"Can't find any better"

Probably the best site I have dealt with and when you actually do a survey as for as a mailed check, you should recieve it within 4-5 days after completing the survey. I've seen a few negative reviews on here and most of them are they don't receive enough surveys. Hell 99.9% of the time I take a survey with them I don't get knocked off half way into it and I get paid almost immediately. They're probably upset because they don't get 10 surveys a day!!!

Been with Pinecone for over 3 years and after a LOT of hassle and games and lies from other sites, I still can feel good about and proud to be a part of Pinecone. They are VERY professional. Customer service is impeccable compared to just about all other sites. I've wasted so much time and energy with others and have NEVER had a bad experience with Pinecone- ever!

"Fun to do"

My daughter does this site and she enjoys it very much. Can't start them early enough on doing surveys.

"Honest "

I have been very pleased with this company. You get $3 for every survey via paypal the very next day or Monday if it is Friday or the weekend. You can also get a check sent.
I get lots of products to test!

"Great, until it's time to get paid"
Tuesday, August 14, 2012 by Toni

Pinecone research, at first, seemed to be doing everything right. That is, until it was time to get paid. I have taken 6 surveys to date, and have only been paid for 3. They promise to "re-issue" my checks, but of course I do wonder why they weren't issued in the first place! I requested PayPal payments, which I actually received one of. When I questioned them about the other two, I was told that I would have to take up that with PayPal, (who I have NEVER had a problem with). Of course, the process of tracking a "lost" payment on PayPal is so time consuming that it is hardly worth the $3.00. I find myself ignoring their survey invites now, as I can better use the time to take surveys with those sites that do pay honestly & promptly.
