    Just received 5 from light speed which I have transferred into my buy premium bonds pot

    Total so far in 2018

    30 in vouchers received
    25.80 in cash received

    3.19 in showing as pending from Quidco and I'm nearly at a 10 voucher on Swagbucks. 14 in Prolific but I'm waiting till 20 to cash out.

    I'm looking forward to buying my first lot of Premium Bonds with cash raised from nothing. Although currently I have 200 in there already.
