Inbox Dollars

January 12th, 2011 at 06:20 pm

Do you participate in Inbox Dollars? Have you heard of it? Basically, they inundate you with sales offers, and you can earn a tiny bit of cash by putting up with them. Smile

I have an email address I use just for Inbox Dollars. They send you emails which you are paid $.02 each to read. They are ads, of course. They send you survey offers, special promotional offers, and they have an area called "tasks" for which you are paid to perform some minor tasks. I haven't tried any of the tasks yet, but who knows, one of these days I just may get around to it. Stranger things have happened.

You save up your earnings and can cash out anytime you hit $30. I have been doing this for 6 months or so, and am cents away from my first $30. To be honest, I make an effort for a week or so, then ignore them weeks on end.

Today I filled out an application for a Discover card which has a $50 bonus if you spend $500 the first 3 months. For using their link and being approved, Inbox dollars will pay me an additional $15. I believe I will wait for this to be credited, then request a check for $45.

If anyone is interested, you can get a $5 sign-up bonus by using the following link. I get some sort of bonus too, a percentage based on your activity (does not impact your earnings):

This will be mortgage chip money, along with my $50 Discover bonus.

    I did Inbox Dollars but stopped awhile ago. It took me over a year to earn $30, and they charged me $3 to ship so I only got $27! Mypoints is much better, though I've been lax about them. You only get gift cards instead of money, but you earn much faster, it seems.

    I agree with Ceejay about Inbox Dollars. It takes forever to earn money. I much prefer Opinion Outpost. You can receive checks for as little as $5 which can be just 2 or 3 surveys. My husband, who has much more time than me, earns 1-2 checks a week.

    Here is the link.

    I quit also. It took over a year to get $30 and of course, you only get $27. I stick with pinecone.

    I stick with pinecone and mysurvey, too.

    Are you kidding me? They are going to charge me $3 to mail a check? But I don't WANT to pay them $3. Is there an exception if you don't want to?

    I think if you hold off and cash out when you reach 40 (or 45) they waive the $3 fee.

    I do inbox dollars - it only takes maybe 20 seconds per email. If it takes a year, well that'll be 27 or 30 more dollars than I'd have otherwise ...

    I am up to $38.87. I am waiting for a $6 credit for signing up for Nielsen to follow my internet activity.

    At the moment, if I click on request a check, I see that I will be charged $3. I did not submit. I am waiting to see if the fee disappears at $40 or $45 (thanks Suzanne!).

  9. OneAZWoman Says:

    I think they still charge a fee, but they also then give you $3 towards your next check.

  10. Suzanne Says:

    I think when I was doing this, a pop-up window would appear at some point during the cash-out process, telling me about waiving the fee if I'd wait. I hope they still do that.
