Interesting online surveys that are e-mailed to members, and are on a variety of different topics.

Canadians typically earn $5 CAD per survey, while Britons earn £3 per survey completion.
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!
Pinecone has now decided to award points for surveys. AND worst of all only merchandise instead of cash or even giftcards.
Be careful this used to be the best survey company. I am afraid it is now GONE!!!
Their surveys are short and interesting. Its nice to
actually get paid.
Had a few surveys at first and was getting a little chunk of change, but then out of nowhere the surveys stopped coming. No information on the website - and when I emailed, I was told: " Periodically, we remove names from the database of those we have not heard from on regular basis. We tried to contact you numerous times prior to removal. You have been removed from the panel." - This is simply not true. Not once was I ever contacted about being removed - the surveys simply stopped coming! Beware!!
Have been a member for almost 2 years. Receive 4-8 surveys @$3 level/month. Quality of survey excellent. Payment via paypal is usually within 72 hrs (most cases sooner)! Get 2-4 product evals on a consistent basis also. Very satisfied with panel & their customer service . Karen Scott is the moderator and she is awesome in fixing/helping/resolving any/all issues. Wish, they would send more surveys :) Highly recommended Panel.
It was nice while it lasted. 1 to 2 surveys a month at least, at $3 per survey. The incentive arrived via check in a decent amount of time.
However.... after over a year on the site, I realized a few days ago I haven't received an email to take a survey since last October (almost three months ago). I sent them an email asking what was up and was told that my household was listed for deactivation and that I was no longer a member.
Apparently they do this to most people so they can get new survey takers. So if you finally manage to join which is quite difficult because they don't have openings often, be prepared to lose your spot on the site at some point. Whether it be a few months (I heard from one person who was deactivated for no good reason after 5 months) or whether it be a year or two. It WILL happen.
