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!
My main problem with Pinecone is that they are a bit slow and 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. While I've not redeemed an award yet to know how that process is, the sheer number of items offered is incredible such as books, movies, music, gift cards and so on, rather like Harris Poll used to be.
Their surveys are varied interesting. They don't seem to have the same problem with my age as other sites. Have excellent customer service and a wonderful rewards program. You do have to be recommended to join as they don't advertise. Wish all sites were like Pinecone.
this is one of the best sites out there. they allow you to be paid after each survey
Five or six surveys a month by invitation only. The surveys are very well designed and efficient with little redundancy in the questions. The result is that will find out what they want and need to know in ten minutes while many others would take you fifteen to twenty. Another plus is that if you can't continue the survey (i.e. lose connection) you can pick it up where you left off! You have to really look for the cash payout, but once you find it you have options like getting mailed a check, a debit card or PayPal. They have a lot of to select from their catalog. Many items are cheap brands that are over priced, but there are some good "specials" that you can get. I choose to be sent a check and it arrives within a week!!
They are my favorite. It's a super honest site where you can cash out after just one survey.They even sent me a product to evaluate once, which I loved. I wish I qualified for more surveys! Right now it's about 3-4 a month. I took a half of the star out for canned responses when trying to reach customer service. Other than that, I love them!
