I really don't know what to think about it. I tend to work on the assumption that "If it looks too good to be true, then it probably is!" I ought to be promoting this thing like mad to make loads of money on it, but I can't say I feel that inclined to do so. Well the link to the site is below should you interested, and should you make loads of money then let me know!! I realise that this is probably the worst sales pitch in history, but never mind. Here's the link anyway:

In the meantime, I have a load of stock that I have paid for sitting at home. Time for a change of tack I think. In researching a new section for Extra Cash Review, I came across Ebid, another auction site. They do not charge anything at all to list with them. They do charge a small fee of 3% of the value if your item sells. Alternatively you can pay a fixed fee up front (£1.99 for 7 days, £6.99 for 30 days, £16.99 for 90 days or £49.99 for lifetime) to upgrade to Seller+ which means that you do not pay any further fees and you can have a gallery picture with your listing. I am thinking that I will try listing my current stock on Ebid as it will not cost me any money and also as there are fewer listings than on Ebay to compete with maybe my items stand a better chance of selling (perhaps?). The main down side is that there are far fewer potential buyers visiting Ebid than visiting Ebay. Worth a go though I think as it will not cost me any money - a key consideration at this point. If this batch sells then I will consider listing the next batch on Ebid as well. I will keep you all informed of progress!!

Due to the fact that the Blogrush widget that I placed on my sidebar has not been working and that I have had no response whatsoever to the e-mails that I have sent, I have decided to remove it from the Blog. I had hoped that it would bring some additional traffic, but if they can't be bothered to reply to e-mails then it will just have to go as it using up valuable space!

Valued Opinions offer a good range of surveys and they are fairly frequent (although I tend to get screened out of quite a few). They are fairly well rewarded (typically £1.00/£1.50, sometimes more, sometimes less) and they payout at £10.00. Lots of options for vouchers - many of the main high street stores included. No option to receive your rewards in cash unfortunately.
Join Valued Opinions.
GfK seem to run various consumer panels, but the one that I tend to do most surveys for is GfK What I Buy as these tend to be a bit more interesting. They are purely for prize draws though and there are much bigger prizes available than the £2 voucher that I won!

- Kendal Sheppard
- Michelle Obama the view
- Subaru brat
- Boeing tanker
- Gao tanker
All I need to do now is combine these elements into one website and the traffic will come! Could be a challenge. There are some intreguing ones further down the list such as at No. 53 "How to kill with a knife" and No. 54 "Why is this night different from all other nights"! And then there is No. 59 "Left tibia"! What does it all mean?!

- Do not use this method if you already have debt - whatever you pay in interest will be more than anything you gain in a high interest account, so you would actually gain more by paying off your debts first.
- Make sure you pay off your 0% card before the introductory period ends otherwise you will start paying interest, which defeats the object.
- Be aware that every application for a credit card leaves a trace on your credit history, so do not attempt this unless you are confident that you have a good credit rating. If you are rejected for your first application for a 0% card then do not immediately apply for another one. This will only damage your credit rating. It is best to leave it for several months (or longer) before trying again. If you are rejected again, then it is best to leave it altogether.
For more information and the latest on the best 0% credit cards visit the excellent Stoozing.com.

This week I had my first experience of mystery shopping. I'm not actually signed up with any mystery shopping companies, but I just received an e-mail from a company offering me £35 to phone 6 car insurance companies for a quote and then fill in online surveys about each. I don't know where they got my details from - perhaps best not to ask!! Anyway, I did the required task, although I had to split it over 2 days as it was quite time consuming. I managed NOT to buy any insurance despite each company insisting they had the best deal on the planet. I usually look for quotes on the internet so that I have time to look at all the details, so I had to force myself to listen to all the details as I have habit of switching off and not listening to sales people on the phone - something to do with a natural distrust of sales people!
Anyway, I manged to finish the task in time (there was a time limit) - just need to wait for the cheque to arrive now! Next task is to look into some more mystery shopping sites I think.
