its a very good site. each survey is 300 points - 3 dollars.
I cashed out on 11/1/15 to receive a check by mail for $120.00 that I was going to use for Black Friday. When I cashed out, it told me I should have my check in 10 business days. When I didn't get it, I contacted them via email (no phone number), and they responded via email stating 15 business days. When I contacted them again after 15 business days, they stated that they needed to look into it. After a few days of not hearing anything, I sent another email and I finally got a response that stated that the check came back to them. They asked me to verify my mailing address so that they can re-send the check. I responded immediately which was 2 days ago. Today, I received another email stating that since the check did not get delivered, they would be temporary suspending my account until I get my address resolved!
This experience is now a month old, and they still have not delivered what is rightfully mine! I have mentioned to them over and over to place the points back into my account, and those comments have been ignored. Instead of helping me, they're not suspending my account and won't mention about my reward. I sure could have used that money to buy presents for my kids! Thank you for screwing that up for me!
Pinecone Research Company is one of the best survey sites I have encountered. The surveys are extremely interesting to take, enjoyable and guaranteed. Plus, you have an opportunity to test products. I do enjoy giving my opinion on possible future products. I am thankful for PineCone Research and the many opportunities they have provided me in recent years. It is truly a classy organization that values my opinion.
By FAR, the best survey site out there. If Global Test Market didn't have those "activities.mysurvey.com" errors that happen often, then I would consider them as the best survey site, but they do have errors.
Pinecone is a fantastic site, I am constantly getting things in the mail to try out, from body wash, to soft drinks and granola protein pops. They pay quick and are absolutely fantastic. This is exactly how survey sites should run and other sites should take notes from how they do things.
