The Big Money Challenge!
As we're saving for the wedding (eee!), I thought I would try a little blogger challenge, and see how much I could make/save just using the internet, inspired by the lovely Emma at From Aldi to Harrods. Here are a few things I've decided to try, that seem pretty good! I'll keep you updated on how we manage to do! The Selfie Lottery
This seemed a little too good to be true, but after researching it, it's all legit - Yay! Basically, you upload a selfie and this puts you into a daily draw to win at least £10. If the winner doesn't claim their prize, it rolls over to the next day. You also get 50p for checking every day, which is pretty cool. If someone you refer wins, you get the same amount as them too. If you follow this link, you'll be referred by me & I'll love you forever, and then you can spread your referral link and hopefully we'll all be rich someday!
I've often been stung by survey sites, that promise you'll be earning before you know it, only to never actually be approved for anything... ever! I found Prolific and gave it a little research and so far, I'm impressed. Instead of surveys, it's studies, to help researchers out. It also only shows you ones you're eligible for, rather than making you answer 10 questions before telling you they no longer need you!
I did two yesterday in less than ten minutes during my lunch break and made £1.20. It doesn't sound like a lot but hypothetically, if I made that every week between now and the wedding (eee!), I would end up with around £120. Not bad for ten minutes work a week! You can cash out at £5 so you don't need to make hundreds before you get access to it. Again, I have a referral link, which if you go though, helps me out a lot and doesn't make any difference to you.
Update: As of November 1st, I have earned around £25!
We don't shop a whole lot online, but when we do, we try to go through Top Cashback. so far we've earned about £20, which I'm pretty happy about since we do often forget to use it! It takes you to the exact same site, and you can shop with companies like Asda, EE, Amazon, as well as travel companies and insurance for bigger amounts back. They will also show you any offers going on, such as 25% off Sky TV Subscriptions, etc.
If you're someone who buys a lot online, even if it's just a monthly food shop, this is a great way to get some money back. You can cash out at any time, with no minimum and totally free! The money can come via PayPal, or if you choose vouchers (Amazon, High Street) or Tesco Club Card Points, Top Cashback will add a little extra to it!
This is another one, where I'm planning on just keeping it ticking over, and withdrawing just before the wedding to help a little.
Another affiliate link of course! I don't earn anything until you've reached £10.00 in cash back, and at the moment I have £180 worth of referrals just waiting until they've hit their target.
I have to make very clear that although I am giving you affiliate links, I would only do so if it was something I believed was legit and was genuinely happy with. I wouldn't just do it for the money. It just happens that these three ways of making money give you an affiliate option that I would be silly to ignore! If you have any questions about how they work, drop me a comment - I've researched them extensively so hopefully I can help!
How about you? Do you have any ideas for (legal!) ways to make money online?
