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.

1Q.com complaints

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.

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.

  1. When I tried to sign up for Poll Buzzer, I am told that my PayPal account is unknown or unverified or that my first and last names do not match my PayPal account. Since I know all of these possible errors are inaccurate and the “click here for more information” link leads only to a blank page, am I to conclude that Poll Buzzer is now either defunct or not accepting new users?

    • That might be the case. I haven’t received a survey from them in a while. But if you google poll buzzer, you should be able to find some information to confirm if they’re still around.

    • Hi Edyta,

      I don’t know your cell phone plan. Most cell phone plans have unlimited texting nowadays. But if your cell phone plan only provides you a certain number of texts per month than any text you send or receive to anyone including 1q will probably count. But again you would know your plan better than me. Either way you’re not going to get lots of texts from 1q every day or month. Its very random. I hope this helps.

  2. I am using the app and I like it. They pay right away. The only thing is it takes a while for a question to come up. Other than that I like it.

    • Hey Ebony,

      I agree. I’ve been getting a lot more text messages from them with survey questions. So it seems to be improving. But I really do enjoy it as well. I wish the surveys were more consistent and paid more. But it’s easy and fast money. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience.

    • Hey Jay,

      I agree. Although in the last two weeks they’ve been texting me multiple part polls and have really stepped up their game. I’ve made a few backs in the last couple of weeks for answering these text polls. So hopefully it picks up for you as well.

  3. I signed up a few weeks ago and just got a question today. I answered it and immediately got a notice that $0.50 would be deposited to my PayPal account. Within 5 minutes, PayPal confirmed that the money had been deposited. Like you said, this company does not pay enough to make you rich but it definitely pays and is one of the easiest I have tried! Almost free money!

    • Hey HK!

      Thanks for sharing your experience with this company. I agree with you it feels like free money. Obviously I wish we got more of these surveys but regardless, I love easy opportunities like this.

  4. Thank you for making it easy on me. Glad there is a go to guy that does the research for us all. Ive been burnt many a times doing my own research. lol. I signed up and will be looking for more word from you. Thank you bro, and have a good day. darrell

    • You’re welcome Darrell! It’s always great to be appreciated. Be sure to become a subscriber if you haven’t already so you don’t miss new opportunities I may cover.

  5. Eddy, thank you again for your wonderful job reviewing this company. I would like to bring to you attention a small observation, not everybody use Apple products, there are some people like me that use windows base equipment or Android cellphones, why am I saying this ? because the links that you put in this review for your followers to sign up to this opportunity takes you to iTunes page and it offers the apple version of this app. 🙂

    Thank you again and keep up the hard work !!!

    Cheers !
