1Q.com Review: Is it a Scam?
Links & ads you may click on this blog pay the bills & keep this site free for you. Thanks for supporting!
Recently I discussed a great little survey company called Swagbucks.com which pays you $1 for answering 1 question poll. It's a great site that tends to pay in a few days after taking your poll which is great. But maybe waiting a day or two for your money is just too painful you. LOL, Well, if you're that important…. I mean EAGER you're going to love my 1Q.com Review.
So what is 1Q.com?
Companies hire 1Q.com to do market research for them on various topics. Once they have a topic they text a multiple choice question to their member's cell phone via the app or text message. Once their members reply, this information is shared with the companies who can get quick market research from 1Q and you as a member get paid for a few short minutes of your time.
How & when do I get poll questions?
Questions will be sent via a text message or you can download the app to receive questions. Either way, you will always be instantly notified of the question that will take a couple of seconds to answer. Speaking of downloading, did you know that InboxDollars.com and Swagbucks.com pays you for downloading free smartphone and tablet apps? Now You Do!
Let's Talk Money
They seem to pay anywhere from $.25 to $1 per survey 1 question poll. Best of all they pay you the money via PayPal damn near instantly. I took a survey a few minutes after signing up and minutes later there was $. 25 in the PayPal account. See the proof here.
1Q.com Tips & Hacks
- Fill in your profile completely to earn more money and increase your chances of getting more surveys.
- Download the app and leave location checking on. If you do if you're near an event, location or store that companies want your feedback on you'll receive an alert to answer a poll.

Obviously, no company is without complaints, even if it's legitimate. So we might as well just discuss them here so you can make an informed decision.
Cellphone or Smartphone required
If you're one of those people that are still communicating by smoke signals or pigeons, then this opportunity isn't for you. If you have a beeper/pager that's a bit of an upgrade but not quite enough. To make money with this opportunity you need to step up your game and have either a dumb cell phone that receives text or a smartphone to download the iOS or Android app. That said, it may still be hard to justify buying a new smartphone and the expensive data plan just to make some extra money. However, there are other options like InboxDollars.com, SurveyJunkie.com, FusionCash.com & Swagbucks.com that will pay you for polls and surveys and you don't need a smartphone.
Missing Verification Code
When you sign up for 1Q.com they send you a verification via text. There have been complaints that people have never received the code. I suspect these people aren't using their real cell phone numbers or possible using virtual services like Google Voice. I also think depending on your geographic location the system may not send you a text because you're not part of a country that 1Q.com services. Either way, I received my verification code with no issues.
Member Referral Program is on hold
They currently have a referral program to recruit companies that may be looking to do research. I don't think that will be useful to most of us. We all probably know one or two people that would appreciate making a little quick cash for answering a poll. But how many of us really know companies that are in need of market research? So most of us won't really make money with their referral program as it stands now. Unfortunately, it's always easier to recruit other members, but if 1Q.com can't get clients to pay for surveys than it's pointless for them to recruit more people.
Need to be Fast & Furious
Like most surveys, you need to be in it to win it. With 1Q.com this is no difference. You'll usually receive a text when new surveys are available or if you're using the app, you'll get an alert as well. If you happen to miss those notifications and then try to answer the survey you may not qualify to earn anything because they've received all the response they need. So you need to be fast. Most of us check our text regularly so it shouldn't be an issue. But it's something to note.
It's extra money
Surveys are based on supply and demand. If a company doesn't need feedback from your demographics you won't get a survey. It's nothing personal. But you may just be part of a group that companies and advertisers aren't targeting or don't care about. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but let's keep it real. These companies usually conduct research to make themselves money and not to make you money. So they can't afford to be sending surveys to people who aren't their target audience. All that said, don't depend on this for consistent money. If you're looking for “real consistent money”, you need a work at home job or check out My #1 Recommendation.
So is 1Q.com Legitimate or a Scam?
It seems legit to me at the time of this review. You can make some quick extra money with this opportunity. You combine it with other multiple streams of extra income and it can add up over time. These opportunities, work even better when you're able to recruit other people to do them as well because of their referral programs that pay you to share their programs with others. Obviously, you know your boy makes a great living sharing legitimate opportunities like this with you because of what My #1 Free Recommendation has taught me. When you combine referring people and actually doing the activities that they pay you to do, it adds up! Either way, it's your choice.
Let me know what you guys think of this opportunity. I put this up there with some of my other favorite survey related opportunities such as InboxDollars.com, SurveyJunkie.com, FusionCash.com & SwagBucks.com because they're quick and easy. I hate surveys that feel like a damn SAT test that can take half your life to complete and you only get a few cents if at all.
Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts or questions down below. If you'd like to share some other great companies you're making legitimate money with I'd love to hear about it too. Thanks for reading this 1Q.com review. Hopefully, you'll join me and sign up as well.
Thanks for the continued support.
