Do NOT join this site A waste of time.

January 18, 2020 by Mitchell from United States

Inbox dollars is alright i guess they do pay but they make you pay a processing fee when you cash out you do get it back because you get a $3 bonus after cashout. I think it's one of those sites that gives you something to do if there's no other surveys on other sites.

But if you do join just know they do pay out. I have a big problem with this site i can't do any surveys they keep wanting to send me a text to verify who i am the problem is i can't get a cell phone signal here so i can't get in to do surveys. They need to stop this cause i don't know that i would give them my number now anyway. I could make them some money

horrible site do NOT waste your time!!!

their surveys take forever & they pay very little in rewards! they promise you the moon & stars to sign up for things or to refer people, then they do NOT give you your earned credit.. there are way too many other fun sites that do give you your credit.. do not waste your time on this site!!!

Waste of Time

The have some surveys. But it's hard to make money at $.25 a survey. And their Spin the Wheel game is totally rigged.

Extremely Low Incentive

May 29, 2019 by Cinque from United States

After being a member for a couple of years, and cashing out a few times I decided that this website is not worth it any more do to the fact that it has an extremely low incentive. The money I earned from doing surveys, playing games, and doing scratch offs bailey added up to a dollar. It's very discouraging! You can actually make more money collecting cans in a day instead of doing this!

I also had issues with the fact that they make you wait until you accumulate $30 on your account before you can cash out, and then make you pay a $3.00 processing fee cutting it down to $27.00. The surveys are 20-30 minutes long, and you get disqualified from a lot of surveys on here! Don't bother signing up for this site it's a waste of time!
