I've just managed to claim back 730-odd in overpaid tax and uniform allowance I'm kinda tempted to add it into the total for this month, but think I'll just go for the 10 a day instead.

hi im new to this but read the last few pages of the old thread and thought it was a brilliant idea for me to join in to help keep me focused. im going to aim for 5 a day please.

a quick question, can i count amounts saved on shopping if iv used a coupon? (like above post, if i used that 5 coupon can i count that as making 5??) i dont really have anything to sell so im mainly going to be doing surveys and not spending! thanks

Welcome to you both BJD and twiglet

BJD - yes you can add money you have saved with coupons etc as well

Good luck to both of you (and everyone else for this month!!)

I'm off the blocks already with 5 from swaggers and 2.15 from app trailers

So 7.15 to start me off

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about a project Nielsen is running at the moment where you send them once a month any fliers you get in your credit card statement? I am sure I wouldn't have agreed to do it for nothing, lol but can't remember signing up for it or what they were offering!

and welcome to the thread

I always say to people if you save money using vouchers that you haven't earnt, ie a conditional spend 5 off, then if you are going to transfer the money to your savings account or pay off debts, etc with it, include it. It makes you feel better when you see your savings rising or your debts decreasing.

that sounds fab they are getting their hands into so many pies at the moment. Just looked on their website, they are going to take over Arbitron too, who I currently do mobile with, they look at what websites I visit on my mobile etc. and I get paid 5 a month for it

But here is an e-mail address you can contact them on and they will let you know how to access your account to see how you are getting paid!

Are you going to transfer 24 to your savings or debts? Then I would put it as 24 well done on negotiating a discount.
