If you have the time, It's for you.

August 30, 2016 by Natalie from United States

The thing about survey websites is that you have to have time.. Many of the people on here that have something negative to say don't have the patience. I'm a stay at home mother who has a ton of time on my hands to do surveys, watch videos, etc. Inbox dollars truly has provided a good experience for me, as well some decent extra cash for some easy tasks. Even when I'm not particularly trying, I make at least $50 a month. No, I would not consider it an income. But, it has been convenient to have when I needed extra money. There are people out there just trying to make a few bucks, and this is great for that! I've been with Inbox Dollars for over 3 months now, and have made over $250. And no, I do not have any significant disabilities that are required for most surveys! It's just been very simple for me to make money. Don't be scared by how slow it might be to make money your first few weeks, they have to establish you and match you with specific surveys. You get more and more over time.

Patience pays

I started taking surveys on this portal and was getting disqualified very frequently, but then there were some surveys i qualified and completed successfully... As this happened there came more surveys i qualified for and was able to make close to 70 USD in less then a month... Of course this also payout included earnings from offers.. The payout is prompt as per their schedule and i received a prepaid Visa card on the day it was scheduled.... I continue using the app and website and recommend it as one of the best options for surveys...

Awesome Awesome Awesome !!

They send you emails to look at and you get paid just for opening it up. It's that easy.

Excellent site

I've been a member for about 7 years now and love this place. Not a ton of money, but a SURE way to make some money. 2 surveys per day with the chance for more. One of the best in my opinion!!! I have cashed out here more times then I can count. I will continue here until they kick me out or I die.
