    Pinecone Research 10th Feb 15 at 6:33 PM
    Not sure if this is the goth forum to drop this in, but I was reading on MSE earlier about the research company Pinecone.

    Anyway, I've just managed to sign up using the link at the following address:

    http://www.surveypolice.com/pinecone-research

    Apparently, their membership is a bit hard to find, and you can't apply directly, and allegedly you get £3 per survey? (I've only just joined, so I don't know how accurate this is). Anyway, I thought I'd post the link up for anyone else that might be interested.

    Yes but you get less invites than other survey firms. So evens out in the end I think.

    I've registered 3 weeks ago, I was accepted a week later, yet no surveys. Is it normal?

    I've been a member with Pinecone for years, and receive £4 a survey.

    However, surveys are few and far between, depending on your demographic.

    Occasionally I receive one survey per month, more than this very rarely.

    Good luck

    Me too.

    I used to get quite a few surveys each month, now can't be bothered to do the odd one for £4 here and there. Used to enjoy getting the LV and treating myself. I think I'll be taken off the books soon, so more space for someone else

    If you have not checked your profile in a long time, best to do so.
    There is now an entery marked 'Frequency:' ... mine showed as one every 2 weeks ... have changed that to no limit.

    You are right! I just checked mine and it to was set to 1 study
    every two weeks. Set it to No Limit. I hope it actually makes a difference

    No idea when that changed.

    Thanks fragmented.

    You can send credits to paypal in multiples of £3 (or £4 depending on account age) ... so you could request 3x£3 and it will send 1x £9

    Ah thanks hon, I've got £3 in my account and another 3 due but I much prefer larger less frquent payouts - I know, I'm weird. I might cash out £15 at a time depending on how long it takes to qualify for 5 surveys.

    Just a random post to say that Pinecone is so pleasantly different from the other companies. I have joined only recently and the surveys are easy and surprisingly interesting - I actually enjoy doing them and always put extra care. They are also exceptionally well paid. Shame they are so rare.

    They will mail you with the surveys as soon as they come available so you don't need to keep checking on the site. As long as you respond within a few hours they are usually still there, and they credit really fast but it can take a few days for the company that the rewards come from to send their part out even if its just paypal credit.
