Disadvantages: Infrequent Surveys
I was invited to Pinecone research panel by a friend. Pinecone is a rather exclusive survey panel that recruits only every so often, so in order to become a member, you will have to wait for when they recruit and be invited by someone part of the panel.
Once you have joined and filled out the initial profile questions you will be sent surveys when they are available, many of which also includes a product test if you are inclined to help them with it. Surveys are not sent out too frequently. I sometimes get two a week, sometimes none... but on average I get about one every two to three weeks I would say.
Surveys themselves last up to half an hour, with basic questions where you enter details or select boxes. Pictures and sometimes videos will also be shown to you. Answering these surveys are extremely easy and I have had no problems with them so far. If you happen to suspend the survey halfway, if your computer freezes, or if you're unfortunate enough to get a blue screen of death (I get these way too often nowadays), you can always resume the survey where you left off by logging into your account.
Once you have finished the survey, you will be rewarded within a couple of days leading up to a week. Payment comes in the form of Luncheon vouchers (£3) for new users; the reward can be switched to a payment of £3 through paypal, and you can even designate another email address for payment to be sent to!
If you do decide to take part in a product trial that becomes available to you, the reward will be paid after you receive the product, tested it and filled in the follow up survey. Since I joined at the beginning of the year, I have made £60.
I would highly recommend Pinecone to everyone who is interested in completing surveys for rewards. Not only do they pay very generously, but you are also offered to take part in product trials which are far more exciting than normal surveys, plus you can test new products before they hit the shelves! Although surveys aren't very frequent, Pinecone Research Panel is not only fun but extremely rewarding, so what are you waiting for?
