InboxDollars is a cash-based online rewards club that passes on the revenue it generates from advertisers to its members. By participating in paid surveys, reading e-mails, playing games, redeeming coupons, and more, you can get cashback on your activates.

How InboxDollars Works

Earn cash credited to your account when you complete particular tasks. These include:

  • Using coupons – find hundreds of printable grocery coupons, and earn additional cash back when you use them!
  • Playing games – select from dozens of card, strategy, sports, and word games, and get paid when you play.
  • Shopping cashback – visit the InboxDollars website and get cash back for your purchases from hundreds of merchants including Walmart, Target, Old Navy, and more.
  • Answering surveys – take online surveys when they become available, and earn cash every time you successfully complete a study.
  • Using the toolbar – earn additional cash by using the toolbar for your web searches, and have an easy way of staying informed about the latest free offers, surveys, etc.
  • Reading e-mails – receive emails with special offers, and earn cash when you open some special emails.
  • Referring friends - refer friends and earn 10% of what they earn. Banners and links are provided in your account.

Payment and Rewards

Once your account reaches a balance of $30, you can request a check or a Visa Cash Card.

For non-Gold members, it takes around two weeks for payments to be processed. For gold members, payments are processed weekly. Payments are issued in US dollars, regardless of where you live.

Becoming a Gold Member

Once you cash out for the first time, your account will automatically be upgraded to gold. Gold members enjoy additional perks including faster payments, more sweepstakes entries, more loyalty rewards, and additional referral rewards.

I have been a member of this site for a very long time. It offers different ways to earn. It is a good pass time and after time you can cash in and get mailed a check.

To My Profit!

InboxDollars is just that - Dollars! No points or Sweeps Entries only. Get paid for reading their Survey offering emails to you and get paid for participating in their Surveys. I just rec'd my first Debit Card Payment (after reaching $30.00 in my InboxDollars Account) and used it to buy groceries. It arrived when they said it would. This site is PURE GOLD. Waiting for more emails and Surveys!

Nice place, been there for a long time

They have tons of things here for you to do and twice I got invited to $20/hr focus groups. Games, click ads, surveys of course and sign-up offers.....Also, you can choose check or ATM/Debit card for cash out @ $30. The card is mailed to you in the post and reloads when you cash out next time!:D

In my opinion, this is a great GPT! You can read emails, take surveys, play games, search, add a toolbar to your browser, take free offers and get paid. Been with them a few years, never a problem getting my check when I cashout.
