I might be a tiny bit addicted to cooking shows, which is ironic since the take-out local Chinese restaurant knows me by name.

I don’t actually use any of the cooking tricks I see on TV, but there’s something relaxing about watching someone else do the cooking, even if it includes Gordon Ramsay yelling in the background.

That’s why I was pretty stoked to find this new hack: InboxDollars is offering users the chance to earn money, simply by watching cooking shows through their video channel.

Ummm… Get PAID to watch cooking shows? I can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy day!

Here’s what you need to know if you want to spend your weekend watching cooking shows and getting paid:

Watch Cooking Shows, Get Paid

InboxDollars’ video channel lets you earn SBs for watching a variety of shows — including cooking shows.

(Never used InboxDollars before? Here’s our guide for beginners.) They give you $5 just for signing up and watching your first video. 

Just log in, watch the short videos and claim your bucks.

You need to watch all of the shows in a specific playlist to earn your bucks, so be prepared. InboxDollars lets you know how long the playlist runs before you start watching, and playlists range from a few minutes to about a half hour.

What kind of shows are available? You can learn about anything from sushi to Indian food to eating organically.

One of the videos teaches you how to make sandwich kebabs by stacking your favorite sandwich ingredients, like cheese cubes, salami and cherry tomatoes, on a kebab stick. Now that’s the kind of cooking I can get behind!

And it’s actually possible to earn up to $225/month watching these videos!
