I've had an awful couple of days. In my department at work there are 3 of us - 1 is on holiday and the other fell at the weekend and has been off all week over our busiest time of the month. I've not overly enjoyed being in work for half 7 and then leaving at 6!

I've tried my best though. The 7th wasn't too bad. £4.40 from Prolific and some others elsewhere saw £5.30 come in. An average day which really needed a boost from Matched Betting which I haven't done since Sunday.

Yesterday was the busiest day I've had in a long time and I only made £1.68! What a complete catastrophe! I did manage to do my Leapforce work though which was a saving grace. Still....




1st = £9.96 + $6.30
2nd = £18.48 + $5.83
3rd = £4.82 + $5.83
4th = £0 + $5.60
5th = £26.44 + $5.83
6th = £5.13 + $7
7th = £5.30 +$5.13
8th = £1.68 + $6.53
November total to date = £71.81 + $48.05



It's not a complete disaster. This will be the worst week I have for sure this month so if I can keep within touching distance of £10 a day then I'll have a chance thanks to Leapforce. $48 is around £35.00 so with this I'm well ahead of schedule. I'm still waiting on my first ever payment from Leapforce so I'm not relying on it just now.

After the disappointment of Wednesday I really needed a solid Thursday to put me back on track. Thankfully the guys at Curious Cat kept throwing surveys at me which made the day a bit better!

£5.23 was made in surveys overall with just around £3 from Curious Cat! A bonus of £1.50 on Prolific came in handy as well.

Matched betting actually saw me make some money for the first time since Sunday! £6.25 from that taking my total for the day up to £11.48. At long last a day to be happy with!


1st = £9.96 + $6.30
2nd = £18.48 + $5.83
3rd = £4.82 + $5.83

5th = £26.44 + $5.83
6th = £5.13 + $7
7th = £5.30 +$5.13
8th = £1.68 + $6.53
9th = £11.48 + $6.77
November total to date = £83.29 + $54.82

Less than £7 behind my daily target which isn't too bad considering how mental a week I've had. Had hoped for decent offers for the Euro play offs this week but there's not been any so far. This weekend might be a struggle....

Absolutely loving Leapforce though. Every day my fiance puts on Neighbours to watch and I sit and do the Facebook ad reviews :cool:

Thank the Lord it's Friday!

Apologies for the lack of updates this week. I had a job interview last week which was successful so I've been awful busy sorting things out here. Have also had a few days of starting work before 8 and not getting home til after 6 which has made it hard to do anything.

I've done Leapforce almost everyday and I've managed the occasional survey. Matched Betting I've made £0 with. I'll try and post a proper update again in the coming days.

This last week has been a bit manic and a massive letdown in terms of boosting my income. As stated above I've been offered a new job at work which has meant I've had a hectic week or so trying to sort out stuff with my old job. Still not got a start date for the new gig but I've worked 2 42 hour weeks in a row now and I've been struggling!

Surveys I made £21.55 from the 10th-20th and I've only managed to make £10.88 from Matched Betting at the weekend. I reckon that now puts me at £115.72 for the first 19 days of the month. Miles behind where I want to be although I did set myself a rather high personal target this month. Really need a Bet 365 offer for this week!

I've kept doing Leapforce though and that's sitting at just over $100 for the month. I'm yet to receive my payment for last month but it has all been approved for just over $75. Better than nothing!

So after the shambles of the last week or so I was really needing a good day yesterday to give me some belief that I can achieve a decent return this month. Step forward Ladbrokes....

Ladbrokes very kindly gave me £5 for their gaming site. Now I normally avoid slots as I've never won more than an about £2 so I was going to give this a miss until my fiance insisted we put on Arthur Christmas for our 4 year old nephew that we were babysitting. Chose a random game and managed to cash out £28 about half an hour later. A nice little boost!

A solid day with surveys too saw £6.36 come in. Mainly down to Curious Cat (managed to do 3 surveys in a row which brought in over 300 points!) but it was also a good day on One Poll and VYPR. £34.36 in total for the day puts me up to £150.08 after 20 days. Should easily get to £200 but it all comes down to Leapforce to get me near £300.....

Leapforce is now at $108.26 and I'm still waiting on last month's total coming into my account!

Have just had the confirmation email from Leapforce that they are paying me £56.81 for my October Nile work. I took far too long to get going with it but have got into a routine now so have only missed 1 day this month so far. That coupled with the £229.41 that I earned from Matched Betting and surveys means I ended up with £286.22 from October.


August - £207.59
September - £261.63 (only figure I can find but I thought I was higher than that!)
October - £286.22
November -

I started the month trying to earn £10 a day split between surveys and matched betting. MB has dried up for me just now basically - money had to go out towards stuff for the wedding and obviously some christmas shopping has held me back a bit. Once again I made nothing from this yesterday....

Survey wise?


I've no idea how but I ended up with £10.07 from surveys yesterday. I had an insane day on QMEE which brought in £3.04, Curious Cat was purring with £1.78, Prolific Academic decided to give me £3.35 of surveys while One Poll edged up to £38.40 (£1.15 for the day). VYPR is sitting just below 9000 points and I finally managed to finish an I-say survey worth 75 points. That leaves me at £160.15.

Leapforce now up to $113.39 which according to Google is £85.58. My £10 a day target would obviously see me at £210 just now so being at roughly £245.73 is amazing!

In fact the figures I have for the previous 3 months total £755.44....coupled with the running total of November means that I am now at £1001.17 since starting all this!

An ok day yesterday survey wise saw £7.40 come in. Prolific is back to giving me 2 or 3 surveys a day which has been great. Best one yesterday saw me play a card game for 10 minutes and then 2 minutes of questions for £2. Easy money.

Matched betting saw £0 again. I was going to do the Betfred offer last night but you had to bet £20 on Chelsea v Qaraberg which I struggled to find good odds with once it was 1-0 and the home team were down to 10 men. Just left it as it was only for £2 or £3.

Leapforce moves up to $119.92 while the other income reaches £167.55. Sadly One Poll is now at the point where I'm close to the cash out limit so I'm getting screened out of every one!

Prolific Academic <3

Yesterday alone on PA I made £11.00! Coupled with £1.44 from QMEE, £1.27 from I-Say, £0.86 from Curious Cat and £0.95 from One Poll plus some others I made a whopping £16.08 yesterday from surveys alone!

Certainly the best day I've had with surveys. My £5 from VYPR is on it's way now and I'm just 25p away from hitting the One Poll £40.00 limit.

Leapforce is now at $125.99 which is just below £95 today. Absolutely delighted with this - an easy extra £100 a month is greatly welcomed!

£183.63 + $125.99 for the month to date.

Now to try and avoid the Black Friday sales as I'll spend a fortune!

What a crazy busy week it's been! Sadly not in terms of boosting my income....

£183.63 + $125.99 was my total at start of play on the 24th. Since then it's been a slow journey to try and get towards my £300 target. Survey wise I made £21.42 - largely down to Prolific Academic going crazy for a couple of days. Sitting with over £30 in it for the first time ever. Cashed out my One Poll for the last time at £40.00 and I'm up to £3.65 of the new £25.00 target.

There has been others of course but these have been the biggest 2. That sees me at £205.05 for the month before including leapforce....I've just submitted my invoice for $161.23 which according to Google equals £119.26. That puts me at £324.28 for November and I've hit my target barring a crazy change in exchange rates!

You're making a decent amount of income each month. I've only recently been accepted to Leapforce (now Appen) and it's good to get a feel for how much I can earn from this.

Leapforce has been brilliant so far to me. As I said above I have roughly made £120.00 from them last month and it has to go down as the easiest work out there. It's a bit boring but clearly is worth it!

December has started off slowly mainly down to me having no money available just now. In this month we have to pay the photographer, videographer, invite designer and I need to put down the deposit for kilts. An expensive month before we get anywhere near Christmas!! So Matched Betting is pretty much a write-off this month as I've very little funds available.

So it's all coming down to surveys and a busy weekend means I'm sitting with just £2.73 earned in the opening 3 days! I'm going to have to be reasonable this month and say just £250 for my target so well behind.

Leapforce though has been done everyday - $18.33. So it's not a total disaster!


Can I just say thanks to everybody for their positive words throughout the thread. Sat and read my first few posts earlier today - I forgot all about the person who thought I was a girl :D

This thread is becoming a bit boring with me literally just posting my survey total for the day and then my Leapforce earnings. One day soon I will win money on the lotto and this will be a much more interesting read!

So yesterday was quite a good day survey wise. In the morning I set myself a target of going from £2.19 to at least £5 on QMEE. Ended the day with £5.67 so aiming to hit £8 today. I don't really enjoy these surveys but they seem to regular and easy enough.

Prolific came up with a £2.40 survey right as I was going to my bed. Shout outs to VYPR (£0.74), I-Say (£0.72) and One Poll (£0.60) as well. My personal favourite was Curious Cat though....I only did one survey on it yesterday for 19 points but for some reason was credited with 38. No complaints from me!

Total for the day was £8.41 and Leapforce was $5.37 taking my monthly totals to...

£11.14 + $30.80. Happy enough with that considering how rubbish a start I had. Need a big day today and I am DETERMINED to get to £10 today in surveys alone!

10:38 in the morning and my QMEE is now at £8.19. Aiming for over £10 now!

Well I can't complain about yesterday. £9.64 taken in from surveys alone is one of the best days I've had without a huge prolific one to boost it. As noted above QMEE was the surprise hero seeing £5.55 come in. Imagine doing that everyday on that one site alone? That's over £150 a month!

The other usual sites weren't actually that good yesterday. Curious Cat saw £1.45 (with about 20 screen outs and 1 completed one) while I managed 2 50p surveys on Prolific. Is anybody else in the daily one now to do with fashion? After doing a pre-survey for £3.00 I'm invited to do a daily survey at 5pm until 8am. Did my first one yesterday and received 50p so a possible £7.00 to be made. Better yet as long as you do 11 out of the 14 they will give you another £10 on top of it meaning it's £20 in total!

Getting close to cashing out VYPR (8090 points right now) and I've just hit my £5 amazon voucher cash out on I-Say. Just in time too! Overall for the day I made £9.64 giving me a monthly running total of £20.78. After an awful start I feel like I've really stepped up the last couple of days.

Aiming for another close to £10 day today. Won't be easy as I've a busy day at work so fingers crossed! Leapforce now at roughly $36 for the month.
