An easy way to earn a little extra money online is by using reward websites that pay you for simple things, such as taking surveys, watching videos, completing offers and trying new products.
Inbox dollars is a free to join, online rewards site that pays you for your consumer feedback. Sign up today and you will receive a free $5 sign-up bonus. (If you’re in the UK you’ll need to sign up to the UK version – Inbox Pounds – here.)
How you can make money online with Inbox Dollars
Select the ‘Surveys’ option in the top menu to see the list of survey providers and choose one. Then you will be shown the available surveys, the amount you’ll be paid for answering, and the approximate time it will take to complete the survey. Click on a survey to open it, answer the questions and when you’ve completed it, your reward will be added to your Inbox Dollars account.
You can earn by completing a variety of offers: these can involve answering surveys, filling in questionnaires, trying out new products or services, all sorts of things. Just click ‘Offers’ in the top menu and you’ll be shown a list of the available offers along with the amount of incentive you’ll be paid for completing. Just click on a offer you’re interested in for more information and instructions on how to complete it.
You can opt in to receive paid emails. If you open these emails and click the link at the bottom of each email to show you’ve opened it, you will be paid a small amount per email opened.
Watching TV and Videos
You can earn by watching the TV and Videos available under those options on the menu. Just watch the featured videos to earn. (It’s the advertising within the videos that you’re being paid to see).
Searching the web
You can earn a few pennies each day if you use the search bar on Inbox Dollars to carry out web searches.
You can choose to be paid via e-gift card (various retailers available) or by physical cheque.
If you enjoy taking surveys to make extra pennies, there are lots of other survey sites you can use to earn too; this post has a list of seven of my favourite genuine survey sites.
