This site is awesome, each survey is only about 5-8 minutes and super easy! However, they only send 1 or 2 surveys each week. I just cashed out and scored $99!

I have only been a member since the beginning of September of this year. I actually only joined because I read one of the posts Collin made around that time. I’ve had a very positive experience so far. I get about 1-2 surveys a week – sometimes 1-2 every few days. I have 3,000 points currently. I wish I could figure out how to cash these outs for PayPal payment and not for items. I need the cash for Holiday shopping :) . I have even received 2 products to test out – one item was food that I loved!

This is an awesome company! Have been doing surveys for them for a few years and nothing but positive things to say. Easy surveys, prompt payment, and occasionally a product to try. Highly recommended!!

I love Pinecone! I do the cash payouts and usually receive my checks within a few days. I’ve been a member for a couple of years – I have no complaints. It’s east money and I sometimes get free products to try!

I’ve been on Pinecone for a while now, and it’s pretty easy to do. They give u a survey about once or twice a week. Each survey pays about $3. Occasionally they’ll send u a product to test. I’ve had a couple sent including drinks and home products not in the market yet. Pretty cool.

Pinecone Research is awesome. I applied several times and finally got accepted last month. I love making money taking surveys and trying out products before they hit the market. I highly recommended them.

I love Pinecone – I do several surveys a week for them. The surveys are short and they pay promptly through Paypal.

I just wanted to thank you. I signed up for Pinecone Research when you posted it and within a few days, I was making money doing surveys. Within 2-3 weeks, I received my first product to try… and yesterday, I just received another product to try.

I am so excited to try these products. I hope the “payouts” are easy like everyone said. I haven’t done that yet. But I wanted to thank you.
