    Valued Opinons is the same company as mum's opinions - make sure you check your profile etc on the site as I've got quite a few vouchers from both companies.

    does anyone have a link to the daily clicks they normally do, i think im signed up to all the sites but only do clicks on pigsback, never really found the others!

    sorry if its a stupid question but i want to make the most out of these vouchers for next christmas.


  • Hi Lunar, to get a list of the daily clicks you can do you can pm eagerlearner with your email & they will send you a fantastic list to follow with lots of sites I'd never heard of too & lots of great tips :)
    They kindly sent it to me yesterday & it is great. I am going to try & make most of my free christmas cash by clicking away each day! Good luck with your clicking!

    Hi guys, my baby steps continue! I have done another lightspeed survey and have spent ages filling in profiles for steps, but over the course of the year I am sure they will add up to quite a bit!

    I am quite excited about the prospect of achieving this - I have just realised that I have more or less achieved it already this year, thanks to MSE, so think what I can achieve for 2008 with even more focus!!

  • Id like to join this as well if you will have me - I have 4 step children + 2 grandchildren (step) and one of my own + various hangers on and such like - so Christmas is very expensive in the Liloandstitch household - and baby stitch gets more expensive every year. I have done really well on pigsback this year (about 150 in vouchers) and have done some surveys, and this has made life this year a bit easier but to get it nearer to free would be FAB. For something which happens every year at the same time, I seem to be totally unprepared every time!!!!!!

    WOW! Liloandstitch - that's a great amount in Pigsback vouchers:) How much do you reckon you spend at Christmas? I'm making a note to see how much I spend this year, so that I can actually budget real figures, not wishful figures lol

    Ii'm going to start off from where I am now, as it will get confusing otherwise! :o

    I've gone back into my accounts to see where they stand:

    Current totals:

    Pigsback £3.14
    Opinion Bar £2.40
    Pureprofile £17.95
    Global Test Market 620 points (approx £12.40)
    Mutualpoints 455 points (approx £3) (*There is an affiliate sign-up link available which makes funds for MSE: Please use this link to sign up as it helps to give something back to this site too!*)
    Topcashback £4.05

    Ciao £4.92
    Boots Advantage Points £46.57
    Moneybackmadness £14.07

    I'm not going to include Quidco as that money is already earmarked as part of our main income, especially as I'm on materrnity leave until June! :o
