    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.

    Thanks for the info Aesop.

    Lynne......so sorry to hear your news about husbands job. It amazes me how many companies seem to lay off staff just before Christmas. I know anytime is a bad time to lose your job but Christmas is a really really horrible time for it to happen.

    Hope he gets everything due to him! XX

    Tomorrow have some more 'stuff' to sort out and then get the place ready for the new windows coming on Friday, so don't think I'll really get back to it until after all that.

    Hope you all have a great couple of days and do well

    Oh forgot to mention on instagc people are saying that some videos run with more ads in the evening. Which is what you need for payout. Worth looking into it.

Sooooo laurenturner......if you read this.....thanks for being my referral. (Im assuming she comes on this thread as she has it in her signature but the name doesnt ring any bells.

    Hope they get a move on and new ones back in as soon as, as it's going to be freeeeezing

    Evening all. Had a day off yesterday. Back to it today, with £9.16 made MB'ing.

    I've made 288 SB's in the last 3 days, which for me is a good effort. I have 4 squares left on Swago:
    * Refer a friend (will struggle with this)
    * Earn SB from referral (see above)
    * Redeem swag code from swag button (hopefully get this - just never seem to see swag codes in time)
    * Earn from survey attempt through mobile (always seem to get filtered out of surveys).

    Anybody had any joy with games to earn SB's? I installed an iOS app and have to reach level 31 to get XX SB's. I did this 2 days ago, but still haven't had the SB's for it. Not sure if there's usually a delay?

    PS do you get email notifications on your phone. I subscribed to swagbucks code thread and usually see email pop up. Then I log onto pc and add it for swago.
