For most, reading emails is a daily task that requires very little thought or effort. Why not earn some extra spending money while you're at it? This article will show you how to get paid to read emails...

Items you will need

  • An active email address
  • Time to register for each website
Step 1

Visit the websites of your choice and register an account. Most of the sites require a short profile with your basic information which will target the emails you receive to your specific interests. Some sites may also require additional time to review and approve your account. Keep this in mind and read the terms of service thoroughly for rules.

Step 2

Check your email every couple of days to stay on top of the incoming messages and continue to get paid to read emails. In most cases, you can expect to receive between 1 to 10 paid emails per day. Click on each message and follow the instructions within. Usually you will have to click on a link within the email to get credit for viewing the advertisement.

Step 3

Each website pays differently, but you can expect to make between 2¢ - 5¢ for each email you read. Check each site for further details.

Step 4

Remember that pennies add up! Joining multiple sites and reading their emails each day will have a cumulative effect on your earnings. Since it's only taking a few minutes of your time each day, it's worth the extra effort up front to sign up for as many as you can. The more you read, the more you'll earn.
