£100 Christmas Challenge – Earn an Extra £100 for Christmas
In 2017, Scottish Friendly found that pressures from family, friends and TV advertisements had plunged Brits into debt at Christmas. With nearly six in ten households making sacrifices to buy Christmas presents, and 31% of those with children relying on credit to fund their purchases.
With Christmas just around the corner I wanted to share some ways that you can stay out of debt and earn some extra money. And with the information on this page I’m challenging you to earn £100(+) in time for your Christmas shopping.
