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.
Pinecone is still good, because it does pay CASH. It was easier to automatically be sent a check upon completion of a survey, rather than go through the process of cashing out points. However, this is a minor inconvenience.
The first time I tried to get into pinecone I was denied, I waited a few weeks and tried again and got accepted, I've been with them for a while and they always deliver with payment, I used to receive checks, but opted in for their debit card because cashing a check for 3 dollars was just plain annoying, I haven't heard anything about switching over to points like others have mentioned.
Sometimes their household surveys seem annoyingly repetitive and you don't get paid for those but they are usually super short.
I also don't like that they no longer seem to notify me when they are sending me a product shipment, Fed Ex shows up at my house and my family members and I all look at each other with "I didn't order anything?"
Otherwise they're a great reliable survey site. And payment is always lightening fast, which is nice.
