Do you want to earn money for Christmas? I have seven simple tried and tested suggestions which have helped me hugely over the last few months. I’ve been telling  boring all my friends about them as I have been super excited at how easy it can be to earn a few pennies, or even pounds, without leaving the house. So, I thought it was a good idea to write it all down and now I can share the info more easily…

earn money for Christmas

To cut a long story short, after feeling more than a little fed up after doing my tax return, I realised that something had to change and after doing a bit of research I came to the conclusion I could and should have my fingers in lots of pies… so here are seven of my favourite tried and tested ways which can earn you money FOR Christmas.

There are lots of others but I found there are so many that I was getting a little swamped and overwhelmed by the choices but, I’ve whittled them down into my 7 favourite super quick ones to start earning straight away!

I use all seven of these sites/apps daily and so should you!

Earn money for Christmas…

1. Matched Betting…

Just take my word for it this has been life changing. If I hadn’t found this a few months ago things would have been more than a little awkward for us. If you want to know more please feel free to email me. However, I can’t recommend it enough…my first reaction when I heard about it…’gambling, absolutely not’, but it is not gambling it is risk free; it’s not a scheme or a con, you can genuinely make £1000 before Christmas if you start now! The best site for more information is Profit Accumulator and they have a free trial which allows you to try out and get a feel for Matched Betting. It uses a few brain cells at first but once you get into it you’ll wish you started it years ago!

Cashback Sites

If you shop online you must sign up for cashback sites, I signed up to one years ago and never used it…I could kick myself as in just the last few months I have earned over £150 back on purchases I was making anyway, and I haven’t exactly been buying a lot either due to lack of funds.

You will probably have to wait until after Christmas to get the cashback from your purchases, some payments take ages, but don’t do your Christmas shopping without first checking to see if you can get cashback from one of these sites…and when the cashback turns up in the New Year you’ll be really grateful.

My favourite cashback sites are:

2. Quidco


3. Topcashback

Also both sites have a Christmas giveaway running at the moment, prizes include cash, entertainment prizes and draw tickets. So far I’ve won £10 cash, and every penny counts.

Another favourite way to earn extra is..

4. Swagbucks

Swagbucks works in a very similar way to the cashback sites however instead of earning cash you can swap your ‘bucks’ for vouchers, my favourite are M&S vouchers and Amazon ones. Swagbucks can be earned by watching videos, completing surveys, clicking on websites…so you can earn without spending a penny. I try and earn a £20 voucher per month, over a year this really adds up.

5. Receipt Hog

Not everyone ‘gets’ Receipt Hog as it is very very slow and it takes a while to earn anything from it. You probably won’t earn anything from this before Christmas. But, if you shop ( I think most of us do)  all you have to do is take photos of your receipts and upload to the Receipt Hog app to earn ‘coins’ which can be exchanged for vouchers when you have earned enough. If you use my code yent7826 you can get spins which may win you extra coins. This doesn’t cost a penny and it’s worth taking the seconds it takes to upload your receipts.

6. Clickworker

Clickworker is great for finding quick jobs such as mystery shops, being paid to do online searches and download apps. Perfect for fitting in between other jobs.

7. Raffler

Raffler is a no brainer…download the app, watch two very short videos every day and get a daily draw ticket to be in with a chance of winning £1000, or more if your friends and family join too as it boosts your winnings pot! No catch whatsoever. Use my referral code and we’ll both get a £100 bonus. It is 2MRSLI

Extra Tip Alert!

Oh and here is a extra tip – Badger the Button…more free draws so you’ve nothing to lose but you could win £10 in the daily draw! Good luck.

Let me know if you join any of these sites to earn money for Christmas and let me know how you get on. I am just a tad obsessed with finding different ways to make money and think everyone should be doing these simple things if they could do with a little extra money.
