Stay At Home Mum Working From Home- May 2019 Earnings

I am a stay at home mum, and I also fortunately have a job where I can work from home. I like using Get Paid To Sites as a side hussle for extra income.

The reason why I like survey sites so much is because I can easily fit it in around the kids and work, and it is a great source of extra income. I manage an extra £300 – £500 a month and only spend 1.5 to 2 hours a day (across the whole day not in one sitting) actively across all of the different sites I use.

Make sure you are in our Facebook Group as during the month of June I will be running a free challenge to help earning with survey sites. This is for both new and existing users of survey sites and aims to increase what you are already earning from get paid to sites and apps by £50.

This month I managed £372.16. Below I have detailed how I managed to accomplish this.

Biggest Earning Survey Sites:

InstaGC is my favourite get paid to site, as it is so incredibly easy. This month I managed $100 Paypal(£80.00) . This is less than I usually manage, but considering there have been two bank holidays and I have had my older two home from school for half-term for a week, I am happy with that. I typically spend an hour a day throughout the course of the day on this site. I look out for high paying surveys on AdWall, Your Surveys, and F8. I also leave videos running, for some passive earnings. Click here to sign up.

Swagbucks is my next favourite survey site. This month I have received £60, and have another £20 pending so £80 total earnings for the month. I haven’t been doing as much with the site this month for the same reasons mentioned above, and because I have been putting more effort into other sites. I have just been setting video apps running throughout the day for easy passive earnings, and completing simple to do list earnings. This month I spent on average 10 mins in total on this site actively throughout the whole day. Click here to sign up.

Additional Survey Sites:

Prolific is another favourite of mine as their studies are different to the other survey sites, and you never get screened out from them. This month I made £29.11 from Prolific. I use the Prolific Assistant Extension for Chrome to alert me when studies are available, which saves me having to constantly check and refresh the page. It is hard to say how long I spend on this site as it all depends on what surveys are available, but most surveys average at about 7 mins each and I usually manage one or two surveys every couple of days. You can sign up here.


Enlightly– This is a nice and easy app to use and it added £18.95 to my earning totals this month, and is an app I would recommend to everyone. It is available to download on iOS or can be accessed here on android via browser. You get 5 points(equivalent of 5p) per question and surveys vary in length from 1 to 22 questions.


Panelbase– This site is new for me this month, so I am trying to get my head around it and best ways to earn. That said, I still managed £15.25 from the site this month. It is surveys and mini polls, and it is very good for getting invited to focus groups and panels for even futher payments. You can sign up here.


Branded Surveys I made £10.01 from this month, I only spend 10 minutes on this site in the evening though. I will make sure to do the daily poll every day for 5 points, and then have a quick go through surveys, attempting the higher pointed ones and quick ones and skipping longer lower pointed ones. You can get up to 5 points a survey if you disqualify, and there are regularly surveys available for over 200 points a go. You can sign up here.


Prize Rebel this site is still new to me, and I haven’t put much effort into it at all, only really only completing the occasional YourSurveys survey. I still managed to cash out £10 though. They pay more for Your Surveys than any other site, so I tend to do these on here. They also have daily bonuses, promo codes and a fantastic referral scheme. You can sign up here.


Apps- Slow Earners(10 mins spent throughout the whole day):

I also use a few apps that don’t earn me massive amounts, but it all adds up and they are very quick and easy to use. This month I cashed out

Vypr£5. I check the app randomly throughout the day to see if there are any steers available to complete. It only takes a couple of minutes so no effort at all, and the questions are always nice and easy.

CitizenMe£4.96 another good one for short and easy surveys. They are usually only very low pointed(£0.10 a survey). They are quick and easy though, and occasionally you do get a higher pointed survey.

Shoppix£5 This is one of the receipt apps I use. I just log in every evening complete any quick surveys that are there, and then upload receipts of any purchases for the day, it takes about 5 minutes. You can find out more about Shoppix here

Pollpass – This site is a bit of fun, and not a massive earner at all. I managed $3.60 from it this month. It is fun though as the questions come in the form of a chat app, and so are easy to complete.

Focus Groups:

I am a member of 4 CSpace panels including Hasbro Family Hotspot and the Beauty Lounge. I make just over £20 a month every month (as long as I participate in the panel). These are always worth looking out for and trying to take part in as they can increase your earnings. They will usually appear as part of a survey on one of the sites mentioned above. I was also selected to take part in a focus group to do with shopping habits which lasted 60 minutes and paid out £60 in Love To Shop vouchers. I also completed a study with Testing Time for £30. I applied to be a part of this panel through a previous study I disqualified on, and they regularly send email invites to participate in studies. We also have a thread in our Facebook Group where you can be referred to studies.


So as you can see Get Paid To Sites is a great little side hussle for extra income, and for very little effort. I have provided links to sign up to all of the sites if you are not already on them. As my referral I do benefit from you signing up with my link, but can provide you with the support you need to make sure you get the most out of the sites.

Don’t forget to visit our Facebook Group full of other like minded users also available to offer tips and advice. I will also be running a challenge throughout the month of June to encourage members to increase their earnings by £50 this coming month.

    Thanks for this information – when trying to sign up for InstaGC it looks like you can only redeem points for gift cards – is there an option for PayPal once you log in?

    • Yes, once you have cashed out 500 points in giftcards, Paypal and Mastercard open up. It doesn’t have to be 500 points at once, you could cash out £1 a time to amazon for example until you have reached 500 points ($50, about £38) if you wanted
