I write this blog slightly euphoric from finally winning a prize on earndit. After a few months on the platform I managed to win a $25 Amazon gift card. As good as cash to me.
Now, the fault of waiting so long to win is not all down to luck or the lack of generosity of the website. Of the 21 previous challenges I entered I didn't always exercise enough to meet the prize threshold. To be eligible you have to make a certain amount of points. It might be 150, for example, to be in the draw for the free prizes and 360 to be eligible for the main prize. 360 equates to roughly about 6 hours of training and you are allowed a maximum of 60 points daily. I like this points system as it sets it apart from a sweepstake type competition. You truly do have to earn it.

You can also redeem the points you accumulate immediately for discounts off sponsor products. Personally this is not too much of a draw for me. I usually buy entries to the free giveaways with my leftover points.
So I'm sticking with Higi because of the potential to win free stuff and ease of use to maintain. Try it out for yourself.
