  • Hi @Sue-UU I have apps on my phone where i 'snap' or take pics of my shopping receipts, then answer a few questions... and get paid for it. There are a few about! 

    I've just been paid for Prolific surveys £16.14 so I've added that to the pot too :)

    A happy Wednesday - Potters. I hope you all had a really lovely weekend, are enjoying the week! 
    I've been to the Dentist today where he did far more than I thought, and it's bloomin painful!!!  :s:s 
    Hugs and best wishes to all those who are poorly or low in any way. Take care and get well soon. 3

    Well, I'm ok thanks Saver-upper and I hope you are too.
    Well done you with having potted £20.00!!! Good for you. 😊

    An excellent way holding off the arid spell for a bit longer Vicky!!! 😂 Very wise too! 😊

    That's a brilliant way to save LMD!!!
    However, we have our shopping delivered, ah but we always have a receipt with it, so I could do the same, or I guess it would all need to be done in store, am I right? 🤨

    Brilliant work with Prolific! I've finished with YouGov, it takes too long for £50, which reminds me I forgot to Declare it!!!! 😵‍💫🤩 I'll think about doing Prolific though! 🤔😀
    Thanks a lot for the help LMD!😊

    Enjoy your Wednesday folks, Thursday too!

    Sue

    SueUU if you can get onto Prolific, it is very worthwhile. I joined mid- January, and so far have earned £521.Today, I did 3 surveys worth £15 each!! (This is not average, but it does happen occasionally that you get a run of high- earning surveys).

    Tonight I potted my first two £2 coins for SPC 17.

  • I've gave up with YouGov too, as you say it takes far too long for a payout.  I do Prolific and use those payments to overpay my mortgage.  Thanks to @LittleMissDetermined for the receipt thingy.  I couldn't get on Shoppix which seems to be the best as I didn't have a referral code so had to join the wait list (don't expect to hear anything from that though  :( ).  I did however download Shopmium for vouchers and a free bar of chocolate which I am keeping just for me!  Might even pot some of my grocery coupon savings.

    These always seem to start far too early.  Is there something that runs either January to December or for the financial year?
    Paid off the last of my unsecured debts in 2016. Then saved up and bought a property. Current aim is to pay off my mortgage as early as possible. Currently over paying every month. Mortgage due to be paid off in 2036 hoping to get it paid off much earlier. Set up my own bespoke spreadsheet to manage my money.

    Thanks so much for your advice about Prolific Saver-upper, I quite understand that's just a general price you earned for the 3 surveys, but with your help and LMDs they're totally different to what it's taken me to earn £200 with YouGov, and each survey is sooo long! 🥴🥱 Thanks so much for your help S-u and more to your pot!!! 😀

    Oh the rain like it barely ever stops Siju, and I watched the 10 Day Trend and the emphasis was on rain esp for the SW. Mind you that's via the Met Office who are based at Exeter, sooo. 
    My tooth is very painful. It broke in half way (the wrong way) while eating a Ryvita a couple of weeks ago. Trouble is it's next to the front one and is now only a painful stub waiting for a crown in a fortnight's time. Thanks so much for your thoughts. 😊
    Enjoy your babysitting and well done with the £5 potted!!😊

    Well done you Hetty! A darned good idea with the Shopmium! 😋 Are there folk on other parts of MSE site with referral codes to help you with Shoppix? Worth a look. There used to be folk doing them for YouGov, hardly any wonder! 😵‍💫

    I've no idea datlex. Are you still with us here on SPC? If so and you've potted money this year, why not declare all you've saved on SPC 16?


    Have a wonderful WEEKEND folks!!
