    #Make Upto 10 a Day March 2018 # 27th Feb 18 at 10:16 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 127th 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!!!

    #3 Swagbucks
    #3 Swagbucks

    This is a very popular site with moneymakers everywhere. The site is based in the US but there is a UK version. We get daily challenges which if you achieve gives you bonus swagbucks the next month.

    You can watch videos, play games, run apps that have videos, complete surveys and sign up for offers. You can even shop online and earn swagbucks I use it for argos. I reserve and collect, after clicking through swagbucks shop and then a month later, I get my swagbucks for shopping at argos.

    You can cash out for paypal uk or amazon vouchers uk, plus other vouchers, like M&S, New Look, etc. Make sure you select UK or if you are in US, leave as amazon.com.

    I usually cash out 5 but you can cash out at more. There are also 3 amazon vouchers available.

    If you follow swagbucks on twitter or facebook, they have competitions and bonus swagbuck codes.

    But there is a dedicated swagbuck thread so you don't miss out on codes, although they are usually only valid for an hour.

    anyone interested in making 125?

    switch bank to Halifax through their switching scheme and earn 125. You don't have to opt in for their premium account and you don't have to have direct debits going out each month. someone switched with 3p in their current account and 5 days later received the 125


    https://www.halifax.co.uk/

    if you have switched previously you won't earn the 125

    read all terms and conditions for yourself before signing up.

    I switched an old account I barely use for this purpose.

    New app - SnapMyEats

    those on instagc or swagbucks, look for SnapMyEats in offertoro, instagc on phone under apps/instagc/cross ios, and it should say Mobile - Snap My Eats UK

    install the app and upload your receipts for buying food on the go when out and about, ie bakeries, takeaway sandwiches/etc

    they pay once a month in amazon vouchers.

    You have to complete a short survey before uploading your receipt, nothing painful.

    They say the survey is about your food and beverage purchase. This includes snack or coffee on the go, fast food, restaurant meals, food /beverage purchases from a cafe or supermarket.

    People have been using this app for a month and successfully cashed out for amazon vouchers.

    So have a smartphone? IOS or android, give it a go. It's free money.

    SnapMyEats sounds interesting Aesop - I'll give that a go. Where do you find out about Apps like this out of interest?

    65.50 for me today. Had a busy day swimming - 4yr old with her last lesson of the term, and completing her Duckling 2 award. We had to go back a bit later for the presentation and to collect her certificate. Then this afternoon the 6-month old had his 2nd swimming lesson. Bless him - there is very little in this world cuter than a swimming pool full of little babies

    We're off swimming again in the morning too. The 4-yr old has been going to Bannantyne's, and doing the Becky Adlington Swim Stars, but to be honest, I haven't been overly impressed...and it's pricey too. So we're trying her with a different swim school that her cousins go to. She has a trial tomorrow so they can assess her current ability and see what class she needs to go in.

    So that's my swimming story for the weekend ha!

    Reached the daily goal on Swagbucks each day.
    Done more on InstaGC and got my first gift card.
    Also, yesterday I uploaded a few receipts to Receipt Hog.

    Can someone confirm how many Swagbucks/InstaGC points are equal to 1 please?

    I'm really glad I bit the bullet and listed several items on eBay and Amazon recently. Sold 2 eBay items this morning and one (quite an expensive book) on Amazon a few minutes ago. Must be this weather making people stay at home and buy online instead of venturing out. Will add total when I've posted the eBay items tomorrow. Amazon payment won't arrive for ages so will add later.


    I hope you're all able to get out and about today. Thaw really setting in here, OH has muffled himself up and gone for a short walk. Drizzle/light rain but he's so stir-crazy he's past caring whether he gets wet or not. He's just desperate for a change of scene and some fresh air.

    Cufc_mike sometime through twitter, facebook, Mse or just word of mouth.

    People search through the app store for money making apps and other about them.

    The eats one is advertised on swagbucks and instagc.

    People doing these surveys and offers find things that work and post about them.

    Oh and reddit is a good source if you can find the right threads.

    Instagc 1 point is worth $0.01

    The best way to see your points value is click here

    https://www.instagc.com/points/stats

    They helpfully convert into pounds and pence.



    Swagbucks is approximately

    10sb = ~7.1p Amazon, 6.5p paypal, thanks to Hannah.

    The value varies when they have a sale.
