Make sure your credit report is accurate and up to date
Your credit report summarises your credit history, and it’s what lenders look at when they size up your credit application.
So it’s important to make sure that the data and information on it is accurate and up-to-date, to give yourself the best chance of getting the deals you want – and at the rates you want. Missed or late payments, different ways of listing your name and address, financial links to other people can all have an impact. Getting it right could help you to understand, protect and improve your finances.

Hello I have hundreds of old Marvel comics, do you know the best way to sell them.
The best way to sell your Marvel Comics is by:
1. Holding a Carboot Sail
2. Have you considered selling them on Ebay/Amazon]
or 3. giving them to a local comics store/ (if there old) antiques
Hope it helps
Selling comics is very hard, it all depends on whether they are UK or US editions, the grade (condition) and overall collectability (first issue, key issue, first appearance of…etc)..I personally wouldnt try at carboots as your get a fraction of what theycould be worth…eBay is good, but you need to know about the comics to give good descriptions etc. If you need any further advice Im more than happy to help…you can give me an idea of what you have, I can guide you better.

On one of your TV morning show appearances you talked about using your car as advertising space for companies. Please supply details of how/who to contact for more info.
Hi Pamela. There are a couple of companies that do this. We mention them in this article https://www.moneymagpie.com/make-money/make-100-a-month-with-ads-on-your-car. It’s not easy to be accepted though. The companies have pretty strict ideas on what kind of car they want and how much driving you do. Still, it’s worth getting in touch with them!
Has anyone got any companies that need mystery shoppers as the ones on the internet want money to join? What’s all this about
One of the best mystery shoppers are retaileyes.com, get plenty of jobs but can sometimes go a bit quiet, may not make alot of money but you get to try products for free, just register its free, all they need is a account number & sort code, and nobody can take it and take money out just put money in
any ideas on money making for a full time mum, who doesn’t have babysitters so cant leave child to go and work or pay childminder/nursery, avon etc already in surrounding areas, i have no money to invest in anything, cant afford to pay to start up any sort of party night hosting ie virgin or body shop etc. Online surveys not enough money and not regular enough. Please help!
I think that being a childminder is a great way to make money while looking after your own child. Also, if you don’t mind the work, offering to take in ironing can be lucrative, although it depends where you live and how much money your neighbours have. If you want to make sensible money, though, and you have a computer then I would recommend learning about affiliate marketing and how to set up a specialist website. There are a lot of online resources (many of them dodgy so be careful) so you can learn online. It will take a few… Read more »

Find your local second hand shop. Look on the internet if you’re not sure. I’ve got some near me that sell books, CDs, clothes even. They give instant cash. Got stuff to sell? Try those kinds of places (although you might have to travel if there isn’t one in your town.
ow about not going to a club and spending money you haven’t got?
How about saving your money up for an english class????!!!!!!
Good call Jo Jo that would be a splendid idea!
What amazes me is that some are struggling to death and some are making easy money
The Idea of making Easy money “0n Line” is a CON.
Most of the schemes are Very Time Consuming, Tiresome, Poorly Paid & Full of Empty Promises.
The Only Effective way is to DIRECT YOUR ENERGY INTO THINKING OF A “NEED.” SERVICE IT & GIVE VALUE FOR MONEY.
