Get Paid To Read Email*

You get all sorts of junk in your mail anyway, why not get paid for it? You either get a piece of email you're interested in, or you simply hit your delete button after visiting site. We all do that all the time now already, so why not?? (more info)

Sites are more or less ordered as to how much you might make (although this changes constantly, most of those towards the top will pay much more than those at the bottom).

New Scam alert - Mec-co-op-paidmail - STAY AWAY!! Changes rules more often than most people change their underwear, now deletes accounts that go 2 weeks without clicking (as if to click on a link for less than a penny - or about 60 cents/hour is something high on your list of priorities. All other sites are 30 days plus. She basically steals from you, as you don't get your money, or your dowline. Also server is down a LOT. Don't get sucked in!!

This is FAR and AWAY the BEST paying site you will find. They pay TWENTY FOUR(!!) cents per mail, if you return their form, or .08 if all you do is click. If you only want one site, do not miss this one, no one even comes close. Not a lot of emails, so you don't waste time clicking for nothing. If you have ANY other GPTR sites in your stable, make sure you add this one. Unparalleled! Also, one of the first in the business.



These guys are veterans at this. They have decent payouts on both your and your referral payouts (one level). They have a $10 min payout, and they pay by check. NO TIMERS! NO cheesy BS you get from the small sites. Great website (not a cookie cutter), even send you updates on your earnings and downline. They will not disappear when their members hit payout levels like many do. Moderate to ghigh amount of mail.

They pay by check.


Free Mail Cash deleted my account, and therefore earnings, for no reason, and with no notification. I get the feeling I'm not the only one, stay away!

Free Mail Cash

Site sold, new owner NOT honoring your earnings. Any site owner that thinks it is OK to not pay you will just do it again once they get enough to sleaze out of the business the way they entered into it. STAY AWAY!

Paid Biz Op Mail

10-23-02 Another one bites the dust. They are disappearing without paying - like many others above will eventually..!

Bust Your Gut

8-11-02 - site is currently up for sale, who knows what will happen..

8-19, site sold... Still sending mails, and no wait period. New owners apparently just got rid of old accounts, and their earnings. These will just do it again.

Wish for Money

9/6/02 Looks like a scam site. When they 'deleted' my account, I had only been a member for about 2 weeks, so they can't even pretend to claim I was inactive for a month. I have sent 3 letters to them to get it straightened out, but they do not reply. They do keep spamming my inbox, but I can't get credit for anything they send because it doesn't accept my account. I always wonder why they keep sending mail if they don't think you have an account; but of course that's what spam is all about! Stay away from this one!

10-3-02 Owner has decided to shut down site within 6 months. Transferring all members earnings to her other site, mec-co-op. At least that is fair, but at this point there would be no reason to sign up for this one.

Copper Coins

8-21-02 currently for sale. We'll see..

9-7-02 Site sold. New owner decided to reset all members earnings to $0. How thoughtful. With concern for his customer base like that right at the start, this is another to just stay away from!

Click 4

We keep you from the sites that have WAY to many pop-ups (although I feel that 1 is too many), and the sites that are SO slow, because when you are making the kind of money that these guys are talking about, you are NOT going to wait for some penny ante web server to get around to your request. Unless you can just click and earn your cash, it won't make it here.

Also, if we say something is recommended, it is because they pay and usually pay well per email. We won't recommend the ones who bother you with .1 cent emails, have super slow sites, or tons of pop-ups. We also don't recommend ones because they pay a bounty for a referral, unless they also pay well for mail.

While there are literally thousands of these programs (yes there are!), MANY are scams. If they pay a tenth of a penny per mail, yet have a $250 minimum payout, do you think they even are going to pay you? Even if they have a $50 signup bonus? How bout the ones that give you a huge signup bonus, than a large (maybe $20) per referral, but when you look at the fine print, you find they only pay the referral fee once THEY get paid. And they get paid after they reach $250, and they can' include their signup bonuses. And they get about a tenth of a penny for an email. So, after about 2,785 years, you might be eligible to be paid. Just read some of the terms, there are more of these than you could ever imagine. And, they actually get people to sign up! They get paid from the advertiser, and know they will never have to pay a single 'reader'. We sift through all those for you, and only present the ones with legitimate programs where you have a chance of getting paid. You can sign up for every one here, and you will eventually get paid, in YOUR lifetime, so long as they keep sending mails, and stay in business. Can we guarantee that? Of course not, and you can bet a bunch of these will be gone before they start making payments. But, if you sign up for plans with minimal payments, at least you won't waste much time with them. They'll either pay, or stop cluttering your inbox. And WE save you the time of searching the entire web for the thousands of programs that never plan to pay you RIGHT UP FRONT!!

* Program descriptions are accurate at time of inclusion. While I make every effort to keep the information up to date and accurate, I can not be responsible for changes in the individual programs. Be sure to read the terms and conditions before you sign up to any site.
