  • Hey doodledoo,

    Just finished writing my third review on dooyoo.97 more to go!

    If you can do around 3 or 4 a day, then it works out that you'll earn around £50 per month for writing reviews!! Great eh!

    It get's a bit tedious after a bit, I'm bored now after writing three but if you do a few a day it shouldn't be too bad. And other people can rate your reviews which give you more dooyoo miles, so you'll get to that 50,000 miles limt quicker!!!

    Just managed 2 reviews on Dooyoo, is it really 100 reviews to get £50.... not sure I can find that many things to review!

    Havent done as much this evening as I could have as havent been too well so have been sat here online with a hot water on my stomach, however will have to make up for my mediocre efforts tomorrow.

    I am pledging to writing at least 5 more reviews on Dooyoo tomorrow!
    I also need to find all my receipts to claim back some expenses at work and therefore pay that straight off my credit card, looking at about £250 there! You'd think I'd be motivated enough to do that wouldnt you?! hence why I needed this thread!

    Hows everyone else getting on?

  • I'd be motivated to do that CAFCgirl if I had that many expenses to claim back!!! I'm sure its 100 reviews to write. You get 500 miles per review and you need 50,000 to cash it in. Just wrote 3 reviews, going to try and do 3 more tonight, and then 4 tomorrow.

    Just trying to find some things to put on ebay aswell! Hope you get better soon CAFCgirl (take it that stands for Charlton Athletic???)

  • Good idea Mike I might aim for 5 a day for now, £50 a month can't be sniffed at lol. Knowing my luck they will slate my reviews lol.

    CAFC- you must do that expense claim thats a good chunk of money. I will remind you every day till you do it lol

    I know I know, shameful of me really.
    Its more because £160 of it was meant to be paid for me (hotel accomodation) but when I got there it hadnt been, and I couldnt get hold of the person so I ended up using my credit card, and normally any expenses for me (a retail store manager) are taken from petty cash, but we dont have enough in petty cash for me to claim it so I need to find out how to get it from head office. I promise to do this on monday! Promise promise promise!

    Ok one more review on dooyoo done. I didnt realise clicking 'more' would bring up so many more things to review, there are hotels, tourist attractions etc. Im gonna be well away now I think! Just had 2 of them reviewed as well so I got 60 extra miles for that.

    Feeling much better thanks, although now Im a bit too hot LOL
    And yes tragically that is what it stands for....

    Hi all I would like to join. I have just over £19.3K of debt left to clear, but would aim for the £15K by Xmas 09. As I have paid my interest bearing debts until my 0% runs out in about April 09 onwards I am planning to stooze the money but count that as paid off if that's okay... I have £1.5K stoozing currently... (so net debts are 17.8K):money:

    I'm in temporary job so altho I earn good money I feel quite vulnerable in the current economic climate - so stoozing also means that I would be able to pay my mortgage etc if the worst happens... I'm already part of the £10 a day challenge too.

    I think I will join DooYoo and try and write some reviews. If anyone wants me to rate their reviews on the homepage thing once I've joined let me know. Similarly if anyone else wants to join ipoints, moneybackmadness, greasypalm, pigsback etc or be a follower on Bview for me so I earn referral money please pm me. ;) Hope I haven't offended anyone with that shameless plug!:p From the sites I've joined so far - Quidco seem to offer the best rates (and don't pay for referrals in case you wondered!).
    During 2020: Target 1) Reduce debt from £25.1K @ 0% Now down to £17,357 Target 2) Overpay mortgage - now @ £777 OP Target 3) Improve pensions Target 4) Declutter 52 bags - Done with help of skip. 5) Lose 21lbs - now at 15lb lost 6) Build/maintain EF/Savings pots at £1K or more by 31/12/20
  • Hi savingholmes,

    That sounds a good idea about rating eachother reviews. Maybe we can all rate eachothers reviews and get some miles back for it?? I'm on dooyoo as mike1984 so if you let me know who you are on there (and anyone else) and I'll rate your reviews and if you rate mine. We'll get to the £50 mark quicker then!

    Welcome aboard! The hat is still mine though!haha

    LOL @ Holmes.... nothing shameful in that.
