    All the online survey sites I have personly been on seem to be like 0.5p per 15page survey. Takes the pi$$.

    that's 200 surveys for a pound I can't believe I thought doing online surveys would make me any money, it'd practically have to be a full time job if you wanted to make anything!

    Ok, what I posted was a slight exageration, but you do have to do loads to earn any respectable amout of money.

    If you do want links to survey sites, I can dig some up for you - but as above you won't make anything very fast that way.

    I've made £9K in less than 6 months, selling on ebay (you might find the post of about this in my past threads) apart from the many paypal hassles it's been the most exhilarating and rewarding idea i have ever had.

    Well I do some surveys online for 'lightspeed panel'. They're really good and give you £1 for like a 10 minute survey.

    It's a pharmaceutical that I used and knew very well before hand. Don't want to say any more than that.

    Try Dooyoo- writing reviews = 50p per review, then 1.5p per member that views your review. Got £20 for writing 18 reviews. (amazon voucher tho but will be useful for uni). you can also copy+paste your reviews on ciao.co.uk but on there you only get money for the views on your reviews. lower payout though i think.

    PTC sites... dont earn much but its pretty easy. try sterling mails, britannia mails and archerfish

    Cashback sites- get a bit of money for signing up to things, try fat cheese or topcashback (no admin fee). try daily clicks too- look on moneysavingexpert.com forums and search for daily clicks, tedious but it tends to work eventually. you can get e.g. £10 for doing a lovefilm trial or something. i've earnt £200 from wepromiseto but now they're a bit crap lol. also you can get money from opening bank accounts-i got £20 for opening a savings acct.

    obviously ebay-maybe try buying things from charity shops or something that are really cheap then sell them for more on ebay?

    what about selling games/cds back? musicmagpie i think buys cds but not for very much.

    if you have the time/patience there's always matched betting..

    check out MSE forums though-go on the up your income part

    oh and surveys-try home of research, toluna seems to take ages for me to get to payout but maybe not for others, they pay around £1-2 for a survey.

    thats a good survey site - you get £3 just for signing up, and then ~£1 per survey, plus 20p for every friend you refer. You can get payouts after £10 as well instead of £50. If you can get some mates to sign up with you you can earn pretty fast
