    ~Make upto £10 a day May 2018~ 1st May 18 at 12:20 AM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 129th 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[/URL] 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!!!

    I always forget to check mse and post my referrals. I do use social media to post my referrals but you should always add them to MSE too.

    I know you may only get 1, but 1 is one more than 0. Also if you are on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, don't forget to post your referrals there too. You will be surprised who signs up.

    I know a few ladies who post their referrals in Facebook selling groups and they get quite a few people signing up and making them money!

    #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. Make sure you select UK or if you are in US, leave as amazon.com.

    I usually cash out at

    £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.

    You can redeem for other vouchers, I know they introduced M and S, but amazon and paypal tend to be the favourites.

    #4 Prolific Academic

    One of my favourite survey sites, although I don't do enough of the surveys at the moment.

    If you want to sign up, please use a referral from this board and don't forget to leave your own.

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5267356&highlight=prolific+academ ic

    What is Prolific Academic?

    It is a site created to help University academics complete their thesis/degrees etc by finding them people willing to complete their questionnaires for payment.


    Most questionnaires are short and pay well. Some of the questionnaires are interesting and definitely give you food for thought. Some are just plain weird! But hey if you are getting paid for it....

    On Prolific, you get paid via PayPal or Circle.

    After you complete your first study, you will need to wait until your submission is approved by the researcher (usually within 1-3 days, sometimes longer). This short waiting period is important to ensure quality control.

    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.

    To get paid, simply click on the "Get Paid"-button in your participant account. It usually takes less than 48 hours for your payment to be processed, but in times of high throughput it can take up to 5 days.

    If your PayPal/Circle email address is different from the one you signed up with on Prolific, it will be no problem to enter the correct PayPal/Circle email in your participant account.


    You don't always get notified of new surveys, they sometimes email you, but if you are near a pc/smartphone with free time, worth checking throughout the day.

    Some more information on it.

    #5 Shop and Scan with Kantar
    #5 Shop and Scan with Kantar (not Nielsen, they are a different company)

    If you are interested in earning vouchers, just for scanning your food shopping,this is the company for you.

    Sign up here and wait for them to contact you.

    https://www.volunteer4panels.com/

    Please note, you will need a PC or laptop to work with these as you need to submit barcodes scanned and this can only be done via these methods, not tablets or iPads.

    Kantar Worldpanel is a leading company in the UK running consumer panels. We operate a number of different panels looking at purchasing and usage of many things from Groceries to Fashion.

    As a panel member you'll receive regular rewards - usually in the form of points which can be exchanged for high street gift vouchers. You'll also have access to competitions and prize draws as well as other member benefits.

    The information provided by our panels is used by manufacturers and retailers to understand how popular, or not, the products they make and sell are. So your help really makes a difference.

    What you do is scan your food shopping using a handheld barcode scanner. Then upload that information once or more a week to the website. You can also upload receipts to them.

    You earn 1100 points weekly for uploading barcodes. It doesn't matter how many you upload, the payment is the same.

    When you reach 10000 points you can cash out for a £10 reward voucher.

    There are no referrals for this scheme.

    Sounds like you are going to be very busy Aesop. Hope you earn lots of extra to help pay school trip fees.

    You amaze me with all your apps......I cant keep up with the ones I've got!!

    Got an invite from the shopandscan team inviting me to a new thing they are doing.

    I think it monitors your telly viewing habits and computer use but something has to be installed and I'm a bit wary of it interfering with wifi etc. Also OH wont let me do it.

    Shame as the points on offer were really good.

    Sorry, no time to read and reply to anyone's recent posts, will do it later.

    Just got in from car boot sale. Was there setting up at 5.15 and I stayed as long as I could stand the sun and heat. There was absolutely no shade and I'd had enough by 12.30, even though lots of new buyers were parking up and starting to wander round. I've planned to do it all again tomorrow (on a new-to-me site) so I need to replenish the tat in my car this afternoon. Plus have a shower and a much-needed cup of tea.


    Had a great day profit-wise, considering the absolute rubbish I was selling. Made £189.30 after fees. Very happy with that. My big shed is looking clearer every time I go in there now. At least I can get right inside to the back without having to drag lots of boxes out first


    I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine

    well done Shariann. £16 more than you had before you went out and got the all important vit d.

    is anyone having issues with onepulse? I am.

    also slice the pie were offering bonuses on certain reviewing. I am stuck on the music one which is an audio piece about something. no matter what I write it will not allow me to submit.

    I managed to cash out yesterday because of the bonus bits.

    and two days in a row, doblotto... both my months but not year or date.... so close... so close.....

    So weekends are always slow for apps. i have been working on slice the pie and am up to $6.50 . They have finished the bonus rounds and my stars dropped from 4 to 3. also found my money dropped for $0.07 to $0.06 per review. Going to call it a night as think my reviews are getting samey samey even though i try to differ them all. Time to sleep and will try to do more tomorrow to cash out again.

    How are you all doing? am also hoping to offload some books to one of the sites with extra codes this weekend.

    oh and cashed out £5 paypal on swagbucks.

    I haven't managed to find more than 2 of the collector bills even though kept searching.

    Well done, shariann. At least you made the effort and had a nice morning too. Think of it as money you wouldn't have had if you hadn't bothered to find a sale with spaces available.

    I hate it when I get there late and get pushed into a pitch right on the furthest bumpiest part of the field. I can see the buyers milling round stalls nearer the carpark but giving up before they venture into my inhospitable corner. I've made under £20 many a time


    Today's sale wasn't too successful, there are lots of other events and attractions elsewhere for people to visit rather than a car boot sale. It was one of those where the landowner is standing at the gate jangling his padlock keys dead on 11 o'clock whilst there are still lots of buyers about. Talk about making people feel unwelcome. I was all packed up and home by 12.20, but I'd been there since 6 so I suppose I had a good innings.


    Only made £55.30 after fees this time but every little helps and I'm glad to escape from the heat and come home to a cool room. Too hot for me out there. Am going to see if I can find some energy from somewhere to try to get some books accepted on the 3 websites that have a bonus until tonight.


    I hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun day

    Car boot sales scare me. I have no idea really how to get the best out of them and rarely come away with any more than I went in with. Despite the fact that I love doing them, and would love to come away with a bit of a profit for all of my tat!


    I worry these days that I have sold all the good stuff and am left with all the things that folk don't want! I'm braving another one in 2 weeks time.


    Any car booting tips? There's probably a thread somewhere...**toddles off to find it**


    No additions to my amounts so far. Getting some stuff on ebay next weekend, been researching and reckon I will come away with around £100 profit. Yay!
