"Great Survey Site"
Thursday, June 28, 2012 by vincent

Payment is fast and hassle free. I was getting checks that would show up the week following a finished survey,now getting pay-pal payment within 2 days and sometimes 2 hours. No requesting to be paid it's just done.
$3 per survey a good incentive these days and if there is a product test involved you get another $3 after completing the test and follow up survey.
Surveys generally are not long and very easy to complete.
What I find real interesting is when another survey site offers a survey paying .50 - $1 and connects me to a survey I just got paid $3 for doing at PineCone right down to the same URL.
Shows what a rip off some other sites are!!

My only complaint would be not enough surveys - some weeks 1-2 and other weeks none at all.

Over all I'd say one of the best sites out there.

"Love Pinecone"

I've never had any trouble with Pinecone research. Surveys are frequent enough that you don't forget about Pinecone but not so often that you regret signing up. Every survey you participate in pays you $3 for your time except the ones ending in 3001 which are just qualifying surveys to see if you'd fit a certain survey. All of the surveys are straight to the point and easy. None of them take very long. One of the best survey companies out there!

"The best survey panel I have used!"
Tuesday, June 12, 2012 by Me

I really look forward to getting their surveys, because I know that when I do get them, and do them, I am assured $3 per survey. I dont have to worry about being disqualified in the middle or end of the survey. I only wish that I could get more surveys. But even so, the few I do get to do, are a for sure $3. And they pay next day straight into paypal.
Keep in mind that there are questionnaires that you may get from them to do that are NOT $3. I get those very little but at least I know that it is a questionnaire before I start it. And they are usually only less than 5 min. This I think is to match u with future surveys pertinent to you.
I recommend this survey panel highly. I used to also like Opinion Outpost until they changed it all.
