General Information

This is going to be a review about Inbox dollars. I will do my best to explain to you what this program is. Inbox Dollars is considered a consumer survey site where you can earn extra money by completing certain task.

According to Wikipedia this is what they say about paid survey sites in general. If you will notice, it states that paid survey are usually a scam, but legit ones don’t ask for things like credit card information and other personal data. Inbox Dollars is BBB rated at A+ so that should ease your mind a lot. If that’s not enough, how about this, the company has been an award-winning company according to their growth.

Now Elaine, what kind of task are you to complete? I will tell you briefly in this section and go into more detail in the next group. How about I give you just a quick list

  • Surveys
  • Billy’s spin and win
  • Watching video ads
  • Redeeming coupons
  • Playing games online
  • Searching on the web
  • Shopping online

Now we will go into detail about each of these ways.


How Do Earn

*First, you can take surveys where you can earn between 25 cents- $2.00. There are all types of surveys available. First thing you need to do is fill out the profile survey. This way they will know what type of surveys will be appropriate for you.
*Another way is the Billy’s Spin and Win. You will get a free token anytime you are disqualified from any survey. One note, it is best to use this either on the laptop or on the computer because on the mobile it can react in a bad way. For instance, when you spin the wheel, then wheel will tend to move around a lot.

*And watching video ads are another way to earn extra money. You simply click on the video channel and watch all the videos that are there. You can also complete activities at the same time so you can earn prizes just for playing.
*Another is redeeming coupons. Their site does have coupons that give you discounts at the store. But in addition to that, you will get 10 cents back in your pocket for using their coupons.

*Still another income earning task is to play games online or Xbox. Just check out their website for all the available games which are constantly changing and updating.

*Another, is searching on the web to earn extra money simply by installing their search bar. This way you can search on the internet and you will earn 5 cents. I know it doesn’t sound like much but over time it will build up.

*And last, we have shopping online. This is my favorite thing to do when I have money. You simply look online at InboxDollar website to find a store you want, then shop online. For example, I like WalMart so I would look at their website to find WalMart.com. When you shop there you get 2% cash back.
Next we will discuss the success

How Did This Start

The program, as I stated up top, was started by Daren Cotter, a college guy working out of his dorm room. He set up this business as a hobby to reward people for completing tasks online. This “hobby” grew into a thriving business and so they have even branched out in 2012 and created another company in the UK called InboxPounds which employs even more people.
Now we will talk about the numerous ways you can benefit from InboxDollars!

Pros and Cons

This is also the numerous ways you can make money with them. We discussed them but I would like to talk about some again plus give some disadvantages.

Of course, you can always do surveys online but you will need to complete many surveys to earn much money. There is another other survey program that I have reviewed that give a higher pay-out and are still legit such as SwagBucks. I would recommend this company because they are very similar in products offered.


The next topic we will discuss will be the games. You can play games online and on the Xbox as I mentioned before. A number of people have complained that they played for hours but didn’t get paid the correct amount. Again, I would recommend SwagBucks for this.

Now let’s talk about the product support.



How Do You Contact Them

How can you contact them? Well they have many ways and I personally think that is cool. That shows me that they are trying to stay up with the times or as I refer to it.

-You can of course contact them through regular mail at 1295 Northland Dr. Ste 300 Mendota Heights, MN 55120
-Or they have members support contact form online.

-They have a live chat online.

-If you are in the UK, you can contact them through their InboxPounds website.

-You can tweet them at @InboxDollars, @InboxDollarsCor, @InboxDollarsHR

-You can connect linkdin.com/company/inboxdollars

-Or see them at Facebook.com/InboxDollars

As you can see they are really trying to stay up with the times!!

And last, we will talk about their price, not just the price to join but the overall factor of the cost.

Price- Anything Hidden?

Well they are free to join. Yes I said free and they don’t ask for any credit card information up front so that’s good news.

Unfortunately, that can’t be said about some of their third party advertisers. You are re-directed from their surveys to ads that may ask you for more personal information. That’s a little uncomfortable!

Is there anything hidden? Are they upfront about everything? You have asked two questions here so let me answer the second one first. According to InboxDollars when you sign up, you should receive a confirmation email in your inbox. If you don’t then check your spam folder and if it’s still not there then contact them. In one of the many ways I listed above. So, yes they are completely upfront in my opinion.

Now for the first question, is there anything hidden? When I personally tried out this program, I found them to be completely above board with everything. I did like the fact that the site was easy to navigate and all claims made were upheld. When they (the website) stated that you would gain $5 just for signing up, they were correct.
