Well… Almost free. Does $1.05 count as really paying something?
Anyways, for the past few months, I have been tracking most of my exercises with the MapMyFitness apps. Specifically Map My Run and Map My Ride.
One of the things that you can do through this app is join public challenges. For example, one of the ongoing challenges is the BMW X1 Ultimate Fitness Xperience Challenge, in which you have to use the app to record 19 workouts in 6 weeks. If you complete the challenge within the time period, you will be entered to win a $500 gift card from Under Armour and a personal training package from Men’s Health.
I was recently entered into the 30/30 Challenge where you had 30 days to complete 30 miles by logging exercises of 20 minutes or longer. Because I had been training, I logged over 80 miles and was in the top 15% of 152,000 challenge participants.
Today I got an email claiming that I had “crushed” this challenge and I was being given a promo code for 15 dollars off any purchase from the Under Armour online store. All I had to do was spend $15.01 or more to qualify. I set out to find something I could get for free and I found this set of long socks that I thought would be great since the weather is getting colder. It was $15.99 for the pair.
I used a 30-day free trial from ShopRunner to get 2-day free shipping and the grand total for my purchase came to $1.05.
I don’t know exactly why I got the $15 off and I don’t know if it will come around again or not. But I do know that I got a
basically free pair of socks just because I worked out this past month… and that’s pretty cool.
