What do you spend your MyLot $$ on? I'm saving for Disneyland! Can I do it?

I was curious as I learn about other people's MyLot goals. A lot of us obviously are interrested in the money aspect.. . but why? How many of you do MyLot as your primary income? How many for fun? What do you use or plan to use the money for? I do PTCs, Surveys and MyLot to save up and hopefully take the family to Disneyland! Think I can do it?! (You're all welcome to join any of my PTC downline to help and make a few extra $$ for yourself in the process! :*) ) I just thought it might be interresting to see what our desires are for the money we get while learning about each other! Happy Lotting! Bear

I'm just exploring the possibility of earning money online for now. If it doesn't work out well, I think I will just fall back to real life career. For now, I just save whatever I earn to buy domains to set up my websites.

I'm over $10 now for payout. Will the payout be just the $10, or whatever I have in my account when MyLot cuts the check? Does anyone know? This will be my first payout.

Wow, you are active which is great. I hope you are able to save enough for Disneyland. That should be great. I'm here and on other sites just trying make some extra cash. No set desire/goal for the money. Good luck.

Just think of it as a vitual jar that your putting you change into building up to go to disney land. I have known several people who done it this way and went to disney! My kids are too young yet to go to disney land but when they get older I will start saving so they can enjoy that and me too. I have not ever been!

My MyLot income is spent on necessary dibs and dabs. * My small fixed income fails to stretch far enough to purchase tiny luxuries such as blank CD's, DVD's, (my computer can act as a VCR) for TV programs and radio music. For another example, if my computer needs something like a DVD disk drive cleaner that costs $3, or perhaps a new optical mouse $20, I will dip into my MyLot earnings. * My main income is there only to pay for basic needs such as food, rent, utilities such as heat, and food. I cannot spend as much time on MyLot as I would enjoy as my health gets in the way. I've a pain condition that can leave me flat on my back for days to weeks at a time.

I started out leaving it in Pay Pal, because at that time the interest there was better than the bank. In the past I have paid a bill or two. This year I bought some things online with it, because to me it fees really secure using Pay Pal. Now I am trying to earn with freelance writing mostly, and MyLot is my other sure deal. If I find I need it, I will move it to the bank, and whatever I earn here is what I have for "extra" money.

I haven't bought very much with it because I am not active enough to make very much, plus, a troll attack many months ago reduced my star so low that my earning level is too low even with lots of activity. *sigh*

Well, I have an online subscription to a gaming site that costs 12.50 every month but the great thing about that site is that by playing the games I earn amazon gift cards which I in turn use for my Christmas shopping. However, I also have additional earnings that remain in my paypal account and I save that until I have $100 plus a one month cushion for the game and I transfer it to our checking account so that we can do something fun that we wouldn't ordinarily get to do. I've made it to the $100 mark one time so far and we spent it on a night at a hotel.

Well so far I've put all of my mylot earnings into my savings account because I'm trying to save up some money for when me and my girlfriend decide to move. That's what I try to do with most of my online earnings but I try to use some of my earnings to buy books or some video games or something. I think it's important to reward yourself for your work or else it will just keep on getting repetitive and boring.

I was planning to pay the internet bills. When I get my first payment.Haha. Reading all of your posts makes me feel that I am on the right site. Mylot is not one of those scammers. I also want to know more on how to earn bigger. While waiting for the time that I could get that money. I have to do a lot of mylotting and just have fun reading posts.

I enjoy mylotting so it doesnt feel like a job it feels like a homy site where I talk with friends who seem like I have known for years on end.

maybe I'll hold it in PayPal and then withdrawn for whatever the future. Because its value is still small and not meant for me to use. I have a dream to buy a home but maybe not yet because I had to gather up these dreams could come true later.

I think you could do it you would just have to find the right online jobs they are few and far between but they are out there search and search hard!

I generally just use my earnings, which I haven't earned any from mylot in a while due to Ihaven't been as active in the last year or so due to other things that have kept me busy. But I use it for things that I want to purchase on line. I just did accept your friend request tonight since I am trying to be a little bit more active now when I have the time to do so.

I like to see my earnings accumulate in my paypal bank. Once I have a substantial amount there I use it to purchase books or anything I fancy online.

Hi Bear I have been saving the money I earn for my 2 grad babies for when they grow up so they will have a head start in life when they get out of school.Maybe by the time I am done saving for them they might be able to get there selves a car or put a down payment on a home. I like learning new things on mylot and making new friends to. I am not just on here for the money. I like learning about what others have to say. Have a great day.

I am the same way do you have a upromise account for the grandbabies? It is a great way to earn free money for there college. There is all kinds of places and items that qualify for upromise! I know some ladys who use coupons and get alot in that account by spending very little and using coupons!!! It all helps in the long run I am going to start it up again and use it alot so that the kids will have a good start for college!

I have never heard of upromise account before. I need to ask my bank about that. I have been throwing all the money in to my piggy bank then when it gets full I give it to my mom to put in her safe for me for the grand babies. That would be a nice way to earn free money for them for college. Thank you for telling me.

Well, I'm saving for a family vacation in April. I hope that I can save enough for it cause it's really near, and I'm still a long way to go. Hehehehe. Anyway, I also do other sites, and I'm hoping to get more than 150usd in April.. But I'm not really sure if I can make it. I'm crossing my fingers... And I hope you would be able to save enough for the disneyland trip with your family.

I'm not really good at writing articles. I write but it's more of a personal thingy, and I can't seem to make an article look professional. hahaha. The editor in our school paper even said, that writing for the paper is really not my thing, I should write more for a fictional story or something. Heheh.

Wow, that is a nice way to spend your hard earned myLot earnings. Im sure you're going to have fun when that goal becomes reality. I just wish I could do the same thing. Im saving up my myLot earnings as well as my other online earnings to help in my graduation finances. It's just the most expensive time in college and I wanna help my parents in my own little way, financially I mean. After graduation I sure can save up all my online earnings for myself.^_^ I cant wait when that happens!

That is very good of you. You should join upromise so you can earn on food you buy. I have a upromise for my kids and when I can get a good deal with a coupon on a upromise item say ends up being 11 cents I buy a bunch and I earn the full price towards the kids college fund I havent been lately but I am going to go back to using it! It is free and upromise covers alot of things even mcdonalds

Oh, upromise does sound like a very promising program. I was ready to join but the program is only available for people residing in the US. I didnt know about upromise before today. I didnt know that there's a program like this that existed. Thanks for the information and goodluck with your u"promise".^_^
