"Still One of the Best"
May 29, 2014 by Bruce from United States

Five or six surveys a month by invitation only. The surveys are very well designed and efficient with little redundancy in the questions. The result is that will find out what they want and need to know in ten minutes while many others would take you fifteen to twenty. Another plus is that if you can't continue the survey (i.e. lose connection) you can pick it up where you left off! You have to really look for the cash payout, but once you find it you have options like getting mailed a check, a debit card or PayPal. They have a lot of to select from their catalog. Many items are cheap brands that are over priced, but there are some good "specials" that you can get. I choose to be sent a check and it arrives within a week!!

"Pinecone is the best"
May 18, 2014 by Iza from United States

They are my favorite. It's a super honest site where you can cash out after just one survey.They even sent me a product to evaluate once, which I loved. I wish I qualified for more surveys! Right now it's about 3-4 a month. I took a half of the star out for canned responses when trying to reach customer service. Other than that, I love them!

"The best!"
May 06, 2014 by Heather from United States

I've qualified for quite a few product tests with this site, they pay fast, every survey is $3 no matter what and you only get surveys you qualify for so your time is not wasted. One of the best survey sites in my opinion.

"Hands Down the best Survey Panel Ive Joined"
April 27, 2014 by Danny from United States

You won't regret joining this one at all. 3 dollars per 15-20 minute survey is the best out there compared to most. and you get paid through paypal once you've accepted a few payments through check, but its a wonderful site and it took me so long to get in, but it was worth it, now they are recruiting more than they used to. So get in while you can.
