5in5Now.com Reviews – Legit or Scam?


from 21 reviews Review It


5in5now.com is a website that, as the name suggests, shows you how to make 5 dollars in 5 minutes daily.  The basis of this program is to show you how to make money signing up for offers and trying out products and services.

5In5Now will also pay you for:

  • Completing Surveys
  • Referring Friends, Family and Colleagues
  • Reading Emails
  • Using the Bonus Offer Program

After completing all these activities you can cash out once you reach $25 in your account, at which point you can request payout via check or PayPal.  What 5 in 5 Now is doing is not new and there are many companies that offer this type of work.

The website is free to join but there are a couple important things to keep in mind when trying to make money with offers.  If you’re signing up for an offer make sure to read all the terms and conditions and understand what you’re signing up for.

The reason many people call these types of programs scams is because they’re not careful with what they sign up for and many times you may be billed additional charges once the trial period is over.  So if you are signing up for a product or service that you know you’re not interested in keeping make sure to cancel within the allotted time period.

    This site is totally a scam. Avoid at all cost. I strongly believe that any positive reviews on this website are posted by the proprietor or employees of 5in5 Updates. The biggest problem is that if you want to stop your subscription to this site, there is no way to do it. I can not tell you how many times I have tried to unsubscribe from their email list. That process simply does not work and the emails (lots of them) just keep coming. Don’t be taken in by this scam. There are plenty of other sites like this where you can make money by reviewing products, completing surveys, or simply reading emails for points redeemable for merchandise.

    .. Why don’t you all just stop being so negative unless ya’ll actually tried a Survey site.. there’s alot of people out here who likes to bad mouth something cause they do not get want they want… oh wait.. that’s everywhere now and day… don’t talk shit or bad mouth a site unless you experience yourself.. lot of people talk shit just cause they hate something!!… Me, I been with InboxDollars for years now.. and I wasn’t sure if it was going to pay til I tried it for myself and yes Inboxdollars is legit… I had brought previous gifts with that money.. I was also worried myself that the site was a scam til I learn myself.. So stop believing these foney people on here!!… 5in5 survey site might or might not be a scam but what if they not, dont just not try because some1 wrote a bad review, cause that person might be wrong!!.. I looked up on Inboxdollars before I signed up and people were saying ” oh.. how much of a scam it was”.. it is not a scram… So please dont trust what ppl say….

    Nicollette, I’m. New to inbox dollars and so far so good. Only been a member for a week, haven’t gotten a check yet, but soon. The one i didn’t like was cash only surveys. Out of trying to take about ten surveys, i only qualified for one, but still took my time away. One said i had to take on a larger device. Well, i only have a smart phone. Computer broke. HAve you gotten inbox dollar payments ?

    You people are dumbasses, you are reviewing how their offers are fake. Of course they’re fake, that’s not how you earn the money. You fill out the advertisements, the advertisers get money from that. When they confirm that you were on their site, they give you the money it specifies through 5in5.

    This happens with many sites, including Cashcrate, Inboxdollars, Sendearnings, Fusioncash, etc. This is not a new thing, yet most of the people commenting are clearly new to this sort of money making. If you haven’t tried something like 5in5 before, then sod off so that other people who have done things like this can get a good understanding of what 5in5 really is.

    I just signed up through another website, now I’m thinking I should have checked into them. I looked at my account and it says I have almost $6,000.00 in my account all related to 2012. I didn’t sign up until now, Sept-2013. I’m afraid to cash out because I chose to be paid by check. If it bounces, I’m the one responsible for paying the fees…that is if I get a check. Has anyone gotten paid by this website? I don’t understand how I would have this much in my account. What do I do?

    5in5 is a big scam. I can’t believe that you guys don’t know any good survey site there are tons of them.
    for beginners though if you really wanna make a little cash try Opinion Outpost they are awesome. I have made over $300 from them in under four months. I promise you join them you will get paid.

    5 in 5 now ‘claims’ they will pay you for Surveys. I earned over $25 in completed Surveys showing in that tab, but unable to Cash Out because it says $0.00. I have emailed ‘support’ everyday (through their site and directly) for over a month and have yet to get a single reply (only more email offers). So – Yes, 5 in 5 IS a SCAM! because they don’t reply, fix, or intend to pay what they say.

    Halfway through sign-up, I wanted out. They were asking way too much information and it made me really annoyed. So I didn’t submit my details.

    HOWEVER, I received like 10 emails a day from them despite this. Worse of all, when I try to log in to my account to cancel it, it says the account is not valid. So now I’m stuck with a whole bunch of stupid emails and no way to cancel it.

    Do not have anything to do with this website. If you sign up and then change your mind they refuse to remove your name from their list. I have unsubscribed 12 times to no avail. Another thing to note is that their emails are obsessive. I have received as many as six in one day. DON’T DO IT!!!!!! DON’T SIGN UP!!!

    I have signed up for a lot of survey sites. I have done so because I wanted to gather all of the legit survey sites up and try them all to see which ones would make me a little income a month and which ones would be a waste of my time and honestly, from the looks of this one, from the reviews I have read from other members, from the emails I have received and from the offers I have “tried” to complete.. Tells me that this survey, IS A WASTE OF TIME! Yes, that’s all this survey site does is keep pulling you around in a circle, how dumb do you think I look chasing $5. That’s what this is like.. Okay, this site is like finding a $5 bill on the ground while just walking in the park, and then you go to grab it and as soon as you grab it.. It moves… And than you wait and go to grab it again and it moves again..It moved because someone had it on an invisible string because the money doesn’t belong to you.. It’s a joke, there’s no such thing as making $5 in 5 minutes, defianelty not from this site!! Smh, this is simply for fun, you definatelt won’t become rich or else, everyone in the worn would just take surveys for a living :) have a good day!! But all in all… Be careful what sites you sign up for. I also have a million and one phone calls each day.. Take care!!

    Shannon, your comment “how dumb do you think I look chasing $5. That’s what this is like.” I burst out laughing, because not only are you exactly right but I couldn’t help picturing the $5 bill on the ground with the string and compare it to “how dumb do you think I look” .. I was researching this survey site as well as a few others…thanks for your descriptive, humorous and very true statement! lol

    I didn’t even sign up for them and I am being spammed by their e-mail offers. To me, this instantly puts them on the scam side. No even semi-legit business should send random spam.

    There are two surveys that I have done for years that are reputable and honest. But just to put a little extra money in your pocket. There are Pinecone Research by Karen Scott that pays you 3.00 a survey into a PayPal account each time you do one. They also at times end you samples to try from time to time.
    The other is American Consumer Opinion by Anne Parks, hers is also a cash out through PayPal that pays anywhere from 4.00 per survey and up at times.
    There is no maximum or minimum before transferring funds or fees to your bank from PayPal and generally get paid within 1-3 days after completion.
    Hope this helps some of you who enjoy doing surveys, sampling new products and making a little extra cash while doing so. It’s not a get rich by no means, just fun.

    I recommend creating a separate email (gmail/yahoo/hotmail, whatever) for each of these offer type companies so if you get spammed, you won’t clog your personal email box.

    This is the biggest scam I have seen in awhile. It promises to pay you $5.00 for surveys but it does not. It promises you $20.00 gift cards after a survey,but then they want you to take at least two of their sponsors offers that almost always cost you money. It’s a waste of time!!

    I sure wish someone would tell the rest of us when you find ONE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS!!! This is so frustrating… so far CashCrate is the only one that seems to pay off. But if your demographics are off a hair, good luck qualifying for surveys.

    Scam. They offer money for completing tasks. the tasks are registering for other sites and completing thier tasks which are registring for other sites and completing thier tasks… etc…. see the pattern. It never ends. Down the road the tasks involve getting and using credit cards, and all sorts of other things. They are uncompletable. Because everyone you click on to complete only leads you to 10 more, and if you fail to complete 1 you get nothing. This is just a scam simple as that. As are the rest of the survey and make money sites online. They all operate the same way. they are only there to get your info and sell it.

    Hi DPM
    No truer words have been spoken. I joined this 5in5now from a link from some other bogus survey site I got involved with. What a real joke all this survey B.S. is. First off I went cockeyed for the first week of all these surveys you need to fill out which just kink you to other surveys and other and other. All I wanted was a little extra money for my family since I was laid off. IS ANYTHING ON THIS INTERNET LEGIT OR WHAT??!!!
    Totally fed up. Luckily I did not invest any money really. Just a lot of repetitious personal info over and over again. Stay away from any of these survey SCAMS I haven’t made a dime.
