We highly recommend the cashback schemes Quidco and Top Cashback

Lottery competitions

As well as the UK Lotto National Lottery, you can increase your chances of winning some cash by trying one of the many online lotteries. The online UK schemes are free to try with your favourite lucky numbers - and your chance to win happens in return for clicking on an advertising link, so there's nothing to lose!

Review sites

Get paid for writing reviews, and for when they're read.

Other competitions

Sites that offer links to other site with cash prizes.


Make money by completing questionnaires. Try some of the following:

  • Ask GfK - Formerly - Yet to see any results
  • Consumerlink - Entry into prize draws (does anyone ever win?)
  • You Gov political polls (paid per survey)
  • MyVoice - Log in for new polls. Slow earner


If you have a website, make money from it - this does actually work! Cash for clickthroughs or referrals. Use companies like Commission Junction, Tradedoubler and Affiliate Window to put some big names and big earners on your site. Check out details of UK affiliate schemes.
