    I did very well, don't want to name figures as it's not me and it won't be too accurate, but my 'earnings' did include two PSPs, two Nintendo DSs, a PS2, an iPhone 8GB, an iPod touch 8GB and various webcams, all brand new which were mostly sold on eBay.

    I did earn a good amount of direct cash to PayPal too but had to stop as it was going to be investigated and seems too much hassle than it was worth, so choosing small electronics as rewards and then selling them for cash was the best strategy even though I lost about 10% compared to taking straight cash. :mad: haha! :p:

    I used to be active on Exceem but only mustered 100 or so posts, the people there are so arrogant and nobody is friendly at all! It’s all ME ME ME and MY EARNINGS ARE MORE THAN YOURS HAHA and it annoys me so much so I don’t use it any more.
    And trading refs on it is useless too!

    How much have you earned mate?
    I have about £40 capital at the moment in my bank account, what can I do to start earning like you? My main savings are divided into 2 Saving accounts. Only my Bank account with like £45 is hooked to my Paypal.

    Can you give me more advice and what to do please?

    Thanks

    That looks quite good, if you really look around you should be able to get a decent job. Some of my friends left School with only like Bs and Cs and still gets a full-time cashier job at Morrisons.

    When I was 16 I couldn't get a job either. If your family has any way of hooking you up with some experience it would really be very beneficial.

    Bit random, but a good place to start would be volunteering. You wouldn't get money from it, but you'll get the experience you need that paid jobs look for. Check out your local charity shop. It will show potential employers that you're keen to work, you're not selfish, etc which are huge plus points =)

    Ooh cool. I was very active on there until recently. But many members as you rightly said were arrogant and not friendly, and always bragging. Still keep in contact with a few on there though as there are some very decent members on there too! I was biker14 btw, who were you, might recognise you from there! I must have made close to £10k. Last count i did was a while back and £7800 but lost count from there because i did keep track of everything i had got! I'm still getting a couple of referrals from my website through google (www.freebiehome.co.uk) but its not a lot. Maybe 1 every week or 2 for freebiejeebies who have the best owners around, very helpful and very honest people and very quick at things. Still not bad though when you can consider a referral to be worth around £20. When did you start and finish with it?

    Try the shops in your high street...especially the supermarkets, they're always looking for people!

    I work at Sainsbury's and there are loads of 16-18 year olds who work at the weekend, its a laugh and the work isn't too hard and the pay is okay for what the job is i guess...just a suggestion though!

    Many people don't have the patience, some people find ways straight away. But its unlikely you will find ways straight away, some have been working at it for ages and never found ways. Its the luck of where you look really. But the more popular site you find a way to get your referral link on the more likely the success will be if the link will be seen by many that is!
