Hi everyone,

I’ve just had my second baby and looking for a way to make some extra cash while I’m at home. I’ve started swag bucks and other survey sites and I’m looking for some more ideas.
Congratulations! You're definitely in the right place. I'm on my second mat leave and thankfully I've now learnt what works and what doesn't for me. Before mat leave, utest was my highest earner but I don't have that block of time anymore which is a shame. But sites like that (usertesting and whatusersdo too) are great earners. You just have to be quick.

Hi all, I am a mum to three boys, and work from home as a software tester / developer. I started survey sites and apps last year as figured I was behind the computer most of the time for work anyways it would be worth trying it out, and actually managed to make quite a bit from it. I have paid off christmas, birthdays, and a trip to Disney all in just a year of doing it. I am now starting to look at other ways to make more through things like reselling and matched betting but haven't started it yet.

Hello all

I hope I am doing this right. I’m new and still finding my way around. I’ve been looking through the many useful posts on here for the last month and finally decided to take the plunge and get involved. I’ve managed to make approximately £50 in the past month mostly from prolific and crowdology.

I have today used that £50 to start my matched betting journey (eeek) I am so nervous. I am hoping to find many new to make more money online. I have tried quite a lot so far and unfortunately can’t get on with swagbucks/instaGC. Does anyone have any tips. I wonder if I am something wrong.

hey @Coco79

(Love that film by the way!!)

Looks like you are already off to a food start with Matched Betting! Just take it slow and follow the instructions and you’ll be fine!

Don’t worry about clicksites, I’ve never got on with them either!!

Is there a ball park figure for how much you are looking to earn each month?

Hi

Thank you for the reply. I’ve just placed my free bets and so will now have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens. Sorry if this is a silly beginners question but if I end up with profit in my skybet account do I withdraw that profit straight away? I get that it makes sense to leave money in the exchange but wasn’t sure about the bookies... getting nervous about being gubbed already .

I am hoping to make £300 a month.

Once you are done with an offer just withdraw it from the bookie :)

Hi everyone! I'm ladymissell, I'm a new member of TMS. Found it by scrolling through hashtags about budgeting and frugal living on insta (don't judge me :oops:) as I'm desperate to get out of debt and be financially independent. Had a bit of a crisis in my personal life in the last couple of months and it's made me realise how bad I am with money and how much that has affected every area of my life.

My goal is to make an extra £2k a month, with extra hours at work and side hustles (I've started matched betting, mystery shopping and an absolute ton of survey apps/sites), and I'm also going to apply for a 2nd job which is coming up in January. With the extra income I want to pay off all my debts and not be over my overdraft limit every month, which is the worst feeling ever!! :eek::mad::eek:

So good luck to all the other newbies, and thanks in advance to the veterans here who have such great inspirational stories and advice!

Thank you! It's always easy to start these things though - the test for me will be to keep it up and stay dedicated to it!

Hello, my name is Ellie, I think this is a great site for sharing money making ideas and have previously used sites recommended on here for survey companies and still use Prolific Academic which has come in handy many a time when I have been short of money.

Hi all,

I'm Neil, I signed up today after finding a link here whilst looking into field agent as I live in a medium-sized town and wanted to be sure I wouldn't be wasting time .. looks like i might be.
I'm starting up my own small business but want to make a bit on the side to cover any extras, looking for at least £300 a month but click sites like Swagbucks just weren't enough. Looking forward to finding new and interesting ways of earning a little (even if it's enough for a bottle of wine on a Friday night I'll be happy!).

Hey @NeilE

Fantastic to have you on here and posting!

£300 a month wouldn't be any trouble but like you've found out, you need to drop the likes of Swagbucks / clicksites and instead do more higher paying work that pays you better for your time!!!

Hello.

I follow this site on twitter, I think it was recommended to me by GPTGenies.
I've got chronic illness and I'd like to be able to bring in some money during the times I am well enough. So I thought I'd come and have a look and see what new things I can try.

Thanks

Great to hear you were sent our way by @GPTNikki and co

Do you have a ball park figure for how much you are looking to earn each month?

Thanks for the welcome!

A few hundred would help. I've been looking at the matched betting stuff. Can you clarify for me what I'd be paying if I sign up for PA now? I get a trial, I saw that. Do I have to deposit any money to get going? How much do they then charge after the trial?

Thanks

I started with £60 and never put any more money in and have made over £40,000+

PA membership is £17.99 which is obviously irrelevant when you look at how much you will make each month!
