Making money online – Inbox Dollars

Whew! This one’s been a long time in the making! And I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. It’s pitiful really.

But yet I’m still excited! 2 years ago in March, I signed up for a website called Inbox Dollars – I’d heard that it was a legitimate site and, though it would be a very slow process, I could earn money for reading emails and taking surveys.

Well sure enough, it’s a slow one! But they do provide plenty of opportunities to earn – $0.02 per email, each an advertisement for another earning opportunity, a click to confirm you opened it, and you’re done. Plus several surveys if you have the time. usually about $1-1.50 each, as well as cash back for using coupons and their search engines, making your regular online purchases by routing through their site, etc.

I personally chose not to spend any money of my own to increase my earnings, and only chose a few select surveys and free offers. – I set up a filter on my email to sort the flow of email traffic so I would only see the emails when I chose to, and used an email address that I had already retired from personal use, but still accessed regularly.

Over the course of 2 years, and a few seconds at a time, a few extra clicks each week, I have finally earned enough to claim my first check!

My husband thinks I’m crazy, but hey! $30 is still $30! =) And I think I might just keep on a clicking!

What are some of the craziest things you’ve done to save or earn a couple of bucks?

  1. Perseverance:
    1 steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success : his perseverance with the technique illustrates his single-mindedness | medicine is a field which requires dedication and perseverance.

    He that is FAITHFUL in that which is least will be FAITHFUL also in much!

  2. I still haven’t got enough for a payment from Inbox dollars… They set the bar too high!
    And I hope they will start sending out gas cards, the one I got from Gifthulk was a nice help for my family budget 🙂

  3. Gas cards would be very nice! Inbox dollars does set the bar high, but it’s not impossible! Keep at it, and I’m sure it will pay off. Since posting this, I have built up another $9 and should reach my goal of $40 by next week. Then I’m pretty sure I’ll order my check and retire my account. =) It’s been a long process!
