April to November 2018 – Extra Income Update

Yet another long overdue post. Not too much activity since the last post, but quite a bit of significant income!

Again, my “extra income” sources are divided as follows:

Cash Back (not actual income):

  • MBNA Credit Card
  • Ebates

Social Media (Actual Income generation):

  • Youtube (Adsense)
  • Amazon Affiliate Links
  • Blog

Let’s dive into it!

Cash Back:

  • April:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $158.00
    • Ebates.ca: $0.00
  • May:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $189.00
    • Ebates.ca: $0.00
  • June:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $444.00
    • Ebates.ca: $57.02
  • July:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $333.00
    • Ebates.ca: $0.00
  • August:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $187.00
    • Ebates.ca: $11.99
  • September:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $115.00
    • Ebates.ca: $0.00
  • October:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $84.00
    • Ebates.ca: $0.00
  • November:
    • MBNA Rewards World Elite Mastercard: $117.00
    • Ebates.ca: $5.05

Obviously here the CC cash back means I’ve been spending more. This was expected because I recently started a business, moved, bought a house, changed cars… mm hmm. Always bitter sweet getting cash back that’S directly proportional to the amount spent…

As for the Ebates return, I’ve received my second check. There will be an increase as well, for the same reasons as stated above.

My Youtube revenue is still doing quite well. We’ll see how long I can ride this wave. This actually pays a few bills every month!   Channel

In terms of Affiliate Links, I actually got my first payment in May 2018. Won’t receive another one for a while though as it took forever to accumulate enough to pass the threshold.

The Blog is showing continued signs of some minor financial life. Few dollars here and there. As stated before, this is not the goal here. No actual payments yet.

Conclusion

In total, my Year-to-Date income sources generated the following sums:

  • Youtube: $3,485.73
  • Amazon: $128.37
  • Blog: $0.00
  • MBNA Cash Back: $1,842
  • Ebates: $91.09

Total for 2018: $5,547.19

I’m very surprised of the sustained income coming from my Youtube Channel.

I thinks it important to take advantage of cash back opportunities as you can see by the fact that I’ve received almost $2,000 in various Cash Back forms for 2018 alone.

What are your cash back sources?

Cheers!
