    Pay for birthdays and Christmas 2018 with surveys

    Pay for birthdays and Christmas 2018 with surveys 27th Nov 17 at 4:51 PM
    Hey,

    So I know a lot of us do surveys to supplement our spending and this is something that I plan to keep up even when I a debt free.

    I have decided that 2018 is the time to keep a better track of what I spend my survey earnings on and I have decided to use what I earn to pay for birthday and Christmas 2018.

    Who wants to join me in this epic (I think it is) challenge?!?!?!

    My list of survey sites;

    * Valued Opinions
    * Pinecone Research
    * Onepoll
    * IPSOS
    * Prolific Academic
    * Populuslive
    * Opinion Outpost

    I know there are probably many more but I limit myself to these as I find I wouldn't have the time to do anymore

    Ideally I would love to do surveys all day long but alas I have to do some real work

    Could I join please? I had already planned to aim for my vouchers to pay for Christmas, can't be much more of a challenge to add in birthdays too surely?! I will struggle a little, especially at the start of the year as I have 3 birthdays and exams in January, lack of time doesn't work too well with survey sites but I will try my best.

    Glad I could be your first official person! I have 5 exams for my degree (maths), a lot of revision is required, hence why I may not find much time for surveys over the next 6/7 weeks and I have absolutely nothing sitting in my amazon account thanks to this Christmas.

    Oh a maths whiz eh!

    Will all be worth it when you have passed.

    Oh me too, I just printed off a returns voucher to send something back so will get about £12.60 back in the next couple of weeks but have already added to by gift wishlist to spend that as soon as it goes in

    I already do this to an extent. Earnings are variable. I have used Amazon vouchers to buy birthday presents during the year.

    I wouldn't go that far, already feeling way out of my depth. It will be worth it if I can make it out the other side. Off to try and finish off my assignment that is due in tomorrow.

    Quite annoying, wish it would stay the same amount each month then I could plan ahead better!

    Do you want to join in anyway?

    I have 8 points with populous at the minute (had a cheque recently which went towards this year), am only using that and Swagbucks, although I know I do belong to some others. I'll have to look through my inbox
