If I could, I would give it 0 stars!

I was a member of Send Earnings. It is now closing. You have a choice...if you do not have 30 dollars to cash out, you can lose it or you can join their sister site, InboxDollars. I switched over to InboxDollars. InBoxDollars took five dollars out of my account. I complained about it. They got back to me and told me it is correct. It is not. Today, they took all my money and deleted my account saying I broke the rules. I did nothing. These people use you and waste your time. Forget about making money here because you will never receive it. You make pennies to begin with. I was with them for a very long time. Don't waste your time. When you see a positive review for this group, think about who put it there....Think InboxDollars.

Great Site!

No More Surveys

May 14, 2020 by Lauren from United States

After using InboxDollars for about a year, all of my surveys suddenly disappeared. I've been averaging about $40 a month and my surveys disappeared last week after I hit around $25. This is what I got back after contacting them: 

"All Activities and Features are made available to an account based on a variety of factors such as inventory, eligibility, geographic locations, and demographics.

If you are not seeing surveys on your page then this would indicate that the account is no longer eligible for surveys other than what is shown on the account.

This can occur if you provide inaccurate or dishonest information, your geographic responses given to the advertiser does not match your profile on the account or due to changing or altering your profile demographics, “speeding through the surveys” which means your eligibility to access or even participate in future surveys may be limited and they have been removed.

Members must provide truthful, accurate, valid information provided to any survey provider, and false or inaccurate information is considered a violation of terms.

Please note that all activities will display on your account as what is currently available to you and we are not able to change or alter what your account has accessed to in regards to surveys.

Please allow me to offer further clarification - as explained in our previous responses InboxDollars®  is independent of our Survey Providers. This means that InboxDollars®  has no say in which Surveys are available to you. The availability of Surveys is managed entirely by Survey Providers, at their discretion. While we have been happy to provide general insight into why Surveys may not be available to you, we have no control over which Surveys are or are not available."

I'm frustrated because I am always honest and careful in my surveys. I responded asking for contact info for the "Survey Providers" and haven't heard back for a week, even after a followup.

I have a feeling they disable surveys for accounts that are making more money than they want. I'm slowly struggling towards my $30 and then will be canceling my account, which is upsetting because this was a great source of extra income this year.

Inboxdollars is a great survey company, I've been with them for a long time (4 years). Great staff.

a little leary

May 10, 2020 by carol from United States

I have just joined to see how the GPT programs work. I think it might be okay if I just stick to the surveys although they don't pay very much today was the first time I tried paid for reading emails but I don't think I will do that again, within 5 minutes I had 2 phone calls and had 6 emails about ordering things online. I don't know if there is a way of avoiding that when you put down your email address and type in your phone number. I will have to see if just doing surveys will work for me.
