I make money in a variety of ways and I thought it would be helpful to list them here, with the amount that I have made, if possible. This should help you to decide whether the methods are suitable for you. The links included are mainly affiliate links, which means that I will be rewarded if you decide to become a member of that page. I would appreciate it if you do use the affiliate link, but if you would rather not then you can find links to the sites main pages by searching for them in a search engine. I hope this is of some use to you.
Quidco is a UK website which gives you cash back when you shop. You just go to the site and register and then you search for the shop you are buying online from. You will then be given a link to click which will allow you to get cash back from the site when you shop. You can also register your credit card with the site and when you shop in store with certain shops you will also get cash back. You can draw money out as soon as you reach over £1. You can also earn money through referrals; this amount changes but currently is up to £2.50 per active referral. There are also some offers that you can use make money for free, including Quidco opinions which gives your surveys to complete. As this is cash back, it does not count as income so does not have to be declared to the tax office. I have made £798.64 so far.
YouGov is a survey website. It differs form other sites as it will tell you how much you will be paid before completing the survey and you will also be credited that amount. This means that you will not waste your time answering screening questions and often not qualifying like with many survey sites. The surveys are often on politics or television. You can cash out once you reach £50 worth of credits with each questionnaire being worth between 25p and 75p. I have cashed out four times.

You can earn up to four lottery tickets a week and can choose whether you enter the Euromillions Tuesday or Friday draws, Lotto Wednesday or Saturday draws or both. You will only be entered if you have accumulated enough searches. You also get a free entry if you refer a friend and they qualify for a draw.
Free Postcode Lottery
The Free Postcode Lottery is a UK site which has a selection of free draws each day. You just supply your postcode and email address and visit the site after midday every day t o see if you have won. You need to check each draw page and if you have won you will be able to give more details as to how you would like your prize paid to you. You have to visit the pages to claim your prize, as the site is paid for by advertising. This means that if your postcode is drawn and you do not visit the site, you will not be set your prize. It is a free and fun site and you could win from £5 to £700 per draw and you also get extra credits from referring people and visiting the site which will be adding on to your prize money when you win. I have not yet won, but it seems fair and is fun and most importantly free!
