Inbox dollars

April 22nd, 2008 at 02:44 pm

For the past two years, I have been a member of Inbox dollars. It took me a whole year of reading their ads, to earn my first $30. (And they keep $3 of that for s & h)
This past year, it took me 15 months to get to the $30 range. (you can't redeem any earlier) I requested a check on March 15th, but they will not send it until May 1st.
I have decided to drop out of Inbox dollars when my check arrives. It is just not worth having to read 1000 ads to get $27.
I like NFOmy survery very much and Pinecone also. I just did a pinecone survey yesterday. They send their checks out immediately.
I won 4 games of mahjong yesterday and the braves won last night, so that is $5 to add to my challenge money.
Prev. total $6903.00
today 5.00
new total $6908.00

    Yes, it's taking me a long time to get to $30 with Inbox Dollars, too. I received a $27 check from them a long time ago but it seems like I NEVER qualify for any surveys anymore either.

    I have never done a survey and it seems like a waste of my time.

    I know, I'm sticking with Inbox Dollars long enough to get that first $27 so that I haven't completely wasted my time, then I'm out. is better; you get 5 points for clicking on an e-mail, and with as little as 1400 points you can order a $10 gift card to a store or restaurant. They occasionally have surveys and you get 10 points for trying to qualify, more if you complete the survey. And if you ever do any online purchasing, do it through them and get points for something you would have bought anyway. You just have to click to the merchant site through their site when you go to buy in order to get the points credited. (Oh, and they don't charge you points to ship the card; I can't believe Inboxdollars does that! What a ripoff! Reading 100 e-mails just to pay to ship the check!)

    Even just mostly clicking e-mails, I'm getting my 3rd $10 gift card soon; and I still haven't gotten my first $30 from InboxDollars even though I joined at the same time.

    I'll have to try Pinecone...

    I completely agree that InBoxDollars is a waste of time. And that $30 isn't even $30 because they take out a $3 fee! MyPoints is much faster, and doesn't require clicking through two different sites to get the points. Pinecone would be good if they didn't discriminate so heavily against older white folks. An AA friend of mine (I DID get referral points for her!) does quite well on it, even though we're the same age.

    Yeah I am cancelling that one after I get my check as well. Not worth the inbox clutter. $3 to go...

    It is very hard to sign up for pinecone. You have to get a link from someone to sign up. NFOmysurvey is a good one and they pay out in $10 checks. E mail me if you want me to refer you to that one. juliedenski @ and leave out the spaces.

    I've been a member of a survey site for a while now. I take surveys and for each one (limited to one daily)I complete, I get $1 credited to my account. And then, of course, I get 0.03 for each ad I look at.

    Granted, they have a referral program, too, so if I was to submit your name and email, they would send you an invite to join.

    IMO, it's worth it to stay with this one. I've earned some nice-sized checks, considering all I have to do is a survey a day, and if I qualify (this is super easy) and complete it, that's $1. If you complete one survey a day, in one month you would be able to get a check. You have to earn a minimum of $30 before you can receive a check.

    I signed up with Inbox Dollars and it was a waste of time. It would take forever to receive $30.00. The only way to get money is to spend money on their products. I also took a survey and didn't qualify. Anyway, they send out too many emails - most of them insurance ads. I was with them 2 weeks and cancelled. It took 1 1/2 hours last night to accrue .50 cents. Good riddance!
