They send me surveys very regularly, some are non-pay and some pay. Never had any issues with Pinecone, best survey outfit I'm working with.
VERY SIMPLY THE BEST OUT THERE TO DEAL WITH. HONESTY, INTEGRITY AND ALWAYS REWARD AS PROMISED.
not a ton a surveys but great ones that always pay. the surveys aren't that long and is interesting. They also send you products to try! quick payment into paypal.
I was a reasonably new panelist and was being sent a large number of surveys which I duly completed.
From the onset I received luncheon vouchers which I was happy with. I was then told they no longer do these so I set up a paypal account instead.
Over the past two weeks (whilst awaiting over £25 from Pinecone) I have phoned them three times, been promised on numerous occasions that I would receive this payment and that it was being dealt with as a matter of urgency via management and by their accounts section. Nothing has been done and no recent payments have been forthcoming. The last time I phoned I asked to speak to a manager but they did not want to speak with me.
I have been given contradictory information by email - "Yes you can get luncheon vouchers, no you cannot get luncheon vouchers, yes you can get them, no you cannot, etc etc). Their most recent email told me i could get them but it was too late - I had already redeemed the points for a paypal payout.. which has never happened, and I am certain now that they will not pay.
I am so upset with this company and I feel very let down by them AND I feel used. My time and my effort all for nothing. It feels as if I am hitting my head against a rock trying to get them to sort this out. They simply do not care. I am sorry but I really cannot recommend them. Not at all.
I upgraded this to 5 stars from 4.5 stars. Even though you don't get tons of surveys, all of the ones I get I complete and am credited for. I think that makes up for it and they are all $3 for maybe 15 minutes worth of work max.
I am new to Pinecone Research, have only been a member for maybe 1-2 weeks tops. I have cashed out for $6 after taking 2 surveys. The surveys were interesting and relevant to me and really did not take long at all to complete. I think I have been chosen to test a product which is something I would actually use. No problems at all.
