UPDATE: Qmee featured my story
Before you ask, I am not sponsored by Qmee. I am only doing this because I love it
For the past 6 years, on and off, I have been taking surveys on Qmee. Out of all the survey apps I have used, Qmee is by far the best app that I ever used. The usability, the offers, the bonuses — this survey site exceeded my expectations. Today, I’m going to give a very short review of Qmee.
About Qmee: Qmee is a survey service founded in 2012 by Jonathan Knight and Nick Sutton. According to the website, it was created to bring brands and their users closer together, and it’s usually done through surveys, offers, deals, and gaming. When I started, they only had surveys and offers.
Creating your profile: When you create your profile, you will be presented with profile details to fill out. This will help you land surveys that best fit your description. You’d want to get to 100% as soon as possible to get the best matches. Among the categories listed are home, work, gaming, shopping, and leisure. You can change these at anytime
Explore Qmee: Click on Explore Qmee and you’ll be given 11 challenges to complete. Some can be done quickly, like checking out a deal or completing your profile details. Others can take a while to complete, like unlocking 5 oinq’s (yes, that’s what they call it) by taking part in a daily poll and/or filling out a survey
Finishing your first survey: You can actually take part in a survey right away. The cool thing about Qmee is that because the site finds the best surveys based on your profile, you have a higher chance of completion. That doesn’t mean you will complete each survey, but you will find yourself completing multiple surveys daily. Once you successfully complete the survey, you earn the reward and you can actually cash out right there. Surveys are where I made the majority of my money on Qmee.
Cashout options: In the cashout options, you can either send your earnings to your Paypal account or your Venmo account, you can obtain gift cards, or you can donate to charity. With these options, you get to decide where you put your earnings. Just make sure you connect your Paypal account to your Qmee account before you cash out your earnings
Daily polls and pop quizzes: You can also take part in daily polls and have a chance to earn money by answering a pop quiz. You have 15 seconds to answer the question and it runs twice a day. A correct answer will net you 3 cents. Participating in the daily poll will add a day to your active streak
5-day Oinq streak: You get an increase of 10% in earnings for surveys when you log in at least 5 days in a row. The deal resets if you miss a day, and you’ll have to log in for 5 days to reactivate it.
Offers/deals/gaming: Besides surveys, you can also earn a percentage of cashback or actual cash by taking part in offers, deals, and gaming. They all have different rules on how to obtain the reward, so whichever one you choose, make sure you follow all the rules to receive your reward (usually you get them in 30 days). Usually, they pay out in 30-60 days.
Browser extension: You can download the browser extension to earn while your search on Google, Amazon, or wherever you shop online. Besides surveys, I have made some cash searching for things online. Just remember that you have to do this naturally for it to count. I had it installed on my Google Chrome literally the day I signed up, and it’s fairly easy to do it.
Qmee app: The app is available on the App Store and on Google play. The functionality is the same as the web version, so you can fill out surveys and receive cashback as you go. I have the app installed on my phone and on my tablet.
What I have noticed when I use both web and app versions is that some surveys are only available on one of two platforms. That’s why when I fill out surveys, I make the habit of using both web and the app to maximize my earnings. Overall, it’s pocket money and it has so far helped me save for things and filled a void that my freelance job couldn’t.
You get three referral links when you sign up and you get the rewards based on which link someone clicks on. Here are my three referral links: the first link I keep $1; the second link splits $0.50 each; the third link you keep $1. Whichever one you choose, I hope you have a great experience on Qmee.
