A lot of people wonder if Inbox Dollars will really pay before they take them time to register. And I don't blame them — it's a good idea to research stuff like this before you sign up for anything, after all. I have been a member of Inbox Dollars for a few years now, and even though I don't use this site daily, I've managed to earn a little extra money for doing super easy stuff online!
But to answer the question, yes, this site pays and they have been for a very long time. There's a good reason why they are one of the most popular GPT sites on the internet right now — right up there with Swagbucks.
Benefits of Joining Inbox Dollars
- They pay in CASH — no redeemable points. You can see your money add up in dollars and in cents.
- Tons of ways to earn money. You can log in on any given day and rack up some pretty easy money when you're bored online.
- They start you out with $5 just for signing up.
- You get paid with a gift card, virtual or physical Visa prepaid card or you can choose to have a check mailed to you.
- You can get paid every week once you reach Gold level.
- Inbox Dollars is open worldwide.
- No limit on the referrals you can have!
Negatives of Inbox Dollars
Everything has some downsides ….
- The cash out threshold for Inbox Dollars is on the high-side at $30. However some people can reach this within a month or less depending on how often they use the site and how many friends they can refer.
- Some of the offers require a credit card to complete. But honestly this is not any different than any other GPT site, including Swagbucks, and you don't HAVE to do them. There are also plenty of free offers, so I would suggest just sticking with those. Your money will still build up quickly if you do them often.
- You won't qualify for all the surveys you attempt. This is a huge pain — but again it's typical with these kinds of sites and also most survey sites.
Filling Out Offers
Just some quick tips on the offers … if you want to build up money fast on Inbox Dollars, the offers are a good way to do that. As stated above, you don't have to do the ones that require a credit card. Just do the free ones that don't cost you anything. I would recommend signing up for Inbox Dollars with an alternate email that you only use occasionally. You'll get lots of emails from the offers and things you fill out, so just make another email account at Yahoo! or Gmail (you can have more than one at these sites) and use it for filling out offers.

If you are already using GPT sites for extra cash, Inbox Dollars would be a good choice to add to the list of sites you use. Go here to get started.
I think Inboxdollars was one of the very first if not the first site I signed up for trying to make extra money. Can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years but I still use it. I at least click on the paid emails they send and log in every once in a while to check for new offers. It’s nice to get a check for 30 something dollars every once in a while.
I have never received a penny from them. Wanted to see if it worked and so I gave them my email and signed up because they promise $5.00. I then gave completed survey’s that I was promised to make .50 with. The only thing I received was a inbox full of spam (gmail filtered it out) and no way to unsubscribe. I don’t have time for this type of scam that makes somebody else rich and doesn’t pay me for my time.
It’s not a scam. I know many, many people who have been paid. Did you reach the required $30 in your account to request cash out? They won’t pay you anything, even the $5 they give for signing up, until you’ve reached the minimum amount to request a payment. Once you get to $30, you can request your payment and from what I understand they do send it.
I actually planned ahead before applying for inbox dollar because I knew that they were going to send me junks of emails. So, what I did was that I created a separate email address and BOOM, I just solved a problem.

I love InboxDollars. I’ve been paid a few times since I started and I let my money earned build up past the $30 limit for a payout. This way it makes it all seem more worthwhile and who doesn’t like receiving a bigger check? 😉 Right now I’m over $40 so whenever I decide I want my money I’ll request my payout. SO I can personally tell you that InboxDollars is NOT a scam.
I have been paid once in this inboxdollars, I choose debit card as my option. After about three weeks, I received it. It is real.

What are the requirements to get the card?
I have been paid by check already from inboxdollars. One very important key for surveys is to be honest & thereby consistent with your pre qualifying answers. After about a month surveys that fit you will come more regularly.
First thing, create an email account just for inbox.
I’m starting to wonder if it is a scam or not, I reached the 30$ and requested payment. It has been 3 weeks and I have not received any money. Right now I have another $24 on my account but I’m skittish about doing anymore surveys until I get a check. I try to be patient but I’m getting very angry cuz I’m a disabled veteran and need various medicines and I’m starting to think that I got played.. any tips as to what I should do or how to contact them??
Have you emailed them to check on the status of your payment? I know the first payment comes via mailed check and I think it can take a while. Supposedly your subsequent checks will be processed faster. I would email them if I were you and see if they can tell you if it’s been mailed yet.
Jon did you ever receive your payment? I never had any issues with them at all.My suggestion would be contact customer service they are very helpful I think you can chat with them.There should be a phone number also because if a check had been sent and you hadn’t received within a reasonable time they may want to void it out to reissue another one.
Don’t give up on them they are a legitimate company. I have been doing this for several years.There is even another site that does the same offer called Sendearnings.
Hope this helped DON’T GIVE UP !!!!
My husband is a DAV also Marine.
I know this has been several years ago hope you got your check by now
If you click the payment option again it should tell you an expectant date of payment
Yeah I used their live chat last night and they looked into it and said that it was mailed out on the 8th of October and it could take up to a month to get it since I requested payment by visa debit card which I think is bogus considering that the site says 7 – 10 days. So I’m trying to be patient but that is kinda hard to do when I absolutely need the money asap. They said that if I don’t get it within 30 days then contact them again and they will send it out again, and they did say the second check would be quicker. But even still the info they have posted on the site differs from what their representatives say, they really need to edit that because I feel like they are giving false info on the site. It appears to me that they expect ppl to work for them and then get them frustrated to the point where they will quit so they can say that you are inactive and void payment.
Well glad at least they gave you an update. If you’re looking for sites that pay a little faster than Inbox Dollars, here is a list of some other things – http://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com/2012/04/five-sites-for-fast-cash.html
Well I just thought I’d share an update with y’all, I did finally get my first check and just ordered the second one and it is going to be processed within 3 days so the second check is indeed quite faster. I’ve also started doing Slicethepie and have it close to a payout(:

The one thing I hate about inboxdollars is on surveys they say all races are needed but when I mentioned I’m white it says I don’t qualify. It happens every time
Courtney Ann Laytham says
Got a babysitting job but I’ve got InboxDollars on the side. Haven’t reached $30 yet but so far, my experience with InboxDollars has been good. 🙂
Charity Newton says
I started using Inbox Dollars a couple of weeks ago and I’m already at $43+. My goal is to just let it build up over time and then use the extra money for Christmas. I set a goal of $10 per week and I’m already one week ahead of schedule. I only use the site in the evenings when we are sitting around watching television. I get several surveys that I don’t qualify for, but they don’t take that much time. I make a couple of bucks per day with the free emails, the surveys, Winits, using their search engine, and now I’m taking advantage of the cash back awards for shopping. This is not a get rick quick scheme, but if you don’t need the money and are just using it for a few extra hundred dollars a year, its worth the time. Easy and quick to have your dollars add up.
Inbox Dollars claims to pay international users, however NOTHING is accessible if you don’t live in the US. It’s a completely useless site if you live anywhere else.
