"One of my favs."
May 13, 2015 by Rachel from Canada

So far I have been happy with the surveys. Points add up quickly, when you are sent surveys. *This one is a limited one, but they at least tell you that when you sign up - only so many given in a months period*. They seem to have decent redemption options and are reasonable on payout times.

"Also Dropped From Panel"
May 12, 2015 by Steve from United States

I will also echo the recent posts about being dropped from the panel for no apparent reason, or reasons that didn't make sense. After being a panelist for almost 8 years, I recently stopped getting surveys like the others. And also like others it was when I answered one while on vacation. In my case, I didn't get to a few during that time as well, but received several upon my return that were promptly completed.

The first time I inquired I received a generic response about responding to surveys quickly and all appeared to be normal. A few weeks went by with no surveys, so I inquired again.

The second time I was told: "A review of your record shows that you have not been able to complete several product evaluation studies. Periodically, we remove names from the database of those we have not heard from on regular basis. We tried to contact you numerous times prior to removal. You have been removed from the panel."

Here's where they are caught lying. As an IT professional I run my own email server. I have full access to all logs and communication and had created a survey email address just for them. Not a single email was received with their claim of contacting me multiple times.

Their blunt treatment of someone who's done everything asked over the years really speaks to what they think of us. I think 8 years of studies classifies as "hearing from me on a regular basis."

I would beware of them. So many positive reviews here that I would have agreed with before, but along with what others have written here recently, something is going on with them.

"Slow but really worth to be patient"
May 11, 2015 by Leo from United Kingdom

Since June-14 I redeemed twice, a voucher (£10 Love2Shop 1000points 10 days) & Paypal (1200p £12), they've many other rewards.

I don't receive many surveys (hence not the full 5 stars), which is a pity, but it may be either unsuitable profile or because they're ensuring every member receives some surveys...

Anyway surveys are good, not too long, good layout and especially once you start them, it is clear whether you are in or out (no feeling to be thrown out in the middle because quota reached, unlike with many others).

You don't know exactly what points you'll be rewarded, which is not very good, but the surveys that required effort were rewarded 300points, which is very good.
You get a notification when points are placed into your account.

You can tick in your account, personal information, how many surveys per month you would like and it is up to 6 max (UK at least). Never had reason to contact c-s. Slow but really worth to be patient.

"Why can't they all be this simple?"
May 02, 2015 by Ashlaye from United States

The system is so easy to use and every time I'm sent a survey, I've already been pre-qualified. I generally receive an invite to participate every 2 weeks.
The reward system allows you to cash out via Paypal (which processes the next day) or you can save up your points to buy things in their online store (e.g. books, CDs, jewelry, etc.) I always go with the Paypal option. :)

"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.
