Ways to make money online & save it too – my favourite posts!

I love helping people make and save money online. As I have over 900 posts now it can be a little difficult to pinpoint the ones that you might be here to find! I have lots of ways to make money online – and save it too!

All of these websites are free to join, free to use. Also anything I advertise here I have personally been paid for using them in the past. If you want more details on exact payment terms or anything else then please do contact me.

Ways to make money online

I have to start by saying that matched betting is my absolute favourite way to make money online these days. I have had some big wins, including one win of £7,906.12 that took just 10 minutes.

Also, I’ve been able to save a deposit for a house for us now. We’ve even put £50k in premium bonds thanks to matched betting!

My EverUp review talks about a savings app that I use to help me win small amounts of money throughout the month. They also have free daily prize draws and best of all they often have an offer running to get you cash when you sign up!

I’ve written quite a few posts giving an honest opinion on matched betting:

The pros and cons of matched betting – This is an honest look at the good and bad sides to matched betting.

How I made £15,000 in just 4 months – A look at some of my matched betting earnings from 2016. I had a great year but 2017 has been EVEN BETTER!

My favourite matched betting service just got even better – Find out more about the reduction in prices and what you can get for your money.

Not everyone is a fan of matched betting but I’d recommend you give it a try for sure. As long as you don’t have any issues with gambling addictions or an addictive personality. You can get started with a *7 day trial for just £1 and you only need £50-£100 to get started. Once you’ve had a try, and made some guaranteed profit, you’ll be building up your bankroll, and profit, in no time.

If you’re a fan of surveys I recently wrote the Survey Bible for The Money Shed. You can find a list of almost all of my favourite survey websites there, as well as details on payment thresholds and times. This is a great post to start with if you are looking to make money some surveys.

If you’re looking to complete paid surveys then these are some of my favourite ways to make money online:

Prolific AcademicBranded SurveysPureprofile, OnePulse, Attapoll, MSR, ValuedOpinionsYouGov, Onepoll, NewVistaLive, Y Live SurveysMingle, i-SayTalkInsightsYourSayPaysOpinium Research, ySense and PineCone Research.

My top tips for completing surveys and avoid survey disqualifications.

Paid focus groups from People For Research pay £40+ per hour!

MarketForce is a great website to dip your toe in the World of mystery shopping. You’re never going to get rich with this company but you can enjoy some nice lunches and a few treats for your family too.

Get paid to websites like Ysense, Swagbucks and Gifthulk are a great place to start. These are quite low paying but if you have lots of time online then they could be useful.

TopCashBack is my favourite website for earning cash back. I’ve made almost £2,000 now! *Quidco is another great website to earn cash back from. Earning cash back on purchases that you would be making anyway is a great idea. You’d be mad not to really! 

Airtime Rewards allows you to earn passive income from purchases you would make anyway just by linking up your credit and debit cards. Daali is basically the same concept too and also free to use!

Do you want to get paid to search the web? Read this post to find out more! You won’t get rich with this one but if you’re using the internet anyway why not get paid to do so?

I’ve recently been using Vinted to clear out old maternity clothes and baby clothing. I’m sharing my top tips for selling on Vinted with you!

Hi Katy, I just have a quick question I am hoping you could help me with. I have just signed up to profitaccumulator and have done the first sign up offers, all is good there. I bought a VPN before i started, though my paddy power account thati opened years ago resticts me with it, I had read that people use VPN's, have you been using one for this and do you recommend a particular one if so? I like your blog by the way. Many thanks!

Hi Jon, sorry for the delay in replying. I'm afraid I don't know anything about using VPNs for Matched Betting. However, if you head over to The Money Shed (banner link on my website above I think) you should find someone at least a little knowledgeable in the matched betting thread. It is free to join.
