    2018 in 2018
    Not sure if I manage to save 2018 as I work full time and due to that my time is tight
    ...but so far got 50 for leaving HSBC and I am hoping to get 125 in M&S vouchers soon as I switched to them and after a year I will get another 60. I also get free cinema tickets from Lloyds (6 per year) and 3 from Halifax monthly. That all combined gives me 271 money saved(earned) pretty much effortlessly :-) I also try to use ASDA Price Guarantee -moneysavinggirl.co.uk/asda-price-guarantee-explained - whenever I shop at ASDA :-) but I must say they have pretty good prices and some of my shopping trips don't generate voucher codes...

    125 premium bonds
    30 from income bond
    20 competition win - 2 microfiber beach towels
    23 auction after costs
    10 credit card points
    To be fair to myself I am also deducting 20 this week because I booked train tickets for the wrong day by mistake and it cost 20 admin fee to change them. No point in adding up extra earnings if I go and throw them away again by being daft.

    Now on 1,000 exactly

    A note of caution on eMastercards. I was doing an email clean out last week and found 15.00 of earned vouchers from last year. Lucky because they were out of date at the end of May. Keep a tab on those vouchers people.
