I have never in my life seen it spelled with a "q" nor would I ever spell it with a "q." "Perq" just looks stupid to me. "Perk" is how an English speaker would normally spell that word, and that's what I go for. Just like "trank" is short for "tranquilizer." (Although Scrabble will accept it with a "q", it's not the standard spelling, and not included in Merriam-Webster or American Heritage dictionaries.)
