I had been resisting switching over to the $3 surveys, but I got my 3rd or 4th email with the survey asking me to switch over and this time it said that the slots for the $3 plan are filling up and that it will be the only one soon, so I figured I had no choice and agreed to switch over. I guess it's better than nothing and I have gotten some interesting stuff to try from them.

Since I agreed to switch to $3 over a month ago, I have yet to receive any surveys.

I was wondering about the same thing, Marie. Not even one household survey towards the sweepstakes, either.

I decided to stay with the $5 surveys and luckily I received one just a couple of weeks ago. I guess I will see just how long this lasts.

I have gotten 3 household surveys in the last two weeks. NO paying ones in months. I e-mailed to ask about it and am waiting for a response. I am dissapointed right now how Pinecone has trickled off for me.

I have been with them for a couple of years at the $5 and loved them. I finally said yes to the $3 because I figured that something is better than nothing. I'm tired of getting nothing w/other survey companies - doing 10-15 minutes of surveys and then getting dq'd halfway into the survey. Very frustrating!

At least with *P* I get the guaranteed payment via Paypal everytime I complete a survey, even as upset as I am about having to go down from $5 to a measly $3. At least it's still free money.

Here's my question though - *P* recently sent me a product to try and while I was trying it, I moved from one place to another and just got so busy even after I completed my move w/unpacking and being without internet before & after the move that I didn't get a chance to do the follow-up survey.

Has anyone ever missed a survey before? They have sent me other household surveys and I've since done one other real survey with them. So it doesn't seem like a big deal. But I'm just wondering if they will kick me off or anything for missing it one time.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

I got a $3 one today with a possibility of a product test. Hopefullly I will get it. I'd rather have 2-3 surveys per month at $3 than 1 at $5. Might take more time but they aren't very intensive and it's money I wouldn't have otherwise.

I did a survey for them over the weekend but I don't remember which night. Anyway the $3.00 is always in PayPal withing 24hr so I expected it today & it's not there. That is really unusual.

Gayle, I wanted to reply to your post because I did a survey with them over the weekend and noticed the $3 paypal payment wasn't there on Monday like I expected it to be either! With the $5 payment, it was always there the following business day with no problem. This is really odd.

Received my first household question since switching to $3. At least I know I'm still in their system.

now that i dropped down to $3, I've gotten 2 surveys and both of them didn't pay for a couple of days. I loved that they used to pay within 24 hrs. not that a couple days is bad either, it's better than some that still don't have pay pal and it takes 6-10 weeks to get your check!

Karen,

Maybe you have to change your options to allow pop ups.

After recently downgrading to the $3 per survey, I did my first $3 survey 7 days ago and just received the paypal payment today. I used to get payment for the $5 surveys within one day.

I did two surveys yesterday and got paid today. I also downgraded to the $3 payment. Looks like I'll be doing some product testing too so I'm happy.

I contacted them & got my pmt. & an apology for the delay. Must've been a computer glitch

I just got yet ANOTHER of their endless "household questions" requests. I did it with some hesitation, but I haven't gotten a paid survey in a long while. Maybe I'm a "bad consumer" - hah!
