Where do you spend your income from online activities?

India
September 11, 2009 3:32pm CST
Most of the mylot members consider their earnings from online activities as residual income. It implies that we have a regular source of income and the amount we earn from our online activities are our extra money. We plan our expenditure for hard earned money. Do you plan how to spend your online earnings too? Where do you spend all these online earnings? Do you buy some online items or just use them to celebrate with your spouse or other close ones? [I save my online earnings in a separate bank account and at the end of each year I buy something which I consider as my precious purchase. Whereas, my hubby spend all his online earnings in online purchases.]

Well, good luck and once you could earn some redeemable amount, come back here and let me know what you actually did with all your online money.. My good wishes would be with you. Yep, there are some sites which allow paypal to pay their fee. Why don't you get a debit card with visa... I think the Axis bank card is a Visa card, if you are from India. Visa cards works on linking paypal even though they are debit cards.

until now i have just $15 earned . $11 are from mylot and 4 from another program . But i will invest $5 in neobux , to buy reffs, and the rest of 10 , i`ll keep for the next month . From next month, i will not buy anything at all, and i`ll earn all my money . I`ll do just like you . I just hope that i will manage to earn something more than $100 . i also spend $4 / month , for hosting my own website, but i hope that soon , that site will bring me some cash too . Thouse 4$ are from my credit card, because the hosting site, didn`t accepted paypal .

Ok, you have a nice plan of action. For that what I can do is wish good luck so that your dreams come true. Let us know when you complete hoisting your website. I am not that good in website hoisting and wish to learn some trick..........

I invest my cash from here in revenue sharing sites and just kick back and watch it grow! It's nice to see $10 turn in to $50! tdemex
11 Sep 09
I am a bit sceptical about those kind of sites, How have you found the one you are on?? I doubt many people will be able to earn much on those sites through no fault of there own.

I am interested in learning more about the revenue sharing sites. Can you tell me the sites and how they work. What happens if I go away for a few days. Do I have to use the sites daily. Thank you!

Since being made redundant, I have only managed to find part-time work so my online earnings are essential at the moment! I am currently a bit behind with my TV licence payments and so I am planning to pay it entirely with online earnings. I also do surveys and reviews. And a bit of mystery shopping with isn't online as such. Online earnings are great for everyone though, as it is not really much bother to ramble away on sites like these.

You have a cause to spend and so if you are generating your online income for day to day expenses, it is well and good. Keep it up. I appreciate your consitency. Could you name the review site you are in? I am very fond of review writing and currently working with two sites....SR & RS. But earning from there is not that good and for that I am earning from another site for blogging.

It's called Dooyoo, British based I think but I am sure they allow international members. They pay 50 pence per review and 1.5p every time you are rated. £50 is minimum payout, but they seem trustworthy. Dooyoo.co.uk.

I keep my money in my paypal acct and use the money market part of it to save and earn. It keeps my every day money seperate from the rest of my money and I like seeing what I earn add up. Maybe one day I'll spend it, but I act like it's money that I don't have...

Well, I could read a lot of members saving for a later use. Most of them are doing so because of their small earnings. But, the idea of saving is great. You are very intelligent regarding saving your money.

Thanks triptibaby, I was using my money and sending it to my account that I use every day and trying to save that way, but paypal's money market account earns more than my regular savings. If I pay attention to it, I can put in more or take out less....they only require that you keep a dollar in the account!

For me, I am a digital scrapbooker and I've always felt guilty about spending the money that my husband works so hard to earn on pixels. So, I decided that I was going to start earning a little bit of money online that would go into our paypal account so I could occasionally buy a scrap kit with the money that is in our paypal without spending money out of our checking account. I can't wait until the beginning of October because one of my favorite sites is having a birthday party and I'll be able to get a ton of stuff for very little money.

I think your husband will look for a way to keep the money safe from you. Well, I have to guide him for a place where you can't put your hands or even gaze............

Unfortunately I have to do the same thing with my online earnings as I do with my SS check. . .pay bills. The online earnings just makes it a little easier.

Well, that is not bad. Savings for future expenditure has a different taste..... I would love to spend them now provided I have enough to save for the year.

I have only been paid once by a pay-to-search site. It was around 29pounds and instead of transferring the money to my local bank and pay some fees, I just let it stay on my Paypal. Now, I am super addicted to ebay. I am surfing ebay all day (and night) trying to find the best deals to spend the money I earned onto. It's not much money but there's no other place I know of which offers good deals so I'm sticking with ebay. Any other place you recommend?

Well, as you know english, there are ample scope for you to earn anywhere above 50 bucks a month. I am trying to increase my level abit higher, learning SEO from friends online and a lot of new things that are in an around the web. I don't know about the newer things that much but what paid me so far are really entertaining sites. Of course, I have my husband with me to assist me through and his earning from blogs are much higher than me..... need legit sites? send me a pm.... check it out and make your decision whether to join or not. Moreover, it is not that bad to earn about 50 cents for your one hour work, that too to write english words that makes sentences.........Rest of the times you will be back to mylot to discuss the new opportunities around.

i use my mylot money and the money i make selling stuff on ebay on christmas presents. i hope to buy some stuff on ebay for my two daughters for christmas.

Well, buying something for daughters is another good option though. I am expacting one by December last or January first. So, than I may have a similar way of investment.

I usually buy things like clothes, cds with the money I earn online. I would like to do the same as you though and have a new account where I can put all the money I earn online in there and just save it up. I probably earn about £50 a month online and that would really help as it would be £600 a year. There are a few husband and wife couples on the review sites I am on and one couple uses their earnings to put into an account for their baby for when they are older. I think that is something I would like to do when I have children.

That is a good idea, saving the earnings for children...... I think the amount will grow huge by the time children need them. Buying clothes online?

i haven't withdraw my earnings online yet, i just have applied an eon card recently because the bank that offers eon card has just open lately. and when i get my eon card after a week or two maybe that will be the time that i had to withdraw my money from it and i'm planning to save it until it will grow.

Hi tripibaby, I am relatively new to online activities, hence I haven't earned much yet. But as early as now I already have plans on what to do with it when it finally adds up to a considerable amount. I'm looking forward to spending the money for Christmas, maybe buy some toys or gadgets for my kids.

I have the habit that save money as I can. Right now, I don't have any money for pay or buy somethings. I'm a poor person right now. I don't go to work, I only study and I'm very shame when I take money from my parents. I have to try to earn money to contribute to my parents.

i usually end up spending my online earnings to supplement my regular income. times are hard now and we really do need to look for other sources of income to make ends meet.
• United States

I tend to do one of a few things with it. I either transfer it to my bank account and use it to make purchases like groceries or other items, such as something I may want and that may be online or in regular stores. Or, I'll transfer the money into a high yield savings account and just let it sit there and gather some extra cash. I'm trying to build up a savings account so I can have extra money just in case but sometimes I cave and buy things that I want.

My online earnings are saved until I have something special I want to use them for. I keep them in my paypal account until I know exactly what I want to do with it. I typically use these earnings to buy something for ME. Or to pay off my credit card because I've already bought something for myself and put it on there.

I make a comfortable full time income online through my multiple streams of income. I use the money to pay my monthly cost of living and I also save some if it. In the next 5 years I want to build a house without having to get a mortgage. So I work long hours 7 days per week. I like big money.
