    ~Make upto 10 a day in October 2017 ~ everybody most welcome 30th Sep 17 at 10:36 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody



    This is the 122nd 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!).
    lynnejk is assisting me and will create the challengers list and update it.

    She will also be answering any questions she can help with and here for general advice. Having been a challenger for a while, she knows her stuff. Thank you lynnejk for your help.

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

    Had a good week and made 167.37 matched betting, keep banging through the surveys and am getting close to draw outs on a few sites.

    I think I have slight hording tendancies so am hoping to have a good clear out and clean up before crimbo, hopefully selling anything I can to boost the coffers as well. Got books all over, full shleves, in cupboards, boxed up in rooms and the loft, really need to get rid of a load.

    Nothing from the RM surveys so I assume not going to be a quick join with them, will forget about it and if it finally ever starts up it will be a bonus then.

    Just started using JobSpotter today as I saw something on a local community noticeboard. Will see how that works out for me as I don't see too many around.

    Has anyone used Ipsos Mediacell+ app? I got the chance to join thro a swagbucks survey but I'm a little wary! I know Ipsos as a company and have done surveys for them before but never installed anything. The remuneration seems good for little work tho! Thanks x

    If you don't already have a Circle account, please pop over to the referrals board and sign up via my referral link and I'll get an additional mystery bonus Don't forget to leave your own referral link over there too!

    Ooh.. so excited I had to post! I got invited to a panel which has come to an end after 3 months. As I did all the activities, I got an extra 8 bonus and then they selected some people who properly participated with good comments to get an extra star bonus which I got. I now have 50 added into Valued Opinions!

    Will only add it once I extract as much needed Amazon vouchers, but so excited!

    Is it me or are the paid OnePulse surveys pretty thin on the ground recently? Maybe I miss them, but they seem to be a rare event these days.

    I feel like I am doing so rubbish at this!

    I went on a mystery shop, took a friend with me, had a nice meal, lost the receipt so can't get paid!

    I sold a lamp on Facebook, the woman never turned up.

    Sold a heater on Facebook, the woman is ignoring me !!!55358;!!!56611;

    I have so much stuff to sell- think I need to shut up and get on with it!

    Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

    tried to but they kept saying the app was not installed on my device and suggested remote access. Hence I removed it.

    On a separate note I thought I had made 8 via Top Cashback for a Lottoland purchase. (10 Cashback - 2 purchase) Unfortunately despite having used the link from the TopCashback website they decided to decline the transaction. I have put in a claim. However going back and reading the negative reviews it is not uncommon. Unfortunately Top Cashback puts favourable reviews there first.
