Do you save up your myLot money for anything special?

April 12, 2012 6:41pm CST
Have any of you planned to/already saved up some money made here on myLot for a specific purpose (a clothing item, putting towards a debt, etc.)? I'd love to know what you all are working towards here or if it's just to have some fun on the boards and make a little extra spending/bill money here and there. Anyone already reach a specific goal they set in their early myLot days? Do tell! :)

I don't have idea at the moment what I'm going to do with my earnings here. Maybe I will save it for the future used. Either I will used it to buy some stuff online. Better now we can make a hotel reservation by the use of your Paypal account. I am not very active at the moment, that is why my earnings here is very low but by next month I will be active again so I am expecting to earn more here everyday. I am here just to connect my friends and participate to some of their discussions.

Awesome! Well I'm glad you're having fun here with friends and enjoying the discussion - it is quite fun, isn't it? Ooh I didn't know that about the hotel reservation with a PayPal account... great info, thanks!

Yeah I really enjoy doing lot if stuff here in myLot. I have huge number of friends whom I always followed and supoorted. In addition, the earnings I get from the site itself. All hotels connected with agoda will accept Paypal as mode of payment.

I usually keep earnings from online activities in PayPal because that's what I use if I ever need to pay for something online as well. Once it gets high enough that I know I won't need that much to pay for something, I'll put the balance in my savings. So I guess ultimately I'd like to just save up as much as I could...

I'm right there with you for now - just saving up as much as I can, and seeing where it takes me. Does PayPal take money for transferring to your bank account? I forget, as I've only used PayPal a few times and it was a long time ago.

Not to my bank account here, I'm not sure how it works in other countries. They used to have minimum amount I could transfer, but now I can transfer any amount at any time.

Christmas. I let it build up all year and then use it to buy the gifts for my four children. I may use some this year early though when we go west to see my cousin get married.

Hi abby, I never had anything specific to spend the money on...But I like another mylotters suggestion,,,I think I will just save it for Christmas shopping..... However I've only been here six months, so I have a long way to go.....lol
14 Apr 12
Hi! Yeah, saving the money for Christmas seems to be a common theme here, which is a really great idea, especially since we still have like 8 more months to go until the holidays and could probably save some good money before then! No worries, I've been here only a few days or like a week! Haha, you've done pretty well so far I'd say, with those 1046 posts!

Well sometimes I'll save my earnings and sometimes I don't it just depends on what I need or want by the time I recive my earnings But if I don't need or want anything right away I might wait to spend it and save like I said it just depends.

Nice, it's awesome that you've had the choice to save some earnings and spend some -judging by your number of posts you've been on here a while and have probably earned some good money. Congrats to you!

I am kind of new here but I like it so much, it's fun, enjoying and at the same time you are earning and learning by reading while commenting every discussions here so it's really interesting, Definitely I would save up the money from mylot for paying my bills.
14 Apr 12
I'm new here too! Welcome! :) I find it fun as well, and so far I haven't been doing too bad with the earning, it's slow but steady, you know? Paying your bills...ahh, very responsible, I admire that! Hehe hopefully I will be able to have some restraint and save up money for bills as well!

I ever that i reach payout here in myLot i will save it. Let it be stuck in my paypal account and let me earn more here in mylot. What i planned is to buy a external hard drive which costs 40 to 100 dollars and i will use my online earnings to buy it online. If not, i will withdraw it to a bank account then use it for emergency use or to buy new clothing for myself. Maybe, if there are extra earnings that i will made, i want to invest it in any legit online earning sites so that it will increase.

Oooh you bring up a good point about turning back around and investing it in another method of online earning..very good point. I would definitely need to do more research, myself, as I don't currently know a whole lot about online earning sites and which ones earn you the most/are legit/etc. But it definitely interests me. I need an external hard drive too! I've been using my dad's and saving everything like twice a year but I know that's not enough because I use my computer every day for writing, work, etc.

Before, i used it to buy books online and the previous months i used to pay for my son's tuition...but this year i planned to save it all for December! (i got that idea from another mylotter )
14 Apr 12
That's awesome that you could pay off some tuition of his with this! You go! :) Oooh definitely saving it up for December would be a really good decision - I have a huge family so I have a lot of gifts to buy and stuff! Would you cash in at the $10 minimum and save it somewhere/keep track of it in your bank or would you keep it here at mylot until December - I imagine the latter would be so tempting, watching it all add up! hehe

Not really-really specific, but I think I'm gonna spend most of them on bijou jewelry on ebay. They are so much cheaper and much more unique than the ones I can get at our places. Also, I may buy some CDs which I can't buy in my country and books which haven't been translated to Hungarian...
14 Apr 12
What is bijou jewelry? I guess I can just go to ebay and check it out though! :) Yes, nice little gifts here and there are also a good use of this money if it's side money to you.

I intend to save up my money here for rainy days. I won't want to spend it all at once, because it is my hard earned money. I dedicated my time and my idea to work on mylot and other websites to make that money possible. I hope that I can save them little by little, whatever useful purpose that could be for the future.
12 Apr 12
Well, at 6745 posts I'd say you definitely earned your money! :) Good on you for saving it up. Rainy day funds are definitely something we should all have!

i haven't earned anything yet, but it will probably be used for my cloth diaper & yarn addiction.
