Thanks for your consideration in donating to this site.
Currently I have a part time job to support my living; but I do try and save up enough money to purchase products that I can test out and review for you guys.
For a better experience for my readers I don’t litter my site with ads, it’s fully non-profit and I don’t make any money from writing my blogs; it’s just something I enjoy doing and I like to help others!
From time to time I get lucky and a company will reach out to me and send me a free product, in exchange for an honest review; but most of the time I would have to purchase the products myself.
If you love my work please consider donating, your donations will help me purchase even more products to review and test out; essentially helping out my readers!
Donations are handled by PayPal so you can be sure it’s safe.
If you can’t donate at this time, there are other ways to support me which benefits you as well; please continue to read after the donate button.

Other Ways To Help
If you can’t make a donation, no problem!
You can help me out by using my affiliates’ links and referral codes as I get some perks for inviting new people to these services. A lot of the time it will benefit you as well, so it’s a win win for both of us!
Everyone has heard of Uber I’m sure, but there is a new Taxi in town called Bolt, I find that Bolt’s prices are a lot cheaper than Uber, so I tend to use them more now.
ethically, they pay their drivers a lot more than Uber, so there is that.
Plus, it is a good idea to have multiple taxi apps on your phone, to price match, sometimes one is more than the other. They also run discounts at different times as well, so you don’t know what perks you may get for one day.
Sign up to Bolt and use my code: ALEXM71AW and you get your first ride 100% free, up to £12.
Fiverr is the world’s largest marketplace for digital services. From designing logos and videos, to producing music and recording voiceovers.
I love using them if I need something like a logo or picture made, as I suck at visual designs for obvious reasons.
The best bit is that it’s super affordable, you don’t need to pay hundreds for someone to design a graphic, you can get it done as cheap as $5!
Sign up using my invite, and you even get that $5 off!
Virgin Experience Days (UK)
Do you like to try out new things?
Hard to think of gift ideas for someone who has nearly everything?
Virgin Experience Days is a site where you can buy, well experiences…
From afternoon high tea and Michelin-starred three-course meals at posh locations, to adventures on a hot air balloon and even the Orient-Express; you can experience all these with your loved ones.
I personally used this for my girlfriend’s 29th birthday, I took her to try the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at Fortnum & Mason. The price normally starts at £62.50 per person, but through Virgin, I was able to get the whole meal for two for only £100.
Sign up using my link, and you will get 20% off! I too will get something too, but they didn’t say what, so I will update this once someone signs up.
I hope you enjoy yourself!
Curve (Europe only)
Are you like me and have enough debit and credit cards to form a deck of playing cards? Even if you don’t have 52, 3 or 4 is more than enough.
Here is a card to rule them all!
Curve combine all your cards together into one, so all you need to do is bring 1 card out with you. You can pick which card to use in their app before each purchase. If you forgot to change your card, their Back In Time feature allows you to refund the first card and charge the newly selected card, so if you are a points hoarder like me, you have full control. I have my Virgin Atlantic, my Freedom Barclaycard, as well as a few business cards linked to Curve. My credit limit on my new Virgin card is still a bit low, so if I don’t have enough, I can switch it to my Barclay’s, pay for the product, and once my Virgin credit is paid off, use Back In Time to use that card for those lovely airmiles! It also has 0% fees for oversea purchases, using any card.
Sign up, and we will both get £5 once you spend on Curve for the first time.
unfortunately this does not work with Amex.
Virgin Broadband (UK)
I don’t have much to say, it is broadband, that thing that gives you internet, and it’s from Virgin.
I use them for both my personal and business, after trying all the main providers here in the UK. I am currently getting 350MBps for only £32, so it is a lot faster than the others, plus they use their own cables, where as the other companies will use BT, which means none of them, will be faster than BT, and BT isn’t even that quick.
The highest speeds are up to 1GBps now, so you can go nuts with streaming!
Sign up by using my link, or quoting BCAOIXCY when you ring them up on 08000520811 and we both get £50.
You can also get some money if you take out a sim with them as well, but don’t bother, their phone network is rubbish.
FreeTrade (UK only)
Here is an easy-to-use, newbie-friendly app to buy stocks and shares. If you are in the UK and new to investing, I highly recommend this app, you can read my review here.
Sign up using my link and we will both get a mystery stock worth between £3 to £200!
Good luck 🍀
Want to dip your tows in buying stocks and shares? especially with everything on the market being so cheap due to the pandemic, I use Trading212 as my primary account as it has a free ISA which means I wouldn’t have to pay tax on any of my profits. If you are new, you can practice with a virtual £50000 to see if you are any good.
Accessibility still needs a little work, but the main actions are accessible.
Sign up and we will get a random share up to £100!
Crypto.Com (most countries including 🇬🇧 🇪🇺 🇺🇸 🇸🇬 🇨🇦 🇮🇳)
I’m sure everyone has heard about crypto currencies, from the famous Bitcoin, which grew to £50000 in 2021 per coin, compare to it being only £2 10 years ago, more and more people are using it now, and it is being adopted by big companies such as PayPal. The only down side is that it isn’t very easy to buy unless you are very tech savvy.
Crypto.Com offers a Visa debit card, just like those issued by your banks, where you can top up, and every time you spend you get money back in crypto, a bit like a cashback credit card. If you pay for Netflix and Spotify, you get 100% cashback in their coin, CRO. Currently 1 CRO = 16p or 21 cents; if you pay for Spotify which is £9.99 a month, you will get about 61 CRO back. You can use this Cro to buy other crypto like Bitcoin or transfer it back to your local currency. I am personally holding onto CRO as I believe this company has potential to grow, as it is making it accessible for everyone to get into the crypto world. It has 10 million users worldwide, and it is expanding to more countries.
Unfortunately, the app isn’t fully accessible, but the main features are accessible.
You can sign up to Crypto.com using my referral link and we will both get $25 worth of CRO!
Just make sure you type in the code as well when asked on the website and app. It is:
Once you signed in, verify yourself with your official ID, and top up your account.
Good luck, and as the kids say, let’s go to the moon! 🚀
