Inbox Dollars is one of many “get paid to do” websites out there. The website and app pay you to confirm their paid emails, watch videos, use their search engine, complete shopping offers, and the most lucrative option of all: take surveys. I’ve been using it for the past month or so, to answer some questions I had about it, and of course, to see if I could get some cash out of the deal.
