What Is InboxDollars?
Inbox Dollars is an app for smartphones that offers surveys, little games, paid offers, and etc. for you to do. Upon completion of these simple tasks, you get monetary rewards. Inbox Dollars is NOT A SCAM, but it won’t make you rich.
I’ve been playing it for a while now. After about 7 weeks, I was able to load my first reward, a $50 gift card to Amazon.com. I spent the money on the card and received the orders, therefore, I can only assure you its value is legit.
You need to be 18 years old to use the app and receive rewards. The other requirements are pretty standard. Nothing major. You’ve got nothing to lose.
Now you’re looking at what can be a pretty fun and not-too-demanding app. There is much you can do to earn rewards, but if you neglect InboxDollars for a few days or even weeks, you will not be punished. Your rewards aren’t going anywhere. Even if you uninstall the game, your rewards remain for at least six months. To get rid of them, you actually need to cancel your account or be inactive for over half a year.
Start by trying a survey. The various survey options tell you about how long it should take to complete, and what the reward is. Don’t dismay if you don’t qualify or if you get booted from a survey. This simply means the criteria the company hosting the survey was looking for is already filled, when it comes to people with your qualifications. Keep trying, they’ll let you know if you’ve done a bad thing.
Surveys can also become repetitive. You’ll find yourself answering the same questions over and over; it’s this way with all survey sites. You’ll get used to it. InboxDollars will occasionally ask you questions about your location and income, etc., so it can help you find better surveys. Play along. Gift cards await after you’ve been patient!
Billy’s Spin And Win
Don’t worry if you keep disqualifying for surveys. You get a spin for each time your booted. You can save up to 100 spins at one time. Be sure to use them. Just click the Spin button on the wheel, the little number that pops up, then the wheel spins and you can win a variety of prizes.
Most likely you’ll progress toward the scratch-off card, but money is available. Just click away. That’s pretty much what InboxDollars is all about – a bunch of clicking.
Not the savviest of search engines, per se, but it gives you points toward the scratch-off card. Ask at least four unique questions per day. Do this for a week straight and you’ll get a bonus 50 cents afterward. Easy and simple.
As the name suggests, InboxDollars will occasionally send you paid emails, which you can also open from inside the app, itself. Click on the email. Then toward the bottom, you’ll see a pink box that says Confirm This Paid Email. Click on that and you’ll be taken to a site wanting you to buy or invest in something.
You don’t need to do anything else. If you are interested, keep going and earn more rewards; otherwise, just go back. You’ll get points toward the scratch-off ticket.
Right now there are only five games to pick from: Monkey Bubble Shooter, Pet Hop, Candy Jam, Giant Hamster Run, and World of Words. The last one is my favorite since I love word games. You may find one or more to be quite addicting. None are too difficult.
Playing games adds points to the scratch-off card.
Like it sounds; you go to a page showing you various channels that have pink WATCH buttons. Watch as long as you want for points on the scratch-off ticket. You pick between Trending, Celebrity, News, Entertainment, Tech, Food, and Health.
InboxDollars is able to reward you because of the rewards it gets from all those ads! Ads are what keep most of these little apps in business. It’s not like you have to watch the actual ads, or even the videos. However, a link will pop up from time to time wondering if you’re still watching. Be sure to click on it so you can keep your rewards.
Paid offers include things like signing up for Hulu or joining the Uber driver program. These rewards can seem awesome, but if you really aren’t interested in Hulu, it’s ultimately a waste of money. The reward won’t pay for the service or item you’re signing for.
If you were thinking of trying Hulu or joining Uber anyway, why not go through the offers and get a reward for doing what you were going to do anyway?
There are other ways to add to your rewards that you should look into: Winit codes, which can be elusive; friend referrals, watching videos, etc. There is a website, plus an app for mobile users. To find some of these ways to earn rewards, you’ll have to dig through the support center. It’s worth the trouble. Once you get used to it, there’s no trouble at all.
This is free, after all. A little digging is no big deal.
What Is This Darn Scratch-Off Card?
It’s something I completely forgot how to use for the first two months of having InboxDollars! And I still got that $50 gift card! When the bar at the top of the card is full of color, click on it, AS SOON AS it gets full. Scratch the big pop up card and win your elaborate prize!
Okay, well, it’s usually 5 cents, but it’s quick and it adds up. I probably missed out on a whole dollar! Of course, there is the potential to win much more, but like with physical scratch-offs, the small rewards are far more common. I could’ve missed out on $100 or more, but I try not to dwell on that.
Is It Worth Downloading?
Definitely! At least it is in my opinion. How could it not be? I got the gift card and will soon be ready for another. If you’re desperate for quick money, this isn’t going to make your car payment. Still, after a month or two of clicking, that gift card can be a fun treat.
You aren’t stuck with gift cards, though. If you prefer, you can get actual money put in your PayPal or personal bank account. There are better and worse easy money apps out there. My personal take: highly recommended!
- Simple to use
- Can actually be fun
- There is a choice in how you get paid
- No big deal if you skip it for a while
- You need $30 before you can withdraw rewards
- Some of the options aren’t as easy to find
- Surveys get repetitive and boring
