I've been with Pinecone for a year this month, and they're the one and only survey site that I trust and bother to deal with. I get a survey about once every two or three weeks along with a check, no hassle involved. I've gotten a total of $100 from them in the time I've been with Pinecone! ($10 of which were for testing a product they sent me.) They're great all year round, but they're doing something even more awesome than usual right now. For taking a household survey (no compensation), members are being entered into a contest for big money!
quote:
PRIZE: $6000 Prize: comprised of three $500 individual awards ten $250 individual awards and twenty $100 individual awards in US dollars. All taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner. No substitution or transfer of prizes permitted.
You can read more about it at http://www2.pineconeresearch.com/Newsletter/sweepstakes_rules.htm. I'm not sure if new members will be involved in this, but since the drawing isn't until "on or about June 29, 2005," I'd say there's a good chance. It's at least worth a shot. If there's ever been a time to find a way into Pinecone, it's now!

Since some of you posted that you just signed up in April, does that mean that it will be 2-3 more months before PineCone puts their banner up again? I'm assuming that you found the banner to sign up because I've done searches and cannot find a direct link to join.

I just signed up with Pinecone this past Friday and was accepted by them yesterday. I found the link by doing a Google search. The link was still active as of yesterday, because I sent it to a friend. Good luck!

I googled and found a banner at about 11pm last night. I was hoping to hear something.

I got up this morning to find welcome message and my first survey waiting for me

I am excited.

Good luck to all

Can anyone who recently found the pinecone link via google, help us out with what the words/phrase used to find this link.

I have tried many times with various wording with no success.

Would love to join. Thank you for your help.

Got signed up for pinecone surveys 5/11 Did a google search (yahoo did NOT work) as suggested by another post. It took a LONG time sorting through many emails but I finally found it in another forum similar to volition. Don't recall what I finally typed in to find it...but dillagence paid off.
Some ideas to try...
"pinecone banner"
"pinecone signup"
"Pinecone Research"
GOOD LUCK!!!

I got my first check in the mail today!!

Talk about fast!!

I just signed up about 5 days ago.

I would say that yes, even if you only take one or two surveys a month it is worth it.

How long from the time that you applied till you got your first survey? I just signed up and was wondering how easy it was for anyone else to qualify

I just made an application to Pinecone which was sent to me and it would not accept my postal code, said it was wrong as was BC for the state.
Does anyone know if Canadians are able to sign up for it.
Are any of you Canadians working for Pinecone Research?

I think they might have a separate division for Canada, that is, certain links only work in the US and certain ones for Canada. I can't remember where I read it, but I'll bet if you did a google search for Pinecone Research and include either the word Canada or Canadians you'll find something. I could be getting confused with another country though.

Melissa,

With Pinecone, it depends what they are looking for right then. They are usually looking for a specific demographic (ie. homeowner, hispanic, pet owner, the persone who does the household grocery shopping, etc.)

If you are in the group that they are looking for, they will get back with you. With me it was only a matter of hours. Other have said it took a lot longer.

Good luck to you!
