Pinecone Research is a trusted leader in the survey panel industry. They are owned and operated by a market research company known as Nielsen, whose operations are headquartered in New York. Pinecone Research is focused on improving the quality of tomorrow’s products through collecting international research.
Interesting online surveys are e-mailed to members, and are on a variety of different topics. Surveys usually take about 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete. Pinecone may also send its members very short questionnaires that take about 2 – 5 minutes to fill out, and although these questionnaires are not compensated, they are still important in making a difference.

Since I have been with PinecCone, I never one regret or the other. Kudos!!!
Frequent surveys. Prompt payment. Occasional products to test. A fun place. Surveys are not very lengthy. Easy to administer.
good pay per survey worth $3 each time!
could be better if they send more surveys everyday.
why there is not paypal option available? I dont like they mail me cheques >:(
I have been with them for prob 7 years now. They use to pay $5 per survey in a check now they pay $3 in credits then you cash out when you want to sent to your paypal. They also send you products to try i get about 2 surveys a week and 2 products a month.
Ive been with PCR for about a year. Theyre slow on sending out surveys, and ive been trying to get my check from them for the cash out option for over a month. i told them my mail gets stolen not to send me a check, what do they do? send me a check, then once it doesnt show up because of mail theft they return my points and i buy it again telling them it needs to be paypal (after all they send me $3 in paypal, how hard is it to send $21?!?!?!) once again... they mailed it, and i am pretty sure ill never get it. go to i-say.com at least you get better cash for your points, more surveys, an better customer service. Rating would be 0 stars if i wasnt forced to rate.
