Oct'19 - Part 2 - Earn £10 a day thread - Winter Is Coming!(374 Posts)
Couldn't think of a wittier title, but noticed the previous thread was getting dangerously full up, and it's only the 23rd!
There aren't rules, as long as you've made some extra cash. So from eBay to remote jobs to saving money by switching your house insurance provider - it all counts.
Please don't discuss any clients on the thread or ask for extra information that may compromise Non Disclosure Agreements.

Mrs Wombat, I am still waiting on clickworker to sort out a non-working code for the robot task too. Fingers crossed they pay it!
TheCanterburyWhales, don't feel bad. I have failed one Appen test and then I gave up on another as I just couldn't plough my way through the training. It was so complex and the trial questions didn't seem to tie in with the training. They did still offer me another project so I don't think they hold it against you
Started on the last thread but didn't do much.
Have signed up to Appen but have 9 projects in progress with only been able to do the Noyo one also been accepted on the Nifhliem one but nothing seems to be happening there.
Also applied for crisp and got 19/20 but that was in September and haven't heard yet,though looking at what others have said that's not unusual.
Is there anyway to boost chances of getting a long term project. I would love to get started so I don't have to go back to work next year once my maternity runs out.
Thank you @Otterses for starting these threads! I'm so hopeful now that I might not need to return to work and still earn some money after maternity.
Checking in on the new thread.
I returned to work after maternity 3 weeks ago. Doing 30 hrs a week so I can still do school pick up and drop off for dd1.
Paying childcare for the baby as well so I would really love to get accepted for one of the big ones so I can top up my income.
I’m still waiting on Crisp, passed the test 3 times now! I got paid for some of the clickworker’s pinterest job which was nice and dh is still earning his £10 a day with an Appen project he’s working on.
I stopped MB 3 weeks ago when went back to work as it was too much effort for little profit these days.
@TheCanterburyWhales , so sorry to hear about the Appen task. I really hope you hear back from one of your other processes.
Hello. So our energy bill is sky high and I want to change. Does anyone know of any offers etc I can do whilst changing? I saw on a previous thread someone got vouchers for changing
I'm new on this thread but have been following it since March and have made just under 2k since I started at the end of May on Appen, Prolific, Clickworker, Utest, Football Lottery and several survey sites. Money's really tight here, I've been a stay-at-home Mum for years, now my kids are older I'm starting to get back into freelance work so the extra cash has been a godsend, thank you to those who started off these threads.
@dreamyflower - I switched my energy provider for gas/electricity using Martin Lewis's Moneysavingexpert Energy Club; you get a £25 cashback. Check out Quidco / Topcashback sites too as they often have cashback on energy firms!
Whats the football lottery all about ? Not heard of that before.
@Itsallaboutdamoney sorry I meant Football Index. It's on the March make £10-a-day thread. I signed up using a cashback offer, paid a tenner to join but as soon as I got my cashback paid out I closed the Football Index account; made £25/30 on that.
@dreamyflower if you switch to Octopis you get £50 credit and so do I. We save loads since moving to them. Pay something like £18 a month less than we used to on our monthly direct debit amd we have about £300 credit sitting in our account ready to cover the extra winter costs, we never used to be in credit before we switched so for us Octopus has drastically reduced our bills.
This is my link if you or anyone else would like to use it to get £50 on your account once the switch is complete.
Just placed my first ever MB bet. Was extremely stressful and took flippin' ages as had to keep checking the Team Profit website. Hopefully I've done everything right and it will trigger my free bet
@dreamyflower I switched to Bulb two years ago and have saved a fair amount. Worth a quote and we both get £50 if you use my link. They are a sustainable provider and they've reduced their prices twice since I've been with them.
Thank you 😊 I decided on bulb so used your code!
@dreamyflower thank you! £50 to us each, hurrah! You'll get a recommend a friend code too, spread it far and wide!
I can also recommend Bulb. I've been with them for 2 years and our price comparison always comes up cheaper with them. Money Saving Expert club is also good to take a look at.
£125 this morning for switching to Lloyd's, saw it on the money shed this morning. It apparently hits the account before you switch over completely.
Downside is the hours I will now waste trying to work out how to change my pay information at work
Did you have to switch everything over for that @Otterses ? All direct debits etc?
Anyone doing Nile on Appen? I seem to have been waiting ages on log on details. Also Niflheim, I got an email ages ago to say I was accepted and nothing. I emailed Appen and they were as helpful as ever and said, I'll hear when I hear. It's really quiet, work wise. No crisp here and no longer term projects.
I've not heard from Nifleheim either since the email.
Still waiting for peppermint too, and I haven't heard from Bane Curation - don't know how I have done on that one.
I guess it's just wait and see then.
Yay, finally got my profile activated on Appen. Have registered for all projects I'm willing to do - going to set my sights fairly low and probably assume I won't get anything for a while judging on previous comments.
Starting matched betting today too. A bit nervous!
@MoneyM yay, fingers crossed for some Appen work
Got 20/20 on the Crisp test on the 7th Oct, so i'm now just impatiently waiting for something from them. Thinking of doing the test again (as some people have done, when still haven't heard back) but knowing my luck i'll fail it next time round.
Clickworkers im not getting anything on there really worth doing. If i had an iphone 7 i could have qualified for a couple of well paid tasks, but i only have the 6 and my DS has the 7 but won't part with it.
Im slowly but surely doing MB but even thats going slow due to lack of funds on being able to do more offers. Asi don't want to be using my exchange funds that ive built up, so i have to wait to put a little money in my bank when i can, so i can do more.
Prolific is here and there.
Appen, i finally got my account activated last week (after 2 months) but still nothing, i have one task in progress, im waiting to hear back about.
I was thinking of trying Lionbridge instead, but do they even accept UK applicants ?
Work-from-home ...the time they expect you to be on skype for an interview before you can start, is an issue for me. Staying awake till 2am in the morning is not an easy task when you've been up early and had a busy day, im usually in bed by 11am. So thats not happening.
Cloudworkers - i need to get back in touch with them with my ID, but once again if i start work its staying up till what time in the morning sending msgs. Has anyone on here been with Cloudworkers, is it even worth it ?
So all in all this month ive only been doing MB when i can and Prolific. Which has made me about £20, oh and i won £8.50 back from a purchase i made on Ebay using Boom25.
who was it that mentioned a new cryptocurrency before? was that worth looking at?
I've just been adding up my totals, with 3 days to go the total I've been paid from extra bits just from finding this thread in October is £288.72 plus a £10 amazon voucher so £298.72.
I've got a couple more payment hoping to land in the next few days which will hopefully mean I hit my £310 target. I'm so chuffed!! It's meant I've been able to spoil my husband and mum for their birthdays this month and make a start on the Christmas shopping totally guilt free.
Just want to say again thank you so much for these threads
The cryptocurrency is pi. Still in early stages but you don’t have to do anything just click on it every day or so. My referral link is:
New cryptocurrency is pi
Not sure if it's any good but doesn't cost anything and you just have to click on it every day or so.
My referral link is:
Code is Lemming
Sorry link not in my post. Have a look it might be crap but costs nothing and might turn into something later
