InboxDollars is okay so far. What is your experance with them? They have a $30 payout minimun payout and it seems like it takes a while to get there. Plus they pay by check not by paypal. (I didn't realize that before I signed up) So have you tried it - did you get paid - what are your thoughts??? Thanks!!!

I have been with inbox dollars for over a year. I don't do any of the surveys~ I use to try them, but got 1/2 way threw and then I wasn't eligible to complete them, so I was frustrated and gave up on them. I don't do the offers either, only the paid emails. It took me just over a year to finally make the $30 mark. Now they say I will get my check in September. I figure it really took practically no work to make this money...but it did take forever to hit the $30. I dont' know if I am going to stay with them...I will decide after I get paid.

I ran into that same thing, everytime I would try to complete a survey, I wasn't eligible.

I was able to compete a few. So I guess I'm doing okay. Right now I have 786 in my account so I am hoping to at least get pay out and we will see what happens from there!

Yep I tried it. I should be at about 16 bucks now. I think the best way to make the payout is to shop or play games from there. I've seen some other discussions who claim they earn 2-3 bucks for playing games in one day.

Don't you have to upgrade to get paid for the games??

I don't know, it's just what I read here somewhere. I didn't check it out yet.

I have been with them for about 3 months, I have somewhere close to half of the pay out rate so far, but I have used them for a couple links to shopping I would have done online anyway and to sign up to some of the freebie sites. It is only a penny here and a dime there, but if it is easy and doesn't take much time even 30 extra a year is an extra gift at Christmas bought and paid for.

I use my upromise for all my shopping as I like getting the money in that account for my daughters college 18 years from now LOL (Starting early). I haven't done too bad so far but it just seems to be a lot of work for nothing.

I know what you mean. I use my Upromise for my grocery shopping at Winn-Dixie and Albertsons, but haven't use it only yet. I just opened an account about 2 months ago. I guess I keep thinking even if it comes a few pennies at a time pretty soon you have a dollar and .... I started a keep-the-change savings account at our bank and within 3 months we have accumulated about 60 dollars which the bank will match and that is just from the rounding up of anything over a dollar spent in the check cards.

I just recently requested my first payout from Inbox. It took me well over a year to reach the minimum payout, and like you if I had realized they only paid by check, I would have thought twice about it before signing up. The other thing is, I had already decided to stop going to Inbox once I reached and requested my payout, however, you have to keep responding in order to get your payout. And it will have taken over a month for my payout to be sent. So I'm staying active until I get that check and then I'll close out my account there, even if it means loosing a few cents.
