As we begin 2017, how would you like to earn points redeemable for merchandise such as electronics, movies, books, clothes and more just by joining a free program through your insurance? It's as easy as 1-2-3!
I would first like to preface this by saying I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. I can only assume that what I am about to explain is available to everyone with BCBS. And, if you do not have BCBS, you might want to see if your insurance company has a similar program.
Ok, back to the important stuff!
If you login to your account at www.bcbstx.com, you will see a quick link section on the left of the page. In that quick link section you will see Well On Target. Click there. You will then be directed to a separate page, which is the home page for Well On Target. If this is your first time visiting this site, you will have to sign up and fill out a health assessment. Mind you, this is a free program. And don't worry though. You will earn points for that health assessment!
The above image shows your home screen once logged in to Well On Target. You will see your health assessment, any connected devices or apps and your points. The points are the fun part! Let me explain.
There are 9 different ways to earn points through Well On Target.
Once you earn your points, you can click redeem which will take you to a separate shopping page where you can select from merchandise in dozens of different categories. They have items as simple as a DVD or a kitchen supply, or if you are like me, you can earn and save points for a camera! I don't need a super expensive camera. Ever since our garage was broken into this past February and both cameras were stolen, I want to get a replacement. I want to be able to take better pictures of Mark and better pictures for my blog. The one I have found is a Kodak Black PIXPRO Astro Zoom. I've seen this camera run anywhere from $155-$200. Yes, I could spend that money, but that would not fall in line with my goals for the year. Goal #4, if you recall, is work to getting out of debt (pay off 4 bills). So by doing something as simple as syncing my FitBit every single day, I can earn 20,075 points in one year. And, I already have 17,905 points.
Did I mention that this is COMPLETELY FREE?!
Cause it is!
Again, I would like to reiterate that I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. I will assume that all BCBS users across the country have access to this amazing benefit. And, if your insurance company is smart, they will have a program similar to this. The healthier you are, the less you have to use your insurance. I happened upon it when I was looking at one of my medical claims after having Mark.
Yes, it will take me a year to get my camera, but, it will be FREE and I can say I earned it! All by giving a little effort by syncing my FitBit, going to the gym and taking a few online health and wellness courses. It's as easy as pie!
Does your insurance company have something similar they offer? I'd love to hear about it. And, if you sign up for Well on Target, let me know! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
Hi there! I'm Kara, of taking KARA myself! I've dabbled in blogging off and on for a while now. Mostly off. But I'm trying to change that and make a dent in this side of the world wide web. Enjoy!
