Occasionally Pincone may mail out products for their members to test from home.
Please note that PInecone Research has been targeted by a cashier's check scam. If you receive a large, unexpected check seemingly from Pinecone, DO NOT cash it!
I have been a member since late 1999 amd have never had a problem with them. They send alot of surveys for you to complete and at $3.00 each i have earned over 200 dollars in the last year. For around 15 minutes of work.
Great site, very regular with invitations and usually you can't disqualify out because they're more specific about their invitations -- I don't get invites from Pinecone and then get told, "Sorry, you didn't qualify." Frequently a survey will leave to a home product test which will lead to another survey and another $3.00. Turn-around between taking the survey and payment is usually no more than 3-4 days. I've been a member since back in the day when US members made $5.00/survey and they mailed checks. And despite the reduction in amount/survey, I stay with them because they ARE so reliable.
I HIGHLY recommend you join this panel.
Have been with them almost a year and normally it's a great survey site with enjoyable surveys to take, wonderful products to test and fairly quick payments.
But lately it's been a bit of a drag thanks to their switching to Vivaxis for some of the surveys. For unknown reasons (perhaps over simple website/technical difficulties) Vivaxis surveys sometimes don't get marked as complete so payment gets withheld over Ms. Scott thinking the survey was not finished.
A few surveys have needed additional questions answered before payment is made (because the questions weren't printed on the survey to begin with) and apparently payments can also get held up over this issue.
This was a great survey site before these problems began and I'm hoping it can be great once again. I think Pinecone just needs to smooth out some of the bumps in the road they've been having with Vivaxis and not issuing surveys that have all their questions included to begin with in order to get themselves back on track.
This is my favourite site! £3 per survey and reasonably regular products to test, then another £3 for your evaluation! Great stuff.
Highly recommended as you are well rewarded. I only wish they sent more surveys so could build up payouts quicker and receive more products to trial.
Pinecone is a pretty good company, if a bit slow, I get at most two surveys from them a week, tops. They have a system were they first e-mail a set of 'qualifying questions' which may or may not get a survey sent to you. Once you take the survey, it takes a day or two for the rewards (typically 300 points) to get posted to your account. The surveys themselves thus far have had the same 'format', so once you take a few you know what to expect. The sheer number of reward items offered is incredible such as books, movies, music, gift cards and so on, rather like Harris Poll used to be. I just ordered my first reward from them, it arrived in roughly a week and they even sent me e-mails telling me when it was mailed, so kudos for that.
