Carrot 2.0 Rewards Comeback
I recognize they have a bad reputation before they shut down, but I am sure they wouldn't return unless they learnt from their mistakes and go back to their roots.

Several people paid for 1 year subscriptions and then the company folds and doesn't refund anyone, apparently PayPal and CC companies weren't honouring chargebacks as it's a digital non-tangible service.
To re-launch like this so quickly after screwing over that many people is very bold.

"Carrot Rewards was a mobile app for residents of three Canadian provinces and one territory, allowing users to complete health questionnaires and track steps in exchange for rewards points"

There's no indication that Carrot 2.0 will charge money for points. Perhaps they have a new source of funding that makes them viable again. But if not, and their business model requires them to get funding from users, then I certainly won't participate.

They did. From Ottawa plus ~3 provinces. One was Ontario. That business model seemed to be sustainable. Then the Doofus Ford got elected and started madly slashing and bashing around in all directions. Carrot was one of many casualties. That's when they folded.
Is sitting around on an Aeroplan reward flight eating pretzels and drinking beer any better?The only thing I remember is that I found it unique that a company promoting basic health and fitness gave points towards Cineplex (I believe they did at some point) ... because sitting in a theater eating popcorn is not what I call healthy.
At least with Aeroplan you'd need to walk/run/swim around the world in order to collect a free flight, a couple of AP miles at a time. You'd be very fit by the time that happenedBut, if an app gets some people to do some basic stuff, it's better than nothing.
