    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.

    Another survey arrived mid morning, done immediately and credited two hours later. Well done, Pinecone!

    I've not had any notification to say I'm not on their list anymore or anything like that.

    I know they don't send surveys that often, but it does seem strange that they've not sent anything since last year!

    They are very random - sometimes you dont get many for a long while and then loads arrive. In December I had eight in three days - since then I am lucky to get one or two a month.

    At the start of this year I was getting one survey a week from them, but it has dried up now and I've had none in the last month or so.

    I've only recently discovered they do the points thing now instead of crediting my paypal account. Can I have the points as a paypal payment?


    Sorry - I found it.

    You can get paypal at either 300 points which is 3 or 400 points for 4. Just need to select the 'rewards' section and you can then order the amount of paypal according to the points that you have accumulated.

    My husband likes to pour it into the sink (when it is full!) and then I have to wait ages for it to clear lol.

    Pinecone used to be invite only.

    I love doing their surveys, they're the best paying survey company I've found. I've had about 3 surveys this past week. If you get selected to test the products you get paid a bit more than the 3 I think, though I'm not sure as I've not tested one yet!

    Has Pinecone paused their surveys? The last paid one was the 11th of May. After that I received another quick surveys but this was not meant to be paid. just a screening survey. In my profile I have the "Frequency" set to "No limit" and "No scheduled vacation".
