I do loads. Don't make a massive amount of money but it easily covers my broadband bill and a few treats for me

Will have a look through my bookmarks and sort out some links for you.

See previous discussion - funny, thought I had a touch of deja vu with this thread

Don't bank on any of them making you a bucket load of cash.

I do most of them in between catching up on posts on here and probably spend 5-10 minutes a day max on average. Really easy if you are just clicking on a website whilst waiting for something else to load.

Strongly recommend setting up a new email address for any you do as a lot of them involve signing up for newsletters etc. With a seperate email address dedicated to your surveys and webclicks you can keep on top of spam.

I do ciao and gozing , which both pay actual money though not very much. pinecone research pay £4 for a survey once a month.

I do a TV/radio listening survey where I just won a £5 prize (haven't got it yet!) Can't find a link atm.

Various surveys offer points but I actually like doing them anyway - Harris Poll, YouGov etc.

mutualpoints is great and even better if you ever remember to click through their links when you buy online! (I spent £200 on amazon the other day - college books for DD2 - forgot all about it! But I recently got a £20 cheque from them, having laboriously worked up to 3000 points.)

How do you get on with ciao Jan? I always seem to get screened out of the surveys after a dozen or more questions so don't get paid. I gave up in the end as I was wasting a lot of time on them.

Hm - good point, StG - just checked my record and I have earned £25 in 2 years! Mind you I'm often slow to pick up on surveys and they are full before I start.

I pick them up within max 12 hrs of recieving them and they are still often full.

I agree with you about mutualpoints - the easy click stuff takes a long time to build up the points but use the site for shopping and it's much faster. We got our house insurance through the site last year - 3000 instant points so £20
