Affiliate links in this post will be clearly marked with a *. Clicking one of these links means I earn a discount or receive payment.
I use a number of ‘Get Paid To’ websites, such as Swagbucks and Clixsense. In addition to this I use *InstaGC and several other websites, that I will write about in the coming weeks.
‘Get Paid To’ websites pay their members to complete tasks. These usually range from watching videos, clicking on adverts and links, answering surveys, filling in survey profiles for upcoming projects, joining websites and providing sign up information for competitions.
*InstaGC is a little different to most of the ‘Get Paid To’ websites in that they allow you to cashout your points instantly for gift certificates. The minimum redemption level is just £1 of Amazon, with others vouchers on offer including those from Asos, iTunes, Starbucks UK and Skype. There are several other UK based vouchers on offer and there are a vast array of different vouchers available for the USA and other countries around the World.
*InstaGC is something of a slow burner for me. I tend to input booster codes that I find on the MSE website and these are usually worth from 2-5 points, with 160 points netting me a £1 Amazon gift voucher. There are usually a few booster codes released every week, so that is a small boost over the year to the Christmas Amazon pot.
Another way that I boost my points on the website is by checking out the offer pages. Here I find videos to watch and websites to visit. In addition to that I sometimes provide my details for competitions or website registrations and these take just seconds, thanks to Google Chrome’s auto form fill feature. These are usually worth at least 50 points, which for a few seconds isn’t bad at all.
This is one of my lowest paying sites, as I complete most of the surveys and offers found here elsewhere, for higher remuneration. I still make at least £30-£40 a year, sometimes more, so I tend to save these vouchers up for Christmas time, and they usually help me get a few stocking fillers for my husband.

I’ve got a whole host of different ways that I make and save money online. I make a full-time income from blogging thanks to affiliate marketing but I also love paid surveys and mystery shopping too for some extra funds!
