. You’re part of a community that is now more than one million users strong. Together, we’re starting a movement to help people begin to take control of their health and wellness — and we can’t do it without you.
In December, we acquired Earndit — a website that rewards you for physical activity — to integrate physical activity tracking, rewards and challenges into our product offering. Now fully integrated with higi, all higi users have the ability to:
- Connect fitness tracking devices to earn higi Points for physical activity
- Earn higi Points just by checking in at a higi Station
- Redeem those points for Rewards
- Participate in Challenges to win big monthly prizes.
How do I earn points?
You’ll be awarded points each time you visit a higi Station and track your health vitals. In addition, you can visit higi.com to connect your favorite physical activity tracking devices and mobile apps to earn points for your steps and workouts.
What can I do with my points?
You can redeem your points on higi.com for great rewards from some of the top health & wellness brands. You can also donate your points to a charity and enter into drawings for larger rewards like a relaxing vacation. Rewards are always changing so be sure to check back on higi.com for the latest and greatest.
Do I have to pay to collect or redeem my points?
Absolutely not. Collecting points is completely free. Our reward partners want to get the word out about their products so they’re offering these great (and often exclusive) deals.
What activity tracking devices and apps can I earn points with?
Below is a chart outlining the apps & devices that will work with higi and how you can earn points for each. If you don’t see one of your favorites, just let us know as we’re always on the lookout for more to integrate with.
What are higi Challenges?
Challenges are a fun way to spark some friendly competition with other higi members, get a little extra motivation and win extra prizes. In short, challenges run over a specific time period and those who meet certain criteria are eligible to win.
Public challenges, those challenges open to all higi members, will be listed on the Challenges page after logging in to your account. You’ll see both the Challenges you’re currently signed up for and the ones you’re eligible to join.
Looking to test drive how challenges work? Sign up for the Home for the Holidays Challenge which starts this week. Simply earn 100 points (one station check-in) between Oct. 15 and Nov. 14 and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win two plane tickets!
This is just a snippet of all the new features now available. We’ll have plenty more to come on this in the next few weeks. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
