I was worried it wouldnt work

October 15, 2017 by STEPHANIE from United States

I joined inbox dollars probably about a month and a half ago . I join and gained about 15 dollars then I thought to myself I wonder if this is just a scam so I looked online for reviews and a lot of them I saw were negative ones about people not getting there money or there accounts being turned off after reaching the 30 dollar mark. I thought id push threw and try for myself after my dad saying usually people only leave reviews if it didn't work for them . I'm glad to say so far everything has gone smoothly for myself. I have gotten 2 prepaid visa cards in the amount of $27ish dollars. I did the virtual prepaid visa cards where they were sent to my email I just put in my third collection payment last night which was oct 14th I should be getting payment for that on oct 18th. I'm very pleased with this company !!!! I only have great things to say. There was a few surveys that kicked me back after spending 15mins on but if you can over look that its really a great way to earn a little bit of cash every week!!!

great survey opportunity

I've been a member for many years. I cashed out once before with no problem. Now my account is more than double the cash out amount, requested a Tango card two months ago at the same time I cashed out at SendEarnings (a sister site which paid me already), and Inbox hasn't paid me yet. Although I was able to log in at the time I cashed out, now all of a sudden they are not accepting my login nor allowing me to reset my password. I can't open any paid emails. The only thing I can do is surveys or searches. They don't answer my emails. Ive even written by snail mail. In the meantime they keep changing my payout date making it later and later. I don't know what's going on with them. I don't like it and they're holding my account hostage. I would not recommend them anymore.

Update: I contacted the Online Better Business Bureau and already got a reply from Inboxdollars. Part of the problem was I was having difficulty accessing my account from my laptop. We have been able to rectify the situation and my payout is being processed.

Second Update: All problems have been resolved. Customer service was excellent. And I received my total payout yesterday! I am very pleased.

Love, love, love
