Your myLot money: the least and the greatest usage to your life

Another Payout is already near and a lot of members are trying to earn more to get additional few cents to reach their minimums. I am not going to ask you how much you still need to reach your minimum or the amount you already have in your earnings if you are already reach it. I want to hear from you guys, about the money you have already received from mylot, how did you spend them? What have you bought with your mylot money? And if you still don't get your first payout, what are your plans of using it? If I can remember well, the least that I bought with my mylot earnings is toothpaste. Yes, maybe that's it. When I got my first payout, I went to the grocery and got some goodies for the house. That was just a little amount of money but, it helps. Since then, every money that I can get from spending my spare time with posting and sharing ideas on here, I always make sure to spend in wisely. There are lots of time you can call, cliff-hanging moments, the days in between paydays, that you can't find extra money to fill in the needs in the house. At least, the money in the bank, can easily be withdrawn from the ATM. The next thing I wish to do with my mylot money is to keep it longer in the bank and make it bigger so when the gas (LPG for cooking) run out, I have easy money to buy another cylinder. This one keeps its price higher, in almost every week.

I'm not too active here in myLot the past months so I just received payment twice. What I did with mine is I had to leave it on my PayPal account until I have accumulated at least $100 from my other money-earning sites. As soon as I withdrawed it, just in time, we had to buy a new hard drive for our PC. We like downloading large files, specifically movies.

Hi yuna. You have one good idea for your mylot money. If you can keep it in your Paypal account that long and make it to that amount, that's already a big money to spend for your computing needs. I actually thought of keeping it too, and save it for something like a laptop or just a netbook, but I think that's too far achieve, since in the cliff-hanging moments, it's only my little savings from here that helps in our household needs, in just the least that it can serve us.

Hello, I have not been to active, here on Mylot due to other obligations I have, so there fore I have not reached payout yet, but I'm very close, and what I plan on doing with my Mylot earnings is save them, that way I can rally see the income I made, just for working online, doing something I enjoy in the first place. Please don't get me wrong incase there is , something that I may need, I will have to go into my savings and pay for it, with my Mylot earnings, so I'm just hoping that I keep a little cash on hand. Happy My Lotting!

Hi onlinerep. Most members here have other things to do, like their jobs, office, so they are not always here to participate in the discussions, but there are really some that mylot is their only thing to do to spend their time. I don't see any wrong using our money from mylot to pay bills, as long as we use it wisely, in good things.

I received my first payout 2 years ago... and i remember only using it when i needed the money to buy something... i forgot what it is that i bought... but nowadays... most of my online earnings go to my eon card... which i then used to buy 2 plane tickets for a trip to Kota Kinabalu next year... and i am saving up the rest for the hotel accomodation and pocket money... home i can save enough though my online earning... mylot really helps... even though i don't reach payout every month...

hi aseretdd. i also don't reach payout every month, but when i do, i make sure it will go to good things. one thing i really wish to have is a laptop or even just a netbook. but i really can't make it, since it is too small and i still have to make use of it when there is a need of something in the house, and payday is not yet there. you must have a lot of money already, since you plan to go to Kota Kinabalu. maybe you have a lot of online business?

I can't remember what exactly I did with. I am sure I used it to buy something with.. But Then I didn't come back very often so this will be only my second payment I have been pretty active this month but have not reached the minimum. So with any luck I will have plenty next month when it is time to cash out. And I know this time it will be used to help pay bills.

Hi minx. You're not so active? Don't make it more than 3 months of being absent here, for I heard that mylot will forfeit any earnings we have in our account if we don't at least log-in even once in that period, I hope yours is still intact. Even if our earnings here is too little, there is always a use to our lives, like paying the bills.

Yes, I know- I would always check in every couple of months so I did not lose the few dollars I had in my account. But this past month is the first time I have been active the entire month. Since about 6 months or more ago. But I am finding it quite fun and have even gotten a couple of days I have earned about $.40. So I am off to a good start for next month. :)

Hello Neil, I guess i don't need to elaborate here,coz,till now i haven't tried to withdraw any of my earnings,could be here in mylot or any other paying sites that had paid me already. Maybe,i want a bigger amount,so to speak,the reason why i am still keeping my earnings. Good to know that you are spending your money/extra income wisely,and good to know also that this online earning really helps you a lot. I admire you my friend,keep it up...

Hi jaiho. So you really have other ventures aside from mylot? Well, at least you can do more than just mylotting. What makes me active here on mylot is the free time that I can get from work. And I can only log-in using office desktop when the modem and router had been turned on by our boss. I can't just go turn it on by myself and go online. And even I can use my mobile phone when I cannot use the desktop or no internet, this phone can only give me limited productivity, you know the differences with screen alone and the keyboard, they are too tiny. This is hard-earned money for me, so even if I need more things personally, I still think more times to spend this wisely.

I can see how life gets to be tough when you have a family. Since i am single, i just pile it up on paypal. I am still not sure of what to do with it.. I am planning to just save it and later purchase a debit card. Though interest will rise if my money will reach the $500 amount. So i am not so sure with this. I tried to purchase a 150 globe load for $6. It is twice the price here in our country if you're going to convert it. But i just tried it and am i glad it works! I'm trying to reimburse the money i spent on pixprofit.

hi koala. being a family man is really tough, specially when you have less income than your needs. sad to say, but i am one. but at least, i still have income compared to some people who are really struggling just to look for food to feed their loved ones. good for you, you are still single and you don't think much about money and spending. you only think about your personal needs. in my case, personal needs come in last in the budget, sad again but that is true. i even wanted to get a new belt or at least an under-shirt, but gosh, i will just buy my son first his milk. i never tried buying anything online and i really find them too expensive. just like that globe load, gosh. and what's that pixprofit? can you give me an idea about that?

Oh I've for long time not consistently reaching the payout. But this payout I am happy I can receive payment because I've got good earnings from 2 tasks I performed for Sharon Bucks. I wish I have so much time because her tasks are worth $4 each and of course that is attractive enough. But my spare time is just too limited because I have regular job. During my spare time , I am also writing for Reviewstream which also pays good amount so my spare time is divided between reviewstream and mylot. Well from these sites, all my money goes direct to my debit card and I use them as additional shopping money. The money from mylot may not be as big as that of the earnings I am getting from reviewstream but I am happy with it already.

hi salonga. now i know, that aside from the regular job you have, you are also busy with reviewstream. i am jealous. lol with my paypal money, i actually have two options, or i have two banks that i can transfer. i have this landbank which i can also use for shopping. landbank as a member of express net, is accepted in some establishments as a debit card. i also have a unionbank debit card (this one is not the same as eon card) which was issued by gsis. i can use both or any of these to pay for groceries and other stuff (of course, i have to put in some cash first ).

I have been paid only once and I cherished that money as my online earning ever. Recently lost part of it in a scam and have no intention to use it sooner. First I'll need to link it with my bank account which means I'll have to open an account LOL ...Or maybe I'll gift my sister a new dvd player after my third payment

I have only reached payout here in mylot twice because I have been busy with work so most of the days I just get to post 2 or 3 comments. I do not have the time to look for interesting topics that I can make comments to. I would just respond to the ones that I can see on the home page. I used my first payout to invest in a supposedly money making site that didn't work so well, then I used the 2nd one to invest in referrals in neobux, at least I know that neobux is a legit site so I am happy with my investment. I am still far from my third payout, though I am hoping that I will be able to reach it soon. I don't intend to withdraw it immediately, I want to save it until it's big enough so actually make a difference in my budget

Well, as you can tell from my Posting numbers, I have been able to reach payout here many times, so I have been able to spend my earnings here in a lot of various ways as well. Some of them were for Small menial things, while other times I let it sit in my Paypal account to buy something better as well. The last purchase I helped make with the earnings from myLot was a New printer/scanner/copier. My other one never wanted to work right, so I figured I would let myLot help me buy one. But I have also gotten small things for the house, and last Christmas bought my husband a pair of Dress shoes for church, and saving up to buy my husband his Christmas gift thru myLot as well. All I can say is no matter how big or small it tends to be the extra little bit of money is a Big help for sure.

Yes, I can see that but I can't tell how much you already got. And I know I should not be wondering about it. lol But wow, you really got it grow big as what you've said, a printer, and that's a little expensive. How can someone from out of mylot say, that mylot really pays, if they will not join us. Mylot has been helping us and we really have to be thankful, we found this great site. I thought of saving mine, a little bigger, I really wished I can, so when it is, I can buy my own laptop. Do you think I can make it, without my own system? I can only go online in the office but internet is available in limited time only, and with more busy days, I can't do it because work duties should come first.

My ideal is a payout of about 100 dollars. It will be in US dollars and that is about 600 Trinidad dollars and that's a good sum of money to have in Trinidad. It will take a long time, of course, but its a worthy objective. I wish somebody would give me some real advice on how to increase my earnings on mylot. I love the site and find it very interesting but have no real advice on how to capitalise properly.

I have yet to earn with Mylot, I hope I do so Im not wasting my time, but if you put the time into this you could easily make the 100 or more a month, which isent bad for say to pay a bill or something. Its hard to find things online now a days that work and work well continuously, lets just hope they (meaning mylot) continue to stay in biz and raise the amount to like 500 or so and let it be done :) cant beat learning and sharing and getting paid for it, lets see if this works :)

Hi neil, I'm glad you're finding your earnings here help out with extra necessities. I freely admit to signing up here with one intent, to pay my annual car tax bill which will be due next month, and I wanted to see if I could do that, though actually I don't know what the bill will be as last year it went up 40% so who knows how much more it will be this year. Then I'll also have to convert dollars down into Euros which means it is worth a lot less as the Euro is too high. However when the bill is paid, I expect from the earnings here, I'll still be around as have had fun doing it and it's always more satisfying to pay a nasty bill with money earned through fun. Now there's just that little matter of a sudden EXTRA electric bill they've just invented which means I'm now going to have to type through another 60 Euros worth of fun. That's a lot of dollars and it's due next week.

Hi thea. First of all, I found this discussion a little bit of a problem to me. There is still no internet connection in our office at this moment. Our boss is out so her office is closed, so there's no way we can ask for the secretary to turn on the modem and the router. We can't do any online transactions with our computer. The good thing there is I still have internet with my mobile phone. So I am now posting from my phone. What will I do is to type my message from the computer's notepad. With the notepad, I can type all that I want to say, without having difficulty in the size of the monitor and the keypad. When I am done, I will save the notepad, plug my phone in the computer's USB slot, and copy the notepad message to my phone. Then I log-in again to mylot with my phone, and paste the message to the response/comment box. Some kinda long process but I love to do it, when computer is not able to connect me. Now back to the topic. So far, all my mylot money goes to all that necessities. There is actually no personal items, as I can remember, that I bought for myself. Though I really have a thought of saving it for once it grows, I buy myself a laptop. But no, that cannot be. At this moment, I should be contented with my office desktop and my mobile phone. With the conversion of the dollar into our currency, we have one of the cheapest currency, One dollar is only about 46 in Philippine Pesos. So if I really have to spend my earnings in for our gas, I should be earnings more than 10 monthly. An eleven kilogram LPG tank is worth about 600Php which is about $13. I actually thought of setting my minimum higher, so if I really want something big, I can save it and use it, like I said, a laptop. But it's not worth to think about it this time. But still, mylot helps most of us, to earn money, or could we say, pay for our bills?

Hi Neil. I just read yesterday that the larger companies are beginning to hire again so I'm hoping that is a sign that our world-wide recession is turning around. Hopefully, your gas will begin to cost LESS each weak instead of more. We use gas for our hot water. One tank (25 gallon) costs about $70.00 right now. I'd hate to run out of gas with no money for more because that means no hot water. I've taken baths by heating water on the stove before and it's no fun! Let's see. What have I bought with the money I've earned here? I think that the very first thing I bought when I first joined myLot was flower seeds from a nursery. Gardening is probably my greatest love and the more types of flowers I have growing, the happier I am every Spring. I've just finished harvesting all the seeds from the flowers I do have for next year (also to sell some and give some away) and I always think of more flowers I'd like in my garden once harvesting the seeds is over. I have one flower in mind right now that I'd like to buy so I'll probably be doing that with the money I've made here. My money has gone to emergencies, like when my husband first got his new job and couldn't afford the gas to get to and from work before his first paycheck. I let him use my Paypal debit card for gas. I've used it to pay the co-pay for doctor's visits and, once, used it to pay for a prescription medication that I needed. It is definitely a godsend! Right now, I'm debating over whether I should buy this new flower that I want. It is a very pretty and kind of rare coneflower that I think would look so very pretty in my garden. It costs about $13.00 for just one flower, so I'm having trouble just going ahead and buying it because that's $13.00 that could be used for emergencies. Since I STILL have not heard anything from Social Security, I tend to hold onto whatever money I have. Isn't myLot wonderful? Before I found it and joined, I would not have had a problem deciding whether or not to buy this flower. I would not have done it, period. Now that I have this extra money, I'm worrying whether or not to spend it on a flower. I THINK that's a good thing.

Hi Marti. That's good news if the world-wide recession is completely over. And with the gas price, I hope it will go down. But I heard in last night's news reports, that when this president of ours ordered a roll-back of prices in the capital, our gas prices here in the south went up again. They seem to take the advantage here from their loses in the capital. So people, mostly the public utility drivers complain again about their fuel. And that's what I am afraid to see when our tank gets empty. I know this will come very soon. We use gas for cooking, almost everyday. We only skip using gas even if there's still in the tank if we have something to cook that needs more time to get tender or something, like pork meat. An 11 kilogram tank cost about 600 pesos (about 13 in US dollars) which we can use for about a month and two weeks. My minimum earnings of 10 here on mylot is less than the amount I needed to pay for the gas, so I really have to do more, if I really want mylot to pay for our gas. Yes, I know about your love to gardening. I read more about your gardening discussions but you know me, I really don't response to discussions that I can't give an idea or I can't relate with, so I could not give my comments to some of them. But I love gardening too, as my wife have a lot of flowering plants all over the yard. I just seldom read or response to discussions in this interest. What interests me most is computers. And that's what actually I wish to have in the future. When I joined mylot, I don't have this great interest to have my own computer. And when I see the help of mylot in our lives, I really think I should buy one. I thought I can save my mylot earnings in my Paypal or in my bank account, wait till it gets big, and use it when it can already pay for at least a laptop or a netbook. But no, I can't save them and let grow. I should get it once it's there in Paypal, have it transfer to my bank account, wait for at least 4 days, and withdraw. And then we go to grocery or the market to buy some necessities. And that's how my mylot earnings roll over. But yes, you are right, mylot is really wonderful. Some times I also think a lot of times if I really have to save the money in the bank or not. But mostly, I really have to withdraw. And I can't let if grow there. I should, before we all get hungry.

hi EnglishTeaDuck. It's good to hear that you already reached your minimum. Payout or payment will be made on or before the 15th of the following month, so you will be expecting your first by then. You must be a good credit card user, so keep it up. Try not to fail in paying your dues that will bring you to bad standing. I have 2 cards before, but due to some unpredictable situation, i failed to pay them. now these collecting agents keep calling me and ask me to pay, but i have nothing to pay them. i wish to pay but i really have nothing.

Hi SouStalker. Welcome to mylot. I also told yuna that I thought of saving mine so I can buy myself even a netbook. But since I work alone for the family, and I don't receive much from my regular job, my money that I can get from here is usually used to fill-in the lack of money for household needs. Of course this is not much though, but it serves the best that I can with this hard earned money. I wish you luck with your stay on here and hope you achieve your goal, with a new laptop?
