"Great Surveys & Product testing"
June 03, 2015 by Kala from United States

If you are able to catch them when they are openly accepting new people, you should join! I have been a member for about 4 years now, and I constantly get surveys, and from time to time I receive products in the mail to test and report on. They now have a point system, but you can still just request payout via paypal. Each survey is worth $3, or 300 points, depending on what you redeem. The prizes to choose from are great and reasonable as well. Only 1400 points for a free movie ticket. Overall, this is one of the greatest survey sites in my opinion, if you are able to get in.

Love this site. My ONLY con would be that if you miss a couple of surveys for whatever reason they remove you without warning. I have been a member for years and love the $3 incentive/survey.

"easy money"

"Outstanding payment immediately"
May 30, 2015 by E Jean from United States

"Excellent survey site"
May 30, 2015 by Margaret from United States

Pinecone Research my favorite survey site. The surveys they send are to the point, not repetitive and are arranged uniformly. Pinecone is easy to work with and responds to emails quickly. The reward points are credited quickly usually within 1 day and the cash incentive is the best I have encountered, the cash incentive is my favorite and they send your it quickly. Pinecone also offers a lot of product testing, which I enjoy. Pinecone research is a reliable, consistent and fun survey site. I highly recommend them.
