It took a couple of months but I cashed out 30 dollars just for a few surveys, daily emails and using their search bar. Easy to do. I recommend them.

Great little panel

Great panel! They have an awesome iOS app with paid emails, surveys, and missions. I have cashed out twice. They send you a debit card. Great panel. Offers credit within 24 hours of completion and surveys credit almost instantly. $30 cash out.

takes too long to acquire enough to cash out

December 10, 2015 by Christopher from United States

It took me 3 months just to make enough to cash out and that was mostly surveys and paid emails. The survey amounts are a joke for the amount of time they want you to complete them in, It's not worth the time but they also keep their promise to pay, Every time! They pay by check, tango gift card, or a physical card.

They are just OK

I have been a member of Inbox Dollars for several years. I click the emails, and I also do surveys. 90% of the surveys I am not eligible for, but for some reason yesterday I made $5 doing surveys on their site. I never make that much. Last time I cashed out in February, I got a check in about a week for about $135, but since that time I have accumulated $90. At least on most of the surveys they tell you right away that you are not eligible. I mainly do them because they pay by check, where as all the other survey companies I work with pay in Amazon GC. They do have a spin to win chance that you can take if you are not deemed eligible for a survey, but the most I have gotten there are three $1 survey tokens.

Not Worth My Time

December 3, 2015 by Bridgette from United States

I Was Also A Member For A Couple Years And Its Very Slow Earnings Even Working At It Every Other Day.Offers Are Not Changed Very Often And The Pay For Each Could Be Higher.Cash Out/Payment Of $30 Dollars is the Highest I Have Ever Heard For A Survey Site.Also No PayPal Just GiftCards.After I Cashed Out I Contacted Them About My Payment And They Were Very Rude And Unhelpful.The Only Plus Is They Have Live Chat.Worst Part Is They Take Money From You For A Processing Fee.Wow, No Thank You.
