Back in my university days and when I was just starting out on my savings journey I was always looking for ways to help my savings grow.
One thing I stumbled across from recommendations from a savings forum I was a part of, was to complete online surveys and to be members of cashback websites.
Now becoming members of these websites are not going to make you a millionaire, but what I did find was that throughout the year I was able to build up enough points or cash to redeem them around Christmas to help go towards gifts.
These days I use spare time, such as when I am travelling on the train, to complete a survey.
It is not something that is going to return a good hourly rate so I wouldn’t suggest spending hours a day on this but if you do get small pockets of time, it can be a nice little cash bonus.
This is a little gem that I discovered only recently. It is a cashback site rather than a survey site.
Basically the way it works is once you sign up to Cash Rewards if you make purchases from a large selection of online stores you will receive a percentage of cash back.
