Cash Crate and Inbox dollars? Do you like them? I just signed up last night via referral links from another Mylot user. I am not so sure about making money on these sites. I do believe they are legit and are going to pay , but I am not sure what I can really do to make money. Cash Crate has a min payout of $20. So far I made $1.50, I got $1 just for signing up. I did two "offers", but I do not like doing them. They ask for so much personal information, of course I never give out my credit card, but I hate giving out my phone number just to get $0.25 . Do you guys use this site? Are you overwhelmed with telemarketing calls?? The other site Inbox dollars it has $30 min payout...I got $5 just for singing up ! Another $1 to finish my profile. Well that's all I have so far $6.04. I did a $4 offer, but I am still waiting for payment. Any thoughts about this site? I think I may like it better, but I am not sure. If you are interested to sign-up please check my profile for the links.

I am a member of inbox dollars, I hve been for several months now, and I am over 16.00 now, it has been slow going but i think it will be worth it when I do make payout... LOL cash crate I know is a gpt site...I am already at one for now and I am learning the ropes there, I dont want to be a part of too many of them as they have alot of the same offers and I dont want to get to mixed up with where I signed up with what... LOL that can get a little confusing.. good luck with both sites and let us know how you do.. happy mylotting.

I know what you mean. I think I will stick with these two for now and see how it goes. I even noticed Inbox and Cash Crate already having similar offers and well you can only do each offer once of course.

yes i belong to inboxdollars and you are right it only has a 30 payout but it does take a long time for payment on offers to be credited to your account and when you do reach payout they send you a check i have received one and the best way to make money on this site is to do as many offers as you can because when you do the paid emails you only get like one 1cent for each one that you do but i belong to anothe site that pays you 5 cents for every paid email and the payout on there has 2 choices of how you want to get paid by check its 35 dollars and by paypal its 100 dollars but they charge 3% of what the balance is. and yes they do pay you i have received a check from them and am on my way to receiveng my second one.

I'm a memeber of inbox dollars I know that it takes awhile to get the 30.00 payment but they pay you for every e-mail that you read plus if you qualify for a survey that they e-mail then you'll recieve anywhere from .50 to 1.00. I got paid from them before. I'm close to payment again.

I am a member of both sites. I have reached payout on Inbox dollars about three times and cashcrate twice. Both sites are OK, but I really didnt like the Inbox dollars i about a year ago they changed the prices on their survey stuff from 1.00 to fifty cents. Alot of their surveys are long also. I think that they are worth at least a buck. So I have refused to do them since that time.

Yes I'm a member of InboxDollars and I've actually been paid by them I think it was like twenty six dollars and some change or something like that but I think it's a pretty good website. I'm also a member of cashcrate and I haven't been paid by them because I haven't reached payout yet but I know that I'm pretty close. I think that cashcrate is a legit website but there are probably more people here that can shed some light on it.

If you don't like it probably you should discontinue with it immediately ........ remember you may need to work regularly for quite some time if you want to reach a minimum payout level and honestly if you dislike the work then chances are more you will discontinue with it at some point of time. Also giving out personal info is just not a great idea. So just be cautious. Take care.

I know nothing about Cash Crate but I did join Inbox, isn't for me because I am an International member so they can not offer me much, I can not ever imagine that I would make minimum payout. I did make the $5.00 signup and $1.00 for filling out my profile but that is about it. Even if I wasn't an International member I probably wouldn't make it as I am like you I do not like filling out for offers, much too personal and I would never give out my information so easily. Good luck to you though and hope it works!

I found a way to make money on cash crate without providing my phone number and it is working for me. I wrote a blog about it, it is on my profile page if you are interested. You still have to provide a US address I think, so I guess you would not be able to since you are not in the US.

No, I am not after these money making sites for most of them are scams and nothing better than that. Here at mylot though money making is a hard task but I am happy that every month I make it to 10 to 12 dollar and this is ok for I get more knowledge from the the discussion.

I prefer Mylot over these sites too. I never have to give out personal information here plus it is fun and informative participating in discussions. I have made a nice amount for only being here 1 month and I can trust that I will be paid.

I have seen reviews on both the sites.I never joined cash crate.I don't like to sign up for many different sites.I joined inbox dollars and got some money in the site then i am not getting any mails from them so i left the site.I think the sites are good paying sites but i would prefer sites that pay all around the world.

I have tried Cash Crate but I didn't stick with it because I am reluctant to sign up and put my details on so many sites I don't know and I do not want to publicise my phone number; I was caught out once after placing my mobile number on a site I began receiving daily text messages which were costing me $2 each! I don't know anything about Inbox dollars...

Hello Angela, I joined cash crate before but I am not active to their site.I am currently active of inboxdollar but I have not reach yet the minimum payout.So far I heard that Inboxdollar are legit.I did sign up free offers and what I did is I was giving fake info.I just create names and right address and fake phone numbers sometimes works like 440-111-2222 and then they gave me credits.I know that is not right to give fake info but I don't wanna give the right info to this bunch of free offers. I have joined 6 sites like doing some free offers and I'm currently active for 1 yr.All I did is create names,right address and fake cell numbers 440-111-2222 and everything was fine,I got credited. Hope that helps..

I tried inbox dollars in the past year ive been a member i think i've earned like 5o cents as most the emails that come are geared for us residents not canadians. Cash crate i am a member of - i reached the minimum payout of $20 and received it however so often i find their offers are repeats so i cant sign up again...or dont feel right signing up for them again with different emails and i dont feel i should have to pay some of the fees some of their signups want you to pay before you can get credit at cashcrate because they arent really things i will use.

I've been paid on inbox dollars. It's good if you're going to use it for online shopping, like buying an entertainment book, I got $8. Those are the way to go if you're doing Inbox Dollars. It takes forever to get any money by taking surveys or reading emails. They are legit though.

I am a member of both. Cash Crate I haven't really tried out. But inbox I have been with for a long time and I have gotten paid twice from them by check. You don't get much for the emails but it eventually adds up I don't do the sign-ups because like you I don't like giving that much info. The surveys pay good if you can qualify for them. The games is good but to really be able to play them and make anything you have to invest your own money. Also shopping through there is really good. You can get special deals and money back for buying something you were gonna buy anyway. I like inbox and I know of one other that is almost exactly like inbox. if you wanna know either check out my profile or pm me. Hope this helped a little.

There are a few options online these days but it can be difficult to find one that is of good in comparison to the worth of it in the long run with other sites that claim to have such great offers. It can be indeed frustrating. I do hope that if you find something good then yes it is worth talking about but some people seem to have luck with one site while others don't have anything good with the same site. I guess it just depends.

Yes, I do both of them and I really enjoy them. It takes some time to get used to and some of the surveys you do not have to do all way. check out my site and it gives you alot of tips and tricks. http://www.freewebs.com/charblaize I have been paid by both about four times now and getting ready to cash out on Inboxdollars. wish you the best

Hello angela_allen! I've never used Cash Crate before because I've never liked those types of sites. I have used Inbox Dollars before, though. However, it was a long time ago and I stopped using it. To me, the money just isn't worth the time spent. I've since switched over to having a home based business and am much happier with it.

I've joined both site a year go I think. I'm not really active there. Cash crate doesn't have lots of opportunities for me and some offers require purchasing items. I think it really depends on the members location. I don't think I will ever reach payout that's why I quit. It sounds legit because I haven't heard rumors of those sites being scam sites.

Is true, those sites are not for international users, and if they are you cannot make a lot of money, but, from the info i collected on the internet, they look OK. Regarding your 'problem' and giving personal details, that's exactly the kind of stuff i hate most. But, are the using your details in any way? i mean, did you receive a phone call, emails from people or companies you don't know? Can you connect any suspect, annoying, phone call or email with those surveys ?!
• United States
31 Mar 09
Yes they do contact you! I gave my phone number to one company only, because this is before I realized I could leave that information blank. They called right away. I created a "spam email" so my real email is not overloaded and the 2nd email is already full of spam. I am sure I will see an increase of junk mail at my home as well, but that one is not as bad because it can just go straight to the recycle bin.

Yeah, this is the best part: they are using your info. Now, if you accept that for that amount they pay or not ... Good idea, i did the same thing, my junk is huge but i don't really care.
