LifePoints (MySurvey & GlobalTestMarket have merged)

I’m quite slow getting around to writing this post, so my regular readers may already be aware of the change! MySurvey & GlobalTestMarket have closed/merged and become LifePoints. Accounts are supposed to have been moved over properly, but some, including my own, don’t seem to have been merged correctly! Hence the delay in this post. Still, I’m going to write a quick post about LifePoints for anyone who may be looking for a new survey website to sign up to. Also, if you’re looking to make some money then check out my ways to make and save money online. If you want to skip reading this post then just *sign up to Lifepoints!

YouGov

YouGov is one of the most well known survey companies, in my opinion. Their surveys regularly feature in a variety of newspapers and on topical panel shows on the TV also. I quick like knowing that I’ve taken part in these surveys!

I receive £50 3 or 4 times per year so it is a slow burner but definitely worthwhile as they do genuinely payout. I’m typically receiving 3-5 surveys per week. The surveys are short and very simple to complete. They usually ask a few questions at the end, with regards to upcoming surveys. This is to save you filling out numerous unpaid surveys and profile surveys over and over again.

My absolute favourite ways to make money online

I quit my job in 2013 to work for myself full-time, as my regular readers will know. I’m really proud that I have created a job that I can do, at home, working for myself. I’ve always wanted to be self-employed and now I am really am living my dream! I am earning a full-time income and have been able to have some wonderful holidays, and other treats, for my family over the last year in particular using the money that I have earned. I’m also debt free – which is a wonderful feeling, and feel the most financial aware that I have ever been. I love being able to make money online!

If you’re someone who doesn’t have a lot of time, or a lot of energy to dedicate, there are still some fantastic ways that you can make money online.

My absolute favourite ways to make money online

Matched betting – Play the bookies at their own game and make yourself a profit. I even made £15,000 in just 4 months! I once had a single day where I made £7,906.12 – there is screenshot proof too!

Paid surveys – I love getting paid for giving my opinion. I even wrote a Survey Bible over on The Money Shed.

Mystery Shopping – Get paid to eat lunch – who doesn’t love free food?!

You can also look at money saving as another fantastic way to increase your family budget. You can save money on your shopping, sell off those old gift cards and much more. I’m a big fan of meal planning, batch cooking and using my slow cooker to save money and time. Nothing beats avoiding the takeaway again with a nice dinner that you prepared first thing in the morning when you had the motivation!

Use The Money Shed Survey Bible to find paid surveys

Regular readers of mine will know that I love paid surveys. Personally, I complete most of my paid surveys in around 30 minutes a day. I like to keep my emails for the day in one folder (imaginatively titled ‘Surveys’) and then I work through and delete the lower paying ones. Then I ensure that I complete my surveys as quickly and efficiently as I can. When I am looking for other ways to earn money I visit The Money Shed. The Money Shed is a UK based forum that allows me to speak to other like-minded money makers. While I am already something of a seasoned veteran when it comes to making money online even I have picked up some new websites for paid surveys and other tips.

Top 5 survey websites

I am a fan of survey websites and have been for a number of years now. Surveys are often frowned upon by people who earn money on the internet. Some people assume that surveys will pay you 50p for 30 minutes work. By being selective about the companies that you use it is possible to make a nice amount of money per month. You may never be able to work from home solely completing surveys, however, you could certainly enjoy a nice holiday or save towards a new car. You could take some of your survey earnings and use them for matched betting. This is a fantastic way to make some extra money.
