A little extra cash and some fun on the way

If you read my ramblings often you will know I am being made redundant in May, you will also know that I would very much like to be a Stay at Home Mum once I finish work. With this in mind I am always on the look out for extra ways to earn some pennys.

Did you know that you can make extra money simply for giving your opinions, playing games, watching videos or even just shopping? Most sites pay out in Paypal or gift vouchers, a few will pay in actual cash via BACS and you can devote as much or as little time to them as you want to.

A couple of my Favourite sites are:

By completing surveys, watching videos, playing games, doing ordinary searches and answering a daily poll you can redeem for Amazon vouchers. With quite little effort you can redeem once a month easily.

Topcashback This site pays you in cash via BACS. All you need do is go through this website when online shopping with hundreds of stores and you receive a percentage of your total back in cashback. It takes a couple of weeks to track and become payable but in the last year I have had £200 back on products I was buying anyway!

Superpoints Not a quick earner but for spinning a lucky wheel each day you can win points to be redeemed for vouchers.

Toluna Another thats not a quick earner but some interesting surveys means you can redeem for gift vouchers.

Yougov Yougov has a minimum cash out value of £50 which is a lot BUT there are some really, really interesting surveys on there. It is the actual site used for government research and you often see it quoted on the News and documentarys.

Is a really useful site as it puts a list of available surveys in one convenient location and then all you need to do is click through. Once completed it adds to your balance, this saves you having a few balances at once.

Thats just a few that I use and as I said before you can spend as much or as little time as you want on them. In the week I will pop on and do the basic clicks and watch a few videos. Once Aidan has gone to bed I will sit and do a couple of surveys. A few people I know have managed to make in the region of £1000 - £2000 in a year, and who wouldnt want that extra!


  1. I love all these sites, although I have yet to join Superpoints. I wouldnt be able to manage without the vouchers etc I earn from them throughout the year xx

    1. Get yourself on superpoints!! Its only a few clicks a day, its not going to make you a millionaire but every little helps as they say!


Thank you so much for your comments, I love to read them :-)
