InboxPounds Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 24 reviews Review It


InboxPounds, found at, is the new version of Inbox Dollars, a rewards website that allows members to earn money for doing their regular activities online, which is available in the United Kingdom.

Rewards websites allow members to sign up for free, and then pay them in either cash or prizes for doing the things they would normally do online anyway. At InboxPounds, you earn cash for the activities you perform, and you can cash out when you reach 20 pounds.

Rewards websites are able to pay their users because they partner with other companies who will use you for market research and feedback. This allows them a wide audience for study, and better enables them to make choices about their products, services, and marketing in the future.

How You Earn Money

InboxPounds says that you can earn money by reading emails, searching the web, taking surveys, playing games, and much more. And while it may seem hard to believe, it’s true. And you can sign up for free.

What they don’t say up front, however, is that the amount of money you will earn for doing is just a couple cents per activity you perform. This means that it will take quite awhile to earn 20 pounds.

This doesn’t mean that rewards websites aren’t worth it, however. Since the theory is that you are just supposed to be doing things you would be doing anyway, any money you earn is a bonus. This is not intended to replace your normal income.

The Concerns

With rewards websites like InboxPounds, however, there are a couple things to look out for. Since they will be paying you to read emails, you may want to sign up for a separate email account just for this purpose.

These emails may also give you opportunities to earn even more cash by signing up for special offers, products, or service trials. However, you must be very careful. Often these offers will cost you money in the end, because the trial subscriptions will often roll over into monthly fees, so it’s important to read the fine print.

Average Rating for " InboxPounds " is 2.29 out of 5 based on 24 reviews.
  • There are certain situations that can make this site worth considering [incarcerated in prison, or on a 3 month space journey to Mars for instance]. In other words, if you have nothing better to do, this site may be for you.

    It is not money for nothing, there is a CONSIDERABLE outlay in time involved. Surveys pay the rate of about 1 penny [£0.01] per minute.

    This is about 60 pence [£0.60] per hour.

    In comparison the current hourly National Minimum Wage rates are:

    - 25 & over: £7.20

    - 21 to 24: £6.70

    - 18 to 20: £5.30

    - under 18: £3.87

    - Apprentice: £3.30.

    The majority of the estimated times quoted for the surveys to be completed are inaccurate. Surveys can take more than twice the estimated time to complete.

    In addition there are other issues with the surveys. There is usually a series of questions to complete, before the survey, to establish whether your demographics are appropriate for the survey.

    These questions can sometimes take a number of minutes to complete, and often are not logically configured leading to unnecessary questions prior to rejection.

    There is no reward paid regardless of the amount of time expended.

    Rejections are common.

    It is not unusual to be rejected from a number of surveys in turn. This can lead to 10 to 15 minutes of wasted time with no reward.

    It is not unusual to be expelled from a survey, even when the responses have been appropriate, even after more than 50% of a survey has been completed.

    This again means 10 to 15 minutes of wasted time with no reward received.

    I have also found that there are unscrupulous survey companies that will avoid payment by use of devices such as:

    'your session has timed out',

    'you are not a good fit for this survey'.

    These messages being generated AFTER the survey has been completed and registered.

    Contacting the companies directly is a waste of time.

    Contacting In Box Pounds via their chat line is also a waste of time as they do not resolve the issues or compensate for the loss.

    The membership base of In Box Pounds is either very small, or otherwise 'Gold' membership rewards are not paid as promised.

    The principal advantage of 'Gold' membership is quicker processing of payments.

    Gold membership generated, for me, only 3 additional surveys for an additional reward of less than 50 pence. I received no payments from new members signing up to In Box Pounds.
  • Certainly a survey company to avoid Waste time up to 25 minutes only to be told that you are not an appropriate surveyee. Many better survey companies available
  • Just be careful if you sign up to free trials you may be charged at the end of the trail. This caught me out with UK credit ratings n I couldnt get my fee refunded
  • Hi,thought I,d tell you how excellent and addictive this site is! It has totally changed my way of life.Not sure about some of the sites though, but I really enjoy spending my spare time looking into it!
  • inbox pounds is legitimate , , however the surveys are not there's they route you to them they are a 3rd party, just keep trying and be "consistent ! " with THE "info ? " you supply and can make make £2 a day no problem
  • does anybody know if the cheque gets sent to your house xox?.
  • i have had a few cheques but this site is a right con it takes ages to get 20 pounds as for being a gold member it taakes ages to get a survey then they screen you out and i have noticed if there is a survey over a pound they never let you answer it they screen you out its all a scam
  • Lying and cheating company. Just now finished aprrox. 30 min survey and they told me that I earn nothing cos my criteria doesnot fit. And it is not first time. Seems to earn these 20 pounds is mission impossible.
    • i never qualify for surveys and paid email is only 1 pence scam they are just wasting ure time i have been on it for 1 year and only on 10 pound
  • The site can really give you some extra money if you know how to use it (here is a screenshot from my account with all the cheques I've received from them:
  • I do not no what you people are doing but i've had a few cheques now all legit anyway i've got 106 pound in my inbox pounds account ready to be sent out in a cheque if i wish I reccomend this site yes it takes time and you get screened out quite a lot but bare with it trust me it does add up
    • Cash in your payment. Every time you request a payment you will receive £1 bonus. By requesting payment for every £20 you could have earned an extra £5 in bonuses.

      This site is not a secured savings account. If the rules are changed or the site is closed you will receive none of the £106 that you have accumulated.

      Take the money and put it in a proper bank account, or have it transferred to a Paypal account where there is protection from loss.
    • How long did it take for you to earn £106?
    • How do you earn so much? I've only got £4
