The most popular item in the Zamzee Rewards shops is the Xbox 360 Console. Earn 21,000 Zamz and this sleek black beauty could be yours.

But new users often ask us, “Does anyone ever win an Xbox?”

Yes. Just this week, pburdette dropped 21,000 Zamz and we sent her an Xbox the very same day.

So how did she do it? We interviewed pburdette so you can learn her tricks and earn an Xbox yourself.

Zamzee: Hi pburdette. Congrats on winning the Xbox!

pburdette: Thanks! It feels great to have accomplished my goal.

Zamzee: No kidding! What are you planning to do with the Xbox? Do you have any favorite games?

5 Ways Zamzee Gets Your Kids off the Couch

Does your son like videogames more than shooting hoops outside? And maybe your daughter would rather chat with friends than practice soccer. Or vice versa. That’s okay. Many kids don’t enjoy participating on competitive sports teams. But research shows that kids who are more physically active enjoy better social, emotional and physical health – whether or not they’re “on the team.”

Here are 5 ways Zamzee makes exercise fun for kids who don’t love sports.

1.  Zamzee lets kids earn rewards for moving. And any movement that gets your heart racing counts – dancing, skate boarding, playing tag with friends –  even if you’re not a star athlete or a jock. On zamzee.com kids get to pick rewards to work towards, like gift cards or popular toys. This incentive makes it easier for kids to overcome the initial hurdle to get their bodies moving. Receiving a package in the mail from Zamzee for accomplishing a movement goal is motivating and fun.
