    Pay for birthdays and Christmas 2018 with surveys

    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?!?!?!

    Trying to keep myself motivated. Update:

    Swagbucks -
    78 - redeemed another 5
    Prolific - 27.43 - requested withdrawel of 20.58 to put towards SPC so won't count it below.
    Yougov - 1900 need 5000 for 50
    Ipsos - 2850 need 3000 for 25

    Banked
    10.80 (5 of which is on the way)

    Will hopefully receive the vouchers from the big research I just participated in very shortly. A part of me worries that I won't get anything as it still feels too good to be true.

    Someone must have read my mind as I received an email right after posting to say that the reward will be with me within 10 days after the researcher has confirmed that all parts have been completed. 100 will cover birthdays for the next 3 months for me and will get me off to a fantastic start.

    Afternoon,

    Got my first 10 towards my 20 Argos target courtesy of Valued Opinions. Hopefully I'll hit my target before Christmas.

    I started counting mine from the day the thread started but everyone is starting at different times, some haven't finished this Christmas yet so are still using vouchers for that.

    Quick check in

    Swagbucks - 275 Need 620 for 5
    Prolific - 8.90 Need 20 to cashout
    Yougov - 2125 need 5000 for 50
    Ipsos - 2875 need 3000 for 25
    Research opinions - I don't generally use this one but I'm waiting on the 100 from the big research I recently did.

    Banked
    10.80 Amazon
    20.58 SPC

    Target
    650

    Today I worked out that to cover all birthdays and Christmas in 2018 I need 650. This will be the minimum amount required which I want to achieve just with amazon vouchers so it means approximately 12.50 in vouchers per week. Going to try my best but I don't think I will be able to cover the whole amount.

    I'm counting some sites already, but because Swagbucks is fairly quick to pay out I'll use anything I get in the next week for this Christmas (still have a few stocking fillers to buy!). After that I will be counting everything towards next Christmas.


    I am aiming for about 400, it wont cover all of the Christmas presents (we have a huge family), but it will definitely help!


    Currently:
    Populus: 13/50 (50)
    Branded Surveys: 695/1000 (10)
    Answer points: 75/500 (5) and 5 on it's way
    Crowdology: 1.04


    I'm really liking Branded Surveys (previously MintVine I think), lots available and you still get 6 points if you get screened out.

    Reached my 20 Argos target and have ordered my niece's present.

    I'm going for 30 in Amazon vouchers next which I'll use to buy Christmas presents for next year.
