Christmas bonus looking unlikely this year? Not to worry - we've got eight ways to give your budget a boost this festive season.
From getting paid to recycle old John Lewis clothing to shopping on cashback websites there's bound to be something you can do to give yourself a little treat.
Here, Which? explains all the ways you can earn some extra cash or vouchers before the end of the year.
American Express has brought back its Shop Small scheme for another year.
You just need to enrol your card into the scheme online, or using the app, and the credit should appear on your billing statement within five days.
John Lewis has launched a trial 'buy back' scheme at its Oxford branch.
It will accept all used womenswear and menswear brands stocked at John Lewis from the 20,000 local 'my John Lewis' members invited to take part.
In return, the customers will receive £3 per item (up to a maximum of £9) on a gift card, which can then be spent in John Lewis or Waitrose.
If you haven't been invited to take part there are alternative schemes you can try.
Alternatively, you can take your donation, which must include a piece of M&S clothing, to Oxfam and get a £5 M&S clothing and home voucher to spend in-store.
This works through a browser extension that pops up with a set of results each time you use a search engine like Google or Amazon.
Qmee results will appear in a sidebar alongside your normal results. It shows you available discounts and, in some cases, will offer a cash reward for clicking on links.
You're not required to buy anything to earn cash and there's no minimum cashout amount.
The hardest part is getting into the habit of remembering to head to a cashback website and use one of its tracked links to complete your purchase.
If you really want to commit to never miss a deal, TopCashback and Quidco have web browser extensions you can install. These alert you each time you visit a retailer that offers cashback.
A growing number of banks and building societies offer tailored cashback schemes that pay up to 15% when you spend with your debit card in-store and online.
Even though switching offers are getting rarer, you may be able to earn money by referring a friend.
Nationwide will offer £100 for each friend or family member you recommend up to a maximum of £500 per tax year.
Elsewhere, TSB will offer £75 per recommendation up to a maximum of £375 for getting friends and family to sign up.
There are loads of websites that can help you quickly recycle your old stuff and raise some extra cash over the festive season.
It's free to list your stuff and the firm has an insurance policy for lenders that protects your items against loss, theft and damage.
So if you've got a mixer, guitar, projector, bike or hedge trimmer gathering dust - put it to work and rent it out for the day.
