    Make upto 10 a day in December 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Nov 17 at 11:42 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 124th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make 10 a day.

    You don't.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra 10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of 1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to 5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for 10 a day. It really is entirely upto you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for extra at the end of the month.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money and these shared ideas help all of us to learn new ways to help cut debt or earn/save money.

    What cannot be added:
    Wages from your main job

    What can be added:
    Overtime
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly. Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX, MusicMagpie, and a few more too

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. (You will be suprised at what sells!)

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites
    - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    Join cashback sites like Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? Try http://mobilevaluer.com/ but also check other selling sites like ebay, Facebook selling, gumtree, etc.

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Trying to find other ways to make money? Check out the Boost Your Income board. It is full of ideas, including survey companies and product testing.

    Want to help someone else out? Sign up through their referral on the referral board, and leave yours, so someone else can do the same for you.

    Keep reading for lots more ideas on how to make more money each month.

    This month's challenge is to try and make 310 (or any amount of course!).


    Thanks lynnejk for all your help with updating challengers list and all the support you give on this thread.

    Good luck everybody. Remember to post any questions or comments that you have, and let's go on encouraging each other throughout this month.

    #2 Referral Board
    #2 Referral Board

    I was on it earlier looking for something and spotted a referral thread for something that I ALREADY do. It hadn't occurred to me to post my referral on there!

    I know you may only get one, but one is one more than 0. Also if you are on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, don't forget to post your referrals there too. You will be surprised who signs up.

    I know a few ladies who post their referrals in Facebook selling groups and they get quite a few people signing up and making them money!

    so get your referrals out there!

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/forumdisplay.php?f=42

    I post my referrals on various sites and social media. So never really sure where people are signing up from.

    But this month someone use my HP printer ink referral, so I have saved myself money for this month

    So if you are being lazy about getting your referrals out there, now is the time to do it!!!

    #3 Swagbucks
    #3 Swagbucks
    This is a very popular site with moneymakers everywhere. The site is based in the US but there is a UK version. We get daily challenges which if you achieve gives you bonus swagbucks the next month.
    You can watch videos, play games, run apps that have videos, complete surveys and sign up for offers. You can even shop online and earn swagbucks. I use it for argos. I reserve and collect, after clicking through swagbucks shop and then a month later, I get my swagbucks for shopping at argos.
    You can cash out for paypal uk or amazon vouchers uk. Make sure you select UK or if you are in US, leave as amazon.com.
    I usually cash out 5 but you can cash out at more. There are also 3 amazon vouchers available.
    If you follow swagbucks on twitter or facebook, they have competitions and bonus swagbuck codes.
    But there is a dedicated swagbuck thread so you don't miss out on codes, although they are usually only valid for an hour.
    You can redeem for other vouchers, I know they introduced M and S, but amazon and paypal tend to be the favourites.

    Hi Aesop, can you put me down for 1 a day again, please?

    So far I have 20p from CitizenMe. I finally discovered that having a verified Paypal account was to do with Paypal rather than Citizenme, and so was able to sort it out.

    (I only knew because Opinion Outpost refused to pay out unless I verified, and helpfully gave me a direct link to the process! The payment doesn't seem to have cleared yet, though so I'll wait to add it when it has.)

    Topcashback Xmas Treats Giveaway
    For anyone wanting to play the Topcashback Xmas Treats Giveaway, here is a little guide.



    First of all, you must be signed upto Topcashback to play. If you aren't, sign up via the referral board and remember to leave your own referral.

    Then log into topcashback here

    https://www.topcashback.co.uk/home

    You have to use a browser, not the app, as it doesn't work on there.

    Once logged in, you should be able to see this screen at the bottom of your page, it's a pop up.




    solve the clue (or just search on here for the answer) and then search topcashback for the website. Click on the website cashback page, and you should see a hummingbird whizz onto your screen.




    click on the hummingbird and it will tell you what you have won.

    You can check your prizes on the prizeboard



    There are also other hummingbirds on other pages

    We!!!8217;ll also be posting daily cryptic clues on our Facebook & Twitter pages, giving you the chance to find out where and when you can find more hummingbirds. Once you've caught the hummingbird connected to today's daily clue, there will still be more to find so keep looking!

    Good luck to all. I won 20p yesterday
