I have been with InboxDollars the longest out of any of the other websites I've done and I have to say it's my favorite.

Minimum Cashout: $30 (yes its high but trust me, you'll be there in no time)
Pros: VERY easy to earn, Offers Credit, Useful Toolbar, Free Gold Membership after first cashout (scroll to bottom for details)

Ok, this is going to be a long one because this website is just AWESOME.
First of all I will briefly cover all ways you can earn money on InboxDollars. The first way is email. All you do is go inbox of the email address you signed-up with, click the "InboxDollars Paid Email" and click on whatever ad is there or there might be a "Confirm Paid Email" at the bottom. You can also access this from the website itself.
Second, are Offers. By now you should be pretty accustomed to offers and they aren't any different here. They credit usually after a day for me and I almost always get credited.
Third, is referring people. You get %10 of your referrals' "qualified earnings". This is straight off the InboxDollars website:
Fourth, is Taking Surveys. Surveys are normally VERY long. I don't recommend them unless you are bored and have a lot of time to sit down and do these. You get $.50 per survey AND an entry into a contest to win $50,000 so it isn't that bad.
Fifth, is Playing Games. Honestly, you aren't going to make much money playing games on InboxDollars unless you are very lucky and win a sweepstake and to even earn anything you have to spend so I advise to just ignore these.
Sixth, is Shopping Online. The way this works is you look at the websites InboxDollars has to choose from, you pick one, buy something, and you get a percentage of what you bought back into your InboxDollars account. Percentages vary depending on what merchant you pick and "featured stores" offer the most cash back. Unless you happen to be buying something from a website offered on InboxDollars don't use this. You shouldn't go out of your way to start buying everything through them. Even if you bought a $1000 HDTV or something the most you would get back would be about $30.
Seventh, are Cash Tasks. These are relatively new and I haven't really tried them out yet. After a quick peek at the page it seems that they make you do stuff like go to a link for a mattress and then tell them the make, model, manufacturer, etc. Looks like it wouldn't be worth the time and effort for less than surveys and offers would get me so I would steer clear of these.
Eighth, are Grocery Coupons. Basically these work like any other coupon sites out there. You print them, go use them and you get $1.00 for every 10 that you use. For a explanation of how they are credited to you click here. Very easy way to earn.
And Finally they have a FREE Gold Membership Upgrade when you cashout for the first time. Here are the benefits straight off the website:
As a Gold Member, you can start requesting your checks to be processed on a weekly basis, rather than a monthly schedule.
Every time a new member joins InboxDollars without being referred, they are placed in a pool of new non-referred members. Your Gold Membership guarantees you a portion of these "referrals."
Your Gold Membership gives you an additional Sweepstakes entry for each entry you earn, which doubles your chances to win!
Gold Members have access to exclusive monthly offers that only Gold Members can enjoy.
And That's It! With all these ways to earn money you'll be at your $30 cashout in no time.
