    If you do the 2 surveys offered each day you can get $1.50 for them both. Now that is what adds up.

    It's amazing how much you save by never spending your change. I pay with bills and save all the change in a jar. Last year we saved enough for our park tickets. Also, we have a Keep the Change program at our bank. Every time you use your debit card it rounds up. It adds up quickly if you use your debit card a lot.

    My kids save any and all change that they find. My wife and I also put all the spare change into their little bank. So far, they have saved almost $600 in 3 years!

    One of my close friends lives out of town and sent the girls Disney gift cards for Christmas to use on our trip! What a cool idea!

    There are 2 types you can take. The daily survey in the earn daily dropdown is run through greenfield (its 80 cents) and the paid offer (in the offers dropdown) called my thoughts count which is a survey run through OTX (its 75 cents). You can take one of each a day. Also make sure to say hi on the forums over there and we can direct you to what you can do to increase your balance.

    My daughter gets an allowance equivilant to her age (she's 8). She gets to keep $5 and the other three goes to her own Disney fund. $3 a week adds up! We've actually been doing this since she was six. When we went to Disney last year (she was 7) she had $150 saved up just for her! A couple of people gave her Disney Dollars for her birthday and Christmas so that helped as well. She actually came home with $33!

    We also do the jar thing. This year, my mom's offered to pay for the hotel as long as I buy the tickets. We're trying for 10 days this year. Wish us luck.

    I just got my tax return today and it's a poopload of money. A good bit will go towards our Disney trip. That and the rebate check we get soon. That's the only way I can make the trip. Thank goodness for EIC and the IRS! Bet they never hear that!

    As soon as I can make my way to a Disney store, I'm buying the tickets. We also turn the loose change we save into cash and then take it and buy Disney Dollars or put it on a Disney gift card. You can use the gift cards in the park wherever they take credit cards. That prevents me from spending it on things other than Disney.

    We actually came home last year with $400 leftover from our vacation. We're off to a good start so far!

    I have 2 rewards sites I use for both my shopping and I take surveys and do offers. I make about 80-100 on each of these per month when I put real effort into in. I can cash out in Disney Dollars and disney gift cards which is great because then I can't spend it on other things. We are going again in Sept and our trip is already about 70 % paid for, food tickets and hotel.

    I'm signing up for Sunshine Rewards and it asks me for an ID of someone referring me so they can get credit. Anyone want to tell me one?

    Also, what is the rewards site that starts with Q?

    I'll take the bonus if no one else wants it! I'm under dmcintosh3 I believe. I haven't been back there since vacation. I still use a high interest internet savings account for all of my extra money. I use Ingdirect but I know HSBC offers one as well. If anyone decides to try it let me know. If you make a large enough deposit I get $25!

    Sorry, tried that and it didn't work-says it has to be your referral number not your email.

    Any others?
