I’ve just heard about YouGov Finance from YouGov. YouGov is one of the best ways to earn extra cash online. It’s safe and reliable and once you earn 5000 points, you can withdraw £50 straight into your bank account.

YouGov Safe is an extension of YouGov surveys. It is a Chrome extension which allows you to earn points by sharing data from some of your online accounts such as Netflix, Disney+, Amazon and more.
Now, YouGov Finance is what this post is all about – so what is it?

So if you are happy for YouGov to snoop through your bank transactions for marketing purposes, this is for you!
How many points can I earn?
You can earn 500 points per bank account and 100 points per savings account.
The blow screenshot is how many points I got after adding my Monzo. This was from my current accounts and my Monzo pots which count as a savings account. I earnt a massive 1300 points which is the equivalent of £13.
How often can I get points?
The connection stays active for 90 days, then you can refresh the connection to earn points again.
How does YouGov Finance use this data?
Your data will be used by YouGov Finance to generate aggregated and anonymous research, which forms an integral part of the transaction data products offered to their clients.
Can I add more than one bank account to YouGov Finance?
Yes, you can add more than one account – the more accounts you add, the more points you get! The accounts must be active. I have a few accounts that I’ve opened due to getting sign-up offers but never actually used and I didn’t get any points for these. When I added them, it came up with ‘not enough data’
