If you enjoy walking and getting freebies, then you will probably love the mobile app Sweatcoin, which awards you for walking. It’s a simple and easy to use app, which is available on Google Play and App Store. A great new feature enables indoor steps to be counted now too.
Since using the app, I have claimed £750.98 worth of products for free. For some products, delivery costs still apply; however from all my purchases through Sweatcoin, I have only paid £95.62 in shipping costs, which I think is fair enough considering the huge amount (655.36) of money saved from getting the products free.

I often have a good amount of sweatcoins still left over, which means I’ll still be able to redeem other products for free. You never know what future offers you may want to buy and so it’s good to keep some sweatcoins saved.
How Does Sweatcoin Work?
Instead of earning money directly, sweatcoins are used as currency within the app, which can be used to buy offers, products or cash. Some offers are free and don’t cost any sweatcoins.
To begin earning sweatcoins, simply download the mobile app, register, turn on GPS and begin walking. A good thing about the app is that it runs in the background and counts your steps, so you can easily accumulate sweatcoins out and about without even being on your phone. 1000 verified steps convert to 1 sweatcoin, minus 5% commission.
How To Get Extra Sweatcoins
With a free account, you can only earn up to 5 sweatcoins per day or up to 150 per month. However you can earn up to 3000 extra sweatcoins with the daily bonuses. The first daily bonus is available immediately, but to unlock the other 2 daily bonuses, you must walk 1000 steps in a day. Next, you must watch a 30 second ad, per bonus, to receive a random prize from 0 – 1000 sweatcoins.
Sweatcoin now has a new feature which enables you to earn twice the amount of sweatcoins for 20 mins per day. This means you could activate it before going for a walk or run.
If you want to earn even more sweatcoins, you can upgrade your account to a higher level, which costs a certain amount of sweatcoins monthly, however you are then able to earn more monthly. The different account levels are below:
- Mover (Price: Free) – Earn up to 5 SWC per day or 150 per month
- Shaker (Price: 4.75 SWC) – 10 per day or 300 per month
- Quaker (Price: 20 SWC) – 15 per day or 450 per month
- Breaker (Price: 30 SWC) – 20 per day or 600 per month
- Trouble Maker (Price: £1.19) – 50 per day or 1500 per month – Earn 2x as fast
The final way to earn some extra sweatcoins is via their referral program, in which you get 5 free SWC per referral.
What Can I Spend My SWC On?
As the app is based around walking and fitness, most of the available offers are based around nutrition, fitness, health and wellbeing, which I think is great. Although, other types of offers are available too.
On the app, there are five different sections of offers (see screenshots below):
- Pay With Sweatcoins – A few different offers that change regularly, so make sure you claim the offer asap because some offers sell out too.
- Sweatcoin For Good – This section enables you to donate your sweatoins to charities and good causes.
- Digital Offers – This section has apps, services and membership trials, which are often free.
- Physical Products – You can purchase products from this section, but some of them are discounted and not free.
- Auctions – Use your sweatcoins to bid for high priced products, but just note that most winning bids are over 15,000 sweatcoins.
