Need extra cash? Get paid for sharing your opinion from home

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the job market, costing more than 40 million Americans their livelihood over the past several weeks. Although mandatory lockdowns and quarantines are now ending, the long-term effects of this economic blow still remain to be seen.

As a result, many unemployed workers have switched to gig-economy jobs in hopes of recouping cash. Services like Uber and Doordash are currently hiring drivers, and there are even some high-paid positions that can directly help save lives as COVID-19 continues to spread. Tap or click here to see how you can get a job as a contact tracer.

But if you’re looking for a way to make extra cash on the side to improve your bottom line, you can’t go wrong with this website that pays you to answer surveys, check emails and shop online. Better yet, you can do all the work from home and collect your payments. It may not make you rich, but it’s easier to do than almost any other gig job. Here’s why.

InboxDollars pays you for consumer research

We all know how valuable data is to the biggest companies and firms on the planet. In fact, Facebook’s entire business model is predicated on collecting and sharing data, which can help marketers refine their approach and produce products people are more likely to buy. Tap or click here to see how Facebook continues to sell your data.

But not everyone is on social media, and sometimes, the data these firms receive from platforms like Facebook is only tangentially related to what they’re hawking. Direct feedback in the form of surveys and opinion polls will always be the stronger data to study.

This is the reason that InboxDollars exists. InboxDollars pays users for online activity they do normally — such as shopping, reading and taking surveys. The payouts are small, but if you invest enough time, you can make a bit of “flex money” to supplement your existing income (unemployment or otherwise).

How does InboxDollars work?

Here’s what you need to know: InboxDollars users sign up and provide their email address. Then, the company will send out coupons, surveys, videos, advertisements and links that will generate value once they’re interacted with.

Typically, tasks pay about 50 cents, but some can scale up to $5 for completion. Once you hit the $30 mark, you can cash out your earnings via PayPal or a physical check in the mail.

Interestingly, some of the options also include product samples for review, which means you’ll be getting free gifts in your mailbox to try out. Neat!

Most importantly, you’re not under obligation to continue subscribing if you’re tired of the promotions. You can always quit just by visiting your account settings.

Once again: This service is not intended to replace your existing income or unemployment benefits. Instead, think of it as an easy way to make extra money for the little things in life, like dining out or shopping for knick-knacks. While you’re at it, you may want to keep looking for new and upcoming work-from-home jobs. Tap or click here to see who’s hiring.

If you’re eager to give InboxDollars a try, tap or click here to visit the company’s website. The marketers and retailers of the web are dying to know what you think.
