Christmas will soon be upon us! As my regular readers will know I have a whole host of ways that I like to make money online. I have even wrote an entire page dedicated to my favourite ways to make and save money.

As some of the websites that I use are slow burners they can take a few weeks or months to reach cash out on. I am sharing with you a few last minute ways to pay for Christmas.

I doubt any of these are going to fund your entire Christmas, at least not at short notice. They are great ways to boost your income a little before the big day and I hope they help!

These are my favourite last minute ways to pay for Christmas

Decent paying surveys, especially during Monday – Friday office house. Surveys are starting at £5+ per hour. Payments are usually made within 1 day and you only need £5 to cash out.

Sometimes one survey is worth more than £5. I’ve had surveys from 10p right up to £20 here and the time they take is usually really worth the payoff.


Complete a few jobs, take a survey, click a few ads. Small money but you can easily hit the $8 minimum cash out and receive your payment in time. Get cracking now to hit cash out in the next week for guaranteed Christmas money.

Get a request in for an Amazon voucher in. Complete surveys, paid market research, earn points for downloading apps or playing games and much more. Payments take up to 10 working days so you’ll need to be prompt with this one. Depending on your account level you may be able to request an instant cashout!


As soon you have made enough points you can cash out for a voucher. Any vouchers in stock are available instantly. I tend to get Amazon UK vouchers from here and you can cash out from just £1 (160 points).


Some cashback can take MONTHS to track. I’ve had something take almost a year before. Obviously this makes it hard to make quick money last minute from TopCashBack but they do often have offers that move to payable quickly and for minimal effort.

Get yourself in the habit of using TopCashBack every time you shop online and you’ll be able to pay for lots of gifts by next christmas!

Depending on when you’re seeing this post it may be getting late in the year to earn some money for Christmas. You could make a rather fast £40 from with their *free trial. I have written posts on matched betting before so be sure to read my pros and cons of matched betting!

I've kind of stopped using swagbucks and clixsense.. just didn't seem to be worth the time anymore.

Prolific Academic is by far my fave survey site right now and i've earnt a few quid from that. Perhaps i'll take some of the others up as i try to increase my income a bit more1

I like to keep my range of websites diverse. So I don't visit Swagbucks as much as other websites, but still check in for easy/quick high paying offers from time to time :)
