    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?!?!?!

    Had to buy a few things for the house on Amazon, I split it with my OH but I paid for my half with vouchers, so I saved 52.43.

    Happy new year everyone!

    Had a great festive period but now it's time to get back to a routine and start earning those vouchers!

    Will post another update on Monday, will do it every week so I keep a track of it all.

    I haven't been very focused on this and probably won't be for the next couple of weeks as I have exams coming up. I should have a 20 voucher coming through shortly though as I downloaded something on to my phone for 2 weeks in return for a voucher.

    Totals haven't changed much as I haven't done much over Christmas and New Year (we've been staying with family ) but currently:


    Populus: 13/50 (50)
    Branded Surveys: 350/1000 ($10) and 11ish on the way
    Answer points: 75/500 (5) and 5 on it's way
    Crowdology: 1.04
    Swagbucks: 412 (I cashed out 5 a week before Christmas but spent it on last year's presents!)

    On my amazon account: 7.4/400


    DH is probably going to be away for a few weeks this month, so I will do a load in the evenings to catch up a bit!

    Not liking that swagbucks has increased their 5 amazon giftcard cost! Looks like I am going to have to wait until I have enough for 10 in future as this now seems the best value.

    Have spent more today of my vouchers on my brothers birthday present, I will be back to update properly over the next few days but theres not much to report as I have just been too busy.

    Its quite slow on the survey front for me now anyway.

    Hoping it picks up soon, I have lots of plans for this free money!!

    Hello. Still plodding along with the surveys. Nearly able to cash out on 2 sites. I was declined for Pinecone research and swagbucks won't let me create an account grr. I have emailed them but probably won't here back. sigh.

    Quick question. How much is it to cash out Populuslive?

    Thanks

    Aw that's rubbish!

    Once you get to 50 points they send you a 50 cheque.

    Fab DebtFreeDuo.

    I'm having a slightly annoying issue with Opinion Outpost, done 2 surveys this morning all the way through to the final classification questions then it takes me to the no surveys available page!

    Sent them an email to let them know, can't be having that - time is precious money!

    I hope you managed to get it sorted with Opinion Outpost, Dolly Rocker!


    I said I'd be doing more this month, but I lied! I ended up baking 3 cakes for my daughter's birthday (which she managed to spread over 2 weeks), and made bunting and other decorations which took a lot longer than I thought!

    InboxPounds: 1.41
    On my amazon account: 23.50/400


    Aiming to get closer to 50 each month from now on, but we'll see!
