    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.

    No reply,

    But I was able access the survey the next day.

    You'll have to email them, the date of birth is a recent thing so it might not be set up in your account.

    I've given up with Pinecone. I appreciated that it was a guaranteed £3 when I got the survey invite, but the website just stopped working for me. I kept getting a "please log in to reset your password" message, which obviously I couldn't do. I emailed them and they said the issue had been sorted but the next time I tried it said the same thing. I've not had an email invite since.

    I has this password loop thing and they told me my account had been closed as I hadn't responded to a survey asking if I still wanted to be a participant - Find this strange as always responded to pinecone as good paying.


    Anyway after discussing with them I had no option but to sign up again as a new user and now get £3 a survey instead of the £4 I was getting

    I just ditched a survey because I am so bored of getting questionnaires for laundry detergent. I must've done half a dozen now and they're always tedious.

    Pinecone has an invitation to join on the free postcode lottery's survey draw today. You will probably have to join, but it's free and I've never had spam, not have I won but plenty of people have.

    Thank you to everyone who contributes to mse.

    It's too get a baseline on your initial thoughts of a brand/item.

    Like if you are asked about a soap powder called "clubbed seals" would you Like or dislike it based on that name.

    Then if picked, you find or that it's actually really great at getting ground in dirt, fat and blood out of clothing in just few hours seep in cold water and you loved that. It turns out dispute the name you love the powder..

    response to the exit questions after testing the product can be compared to your initial thoughts.
