    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]

    I'm loving Qmee, been a member for a couple years. Regularly get rewarded for ordering pizza (and often receive discounts), as well as completing the shorter surveys every now and then. The instant payments are brilliant.

    Am I doing something wrong with searching? I've just started using Qmee this week but I don't think I've had a single search win yet. Do you get them when you search direct on ebay/Amazon etc, or do you go to Google first, search there and do it that way...? Might having the Swagbucks Swagbutton extension be interfering with it?

    Sorry to be dense, the FAQ didn't seem to offer much help

    Hi, sorry to hear that.
    They seem to be run by Toluna who have similar habits. From the terms of service:

    If your account has not been used for one (1) year or more we will retain the balance in the account, otherwise we will pay the balance of the account to you.

    Boohoo and Missguided are frequent winners for me (as in maybe twice a week), else just keep searching. Also check the surveys as there can be ones which offer some coinage and dont take too long, Id avoid the ones which are 20p for 40 minutes though.

    Just started with Qmee again. Unfortunately I stopped using it for just a little too long and they reset my points earnt.(Didn't realise they did this) Bit annoying but you live and learn!
