    Make upto 10 a day in December 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Nov 17 at 11:42 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 124th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make 10 a day.

    You don't.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra 10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of 1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to 5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for 10 a day. It really is entirely upto you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for extra at the end of the month.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money and these shared ideas help all of us to learn new ways to help cut debt or earn/save money.

    What cannot be added:
    Wages from your main job

    What can be added:
    Overtime
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly. Below are some ideas to get you started and a great place to read when you're in need of inspiration.

    Sell your old books/DVDs/CDs/games here:
    Amazon.co.uk, play.com, webuybooks, zapper, CEX, MusicMagpie, and a few more too

    Ebay - a place to sell anything and everything. (You will be suprised at what sells!)

    Gumtree, Preloved, cquot, ebid, craigslist, vivastreet, netmums.com, trade-it , Friday ad, priceminster - these are all places you can sell items too.

    Survey sites
    - mysurvey and pinecone, prolific academic tend to be the best but there are many more it really depends on you finding the ones that work best for you - toluna, harris poll, valued opinions etc

    Join cashback sites like Topcashback and Quidco - type in surveys in the search engine and some will pay you to join up with them.

    Mobile phone to recycle? Try http://mobilevaluer.com/ but also check other selling sites like ebay, Facebook selling, gumtree, etc.

    etsy and folksy - If you enjoy making crafts why not have a go at selling them on etsy or folksy. They've been getting increasingly busier each year.

    Trying to find other ways to make money? Check out the Boost Your Income board. It is full of ideas, including survey companies and product testing.

    Want to help someone else out? Sign up through their referral on the referral board, and leave yours, so someone else can do the same for you.

    Keep reading for lots more ideas on how to make more money each month.

    This month's challenge is to try and make 310 (or any amount of course!).


    Thanks lynnejk for all your help with updating challengers list and all the support you give on this thread.

    Good luck everybody. Remember to post any questions or comments that you have, and let's go on encouraging each other throughout this month.

    Evening all. Had a day off yesterday. Back to it today, with 9.16 made MB'ing.

    I've made 288 SB's in the last 3 days, which for me is a good effort. I have 4 squares left on Swago:
    * Refer a friend (will struggle with this)
    * Earn SB from referral (see above)
    * Redeem swag code from swag button (hopefully get this - just never seem to see swag codes in time)
    * Earn from survey attempt through mobile (always seem to get filtered out of surveys).

    Anybody had any joy with games to earn SB's? I installed an iOS app and have to reach level 31 to get XX SB's. I did this 2 days ago, but still haven't had the SB's for it. Not sure if there's usually a delay?

    Feeling s**t today with a heavy cold, and constant sneezing has now given me a headache

    Bad news first
    Whilst on hols last week DH received a 'phone call from his work. Long story short - his company has gone into immediate administration and he, together with a few thousand others in the UK, have been made instantly redundant. Cue us running around like headless chickens yesterday and today, trying to get all the info we can and filling in endless forms

    Good news second
    U Gov pay-out eventually reached and 50 better off

    Off to bed with a hot toddy

    Hope you all have a great day tomorrow and stay dry

    Jess do you have anything installed on your phone like the incompass app, it uses a vpn, mobile xpression, it uses a vpn. Trying to think what other apps use it.

    The vpn uses a virtual private network so could be registered anywhere, it is usually registered to the company using it, ie incompass in uk and mobile xpression in us.

    but it flags up on swagbucks, instagc and onepulse radar. not sure how, never looked into that technical side, but something they use to track ip addresses shows vpns.

    Do you have anything like that on your device?

    the other thing... someone on samsung said her phone did an update and gps system was putting her in canada. After a lot of testing/resetting phone etc, turned out could be 2 things. She had an app installed which was based in canada, that could have been giving false reading and her sim card was corrupted. Once that was replaced, everything went back to normal.

    I have a friend who says her ipad I think keeps saying she is not in UK. That is definitely a settings issue.

    I am still in a very slow conversation with OnePulse. They have now confirmed I have a VPN, which is why I am blocked. I just have no idea why that would be?! Swagbucks seems to be working fine..

    I have 5 squares left on the Swago board, but can't see how I can make more than one row/column. I have:
    1. Refer a friend to Swagbucks
    2. Redeem your Swagbucks for a gift card (will be able to do this today or tomorrow)
    3. Earn SB from your referral
    4. Enter the holiday giveaway (not looked into what this is yet)
    5. Redeem a Swagcode from the Swagbutton (unlikely given I don't actually need to buy anything!)

    I also have 3 collector's bills at the moment, so should probably get on with some searching to see if I can find more.

See Aesop's comments above about subscribing to the topic on MSE. I've done that to get email notifications. I have that, and the mobile survey left to do to complete the board. Put quite some effort in this time, for a change.

    Just playing on my new laptop - joint Birthday and Christmas present from DH.

    Since I last posted, I have had and other 5 from Swagbucks, 7.50 from Sainsburys which paid for my DB's partner's proscecco for Christmas and I've also had 80 for my birthday but I won't count that!

    So my total is 36.15

    I have been accepted for a position through a temp agency but as there are a lot of forms and things to do first (it is a governmental role) I haven't started yet. It could be for up to 3 months and it will be my main job when it starts, but the temp agency offered me two days temp work somewhere as a one off and I will count those earnings as it was unexpected, so that will be about 96 after taxes.

    34.94 for me today, MB'ing.

    Now to do a WhatUsersDo test, and then do a bit of Swagbucking. I keep missing the Swagcodes Aesop, the email notifications just go to my 'Other' folder, so I'm going to have to sort that out. Missed one today by 4 minutes...frustrating.

    Struggling with the swago board on swagbucks... refer a friend and earn from the referral specifically but struggling to get a line in any direction!

    Really need to find some other money making apps/sites to use... other than topcashback, swagbucks, checkoutsmart and clicksnap I don't do any others at the moment... I used to a couple of years ago but cant for the life of me remember what lol

    Made 40 on Betfair today which was VERY unexpected but a lovely surprise.

    Have found quite a bit more stuff that I need to shift on facebook/ebay so hopefully I will have more space and more to add shortly. Just need to find the motivation to list it!

    I am still in a very slow conversation with OnePulse. They have now confirmed I have a VPN, which is why I am blocked. I just have no idea why that would be?! Swagbucks seems to be working fine..

    What phone are you on Android?

    What new apps have you Installed lately.
    One pulse won't let you earn until you remove vpn


    If on Android, goto settings, wireless and networks, click on vpn. See what's under that tab. Mine is clear.

    If apple, settings, general, vpn and see what is listed under there
