    Has anyone used Qmee.com? I signed up last week via an invite and so far have cashed out £4.30 to my Paypal, and everything looks legit.

    The idea is that you install an app in your browser which when you search using Google, Bing, Amazon or eBay sometimes text ads will appear next to the results along with an amount you get for clicking on them. Tends to be around 7-15p depending on the search.

    It's still in beta and invite-only but I know there's a few codes around. This is the one I used and still seems to be working https://www.qmee.com/?invite=C9D41FA5

    This sounds odd, who is paying for the clicks?

    Wow just signed up and cashed out £0.46...it was in my paypal account in seconds.
    Dont think I would use this on my main browser though - Message from Chrome:
    This extension can access:
    • Your data on all websites
    • Your tabs and browsing activity
    • Your bookmarks
    • Your browsing history
    You might wanna be careful how you use this.....

    Just tried installing on another browser too but don't get any results... maybe only works for one install per account.

    Meanwhile, I'm up to £14.30 so far not bad!

    I had a play with it sometime last week but it wouldnt work for me (the search box didnt come up).

    Ive done some regular maintenance on my pc this afternoon and was suprised at the amount of junk it dumped on my pc.

    All gone now though.

    I'm on £14 now!!

    I think it limits you everyday but as soon as it runs out for that day I just stop and then do it again the next day.

    I must admit that I have a slight concern about the amount of information it may be storing about me but I do have a Facebook, Twitter account etc so if people wanted my info they would have it already.

    I'm keen to see how much I can really make from this. I reckon at least £150 by next Christmas (some great extra dosh for prezzies).

    Basically, it is a clever piece of software that knows how long you spend on sites after clicking, how much you search high value terms (you can't trick it).

    The most I earn in a day is around 80p.

    I just choose a couple of terms like thermal vest, gold diamond ring, silver diamond ring, thermal underwear etc etc.

    Then I search them in both Amazon and eBay (Google doesn't work for me anymore).

    Then when you click on each link make sure you click around the site, add some things to the basket and then go as far as you can without paying.
