Ultimate Guide to Earning Money With InboxDollars – Earn $5 Today!

If you are new to the world of making money online read this post first for a complete explanation.

InboxDollars is an online rewards site that pays you for doing simple activities. I have been a member of InboxDollars for about seven months now and have earned over $60.00 (and I wasn’t very active in December with the holidays and other obligations that come along at that time of year)! Now I could be making a whole lot more money, but I choose to only do the easiest and quickest activities on this site. If you want/need to earn more there are certainly plenty of opportunities to do so.

The first 5 activities I am listing are things that I have already completed, and/or things that I do daily. These are the easiest ways to earn cash with InboxDollars, but keep in mind that they aren’t the biggest money-makers.

  1. Sign-up – earn $5 just for joining using my link!
  2. My list
  3. Paid emails
  4. Search
  5. Videos
  6. WinIt


So let’s start out by talking about the sign-up process. Click the link HERE, then click where is says “Free! Join today” on the page that opens, and then fill out the form. Log into your email, find the email sent by InboxDollars, and click the “Activate” button. If you can’t find it, check to make sure it’s not in your spam folder. Once you have activated your account you will be credited with $5!

My list

Upon logging into your new account, you’ll see a small box in the upper right that says “My List”. There are activities listed that you can quickly complete to earn approximately (I can’t remember the exact amount) $1.00 bonus right off the bat. These activities range from completing your profile, to taking a quick survey, etc.

Paid emails

Now it’s time to talk about the activities that I complete daily. One great way to get paid is by reading your email! You’ll have 2-3 emails sent to the email address listed in your member profile each day. Simply confirm reading the email (there will be a link to click at the bottom of the email) and your account will be credited! You can also log into your InboxDollars account and click the emails tab to read your emails, or read them on the InboxDollars app. This simple activity takes under a minute! You get paid $.02 for every email, so that’s a very quick $.04-$.06 a day!


There are four different sites that I use to earn money by searching the web on a daily basis. These are Perk, Swagbucks, InstaGC, and InboxDollars. I usually start my day by opening four tabs in the browser on my laptop to the search page on each of these sites. I randomly search for things all day on each of these four sites. Tip: If there is a web site I will be visiting, I will type it in the search on these sites instead of typing it in the browser directly.

With InboxDollars you can win cash or sweeps every time you complete 4 qualified searches. You are more likely to earn a cash prize if you are actively engaging with search results, not just completing searches! Please keep in mind you will not always win a cash prize, but you will always win sweeps. You can earn up to $0.15 through cash search each day.

Bonus: Any week where you search four or more days, you will receive a $0.05 search loyalty reward. Gold Members will receive $0.10 for the search loyalty reward. This is another reason that I make sure to search at least once EVERY DAY!


I try to watch at least a couple of videos each day – sometimes more if time allows. Look for the videos that pay you $.01 each (some are only $.01 per 3-4 videos, which is not worth it in my opinion). I like to watch these on my tablet while I am working on my laptop. Or, I place my tablet on the counter while I am cooking or folding laundry and let them play. You can also open them in a tab in your browser and let them play in the background. Keep in mind that they don’t play continuously and you will have to click to start the next video.


A WinIt is a code: a series of letters and numbers that you can enter on the InboxDollars site for prizes. Each WinIt will have a specific reward attached to it. These rewards will be different depending on the WinIt. You may win sweepstakes entries, cash, or a contest entry. Every day I check to see if a WinIt code has been released and I post it here on my site, along with the link where you should enter the code. These codes aren’t released every single day, but they are most days.

This is where I am going to end this post for today. Stay tuned for part 2 on Friday! I am going to tell you about a few other easy ways to earn with InboxDollars. If you aren’t yet a member of InboxDollars, please use my link HERE to sign up and collect your $5 bonus!

Don’t forget to come back daily to check for winIt codes and hot offers! Also be sure to follow me on facebook and twitter.
