Inbox Dollars Experience
Inbox Dollars allows you to earn money through surveys; I completed a couple surveys just for Inbox Dollars (profile surveys) and have been attempting to complete some of the daily surveys. Inbox Dollars states that they offer new surveys on a daily basis. However, so far, every time I attempt a survey, I'm told I'm "ineligible". This may or may not be a bad thing; perhaps I'm truly not qualified for every survey I attempt; but after answering 5-7 pages of questions, it seems that I already did the survey, just not getting paid for it. But, I'll update you on this one.
Getting Paid to read Emails
Inbox Dollars sends out emails that they pay $0.02 when you read them. In the past 7 days, Inbox Dollars has only sent out 22 emails, which is only $0.44. So, you're not going to get rich with Inbox Dollars, but it could be an option to bring in a little extra.
Inbox Dollars Cash Offers
The other offers pay more, but require you to sign up for things that, honestly, I'm not really interested in signing up for. For example, I've seen credit card offers that if you apply (AND get approved) Inbox Dollars pays you $15. I don't like to do these offers, simply because you usually get a lot of spam...my suggestion is to get a separate email address for signing up for these offers, so you don't get 1000's of spam every day!
I haven't been paid, as they do have a minimum payout requirement of $30 and I only have $6.44, so I can't tell you yet if Inbox Dollars is legit or not. I will continue to keep you updated on the status of my account with Inbox Dollars.

I recently read about Inbox Dollars on another website; it was a review written by another mom. Inbox Dollars is a place that pays you to read your emails. According to the review, they actually do pay out, so I thought I would give them a try.
I checked out their website (the link is above). Inbox Dollars offers a few different ways to earn money:
- Cash Offers;
- Cash Surveys;
- Cash Games;
- Cash Shopping;
Inbox Dollars Cash Offers
Inbox Dollars offers different incentives to try their advertiser's products. Some pay out as much as $20 or more, but usually require you to purchase something, or get a free trial (which requires a credit card). I personally don't like doing these types of offers, as I usually lose track of what free trials I have with whom, and end up with numerous charges to my credit card. So, I won't be trying any of these types of offers.
Inbox Dollars Cash Surveys
In the three days since I've signed up, I have tried doing several of these surveys. So far, I answer a few screens of questions, then I am told that I don't qualify for that survey. There are some account surveys that earn you a quarter if you do them; other than that, I haven't had any luck taking surveys. I will continue to try, and update you as I go!
Inbox Dollars Cash Games
So far, the games I've played through Inbox Dollar's cash games have been through WorldWinner. You upgrade your account on WorldWinner, and get a match up to $20 in your game account. Then you play online for real cash, and they have a ton of games available.
Inbox Dollars Cash Shopping
This part is probably my favorite! Inbox Dollars will credit your account for a certain percentage of the purchase price when you shop at the stores listed. For example, shopping on Ebay earns you a 1% cash back, added to your Inbox Dollars account. How much easier can it get?? You know how much shopping I do on Ebay??
So far, I have earned $6.10 through Inbox Dollars. $5 of this was for the signup bonus, the rest was from surveys and read emails. I don't believe I am going to get rich through Inbox Dollars, as most surveys pay $.50, and the emails pay $0.02 for each one you read, but it will be nice to have another source of income. I will update when my account reaches $25 and I can request payment.
Does anyone have experience with Inbox Dollars? If so, please share!
