I often get asked how much do I make each month and which sites are worth joining. So this year, I’ve decided to write down everything I earn so everybody can see for themselves.
My figures won’t include any money I make from blogging or my full-time income.

Unsurprisingly, the bulk of my income has come from survey sites. IntelliZoom has been the biggest earner, although as a new user, I’m not sure if this will be the same throughout the year.
Prolific is always a steady source of income and YouGov paid out £50, which only happens every few months.
The only real disappointment had been Branded Surveys. I usually make far more, but I didn’t visit the site as much over January.
YouGov £50 – App £2.90
Testable Minds £1.90
Swagbucks £30 (Amazon voucher)
Branded Surveys £7.60
Curious Cat £17.64
Focus groups (including Disney and Kinder) £17 (Amazon vouchers)
There are various apps that reward you with money or vouchers when you scan your receipts. Take a look at the best receipt scanning apps.
Shopprize £5 (Amazon voucher)
SnapMyEats £5 (Amazon voucher)
Cashback is an easy way to make money as it requires very little effort – usually following a link or using a particular card. However, I didn’t shop a great deal this month, so didn’t earn a huge amount. However, Santander paid me £40 for joining NowTV broadband back in November.
Take a look at the best cashback sites.
Airtime Rewards £1.29
Curve card £3.50
