Online Survey Company Review: Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars Online Survey Company review comes to you courtesy of fellow Blogger Jennifer.  Jennifer shares her yummy recipes on her blog “A Self Confessed Foodie.”

1.  How does this online survey company work?

Inbox Dollars has pay per click emails, surveys, and paid offers as part of their site. You can participate in any combination of these as you choose. The emails arrive directly to your inbox, as do the surveys. Surveys can also be found on their website. The offers can be found on the Inbox Dollars site with the specific details and amount you would get in your Inbox Dollars account.

2.What do you like about how this online company works?

It’s easy to do the ‘click on a paid email’. I can do these while watching TV. Also, you can always see your account and how much you need before you can cash out.

3.What don’t you like about how this company works?

The amounts don’t add up very quickly unless you do the offers or have referrals.

4.Please share your results with this company: How much $$ you have earned, in how much time and how much effort you have put into it.

I’ve made $40 in a year with no effort. It’s not a lot a of money but it truly has been no effort or much time involvement. I’ve mostly done the ‘click on this email’ and maybe 2-3 surveys a month.

5. Finally: Would you recommend this online company to a friend yes or no and why.

I would recommend it as a place to start while you are building up your network of survey sites. I would suggest finding one or two times a day to do your Inbox Dollar ‘clicks’ is easier than doing them all through the day.

  • Rachel

    I have been doing InboxDollars for about 3 weeks now, and I have already earned over $12. It now takes $30 to get a check, so we’ll see what happens.

  • Paula

    I’ve just started using it about 2 weeks ago. I have over $7 in my account already, I believe.

  • Melissa

    Unfortunately my experience was not good. Once I had accumulated enough for the first payout ($10.00), I did what I thought were the correct steps to receive a check…but instead, the company suspended my account and I no longer received any offers, or any communication from them. When I contacted them through the website to determine why, I was told the account was inactivated and no longer qualified for payment. I think I exchanged emails about four times, but then I gave up – I decided it wasn’t worth my effort and chalked it up to a learning experience! I wasn’t able to find a contact phone number to speak to anyone about it.

  • Rae

    I had the same experience as Melissa. I think my total was up to $20 and when I went to have them send the check they lowered the amount I’d recieve b/c they charged me to process the payment…and then never sent anymore emails, deactivated my account, and I never got the money. I know that earning pennies per email adds up, but Inbox Dollars ended up a waste of time for me.

    I have had really good experiences with Inbox Dollars during the 2 years I have been participating with them. They send a cash check to you after $30.00 and do charge a processing fee of $3.00 – I have earned 2 checks in 2 years. This last time they offered to waive the processing fee if my check was for $40.00 and gave me 30 days to earn more dollars. I was able to do that and had no processing fee! In addition, they gave me a $3.00 bonus for cashing the check which is helping me towards my next check.

    • Shabna

      Hii I would like to know how they take he processing fee… will they deduct it from our inbox dollar account or do we have to pay it them thru some any other method…

  • tara

    I’ve been using this website for 2 years now. I’ve never qualified for a survey, not even once! I only have $25 in my account since I only do the e-mails. Right now, I’m just trying to reach $30 so that I can cash out. I’ll never use inboxdollars ever again after I cash out.

    • Katie

      Tara–They have a stipulation that they don’t tell you about when you sign up. You have to keep earning money by doing at least the e-mails or they won’t send the check.

  • laura

    I’ve done it too for about 2 years and have over $50 in my account. I’ve never tried to get a check yet. Maybe I will and see where I get.

  • Katie

    I started with Inbox Dollars in January 2010 as my first survey site. After slowing reaching $30 by doing the e-mails and surveys nearly every day, I finally reached it. Then, they told me that I would be charged a $3 processing fee so I kept going until I got to $33. When I reached that amount, they offered to waive the $3 if I got $40 in 30 days. I slowly made it to $40. I finally cashed out–or so I thought. I submitted my request 2 weeks ago, but my check won’t be processed until May 3rd. I’m not sure if I’ll put much effort into this survey company after I get my check. However, I love Opinion Outpost; I’ve already gotten $45 (only takes about two weeks for a check) and didn’t sign up til February!

  • FX

    A friend of mine tried them a few months back. Same case with Rae – they just suddenly lowered her withdrawable amount and just stopped sending new emails.

  • Kristina L.

    I didn’t have a good experience with them. It took me for ever to reach the 30.00 min. for them to give you a check and like Katie it took for ever to get the check. After my first check I quit.

    I join those of you that are disenchanted with InBox Dollars. I was not happy when I found out you had to have $30.00 before they let you cash out. Now I find out they charge $3.00 out of your pay out to process a check ….these people have no conscious. I have finally reached $19.90 and I am about to just give up and let them keep the money.,,they may even if I continue

    I stopped doing the surveys a long time ago. I don’t work outside of the home so I have time to do these surveys but I feel demeaned that they think my time is worth about 2.00, or less, an hour and then they expect me to take time and give them thoughtful, truthful responses.

    Katie said that Opinion Outpost was good, I agree they are and you don’t have to wait to be paid. Long live Opinion Outpost

    opinion outpost and survey spot are both top of the line!
