"Outstanding payment immediately"

This site is not paying much but each survey is 3.00 and it goes within one day to Paypal


"Excellent survey site"
Saturday, May 30, 2015 by Margaret

Pinecone Research my favorite survey site. The surveys they send are to the point, not repetitive and are arranged uniformly. Pinecone is easy to work with and responds to emails quickly. The reward points are credited quickly usually within 1 day and the cash incentive is the best I have encountered, the cash incentive is my favorite and they send your it quickly. Pinecone also offers a lot of product testing, which I enjoy. Pinecone research is a reliable, consistent and fun survey site. I highly recommend them.


"Honest & Most Reputable"
Friday, May 29, 2015 by Anita

Out of all survey sites I have been a member with or still am with some, Pinecone Research runs an honest business. You do not have to qualify for their surveys, they will send 2-5 surveys a month and they are always $3.00 and the average time to complete is 15 to 30 min. Even if you do not use the products or not interested they still want to know what you like or do not like about it etc. I appreciate them and wish others would follow this type of honesty and respectful behavior, instead of being deceived and cheated out of rewards and using half the time stated to many times toward the end being cut off and sent the same type of auto responses that do not justify these sneaky tactics. I know my time spent taking Pinecone's surveys will never be a waste of my time or taken advantage of. After my first 14 months I cashed out $108.00 and that was 5 1/2 months ago and now I have over $50.00 since then. Only once in awhile the surveys took over 30 min. and wish it was a little higher reward, however, a few times I tested the product and the followup surveys paid an additional $3.00. If this review sounds as good to you as I feel they are then sign up with them while they are still taking on panelists.


"Consistent Surveys, Consistent Cash"
Thursday, May 28, 2015 by Samantha

I have been a member of PineCone Research for quite a few years. The surveys are easy and the payments are quick and consistent. The only reason I haven't given them a "5-star" rating is that, over the years, they have changed some things to my displeasure. First, they reduced the amount they pay from $5 a survey to $3 (still not bad compared to other survey sites). Second, they used to automatically credit your PayPal account the next day with that money and now you get points that you redeem on their site for money or other items, taking more time to receive payment. Other than that, I would recommend it to anyone searching to make some money taking surveys.


"A great paying site"
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 by Hans

I joined PineCone Research about 8 months ago. All of the surveys are short and very easy to complete. PineCone pays $3.00 per completed survey, which you can cash out using Paypal. I don't know of any survey site that does this. PineCone also sends out samples to try iif you qualify. The customer service is awesome. This is truly a great site.
