I've been signed up for a long time now. You don't get offers every day, but it is very worth signing up with. Every survey that you do get is worth 3.00 each. There is no disqualifying or getting kicked out of the survey. Also, there are product testing opportunities. I have tested several different things. Cashing out is easy. There are several different options available.
Maybe it's my demographics but I can't recall a time that I didn't qualify for one of the surveys by Pinecone Research. The rewards are usually about 300 per survey and the are reviewed and posted in just a few days. An email is sent to the panel member alerting that the points are available.
The reward catalogue is pretty large and virtual payments are instant after requesting a withdrawal. I can't say that I get very many survey invitations but I enjoy the ones I complete (especially the surveys about dogs). Overall, it's one of my favorites and I would recommend Pinecone Research.
great company good surveys, happy to see invitations from them a total pleasure.....wish other companies would be this simple.
You get surveys which are product based, interesting actually and the payouts are good.. You do not get many however
Seemed like a good panel at first, but surveys are few and far between. Cannot log into the site to check or claim rewards. Will be dumping this one soon.
