Inbox Dollars: Get paid to read emails, take surveys, search the web, and more

Sign up for Inbox Dollars and you’ll get paid to read emails, search the web, take surveys, and more. I loved earning free gift cards from Inbox Dollars when Jesse was in law school and I had a lot more time than money.

    I agree with Cristal that InboxDollars is legitimate and worth the time. It was also featured on Good Morning America (by the way, you did great on the show Cristal!).

    They offer many ways to earn and save money online. You can read/view e-mails (advertisements), take surveys, shop online, search the web and complete small online tasks, all fun and easy.

    If I remember correctly it took me 3 months to get my first $30, but at that time I didn’t really know how to use the website. After a while I became more familiar with InboxDollars and all it has to offer. Since then I cashed out over $400.

    I think I like their online shopping discounts the most . InboxDollars offers bigger online discounts then Upromise, FatWallet, SavingStar or any other online saving club that I know. Whenever I am determined to purchase something online I go to InboxDollars to see if they offer a discount for particular merchant I’m planning to purchase something from.

    In December of 2013 my wife and I decided to buy an exercise bike from Wal-Mart (had the best price for the bike that we liked). After we made our final decision I logged in into my InboxDollar account, clicked on More/Shopping, than clicked on Wal-Mart discount link and that took me to Wal-Mart website where I purchased the bike. Three weeks later I had $10 credited to my InboxDollars account. That pushed me over $30 again so I requested my next check. It was mailed to me on January 8 2014 and I received it few days later :)

    We would buy the bike from Wal-Mart anyway, but thanks to InboxDollars we saved $10. It’s as good as free money! Than why not?!

    Great recommendation Cristal!

      Can you explain what exactly you do with Inbox? I am a member, I have cashed out once. Need more ideas.

        Sharon, I mainly use InboxDollars to shop online, but I also use their browser search toolbar, take surveys, read e-mails and clip coupons.

        They actually have very nice selection of coupons for things I buy anyway like: Yoplait yogurt, Browny paper towel, Cheerios, PLANTERS, GAIN, Crest Rinse, all detergent, Charmin, Colgate, Down, Simply Orange and so much more. I get $0.10 every time I redeem a coupon. Not only I get to pay less for the products I buy anyway, I also get few cents into my InboxDollars account. It all ads up.

        The most money (by far) I get from online shopping.
        Here are some places I often buy from:
        Walmart – 2%
        Target – 2%
        KOHL’S – 3%
        Kmart – 3%
        SEARS – 2%
        Macy’s – 4%
        iTunes – 4%
        Old Navy – 4%
        Perfumania – 6% (my favorite, they offer great deals even without that 6% from InboxDollars)

        There are more options, but these above represent places I shop most often. Of course I buy there only when it makes sense (product price is the lowest or at least equal with other places).

        InboxDollars use to offer an 8% discount from drugstore.com but they no longer do. I don’t know why. It was one of my favorite places to buy my Omega 3′s. Before I made a purchased I checked other places first (like Vitamin Shoppe and such) to see if the price they offered at the time was competitive. If it was, I made a purchase. If not, I was going with the other cheapest option. I don’t have to tell you how attractive that 8% was. I hope they will bring it back.

        I never played any games at InboxDollars so I don’t know anything about that. I was actually wondering if someone makes money that way with InboxDollars. Maybe someone can share some tips?
