I have only been doing surveys since April and going by what some people have said about the rare opportunities of finding an opportunity to join Pine Cone Research..didn't think I'd find one quick. I got an email from 'UK Survey Panel' with the link today and have signed up straight away. Apparently, they pay £4 per product survey so looking forward to that. I am a member of various survey sites and they do not pay as much as this for one survey.. Is anyone already a member of Pine Cone Research? How has it been? They're one of the best survey sites apparently so let us know how you've been getting on with them. Anyone else stumbled across the link to join lately?

I have been a member of PineCone Research for a few months now. It is pretty good but I prefer another online survey site. I have received an email from PineCone recently, with a non-paid referral link for those interested in joining. It is, however, for US panelists only. That is another reason why I prefer the other site. With that site, I get paid just for answering screening questions and referring new members. If anyone is interested in the PineCone link, send me a message. Thanks!

Gabesmom, Looks like you didn't send me the friend request so I have sent you one. I have just tried the link and unfortunately looks like 'due to an overwhelming response, PineCone have temporarily suspended the recruitment process now' I would suggest signing up to 'UKSurveyPanel.com' as that is how I got the link. I will however forward you the email too as the copied link does seem to take people to the homepage..

I have been a member of Pine Cone for some time now. I get a check almost every single week in the mail. Today I did the second part of a survey that they had sent me on Monday or Tuesday. They said since it was so long they were going to pay me an extra $10. So far, I have only received $3 checks from them. But am really looking forward to earning more from them in the future. Looking back at my logs, it seems I have been receiving checks from them since the end of January. So they do continue sending surveys. I hope you do well with this site, and with all of your survey sites. Good luck to you!

Same here, I've been getting my 3.00 checks for surveys about once a week. I even did one product review, but didn't recieve any extra for it. I guess the product was enough..lol. I like their surveys, and it's nice to get money right away instead of earning points. I finally got notice the other day that I could sign up for payments to paypal. I like that option better!

I have been a memeber for quite sometime now. I truly love the site. I have been sent maybe one or two surveys a month over a course of a few years. Not only have I got paid promptly into my paypal account I have also got to try out some products that haven't hit the shelves yet. They give you the intial incentive, the product to try out and then another follow up incentive. It is a great site just wish I could do more surveys and make more money off of it. Maybe in due time it will happen.

Good to hear. Two surveys a month for £4 each is better than several surveys for a few cents each.. Thanks for your response:)

Looking forward to it, I'd prefer fewer surveys for more money than the several I get for cents or points. £4 is not bad at all for a few minutes work. Thanks for your response:)

I am a member of Pinecone and I love it! They used to pay you with £4 of luncheon vouchers (which I used to sell on Ebay and sometimes got over £4 for them!?!) but now you have the choice to be paid £4 into your PayPal account. You don't get inundated with surveys, but you do get them fairly regular and payment is always prompt. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!

Good that they're now paying via PayPal too! Looking forward to it.

It is quite possible that I am, a while back I signed up for all kinds of survey sites, but a lot of them were more hype than real. Also they always want you to do like a 45 minute survey for $1.00 or even worse an entry in a drawing. I hate that. If they want to compensate me properly for my time I will be happy to do a survey, but I find most survey sites don't pay enough to make worth my time.

I have being with Pinecone for over 1 year, and they are very reliable. I have being paid several times. I don't get enough surveys. I average about one a month. I would really like to get more.

I guess how many you get varies according to your profile and location? Are you a member of any other survey sites?

Compared to most I am new to Pine Cone, took me forever to find a banner. Since I have signed up though I have almost weekly received a survey and they payment from them.

That's great that you have got a survey almost weekly and been paid. Are you using any other survey sites? One other one I would recommend is Lightspeed if you're not a member yet:)

Hi there, I joined pinecone research not that long ago. I've done pretty well out of it so far. They used to pay by luncheon vouchers but now they pay with paypal- brilliant! More money to go towards holiday savings! haha But yes definately the best and quickest earner out of all the survey sites! :0)

Great that they pay via PayPal now. Which other survey sites are you using? My other favourite one is Lightspeed. Join them if you haven't already.
