$10 payout, what would you do with it?

United States

I am here for discussion, but I know many of you are here to earn money. I am curious, since we are all from different parts of the world, what would receiving a $10 payout mean to you? What could you spend it on? I could get my children each a 'happy meal' from McDonalds with $10.

I actually was wondering that too. Here in the United States, it doesn't go too far. But, I often wonder if it buys a lot more in other parts of the world.

Yes, in some other countries I wonder how far $10 would go... can't wait to hear everyone's responses.

According to some sources, $10, enough for shopping few stuffs unlike us we could just spend it for a food or clothes that are at the clearance area. I wish they'll increase us here ayt?

Cool! $10 is valuable enough here. You can buy a new pair of sandals, or buy a new shirts, credit for your mobile that will last about 2 weeks. About 2 lipsticks, 10 bottles of shampoo,3 pack of milks, and treat about 3persons at Mc. Donalds. Cheers!

I'd buy 9 double cheesburgers at McDonald's (5 or 6 different visits) and drink water. Even here in the United States, $10 can go pretty far if you're committed to making sure that your money lasts (or need to make it last). Of course, that money would definitely go farther in other countries - this is a great topic!

So true, LOL, I would like to see more people respond so I can have a better understanding as to what $10 means to those in other countries. :) I mean, I couldn't pay any bills or anything with this money, but I wonder if others could?

Let me get paid first and then I'll tell you..hehe! jokes apart, I would wait for it to become a lot more than $10 then buy something. And does Mylot pay only in dollars? If it is so then in India it would mean around 480 rupees..for which you could shop a little and treat friends too;)Right now I'm in the US so $10 works for me!

LOL, I'm new here and haven't gotten up to that amount yet either, but I'm sure I'll hold off getting the withdrawal, though every little bit helps this close to the Holidays.

I try to do that too, not spend it too quickly, let it add up for something bigger.

I am almost at the $10 payout and am hoping to reach $25 before the end of the month. With my $10 I plan on adding to my My Little Pony collection. Hopefully I will reach $25 and can buy a little more.

Ooooo, we have a small My Little Pony collection in my house also. How many do you have? My girls have 6 I believe, but they aren't nicely kept for a collection.

My 8 year old and I collect them togehter and so far we have just over 300, about 200 are the newer ones and the rest are originals from the 80's. My daughter has some that she plays with on one shelf and some of the more expensive and nicer ones are on another.

omg! I didn't know there were that many! holy cow! LOL! I think it's awesome that you guys have this little "hobby" together! I think it's neat that what we played with when younger is what our kids are wanting these days. Like the Care Bears, I was born in 1970 so I was just a tad bit to old to admit that I wanted them, LOL, so now that my girls want Care Bears, I'm in Heaven! Same thing with Strawberry Shortcake, Holly Hobby (tho they are way too different) and My Little Pony. Cabbage Patch dolls too, but they aren't "hot" like way back when, LOL! Oh, and let's not even start on the Star Wars! (my son is an absolute NUT, and if I wouldn't known in October what he would've wanted for Christmas (at-at) I would've gotten it then instead of *trying to* paying more than double for it now on ebay! ah, the entrepenurial spirit! LOL

The minimum wage here in US is currently $5.15 an hour. The average wage in 2005 (according to http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/COLA/AWI.html) was $36,952.94 a year.

Here in the Philippines, with the $10, I could buy 1 jag jeans or maybe 2 months supply of Pampers for my baby. Isn't that amazing? But $10 is still small, but it is ok since it is free money.

Here is USA $10 would be one week's worth of diapers, unless it's a newborn (they go through diapers quicker). I'm glad the $10 would be able to supply you with 2 months of diapers, that's great!

I would probably do one of the following: 1. Buy some CDs at Ebay cheap. 2. Use it to pay for my monthly hosting bill. 3. Save it up on my paypal account and request a check when I have 50$ or so in my account. 4. Try shopping at any other place that accepts paypal.

I'd just save it first. I might spend it to my home country so that the payout is worth it.

Can I ask you where your home country is and what you could do with $10 there? Or whatever amount you are saving towards.
• United States

Im just trying to stack money so $10 would be just more money added to my bank account. Though not a large amount every thing counts.

Well, i'm only here because i can earn money on the site! But only because i think it's a easy and fun way to earn the money, cause it's not many money i earn in here! I don't know what i will spend them on! They just go to my paypal account, and then i will maybe buy some clothes, or some CD's, when i have more money on my paypal account!

I would be able to buy two packs of diapers for my terminally ill mother, or maybe one of her 18 prescriptions that she is on. Im working hard to reach ten dollars, as we are flat broke, and church food does not come till the 23rd of this month
