    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.

    Completely forgot about Swago. I'm trying to complete my daily task list for the first time in a long time. I rarely have the patience to be honest, and now I'm reminded why. I simply cannot get nCrave to work. It just comes up and says the offer currently isn't available. It's the only thing left to complete my daily task list. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Been banging my head against the wall for the past hour trying to figure it out. Cleared cache/cookies, tried different browsers, and different devices... still nothing. Disabled my Adblocker on my laptop and suddenly it's worked, yay! Not sure why it didn't work on my phone, maybe I hadn't left it long enough after trying, and failing on my laptop.

    to be honest, the daily to do list is worth so little, it is really not worth trying to complete it all if it is doesn't work.

    I do what I can and if it credits, great. If it doesn't, I don't waste time on it. Unfortunately you need to for the swago board.

    loads having issues with ncrave, but you have to ask loads of questions to find out what everyone is doing, what device, etc to find out why not working. sometimes there is no rhyme nor reason why it doesn't work.

    #4 Prolific Academic
    #4 Prolific Academic

    One of my favourite survey sites, although I don't do enough of the surveys at the moment.

    If you want to sign up, please use a referral from this board and don't forget to leave your own.
    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5267356&highlight=prolific+academ ic

    What is Prolific Academic?

    It is a site created to help University academics complete their thesis/degrees etc by finding them people willing to complete their questionnaires for payment.

    Most questionnaires are short and pay well. Some of the questionnaires are interesting and definitely give you food for thought. Some are just plain weird! But hey if you are getting paid for it....

    On Prolific, you get paid via PayPal or Circle.

    After you complete your first study, you will need to wait until your submission is approved by the researcher (usually within 1-3 days, sometimes longer). This short waiting period is important to ensure quality control.

    Our initial payment threshold is only £5 (with a fee). If you want to minimise fees, then wait until you have accumulated £20. By doing so you will avoid fees if you're in the UK/US by cashing out with circle. Below that amount, circle cash outs are charged 1% + 10p fee.
    PayPal cash outs are charged PayPal's 2.9% + 20p fee.

    To get paid, simply click on the "Get Paid"-button in your participant account. It usually takes less than 48 hours for your payment to be processed, but in times of high throughput it can take up to 5 days.

    If your PayPal/Circle email address is different from the one you signed up with on Prolific, it will be no problem to enter the correct PayPal/Circle email in your participant account.

    You don't always get notified of new surveys, they sometimes email you, but if you are near a pc/smartphone with free time, worth checking throughout the day.

    Some more information on it.

    #5 Shop and Scan with Kantar
    #5 Shop and Scan with Kantar (not Nielsen, they are a different company)

    If you are interested in earning vouchers, just for scanning your food shopping,this is the company for you.

    Sign up here and wait for them to contact you.

    https://www.volunteer4panels.com/

    Please note, you will need a PC or laptop to work with these as you need to submit barcodes scanned and this can only be done via these methods, not tablets or iPads.

    Kantar Worldpanel is a leading company in the UK running consumer panels. We operate a number of different panels looking at purchasing and usage of many things from Groceries to Fashion.

    As a panel member you'll receive regular rewards - usually in the form of points which can be exchanged for high street gift vouchers. You'll also have access to competitions and prize draws as well as other member benefits.

    The information provided by our panels is used by manufacturers and retailers to understand how popular, or not, the products they make and sell are. So your help really makes a difference.

    What you do is scan your food shopping using a handheld barcode scanner. Then upload that information once or more a week to the website. You can also upload receipts to them.

    You earn 1100 points weekly for uploading barcodes. It doesn't matter how many you upload, the payment is the same.

    When you reach 10000 points you can cash out for a £10 reward voucher.

    There are no referrals for this scheme.

    #6 Sell used printer cartridges

    Don't throw away those used ink cartridges, send them for recycling for money.

    It is best to check which sites pay more for your cartridges and how much you have to earn before you get paid.

    Here are some sites, I haven't checked prices etc, so you need to do that.

    1. http://www.takeback.ltd.uk/sell/sell.aspx

    2. http://www.therecyclingfactory.com/sell-ink-cartridges/

    3. http://www.ink2u.co.uk/empties

    4. http://www.cashforcartridges.co.uk/

    5. http://www.printercartridgerecycling.co.uk/

    6. http://www.tonermanltd.co.uk/



    If anyone knows anymore please post and I will add them to the list.

    to be honest, the daily to do list is worth so little, it is really not worth trying to complete it all if it is doesn't work.

    Aesop.........do you run engame.tc on laptop whilst doing other things? If so how? Mine only credits if that tab is at the forefront for me.

    Just tried running it on my tablet but its not crediting and it could be a good little extra for instagc seeing as its no longer on neobux.

    No. I run the pop out video tab on watch videos on instagc as laptop as that does not need you to be watching. Others have done it by popping it out as a separate tab and reducing size of tab so it can sit on side but it involves delicate manoeuvre moving the mouse ever so slowly so it thinks it is On there and playing.

    I only run on laptop when not using it so can leave mouse pad On it.

    I run engagemetv on tablet. What I do is start running and check the number of videos watched is going up. I then check app that I shortcut to my phone to make sure crediting. Then I can leave it.

    If it's not crediting I choose another set of video. I find gaming and app trailers currently crediting for me.

    dodgy hug time lynne. for hubby being made redundant unexpectedly, for your rotten cold.

    Does this affect you and DH going to work abroad next year?

    so sorry for both of you. It's a horrible feeling being made redundant even if you are expecting it. Unexpected is even worse.

    We are still hoping to hear about our job abroad - probably get more info next month. Meanwhile having to jump through endless hoops to get what should rightfully be DH's redundancy and notice payments etc. Oh well.
