InboxPays Review: What Did I Find Out?

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

InboxPays, owned by A&A Marketing, is one of the many “get paid to” websites, or GPT for short, similar to that of InboxDollars, Swagbucks and PrizeRebel, to name a few.  It’s one of the lesser known ones, but it could be yet another option if you’re into this sort of thing.

In short, the company will pay you to view emails, complete offers, spin the wheel, clip coupons and so much more.  It’s free to join, and in many cases, they will even pay you, sometimes as much as $5, just for signing up!

With so many of these companies out there in this industry, the question really is if it’s worth joining?

Is it worth your time?

Are there enough offers to keep you busy?

As always, I take the jump and save you time, offering you an honest review as I always do with my reviews.

If you’re thinking about joining InboxPays, then follow along and see how it works and if I feel it’s worth your time.

InboxPays Review

Signing Up

To me, signing up was a little more annoying than most of the GPT websites I have signed up for in the past.

And the reason I say this is that I hate when these companies make you click on offers or simply click “no” a ton of times before they even let you access your dashboard.  Some companies do this, and a lot of times, it ends up doing more harm than good since these companies will sell off your e-mail address and you’re then presented with a ton of scam for an eternity.

This is what I’m talking about:

Signing up takes about three to five minutes, but as long as you don’t mind clicking “no” and viewing unnecessary offers, you eventually get to your dashboard.  It gets old clicking “no,” but it does end eventually.

All in all, InboxPays asks for your personal contact information, an email address and will force you through about three pages of offers before you need to confirm your email address to start making cash.

I didn’t really like the signup process, but since you only have to do it once, I will see if it’s worth the hassle.  Just be prepared for a lot of e-mails if you do click on yes on any of these offer opportunities.

Your Dashboard

After you confirm your email address, you can then log into your account and immediately access your dashboard.

Here’s what it will look like:

As you can see, you will have a variety of sections, all of which I will get into detail later on here, but for now, know that you can earn money via offers, coupons, cash games, bonus offers, referrals and jobs.

Simply click on a topic of interest on your sidebar and you will be presented with the most current offers.

Let’s talk about those sections now…

Cash Offers

Upon logging in, this is the very first section you will be presented with.  As the name implies, these will be the offers you can complete in exchange for cash.

The nice thing about InboxPays is that they break down the offers in categories, making easy for you to find what you’re looking for if you had something in mind.

For example, if you just wanted to complete a free offer with no credit card required, then you could look at the “free offers,” but if you wanted health-only offers, then you could do so via the “health and beauty offers” tab.

As I write this review, these were the sub-categories within the cash offers section to at least give you an idea as to what you could make money with:

And, if you’re not familiar with offers and how to get paid, in short, you will be asked to complete an offer, and as long as you follow the directions, you will get rewarded.

As one example, it asked me to sign up for a medical survey, and in doing so, I could get paid $4 if I qualified.  Another asked me to sign up for another survey panel that paid me $1 after confirming my e-mail.

NOTE:  These offers can be lucrative, but always make sure you read the fine print and be very careful if you give out your credit card number as most of the time you’re signing up for a free trial that you will need to cancel to avoid future billing.  If you just want free offers, there appears to be some but not many.

Reading Emails

This won’t be on your dashboard, but one of the main reasons people sign up for InboxPays relies on the emails you receive and get rewarded to look at it.

To earn what’s known as “Cash Mail Credits,” you will simply be asked to read and confirm the email sent as long as you click on the image and/or link inside of your email.  Make sure you do this as this is the only way you can get a credit.

Here’s what your settings should look like to maximize your earnings:

Depending on the email, you can earn up to $25, at least according to the FAQ, but according to members, plan on making about a few cents each.  As you can see, the company will send you CashMails whenever you want, but I would recommend daily options to make the most.

As a last note, the company will only send up to three emails a day so make sure you have the company’s domain whitelisted to ensure you don’t miss out.  Don’t expect to get rich in doing this!


The “coupons” section simply brought me to a coupon page where I could clip coupons, but it didn’t really say how I could earn.

So, in my effort to find out, I actually couldn’t find information with the exception of some third-party reviews that said you don’t make anything.

In short, I don’t know why this section is here, but if you want coupons, I guess you could print them, but don’t plan on getting any rewards.  A big thumbs down here.

Cash Games

In the “cash games” section, you can earn what’s known as spins to spin the wheel and win big cash prizes, and to earn “spins,” you will have to complete offers on the cash games prizes page, similar to that of the offers page.

While I was writing this, for instance, the jackpot was at more than $635+…


Just look next to each offer and see how many spins you can earn for completing a certain task.

For example, if you sign up for a research panel as seen in that screenshot, you could get three spins, whereas another offer gives you four spins if you check out your credit score.

Of course, like gambling, it’s really a luck of the draw, and just like the casino, I have no clue the odds are and what you can even win.  You really have to ask yourself if you would rather take the cash for completing an offer or “spins” for a spin on the wheel.

Personally, I’m taking the cash and not really gambling here, but no one is stopping you.


As with a lot of these GPT websites, InboxPays will pay you to refer friends to their platform.  This is the last section you can look at while logged in.

The referral system is pretty straightforward at 10% of your referral earnings.  So, if your referral earned $20, you would get $2.  And the great part is that this is for the life of your account.

If interested, just download your special referral link and share with your friends.  Just make sure you don’t spam as this can be a grounds for termination.


InboxPays is extremely simple to understand when it comes to your rewards as they strictly deal with cash, and once you hit $50, you can request a payment via PayPal.  There no gift cards, donations to charities, etc.   Just cash.

Now, do keep in mind that the company only pays in multiples of $50, so if you had $52 in your account, they would only send you $50, leaving you $2 in your account.  Yes, that’s right.  The minimum is $50.  This is kind of a bummer for two reasons.

For one, $50 is extremely high.  In fact, it’s probably one of the highest out of the GPT companies I have ever reviewed.

And secondly, I find it highly annoying that they only send out in multiples of $50.   I don’t get the reasoning for it, but hey, I don’t make the rules.

Aside from this, they also mention that certain requirements need to be met in order to receive your payout.  For example, you must complete a minimum of $25 in offers and/or Spin Wheel credits, while only a maximum of $25 in Cash Mail credits is allowed per request.

As per the FAQ, payments are made on the 1st or 15th of every month.  Be sure to read the FAQ to ensure that you can cash out.  It’s not as easy as you think in some cases.

What Others Are Saying

As with all of my reviews, I always dig deeper online to see what other people are saying because it isn’t always about me.

Listed below, I went ahead and broke down the pros and cons I was able to find in my personal research:

The Pros

  • few ways to earn cash
  • nice $5 sign-up bonus
  • PayPal cash
  • you can refer friends

The Cons

  • lots of spammy emails from third-party companies after signing up (not confirmed)
  • very high cashout rate at $50
  • pays out in $50 increments
  • F BBB rating (you can read those reviews here)
  • no surveys or very limited
  • delay in credits/payments as per these TrustPilot reviews

Final Thoughts

In the end, InboxPays is okay.  It’s not a scam.  I just don’t see it as being worth your time.

I don’t think it has much potential, at least to me, and I won’t add it to my daily list, the main reason I’m giving it a 5 out of 10.

For one, I hate the $50 minimum payout.  This is extremely high, and, in fact, it’s probably one of the highest out of all GPT websites.  By the way, if you like the idea of no minimum payout, be sure to check out this post.

Secondly, I wasn’t a fan of the offers on the actual dashboard.  It was primarily the offers you can find on any other site, and seeing these won’t make you much money, I wasn’t a big fan.  Plus, there were no surveys, a huge downside.

5/10As for the only plus, I could see some potential in the Cash Mails, but don’t expect much in doing so.  Extremely easy, all it’s going to take is a quick click to earn a few cents whenever you see an email arrive.

With so many GPT websites out there, I can’t really recommend it, but if you want to try it, the company definitely won’t scam you.  You can at least use this link for a $5 bonus once you complete your registration.  For now, you could try out the Cash Mails and at least browse the offers, but if you’re not making money, don’t blame me as I already gave you a fair warning!

In short, if you want a fantastic GTP or even survey site that offers you a variety of great opportunities, I recommend Swagbucks, Inbox Dollars and Survey Junkie.
