not a ton a surveys but great ones that always pay. the surveys aren't that long and is interesting. They also send you products to try! quick payment into paypal.
I was a reasonably new panelist and was being sent a large number of surveys which I duly completed.
From the onset I received luncheon vouchers which I was happy with. I was then told they no longer do these so I set up a paypal account instead.
Over the past two weeks (whilst awaiting over £25 from Pinecone) I have phoned them three times, been promised on numerous occasions that I would receive this payment and that it was being dealt with as a matter of urgency via management and by their accounts section. Nothing has been done and no recent payments have been forthcoming. The last time I phoned I asked to speak to a manager but they did not want to speak with me.
I have been given contradictory information by email - "Yes you can get luncheon vouchers, no you cannot get luncheon vouchers, yes you can get them, no you cannot, etc etc). Their most recent email told me i could get them but it was too late - I had already redeemed the points for a paypal payout.. which has never happened, and I am certain now that they will not pay.
I am so upset with this company and I feel very let down by them AND I feel used. My time and my effort all for nothing. It feels as if I am hitting my head against a rock trying to get them to sort this out. They simply do not care. I am sorry but I really cannot recommend them. Not at all.
I upgraded this to 5 stars from 4.5 stars. Even though you don't get tons of surveys, all of the ones I get I complete and am credited for. I think that makes up for it and they are all $3 for maybe 15 minutes worth of work max.
I am new to Pinecone Research, have only been a member for maybe 1-2 weeks tops. I have cashed out for $6 after taking 2 surveys. The surveys were interesting and relevant to me and really did not take long at all to complete. I think I have been chosen to test a product which is something I would actually use. No problems at all.
Lots of in home tests, typical pay is 3.00 a survey you can get paypal after a check or you can redeem for many many many different items of your choosing! Sometimes you'll get a lot of surveys in a row over the course of a month then nothing for awhile but they have been another one of my all time favorites!
I really like this company. I usually average 1 survey per week but I love that I never disqualify and I like the product testing. The payout of $3 per survey is great.
