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 [Removed]

    Please do not post referrals here. I have a thread set up in the referrals section, if anyone wants an invite. Although at the moment no one gets anything from referrals.

    It's not a referral, it's an invite code. And I don't get anything from it.

    I have had it for 2 weeks now and have earned £7 (so about 50p a day).

    As I say, about £5 a week but that's mostly passive (ie. not trying to get high paying clicks). I suppose you could do quite well for yourself if you do lots of searching ;)

    Just done this and earned 16p from two searches.

    Most seem to be 8p.

    Anybody found any better ones?

    Interestingly you earn 8p by clicking through to MSE.

    In that case I wonder who's paying for the clicks?

    You might wanna be careful how you use this.....

    This item can read every page that you visit - your bank, your web email, your Facebook page and so on. Often, this kind of item needs to see all pages, so that it can perform a limited task such as looking for RSS feeds to which you might want to subscribe.
    Caution: Besides seeing all your pages, this item could use your credential (cookies) to request or modify your data from websites.
