Get paid to read emails is another great way to earn extra money. You won’t make a lot but it’s free and flexible, and is just so easy to do!
How does “Get Paid To Read Emails” work?
You join a “Get Paid To (GPT)” site/program, usually giving them your name, email and other demographic information, and the site/program owner delivers advertisers ads to your email box, and you click on the link in the emails to visit the advertisers’ websites – yes, you are actually get paid to view ads! Usually you get paid cash or “points” for reading and clicking. Most of those sites also offer other ways to get paid such as shop and sign up offers.
What’s the catch?
Most of these “GetPaidTo” sites are short lived – for some reason, they don’t “survive” for a long time, they come and go. It’s not uncommon you heard people complaining they are scam! Also, majority of those sites pay really low, they usually pay less than one cent, which make them not worth your time!
Tip: if you do those low paying (1 cent or less per email) paid to read emails, make sure you cash out as soon as you reach payout – you never know when they are going to close their doors!
What are the BEST Legit Paid To Read Emails Sites?
However, there are a few honest, legitimate and reliable and “high paying” sites that actually worth joining in my opinion – Below are the best/top paying PTR sites, all pay 1 cent and up - all pay cash either by Paypal or check.
Hits4Pay – You receive $5 in your account when sign up as a member. They send you emails according to your interest. You earn $0.02 for viewing each ad. Cash out minimum is $25.00.

InboxDollars - You get $5 just for signing up at Inboxdollar. They pay $0.02 for reading/clicking each email,/ad.

Advice/Tips & Notes:
1. As you can see some of the sites above have a pretty high cash out requirement of $25 or $30. So finding active referrals will greatly shorten the time needed to reach the minimum payout, especially for hits4pay and deaslncash. Even it’s just a couple of friends signing up as your referrals and actively clicking ads, will be very helpful.
2. Reading paid emails/Viewing ads only take a few minutes a day, or you can schedule a specific time to do the work. For example, I check those emails once a week, usually during weekend.
