£100 Christmas Challenge + GIVEAWAY – Earn an Extra £100 for Christmas

Published by Bee Money Savvy on

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.

The £100 Challenge

The rules of the game are simple. Starting from now you have until Christmas to earn an extra £100! Your methods are up to you and depend on your circumstances. But keep reading to find out how I’ll be earning my extra £100 & download my printable progress tracker below…

Earn Quick £££’s Now…

Let’s kickstart your challenge by earning some quick money today!

Cleo (£5 Cash) – Cleo is a chatbot that helps you manage your money. Through Facebook Messenger you can use Cleo to get updates on your spending habits. Once you’ve set up your “Cleo wallet” you’ll be credited £5 – you can withdraw this straight into your bank account.

Monese (£15 Cash) – Monese is the mobile app alternative to a traditional bank. When you first download the app and input code N9DQMPHE you’ll get a bonus £15 on your first £50 deposit. You can use this money like a normal debit card or withdraw it straight into your bank account.

Curve (£5 Cash) – Curve allow you to link all of your existing debit and credit cards onto one card (and an easy to use app). You’ll get 1% cashback on purchases at selected retailers for 3 months. If you use promo code J7NOW when signing up you’ll be given £5 credit for free! Read more…

Monzo (£10) – Open a Monzo account through a friends link, request a card and earn £10 in time for Christmas! Use my link here.

Earn £50 by Switching Energy Provider

earn £50 with bulbIf you’ve not switched energy provides for over a year, switching now will save you around £200-£300 a year!

I recently switched to Bulb (they’re cheaper than British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, npower, ScottishPower and SSE). Not only do Bulb sort everything out for you (including cancelling your previous provider). You also get £50 for switching via the link below.

Money Making Websites…

Prolific Paid ResearchProlific is a survey site with a difference. Academic researchers post studies on prolific to recruit research participants fast. The pay out is so much better than any survey site I’ve ever used and you can see exactly how much you will earn before agreeing to take part in a study. I challenge you to earn £20 in the next month with Prolific! Read more…

OhMyDosh Offers – OhMyDosh is a website that pays you to complete offers or tasks. Within 30 days I managed to earn £25 using OMD. Get a £1 sign up bonus and cash out once you’ve earned £10.

Swagbucks Task Website – Earn money cards when you shop online, watch videos, take surveys, play games and use promo codes with Swagbucks. I earn at least £5 a week from Swagbucks! You’ll also get a 500 point bonus (worth £3) when you earn 300 points in the first month. Read more…

Earn Cashback on Your Shopping

Earn money with topcashbackTopCashback has been in my money saving arsenal since I started online shopping. I have now earned over £350 just by using this fab website.

The process is simple, sign up to TopCashback and do your online shopping through them. They get commission from the retailer for referring you, and then TopCashback pay that commission back to you!

Money Making iPhone/Android Apps…

BeMyEye Task App – BeMyEye pays you to complete easy audits such as identifying coffee machines, taking pictures of creative sales displays & reviewing services! You can earn around £4-£8 per task and tasks are pretty regular. Get paid directly into your Paypal account.

VoxPopMe Video Responses – VoxPopMe pays you to record yourself reviewing a brand/service/ad. You only need to record yourself for a minimum of 15 seconds and you usually get paid 25p per video. Cash out into your Paypal account.

Job Spotter – Job Spotter will pay you to upload local job vacancies. If you spot a poster advertising for staff, snap a picture of the advert & you’ll get rewarded with Amazon vouchers.

Christmas Challenge Giveaway…

To help you on your way to £100 I’m also giving away a £20 Amazon Gift card to a lucky reader. Just follow the instructions below and I’ll be contacting the winner on Christmas Eve.
