What you have to do: Make the required number of searches (unverified) and earn a place in a lottery syndicate with a lottery line in the National Lottery or Euromillions. Winnings are shared out between the 20 or so syndicate members, hence only pennies so far. I don’t spend a lot of time on this one, but it’s nice to do enough searches to get a ticket, in it to win it and all that for free!
Earned so far this year: £3.51
Payment: Good old fashioned cheque
What you have to do: Answer surveys, acknowledge emails, watch videos, do verified internet searches.
Earned so far this year: £7.65
Payment: Cash direct to bank account or via PayPal
What you have to do: On the one hand, this site is similar to TopCashback and I’ve heard of people using both, comparing which site pays the most cashback. On the other hand, it also runs its own surveys (Quidco Opinions), and the cash I’ve earned is from doing such surveys.
Earned so far this year: £5.00
Payment: Gift cards, eg Amazon, Paypal, iTunes etc
What you have to do: Search, answer surveys, watch online videos and play online games to earn ‘swagbucks’. These are then redeemed for vouchers when they reach the required amount, eg the £5 Amazon giftcard I earned was redeemed for 825 swagbucks.
Being active on all these sites (especially the survey ones) can be quite time consuming, I tend to just hit a couple of them as and when, though I guess to maximise my earnings, I should try to hit them all.
Even if it’s just earning a few quid, it’s a few quid going in your pocket and it all adds up – I’m intending to invest these quids this year!
