I won the Lucky Phone Lottery!

Free lotteries are quite a recent thing and some are more well-known than others. The lesser known ones give you a better chance of winning a prize as you have less people to compete against but the prizes are smaller. that is fine for me, all winnings are great.

The Lucky Phone Lottery prize that I have recently won is not actually a draw but I cashed out my points. In lucky phone lottery you gain loyalty points for matching certain amounts of numbers and I accumulated enough to cash out £10.

If you are interested in joining up then please click the links below. Please note that I have also won £5 and other prizes on the Birthdate lottery so would recommend that one if you want to be more actively involved in a site and have the opportunity to win more prizes.

I won - YAY!!!

Free Birthdate Lottery has been running a competition over the last few days and I was one of the lucky winners! The site has been struggling with hosting problems over the last few weeks and so they have lost some members and desperately need people to sign up in order to keep things going. It is a friendly and fun site with lots of things to do as well as links to competitions, blog posts on how to make money online and a free lottery of course. At the moment they are crediting each member 50p for each new referral which they will have added to any prize if they win the lottery. It is a friendly site and it would be lovely if as many people as possible could sign up and help them be the success that they deserve. Plus you could be in with a chance of winning money everyday for free!

How to Make Money from Online Surveys

I make quite a lot of money doing online surveys and I thought that it might be useful to share some of my secrets!

The main site that I earn form is YouGov. This only sends out surveys that I am qualified to do which means that I get credited for every survey, which is one of the reasons that I like them so much. They also give surveys which are politically based and the results get passe don to the UK media often, which also makes them fun. They do not pay out until you have reached £50, which seems a lot, but is worth the wait. They pay through BACS straight to your bank account but you do have to claim a payment, once you have earned enough and it takes a few weeks to arrive.

I also earn a lot on a site called Clixsense through answering surveys. These are not so much fun as they have screening questions and it can take a good few minutes to find out whether you qualify and if you do not, you will not get paid. They also sometimes give you the same ones and you cannot get credited twice. However, they do pay reliably and there are other ways to earn money on their site and with a cash out minimum of $8 it does not take too long to get money out.

Pureprofile gives surveys as well as having other ways to earn money. What I particularly like about this site is that it pays you even if you are screened out of surveys and this means that you do not feel that you are wasting your time. However, you do have to earn £25 to cash out and I do not get sent surveys that often.

Lastly Hiving Panel is another survey site that I use. They pay after you earn just $4 so you can try it out and cash out quickly. However, they do screen you out of surveys quite often and you do not get credit for these.

There are obviously advantages of being a member of lots of survey sites as you have more opportunities to earn. However, most of them, apart form YouGov get surveys form the same sources and this means that you may do a survey on one site and get screened out on another as you have already done it. This can waste time and be rather annoying. Therefore it is probably best to just choose YouGov and one other site, if you wish to earn with surveys.

Problems for Free Birthdate Lottery

The Free Birthdate Lottery have been having some server and hosting problems lately. Due to growing their users and adding lots of site content it means that the site has had a lot of downtime. However, it is a fantastic site which the owner is really passionate about and so it is still worth persevering with. If you have not yet signed up, then it is still worth having a go and you may even win a great prize in their free draws, of which there are two a day. There are also ways to earn points which you can trade in for chances to win cash prizes, other competitions as well as games and a very friendly forum plus blog posts to read each day.

Plus this is the only free lottery site where I have actually won a prize so I feel rather more positive about this one than the others!

Free Postcode Lottery

The Free Postcode Lottery is the biggest free lottery site and therefore has the biggest prizes. There are five draws a day and chances to win anything from £5 to a rolling jackpot which has got up to £1000. This is because if a claim is not made, that amount rolls over to the next day and adds on to that days jackpot. This site is hugely popular which means that the odds are winning are lower, but it is still worth having a go as it only takes a minute or less a day to check to see if you have won.

If you get referrals you can build up extra credits as you can if you do tasks on the site too. Thsi means that when you do win your credits will be added to your prize fund.

New Referral Competition on The Street Lottery

Although The Street lottery looks rather less professional than some of the other lottery pages I am still seeing whether I can win. I feel that it is worth a small amount of time each day. It has a new referral competition as well, which looks interesting and also should encourage new members which could mean that the prize fund will be able to be increased or that there will be more opportunities to win. At the moment there is one draw, with one prize a day. Today it was $15 which is certainly better than nothing!

They are running a referral competition at the moment. For every person that you refer they will award you a free referral and the top ten referrers will also get bonus referrals. The advantage of having referrals is that if they win and make a claim on a day that you also visit the site, you will get 20% of what they win, surely worth a try!

Cashing in!

At the moment the pound is dropping in value against the dollar due to the uncertainty of the EU referendum vote. This is something that I plan to take advantage of as most of my payments are in dollars. This change in value of the pound effectively gives me a pay rise and so I will making sure that I cash out and earn as much as I can in order to take advantage of this. I am guessing that the effects will last up until the vote and then what happens after will obviously depend on the result. I assume that things will get more and more uncertain as we get nearer to the voting day on 17th June but to be sure we will all need a crystal ball!

Making a Grand Total of £525.35

It was interesting that I have not made a post since last months earnings summary. This shows how busy I have been which is reflected in the fact that I have made more this month than I have since February 2014. It feels great to have a decent looking balance for a change which is pretty much due to picking up some new clients for my writing work and getting the Yougov pay out. The writing came as a result of looking for new work on Digital Point Forums.
