Other Market Research Opportunities
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 very happy member for several years. I get on average one survey per week with a payout of $3 each time (through points). Occasionally I'll receive a product as well to test out and receive an additional $3 for that. They have it set up to where you can sign into their rewards website to redeem your points for merchandise or CASH. That's why this is for intelligent people only. Apparently a lot of idiots believe that Pinecone got rid of the cash incentive and are getting their childish revenge by making ridiculous statements such as Pinecone being racists against whites and other embarrassing outbursts. Pinecone emailed their members to alert them to the new changes and to assure them that the cash incentive was still an option with instructions on how to do it that way. Please learn how to read people and stop knocking one of the most legit survey companies in existence.
You can still get your $3 payout with the point system! Honestly, I have been with the panel for many years and I love it! They are great! If you don't believe me that the payout is still available go to the rewards store and look for the things that you can get with 300 points (which is 1 survey) and see that it's still there. It takes a little longer, but you still get it! I think they are awesome!
very pleased with questions and payments reliable and fast Harriet new york
This survey panel has gone down hill in every possible way! The surveys have become a lot longer, the incentives have been cut in half, and and customer service takes twice as long to respond to any issures you may have. This is a shame because Pinecone was once the best survey site of it's kind. However, things have unfortunately, taken a turn for the worse!! -- I DO NOT RECOMMEND PINECONE RESEARCH!! -- DON'T BOTHER WITH IT!
I used to be a big fan of PineCone. Ever since the compensation system changed, I've become frustrated. I log on to my account, but I'm unable to access the site to view/redeem my points. Oh well. I'm hoping there's another company that's hip to the changes at PineCone and how some members are unhappy and decide to come up with a program similar to how PineCone used to be. Can't say that I'd recommend PineCone at present.
