Sunrise host David Koch has handled online scheduling of viewers about claims that ordinary Australians can earn thousands in their pocket in a few weeks.
There was no shortage of critics when the new program How To Make $ 10k premiered on Channel Seven in 20 days of the financial guru Wednesday night.
The challenge & # 39; sprint saving & # 39; was contracted by the Gold Coast fiancé couple Tim and Jana who together earned $ 150.00 a year – and Sydney parents Mick and Rebecca Adamson who rely on an income of $ 83,000.
The $ 10,000 three-week challenge took its toll on couples when they cut their groceries in half, took on extra jobs such as cleaning toilets and gardening, tidying up their homes with unwanted and unnecessary items, and putting their properties on Airbnb.

These are all tips that Koch says they can earn Australians up to $ 500 extra per day.
The kickback started hours earlier on social media before the program was even broadcast.
& # 39; Nonsense, how can you save with bill prices, rent and gasoline, these topics are just far from reality, & # 39; said a woman on Facebook.
Another added: & # 39; How many people are going to watch this tonight and turn it off after about 10 minutes when they realize it's a lot of c ** p? People have to live and to do that more is spent than stored. Big words from a man who earns six digits. & # 39;
Gold Coast couple Tim and Jana had to make sacrifices to save for their dream wedding
Online roasting continues during the program, with many viewers wondering how the tips applied to ordinary Australians.
Kochie's three simple things to do to save $ 10,000 in 20 days
- Set a specific goal for yourself
- Know what you save $ 10k for
- Sell your things to earn extra money
& # 39; The couples chosen for this show are very selected, such as the family with $$$ value of baby products and a couple with high-quality clothing and expensive surfboards. Not useful for the average Australian, & tweeted a viewer.
& # 39; The idea of halving your shopping bill is that you still eat nutritious without starving yourself? & # 39;
Others did not find the program useful in their efforts to save.
& # 39; So we have no mess, don't go out to dinner, so please tell me how to do this. Oh and we shop at Aldi once every two weeks, & a woman tweeted
David Koch & # 39; s new show How To Make $ 10k in 20 days premiered on Wednesday night
The new financial show on Channel Seven canceled the online scheduling of viewers
Other viewers with eagle eyes were questioned while small but important details were left out.
How much did they save?
Tim and Jana from the Gold Coast
$ 2341 saved by cutting back
$ 2560 saved on extra jobs
$ 5216 on the sale of Tim & # 39; s boat
TOTAL: $ 10,117 saved
The Adamsons from Sydney
$ 1736 saved on cuts
$ 2035 saved on extra jobs
$ 3482 for selling unwanted items
TOTAL: $ 7,253
& # 39; You promote Airtasker as a quick solution for money by doing small jobs. You do not state that you have to make a bid and the person placing the work must accept your bid from hundreds of others … and that is if they don't just drop the advertisement! Plus the Airtasker costs. And you give false hope by showing that they are paid in cash, which doesn't happen, & tweeted a viewer.
Another viewer asked if the $ 250 the Adamsons earned on a rainy day at Blacktown Markets cost the $ 40 needed to rent a stall.
But some viewers gave the show a thumbs up.
& # 39; Watch your program on budgeting and saving, so I need this help financially & # 39 ;, tweeted a woman.
Although the Adamsons fell short by earning $ 7253, they hope to add to the kitten in the coming weeks with a garage sale to sell the rest of their unwanted items.
They will use the saved money to pay their credit card bills and on a & # 39; date night & # 39; to go.
Many viewers were not happy with the financial advice that the program offered
Tim and Jana managed to reach the $ 10,000 goal for their dream wedding after Tim reluctantly said goodbye to his beloved boat that was sold for more than half the amount.
Koch said the key to making money quickly comes down to three simple steps: sell, earn, and save.
& # 39; Most think it's impossible, but there is a way to get ahead and I'm looking forward to showing Australia how to do it & he said.
He also says families can save $ 20,000 in & # 39; less than an hour & # 39 ;.
& # 39; If you have a home loan, call your bank or lender and ask for a discount on the interest rate & he said.
& # 39; The average Australian mortgage is $ 385,000, so a reduction of just a quarter percent saves $ 30,000 over 30 years. & # 39;
