Who pays you to read emails, and why?

There are platforms that pay you to read emails. These platforms are paid for by advertisers to promote their products by mail. They send us emails with the advertisements. We get a share of the platform’s revenue as a commission.

You can always do this in your free time. There are people really making money out of this. Using your free time to earn that extra cash is a good idea.

If you have read my other articles, you might know that I make it very simple. This is already a simple way of earning money; just reading this post can get you started making money reading mail.

Here are 7 legit platforms to make money.


This incredible platform is a haven for people to make money from multiple tasks. Most of my articles have swagbucks involved.

Just signing up on swagbucks will earn you a $5 signup bonus. Any task you do on Swagbucks will earn you points; these are called SB points. A hundred SB equals $1.

You can make money here by reading emails as well as completing other tasks such as completing surveys, watching videos, playing games, browsing the web, and more. It’s easy to collect points as there are multiple tasks to do.

You can also make money as a referral. You get 10% of the earnings of your referee.

Once you have collected enough points, you can redeem them as gift cards or cash via PayPal.

2. Unique Rewards

A second platform that pays you to read emails is Unique Rewards. All these platforms just don’t pay you to read emails, but there are also many other different tasks you can do to earn money here. That makes it easy for us to collect points quickly.

Sign up to receive a $5 sign-up bonus, similar to Swagbucks. After signing up, you will receive emails in your inbox . Open the emails and view them to earn money. Sometimes you’ll find links in the mail; you have to click on the links provided.

Referring friends will earn you $5 when they sign up.

But here are some points to note . Residence from Canada or USA can only register and you have to be 18 or older.

$20 is a minimum amount you can redeem via PayPal.

3. FusionCash

Fusion Cash is similar to the above two sites. You get the $5 signup bonus, a pleasant factor like the other two. Other than reading mail, you can earn money by doing different tasks such as watching videos, listening to music, completing surveys, and more.

You have to be 18 or older, and users between 13 and 18 will need parental permissions.

Everything is similar to the other 2 sites on the list. You can register on all these sites and make money from all the sites together.

The only difference this has is that you can redeem your money in more ways here. Like PayPal cash, check or direct transfer. The minimum threshold is $25.

4. Cash Crate

One more legit site I came across is Cash Crate. Here too you can Make Money from various jobs including the email reading.

But unlike others, the sign-up bonus you get here is only $1, and you need to be 18 or older to register.

Cash Crate is a little different; you will receive emails with affiliate links; clicking on them will land you on the advertiser’s page, and that’s how you will generate money.

And again, referring friends will earn you 10% of their earnings.

The minimum threshold is $20. You can redeem it via PayPal.

5. Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars Is one of the prominent platforms you can earn money reading mails. I have written several other articles on this.

Sign up and get a $5 sign-up bonus. After you are done with the registration you will start getting mails, open and read them to earn money. If you find links, you have to click on the links.

After you reach the threshold of $30, you can redeem it through PayPal cash or gift cards.

6. Inbox Pays

Inbox Pays is one more legit website that pays you for reading emails.

It has a lot of similarities with other sites, but just one very good plus factor that it has over others is that it pays us more than others for reading emails.

Here as well you get a $5 sign-up bonus. You need to be 18 to register. You can do many other activities here along with reading mail to make money. You get 10% of the earnings of your referees.

You have to read the mail sent to your inbox. You get 2 to 3 mails everyday. One plus factor I mentioned earlier is that it pays you $0.25 for reading the mail, which is more than others on our list.

The minimum redemption amount is $25 when using PayPal.
