    Speaking of Circle, anyone had some strange transactions tonight? I've had 4 "You've just received 5.00 from Circle" emails in the last half hour... All say the money's from Circle but it's because someone tried it?! (apologies for slight off topic)

    So if you cash out once a month, losing 80p - over the course of the year you will lose 9.60. That is around 38 packets of noodles!

    To be honest, I get all my survey sites (Swagbucks, Prolific, Qmee) paid to PayPal so I know how much I've earned and can transfer to my bank account all together at the end of each month. Could get a few more quid using vouchers/different payment methods but for example, in June I transferred nearly 100 which was pretty damn useful

    Yoohoo, I'm back

    After a crap year involving back surgery I finally got round to getting my account off On Hold and checking for studies again. Pleasant surprise that I've had about 12 over the last couple of days. I wonder if your naiveness gets reset after a certain amount of time....

    Hello and welcome back! Sounds like Prolific gave you a good welcome back too!


    (Back surgery? Eek! Hope you've recovered fully now x)

    I may have in the past - I can't remember. They all had different Italian sounding names on them too (as in the names of the person who tried it and that's why they're sending me 5), and it would be really odd if it was from a referral link - now had 22 emails, with more coming in this morning! I hope Circle reply to me soon!

    Ok, so I got a generic reply from Circle about referral bonuses - they obviously didn't read my email properly or look at the screenshot I sent. Question is, do I now try to cash out the money that's there, or try to fight to get them to listen to me?! What if I cash out and they want it back?!


    Prolific still seems to be having problems this morning too.

    Well, it ain't your fault people are giving you money although, if they are all Italian-sounding names, I might be a little concerned about money laundering, AL... Do you have any starts with "m", rhymes with raffia connections, perchance?
    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    Haha, not that I know of, Smodlet - maybe I should be worried! No horse head in my bed yet...


    I'm tempted MLE. Maybe I'll try cashing out but not spend the money yet, in case they contact me about it. It's not like I didn't try to sort it out!

    Go for it! It's karma. You are a nice person and need money right now. 22 x 5, that's gotta be a lotta noodles, yo. Probably enough to stretch from Penzance to Aberdeen... I wonder if we could get mikep chomp his way along the noodle trail.
