i joined back in July, since ive made a huge amount of $2 bucks and change.
they send you emails to say a survey is waiting, then you log in and attempt to begin and it tells you you arent qualified, finds you another to ''supposedly fit your profile'' and repeats disqualified. dont bother with this waste of a site.
UPDATE its been 1 year since i signed up, looking at my last review in july 2014, its now july 2015, unable to cashout my HUGE $10.63. everytime i try it says error try again, i have sent emails to company with no reply.
I get a lot of invites but when I try to take the survey I never qualify. So I have about 3 dollars if that and I've been with them almost a year.
I don't qualify for very many surveys on the site but when they paid out, I got paid over $1.00 which was cool
I've been sent quite a lot of survey invitations by email but I have frequently been automatically screened out as soon as I click on a survey link. This has been a frustrating experience so far, but it's still early days (I've been a member for just over a month) so I'll stick it out for a bit longer.
I was a very active panelist for QM for almost a year. By active, I mean multiple invites for surveys per week, in which I qualified for many of them. I went ahead to take a $3.10 (if memory serves me correctly) survey for an I-Say/Ipsos 30 minutes on skin care and makeup brands. I spent over 40 minutes on this survey, having to fill out blank boxes and after 40 minutes, during the last few final demographic questions, the page stalled, I then received an error. I emailed QM at once, giving them details as to what happened. This was on March 1st. I sent at least 13 emails to them, trying to get them to look into what happened and credit me accordingly. They gave me the run around and sent me the usual copy and paste email for a month and ignored every email I sent after March 30th. They never gave me an answer of any kind, an apology for the inconvenience or anything. Nor did they say they looked into the error. They have no respect for the panelists! Don't waste any time or energy with this company! They are beyond rude and could care less! My last email to them was May 1st and after being ignored again, I closed my account.

I sent that email to a different email support in hopes to receive support from someone. It was forwarded but never answered as far as I saw as I never received a reply! No respect!
On top of that, the surveys pay less and less. Many recently were for a nickle for 5 minutes that would take 15.
