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've been a member of PR for almost 5 years now, and I can say without question that they are the best survey site out there in regards to qualifying, customer service, and prompt payment (rewards & redemptions). Some may argue that PR does not offer a whole lot of surveys compared to most others, but I'd consider the fact that you do not have to worry about wasting time on survey qualifications or system crashes with their site either. It's not a big source of income for sure, but for straight forward requirements and the confidence of earning $3/survey every time, I'll be sure to stick with them as long as they'll let me =)
My main complaint with PineCone is that they don't offer enough surveys for me to take. Even when they do, the time you can take them is very limited. Plus, I am more often than not screened out of a survey and that is annoying. I do suggest this site but do not rely on them too much for rewards.
I haven't heard from these guys in months, so I figured I would cash out the points I had, just in case. I have, however moved 1,000 miles since I signed up for the site. I discovered it is absolutely impossible to change your profile information online, despite it saying in multiple places you can do so. So I contacted customer service...7 times! They never bother to read my e-mails. They just send me some template reply that I can do it online, when my e-mail specifically says I can't do so. After e-mailing them a few times, guess what? They send me an e-mail that they are removing me from the panel....because I am trying to get the measly $12 they owe me. If you are a part of this panel, make sure you get your check before moving anywhere!
i have been with pinecone for a few years. Even though they have made some changes they have been positive. It is a nice little steady income to pay for my online games.
I have always been paid within a week. Every survey they send promising a reward has clearly been checked against my profile and I have never been disqualified from a survey. The only problem is that this year to April 2014 I have not had a single survey.
