Wouldn’t it be great if you could collect rewards and goodies just for being more active? Well, we have teamed up with Bounts to make this happen!
What is Bounts?
Bounts is a digital health app that allows you to claim rewards and prizes. All you need to do is get active and earn Bounts points which you spend in the reward shop.
Bounts helps you track all your exercise and healthy activity in one place and the more activity you do, the more reward points you earn for high street brands, prizes and experiences.
You can connect your favourite running apps, devices like Fitbit and Jawbone or check-in at gyms and venues with the Bounts mobile app.
Using Bounts means that you will earn points for your exercise (tracked through beacons, apps on your phone and fitness devices) as well as classes, which you can then redeem on vouchers for well known retailers such as Debenhams, ASDA, Argos, Sainsbury’s, Boots, Mothercare and many more.
Mobile App and Smartphones
Once you’ve signed up to Bounts, you should download the mobile app using the same email and password.
(Please note that some older models of smart phones won’t be able to download the app, as they are not supported by the provider, but most Android phones will work. The minimum supported model of iPhone is 4s and the minimum supported version of iOS is 8.0.)
The mobile app on your phone should automatically connect you to beacons in Castle Leisure Centre, Radcliffe Leisure Centre and Ramsbottom Leisure Centre when you attend classes as long as you have Bluetooth turned on and your class is within range of the beacon.
Here’s some handy hints to help:
- Click on menu > venue map > make sure auto check in is set to ‘on’
- You’ll need to have Bluetooth and GPS switched on. Make sure the bounts app is allowed to use these features (check your handset)
- The check-in will happen automatically – it measures the time you entered and the time you left and as long as that is more than 30 minutes, you will get points
- You must be logged into the bounts app
- You must have allowed bounts to use location services
If you aren’t able to download the app, you can still connect to Bounts online and sign in at classes as normal – your points will be credited to your Bounts account each month when we add you to the system.
