One CANNY saver shared how she earned over £5,000 by completing surveys and using the cashback app.
Nalan Kaya began her quest to save money after finding herself unemployed and receiving General Credit.
The struggling 26-year-old said she was left “in a new city” without a “blanket in bed” before turning around financially.
Now, she shares her tips and tricks with her 2,000 Instagram followers from her @littlemissfreebiequeen account.
Nalan, from Coventry, admits she is “always frugal” but decides to test her frugality when times are tough.
NHS biomedical assistants rely on earning income and free gifts through survey sites and cashback apps, as well as redeeming receipts for points.
After managing to buy a blanket and heater for her room when she shared some rave reviews, Nalan was inspired to dig deeper into the world of thrift.
She told the Daily Mail: ‘I’ve always lived fairly frugal since I was young and have always loved the idea of being able to earn something for free.
“All of these apps have really helped me at a time when I was unemployed and on Universal Credit.
“I just moved to a new city, and I had nothing, I didn’t even have a blanket in my bed,” she recalls.
“All my apps help me buy food, clothes, and anything else I really need.”
The 26-year-old saver then started using survey sites and apps regularly to keep a steady cash flow in her bank account.
Nalan continues: “I have found some survey sites quite useful and have made £600 so far from a particular site where universities conduct studies for academic research and possibly takes one minute or more.
“Referrals are also a great way to earn money on sites.
“On one site I actually made around £250 in crypto that I sat around for a while and ended up with £1,500!”
She’s also made sure she has plenty of goodies from free samples and rewards, including restaurant meals, toilet paper, perfume, and hygiene products.
Other giveaways include freebies like cleaning products, dog food, chocolates, crisps, pizza, and fresh fruit.
Now I’m looking forward to saving for my first home.
That means she can sometimes spend less than £30 a month on her shopping – thanks to online bonuses and purchases of food items with yellow stickers.
She beamed: “Now I’m looking forward to saving up to buy my first house.
“I can get up to 100% cash back on some foods I buy and sometimes I even make a profit on the food I buy because other apps will work in the background and record what I buy. spent.
“Literally, I spent two weeks getting free takeout and groceries from UberEATS and Deliveroo, because I’ve accumulated a ton of credits from referrals.
“I also have several receipt-scanning apps that allow me to redeem my points for Amazon vouchers.”
And she has even more money to play with after pouring her budget into beauty products.
“Buying beauty and hygiene products is something I don’t bother with anymore because I got lots of free samples from various websites and gift boxes from an app called ‘OOOOO’ where I received Get a free box of full-size beauty products I refer to the app every 5 of my friends,” explains Nalan.
“I haven’t had to buy skincare or hygiene products in over a year.
“An app called Yoppie also gives you referral credits and I have around £200 on it that I now use to buy organic tampons and tampons.”
The NHS biomedical assistant has earned more than £5,000 over three years and says it has given her financial freedom.
Nalan added: “Using the apps has helped me buy items for my family, who are also in financial difficulty but live abroad in Turkey.”
