Best survey site. You get a pre-qualifying questionnaire so when they send the survey you know you will be able to finish it. Also, you won't get a message saying quota filled.
I USED to think this company was on the up & up until a product test for Cottonelle flushable wipes clogged my sewer line. My licensed plumber put on the invoice that these wipes absolutely clogged my line. When I contacted Pinecone to get compensated for my $102 bill, Karen Scott, their customer service agent, sent a short reply saying the matter had been turned over to the department that takes care of those things. Weeks later I contacted her again & again got a short, rude reply & was blown off. Then I suddenly quit getting surveys, I contacted Ms. Scott & she said there were no surveys available in my demographic, 28 yo white male, seriously? A month later I contacted her again, still getting no surveys, & she then informed me I had ben terminated. So, to summarize, Pinecone sends me a product test that HARMED my sewer line, I had to pay out of MY pocket to remedy the situation, Pinecone REFUSED to compensate me, did not contact the product sponsor to have them compensate me, LIED & said they had no surveys in my demographic & then cancelled my account.
Be careful of the products you try because if they cause harm they will not compensate you.
This survey site is one of my favorites. I receive several surveys a week that give me the chance to try products and then report back to the survey, or do lots of interactive grocery surveys with video's or interesting questions that prompt simple honest answers. Never hard to do and never boring. Rewards are quickly posted to my account.
Finally no stories about huge sweepstakes you can win, and all of the prizes you could get when you finally accumulate points. PineCone is a straight forward same amount of points for the earning surveys each time. You know what you are getting and how to get it. They send you surveys and there is no jumping through hoops to see if you qualify only to not get anything if you don't. I have only been with PineCone for a few years and love it. I have earned a few hundred dollars in that time and there was no jumping through hoops to get it either. They have since expanded also and you can now get merchandise instead of just money if you want also. I really do love this one and feel lucky that I was able to get in. They don't just allow everyone to join either. It is a legitimate survey site for gaining knowledge from consumers about products that are out there. You do get non compensated surveys you need to do so that they know what type of paid surveys to send you. The paid for ones get you about $3.00, or rather points now equal to that, for each one you do. Nothing is hidden from you about how this works and you do not have to do it but you only get compensated if you do of course. Well I am happy with this one and thrilled I was able to get in. Definitely the best one I have been involved with.
Am so grateful for being a member - took me a few years to get in, so I was especially pleased to find out how wonderful they are. I make sure that I complete their surveys first when I get them, and anticipate getting the next one. The ability to request payouts in $3 increments is a dream come true. I have been unemployed for a long time and this money is truly beneficial when I can redeem small amounts and leave most of it there for those things like car tag renewals. The surveys are the type I enjoy the most of all of them out there, and then when you are called on for a product test I think it is exciting and fun! Great survey site!!!
