InboxDollars is a point program that pays you in either a check or a deposit on a special Inbox dollar Visa cash card once your account reaches the balance of $30.
InboxDollars doesn’t have the high income earning potential of Swagbucks but when you stick to the simple point earning activities on Inbox and add its earnings with other simple earning point earning activity programs it is a way of making a small amount each month from home in that down time at the end of the day when all you feel like doing is putting your feet up and watching TV.

10 Ways to Earn Cash With InboxDollars
These 10 ways to earning actions are listed in order from what I consider simplest and least time consuming to actions that you might not do daily or are more time consuming.
1. Sign up
Sign up for an account through this link in blue, and start off your account with $5.
2. Paid Emails
Each day click through the paid emails either on the site directly or through your email box or through the InboxDollars App. and earn .02 cents per email. On average I get 1 to 3 emails paid emails a day. Doing this point action takes just seconds per email and is such a no brain cells required action.
3. Use The InboxDollars Toolbar
You earn .01 cent for every 2 qualified search through the InboxDollars toolbar to the maximum of .15 cents per day. You can download the toolbar for easy access and earn but you can also access the tool bar at the top of the InboxDollar’s home page or use the search feature in the app. When you use the toolbar 4 days in a row during one calendar week you get a .05 cent bonus.
4. Radio Loyalty
This is another easy section to earn points. Simply click through to radio loyalty using the “more” tab found on the InboxDollars home page. Scroll down to radio and click on it, then click through to Radio Loyalty, pick a station you like and listen to it in one tab while you work on your computer in another. Set a timer to 10 minutes and whenever it goes off click on over to Radio Loyalty and enter the code you are given. For every 10 minutes you listen and enter the code for you get .01 cents. I couldn’t find a limit on this so this could add up depending on how many hours you spend on your computer daily.
Under the “deals” tab on the homepage for InboxDollars you will find the words “Groupon” and “Coupon”. InboxDollars gives you 8% cash back on any Groupon purchased through their website, and .10 cents for any coupon that you print from their website and redeem.
If you shop online you might as well earn cash back. Click the “more” tab on the Inbox Dollars home page and scroll down to the word “shopping” click on it and see if where you want to make your purchase is one of the 34 online shops available. What you receive in cash back varies from store to store. For instance when I checked the Shopping area during writing this you got 2% back for Walmart and 3% back for Kohls.
7. Refer Friends
Once you have used InboxDollars for a while and decide you like it, why not share it with your friends through a referral link provided by InboxDollars under the “refer friends ” tab. If they sign up you get 10% of their qualified earnings for as long as they remain in the program.
The video section of InboxDollars requires you to pay attention somewhat as you often have to answer questions. Which is why it is low on my list of simple ways to earn with InboxDollars. However not all videos require this, you just have to check out what is available at the time. Look for the word “social vibe” those are the ones you have to interact with.
When I looked at the offers area to write this post there were currently 134 offers. I found most of the offers to be mostly valid, with only a few spamy ones mixed in. They varied in value from .25 cents to $10. Some of the offers I saw included points for first time purchase at Vista print, or for signing up for various survey companies, and sign ups for email newsletters from various companies.
I am not a huge fan of Surveys as they often are time consuming and usually low paying. However, they can often be multi-tasked. I have met several women who love doing them while cuddling up next to their hubby who is watching sports. It is a way to cuddle and earn at the same time.
If you have tried Inbox Dollars what is your favorite way to earn points using their program?
