    The system has been down all month, but they are giving everyone the highest rate. Hope the fix it soon. I actually love the gamification part (competing with others for most steps)!

    It seemed compelling but too many hoops with an app that didn't load right and I was never able to get the account funded. I will opt for a little less and maintaining my sanity.

    I am a long distance runner so this is good for me for a couple of years, but I am increasingly wondering why I am carrying my IPhone with me when I run just to pick up 0.05%?

    Just a great concept! Wish I could be incentivizd the same way for health insurance, life insurance.

    Been pleased for a couple of years, and have enjoyed constantly getting a higher rate for my steps. All of the phone calls and letters demanding that I vote on some merger are a little too much.

    I've had zero problems for since opening over a year ago. The rate has fallen in line with others but remains competitive. This month has been a nuisance with multiple phone calls and letter encouraging me to vote on something I know nothing about and to buy stock in some tiny little bank in Georgia. Losing patience here quickly.

    I've been with this for about 18 months since it first opened and have been very pleased. Not happy about the rate falling but it is still one of the two or three best ones out there.

    This was very compelling when I first learned about it on this site but now it is kind of average and as we go into winter with all the gyms closed it may turn very average if I cannot stay above 10,000 steps.

    Au contraire non frere. The drive to get to 12,500 daily steps is the only thing to keep me hiking and biking on grey days. I do not know what balances you are keeping, but 0.95% is a whole lot better than any of the big banks are offering at the moment.

    I had some problems with all of the apps and passwords and all of that, but am enjoying the highest online savings rate available.

    My husband and I are pretty active and over 65 (so have lower numbers to meet). Yet, we could not sustain the averages required for the highest rate. It might have been a recording problem with the iPhone.

    This has actually been a great experience. Getting a higher balance has been an incentive to keep me active and I enjoy the competition. The downside is that the two apps are a little cumbersome.

    The people were really nice when I spoke with them setting this up. The two separate apps on my iphone became annoying as I was always being logged out. I think this would make sense if I had a big balance, but I do not.

    I love getting a higher rate just for recording all the steps. I run daily. Might not work for people who live sedentary but most will have no prob to get to 12,500 per day average.

    This is just a fantastic deal for anyone who is active (me, my friends and fam) that is so easy to set up and use. I am so glad that I found it here. Kudos for listing it, even though it is going to be a pass for those who live sedentary lifestyles.

    This is a great account for me as I easily get to the 12500 steps required each day. Apps are great once you get used to the kinks. Fun to be getting this rate as folks around the office speak of moving to places like Ally for 1.80%. I just hope the rate sticks.

    I found it frustrating to fund, but I reached out to the csp through the website and they told me that I could fund via wire and that they would reimburse the expenses. I like the program so far. It is keeping me fit. Not sure how long it will last, what their motivations are or how easy it will be to withdraw money.

    Sent an email to Fitness explaining that I am handicapped and was there an exception that would qualify me for the 2.75% account. No response to date. Wonder if their requirements
    are within the law.

    Dude! $2500 a day. Is this a joke/>?

    Try $2500 a week. Impossible to ever make this worthwhile.

    Did you try to transfer money in and out? This is capped at $15,000 out and $50,000 in. For many this is not a factor, but for some this really limits what you can do with the account.

    I like the rate and the incentive to stay active, but it took me weeks to get approved. They ran credit checks and manual approvals requiring that you mail documents. I tried to get my mom to join because of the lower step requirements for seniors but she didn't want to bother. I still think it will all be worthwhile if they keep the rate here.
