Top Companies That Pay You to Search the Web

There are countless ways to make money by searching the internet. Today, I will be going over seven of them.

1. Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a unique site.

You can acquire “Swagbucks” by doing tasks such as surveys, shopping, watching videos and searching on their website. The website is very easy to navigate. You can earn cash and gift cards with Swagbucks.

I’ve been using Swagbucks on and off since 2013 to make extra money. It’s something that anyone can do. For instance, you can do some of the tasks during your lunch break. Or you can also do some tasks if you’re bored at home from time to time.

One of my favorite ways to make money with Swagbucks is by watching the videos. There are different categories for you to watch such as sports, fitness and food.  Swagbucks has videos for everyone.

The lowest amount of cash that you can receive is $25. You get that by redeeming 2500 Swagbucks. They pay you the money via PayPal. You can get cash in quantities of $25, $50, $100, or $250.

Swagbucks has a couple of ways that you can earn more points. For example, you can get a $5 bonus for referring a friend. And they are very active on Facebook and Twitter. So you should also follow their social media handles.

Also, they post swag codes every day that are worth different amounts to help you earn points. It’s an easy way for you to make more money with the program.

2. Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars is one of the most reliable of these types of websites. The way that it works is that advertisers pay Inbox Dollars to promote their site to members. Then Inbox Dollars offers you a portion of their profit in exchange for visiting the website or signing up.

They’ll pay you to search the internet. And they will also pay you to read emails, sign up for offers and leave reviews.

Joining Inbox Dollars is free. It’s is a great way to earn money online. And the best thing is that they give you $5 to sign up.

Inbox Dollars requires that you gather at least $30 before you can cash out and they pay you by sending a check. Inbox Dollars has a ton of offers in addition to searching the internet. That makes it relatively easy for you to get to that $30 cash out level.

3. CashCrate

CashCrate works kind of like Swagbucks. You can get paid for Internet searches if you search using the CashCrate search bar that’s at the top of the website page. Note that you won’t make big money by searching with CashCrate.

They limit the pay per search and limit pay to only ten searches per day. However, you can get paid for doing other tasks at CashCrate, such as:

  • taking surveys
  • referring others
  • shopping online
  • trying new products
  • and more

Also, CashCrate will give you a buck just for signing up.

4. MobileXpression

MobileXpression uses member Internet searches to give feedback to companies. The goal? To understand the trends and patterns affecting the mobile internet better.

Using your phone to make money with the MobileXpression app is simple. Once you install it on your phone, that’s all you have to do. Then you use your phone to search as you normally would. As a result, the company will send you gift cards to Amazon for assisting them.

In addition, you’ll get entered into their sweepstakes. They give away anywhere from $100 to $100,000 in sweepstakes contests. The more you search, the more sweepstakes entries you get.

5. Honey

The Honey app is a browser extension you install on your computer or mobile device. And when you use the extension to shop online, Honey will search for discounts for you. Here’s how it works.

Let’s say you’re searching for internet shopping deals. As you go to checkout, just click the Honey button on your device. Honey will automatically “pay” you and lower your price if it finds any discounts.

Also, the app will pay you in points whenever you shop online. You can use the points to get gift cards from Honey.

6. Qmee

Qmee is a very popular website which gives people a chance to earn money. It is a free shopping tool and cash reward app that allows people to make quick money.

First, you need to install this app. Then it will show results on the left side of your browser. Simply click the results that interest you and earn cash.

Qmee has additional advertisers and has built a network of companies. It is good for someone who is looking for the lowest price of the particular product.

And it’s good for those who want to earn extra money too. The app will give you rewards if any of the results interest you. You just have to click on it to earn your reward.

To be sure, you won’t get rich with Qmee. But you can make enough money to pay a bill or pay down a little bit of debt.

Qmee works with several companies such as Walmart, Yahoo, Best Buy, eBay and Google. So if you frequently shop online, Qmee should be something that you should check out. And as stated earlier, it’s free, and it doesn’t require any extra time.

7. Microsoft Rewards

Microsoft Rewards, like Bing Rewards, will enable you to earn points for searching with Bing. You can earn points in more ways like when you browse the web. Or when you shop at the Windows and Microsoft stores. You simply need to remain signed in to your Microsoft account.

Microsoft Rewards are an easy way to earn money searching online. You just need to sign up through the Microsoft store to earn great rewards. Also, you gain at least 1 point for each $1 spent at the Microsoft Store.

You will recover your points for discounts at the Microsoft Store or use them to get free games, music or movies. The more you use or purchase Microsoft items, the more freebies you’ll get rewards in return.

    I have heard about Swagbucks before, but not the other 3. Thanks so much for sharing them with me! I will definitely have to look into them.

    It’s good, but the problem that I face is that I can’t sign up when I am in Rwanda. Why?

    • Deacon says:

      Unfortunately, that is up to each individual company. You would just have to check with each one to see if they are available. I hope you find one that is so you can make money. Don’t give up!

    MyPoints and iRazoo also allow you to earn money by searching the web. Mypoints is very similar to Swagbucks. I think they are owned by the same parent company, but I am not 100% sure.

    People can’t sign up to these sites.

    • Deacon says:

      I’m sorry you feel that way. I know people who have accounts with some of these sites. They probably aren’t getting rich with them, but they are getting some benefits.
