Top Ten Websites
Advantages: Good to pass the time
Disadvantages: Spending too much time perusing!!
I have just finished reading through a few Top Ten Wesbite reviews written by fellow Dooyooers and have discovered some sites i didn't previously know about and will be checking them out as soon as this review is written!
So, in the hope that I will tempt a few readers to check out some of my favourite websites, here goes...
Quidco is a cashback site which I discovered approximately 2 months ago thanks to the wesbite Money Savings Expert. Once you are a registered member of Quidco, you will receive cashback when buying items via the website. For me, the draw is the money you can earn without having to make a purchase. For example, some comparism sites will pay £1-£2 for each quote, for say car insurance, which you obtain through them. There is of course no obligation to take the insurance policy out.
2. Bingo sites - Mecca, Sun, Gala, Paddy Power
When registering on these online bingo sites via Quidco, it is possible to gain more cashback than the amount you pay to open the account. And, each site matches your initial stake. You then of course have the added bonus of possibly winning whilst playing bingo - which I did, yay! ;-)
Facebook is a social networking site and is fantastic for catching up with pals. Through Facebook I have met up with five or so old school friends who I lost touch with over the years. What can be better than that! And Facebook is free too, not like Friends Reunited, which was the first big (that I know of) website of its kind.
5. Online banking
I check my online banking every single day and haven't got a clue how I ever got by without it! Transferring money is so easy and becasue of that I find that transferring money into my savings account is easy too. Result!
I'm addicted!! In my opinion Rightmove is the best site for perusing what property is for sale and rent. You can also find details of previous house prices, estate agents, holiday lets and property for sale abroad. I wont be looking to purchase a house for at least a year but find Rightmove is great for research in readiness!
7. BBC News
Does what is says on the tin! I visit BBC news at least once a day to keep up to date wth local, UK and foreign news.
8. BBC Weather
As above but to check the weather! Although saying that, I checked it on Friday and it said only rain for my area but it snowed for hours instead!!
9. Skype. Does that count??
I lov Skype becasue my other half works abroad and we can chat away on Skype for free in a instant messenger capacity. Calls are cheap too, even when callng abroad.
10. Money Savings Expert
Absolutely essential for all money saving questions, tips etc. I spend so much time on so many great websites thanks to MSE!
Summary: The sites I spend too much of my free time browsing!
