When i get the 10 $ then it would be around 7,50 to 8,00 Euro (Germany, Europe), therefore i could - buy one pizza and a coke in a restaurant or - watch 2 cinema-movies in the early afternoon - buy one of the McValue-Meals and a McSundae Icecream at McDonalds - go 3x to the swimming club's pool - buy 7 liters gasoline at the petrol station - save the money and would get 5% interest per year (0,40 Euro) - 3 - 4 slices of cake What can you buy with the 10$ payout? I appreciate your responses!

Well here in the Philippines you could probly get yourself a new shirt, or 10 liter of gasoline, or 3 movie tickets. or pay 1/3 of your internet bill. I'd probably get a new shirt with my first payout. Keep the posts coming!!! Thanks... :)

Good morning burnek, somebody said you can buy six shirts in the Philippines, so i guess your shirt would be already a branded shirt? Is your Internet bill so high? In comparison to the german one it would be probably 50% of the internet with cheapest Flatrate -24 hours, 7 day online-, the highspeed-flatrate would cover just 20% of the myLot earnings. Sometimes discussions should be easy so everyone can respond and earn 1 or 2 cent for their post. Have a good start into this week!

7%? where is that? I am paying 7% for loans right now! gee- 7% for investment would be great! 10 bucks for two liters is high, 10 bucks would buy me 6.7 gal (US) which is more than 25 liters!

Hello Balacancer22, you mean buying the pizza with coke and additional 2 litres petrol or do you mean buying only 2 litres petrol with the 10 $. Would be really a high price for the petrol when you pay 5 $ for it. The interest rate of 7% is this in India or a special bank from a foreign country who offers this interest rate? Have a nice day and keep on earning :-)

Well, I'm here in the Philippines and ten dollars would roughly be about four hundred ninety pesos locally. With this amount, I personally will be able to purchase one of the following items or services: 1. one or two Goldilocks roll cake 2. shirt 3. one box pizza 4. four to five Value meals from Jollibee 5. a gallon of ice cream 6. one or two prepaid call and text cards 7. get my hair relaxed on a fancy salon 8. fx transportation fares for ten days (personally) I guess this list will have to do for now but I really do intend to use my earnings from mylot to pay a portion of the outstanding loans we have.

Hello mykmari_08, when i read your list it seems like you enjoy eating ;-) What are the "fx transportation fares" in Philippines? It's a good idea to reduce your debt in these times, you save some of the interests by paying them earlier and can start saving your money in the future after the debt is paid down. Good luck in earning more in myLot and thanks for your response!

I guess you don't have these in your area. But locally, these Fx's look like a car and van rolled into one. Like buses, they are also one of the modes of public transportation here in our country.

Hi mykmari_08, perhaps you could post me a picture of such a FX. At the moment i have no idea how this vehicle looks like. I believe it would be also informative for the other members who are from other countries. Have a nice day and keep on posting!

Hello octavian, seems like Romania has now nearly the price standard from Germany when you can buy almost the same :-) The interest is quite ok when you see how low the interest rate of the ECB is now (between 2 and 3 %). Romania has actually a higher interest rate?? Have a nice weekend and good discussions in myLot!

hello kunking, when i understand you correctly, you say in big cities 10$ are less worth in china than in the smaller cities or towns. I read now from some other chinese persons that some can buy many things and others really only some little things or can not join the movies so often. Seems there are big differences inside of China and the value of the money! Have a good day and lots of earnings with myLot!

Well here $10 does not go as far. A movie and a small, very small pop, 9 things on a dollar menu at a fast food restaurant, there is tax too, a couple items of clothing usually on the clearance rack or at an under 10 dollar store, 9 items at a dollar store here we have the tax again. If you're really lucky some cool stuff on Ebay.

$10 is a lot when you're counting every penny. There were times I had $1 and had to choose between bread or a bus ticket. Today, my priority is still food. You can buy 2 loafs of bread, 12 eggs,500gr cold cuts and around 200gr of cheese. Enough to eat for 2 days. Or at today's gas cost, I can fill 14 litres in my car. Or go to the movies and buy a small popcorn.

Hello ladynetz, i think when we don't count every penny then we have already enough money. And in this time in the coming months everybody will begin to count and count again, how much they can get from somewhere else. Hope there will be no extreme run for the food you want to buy in the next times. Have a nice day, a good weekend and Merry Christmas!

Great thread you got going here cornyman! Let's see what can I buy... Well I'm here in the U.S. and here are a few things that I can get for $10 IF I spend it verrry resourcefully - about 3 dozen of Ramen Noodles - 2 McDonalds combos - 2 frozen pizzas - 15 hot wings, fries & drink from Winkstop w/coupon - A used big screen TV, a Fax, or a Used Computer for $1 a the $1 Goodwill - About a half tank of gas These are just a few things! If you shop smart and in the right places, and use coupons & rebates -- You can make $10 strrretch in any country ~ Even the U.S. (but of course it's more of a challenge here!)

Whenver I get the 10$ then it would be Rs.500 in India, then I will definitely buy a game for my child. In this way I would remember that from mylot I bought a gift for my child which also gives happiness to my child. Nothing is greater than my childs smile.

Well, you can do a lot more than I can! I can't watch a movie with it. I can buy a small meal at McDonals or something, but that's about it. Lately I have decided to put my internet "earnings" into my sharebuilder account and by stocks with it. I figure it's free money so it doesn't matter if I lose it :)

Hello reinydawn, i believe there are more possibilities in your country, too. After i read here the other possibilities i think i can buy also some cheep shirts or trousers for the payout-amount of 10$. Which shares are you actually buying in your sharebuilder account? This answer would be interesting for me to know! Have a great time in myLot and good luck for 2009!

I have been buying Ford, Nissan, GM (my husband wanted that one, not me), Nordstroms (my best one so far), Dell, Kodak, and a few others that I just wanted to see what would happen with. It's still going down, so I'm still going to buy. I look at the 5 year history as well as do a little checking up on the company. We shall see what happens!

Hello rusty2rusty, how do you manage to get more than 10 dollars a month, some referrals who back your monthly payout ;-)? Sales are great for that amount of money we earn online. Especially when you can sell these things again on ebay for nearly the usual price :-) Have a great time in myLot and Happy New Year!

I do have referrals. But none are making me any kind of money. One I might make 1 or 2 cents a day. I will post a few discussions. I try and respond to all with three or four sentences response. I rate all who respond with a "+". Sometimes I add pictures to my discussions. I answer roughly about 30 discussions a day. (sometimes I don't thou)Good luck in making money on MyLot.

Hello alyciassecret, i think now it depends on the person and how much the members in myLot are earning in the real life, if the 10 $ are much money or if it just a small matter . Some other members wrote that they would go to the One-Dollar-Stores and buy ten items . Most of the Americans would buy gasoline, food or clothes. I guess there are also some more things that you could buy for 10 Dollars Have a great time in myLot!
