I just joined and found the link on the new home page. It's on a bit slower rotation than some of the other ads but I found it :)

I signed up a couple of weeks ago. I got my second check in the mail today. You get paid very quickly. I love this company.

A big thank you everyone for the information about Pinecone Research. I found a banner last night and submitted my information. I received an email today for my first survey. They will be sending a sample to try also. I'm looking forward to a check too!

Honestly, I've been a member only a couple of months and have gotten at least 1 check every week! I'm impressed! :)

This is wonderful...I enrolled on 8/7...received a survey 8/8...check came in the mail today, 8/12...and I just completed another survey today.

It was definitely worth the effort to find the banner...so if you haven't yet, keep looking.

I got my first check within a week of taking the survey.

Only Viewpoint Forum has been as consistent in paying me
for doing surveys and,with that one, you have to accumulate
so many points first to get paid.

Pinecone Research is fantastic!!

Wow Thanks for the tips

I found the banner last night, registered right then, and completed my first survey today. I'm pumped!

getpaidtobeonline.net is where I found the banner. It was for 18-24 year olds but I signed-up anyhow and obviously was accepted. (I'm 36.)

I recently learned about Pinecone and found this forum discussion when doing a search, but still have not found a banner ad anywhere. Any ideas where I can find one at this time?
Thanks!!

After being a member for several months I have been accidentally removed from the system. This also happened to a friend of mine who was only a member for less than a month. I have a strong feeling they prune their database every once in a while to see who notices and not that they been removed. So keep an eye on your account and log in weekly just to be sure you haven't been removed. When I contacted pinecone their excuse was "we discovered a technical glitch on our end that resulted in your membership being discontinued."

I have since signed up again. I didn't think much of this when my friends membership had problems but now that mine has too.. I just wanted to warn others to keep alert. It may be the best paying program out there, but poorly ran.

Letter below:

In investigating your situation, we discovered a technical glitch on our end that resulted in your membership being discontinued. Due to the nature of the glitch, we are unable to restart your existing membership.You have our sincere apology for this most regrettable occurrence. We appreciate the interest you've shown and surveys completed while part of our panel. I do hope you will favorably consider any future market research opportunities should they come your way. Should you happen upon one of the PineCone Research banner ads in the future, please feel free to signup with us again.


After signing up again and contacting the company I got another letter stating how I wasn't accepted back into the panel.

I would of thought because I was accidentally removed that my stats would be reinstated (when I signed up again) like my friends was when they did the same thing to her account. Although she didn't have to resign up because they caught her account in time. Instead they are accepting new members over me who have the same stats. Why? I'm feeling very let down. I had heard nothing but good things about this company but for this to happen to me and another one of my dear friends I'm wondering how many others and if they are pruning or if indeed it was an accident. When they explained it I thought ok, I sign up and am accepted as it was all an accident but I am in serious doubt now as it seems I may never be accepted back. Pretty convenient.

So in closing, keep an eye on your account being deleted by a glitch. Since this has happened before it can happen to you. Please spread word on this warning to others can keep an eye on their accounts too please.

Vonda, I was able to find the banner because I have the UK and USA one.

Hi I also found the banner and signed up after the first survey I never heard anything else from them. I emailed them to find out why others were getting multiple surveys and I was not.

She replied saying that they had suddenly met there quota of people with my demographic. But I was accepted with the same info when I applied. So I looked for the banner again later and never got accepted the first time.

So if you can find it and get surveys congrats! If not your not the only one. I just read the above posting and saw that it didnt just happen to me. Good Luck!
