Review: Is The Pact App A Scam?

Update: March 13th, 2018

The Pact Site Has Been Shut Down By The U.S. Feds
Is the Pact App a scam

Online Money Making Opportunity:  Pact App

Price to Join:  Free! Members must be at least 18-years old.  It is open to anyone in the world, however the country of origin must accept Pay Pal accounts.

The Pact App has been around since 2015.

Founder/owner: Could not be ascertained.

Pact App:  Scam or is it the real deal?

This organization has members worldwide but still one needs to know is the Pact App a scam?  Or is it completely legit?

Could you earn money by making every effort to maintain your health?  If a person resolves to exercise 4 – 5 times per week, plus maintain a proper diet the Pact App is designed to help the individual earn some money, (emphasis on the word “some”).

There are some issues however for those members who do not have the inner motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle.  Instead, for those people who are lazy by not exercising and eating poorly it could cost them $.

*** Before I dive into this organization if already you believe that the Pact App is something that is unappealing to you, as an alternative I now mention what is My Top Recommendation for learning how to create money for yourself online.  Exercise and proper eating not a requirement, lol! ***

Pulling back the curtain on the Pact App:

The App itself is available at either the Apple Store or Google Play and obviously can be used on a Smart Phone with Internet connectivity. Is the Pact app a scam

It has been downloaded over 500,000 times on Google Play.  It is interesting to note that users who graded the App on average gave it only a 2.9 out of 5.  Hmm!

The Pact App syncs with other Apps such as Fitbit, Run Keeper, MapMyRun, MyFitnessPal, etc.

As I stated above the Pact App can be used worldwide.  However, as a member could earn money by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, he/she must come from a country that accepts Pay Pal accounts.

As noted on the site, a heavy concentration of members live in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia.  Other area with member representatives come from the Caribbean, Middle East, Japan and major cities in China.

A prospective member must be at least 18-years of age to be eligible to join.  No exceptions!

The 3 types of “Pacts” regarding fitness and diet:

The program consists of 3 “pacts” which are as follows:

1). Veggie Pact:

The member makes a commitment to eat more fruits and veggies daily.  How does he/she prove it?  Purportedly all it would take is snapping a picture on a Smart Phone and verifying it by the company’s rules.

2). Gym/Workout Pact:

The member makes a commitment to work out in a gym/health fitness center.  He/she would then have to have it verified by personnel at the center.  Or syncing it with Fit Bit, Run Keeper Apps commit to running, roller blading or riding a bicycle at least 30 minutes per day or if walking taking 10,000 steps daily.

3). Food Log Pact:

As this program is partnered with My Fitness Pal, the individual member would keep track of the various types of foods that would be eaten daily.  Not only would calories be counted, but only certain types of foods would be allowed to be consumed.

I guess that Pizza Hut’s “Meat Lovers’” Pizza would not count as being allowed in the Pact.

Below is a You Tube video put out as a promotion by the Pact App site:

So how does one potentially earn a little money weekly?

On the homepage of the site, the statement is made that as members themselves map out the goals that they want to achieve, fully 95% of them are successful. A member achieving his/her goals each week would be eligible to earn money.

So, where does the money come from I wanted to know?  I found out and for me at least it left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth.  Perhaps it is a reason why the App was only rated 2.9 out of 5 at the Google Store.

Members who are unable to meet their weekly goals are the ones who pay for the ones who are successful!

Say what?  How is this done?

When you register as a member, you must provide some information!  Including your Pay Pal and Credit Card Info!  Oh boy!! Is the Pact App a scam

When a person decides to join this site, he/she must provide specific details as to name, address, town/city, state, zip code, country and electronic email address.

The person MUST also provide a verified Pay Pal account, (in order to get paid) and that or a verified credit card for when he/she cannot make their weekly goals.

If a person is not able to achieve his/her goals regarding exercise and following a proper diet intake, he/she will get charged with money coming out of the registered credit card or Pay Pal account in association with the Pact Site.

Are you kidding me, you ask?  I wish that I were. But unfortunately, I am not!  For verification, please click here, “Terms of Services” and scroll down to #4: Registration.

If you are an individual who dislikes providing a person who you do not know info on your Pay Pal or credit card account then, to be honest, this site will NOT be for you!

Personally, I would loathe to have anyone have access to my info.

*** Again, if this sounds like something you do NOT want to get involved with, as an alternate option I make mention of My Top Recommendation for learning how to run legitimately create income for yourself online. ***

Further information which is part of “Pacts’” terms of agreement:

On the homepage, this organization wants it to be known that the entire program should be a positive one.  There would be a level of flexibility as the member would be the one responsible for setting his/her own goals.

The site claims that if something were to go wrong regarding exercise when an injury could occur or the person gets sick, simply by obtaining a doctor’s note it would officially address any unforeseen problem which had occurred.

The member then would not be responsible for getting charged money from his/her Pay Pal or credit card when a goal for the week was not met.

Are you serious?  I remember as a 7-year old child having to bring from home a doctor’s note to certify that I had been sick for the week that I missed school.

This “Pact” organization appears to treat its members like adolescent children! A required doctor’s note?  Really?!?

Deleting an account because the member simply dislikes Pact:

A member would have to be careful as to what day of the week to delete his/her account.  It is something that would be required in order for the person to not continue getting charged for not meeting his/her goals. And the money going directly to members who did meet their weekly goals!

The thing is that the best day to delete an account would be on a Sunday.  The site’s week always begins on Mondays. That is when all members’ weekly goals go into effect.

The worst day to delete an account would be on Tuesdays.  The credit card/Pay Pal account would still be charged for the rest of the week until the following Monday when because of the inactivity, the person would still be held accountable.  Although I suppose he/she could get one last doctor’s note.

So, bottom line how much could a person make with the Pact App? Is the Pact App a scam

To be truthful, this is one of the lowest paying program involving an App that I have reviewed at this site.  Depending on the goals that are set and exceeded, members make anywhere between 30 CENTS and up to $5 per week.  That would be it!!!  The information can be found on the lower right hand side of the site’s home page.

Even at $5 per week that is not coming anywhere close to paying for the cost of food that would be part of a member’s new diet.

Final thoughts:

I did not call some of my other program reviews involving money-making Apps – Mr. Rebates, Foap, or BookScouter scams by any means.  None of them would lead you to achieving financial freedom either.

The Pact App and the fact a member would be paying out money by failing to meet his/her goals towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle?  If I were you I’d consider passing on this program.

It’s less than legit!

One Last Thing. . .

If you still are looking a way to make money online besides trying to so through the Pact App program, there is  My Top Recommendation at Wealthy Affiliate.

It is the most recognized and legit program on the Internet that would teach a motivated person how to build an online business working from home. Is the Pact App a scam

With over 800,000 members since the company’s inception back in 2005, that figure speaks for itself.

The program has the best educational training, tools and community support of any other competitive program online.

  1. Weight loss is challenge for some people, and research actually shows that money is a good motivator for people trying to lose weight. But this Pact App does not seem that motivational at all. There are much better “get paid to lose weight” programs out there.

    I think one of the things that people neglect to do when getting involved in something like this, is that they don’t check out the fine print. But that’s important to do, so that you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into. As far as the doctor’s note go, that’s really to protect the member so that he/she won’t be charged, because what ailment they may have suffered, may have seriously hindered their ability to workout.

    But as far as earning money goes, I prefer generating long term income by having my own online business. No two ways about it.

  2. Hi Vanessa! Thank you for both reading this article and then sharing your thoughts. I agree with you about the Pact App. First, the fact that a person could truly earn so little money, plus the negativity of having to pay for other members if he/she does not meet the weekly goals to me is just a turn-off. My now deceased mother for years used to be with Weight Watchers. Failing to meet a goal did not mean that the money/payment dues went to a person who so happened to succeed with his/her goal.

    I also agree that having an online business such as Wealthy Affiliate is a much better way to generate long term income for a motivated individual!

    Again, Vanessa thank you for your thoughts on this article.



  3. Not only is Pact not motivational for weight loss but it’s a huge SCAM.
    I’ve 🐝 using this app for a 3 months and from what I’ve seen the fruit and veggie app does nothing to improve people’s eating habits. If you submit French fries, pizza, soda and pastry with a strawberry on top and it’s considered a fruit/veggie portion what lesson will you take from this? Is this healthy? I believe this can even be armful.
    The gym pact simply doesn’t work because it’s impossible to sync with apps like Fitbit so the thing that could be positive about this app simply doesn’t work.
    And now the reason why I call this a scam. While using this I always met my goals and even got paid twice but now I got a message from PayPal saying that Pact was taking $30 from my account. I’ve since tried several times to contact Pact but they are no longer answering to emails.
    The risk of losing money to motivate can work sometimes, maybe not in weight loss but it can encourage you to work out more and that is why I like apps like Stepbet. This app motivates me to move more and reach higher goals but doesn’t steal from their community like Pact doesn’t or encourage you to continue with unhealthy eating habits just to make a buck

  4. Hi Layla, Thank you for reading this article and sharing your thoughts. Well, having experience in using this App and the issues that you had as a member, you of all people have provided a complete answer as to whether or not Pact App is a scam or not. The fact that members who are unable to reach their goals end up paying $$ into the pockets of people who do succeed just did not sit right with me as I was doing research at the site. Your issues seemed unnecessary, especially as when trying to contact with staff you were met with silence.

    Thank you for your thoughts, Layla!
