    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?!?!?!

    Did you sort your problem out Dolly?

    Quick update, really haven't done much as I am just so busy but here goes:

    Swagbucks - 223 (1360 for 10) Will aim to start this again from tomorrow to try and get a good monthly bonus in March
    Prolific - 1.25 (20 to cashout) Just cashed out 20.41 which will go to SPC
    Yougov - 2425 (5000 for 50)
    Ipsos - 600 (600 for 5) Ready to cashout but they are temporarily out of stock
    Research opinions - 4.64 (8 for cashout)
    TCB - 150.29 (Cashout in a couple of months)

    Banked

    123.78 Amazon
    40.99 SPC

    Spent

    74.92

    My balance has gone down more than I would like but it has saved me having to find 75 elsewhere. Will try to build my balance back up again as I plan on covering the whole of smalls birthday with this along with other birthdays that will come up.

    Hello #19 here.

    Been so busy getting in the overtime that I haven't done as many as I would have liked. But all sites I have joined are ticking along. However I do have another 2.50 to cash out so that's 5 so far

    Bring on February, I will aim to beat that lol.

    I would like to join please. I've recently started my debt free journey & jumped back on the surveys bandwagon. Funnily enough I posted on my own diary yesterday that I am going to try & get all of my family birthdays done with vouchers this year (not including my OH & 2 daughters). I did have 10 Amazon voucher redeemed from Swagbucks but used that for a recent gift purchase so have 5 left & no other vouchers. The first family birthday coming up will be at the end of February so I have around 3 weeks to earn as much as possible, to give me enough time to redeem & shop.

    Thought I would spend some time on surveys today until I spent 20 minutes on a survey only to be kicked off! This is what really puts me off, I don't get much time at the moment so the last thing I want to do is waste any of it. Anyway, quick update now that I have given up:

    Swagbucks - 348 (1360 for 10)
    Prolific - 2.25 (20 to cashout)
    Yougov - 2450 (5000 for 50)
    Ipsos - 625 (600 for 5) Still out of stock
    Research opinions - 4.64 (8 for cashout)
    TCB - 150.29 (Cashout in a couple of months)

    Banked

    Thank you Dolly Rocker

    I redeemed a 10 voucher from Swagbucks yesterday, which takes my Amazon total to 15.50. I am going to spend some time this evening on surveys to start getting the points stacking up.

    InboxPounds: 4.16
    On my amazon account: 23.50/400


    I feel like I'm not getting anywhere, but according to my spreadsheet (I have too much time on my hands!) I am 19% towards my aim, and only 10% of the way through the time I've allotted. Might not get much done next week as we're staying with my dad for half term and I'll be doing some work for him.


    Hope everyone has a good weekend!
