There are a number of sites on the web that will pay you to read advertiser’s emails, sign up for offers, and take surveys. I’ve tried about a million of them, but there are only a few of them that I would recommend.
Inbox Dollars is one of those companies and I want to show you how I made $30 in a little over an hour completing offers on their site.
Note: we want to be up front with you on this – Inbox Dollars is a sponsor of The Penny Hoarder. While we genuinely recommend them, we do want you to be aware that they’re a sponsor and are helping to grow The Penny Hoarder as a community.
The way that it works is that advertisers pay InboxDollars.com to promote their site to their members. Inbox Dollars, in turn, offers you a part of their profit in exchange for visiting an advertiser’s website or signing up for their offer. Most of the offers are free and it’s a great way to make some extra pocket change online.
It’s free to join Inbox Dollars and best of all, they give you $5 just for signing up! Inbox Dollars requires that you accumulate $30 in earnings before you can “cash-out” and they pay you by sending a check.
Easy Offers & Tons of Them
One of my favorite parts about Inbox Dollars is that they have a ton of offers to choose from. That makes it really easy to get to $30 quickly.
Some sample offers include one that asks you to sign up for a email newsletter from AMF Bowling. That pays 50 cents and takes about 15 seconds. Another offer asks you to sign up for a free account at Turbotax.com to earn $3.50. These are simple and there are nearly a hundred of them to choose from.
Fastest Way to $30
This is a more advanced method for folks that are familiar with “paid to complete offers” sites. One way to get to $30 in earnings in only a few minutes is by taking advantage of the book club offers.
There are a half a dozen book clubs that are offering $10 if you try out their club. Signing up for a book club does require you to put some money forward which is why I suggest this method for more advanced users.
If you don’t want to continue your membership in the book club, you will need to simply mark “Cancel- Return to Sender” on the outside of your first package and return it to the postman. The book club will give you a full refund and you get to keep your $10 for trying it out.
