I just googled Inboxpounds - they do not guarantee emails to non-US members (US members get 2-3 emails a day. Payment is made when you reach £20 and looks to be by cheque. Requests are processed 30 days after you make it, and then paid on the next payment run.

I signed up to Inbox a couple of months ago.You get points if you sign up to any of the offers(none which were relevant to me).I was getting 1p a day,for reading the emails they sent.I decided not to bother with Inbox anymore.

It depends if you want to sign up to the ads/offers they send.None were relevant to me. You can always give it a go,then unsubscribe if it's not to your liking.

I joined up today via a cashback site initially to get the cashback but I thought I would give it a go, i'm on £1.79 at the moment - £1.00 sign up bonus, 60p for profile type surveys, 1p for an email click and 18p for watching videos. So not too bad as a start but will take a little while to get to payout level. Looks like my earnings will mainly come from watching videos, I hope these will be available every day which i'm guessing they will.

So to anyone that's just signed up check out the videos section

Inbox pounds is not such a bad site. Easy money from watching videos (so far 407 watched) Easy money for email clicks (54). The surveys are quite short if you hit a lucky one (Survey Sampling seems better than Opinion Surveys). The search bar alone will earn you 15p per day! I joined 3 weeks ago and am £6 short of the £20 payout.

Was that INBOX Pounds or INBOX Dollars as they have two sites.

Just given this a punt as well. There's an offer for the "Golden Palace Casino" where you can sign up and deposit £20 quid, with a 100% signup bonus, and you receive £20 quid in your Inbox account.

I'll attempt to confirm this, but i'm also thinking that once the Inbox payment is confirmed, you could, in theory, withdraw your £20 quid from Golden Palace as well ..

It would all depend on the withdrawal requirements though, so i'll see what i can find out.

Ok, the withdrawal requirements are 40 x the deposit + bonus if you want to use the signup bonus. You can opt out of that and just use the money you deposit. There are no minimum wagering requirements if you play the table games.

So on the face of it, it's a legitimately "free" £20 quid - albeit with a waiting period, as InboxPounds have a similar system to Vivatic, in that when you request a payment, it gets paid out at the end of the following month.

I signed up to Inox Pounds 3 months ago using one of my 'special' e mail addresses I got 1 pound signup bonus have done a few surveys got couple of pounds from the offers but I chose the ones that dindnt require any deposit and although i get a lot of junk into my e mail i m not bothered coz its not my main address i also 'watch' the videaos (usually 1p per video) while im doing something else on the computer, and of course get 1p per email read. So far Ive earned 11 pounds

I've earnt £1.62 so far

I checked out the Golden Palace offer again and the ID Verification requirements are a hell of a lot of faffing around and I can't be bothered really. If i had a passport or driving licence it would be a shoe-in, but i don't.

It really does seem to be as simple as depositing £20 quid for the £20 quid credit though - you could theoretically withdraw the £20 quid straight back out again as there are no requirements or rules that say you must leave it in, just that you make the deposit.

I have just sent for my first cheque - so fingers crossed!

I have to wait until 1st November for the cheque to process - but I will update as and when I receive it. Has anyone else cashed out with Inbox Pounds yet?

Things seem to have picked up recently with them sending emails out to complete surveys - usually between 25p and £1 - and it works out great if you happen on a short survey. There have also been more vids recently.

Now that I have requested a cheque I am up to Gold Status and so there are a few extra perks on searches etc.

I quite like Inbox Pounds but I don't go on there as often as I could - usually too busy banging my head against the wall getting Swagbucks!

I like it, there's not a huge selection of offers but there's usually some videos and surveys, paid emails pretty much daily, and the searches can earn you some cash every day. I think I need to spend more time on that and reach cashout and see how it goes. They pay by cheque which I'm not mad on, but so be it.

I'm not sure if you're looking at the right site? From Inbox Pounds:

"PaidEmail™ messages are always targeted by geographic location. Thus, members in the United Kingdom receive more PaidEmail™ messages than other countries due to advertiser demand. PaidEmail™ messages are also targeted by other demographics listed under "My Profile", so it is important to keep your personal information accurate and current."
