I tried the new Starbucks Pineapple Refresher

Image
  I had stars that were going to expire so I decided to try the new refresher. I have seen some reviews of people that love it and others of people that hate it. It’s often sold out but I was in a location where they had it.  I am not really a fan of pineapple flavours. I like other refreshers from Starbucks and I love passion fruit so thought it might be good. There are options to add coconut milk or lemonade. I always get coconut milk in my coffee but I don’t like it in refreshers and I always like lemonade. The drink at first seemed okay but it had a strange bitter aftertaste after each sip. I am not sure the addition of the lemonade made it like that but my mom and I both didn’t like it. It was drinkable but not something I would order again. I will stick to the the Mango Dragon Fruit refresher as my go to refresher from Starbucks.  Let me know if you have tried it in the comments or on Instagram @livingottawalocal.

2017 Goal Reached Earned $1000 CDN from the internet and $1375 Goal for 2018

I am so excited that I actually accomplished this goal I have some previous posts on what apps and sites I used. As promised in the last post here is the breakdown on how I earned it.


Total                                        $2017

Amazon mturk $413.81
focus groups $225.00
Swagbucks $105.00
field agent 98.25
EVA 62
prolific 42.05
ipsos isay 10
pinecone 42
shoppers army 31.5
Total $1,029.61

I actually earned a little more but I lost $15 with Qricket. I am no longer a VIP member so I expect I will be able to earn something with Qricket in 2018. I am not stopping here the goal for 2018 is $1375. 

To be clear not all of this is cash some of it is in gift cards so here is the breakdown on how I chose to convert the earnings. 

Mturk - amazon.com credits converted to Whole Foods and Starbucks gift cards
Focus Groups - Were paid in cash
Swagbucks - Starbucks gift cards
EVA - paid by cheque
Prolific - paid by paypal
Ipsos I say - Starbucks gift cards
Pinecone - paid by paypal
Shoppers army - paid by cheque

I keep thinking about why I met this goal this year if you read this blog you know that I have been trying for three years. The reason is I could see results which kept me motivated. If something no longer worked I could change to something else. The reason I did much better with Mturk than last year is I joined a facebook group that is amazing and supportive. Keep working at your goals, finding new ways to achieve them and joining communities with the same goals one day you will achieve them. 

The tentative plan for 2018 with knowing that everything on the internet can change in a few weeks and the way to meet the goal may have to change.

Mturk - $750 CDN - this is possible if things stay at the current rate I am at $20 USD a week now
Prolific -$200 CDN - I joined in November and made $42 at a slow time of year
Swagbucks -$150 CDN - there is more potential in Swagbucks than I use 
Field Agent - $150 - the last half of 2017 was slow hopefully will get better again
Pinecone - $50 - There wasn't much work in 2017 
Other - $75 - I expect that I may not make the mturk goal and will have to supplement with other work so I am setting this low but know that there is a buffer in here. 

Goal for 2018 is $1375 Canadian Dollars
