    Pay for birthdays and Christmas 2018 with surveys 27th Nov 17 at 4:51 PM
    Hey,

    So I know a lot of us do surveys to supplement our spending and this is something that I plan to keep up even when I a debt free.

    I have decided that 2018 is the time to keep a better track of what I spend my survey earnings on and I have decided to use what I earn to pay for birthday and Christmas 2018.

    Who wants to join me in this epic (I think it is) challenge?!?!?!

    Thank you for this tip, I've just made use of that, great idea!



    I've just redeemed a virtual card and straight away topped up the full balance to my amazon account, it hasn't deducted anything, so maybe it's changed recently?

If it comes back at any point to say that it didn't process for any reason then this will be the reason why. I'm glad I could help you stretch your points further, always good to get as much as you possibly can from the points as they can be such hard work to get!

    I've fairly recently started Inbox pounds. Not yet got to the 20 required to cash out. Anyone had any experience of them. Seems slow and steady earnings.

    I applied for some research a week or so back through research opinions (anyone done something successful with them?), heard back that I have been successful, I usually have no luck with this one, the research is just an online community, taking part for 5 days and the reward is 100 in amazon vouchers! It feels too good to be true, 100!

    Evening,

    Can I please join in? I used surveys to pay for things this year and it definitely helped!

    I use a few different sites but am only going to focus on one specific goal at a time. 1st goal is to get 20 worth of Argos vouchers to buy my niece a lava lamp for her birthday in February. Will do this through valued opinions and swagbucks.

    Sure you can, welcome to the thread.

    Good goal, I am going to try and break it down throughout the year but will just get 2017 out the way then start the plan.

    Hey & welcome.

    Oh I tried swagbucks then gave it up quite quickly, I just didn't get it at all.
