Oh look at you all set up with your own access to the internet. You’re a regular twenty first century gal, huh? So I’m assuming you use Google, or have at the very least heard of it. I know, right? It’s pretty awesome but here’s how to make it even better. This one is a no brainer. Basically it’s a system whereby when you search the internet, as well as the original search results you’ll also get a side panel of Qmee advertisements and when you click on one of them a small amount of money is added to your ‘piggybank’. The amount of money you’ll earn when clicking on the advert is also rather handily displayed next to the advert.
These amounts aren’t huge – I think the highest I’ve had is 9p and the lowest 4p, however if you’re searching normally and clicking only something you’re actually interested in, then wahey 4p is better off in your pot, right? It all adds up. So how does it work? Hop over to the sign up and then you’ll be directed to download the free Google Chrome extension. Once downloaded you’ll notice a small green Q next to the url/search bar at the top of your web pages. You can click this at any time and it will tell you how much money you have in your account. Now, when you’re searching on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Amazon or eBay from time to time on top of the regular search results you’ll also notice a small sidebar appear on to the side which contains appropriate advertisements.
Next to each ad you’ll notice a monetary figure and this is the amount you’ll gain from clicking on the ad. I usually earn around £3 a week however at the moment as we’re in the process of house hunting and figuring out how much we would need to spend on kitchens and bathrooms my weekly Qmee earnings have crept up to about £6 purely because I’m searching for a wider and varied amount of items. Qmee won’t make you rich but if you’re searching anyway you might as well have a few extra pennies at the end of the month. Qmee explain how it works. All you need to claim your money is a Paypal account and you can cash out at any point. Plus you can also donate the contents of your piggybank to charity too.
