New browser app offers cash for search

Posted: Updated:

Qmee, a free browser app that offers cash rewards when users search online, officially launched in the United States Monday.

Qmee works seamlessly in the background so when users search Google, Bing, Yahoo, Amazon or eBay, extra results appear in a side bar with cash rewards displayed. If a Qmee-suggested result is clicked, a cash reward is instantly earned. The cash rewards can be redeemed immediately through a PayPal account or donated to charity.

Qmee gives advertisers exposure in an extremely competitive environment where customers are already qualified as showing purchase intent. It allows advertisers to be visible at an early stage of the buying process, making it a fairer playing field.

"Qmee aims to reward genuine users who interact with advertisers. It is a win-win situation for both parties. Users feel engaged and advertisers achieve good return on their investments," said Jonathan Knight, Founder of Qmee.

"I was pleasantly surprised by how easy Qmee is to use and even more impressed by the immediate results," said Andrew Kardon, blogger at MommysBusy.com. "Once you download the add-on, you don't even realize it is there unless your search produces relevant results."

Qmee is currently available in the United Kingdom and United States on Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer and Safari.
