Hi guys, been researching making money online while at home with my 2 month old and thought i should start with one of these diary thingy-ma-bobs!

I started last Monday so 1 week down! So since 01/04/19 these are my totals:

QMEE - £28.34
LIFEPOINTS - £5.00

Facebook/eBay sales - £97.00


I have signed up to prolific and currently have a balance of £2.20 in there.....but studies seem few and far between, am I missing something?

I have applied to take part in a phone interview with code 3 research but no confirmation that I am in as of yet, fingers crossed!

Curiouscat app keeps playing up for me, ending the survey then taking me to other sites...never ending loop

Maru Voice UK - no surveys available


Struggling slightly, matched betting really is a no go for me, I currently don't have the initial money to lay down and I wont be looking into this until I have a nice chunk behind me.

Any other suggestions?

Another note - just got my car insurance renewal down from £650 to £360 so pretty happy!

Anyways, I'll keep this updated best I can! open to suggestions and recommendations!

Web Search Evaluator work would probably be a good one for you - https://blog.themoneyshed.co.uk/working-for-leapforce/

Are you able to get out and about much? If so the likes of BeMyEye and Roamler on your phone will earn you a good amount ;)

I would also recommend looking into audio typing. Crowdsurf is probably the most flexible in terms of time you have to put in but it also means that it pays the lowest. It still pays more than surveys do though! I'd also look into rev.com, transcribe me and Scribie.

Apps on your phone worth having are Shoppix, Receipt Hog, Citizen Me, Vypr, Clickworker, Qmee, Roamler, Be My Eye, Field Agent (goes through stages but I made £45 last month), iPoll, OnePulse, You Gov. I sit doing these in an evening or while I'm waiting for my daughter at her various clubs. They pay low but it soon adds up and I'd only be playing games otherwise.

Traditional mystery shopping is probably something you could do as well. Good sites for that are Market Force, Grassroots, Tern, Amber Arch and Retail Active.

Sign up for cashback sites, make money back for doing what you would be doing anyway.

For prolific if you're at/near a computer best thing to do is leave a tab open on the prolific studies page and when a study comes in you should see a (1) at the end of the tab name ;)

Hi Jon, to be honest with you I have no idea what web search evaluator is, or involves but i'll have a look!

I downloaded roamler however is asking for a code? No idea where I get one of those from! BeMyEye the only tasks near me are to take photos of tobacco displays which i'm not sure if i'm comfortable doing.

I would also recommend looking into audio typing. Crowdsurf is probably the most flexible in terms of time you have to put in but it also means that it pays the lowest. It still pays more than surveys do though! I'd also look into rev.com, transcribe me and Scribie.

With crowdsurf and audio typing can anyone do it? Or are there certain requirements you need to meet or testing? I'll have a look at the apps you have listed, think I used receipt hog years ago and it gave me 1p per receipt? Is that still the case? Mystery shopping might be something I look in to a few months down the line but thanks for the recommendations :). Cashback sites, I'm already all over them whoop!

Yep that's exactly what I've been doing, however I'm using chrome and loads of the studies say my browser isn't supported? Is that strange?


Anyways my totals so far!

Qmee - £45.86
Curious Cat - £6.58
LifePoints - £25.00
Prolific - £12.48

Total this month so far: £89.92

Don't think that's too bad seeing as its been easter holidays for 2 weeks!


EDIT - forgot the ebay sales!
£97.00

Total: £186.92
