    I've achieved it! 351.88. Got some good ebay sales and digged out an unused ipod which I sold at CEX. And reached the £50 rewards mark for YouGov surveys which I've cashed in. Gonna do it again in July... this really gave me the motivation to bring in extra pennies!

    Thanks for forums like this, I’ve started on the journey to make the most of TopCashBack, online surveys, Swagbucks, etc. since Jan this year (2022) to date (28 June, so 6mths) I’ve managed to get over £450 from these side tasks.
    Swagbucks: lifetime since Jan2022: 41,849SB (equiv to £300 in vouchers) 
    Microsoft Rewards: 83,313pts (equiv to £50 in vouchers)
    Qmee surveys: £81
    Curious Cat surveys: £29
    Honestly, they do suck up ALOT of your personal time and often drives you insane with the number of survey rejections, especially after you poured so much time into them… but if you’re doing it while watching tv or something, you could do warn afew bob from this. I was surprised how much was possible, but I do warn folks to mind your neck bending down onto smartphones, and mind your mental health when you do get stressed from the Surveys! Just like the saying “pennies make pounds”, they do accumulate but watch the expected time to complete surveys… some hint that it is only worth 1p/minute of your life… those aren’t worth it. I usually go for those at least 5-10p/min. Best of luck!
