I also love Pinecone! I get a lot of survey's from them and have tested a lot of products for them. I wish more survey companies were like them. I am so tired of those that have you take a long survey to only be put in their "sweepstakes". I wonder if anyone really wins those. I've been with one company that does that for at least 3 years and have never won anything.

Pinecone is great. I complete at least one a month for them like clockwork.

I typically receive a survey about every 3 weeks. I noted, however, the last two were very brief, unpaid surveys. Wonder if this is a trend? The brochure indicates they might send you short unpaid surveys from time to time.

I have completed several surveys and been paid twice. I think I may have completed the short one with no pay a week or so ago, but I completed one over the weekend for pay. Very prompt as many has stated and I must put my vote in for them being the best company around as far as surveys goes. I have stopped with the other companies as I have never won a prize in the three years I have participated. I wish all of you looking for a banner luck, and if I receive anything about referrals I will pass the info on to you all.

I think they have the most interesting surveys, because they tend to be about new products. I've gotten to try a few in-development products at home, and I really enjoy giving my feedback on these. Each survey I've taken has paid $5, but I was pleasantly suprised by how regularly I receive survey invitations and checks.

Marie, when you say they are private, you mean to be careful about talking about specific companies they deal with?

Do the survey's that do not pay most of them are short questions to see what types of products you do use. This helps them match you to the paid survey's.

Wendy they do not invite you, and you cannot sign up via the website. You have to find a banner. That is the only way to join.

Does anyone know where the banner has been seen? I've looked around the web, I have never been able to find it. Any clues?

I think I found out about pinecone through a newsletter I belong to. I guess I lucked out, because I didn't realize how hard it was to become a member.

I have been doing surveys for Pinecone for a few months now. They are great! I don't remember how I signed up.

They are very picky about who they approve. When I found the banner me and 8 friends/family. Out of the 9 of us only 2 of us got accepted. I have no idea what the credentials are!

Each time they put a banner up they are usually looking for a specific demographic. So, if you don't get accepted the first time you try you might the next time you try with a different banner.

I just got another check from Pinecone today. I wish all these get-paid-to programs were as consistent as they are. I would love to do product testing, but, so far, have not been chosen. I wonder if they will ever use Paypal as a means of payment in the future? That way, we could get paid immediately.

I GOT IN TOO!!! Yes the link does work that you posted. I just completed my first survey and they told me that I would be receiving a letter and my compensation within the next couple of days.

Thanks for sharing that link!
