In today’s post, I wanted to talk about the few ways you can hack InboxDollars, legally. 

No, this isn’t a way to scam the system; rather, picture it as a way to make more money to your advantage.  I know the term “hack” can be affiliated with bad things, but this isn’t always the case since some people use the term as a way to “take advantage” of something.

Today, I want to share some honest tips as to how you can increase your earnings with InboxDollars.  There’s nothing shady about this nor will you get banned, I promise you that.

If you’re a fan of InboxDollars or maybe you’re just starting, let’s take a look at the many ways you can ethically hack the system.

InboxDollars Hacks

#1 Know Which Offers To Take Advantage Of

This can be said with any site such as InboxDollars, and what you’re going to want to do is find what’s known as a money-maker.  These are offers that will cost you money, but you will make more money in the end.

Let me give you an example.

This was an offer on my dashboard when I was writing this.  As you can see from the screenshot, I could earn $20 if I downloaded “Charlie.”  However, if you were to read the fine print, it would note the following:

You can see that I would have to fund my account with $10, but this would make it a $10 money maker.  In this case, however, I could get that $10 I invested back since it’s more of a banking account, not a purchase that so many of these offers tend to be.

InboxDollars often has 100s of money-making offers, and it’s going to be your job to scroll through the offerings and see what you can take advantage of.   In most cases, you will have to use your credit card, but I highly recommend you use  This is a website that creates a one-time use credit card so that you’re never charged again.  That way, if you’re uneasy you’re going to get billed, the card will be denied for any future transactions.

On most of these sites, I almost always do offers and can make $100~ a month, no problem.  If you work harder than I do, then I don’t see why you can’t make even more.

NOTE:  Always make sure you read the fine print to know what’s expected of you to take advantage of the offer.

#2 Know Which Surveys Pay Big

I know, most survey sites don’t pay big.  You’re lucky enough to get, maybe, a $1 or $2 survey.  While this is the case with InboxDollars, you can find surveys that pay big; you just need to know which ones you’re looking for.

On your dashboard, what you’re going to want to do is look for a $1 per 5-7 minute ratio.  If it doesn’t pay more than this, you’re going to waste your time.  They won’t always be there, but you can continue to refresh since InboxDollars will continue to add surveys by the minute, sometimes second.

So, let’s take a look at an example.

This was my dashboard as I was writing, and as you can see, there’s a survey that meets my criteria — the seven-minute survey for $2.

If you’re able to use this ratio, you can make much more money for your time rather than taking a 25-minute survey that only pays $0.25.

Remember, you won’t qualify for every survey you take, so do keep that in mind.  In fact, you will be lucky enough to qualify for more than 25%~.  Just fill out that personal profile so that the company can match you with the right surveys, according to your demographics.

NOTE:  Always take $1+ to save time in this section.

#3 Take Advantage of the Refer-a-Friend

The refer-a-friend program is fantastic as they offer an industry-high 30% of whatever earnings they earn.

So, let’s say you refer a friend and they apply these tips, earning $100 in a month.  That would mean $30 in your pocket.  Now, picture helping 10 people, and multiplying that.  You can see the numbers can add up.

You have to be careful with a refer-a-friend because you don’t want to spam your link, but if you’re smart about how you promote it, people will sign up and earn.

Take advantage of Facebook Groups, tell your friends or casually mention it whenever making money is brought about.  Trust me, people will be interested, particularly in the offers section.

#4 Avoid Shopping, Games, Videos, and Offers Less than $5

On average, the offers that pay you less than $5 won’t be worth your time as you will have to jump through a lot of hoops just to get your credit, and let’s not forget the spam you will see in your e-mail inbox.  This is the main reason I recommend creating a second, special email for these types of sites.

The same can be said about the shopping section, too, as most of the offers here aren’t worth your time.  Even though you can get cash back, you will find that their rates are subpar.  You’re better off with a site like Rakuten.

And, let’s avoid the videos and games as well.  These options take a ton of your time, only to pay out pennies.

In the end, it’s best to focus on those offers greater than $10 as well as the $1+ surveys.  Solely focusing on those can greatly increase your earnings.

Final Thoughts

Be warned of the many unethical hacks online.  If it seems to easy to make money, well, it’s not going to work and it will only lead to a quick suspension.  This isn’t something you want to do.

Yes, you can make more money on InboxDollars, but you need to know how to do so, and hopefully, these tips can help.  You won’t get rich, I can’t stress this enough, but you can easily make $200~ a month completing offers and surveys if you log in multiple times a week.

AND, don’t forget that there are so many sites that work just like InboxDollars.  While I think InboxDollars is okay, I feel there are many other options out there that can do much better for your wallet.

That’s going to do it for now.
