Qmee Offers an Easy Way to Earn Cash Simply by Searching – And It’s Completely Legit


 UPDATE: Qmee is no longer in beta so everyone can sign up now!

I’ve been around the Web for as long as it’s been in existence. No, it’s true. I remember the days pre-World Wide Web, where everything was super clunky and just text based. At the time, it was revolutionary and beyond awesome. Now, it’d be considered a joke.

Anyways, the point is, I’ve not only enjoyed surfing the Web for well over 15 years, but I’ve also worked online for most of those years. I’ve run a number of online shopping sites and did tremendous research into how to shop safely online, what scams to avoid, etc. And trust me, there were and still are a zillion and one ways to get ripped off online.

So when a company named Qmee approached me about a new way to “make money online simply by doing what you normally do,” you better believe I was more than a bit skeptical. But you know what? I’ve given them a thorough test drive and I’m both shocked and pleased to say that they are indeed legit.

I’m incredibly impressed with this UK company actually. It’s a fairly simple concept that makes complete sense from a business standpoint. It’s also super easy for the consumer to use and earn some extra cash.

Okay, so what is Qmee?

Qmee is a basic app that installs on your browser and then works seamlessly behind the scenes. That’s one of my favorite parts. Once you install it, you don’t need to press any special buttons or even remember to launch it. It’s all automatic.

The next time you do a search on Google, you’ll see a small sidebar pane open up on the left side with a list of links. It looks pretty similar to the Sponsored Ads section you see on most search engines. Only instead of just knowing that specific companies paid to be in that prime real estate spot, the links in Qmee actually pay YOU.

I started with a simple Google search for Nintendo Wii and after a quick pause, the Qmee panel opened with suggested links.

Yes, advertisers paid to be on the Qmee list, but next to each link you’ll see exactly how much money you can earn simply by clicking. In my quick test, I saw ranges from 5 cents to 23 cents for just one link. Qmee’s FAQ says prices can even go as high as $1 per click.

Now the results that show up in Qmee’s list are only relevant links. I never found any odd links in there and the Qmee pane only appears if there are related links. Otherwise, you just continue on with your normal search.

Target from Qmee
I clicked on the Target link from Qmee’s suggestions and went straight to Target.com. You can also see the piggy bank icon in the upper right corner. Mouse over it and see your current balance.

What’s neat is, Qmee works with a variety of popular search sites including:

  • Google
  • Bing
  • Yahoo
  • Amazon
  • eBay

There’s currently no mobile app available, but Qmee’s reps say they are looking into it, as well as investigating other popular search sites.


Qmee Dashboard
The Qmee Dashboard. See how much money is in your piggy bank, how much you’ve earned overall, and decide whether you want to cash out or donate to charity.


But how do you get paid?

Here’s where the “It’s gotta be a scam” part comes in. Bloggers can attest to the fact that most affiliate or ad networks do pay you but there’s generally a minimum threshold you need to reach first (like $25 or $50) and payouts can come as late as 60 or 90 days after you’ve earned them. That’s a long time to find out if something is legit or not. Even Google’s AdSense makes you hit the $100 threshold before paying you.

With Qmee, it’s all instant. And there are no minimums.

Let that sink in for a second.

I tested things out, not believing it for a second. I quickly earned 80 cents in my piggy bank. I then went to my Qmee dashboard and clicked to Cash Out. (There’s also an option to donate your earnings to a couple of listed charities.) It zeroed out my Qmee Piggy Bank and within 30 seconds or so, I received an email saying that Qmee had send 80 cents to my PayPal account. And within a minute or so from that, my PayPal account had the funds.

I’m still shocked at how fast and easy this all is. Simple to install. Automatic to use when an available search pops up. And instant payments with no minimum. You better believe I’ll be using Qmee going forward, at least as long as the suggested links continue to be as good as what I’m seeing so far.

Here’s a quick video to recap just about everything I explained already. Plus, since they’re a UK company, you get to hear it all explained with a British accent. Everything sounds better with an accent!


What’s the Catch?

Like I said, there really is no catch. Well, you need to have a PayPal account to get paid, but I wouldn’t really consider that a catch. So I guess the only catch at the moment is that Qmee is still in Beta. So you can’t just go sign up. Sorry. You need to be invited first.

Luckily, you know a super awesome, friendly daddy blogger who happens to have a whole bunch of Qmee Beta Invites!

The first 100 people to click my link below and sign up with Qmee will get in. The fine folks at Qmee are looking to get their hands on a bunch more beta testers, so they’d love to have you sign up and offer any feedback to them as you use it. Yes, they’re in beta, but everything is fully functional and any money you earn is real and yours to keep.

  2. Roloman says

    It does seem a beautiful thing Qmee. I’ve never seen something so straightforward as this online.

    I wonder though, is there a max limit that someone can earn per day with it?

  4. nicole w says

    Thanks for posting this! I’m always looking for new online ways to earn extra money, but most are too much of a hassle! I use swagbucks too, but you have to search, search and search just to get a few swagbucks!

    Borrowing has become so simple and emergencies have ceased to be emergencies because of the convenience
    that one gets through the cash loans offered by the lenders.

    There are so many other cash services offered by your local pay day loan center than just
    cash advances.

    Sounds interesting. I am really wary about just clicking anything though. Does Qmee check every listing out to make sure they are legit and that no viruses are going to attach themselves or download? Thanks for the review and information. It really is an interesting concept.

    • says

      I don’t know about that, Carmen but most of the ones I’ve clicked on have been real popular legitimate ones. And for that matter, does Google check all of theirs? It’s really up to your browser or anti-virus program to catch them.

  7. Meghan says

    I think I’m going to try this but the one question I have is..After you click on the links from Qmee, do you have to buy something from the sponsored website in order to get paid?

    • says

      Hey Meghan! Sorry I didn’t see your question until just now! Nope, you just have to click the link and that’s it. Whether you buy something or not makes no difference!

      Hey there, TerriAnn! Good to see you on here! Yeah, that’s my favorite part, that you can choose your favorite search engine. Interesting point about the next gen of aff marketing. Could be!

    Too bad it’s something you need to install.. otherwise I would have given it a try.
    Swagbucks has become highly irritating with some searches and surveys not being credited.

    • says

      Exactly, Tamara. I’ve seen similar applications but you always need to use their crummy search engine. This one is fantastic, especially since it even works with Amazon!

    • says

      Well, maybe a little. I’ve tried Swagbucks and found it uber annoying. You have to go through their site, there’s links all over the place for things and you get points to cash in. Is there a minimum on Swagbucks before you can cash out?

      • says

        You don’t have to go through Swagbucks’ site! I use Firefox and have SB in my search bar. It’s just as easy as searching Google. But with Swagbucks you get points you can trade in for stuff. I usually earn about a $5 Amazon GC/month, just searching. (I don’t think I have any referrals.) It’s totally NOT a pain for me – the first “pay to search” thing that ever wasn’t.

        But I’m going to try this out, too; thanks!

        (I’ve been on the ‘net since the beginning, too. Way back when it was BBS’s and not the WWW. :) )
