I signed up at the beginning of December and have completed 4 surveys for a total of $12 so far. I love pinecone. I wish I was with them back in the day when they paid $5/survey.

I recently requested to get paid via PayPal for 2008. I set up a new account from my business one. I've been getting the checks ($5) for several years now, but they've been taking longer to arrive. I looked at my 2007 survey payout's, down from 2006 by $50.

The banner AD will be running thru 1/31

Do not click REFRESH. If you pound on the refresh button, the servers start showing you PSAs and other junky banners.

It's been about 2 months and still waiting for a welcome email. I hope it comes soon. I've been checking my spam box diligently as well just in case

The Paypal feature is great b/c I have a Paypal debit card which would come in very handy.

How many of their questionnaires do you have to answer before you get one that pays? I was paid for my first one. After that I have received several that ask for further information. A couple have been somewhat lenghty, but none of them have paid anything.

Well, I am a little disappointed.
I signed up my son originally and he consistently would get surveys, made $5 each week and was sent some really nice products to test.

I decided to sign up for myself now that he is off on his own but the info said the survey pay is only $3 for a survey. I doubt that the time it takes to do the surveys is any less - 30 min to 45 minutes for most.

Jan, in the beginning they send you several questionaires - without pay - that you are asked to complete to see where you fit in so they can keep sending you surveys for payment. A nuisance because they are quite time consuming, however,
if you fit well into their categories and you can set aside 30 minutes a week to get three bucks then it is a good deal for you. Right now I am really not so sure about that because I have a lot going on in my life at the moment.

Overall though - they are the best and fastest paying company out there - so as survey companies go - they rock!

I find I get about 2/3rds of the full surveys that I answer screeners for. Also, I've only received one product to test of about 20 surveys that I have been asked if I would agree to test the product.

I have to say, I can't understand why a company which is trying to sign up people would make it so difficult to do so!

I search for pinecone and got to http://www2.pineconeresearch.com/

However, unlike all other survey companies whose websites I have visited, this one does not have a simple "join" link!

I waded through several pages of FAQ's and finally sent them an e-mail. We'll see if they respond.

Sorry Avery, that's just the way they work. I don't remember the exact phrasing of the FAQ. But, the basic gist is that they'll only accept signups through people who click through one of their banners. I tried just emailing them prior to finding a banner too, and their response was "You can only sign up by clicking through one of our banner ads, no exceptions." So, they'll say the same thing to you.

You're right. That's exactly the e-mail I got. Seems pretty silly to me. To each his own, as they say.

Hi, Linda!

Could you please tell me what exactly you put into Google search to find the banner? Given that other posters have said that it would run through 1/31, I probably won't get anywhere no matter what. However, armed with your clue, I might luck out and be able to latch onto a banner the nexttime they run one...
