We're happy to announce the launch of Goodies, our newest motivational feature. Now you can use the BabyPoints you earn to buy virtual "goodies" for yourself and other BabyFit members. Use them to reward yourself for working hard to achieve your healthy goals (with a vacation, a new wardrobe, or a nanny), to thank other members for their advice and support (with greeting cards, baby dust, and flower bouquets), or to decorate your own BabyPage with baby supplies or other items that reflect your personality (a onesie, a new minivan, or knitting needles). |
Why Buy Goodies?
BabyPoints are one of our most popular motivational tools, as they reward you for every positive action you take to reach your goals, from reading an article to logging your food intake. Earning BabyPoints is a simple way to measure your progress and feel accomplished, even when the scale doesn't move.
Goodies take these points to the next level! You can spend the Points you earn on virtual gifts, allowing you to reward yourself and others for a job well done.
How it Works
Giving, receiving and managing your Goodies is simple! Just follow these steps:
To Give a Goodie to Another Member:
- Earn BabyPoints by completing tasks on the site. The more BabyPoints you accumulate, the more you'll have to spend on Goodies!
- Buy Goodies for yourself or another member.
- When you purchase Goodies, your total BabyPoints earned will remain unchanged, meaning that you will keep your current trophy and your place on the BabyPoints leaderboards. As an example, if you've earned 5,000 BabyPoints to date and you buy a Goodie worth 500 points, your BabyPoints total will remain 5,000 and only your purchasing power will change (5,000 - 500 = 4,500 points to spend). You can learn more about your Goodies purchasing power on your Goodies Details page.
To Buy a Goodie for Yourself:
- Log-in and go to the member's BabyPage
- Scroll down until you see the "My BabyFit Goodies" heading (on the left side of the BabyPage).
- Click the link that says "Give MEMBER a Goodie"
- The next screen will show you how many BabyPoints you have to spend, along with the choices of Goodies and their respective prices. Click on the Goodie you want to give to this member.
- On the next page, you can attach a message with this Goodie (optional). Please note that the message you send with a Goodie is private--only the person who receives the Goodie will be able to read it.
- Confirm that you want to buy it by clicking "Send BabyFit Goodie" at the bottom of the page.
- This Goodie will now appear on this member's BabyPage under the "My BabyFit Goodies" heading, and the member may also receive an email letting them know that they've received a Goodie (if their email preferences allow).
