Achievement App Review: Scam or Paid To Walk?

Learn How You Can Earn $10 PayPal Payments just by downloading this app and walking. I'll even show you proof that they pay!I’ve known about and been using the Achievement app now for a long time, and finally earned enough points to get paid. You may have heard me talk about Achievement on my post ways to make money by losing weight.

Today I decided to write a detailed review of the Achievement app and show you that you can actually get paid to use this app.

This by no means is a big money earner, but it is legitimate and pays you via PayPal. If you’re looking for quick money, this is not for you.

If you’re not looking for a large online income, check out My #1 Recommendation, I made over $13,000 last month!

In this review, I’ll cover how it works and prove that it’s not a scam. If you have any questions, feel free to leave comments below.

Achievement App Review

achievement app review is it a scam or legitimateSite:

Type: Paid To Be Healthy

Verdict: Legitimate

In this Achievement app review, I marked them legitimate. The site pays, and I’ll show you payment proof below, but it’s important for you to understand this won’t make you rich. You’re earning a few points each day for tracking your steps.

Once you earn 10,000 points you will get paid, you’ll earn around 25 points per 5,000 steps, so this won’t happen quickly.

Luckily, once you sign up, you don’t have to do anything to earn, the app automatically awards you points for your steps.

Overall, Achievement is a legitimate easy way to get paid to walk, but won’t be a huge income.

How Does Achievement Work?

1) Join Achievement For Free

Joining and using Achievement is completely free. You can get signed up by visiting

2) Link Apps

Once you’ve joined, you can link over 30 apps to Achievement to earn points. The main three are Apple Health, Samsung Health, and Fitbit, but there’re several other workout apps that you can link.

3) Earn Points Once You Link Apps

Once you link some apps, you’ll earn points for steps, checking heart rate, completing workouts, and several other fitness related achievements. You can even link your Twitter account and earn points for posting fitness related pictures!

3) Participate in Programs & Studies

Occasionally Achievement partners with health companies to offer other ways for you to earn by answering surveys and participating in bonus programs. You’ll need to meet their qualifications but can be a way to earn additional points. I never received any bonus programs but was able to complete a few short surveys. I think they earned me an additional 10-25 points each.

4) Earn 10,000 Points & Get Paid

Once you earn 10,000 points, you can cash out a $10 payment via PayPal!

5) Refer Friends To Earn More

One easy way to reach the cashout amount quicker is by referring your friends. You’ll earn 250 points for every friend that you refer that signs up.

How Does Achievement Pay?

Once you earn 10,000 points you can exchange your points for a $10 payment via PayPal. On their FAQs it says you should receive payment within 3-7 business days.

Achievement Payment Proof

Below is a screenshot of the payment I received from Achievement:

My Achievement Experiences

It looks like I joined Achievement in June of 2017. I linked my Apple Health account so I’ve earned points for steps and checking my heart rate. It took me until January 15th to earn 10,000 points, so quite a bit of time.

I believe I switched phones in that time frame, and I didn’t have the app for a few weeks, so that affected my earnings but I did refer a few friends so probably earned 750 points or so from referrals.

Overall it’s been an easy way to earn some extra cash and if you paid more attention to it, linked more apps, and utilized all the ways to earn you could reach the cash out amount much quicker!

To me it’s an app you join now and then forget about, so it’s 100% an app I’d recommend, especially because they pay cash via PayPal!

Achievement A Scam?

Thank you for reading my Achievement app review. It’s not a scam but not a big money maker either. You’re getting paid to be active, so can you really complain?

As long as you have a way to link your steps easily, Achievement should be worth it. Once you’re signed up the app will automatically update and give you points, so there’s nothing you need to do after you join.

  1. I downloaded the app because I was already working out and trying to exercise and track my diet and water with other apps so this just was icing on the cake for me. Getting ready to head to Disney for a vacation where I know I will walk ALOT but hoping to reach my 10K mark before then so the funds will be in my paypal to use towards my trip. I have used a variety of other reward apps and now have over $100 in Disney Gift Cards I earned, plus $75 towards our Dinner at Rainforest Cafe and $40 in Starbucks Gift Cards to take with me so that I will have to worry less about cash. Hoping my diligence pays off and I might have yet another payday waiting when I return home from all my exercise while on vacation.

  2. Honestly, I think the app is a scam. It does not record all of your steps. I had a day over a month ago where my samsung app recorded over 26k steps. After trying all of support’s suggested steps it still only has me down for 14k steps.
    There are some days where no activity is recorded at all in achievement. If you email customer support, they will respond maybe one out of 10 times and it takes weeks only for you to get a cookie cutter response. And they will not respond to follow up emails.
    I’m honestly so frustrated. This has been a waste of time.

    • I honestly can’t speak to how closely it tracks steps because all I did was install it and let it be until I reached the cash out amount.

      I also never needed to contact support because the payment went through fine so never needed to.

      But I know that the way it tracks steps is through other apps, in my case I was connected with Apple Health. Are you sure whatever app you’re connect with is counting steps correctly? Could you be using an app to tell that you walked 26k steps and be connected with a different app that might not work as well?


  3. After reading through this article fully, I noticed something really helpful which is the payment proof, with just that am convinced enough.

    I moved to the comments section and noticed a comment by angelce903, with that I also discovered that some many people out there will be asking same questions.

    What is the questions?
    The questions is-

    Can I download the app on an iPhone?

    Yes, but the problem I experienced while searching for the app in my Android phone was damn stressful, moving from one page to another, maybe it’s because of my location,

    but today I have made everything thing easy. You can now download it with one link click for both android and iPhone.

    You can get the download links for your android and iPhone here.

    But the best review is here with payment proof.

    With the full trust on this post I linked back to it,.

    • Thanks for reading and thanks for the link Desmond. I can’t comment on the issues with Android because I have an iPhone and have never had any issues with the app.

      Great site and best of luck to you!


  4. hmmmm, i see achievement paid 1 point for 360 steps. which would account to less than what your blog talks. does it differ for different users?

    • I found that information in their FAQs but it looks like you’re right.

      Just checked and I earned 6 points for checking my heart rate and looks like that last log for steps was 6,390 steps and it earned me 17 points.


  5. Hello,

    I actually like this opportunity and I noted it in my journal! I probably nedded an opportunity like this since I struggled with keeping up with Schedule – maybe I should be paid to start being fit for real! Can I download the app on an iPhone? Thanks once again for showing me this opportunity!

    • Thanks for reading my achievement review!

      Yes it’s available on iphone in the app store and in the Google Play Store. 

      Keep in mind it’s not a fast income but can be a way to earn for your steps and other activities.
