I got my first check from InboxDollars in the mail yesterday!

InboxDollars is a “GPT” site.  GPT stands for get paid to and is commonly referred to websites that reward you for certain internet activities.

At Inbox Dollars you can get paid to do the following:

  • Read and click on emails
  • Searching the web
  • Completing free and paid offers, including email sign-ups, free trials, product or service purchases
  • Playing online games
  • Watching videos
  • Printing and redeeming coupons
  • Taking surveys
  • Referrals
  • Toolbar

I just redeemed my first $30, from which a $3 fee was deducted, so my check was $27.07.  I was offered the opportunity to have this fee waived if I waited to cash out at $40.  However, my friend Sharon recommended I go ahead and cash out so I could get gold member status.

With gold membership, I get portion of the pool of members who are not linked to a referral, double sweepstakes entries, and weekly payments once I reach the threshold.

I’m currently up to $7.47, just two weeks after redeeming my first check.  If I take a few surveys, I’ll be able to redeem again in just a few weeks.


That’s an extra $30 per month, which adds up to $360 per year if I play my cards right.  Your own results may vary and depend on the level of participation.

If you’re ready to take the plunge with InboxDollars, sign up here!
