    When you compare different quotes for insurances of any sorts it's also possible to make a couple pounds and you don't need to buy anything, so I would add another tenner for doing this.

    Ok, but "I made £60 on YouGov and Topcashback in quite a few years" isn't really going to make it much better.

    I don't mind sharing information. Basically I have joined about 30 different sites. I mainly do surveys, get paid to websites, tasks via Crowdflower and about 10% of my earnings are now from referrals.

    I have a website, which I'm not allowed to post here of course, but that generates me a little income. I mainly just talk about what I've earned, what I've cashed out and how long payments take, things like that. Nothing special that anyone else isn't doing. I put in about 2-5 hours a day, spread out throughout the day, 5 days a week. If you worked it out as 25 hours a week it would only equate to not much more than minimum wage, but it has taken me a year to build up to this level. So it isn't something you can quit your job for, well, not unless you have a husband like mine who pays all the bills and looks after you :rotfl:

    Note: My signature here is about £5,000 out now, if not more. My figure is more like £14,000 but that includes £4,000 of bingo winnings and other non-taxable earnings (small cash gifts etc), so I never include those in my figures.

    PM me your website please!
