I do online surveys, but only stick to one site: Prolific Academic. I like it; the surveys generally pay well and can be quite interesting to do.

I think for a lot of people who do surveys it's PA or bust.. Once you get the higher paying stuff from them it's hard to justify 30 minutes earning 60p lol

I do surveys, (If I am just sitting watching tv, it is hard for me to turn down making some money) but since Match betting, I am doing less as I am much pickier.

I'm on YouGov and isay. However, I prefer YouGov as you get paid more but iSay gives my surveys at least twice a day.

I have exactly the opposite problem. I registered with Populus in 2016. I've only been invited to one survey, back then, and was screened out. Since then, nada. I actually chased them, asking why I am not getting any surveys. I update my profile every 3-6 months.
A couple of years ago, I had a similar issue with Valued Opinions: I had reached £9.50 or so, just under the necessary amount to cash in a reward, and for months on end, I did not get any surveys (probably because I had been kicked out of my last survey as I was not paying attention - easily explained after a long day at work). I emailed them, they started sending surveys again.
Prolific are the most lucrative of all survey websites I've used. In about 8 months, I have earned about £80 (60-odd surveys). What I like most of all is that you don't waste your time answering half a dozen or more questions before learning you don't qualify for the survey!


Should have been clearer meant screened out before being offered, in 3 years i have had one invite from Prolific, and pay was far lower than Populus ones i do, streetbees is pointless, every one tried gets screened out (usually after 30 odd questions LOL)

I like Isay too. Especially because of the low payout amount (£5 Amazon voucher!). I use the vouchers to purchase ink cartridges, I usually have a voucher ready by the time I need to restock!

I am thinking of dipping my toes into matched betting. It's how I found katykicker's blog and ended up here. I have never gambled so it's completely new to me!

That will actually be an advantage

Matched Betting isn't gambling, it's just math, boring boring Math

Do you mean like statistics? I was good at that (and at algebra too) so hopefully this should help me!

No actual math

There is even a special calculator you use when you do it!

My advice would be that instead of reading about it endlessly you give the banner above a click and do the free trial with Profit Accumulator.

You'll make around £45 all while having your hand held throughout with easy to follow videos and instructions and you'll see just how easy it is ;)

Sometimes you can overread things and it can end up sounding far more complicated than it actually is lol

I watched Profit Accumulator's video last weekend. When you go on their website, under 'Free Guides', you get a long, long reading list. I plan to plod my way through it next week. Unless you think I could try and jump into it straight away? I will also need my own 'log', i.e. a spreadsheet to keep track of my earnings. It's what I've been doing for surveys for a couple of years now.

Just jump in straight away.

It’s far easier than reading the guides which are just meant to be reference material anyway not actual instructions for each offer :)

Thanks, will do.
One last question: what are the options for cashing out? Can you use Paypal (or Circle, or Payoneer), or is it a BACS payment to your UK bank account? Also, is it possible to nominate a second bank account, in a different currency (e.g. Euros), but still in your name?

Just keep it simple and use a UK Debit card

A fair number of the sign up offers you will forfeit if you do a deposit that is anything BUT that

Currently being driven mad by Wordpress!!
Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
