I have been with Pinecone for a lot of years and they have always treated me good. The surveys used to pay five bucks but now only three bucks but most of their surveys are no longer than fifteen minutes so even three dollars is good plus it is sent to my pay pal account the following business. I have seen a few recent posts on here about them switching to just gifts"points' or gift cards but i haven't got anything like that.I just got a confirmation today that sent three bucks to my account so I'm wondering if some of these people don't have Pay Pal so they get points instead? I just wrote two bad reviews on horrible survey sites so it's refreshing to write a good one .One more plus,every time I've had an issue the administrator gets right back to me promptly with concrete answers.
Great experience so far. Expectations are set upfront on each survey and everything goes as promised. The surveys are interesting. I feel my time is valued and my inputs will make a difference.
This is one of the first Survey sites where I didn't feel like I was taking a mountain of surveys just to earn a small amount of cash after months of effort. The surveys are interesting and the payout is pretty quick. The staff is very responsive when I have had questions too. I have in on instance received an item from one of the surveying company participants (it was interesting to try an offering before it was made available to the public). This is the best survey site I have found out of the half dozen I have participated in so far. I highly recommend this Pinecone Research.
$3 surveys, pays on time, what more can you ask for? This is by far the best survey site online. No complaints.
I have been a member for almost 2 years and I always like when I receive an invitation. I usually get invited 2-3 times a week, more often during holiday seasons.
I regularly get products sent to my home to test. They pay a decent reward for surveys that only take 15 to 20 minutes. If you have a problem, which is rare, the support person will email you back the next day with a resolution.
My incentive usually shows up the next day. You can cash out any time you like with a wide range of rewards, including PayPal and they always come quickly.
Sometimes it takes a while to become a member, but if you're honest and attentive in the surveys once you become a member, you can remain a member. Two thumbs up.
