Join us for Day #10 of the 20 Day Budget Bootcamp!

Today’s Topics: How To Save On Entertainment & Where to get Extra Money for a Date Night

I’m going to start with a list of ways to find some free or cheap activities that you can choose to do instead of forking out $50 for a family to see the movies (plus another $20 for the ridiculously priced popcorn!)

1.  Become a tourist of your own city and do research on free parks and museums.

2.  If you have an amusement park near by that you love – consider getting a seasonal pass.

3.  Look for entertainment coupons in an Entertainment book or look for deals on Groupon!

4.  Be willing to host dinners and events at your house.

5.  Get rid of cable and start using streaming services like Netflix, Pureflix, or stream movies & tv shows through Amazon Prime.

You can also just earn some extra cash online to pay for whatever entertainment activity you are looking to do.

Do you want some extra spending money so you can go out for a nice dinner and movie and not worry about going over budget?  You can if you are willing to fill out some surveys online!  Here is a list of survey companies looking for new participants right now:

Minds Pay

Nielson Home Scan Consumer Panel

Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost Moblie

Pinecone Research

Send Earnings

Unique Rewards

Valued Opinions

Vindale Research

What you do is set up an account, and you can fill out surveys on their site, or they will e-mail you when opportunities come up to fill out a survey.  Some of them will take you 5 minutes, others up to a half hour.  You GET PAID for filling out these surveys!  Some you will make $5, others up to $75!  Companies gather this information so that they know how consumers think about certain products.  They change food labels or advertising or shelf placement on store shelves based on the answers we give.  They do sometimes look for a specific age group or location demographic, so you have to qualify for what they are looking for in order to complete the survey and get paid.

They have these survey companies in malls too.  I know I’ve gone to my mall and taken a survey, and got like $10 cash so then my lunch was paid for that day.  🙂

I have not worked with all of these companies, but I have with a few.  One of my favorites was Opinion Outpost because I qualified for the most surveys, and they payout at a minimum of $5 and sent the checks quickly!  Opinion Outpost now has a mobile version so you can fill out surveys when you are in the waiting room.  Great way to use up that “wasted” time.  Get some extra cash and treat yourself for a night out!
 What about you?  Do you have tips you want to share on how you save for entertainment?  Come and tell us about it in our Budget Challenge Facebook Group!
