    on the Skrill home page it says this

    'WITHDRAW FUNDS

    Move funds – including winnings – from Skrill to your bank account instantly.'

    so looks like you can do that anyway.

An alternative would be to use their prepaid mastercard, which you can use online and offline. the idea would be that you move the money from your Skrill account onto the prepaid card, which would appear to be free of transfer fees, then spend the money on the prepaid card. The card does have an annual fee of 10 EUR, but that is less than two transfers to your bank.

    Got this reply regards the £2 bonus


    Hello,



    Sorry for the delay. We have had to wait for data collection to finish before we can compile a list for the bonuses. This should hopefully be ready early next week.



    Again, I am very sorry for the delay.



    Best wishes,


    Alex

    Fingers crossed! My landlord has just told me he wants to sell my flat, so I'm going to need all the money I can get for moving!

    Good luck April Lady, PA isn't a reliable earner at the mo, do you do any other sites? Opinium research and panelbase aren't bad. Hope you find somewhere new quickly

    Thanks MLE. I do OnePoll, YouGov, eRewards for Nectar points and Valued Opinions (which often have the same surveys), and used to do MySurvey but have given up on them as their surveys always had errors and more often than not would have a problem on the submit page - incredibly frustrating.
    I'll have a look at those two - thanks. I think Panelbase surveys sometimes pop up under other guises!

    Ugh, I am beyond stressed about the flat situation for various reasons. It's keeping me awake at night!

    If you're looking for survey site recommendations I'd nominate NewVistaLive and PopulusLive; they both have a similar format to YouGov in that they generally email 1 or 2 surveys a week and you need to hit £50 to cash out, but whereas YouGov generally pays 25p - 75p per survey NewVistaLive will typically pay 75p - £2 and PopulusLive pays £1 - £3 so you should reach that £50 total a little faster.

    Yes I dumped Mysurvey long ago, Globaltestmarket followed recently for the same reasons you described! Another OK one is Yoursaypays - quick surveys similar to Onepoll but £20 cashout. If I think of any other good ones I'll let you know.

    Sounds stressful AprilLady and I really hope you get it sorted soon

    I really like YourSayPays, I'm just about to reach my second £20 payout; as you said it is similar to OnePoll but I generally find that a survey on YSP is much shorter than a survey on OP which pays the same amount i.e. a 10p survey on YSP will just take 30 seconds whereas on OP it could take a couple of minutes.

    A similar site which I quite like is ViewsBank; every weekday they have a poll question which you get 10p for voting in, so that's 50p a week for basically a few clicks. They also have occasional "assignments" which are usually short surveys similar to the ones on YSP and OP and which pay a little more. I've been a member for about 3 months and have just reached the £12 payout threshold so it's not a big earner by any means, but it's also very little effort and some of the poll questions are quite interesting and set off fun debates in the comments sections.
