This is an opportunity more for the people who don’t have a blog and need a little extra cash. Inbox-Dollars was featured on Good Morning America as being a reputable money maker for SAHM’s, retirees, and students. I get quite a few searches for this so I thought I would give you my thoughts on it.
Although I am signed up with them, I have never really actually used them. Despite this, I have made enough in the past year to request 6 checks. I am a Gold member. What does that mean? It means I make more per referral now.
All my income through Inbox Dollars is generated via referrals. I currently have 516 referrals. These referrals (bloggers/non-bloggers) make money by doing 5 things:
- Cash Offers—You get credited by completing offers such as stamps.com, ebay, emusic and more.
- Cash Surveys—Just like it says, you get paid by completing surveys. I believe it’s $1 per survey.
- Cash Games—Get paid to play games. I’m not a fan of this because you have to spend way more than you get back.
- Cash Shopping—Pick a merchant, shop & buy, and get up to 40% cash back. This can add up REALLY quick!
Until you reach Gold status, you will receive your checks monthly instead of weekly. By being a Gold member…
Every time a new member joins without being referred by an existing member, a current Gold Member is automatically credited for referring’ the new member. Your Gold Membership guarantees you a portion of this pool of new non-referred members and all the benefits it includes.
You also receive double sweepstakes entries. This a nice incentive for trying to get referrals. You are placed into a random drawing for a number of different prizes.
You won’t get rich with Inbox Dollars but you’ll have some extra pocket money. For the reader who needs every dime they can get, I highly recommend it. For the blog publisher, I recommend the referral program. Once you get a large amount of referrals, you can simply make money off of them. You do have to read emails here and there to insure that you are active or you won’t get paid. You get a signup bonus of $5.
