ooooh pinecone is a fab survey company that pays £3 in luncheon vouchers or paypal, your choice. I take luncheon vouchers and was trying to save them for xmas but as money was so short, ended up using most for my food shopping. Have £6 stashed away though

rarely we get referral links and can refer people, otherwise you have to watch out for the banners and people posting on freebies and grabbit they have referrals.

there is one page that might have a working link. will have a look.

even better, they pay out a few days after you complete the survey that is why we all like it so much!



try these

A friend bought me a cuppa which I had been about to get myself - £1.50 (I KNOW!) and also - SMUG ALERT - I got down from the loft the Christmas cards and wrapping paper which I bought half price in the post Christmas sales. The receipt was still in the bag and I'd saved £12 - so I'm counting that as it's money I don't have to spend this year.

that's a good sign. Usually they don't register if they are full or not looking for a particular group.

That could mean in a few weeks you get the magic email I hope you do.

right off to bed. want to do some ebaying in morning before DS gets up

Morning everyone. Thanks so much for pinecone link Aesop. Have been trying to find a working link all month with no success!! Like Lemmings I got the we do not need anyone with your household group at the moment but will store your details for a few weeks incase we have an opening. That is the most I have ever got from them as in the past I have had a straight we are full and don't need anyone when I have clicked on the link.

Fingers crossed for the magic e-mail!! Pinecone sounds like it could make a nice contribution to the savings pot!!

Anyhow, kids not dressed yet and I am still in my dressing gown, so better get my derrier into gear and get off here!!! Will be another zero day for me today I's afraid!! Did make some progress last night though adding over 600 points onto maximiles - I joined last month but have only just got into gear with it by reading the threads about how to maximise points.

Today's target (well tonights target when kids in bed) is 5 ebay listings and add another 150 points to maximiles. Have a good day ev1 x

£5 a day June: £ 17.30
52 Week Money Challenge: £310 / £1378 (wk 22)

Hello Everyone

My first update for this challenge.

So far I have got a £30 off voucher for littlewoods. I was going to get some new boots so this will knock a big chunk of what I was due to pay anyway. Also £2.04 0f accrued points. I also had £10 on my nectar card used towards shopping .

Total so far £42.04/310 - 13.5%

Off to advertise my old industrial sewing machine in the local paper. Fingers crossed it will sell.
Lightbulb April 2007 £32500 - July 2014 £3267. Long hauler no 172. Paydo Xmas 2014- #49 - £803.64/4032 19.93% One debt v's 100 days - chapter 16 - £43.64/647. Pay off DMP early savings pot £26.64

it is entirely upto you how long you spend each day. I do NOSO, daily poll, watch 10 videos, do the daily update survey and play videos. Probably takes half hour, but have DS constantly talking if I do during day, I try to in the evening.

And then occasionally you need to do some of the other stuff for extra swagbucks, but do searches using their toolbar, win random points, and refer friends if you can get them interested, it all adds up.

Do you do maximiles too?

the videos.

watch a video, click on rate it when it comes up, usually 20 seconds, then rate it, click register my vote, then when it says your vote has been registered, click on refresh, do this twice. you can "watch" each vid 3 times and earn points. Do this for every vid. when you refresh it automatically adds points, so you don't need to watch it again.

there are some free offers on the right hand side that earn you extra points, and if you sign up for emails they will send you emails that you click through and earn 5 points on. also the surveys especially the 15 minutes ones are worth 150 points. it all adds up soon.

this thread should help too.

I've been on about two weeks and checked out two £5 Amazon vouchers, so definitely possible to make £50 by April. If you sign up, the referrers board has a thread in there with links. If you do sign up and want any hints on maximising your points, let me know and I can try and offer some tips.
