    ~Make upto £10 a day challenge January 2018~ 31st Dec 17 at 2:53 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 125th month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. A link here to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it, lynnejk and ALL posters, for helping us to keep the thread going. Thanks to previous challengers who used to run this thread too, Rawdinosaur, Emmaglet, Nat21luv, Monkeynut, Sweetpeas, Purpleroses, JesaRose, MizMir.

    I have decided to rename this challenge as reading posts, it seems to put people off thinking they HAVE TO make £10 a day.

    You don't.

    The original purpose of this challenge was to help people to try and make an extra £10 a day on top of their normal income to help things along. Ie paying off debt, making savings, paying for holidays, overpaying mortgages etc.

    That is exactly what this challenge is about, attempting to make extra income on top of your normal income to help you wherever you need it.

    People start the challenge by setting a goal of £1 a day. Then when they find they are smashing this regularly, they up it to £5 a day. Some of us gluttons for punishment go for £10 a day. It really is entirely upto you. We only ask you to post what your goal is to help you keep motivated. Some days you make more and some days you make less, but aim for extra at the end of the month.

    The idea is that everyone posts how they are making extra money and these shared ideas help all of us to learn new ways to help cut debt or earn/save money.

    What cannot be added:
    Wages from your main job

    What can be added:
    Overtime
    Income from a second job
    Daily clicks
    Interest
    Vouchers
    Mystery shopping
    And much, much more.

    This board moves pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

    Link to previous thread.

    So who wants to kick 2018 into a financially working for you year?

    Join this challenge and let's make those bank accounts fat, mortgages paid off, holidays paid off, savings account grow fatter, debts paid off and much much more!!!

    Wonders will never cease. OH came back from the tip, I made him a quick snack and now he's gone again with a second car load. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he can keep this up as there's so much else to go before we have room in the sheds and garage for the stuff we really have to keep.


    Well done everyone on all the money you've been making so far this month. I'm impressed


    Ooooh, just seen a PM from The Badger to say I've been awarded my 9 Year badge. Where does the time go, eh?.


    Things are definitely looking up today, even the sun is trying to shine

    Slow, Slow, Slow month so far - Been without internet for a couple of days, and DS had not gone back to school as no heating which didn't help! Roll on Monday...

    On the plus side we started clearing his room for decorating, so big dump run done this morning. 3 boxes of lego and dvds to go to the various sites-as long as I remember to take them (although need to re-weigh one as I think it may be too heavy so I'll have to split it!), so hopefully they will pay out this month! And a few bags of stuff for ebay...

    If I cash out from PA to Circle, is it still £20 to avoid fees or can I cash out less?
    Originally posted by juliejim
    Yep - still £20 unfortunately. Their FAQs say:

    "Our initial payment threshold is only £5 (with a fee). If you want to minimise fees, then wait until you have accumulated £20. By doing so you will avoid fees if you're in the UK/US by cashing out with circle. Below that amount, circle cash outs are charged 1% + 10p fee.

    PayPal cash outs are charged PayPal's 2.9% + 20p fee. "

    Evening all. Well I've been on my sick bed for the past few days. Dragged myself into work on Friday - really shouldn't have done as I was not well at all, but I don't get sick pay, and with my better half on maternity leave, a day off unpaid is the last thing we need. Think I'm finally getting over whatever it was I had - flu like symptoms but it really knocked the stuffing out of me.

    Can't remember the last time I posted (possibly Thursday), but since then I've made a combined £110.17 MB'ing and Citizen Me.

    Hello!

    Please may I join in? I was recommended over here by a super savvy turtle in the NST challenge thread.
    Part of that challenge is earning a little extra so here I am!

    Just signed up to pinecone and will look through the other suggestions later.

    I'll try for £10 per month to start to see how I fare.

    I've not done cashback sites before, do they give cashback on everyday stuff like groceries? And is it all online sales or receipt scanning?

    Thank you!
