    Back to savvystudent's original post...


    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]

    Oh absolutely, I'm lucky in that, bar a couple of slumps, I usually get at least 1 or 2 a week from them. I've had £100 from Populus this year, which I'm chuffed about.


    100%. It just does my swede in doing a mind-numbingly tedious 20 minute survey for pennies. And all the survey providers that say a survey is 5 minutes that turns into 35 minutes... Get in the sea.

    You must be a very attractive demographic. I get very few from Populus but I do like the £50 when I get it.

    I agree, I close down and report any survey that more than doubles the expected time. I also don't touch anything less than 2p per minute and only do the longer surveys if they pay significantly more. I screen shot towards the end so I've got evidence if I have to raise a ticket. Maybe I could earn more if I was less fussy but I accept lower earning as a consequence and my frustration levels are slightly lower, only slightly though

    Amen to that. At least Prolific and Populus are in the main actually quite interesting surveys of a reasonable length.

    Agreed. I really appreciate that the Prolific time estimates are fairly accurate.

    Im having a raft of video surveys about Canada this afternoon. They are a little lengthly - and one which included barbecued lobster has slightly put me off my dinner, but easy enough.

    Any other QMee users who are with TalkTalk ISP? For the last 3 weeks or so I have been unable to access any of the studies that appear on my dashboard when using my home broadband. Through a process of elimination it would seem that the problem lies with my broadband connection all of a sudden as I can access studies using other connections, (friends/buses/library etc). I haven't made any changes to my ISP account settings so I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing a similar problem?

    Such a shame as I have been averaging earning about £20 per week with QMee. It's been a dead loss trying to get any assistance from TalkTalk!!

    I agree with this. Populus, Prolific Yougov and Pinecone are great but the volume is low. Qmee helps with volume, and the few pence here and there add up nicely over the month

    I cashed out my earnings on Prolific and Qmee at the same time and then started again. To date I've earned more on Qmee by doing the odd survey here and there than I have on Prolific. I do a few different sites but some seem to take forever to get to a payout level.

    Screened out of six surveys in a row before answering a single question. The survey lures you in with a short time scale and much higher payment but as soon as you open the screen it says, 'We're sorry.' Has anyone ever managed to do one of these surveys? Why are they on the site if you can't do them?

    Happens to me too, but not quite to that extent.


    I suspect when you click the survey, Qmee then tells them some information (ie age) and that screens your out automatically. Obivously would be better if Qmee simply didn't show you such surveys.


    They do still ask questions that Qmee knows the answer to, I think they do that to check you are answering honestly though.


    Still the best survey site in my experience though, I've earned about £20 in three days doing the odd survey here and there.

    £20 in 3 days is quite good you must be either getting the high paid ones or averaging 7-10 surveys per day.

    Odd thing i was thinking was the surveys that pay £1+ and usually want higher management individuals... Wondering if those people with high positions actually use Qmee lol. Why would they??!

    High five i've worked very hard for today and have just earned £1.90 for a few hours of hardcore surveying.

    I thought i should try again after having some time away. Just thought i had, does anyone actually give their earnings to charity?

    Nice short survey, didnt take long. No catch you out questions.

    A proper genuine survey with a genuine salary question, None of these stupid options £20,000- £30,000 £1,000,000+

    The lowest was nice and low targeting the underpaid and overworked range of people.
