Pinecone has always been the best most lucrative and familiar survey site I've ever joined! There is always a guaranteed payout of $3 per survey whether you qualify or not!
A few days ago, got an email to change my password.
But before I did that I tried to log in with the old password
and It says i am that I am locked out. Then I did the email I got to change the password, still locked out.
I gave this 3 1/2 stars this time because I hope they fix it soon. Don't they like me any more? ;)
Very good rewards and no screen outs, I give this to marks. You do have to some free surveys periodically but that's fine as the compensation is good for the paid ones.
Pinecone was good while it lasted. Then I kept receiving emails where they wanted me to install a software to track my spending on Amazon. I opted not to do this, as it seemed invasive and the incentive of 3.00 is not enough to invade my privacy. Soon after that, I stopped receiving surveys. I emailed Karen Scott after a few months to see why and got a message from her that read:
Thank you for your email.
Periodically we have found it necessary to refresh the composition of our research panel in order to stay current with changes in the general population and to provide clients with the broadest possible spectrum of consumer opinions. In doing so, on occasion we have had to discontinue the membership of some of our panelists.
Your household was on the list for deactivation and subsequently removed from the panel.
Although we are unable to reactivate your membership, we appreciate your past participation and interest in the panel.
Thank you again,
Okay, my issue with this is not receiving an email before I emailed them to ask. They don't seem to bother informing you that you are no longer a part of their panel. Karen Scott is a particularly nasty piece of work even though this looks like a nice and polite email. I would post some of the other rude and abrupt emails from her, but I don't want to take up any more of your time.
This is one of the best sites I have ever used for surveys.
One surveys usually = 300 points ( or 3 dollars ) and payout is usually after the survey is finished / received the points.
Surveys are always easy to read and fun to do . Does not take much time . Some survey assignments will send you free test items to review for an additional incentive.
My only con would be that I wished there was more surveys coming in , but I would definitely recommend this site.
