Congratulations to everyone who participated in the first official public challenge on Earndit. We designed them to be fun and social, and that seems to be the experience most of you had. Success! It’d make us extra proud if you now went and created your own challenges to compete against your friends or co-workers.
The rules in this challenge were simple: whoever earned the most points over a 7-day period would win a $50 Tango Card and anyone who earned at least 200 points would be entered into a drawing to win one of four $25 Tango Cards. For those who aren’t familiar with Tango Card, it’s the most flexible gift card on the market. You can exchange it for gift cards from top-name retailers like Amazon, Starbucks, Gap, Nike, Zappos, SpaFinder and others; or you can donate the card to charity; or you can exchange it for cash.
The overall winner of the challenge was Aaron Schneider with 1,302 points. Sonia sure gave him some competition though! Aaron will receive the $50 Tango Card. Of the 244 participants, 79 of you hit the 200-point threshold. Very impressive. The four winners of a $25 Tango Card are:
- Deborah Cannon
- Sherwin Callos
- Joe Rofino
- Christine Loth Stanford
Congratulations to all of you! There is one other point we’d like to address. We had strong reasons to believe that two people were guilty of cheating and so we disqualified them from the challenge. You can rest assured that the integrity of these challenges is a top priority for us and we’ll do everything we can to keep them fun and fair. Thank you to all of you who had fun with the challenge and got involved in the chatter.
The best way you can show us your love is to go create challenges of your own. Invite your friends, family and co-workers to join them. It makes exercise all the more enjoyable!
