"Love this survey site"
April 30, 2015 by Ashley from United States

Pinecone never fails me. I get 2-5 surveys a week at $3.00 a piece. The surveys are never longer than 10 minutes and are usually pretty interesting to complete. I've also had a few product tests at home, which is always a bonus.

"Dropped by pinecone"
April 07, 2015 by Rebecca from Canada

I also was recently dropped due to them "refreshing" their panelists. I also recently completed a survey out of country - I was on vacation in Mexico and the surveys stopped immediately after that. I've been a panelist for 10 years. They wouldn't give me a reason beyond refreshing their panelists and that they would be unable to reinstate me. It's too bad, I enjoyed the surveys but I'm pretty disappointed that if it was truly a regular review that brought about my deactivation that they didn't proactively notify me of the change. It's left a bad taste in my mouth.

"The Best"
March 25, 2015 by Roberta from United States

I've been a member of PineCone Research for many years. I joined when they paid $5 a survey. but now its $3, but they send me enough so I'm quite satisfied with what i get. this is the only survey site i can think of that pays you for every survey and extra if they send you a free product to try and review. love it!!

I have been with this site for 3 years and up till now never had any problems. However, recently the survey invites seemed to stop and I found that I could not access my account. When I contacted them they said they had stopped my account because I had answered a survey when out of the country. This was totally wrong, as I have not been out of the country for a year. When I complained they said they would reinstate my account - they did for 1 survey then I found that they had stopped it again. This time they said they were 'refreshing' their membership and I was no longer required. Again I complained saying that I was particularly put out as they do not have the decency to tell you what they are up to, you are left to discover your account has been stopped and I also felt this was linked with my supposed answering of a survey whilst abroad than 'refreshing' their membership. Once again, they reinstated my account for 1 survey then stopped it again. They now will not acknowledge my emails at all. This is a disgusting way to treat a panellist who has always answered their surveys promptly, honestly and strictly adhering to their privacy rules. They expect the highest standards from their panellists but do not treat their panellists with any respect. I do not know what is going on with this company - they were fine until they revamped their site, but I would warn anyone thinking of joining them not to think they are in anyway better than any of the other survey companies - they have proven themselves to be just as bad.

"Best Survey Site"
March 14, 2015 by ashley from United States

I've been a member of Pinecone Research for years and they never fail to keep me coming back. The surveys are always relatively easy for the $3.00 payment they always give. The surveys are also short enough to keep my attention.
