After a good start to the year, I wasn’t overly hopeful that February will see me earn as much as January. However, at least there are 29 days in the month this year! Plus, I had a week and a half of leave from work, so had more time to spend on surveys.
But… I earned far more than I expected. Below is a breakdown of all money made for February (figures in brackets are my earnings for the year).
Again, the bulk of my income has come from survey sites. Prolific has been the biggest earner, with IntelliZoom coming in a close 2nd.
I had 2 long-term survey sites payout too. Populus Live (a site everybody should join) and OpinionHive. OpinionHive has taken over 18 months and I’ll publish a full review soon.
I’ve also earned a decent amount from some quick surveys on my phone – AttaPoll, Qmee, Curious Cat and OnePulse.

Last month, I earned £40 cashback from Santander for switching my broadband to NowTV. This month, I earned another £90 from that deal, which was paid into my TopCashback account. You can take a look at how I managed to get 5 months of broadband for free. Apart from that, I have done very little shopping again (probably a good thing).
