Weekends are a time for redemptions. Toluna £35 PayPal, redeemed today was helped by 2 very well paying studies that didn't take much time at all. Surveys on here can be a bit rubbish, but the 5-minute ones and the big studies are well worth doing https://uk.toluna.com/referral/Jonathan.evans

YouGov - Review - got to £50 how we got there - Sign up
YouGov - has always been a big favourite of mine, you can earn through surveys their daily polls and now YouGov safe which is a chrome extension that you can earn points on by sharing your streaming data.

Right now you can earn a decent amount of money-sharing.

Chrome history data
Netflix
Amazon
Apple tv+
Youtube (worked finally) (can be a free account)
Disney plus
Spotify (can be a free account)

Their surveys are quite few and far between as you will see, but they are good value when you do get them.

Their referral bonus is cracking as well, if someone signs up with your link and completes 6 surveys you get 200 points or £2

The points can be redeemed via bacs, straight to your bank account and payment normally less than a week, never had any problems with them

Actually quite enjoy their surveys quite topical and interesting (I mean it helps I get paid for them)

So here is my breakdown for the money

Yougov Safe: £30.50
Referrals:£14.00
Surveys £5.50

YouGov safe has made me so much in a short period of time, the amount is slowing a bit now with the amount dropped fro 100 points to 50 but I would imagine that when you first sign up you get the same high points I did, also the frequency drops a bit for some as well. But who knows they have added quite a lot recently there may be more.

Obviously your sharing your streaming data, but YouGov, not sure I could think of a more trustworthy organisation but it is your call so do think about it thee FAQ's are here https://safe.yougov.com/extension/welcome

Top cashback Hummingbird game

Coast - Prize draw entry again
BONUS IWOOT - got a jelly bean 3 more for £20 don't think we going to get that or much else
Ladbrokes - 1- 2 - FREE game

This is a great little free game on Ladbrokes, as you can see you bet just 3 results, for one correct score you get £1 free bet, for 2 a £5 free bet and if you are some kind of football oracle you get £100 CASH

Ladbrokes is always good because they have a lot of free bet giveaways pop in your account if I'd have been paying attention this week.

MODE:

Every Friday I earn some interest directly into my mode bitcoin wallet by keeping it in the "bitcoin jar" today its was 0.48 pence.

Each year you get 5% on your bitcoin if you keep it in the jar

and if you sign up as a new user for the mode app and keep your bitcoin there (minimum 0.01 bitcoin) can transfer from another wallet, and you can get and additional £10 worth of bitcoin in your wallet within 24 hours.

If you want some quick cash just withdraw it after fees you will still be well up on your money.

LEGO
So couple of stonking lego deals today, fantastic offers first

TESCO 50% off two sets that should be looking as an investment or a gift, you buy these now you sell later in the year, I believe you'll double your money.

1) 41422 50% of with a club card as sold for £40 at amazon in the past

2) 60305 - lego city product not as popular as the above but at half price, definitely likely to make some money, quite a new product so may be a longer hold

 

Then on "I want one of those" there is another cracking offer, not as big a discount but currently 20% off and a very sought after product

20% off with code "lego20" and then also if you click through topcashback - you can get an extra

Well hopefully that makes up for my slack effort yesterday

Ready to chill for the rest of the weekend psyche myself up for a run tomorrow, and journey to Tescos

LEGO!!!!!!

So in the absence of any other money-making ideas, I thought I would do some lego research trying to source some products

This is something just getting into, dipping my toe in, so what the hell am I doing with lego.

So after following some people on Twitter and doing my research it is clear that lego can be a fantastic investment, with retired products shooting to 100% to 200% return on investment. So by buying lego products when they are cheap or on offer as they often are and then holding for an extended period of time, you can earn a decent return on your investment much more than you would in stocks or shares

So a couple of products I looked at today are

This one I bought yesterday for £20, already it is at 31.99 and long term will comfortably I think go to £40 and beyond, may have to hold for some time this one but we shall see.

The ethos behind all of this is that all lego products retire and once they do the more and more they become sought after.

13/03/21

Day 13 another Saturday, not the best for surveys as we know and not much else going on but we were saved by consumer pulse, which I spoke a bit about before and yesterday redeemed £100 of my two accounts (sssh), £50 for each, originally I signed up through invites from my panel base account.

Total earnt today £14.85 24 minutes 40 seconds

Consumer pulse

Essentially what you do is each week, you tell them the purchases that you have made from 4 different categories:

  • clothing
  • entertainment
  • health and beauty
  • professional beauty treatments

Tell them wherefrom how much who for etc, and get points (normally 500 points per item), it is normally maxed out at 5,000 - 6,000 points a week, which equates to £5 - £6, as well as there being very sporadic surveys available as well.

Fantastic opportunity to earn some really good, money, don't need to have proof of purchases of anything if you know what I mean (nudge, nudge, wink wink!)

You can redeem for a variety of different vouchers starting at just £10

Consumer pulse today I earnt 12.50 for 15 minutes from two accounts

Yougov: £1.60

Earnt 60 p from a quick 4-minute survey and another 100 points (£1) from sharing my Netflix data with YouGov safe

Self-assessment begins:

I have come to the realisation this week, that I have earnt too much money, haha, so I'm thinking just like al Capone the taxman is coming for me, well not really I have earnt a minimal amount, mainly through the offers I have submitted here surveys and the like, but for 2020 - 21 I have earnt more than ever, over and above the £1,000 trading allowance so it is time to think about paying the taxes.

Having gone through this minefield before, It is not one looking forward to but for the earnings from 2020-21 the deadline will be

The deadline for filing a 2020-21 Self Assessment tax return will be midnight on 31 January 2022, so we shall think about that later

Yougov safe

Yougov safe is a new chrome extension, that pays you for sharing your data from streaming services you can earn from the following accounts:

  • Netflix - will need a paying account
  • Chrome
  • Spotify - can use a free account
  • amazon prime - will need a paying account
  • apple tv+ will need a paying account (i don't)
  • youtube (can never get this one to work)
  • Disney plus - will need a paying account

So far I have earned £27.50 from this little extension when you first sign up the bonuses are quite high, they do get less, this week got £1.50 from amazon, Disney and Spotify - some every 7 days some 30.

But this really is an easy way to make some extra money, and on top of the surveys makes YouGov even more desirable

Clubhouse is a nifty little website, where you can tell them about the sports that you watch, and get rewarded with a point a week, redemption automatically every few months with every 5 points being worth £5

 

Market Research:

Market research through harris interactive - pretty sure I picked this one up from toluna, did an hour video call on zoom got £15, it is rare I do these but as have a day off, I can actually do them, so many studies are within the normal 9-5, it was really easy to set up quick zoom call, looking at a new website, fantastic stuff.

£15.00 - 1 hour happy days, had no idea about the subject so was bit of a blag but was ok

Humming bird game

Day 11: clue monsoon.... more disappoint me just a prize draw entry

 

Earn money for your money:

Also topped up my LISA (lifetime isa) today another £700, which hopefully I will be using to buy a house in the next 3 -4 years, the journey is still early for us very much so, but I think we can do it. The LISA I think is a must if your going to buy a first home.

Can save up to 4,000 a year in there and the lovely people at the government will top it up with 25% - so the £700 I put in is actually a very nice £875.

I have very much come to terms that doing something with your money is the only way for it to grow, so you may see more of my thoughts on that in the coming weeks.

Step 1 was getting out of the debt which we are nearly on top of, now to make this money grow and turn life around from financial errors and frivolity, into security for my family. It is not going to be easy, but I am up to the challenge I think, time to break away from the rat race. My dream is to retire at 50 that is just 18 years away now, doable? I dont know? but I am going to give it a shot.

Profit from cashback:

So after a poor earnings day today, went to look for some good ways of making some cash, cashback is always good there are opportunites for free cashback, and then there are also offers for profitable cashback.

There is always an element of risk as some times the offer wont click through or you will breach the terms and conditions. But being prepared and organised can often make profit if your happy to make.

So on the very quick look today I saw an offer on Oh my dosh, sign up to foxy bingo deposit and spend £5 and get £12.50 cashback, that is a return of 150% £7.50 profit, and a chance to get some more .

So thought id track my progress and see if it is worth it.

So I have signed up and deposited £5 time to play

The good news is as well, if we do ge the cashback which I am confident with, then there is also the chance (although a slim one that we can get money out of the bingo site as well) ..... to be continued
