For the first official post on Green Light Income I am going to discuss a one of three (3) different CASH BACK/SURVEY/MEMBER sites that I use on a daily basis. This will be a 3-part post because there is a lot of information about each site and I want to make sure you know everything you need to know. All 3 sites are FREE to join and there is NO catch.
These sites will most definitely NOT make you rich nor will they even give you a part-time income, but if used together they can give you a good chunk of ‘extra spending money’ every month. Obviously this is a way to earn money online and although many people don’t agree there are thousands of legitimate ways to earn money on the internet. My goal is to show you as many of the different online earning options as I can while staying away from any MLM (multi-level-marketing) type systems.
The first step to earning money with Inbox Dollars is to simply sign up.
Once you have verified your account you will earn money for every task/action you complete.
The following list are ways to earn with Inbox Dollars and how much you can earn yearly for each of the items in the list.
Search, Play, Complete and Earn More to Save More!
-Get Paid To Read Emails. Earn $22/year. One of the ways Inbox Dollars tells you about great deals is through email. They send you 2-4 emails per day that are each worth $0.02 a piece. You do NOT have to complete the offer to earn the $0.02, you get that for just opening the email. You also get the emails inside you I.D. account so you don’t even need to check your regular email to earn the cash. If you like the offers in the emails and you complete them you can earn anywhere from another $0.02 to $20.00. If you miss your daily emails that’s okay because it saves them all in your member account and you can do them when you get to it. Start checking your inbox to earn now.
-Get Paid To Watch Videos. Earn $15/year. Big name companies and Brands have huge advertising budgets and one way of spending their advertising money is to pay people to watch their video ads. Earnings vary but the average pay is $0.01 per video. Some brands limit the number of videos per day you can earn from and others want you to interact with the video/ad to earn. Watch videos and start earning now.
-Search The Internet/Web. Earn $54/year. Switch from Google Search to Inbox Dollars search as your default search engine to start earning. Just like reading emails and watching videos you will only earn a few cents per day and there is a $0.15 per day cap on search earnings. Regardless you are searching the internet anyway so why not earn money while doing it? Start searching to earn now.
-Get Paid To Use Coupons. Earn $62/year. This is as simple as using the coupons under the coupon tab. You click, print and redeem. For each redeemed coupon your are paid $0.10 by Inbox Dollars. Start Earning from your coupon savings now.
Finally my two favorite ways to make money using inbox dollars are Completing Offers and taking Surveys. Offer completion pays anywhere from $0.02 per offer all the way up to $20 per completed offer. Read the fine print so you know exactly how you earn with the offers. Surveys pay up to $200/year. Each surveys pays out anywhere from $0.10 to $5 per completed survey and there are always tons of surveys for you to do. You MUST qualify for the survey to be accepted and be paid. Sometimes the qualification process takes as long as the survey itself BUT it is worth it.
Finally; refer your friends and family members by simply sharing on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and more. You can also refer them through email. Once a friend/family member joins through your link you earn 10% of their earnings for life.
You need to earn a total of $30 to cash out. The first time you cash out you are given a $3 bonus. After your initial cash out you are promoted to a GOLD MEMBER this doubles your earnings on searches and Billy’s Spin and Wins.
Billy’s Spin and Win is a way to earn more money, sweepstakes and tokens. The tokens are a way to get extra money on the next completed survey you do, for example if you complete a survey for $0.75 and you have a $0.25 token then you are paid $1 for the survey you just completed. Sweepstakes are basically entries into different cash prizes that vary from $0.25 to $250 gift card of choice or Target Gift cards. (I think there is an affiliation with Inbox Dollars and Target as the sweepstakes rewards are all Target or Cash added to your balance)
You are also able to cash out weekly as a Gold Member. (A note to self: the earnings from Inbox Dollars are paid out in the form of gift cards and they do NOT use PayPal. I personally use my earnings for an Amazon gift card because I do A LOT of shopping through Amazon but there are other gift card options such as Nike, Restaurant.com, Starbucks and more.)
Building up your Amazon Gift Card balance is a great way to save money for household items, birthday gifts or even Christmas presents. So join Inbox Dollars today for free and start earning some extra spending money.
Since I am a very honest person I do have to tell you that the only down-side to Inbox Dollars is that you cannot get paid through PayPal. This is unfortunate and I wish that they would allow that as a payout option but at this time they do not. Your first payout takes 2 weeks on average to process but after your initial payout you can request payment once a week as long as you have earned at least $30. There is a processing fee for payout. For example; my first payout I had earned $32.24 but when I received my requested payout it was only $29.24. It cost me $3 to get paid. I do wish they had more of a variety of gift cards but as I said I use Amazon so it works for me.
