Is Inbox Dollars A Scam? – Here’s My Review On Inboxdollars Paid Email & Surveys

inboxdollars_scam_reviewSo this is gonna be a quick review of InboxDollars, mostly because I don’t believe that this program will make you much money online in the long run.

Notice I said – not much money.

Which means that you will make money (or should I say pennies) if you persist with it – but frankly there’s a lot better ways of making money.

You can see how I earn money online here (income proof).

Anyway …

First off, in my opinion, InboxDollars should rephrase it’s name and call themselves InboxPennies, because that’s about what you’ll make from them.

Delivering papers will probably pay more.

Okay, so I wasn’t intending on dissing them, but look, if you get paid $0.20 for completing a 20 minute survey then – sumthin ain’t right.

So there has been a lot of people recent getting involved in these get-paid-to-read-email scams, and a lot of these programs (on the surface) seem like a cool way to make money, but the reality is –  they’re just time suckers.

They take up all your valuable time for a one off payment.

These programs usually pay peanuts as far as your time and effort is concerned, so keep that in mind when assessing them yourself.

Yes, you can make money completing surveys, but that’s if – and ONLY if you qualify for them, which is where InboxDollars falls short for the vast majority of it’s members.

What is Inbox Dollars?

Inbox dollars is a website that you can join to earn some extra money (although frankly the money should really be termed as pennies) because it does take a while to build up enough money to make a withdrawal.

You can make money in a variety of ways, like playing games, trial offers, taking surveys, referring others and a bunch more.

This site encourages users to register for as many surveys as possible to earn money.

If you have an Inboxdollars account then they will send you surveys to complete.

The number of surveys that get sent to you depends on your individual status.

The company takes a lot of different stats into consideration when deciding who they will send surveys to.

That’s why some people will get more Inboxdollar surveys to complete than others.

One thing you’ll notice when you look online is some folks having a lot of “success” with Inboxdollars, and a lot of folks not having success with Inboxdollars.

And I guess it really comes down to your personal situation.

How Do You Make Money With Inbox Dollars Paid Email & Surveys?

So this is what a lot of folks do – take surveys.

Okay, so that’s easy enough – right?

Just fill out a survey – cool – EASY.

Only thing is – you don’t always qualify for a survey.

But who cares, I’ll just fill out another one until I do qualify.

Only problem is – you don’t know that you don’t qualify until you’ve already spent 20 minutes filling out the pre-qualification questionnaire.

aaarh – with me.

Now imagine being reject 4 times in a row and spending around 20 minutes on each, filling out pre-qualification questionnaires – that’s gotta hurt.

As you can imagine this can be not only time consuming, but extremely frustrating.

You can spend the majority of your day JUST filling out pre-qualification surveys and STILL make NO money.

Summary of Inbox Dollars

There are a lot of unmet expectations after a quick inbox dollars review.

Present members complain that it can take weeks to get your first check in some cases a month or more.

Of course the fact that you are NOT qualified for many more surveys than you are qualified for also is a great source of frustration.

These type of sites make it seem like all you need to do is to take surveys to earn some extra cash but it can be very difficult to find surveys that are interested in your specific demographics which you do not find out until after you fill out lengthy pre survey questionnaires!

Using this site can be a real hassle and ultimately you will very likely only be making a couple of dollars per week that you can put toward your overall earnings.

This is not the best place to make extra money. The amounts that you earn are too small to really add up to anything and the time that you spend taking the surveys (or even finding a survey to take) is wasted time.

There are other ways to make money online and other sites that can help you to earn a real part time income inbox dollars is not that way to go.

  1. michael says:

    I have had the same experience with inbox dollars.
    Not being able to qualify for surveys.
    What other ways can I generate real income on line?
    If you could , point me in the right direction I would appreciate it

  2. Maryann says:

    They keep telling me i have payments coming to me but wont send them in the mail whats the deal?

  3. Phil says:

    It really does work, please consider referring me and receive a large reward by using this link, [removed]

  4. Matthew says:

    Inboxdollars is a scam, they do not like paying the users a dime for all the surveys and spam you collect
    trust me I used there site for 10 days for evaluation purposes to see if I would really get paid for the time and effort i put into the services.
    the only thing I got was my account terminated during the “payment process” and while waiting for my money I was reading there terms of service and they clearly state they do not promise any payments, In fact they also claim to the advertisers that there members are true and honest while taking the surveys, This is in fact is most not likely true, I would like to see the supreme court subpoena there time recorded surveys
    and show both advertisers and consumer how much of a scam this site is.

  5. Zibby Mason says:

    I’ve been a member of inboxpounds (UK version)for almost two years now and only managed to earn som £90 in four payments, most of it from paid offers like bingo and other rubbish. I have to admit their surveys sucks, not only being potentially low paid, but also due to extremely low possibility of qualifying to get paid. And than you have to double check what you do, I just got one completed a couple of weeks back, spend some 40mins on it as it was promised to pay £2.00, got qualified and than I only got paid £0.20 a couple of days later. Also they don’t seem to pay for radio loyalty captchas any more.

  6. erin Fisher says:

    Your review made me crack up laughing “inboxpennies” thats honestly what it should be called. You never qualify for a survey. Theyll make you take the whole thing thing when your almost done they tell you..sorry but you didnt qualify for this survey. Ive spent 30mins on a survey to be told I didnt quality. The only way to make ‘money’ on this site is to actually spend money on their offers. My spam folder is soo full because of this site its ridiculous. I still have yet to reach my first $30. Based on other reviews ive read it could take months just for them to pay me. Once I do finally get my money im done with them. Maybe ill try one that actually values their subscribers.

  7. Brandon says:

    No one is going to pay you significant money for easy work. If you do the searches every day. Do the 3 surveys they offer everyday and click on the paid emails you end up getting to their 30 threshold in 2 to 3 weeks.

    • Angi says:

      I guess this Inbox Dollars must be for people that have nothing to do with their time or really believe they could actually make any kind of money doing this. If it isn’t classified as a scam it should be classified as a total RIPOFF. I read all their terms and agreements, which basically said, we can change the rules at any time and without notice, everything in there was not about protecting you, but rather how they have the upper hand on you. If you took this to your attorney he would tell you no way, right down to giving up your privacy rights.
      But one thing that seems to truly puzzle me, and that is this….How Valuable is your time?? Isn’t your time worth more than .07 cents an hour?? Based on Brandon’s comment above and this is within the 2 week shorter time frame, take a look at the breakdown here;
      If 1 Survey takes 30 mins. times 3 a day = 90 minutes a day times 7 days a week for 2 weeks is 21 hours divided by 30.00=.07 cents and hour….Really??? That’s a no brainier… even if your doing it for fun, I think I would find a better way. Just Saying!! Hope this helps someone somewhere to see it for what it really is.

      • Norrie McClure says:

        I think you need to work on your math skills. Try $30.00 divided by 21 to get the correct amount.
        Still not much money, but a huge difference from your calculating.

    Here’s my experience with InboxDollars. I was a member for over 5 years. I cancelled my membership about 3 years ago. Frank is right. They should’ve called themselves InboxPennies, and that’s exactly what it’s worth, pennies. I didn’t take a lot of surveys because you won’t qualify for many of them. I also didn’t do any of the trial offers because I don’t trust giving out my credit card info to these crooks, plus I was looking to make money, not spend it. But, I did all of the paid emails, and they amounted to about 3 or 4 cents per paid email. The minimum payout is $30. I made about $2 or $3 a month. Now you do the math on this one. I remember it taking about 12 months or longer to reach payout of $30! I even signed up a few referrals and never made anything; I guess they figured it wasn’t worth their time. InboxDollars should be shut down. Getting paid pennies is a direct insult to anyone’s intelligence. There are too many of these type companies that sucker you into believing you’ll make some decent money. Nobody’s trying to get rich, but at least a real part-time job will pay you about 200 bucks a week. We all have been bamboozled and hoodwinked.

  10. Amber Berman says:

    Hi Frank,
    I have to respectfully disagree. InboxDollars won’t make you rich, but there are a handful of great cash offer sign-ups on the site. I made $40 over the course of an hour right after I signed up. I will say that I’m now to the point where my options are mostly to make pennies, but hey that $40 covered my internet bill for the month. Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading your review and I definitely do agree that there are better ways to make money online. Thanks for the post!

  11. Betty says:

    I’ve been an inbox client for over 4 years and has NEVER encountered a problem when cashing out, nor have I ever had a problem cashing any of their checks. Making real money is like biting bricks. About one cents every 4-5 hours it seems. Maybe, I got plenty time to WASTE….only I wish.

  12. stella says:

    i am a member of the site myself and it has taken about a year just to get up the 30 dollars required to check out, in my opinion it’s not really worth it at all getting into this site

  13. Tami Camp says:

    I have received about 5 checks but it does take way too long to get to the minimum payout of $30.
    I’m just 2 cents away from my last $30.
    I’m quitting! You do 10 – 20 minutes of a survey then it says you weren’t a good match for it! When I first joined up I did make $$$ but I paid to try a lot of offers I wanted to try anyway. At least this way you do GET some of your $$$ back doing the offers.
    I just don’t have any $$$ to do the offers anymore. Time to get my last $30 check and get the heck out of dodge.
    Take my advice….you are better off not signing up for Inbox Dollars.

  14. Tina says:

    I’ve made about $50 through InboxDollars, but it’s taken me about 8 months to get there. I’m done with this website as soon as I get this payout

  15. Tani says:

    I’ve been a member for 6 months.. Read emails , did the cash offers for places like sophora and the body shop, videos the radio thing just be told because my account only makes money off the emails I am no longer allowed to receive paid emails. Neither am I allowed to watch the videos and the radio app doesn’t work anymore.. And the offers I do make money on they have removed.

  16. Victoria says:

    I’ve been a member for a year and a half, maybe?

    I definitely agree, you will make next to nothing if that through the use of InboxDollars. Qualifying for surveys is rare and the only way to make money consistently is opening e-mails, which will give you pennies. Almost adding insult to injury, you can only cash out once you reach a balance of $25!

    Even more embarrassing for this service is that their website is bugged and is unusable unless accessed through the mobile app, which itself is nothing to write home about in terms of usability.

  17. Victoria says:

    I’ve been a member of InboxDollars for at least a year which is what it took to me to just get to $30. I didn’t mind clicking the emails but once I hit $25 or so, I stopped getting “paid emails”. So I forced myself to do surveys. Once I reached $28 it was 3-4 days before I even saw another survey offered (besides the 4 that are always there “peanut labs” etc). I finally hit $30 and cashed out but if course there was another hoop to jump through, they tell you that your account must “remain active” until a certain date (March 2nd) for me. Who knows what counts as active to them, so I continue trying to qualify for surveys hoping that counts, otherwise in officially done with them like so many. I was just shocked at how difficult they make it.

    MyPoints isn’t as shady as them and isn’t as difficult. I’ve been clicking emails for 5-7 years (they offer surveys too but I only click emails) and cannot even remember how many gift cards I’ve gotten from them (a lot in that many years). Not once did they stop sending emails once I got to a certain amount of points. I can quit at any time after cashing out too, unlike InboxDollars who forces you to stay active until your payment is sent.

  18. Jeri says:

    They owe me $30 and have for almost a year. They are just a big scam.

  19. RPLA says:

    InboxDollars is one of the worst programs. Unlike others, they have a very short “6-months of inactivity and we’ll close your account and keep your money” term. Plus, you earn next to nothing. I too stopped getting paid emails and tried to unsuccessfully qualify for surveys. As such, I mostly did the big-ticket things, like signing up for money back on donations to charities. I accrued $98 and log in monthly to avoid the “inactivity” thing. But, guess what? They just closed my account for not completing anything in six months. They don’t even hold up their own definition of “activity”. So, user beware–withdraw when you can, even though UNLIKE the other programs, they charge a 3% fee on what you’ve earned. Sketchy, sketchy, sketchy.

  20. Just ME says:

    In my opinion, Inbox Dollars is a scam. After registering and wasting hours upon hours to make a few cents I started receiving a swarm of emails, 83 in one day to be exact, from the companies I was questioned about in the surveys. Not to mention an abundance of calls from unknown numbers. What an invasion of privacy! This is not worth the hassle. Be smart and don’t fall for this one!

  22. jeff says:

    I made about $280 over the 1st 4 months after joining. But I quickly learned that the higher the $ for a survey, the less likely you to qualify for it. So I would only do the 25 cent ones and only if I had an additional 25 cent spin. So a 10minute survey would pay 50cents but you are almost 100% assured of qualifying. I too got tired of getting to the end of survey, only to be disqualified for entering the demographic info. I was “watching” videos, because i found that some just looped,so if i was cleaning or cooking, I could turn them on for background noise. I made too much that way, so I was disqualified from watching additional videos. The offers are mostly scams, but not all of them. Again, the higher the payout, the more likelihood of not getting it. I eventually just ran out of ways to make money,and stopped all together. Put inboxpennies is a hilariously accurate description. I ended up making about $2-3 an hour. Another bad thing is that if you do make more than $300 in a calendar year, they want your tax info, and I wasn’t willing to give them that.

    • Pare says:

      Yeah I agree with you 100%. They manipulate of how much videos you can watch, etc. I’m so pissed that I got to $38.25 and they told me and my roommate that closed our accounts because we are only allowed one account per household. That’s BS. I don’t have anything to do with my roommate’s account.

  23. Norrie McClure says:

    I print the coupons from Coupons.com through Inbox Dollars. You earn $0.10 for every one you redeem. I also do my internet searches through ID. Still takes a while, but it will add up.

  24. Leda Roberts says:

    Their request payment page is broken and they are refusing to pay me the money I earned. They keep telling me to clear the cache. I’ve tried 3 different browsers, cleared all caches and restarted the computer. I guess they are a rip-off.

  25. Kandra says:

    I agree. It does take awhile to build up money, especially when doing surveys and paid emails. I shop a lot online and it adds up much quicker when you link it through inboxdollars. Also, I do print up the coupons and receive (it does take awhile to process) .10 per coupon. It has taken me 2 years but I have over $206.00 to claim. I, previously, have claimed and received $53.00.

  26. Emily says:

    Rip off. I referred a couple people to Inbox Dollars that lived close to me and they closed out all of our accounts saying we were all in the same location and the same person. We provided IP addresses and even went to as far as asking if we could provide identification to show proof and of course it was negative. Lost a total of about $31. As for my neighbors probably the same or close to the same..

  27. Pare says:

    Me and my roommate had both accounts and used the same PC. they told us we can only use one account. it doesn’t make any sense because it’s not like we are using each other bank accounts, etc. inbox dollars also manipulates with how much money you can earn per surveys. if you make a couple of bucks one day, i guarantee you, you will not qualify for any surveys the next day! it’s all bogus. SCAM!

  28. Erick says:

    Honestly I’ve been using this app for a less than 1 year and have thus far made more than $150. Don’t do the surveys unless the title is specific and you know the market they are searching for. But they are a waste of time!!!I just use the TV part of the app. I use to be able to make $2 a day just with that, but they lowered it to 50 cents. I use this app while I’m at the office or in school. Just leave it playing and have your phone make money while you’re not using it. You don’t have to actually watch it. That’s where everyone is getting this app mixed up. It’s not a waste of time if you’re not actually paying attention and doing something else productive. I don’t think about $.50-$1 a day but making $30 a month and $360 a year for doing nothing.

  29. Tracy says:

    Not a scam, but you don’t make much. I have cashed out around 300 so far and at another 100 now. I started about a year ago.

  30. Mauli says:

    Inbox dollars are wicked and rogues. They deleted all my 16$ when I asked for pending points for downloading a fame app.. please don’t fall for this trap and waste your precious time. Try swagbucks instead, they are legit and pay as less as 3$ also..

  31. jay bones says:

    Not a scam. But it can take a long time to cash out, and then they deduct a few dollars as a fee. I’ve received a few checks from them over the years, but you certainly need patience and persistence.
