Do you fancy earning some extra cash or some gift cards in your free time? Take a look at my Qmee review to see how much you can expect to earn and whether it’s worth joining.
Many survey sites have an unnecessarily bad reputation. Unfortunately, most people head into them thinking that they can start a new career and make a full-time living from it.
The truth is, most people should only look at taking surveys as an extra income. But with that said, there’s no reason why you can’t earn more than £1000 every year from them without much effort. In fact, if you search for my income reports, you can see that I make over £6000.
Qmee is quite popular amongst some of the forums I visit, so I thought I would test them out for myself.
What is Qmee?
Qmee is a site that rewards you with cash for completing surveys. But not only that, you can earn when searching the internet, completing offers or referring friends.
Taken from their site:
Qmee is a free, easy to use browser and mobile app, where you can earn real cash rewards for sharing your opinion and for engaging with your favorite brands.
With the Qmee mobile app, you can get paid to take surveys on the go – share your opinions with fun and engaging paid surveys and you’ll get a cash reward for each one you complete. We find the best surveys that fit your profile!
Is Qmee a legitimate survey site?
Qmee shares headquarters between London and New York with their UK base in Reading. They have been running since 2010.
I have been using the site for over a year and never had any issues. Surveys pay out promptly and customer service are always quick to answer any questions.
Qmee has a constant supply of surveys, more than most sites I visit. This gives you plenty of opportunities to earn.
You’re not restricted to earning from just surveys either. Install the Qmee browser extension on to your computer and you can earn cash rewards when you search the web. Plus, Qmee will often find you a useful discount code for shops you’re searching for.
And complete surveys (or the daily question) for 5 days in a row and you’ll earn a 10% bonus for every completed survey.
Qmee also provides an app, which is very handy if you want to complete surveys on the go.
Unlike some of its rivals, Qmee gives you a fairly accurate indication of how long a survey actually takes. All experienced survey takers out there know that there are sites that will tell you a survey takes 15 minutes when really, it takes 30. Qmee calculates how long the average user takes and gives you an expected time versus the actual time. For example, the survey below was expected to take 12 minutes, when in fact, it took just 6.
There is also a referral scheme available if you fancy earning a bit extra. It’s only £1, but it all counts. You can either keep it all for yourself, split it with your friend or give it all to them!
I was a little unsure whether to put this in the good or the bad section but here it is. Qmee allows you to report surveys if they are screening you out near the end, take too long or if they’re asking for too much personal information.
This is good but I would prefer the screening process to happen before the surveys reach us as it appears it happens a lot. That means people could be caught out before Qmee finds out.
There are some poorly paid surveys on offer so I wouldn’t accept everything that appears on your dashboard.
You’ll notice on the Qmee website or app a tab called ‘offers’. Simply click on a link, sign up to the offer and receive money into your Qmee account.
Now, this might seem quite good. For example, you can earn £25 for joining EDF or £30 for NOW TV Broadband.
That is until you visit the TopCashback website. They’re offering £120 and £100 for the same offer.
But if those kind of offers don’t appeal, how about earning money from games? There are options to download games – usually to your phone, with a target to reach a certain level. Once you reach that level, money will be added to your Qmee account. You can earn anything between 50 pence and £20. This might seem like easy money, but some of these games have time limits and you will be hard-pushed to reach them.
How much can you earn from Qmee?
Pay varies wildly for surveys. I have had 6 or 7 surveys within minutes of each other that paid £1.30 for 9 minutes work. I have also had surveys that pay 52 pence for over 20 minutes. Payment terms are very good though. There’s no minimum cashout if you choose PayPal and the money hits your account almost instantly.
If you want a gift card, these all start from £5 but are often sent instantly when you order.
If you choose your surveys wisely, expect to earn around £6 per hour.
How much does Qmee pay per search?
Unfortunately, Qmee won’t pay you every time you make a search. In fact, I find that you will only be paid for searching the web every 4-5 days. Searching for a term such as ‘boohoo’ will give 5p. Then, press back on the browser and it will give another 4p.
The Qmee pop quiz
Not only can you earn a little extra with searching, you can also complete a pop quiz. These appear from time-to-time next to the daily poll. Okay, so they’re only worth 3 pence, but still a bit of fun.
My Qmee review conclusion
Yep, I like Qmee and a little disappointed I hadn’t joined sooner. This is a site I can earn between £30 and £40 per month without too much effort. I would ignore the ‘offers’ page though as you can get better deals elsewhere.
If you want to join, then click on my link below and we both earn 50 pence when you make your first cashout through PayPal. Yes, I am splitting the referral fee as I’m not generous enough to give you everything.
If my Qmee review hasn’t convinced you to join, why not take a look at my best paid survey sites instead?
What is the fastest way to make money on Qmee?
Download the app. That way you will receive notifications straight to your phone when new surveys are available. There are also surveys for mobile users which can’t be accessed through a computer.
If you don’t mind notifications, turn them on for your computer. Qmee will then notify you when something new comes in.
If you’re comfortable with being filmed, allow web surveys to be turned on. All they usually do is record your reaction when you watch a video. They tend to pay better than normal surveys.
Although there are always surveys available, they come and go quite quickly.
Don’t pay much attention to whether a survey is ‘hot’ or not. Just look at how much it pays and how long it takes.
Complete the daily question 5 times in a row so you can earn 10% more.
