    The quickest money I've made online was through Panel Opinion. I clicked on a link that offered £60 for a 45 minute interview via a webcam. I was part of a small group who took part. The interview actually lasted an hour but I was paid £60 into Paypal a couple of hours later. Great work.

    While the main point about spending vouchers is generally true it is silly just to opt for cash without checking the redemption rate - with Swagbucks for instance the points needed for £85 of paypal credit would get £100 of Amazon vouchers and various other sites charge differing amounts depending what type of reward you are getting (at least one site makes a deduction from paypal rewards to cover the fees they are charged)

    Do spend gift vouchers ASAP

    If you're given the choice, opt to get paid in cash. If you get paid in gift vouchers, spend them ASAP. Doing so reduces your chances of being left with invalid vouchers should the retailer go bust on you. Plus it means you can't lose them or forget about them until they go out of date

I have recently been widowed and I get very lonely sometimes. Sitting chatting to people via the laptop was quite enjoyable for me. The interview did go on for an hour so if you have family or pets who might interrupt it could be difficult. At one point I thought my dogs were going to start a mad game round the living room and start barking. I somehow had to maintain my concentration on the webcam whilst trying to calm two dogs that had been quiet for far too long.

    Very true, I am a teacher who does lots of youtube videos, so being on cam doesnt really bother me. And the amount of super noodles I could get for £65 is well worth the effort....

    Average of just over £3,000 a year for zero outlay, so includes surveys, competitions etc but not things that were simply a good deal like haggling down contracts, using cashback sites etc.

    My husband and I live basically paycheck to paycheck.

    Iíve had this feeling of fear since. My husband was I started looking for different websites with freelance jobs as Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr, Periodix, ZipRecruiter, Indeed etc. And Amazon Mech Tasks
    And some people suggested me this forum for checking opportunities.
    Currently, I started searching via Periodix. But I'm not sure how it works. Just signed up.

    Who knows any other options?
