Wellness360 Review — Update, 1/28/10: Site is down; see the latest here
Date Launched: 2008
Minimum to Redeem: No minimum, checks are sent quarterly upon request
Prizes Offered: Check
Earn Points For: Many activities including 2 points for every page view of at least 10 seconds, for entering or updating your vitals, medications taken, family medical history, workout calendar, or food diary, for watching exercise videos, reading health-related articles, and more
Limit One Account Per: U.S. resident 18+
Notes:
This morning I spoke with an employee of Wellness360 named Heather, who gave me some great information about the program. Wellness360 is owned by a company named Aperture Health. Previously, the site was offered exclusively as an employee benefit to employees of the cities, counties, hospitals, and other small business with which Aperture had a contract. Two or three months ago they decided to open it to the public.
The goal of the website is to offer a small cash incentive for the public to access free health information and other health-related website features. The site offers some interesting features like a health risk assessment, a food diary that calculates your caloric intake, exercise diaries that calculate calorie expenditures, and the ability to upload your medical records if desired to ensure they, for instance, aren’t lost in a fire. The site is in compliance with all HIPPA health care privacy regulations.
While technically there is no limit on what a member can earn, the site examines accounts for abuse. They don’t expect members to spend, on average, more than 10 to 15 minutes a day on the site. Average expected monthly earnings would be between $10 and $20 a month (more if you refer a lot of friends because you get a percentage of the points they earn). They strongly encourage legitimate use of the account to receive health information and to track progress toward your health goals.
Earnings are paid by check quarterly, upon request. Members have 15 days after the quarter ends in which to request their check, otherwise their points roll over to the next quarter. Taking this and processing time into account, expect your check 3 to 6 weeks after the quarter ends.

The address field says “State/Province” but has no option for specific provinces…I was kinda confused, so I asked when I called and the lady said nope, US only. I’m sorry!

Darnit, I hate when programs give conflicting information like this! I’ll call them first thing in the morning just to be absolutely sure, because I’d hate for my Canadian friends to get into the program thinking they’ll get paid and then find out otherwise. Not that the time would be wasted there, though — the site has a LOT of great information and tools to help you get/stay healthy. I think the food diary/calorie calculator is the neatest thing since sliced bread! (To use a food analogy…hehe)

I emailed them again, so we’ll see if we both get different answers again, lol.

This is now open to Canadians. This is an email I received from them at the beginning of the month.
Hi Sheryl,
Yes, Canadians are welcome to join, earn points and “cash out” with wellness360.
Tell your Canadian friends!

Has anyone actually got paid with
Wellness 360?
Last email I got said they will not be sending out checks for their last quarter July-Sept but promised extra in the next pay packet for Oct-Dec quarter. I suspect this site has gone scam but will like to be proven wrong.
Activities have been worth 1 point, not 2, for a while now but nothing much else has substantially changed on the site.
