Deal DetailsLast Edited by BostonGirl January 3, 2014 at 02:50 PM
Last January's HealthyWage challenge was +41 on Slickdeals: http://slickdeals.net/f/5765420?v=1 This year's promo is called "HealthyWager" where users can choose how much to bet, how much to win and how long to make the terms of the bet for.
Say that I'm 200 lbs:
- In the 2013 promo, I'd have to wager $150 to lose 20lbs in 6 months.
- With the 2014 HealthyWager, I can choose to bet $100 to lose 20lbs in 10 months. The payout will probably not be $300, but may work better for me if I can only afford to bet $10/month. Likewise, I can also choose to very aggressive and bet $1,000 to lose 100lbs in 6 months, which will have a significantly higher payout.
PAYOUT: The payout is calculated by an algorithm that takes into account your initial weight, your target weight, your bet, how you're going to lose weight, etc, so it will be different for different people. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org within a month of signing up to get another $20 in their winnings.
1) Minimum bet is $100 to lose at least 10% of the weight in at least 6 months (users can choose to pay monthly)
2) Weigh-in can be done electronically - instructions here: https://www.healthywage

Quote :We [are] currently not offering a Slickdeal reward.
As of 3:04pm Pacific Time on 1/3/2014, HealthyWage has removed the non-disparagement clause from its Team Challenge terms.
We got rid of our sour grapes clause at the end of the year in response to comments from participants and even lots of slickdeals folks. We agree that it was unnecessary. The link you (or someone) found was no longer active but for some reason still "Google-able". Anyway, we've removed it. The new rules are here: https://www.healthywage
As you can see, we've worked very hard to make the rules simple and to make clear that the only way to lose is to not achieve your weight loss goal.
Hope to see you in one of our challenges some time soon!
