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 doing surveys through a multitude of survey panels for the past 10 years and I must say that Pinecone is by far the worst panel I have been a member of, on so many levels.
The website, interface, poor communication and unresponsive/bad support.
I have filled out all the profilers and initial surveys. After a long wait I finally started receiving survey invitations along with their respective user PIN and passwords. These were not profilers but actual surveys. Not a single time was I paid for any survey I completed on Pinecone, nor do I see any history/logs of completed surveys on the site.
The site is terrible. I feel misled and cheated of my time. Their support is unresistant and does not reply to any e-mails despite several attempts.
I have completed all their surveys and thanked for my time, yet I don't see any of them listed. I was led to believe I would be paid $3 or more per survey.
Never once did I get paid.
I would strongly caution avoiding this survey panel. I wish I could give it more than 1 star, but it is bad on all levels.
Joined this site about 2 months ago, I receive at least one survey per week regularly and each one pays 3 bucks. Only had one so far that I did not qualify for. So far so good, I am happy with them.
does not have a competition. £3 per survey and vast majority of surveys can be completed on mobile devices
I have only been a member with them a couple months but have received several test items and gotten several payments in my paypal account. They don't send surveys too often but the ones I have gotten I always qualify for.
I love Pinecone! The surveys are not too long and the pay is always $3!
For everyone who is complaining about the points system and reward catalog --- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY A PRIZE. YOU CAN STILL REDEEM FOR CASH!
