Inbox Dollars Reviews

Legit or Scam?



from 590 reviews Review It
Inbox Dollars


InboxDollars is a program that advertises several different ways of making money online.  They attract folks with promises of an easy supplementary income earned from reading emails and signing up for online offers.

After you join Inbox Dollars you will begin to receive emails for which you earn around .02 -.05 cents.  Periodically you will receive membership offers from companies that pay you for trying out their services, payouts are a little more than you get for emails and sometimes include gift certificates.

The other way to make money with InboxDollars.com is by referring more people to the opportunity.  You earn five dollars for each person that signs up through your referral link.  This is a simple and hassle free way to add to your income stream.

If you join InboxDollars there are several things that you should keep in mind to ensure that your experience is a positive one.  When signing up for offers that require personal info read all the terms and regulations and make sure that any info you submit is to a reputable company.

Also, people have expressed concern about the payout structure of InboxDollars and have called the program a scam.  In my experience InboxDollars.com pays out checks accordingly, the problem is that very few people are actually making real money.

Overall, some folks enjoy this opportunity but others find it to be a waste of time.  People have complained about the low amount of emails that they receive from Inbox Dollars.  At 1 to 2 emails a day you'll be earning less than a dollar per week.  So in the end Inbox Dollars is not a scam but it's also not a reasonable way to earn a living in my opinion.

Of course you won't get rich with inbox dollars, but a little extra $30 or $40 here and there is always nice. I've found inbox dollars to be the fastest earning of all the online reward programs that I've tried. I earned just over $40 in 5 weeks just doing the surveys, free offers, videos and emails and am well on my way to earning a second check. Most importantly I found the site to be trustworthy, paying me exactly when they said they would.

I Have noticed recently that inbox post a survey that will say 50 cents for 20 minutes and when you click to do the survey they say 25 cents for 20 minutes.also the videos are getting longer and the payouts smaller.

Inbox does give you ways to earn but you must stay active or you will never receive your check ,also it seems as you get close to being able to request a check the free opportunities get less and less,then once you finally order a check and your balance drops then your free opportunities increase again.You do not get anything other than a free spin on the wheel if you start a survey and don't qualify.Several of the surveys they use will take you all the way through the survey and then ask for your sex ,age etc... at the end and then tell you that you don't qualify or that your demographic quota has already been filled.a Rip off in my opinion since I JUST SPENT 20 MINUTES or MORE doing the whole survey.So You be your own Judge is it worth it?

I reached $50 and requested a check. When I didn't receive it after a couple of months, I went to the website to request it again, but Surprise! My account was now inactive and my earnings were gone. What a waste of time.

When I started with inbox dollars about 8 months ago all was going well, very very slowly but somewhat well. Then bam all of a sudden I can't open any of their emails, I can't read any emails to get paid 5 cents and worse of all , I have emailed inbox dollars about 20 times to complain about this I they don't even have the common decency to return any of my emails! I received 3 emails from them last week but they still have not replied as to why I can't open any of their emails . Very frustrating!!!!!!!!

I have been with Inboxdollars for about two months and have made two checks. While it is not a way to earn a living, it is a great way to make a little extra money and they definitely do pay. They do have a $3 processing fee when you ask for the check, but it is given back to you immediately towards your next check. If you only do emails, surveys and watch videos it will go slow, the money is in the cash offers.
One of the best ways to make money is to go to the top "other" button, click shopping from the little drop down screen and you will find a whole list of stores that you will receive a certain percentage of your purchases in inboxdollars. This includes stores like walmart.com, target.com and many other popular stores. If you shop online, this will make you money rather quickly on inboxdollars.
There are many ways to make money on inboxdollars doing things that you already do, like playing games even. I am a paying member of Winster.com where every million point earned I get $4 on inbox dollars.
Inbox dollars is a great way to receive discounts from stores we all love to shop at, we just have to learn to shop online instead of going to wal-mart or target.
I would recommend anyone to join inboxdollars. They do pay and there are many ways to earn money beyond emails and surveys.

Yes it takes a little bit of time to get to the $30 mark. I have been doing it for a week and i am at $18.00. I dont always get to take the survey and when i spin the wheel i have won cash instead of all tickets. What does it hurt to take them when not doing anything or can not sleep.

I've only been a member since 2013/05/06, and already have $24.00. I don't know if I will get a check or not bu I'm being optimistic. If I do get a check then bump this to 4 stars.

I have been a member for a year and have made $120. I spent the first 6 months not filling out any surveys (just clicked the paid emails, watched an occasional video, and used their search engine). I referred my wife and she has made $40 in about 6 months. We each get about 3 emails a day for an offer, which we get 2 cents for clicking the email. A penny for each internet search, and a couple of pennies for watching videos. Some are 30 seconds, others are a few minutes long. Some you can start and just go back to another webpage while the ad runs in the background. Not much money, but not much work, either.

The first check can take over a month to be mailed. After that, they are mailed out after about a week. They will give you a date as to when the check is mailed which they stick to.

If you don't fill out your profile, then you likely will not qualify for very many surveys. I would guess I qualify about 15% of the time. Most are 50 cents, but I do get an occasional $2 to $5 survey. If I am not doing anything, I'll take 50 cents for 15 minutes of my time. If you can make more than that, with other panels, then Inbox Dollars is not the best for you.

One down side is they will charge you a $3 processing fee when you request your payment. However, after you claim your check, they will put $3 back into your account. That means if you claim $30, your check will be for $27, but you will start off your next check with $3 in your account. And with each check, they have always offered to waive that fee if you can reach $40 in the next 30 days. You will still get the $3 for starting over. I am not a big fan of jumping through hoops to get a check in the mail, but it is not a scam. I wish they would pay via Paypal instead of mailing you a check. PayPal is cheaper and easier.

Listen, people... Inbox Dollars is a good, legit way to make money in your spare time. There is no need to test it, lie to the about your identity, or put them down. When you join, you should prepare yourself for making a little slow, easy cash. There are so many good features to talk about with this process. Why even bother with the negative? You may not qualify to finish a survey because the questions you answer do not align with your profile, or even because Inbox Dollars just caught you lying. That wastes both your time and theirs. So let's be real. Real opinions + true answers + time = money.

I've been doin inboxdollars for 2 months and only up to 14 dollars and some change.I don't get a survey everyday or offers everyday.I am a stay at home mom I don't have no money in my pockets I have to rely on my other half for things so I thought this would b a good way for me to earn something but it is raising slowly

I've been with Inbox for about 2 years... I just cashed a check for $70, but it took me about 6 months to build that up, I also got a check for $50 before that. And once you request your 1st check you are in their "Gold membership" which means they process your checks much quicker, and while there is a $3 processing fee, once you've requested your check,they give you $3... I like it because I just have to read emails, just by clicking them. Sometimes (rarely) I will qualify for a survey. And sometimes they have good offers to try that you can get money on. So no, you are not going to replace your income with this, but you can earn a little extra spending money for just clicking emails...

After 2 weeks I made $12,I decided I would see if they paid,I found out I needed $30 to cash out. From that point on I suddenly didn't qualify for any surveys.

I participate in this, as well as its little sister site sendearnings. I've already got my first check for sendearnings, but with inbox dollar, they never have a survey for me to complete!!!! I've tried for months and was only able to complete one survey. I like the fact they got that wheel to spin if you don't qualify for a survey, however I believe it's rigged. Either I don't win any thing, or just a entry to their sweepstakes that I've never heard of any one winning.. Ill keep trying but so far it's been a complete waste of time and effort.

I got my first 30$ payout less the $3 service fee last October so I cannot say they did not pay.

But I agree that it is mostly a big scam. They reel you in get you to answer 10 minutes worth of questions and then tell you, you do not qualify for the survey. I have noticed this more lately and think this is really slimy of them. It's .50 cents!!

If you enjoy answering surveys -go for it-if you want to earn some extra $-these are not the people.

Some of these reply's scream of (I work for Inbox Dollars)

F**k Inbox Dollars they take your info from surveys then cheat you by telling you. (You don't qualify for the survey) That you some how qualified to take but you just don't qualify to finish?...That makes no sense (To me) and it wouldn't be as bad if they were cheating you out of real money. Like $50 $100 $200...But no 0.50...50 F'n cent lol

I think i'll try other sites I've tried my hand at Inbox and i'm not a fan

For the unknowing don't be taken in by the survey's that Inbox Dollar's offer's . 9 out of 10 time's you will find out that after you answer 40 or 50 question's, the survey will drop you stating that you don't qualify for the survey . and you don't get the few penny's they said you would get . I was doing it to pass the time not for the few penny's they said that I was going to get . These people are making lot's of money for the survey's they give so why beat the mass .

Not really a feasible way to make any extra income like Inbox Dollars claims. Once a subscriber asks for an "earned payout" the site tries to convince you not get your $. Site also charges a "service fee" to send the money you've earned. I requested my payout after 1 year of service, after a month still haven't gotten a check and now Inbox Dollars no longer sends me paid emails or $ earning opportunities. Guess they don't really want us to "earn" those Inbox Dollars. I have had a great experience with "My Points" and would recommend this plan to anyone. "My Points" is a great program!
