Product name: InboxDollars


Price: Free

Verdict: Legit. Recommended? Yes and No website is one of those programs that will never make you rich but you can make some money. There are many talks going on the internet about this program and in my opinion though is not a scam but it is very controversial opportunity.

Another question is how much money you can make with InboxDollars. This program like many other similar programs allows you to make money by referring other people to the same website and that’s why you can find a lot of positive reviews on the internet.

Those reviews mostly come from people that want you to join InboxDollars for the same simple reason: they want to make money off of you.

I’m not affiliated with website in any way and that’s why I will be honest in my review. I will explain exactly how you can make money with them, how much and I will also talk about negative sides of the program so you can decide if InboxDollars worth your time and effort.


Pros of

  • Free to join
  • You can make some money


Cons of

  • You will never be rich with this opportunity
  • Some complaints
  • Time consuming process with little reward
  • Payout is by check only
  • You will get a lot of spam


Inside the program

Compared to many other survey programs allows you to earn money through different ways such as reading emails, completing surveys, playing games, watching videos, shopping online etc.

Below I’m going to explain exactly how their program works so you can decide for yourself if you want to join it or not.




Get paid for completing surveys: You can make money by completing surveys through Toluna. Not too many surveys but there some for which you can earn $0.12, sometimes between $0.50 – $1.


Get paid for reading emails: It may sound a little unrealistic but it’s true that you can get paid for reading emails. But it doesn’t mean that you will be paid just for reading them.

You will be paid if you click on the link to an offer contained in this email and if you do so you will earn $0.02. Not a lot and for many people it may sound ridiculous, but that’s the way it works.

You can receive up to 4 emails every day. If you complete an offer you can earn a little more.


Get paid for completing offers: By completing offers you can earn from $0.20 to $10. But keep in mind that not all offers are free and high earnings are usually made with paid offers. Anyway you can make some extra cash.


Get paid for searching the web: This program works the same way as Swagbucks. You install their plugin and add it to your browser and when you search the web you can make money, a few cents.


Get paid for playing games: If you are a big fan of computer games you can play them and earn a few cents just for playing and if you win online tournaments you can earn more than a few dollars.


Get paid for watching videos: In case of watching videos you can earn a few cents at best. referral program: All survey programs allow you to earn money by referring other people to them and the same applies to The more people you refer and the more people stay with InboxDollars the more money you can earn, 10% of their earnings.


How to cash out with The only way to get your money from InboxDollars is by check. Compared to other programs like Opinion Outpost that pays through Paypal, InboxDollars’ approach is a little outdated in my opinion.

There are a few problems associated with this method. First of all, minimum cash out amount is $30 and to earn this amount by completing tasks for which you earn pennies takes time.

To get that check by mail takes some time too. Finally, in my experience, when you take such a check to the bank it takes up to a month or so to receive that money.





Gold Membership: After receiving your first payment you will become a gold member and InboxDollars will give you more referrals for free and from these referrals you can earn more money.

And finally when you create your free account at you get $5 bonus which you can cash out later if you reach a minimum cash out amount.





The bad about

And now I want to share some negative sides of so you can make a well-informed decision.

After creating your account you will have to be active and sign up for various offers on other sites and as a result of that you will start receiving a lot of spam. Just keep it in mind.

The potential of this program is very limited and you should know about it before joining InboxDollars. It applies to all survey sites and this is simply the nature of this type of opportunity. These tasks are very time consuming and poorly paid.

You have to sit hours in front of your computer in order to create accounts at different websites for trial offers. Some surveys may take time up to 30 minute or even an hour to complete them. And for all these efforts you are going to earn pennies.





If this is what you want and expect then go for it. It’s up to you. Look at the images below. These are real comments from real users of From this it becomes clear that you can make up to $60 a month for a lot of effort and time spent online.

I don’t know about you, but for me it’s a waste of time simply because I have my own website, my own business and I’m making much more money than $60 a month.



There are some complaints about InboxDollars and I feel I have to inform you about all these problems associated with the program. Some members had problems such as having their accounts been terminated or being unable to cash out their earned money.

To be honest, I don’t know exactly why all this happened and I don’t know the exact reasons behind these negative incidents but there are some complaints and I think you should know about them before joining

Anyway you can read some of the complaints below and make your own choice.




Some members of InboxDollars have complained of being requested to provide their personal information such as credit card number, bank account details.

Some people have complained for being not credited after completing surveys. The same was reported from members playing computer games.

Some sites partnered with may charge you monthly for using their service. Some people complain that InboxDollars’ support is not always responsive or helpful.

I can’t prove that all this is true but if you do some research on the internet, read some blogs, you will find such complaints.


Final word on

I think there are enough positive and some negative sides about InboxDollars and it’s up to you to join it or not.

If you want to make some extra cash you can try it, but if you want to spend your time more wisely you can try another program absolutely for free and learn how to make a full time income online.

I’ve been a member of this program over the past two years and recommend it.

    I’ve never heard of this program before but it seems legit.

    As you said; I don’t see much potential in it though to make some serious money.

    it might be great to make some money on the side but it is not scalable at all.

    And if you say you will get spammed a lot, it’s kind of a bummer. 🙁

    Good job on the review

      Thank you for your comment Chris. Yes, there is really not much potential in this program. Plus there are certain number of complaints which leads me to a conclusion that this program is not worth your time or effort. If you want to make some extra money there are much better programs such as Swagbucks, linkbucks etc. I think this one is not the best option out there.

  2. Michel says:

    There seems to be a lot of these types of sites on the internet. One such one is Clixsense. All very well for those who have loads of time on their hands to complete surveys, offers and click on links.

    Personally I can think of time better spent. Building your own online business is definitely one of them.

    • Rufat says:

      As for Clixsense it’s a legit program and many people use it to make some extra cash. But I agree that it’s not a good option if you want to replace your regular income. And the same applies to Inbox Dollars. To me it’s a waste of time, but for some others it’s an option to make a few bucks. I think it depends on what you expect from your efforts.

    Hi Rufat,

    Thank you for your review of the InboxDollars(dot)com. 🙂

    This is truly an eye-awakening.. 🙂

    I also agree with you on this aspect, because, we may want to earn money online, but if this could take us a lot of time, and receive just a little, then I think we should think again.. In InboxDollars(dot)com, we could earn money, an extra money.. but I believe, our time is worth more important than the money that we’re gonna earn..
    I might as well go to a legit program where I can do my passion and enjoy what I’m doin’, that also can make me more money and satisfaction, and worth my time as well..

    Thank you for this very detailed review, with pros and cons, and for the comments that you’ve put in as well for InboxDollars(dot)com. 🙂

    This review has been very helpful for many people reading your post.. 🙂

    Have a Wonderful Day, Rufat.. 🙂

      I agree with you. Our time is worth more than making pennies by spending hours and hours. I would better do something more valuable and make more money. And I really do. I recently promoted a product and made $394 just for two days. This is of course a much better way instead of wasting my time on completing tasks from Inbox Dollars and make pennies as if I’m an old man. I personally would not bother myself with this program.

  4. geerie says:

    This is a very interesting review for Inbox Dollars. I don’t think I would ever recommend it to anyone unless it was a little old lady who just loved the joy of making pennies on the internet. It is not for those seeking a real online income. I will say I got my start from messing around with sites like this, which just led me to better and better places.But like your review said it is not scam, but it is also not a money making product either. Love your honesty!
    To your Success!

    • Rufat says:

      I agree that this is a good opportunity for old ladies only. As you can see from the screenshots, some people can make even around $60 per month. Not too much, but still some extra cash for old ladies 🙂
      Of course it’s not a real business and you can’t make enough money and become a full time internet marketer. Many people like you start first with sites like inboxdollars or opinion outpost and the like and then they find better and better places until they find something that can help them turn their passion into a real online business. Anyway, the program is legit although I wouldn’t waste my time with it simply because I can do something more worthwhile and make more money.

  5. Marcus says:

    This reminds me of Swagbucks. You can make some money, but not a lot. Getting paid $0.02 for clicking a link in an email. Surely that’s going to get old and boring very quickly, isn’t it? And earning $0.12 for completing a survey? You were definitely not wrong when you said you wouldn’t get rich! No-one is going to get anywhere near rich by using this. I’m surprised you even half-recommend it actually. You’re right, it’s not a scam as such, but it is also not a viable way to make money online, and people will look at this as a money-making opportunity, and it will disappoint them.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree Marcus. What I don’t like the most about InboxDollars and the like is that it’s very boring and I don’t really think someone can do this consistently until they start making real money. Spending the time in order to be paid pennies is definitely not my cup of tea. People that are involved in affiliate marketing are making thousands of dollars each and every month and keeping this fact in mind and complete these tasks for pennies is not really for me. The only way to succeed in this type of “business” is through writing tons of content and getting it ranked in search engines and then inviting tons of people and building your own list of referrals in order to earn a commission from your downline. This is the only way that makes working with InboxDollars reasonable in some way or otherwise it’s a waste of time. It’s definitely not a scam and for some people it can be very attractive because they don’t have the time to invest in an online business that is time consuming.
