起床就能赚钱?不是在说梦话吧?新应用Miles让你美梦成真。不管你是走路、打车、坐公交还是乘飞机,都可以获得积分并可以换取礼品卡和折扣券,是不是很诱人?

In a perfect world, everything would be free. Until then, earning discounts for doing things you would probably already be doing—like driving to work—is the next best thing.

在完美世界里,所有东西都是免费的。在这一天到来之前,做一些本来就得做的事——比如开车去上班——就能获得折扣应该算最大的美事了吧。

As spotted by The Daily Dot, a free iOS app called Miles lets you earn points simply by getting up and going somewhere, whether it's by foot, car, bus, or plane. Rack up enough points and you'll be able to redeem gift cards and discounts for retailers like Amazon, Starbucks and Whole Foods, to name a few.

据Daily Dot网站报道,一款名为Miles的免费苹果应用让你起床出门就能赚积分,无论是步行、乘车、乘巴士还是乘飞机。攒够了积分就可以换取礼品卡和亚马逊、星巴克、全食超市等零售商的折扣券。

The app is designed to encourage eco-friendly travel, so the amount of reward miles, or points, you earn depends on your mode of transport. One mile in a car translates to one mile earned through the app, but a ride in an Uber or Lyft will get you double the points. Public transportation yields three points per mile, biking is five points per mile, and walking is 10 points per mile.

这款应用意在鼓励环保的出行方式,奖励给用户的积分多少取决于你所选择的交通工具。乘私家车走1英里(1.6千米)在应用上的积分为1分,但乘坐优步或来福车则会获得双倍积分。乘坐公共交通工具每英里可获得3分,骑车每英里可获得5分,而走路可获得10分。

Flying, on the other hand, will only accrue 0.1 points per mile. You won't have to log your trips either because they're recorded automatically in the app. Of course, for this to work, users have to allow the app to track their location at all times, which might make some people squeamish for privacy reasons. The app's CEO told The Verge that raw data collected from the app isn't shared with the company's partners—only abstract insights about your movement patterns.

然而,乘坐飞机每英里只能获得0.1个积分。用户无需填写旅行日志,该应用会自动帮你记录。当然,如果要实现自动记录,用户必须允许应用一直追踪自己的位置,这可能会因为隐私问题被一些人诟病。该应用的首席执行官告诉The Verge网站说,应用所收集到的原始数据不会和公司的合作伙伴共享,只会分享关于用户出行模式的抽象分析报告。

To contextualize how much you'd need to travel to reap the rewards, something like a $5 Starbucks or Amazon gift card requires 2500 reward miles (or 250 miles of walking, for instance). Still, if you're OK with sharing your travel patterns with companies, it's a passive way to cut costs on items you'd already be buying (like groceries, or your go-to morning latte).

那么你需要走多少路才能获得奖品呢?一张5美元(34元人民币)的星巴克折扣券或亚马逊礼品卡需要2500分(步行250英里所获得的积分)。另外,如果你愿意和其他公司分享你的出行模式,你购买日常物品(比如杂货或早晨的拿铁咖啡)还能获得减价。

The app isn't currently available on Android but it should be coming soon, according to The Daily Dot.

据Daily Dot网站报道,目前该应用无法在安卓系统中使用,但安卓版应该很快就能上线。
