    Make up to £10 a day in September 2018 - Everyone welcome 30th Aug 18 at 1:06 PM
    Hello and welcome everybody

    This is the 133rd month of this challenge, which was first started by Batgirl, in September 2007. Here is a link to the original thread as I am sure some of you are interested to read where it all began.

    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=542835

    Thanks to Batgirl for starting it and for everyone who has kept it going for 11 years! I would especially like to thank Aesop who has run the thread for the last few years

    Quite a few of the regulars have taken a break recently so we would be really pleased to see some new faces and of course we would love to hear from any of our old posters even if it is just to say hello

    It is only natural for the thread to evolve and change in a different direction and for new ideas to be explored.

    The same with the challengers in this thread. Some become debt free, mortgage free, life takes a new path, new challenges, etc.

    It is definitely worth joining, reading and joining in. It has helped so many people over the years and it has been amazing.

    People will be missed and are alway missed when they stop posting. You are forever in our hearts and on this challenge.

    I am posting the new thread again this month and Kantankrus Mare will be posting the list of challengers. I will be back at work next week so may not have as much time in September. We hope to make the running of the thread a collaborative effort so it doesnít become too much work for anyone so please help out if you can.

    This challenge was recently renamed as people seemed to be put 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 can move pretty quickly, so be sure to subscribe and read it regularly.

    So who wants to join us?

    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!!!

    Do you just search as normal or do you have to be logged into qmee site?

    I think the following searches got me a few pence recently:

    Contact lenses

    Deuter rucksack

    Topshop miniskirt

    Iím trying to think what else!

    Surveys are ok on there I think.

    I've made £2.86 doing surveys on Qmee in the last 4 days so it is worth looking at them. I'm yet to do anything with the search funtion though.

    Some more ebay/facebook sales which puts me at £110/300.

    I tried jobspotter for the first time today. I found lots of ads, but only got 5 points for most of them so I don't think it will be a quick earner!

    It's a shame you haven't found any valuable job adverts, have you read the guide on what gives you the mostpoints? I've earned over £80 in less than a month, but I do live in a small town and visit other places regularly. I seem to average around 40-70 points for each spot and 100 points is worth 69p, so even just a few spots should add up.

    £5.55 from Prolific in today, so I'm at £31.76/200. I need to ramp up in the second half of September!

    I was also quite naughty this week and overspent on my weekly budget, so this doesn't feel like much to celebrate

I live in a place with quite a young population so I wonder if they were already submitted by other people and that might make a difference. I am visiting a quieter town with an older population next week so I am interested to see if that makes a difference.

    We've got really busy again though so that'll feed back in soon and we just need to find the most efficient way to deal with the overdraft...

    At least you are back to getting some funds coming back in. Dont be discouraged! Blips happen but being aware and keeping an eye on the budget will eventually bring you back to a good place again.

    I have £10 swagbucks to declare and an £8 saving for marks and spencer with some coupons my mam gave me.

    Treat ourselves to the £10 meal deal which is Indian this week. Saves us paying out £20 tonight for a takeaway.

    I tend to cash out in amazon vouchers and buy household non perishables to try to make the weekly shopping money go a bit further. I refuse to pay for delivery but got rather frustrated yesterday as no matter what I put in my basket, (over £20 and stuff supposedly supplied by Amazon) I was getting a delivery charge. Will have a look again tomorrow.

    Have a good weekend everyone.

    I did a post this morning but it disappeared. I hate it when that happens.

    Just wanted to pick your brains about the free Lego cards offer at Sainsbury's as I know you shop there. They are supposed to be available in store or online, one free pack for every £10 spent.


    I did an online order last week when the promotion had already started and spent over £40 but didn't receive any Lego cards. I can't see any opt-in button on the website or in the email they sent me so I assumed they'd just be issued automatically.


    I've emailed Sainsbury's to ask about how to get them as I plan to do another online order on Monday and don't want to miss out again. I emailed them yesterday but apart from the automated 'thank you for your email....' message I've not heard anything from them. I know from experience that they sometimes take days to respond. I don't really want to phone their Helpline.

    Thanks xxx

    £4 payable on Topcashback for me today bringing my total to £56.28/100.


    I've also been at work today. I don't work many Saturday's and when I do I get a weekday off instead but I also get around £20 for a Saturday premium payment after deductions. I did the same last week but never thought to add it here, so £20 extra last Saturday and today plus the £56.28 brings the total so far to £96.28. Its amazing how it all adds up

    I'm thinking you may be right. Went to York today and snapped around 80 jobs. I'd say a good half to two thirds of them got me 10 points or less and they were similar to ones I'd usually get 30-60 for. I managed to find a few whoppers though, two at 205 points and one at 194! No idea what was so amazing about them, but I'm not complaining! Managed to make over £10 though without much effort above what I was doing anyway.

    Another 5 days and another £94.92, giving me a total of £211.26 on the month. I wish I'd started doing this months ago! I'm looking at another possible £40 tomorrow from micro-jobs so I expect to meet my target at this rate.

    I’ve earned £18 from eBay sales paid for today - hoodie, a pair of jeans and an old (obsolete) mobile phone.

    I got a £4.95 payout from TopCashback.

    Looks like I’ll be at more than £400 this month when it ends, wasn’t expecting that!

    Tips to add for yesterday £7.40

    £12 MOC used in Sainsburys today where the adverts for the lego cards were hitting me in the face and made me think of you CBC

    Hope you manage to get them sorted. I guess the home delivery person just never thought to give you them. Bit poor but they should still honour them.

    Bit of a waste getting the indian meal from M&S. It was horrible! We dont tend to eat ready meals and maybe as we have been having such lovely concoctions with our monthly delivery from Gousto, it has spoiled us. The meal tasted plastic and had that manufactured taste that a lot of ready meals seem to have. Yuck.....has put me off totally. Not a bad thing as I do wonder what is put in these meals sometimes. Cant be good for us. Anyway, Im rambling. Hope everyone has had a good weekend

    Hi I was wondering if I could rejoin again, I know I haven't posted in a long while but the truth of it is that I lost the motivation to try to make extra money (sounds silly I know), I guess it was because I did not know what I wanted to do with my life in general.

    After a long thought about everything I now have a plan on what I want to achieve over the long term and the short term. My main aim is to own my own house I am saving a decent amount of my salary each month for this so anything extra is a bonus. My target would be £340 per month this would cover my bills such as my car loan and a couple of other bits and bobs. This would also allow me to save a small amount from that each month to go towards the house as well. I always loved the support we gave each other on this forum and that is also one of the other reasons I have returned.

    For today I made £7.05 from matched betting and my current total for the month is £187.55
    Make £10 A Day In September £263/£142.64 (54.23%)
    CC1 £3500/£587.06 CC2 £1100/£0.00 LOAN £7500/£6309.64
    Total Debt £12100/£6896.70
    (43% Paid)
Welcome to our new Forum!

Our aim is to save you money quickly and easily. We hope you like it!
