InboxDollars is a cash-based online rewards club that passes on the revenue it generates from advertisers to its members. By participating in paid surveys, reading e-mails, playing games, redeeming coupons, and more, you can get cashback on your activates.

How InboxDollars Works

Earn cash credited to your account when you complete particular tasks. These include:

  • Using coupons – find hundreds of printable grocery coupons, and earn additional cash back when you use them!
  • Playing games – select from dozens of card, strategy, sports, and word games, and get paid when you play.
  • Shopping cashback – visit the InboxDollars website and get cash back for your purchases from hundreds of merchants including Walmart, Target, Old Navy, and more.
  • Answering surveys – take online surveys when they become available, and earn cash every time you successfully complete a study.
  • Using the toolbar – earn additional cash by using the toolbar for your web searches, and have an easy way of staying informed about the latest free offers, surveys, etc.
  • Reading e-mails – receive emails with special offers, and earn cash when you open some special emails.
  • Referring friends - refer friends and earn 10% of what they earn. Banners and links are provided in your account.

Payment and Rewards

Once your account reaches a balance of $30, you can request a check or a Visa Cash Card.

For non-Gold members, it takes around two weeks for payments to be processed. For gold members, payments are processed weekly. Payments are issued in US dollars, regardless of where you live.

A Great Site

January 19, 2019 by Kathryn from United States

Very easy to use, quick cashout and not overcomplicated surveys. I find it actually relaxing simply sitting at home relaxing earning a few extra dollars by simple surveys that pops up.

Excellent Survey Site!

Inboxdollars is a survey site I visit daily. You will make "Real Money" IF you put in the time. They have a Que. of the Day. Free Games, Free Offers & Coupons, Paid Emails, and of course, Surveys! You can cash out at only $30. This is one of the easiest ways to make $ by doing surveys, and one of my favorites!

Legit survey site

Legit site. Many ways to collect points for trade in for gift cards. One thing that I really don't like is how long it takes to make the $30 cash out but when you finally do, you have alot of choices to get paid. I've cashed out twice, took forever ( I play every day) .

Great Site

It takes a little longer to cash out on Inbox Dollars as the minimum is $30, but there are plenty of ways to earn and quite a few higher paying opportunities to help you reach cash out easily.
