Exclusive: Get £100 reward from Airbnb

by Chris | Money Saving, Tips, Websites

Back in April we heard from PMP’s Airbnb hosts and discovered that anyone with extra space can make some substantial regular income from it. As long as your extra space is clean, and you’re honest about what to expect, you can start earning right now. Some hosts even rent out a spare bed in the same room as theirs. Having just come back from Glasto, that doesn’t seem so bad… … Read more

Midsummer Mudders

by Chris | News, Pollfish

Just thought I’d give everyone a “general update”, since there’s nothing big to announce, quite a few small things to mention and frankly, I’m struggling to get my brain out of TA11. … Read more

Thanks from Shrouds of the Somme

by Chris | Charity, News

Back in October we featured Rob Heard’s jaw-dropping exhibition of 72,396 shrouded figures, each representing an unrecovered commonwealth soldier who died at the Battle of the Somme. The PMP community were so taken by it that we collectively pledged tens of thousands of pounds to his Kickstarter campaign. When I met him at the Olympic Park exhibition he told me “We wouldn’t be here without PMP” … Read more

Airbnb is great for affordable travel, but do you know how much money you can make from your own home? You may wonder why, but every postcode is a potential holiday, family visit, or business trip. PMPers are making up to £2,000 as Airbnb hosts, and they say there’s much more to enjoy than to fear. Here’s why you should become an Airbnb host … Read more

Bun Fight

by Chris | Statistics

A colleague has an ongoing disagreement with his partner. He toasts his hot cross buns, while she has them cold. She says he’s weird. He says “let’s find out now“. He wins, and doesn’t brag at all. … Read more
