The Pinecone Research application is open again right now! And you may notice the registration process looks a little different.
Pinecone has recently updated the process by asking you a short series of questions up front so that they may direct you to the form that best fits your demographic. This is good news because it means they can categorize the registration applications to process them more efficiently.
Pinecone pays in a timely manner at a rate of $3 per survey via check or Paypal, and they often have product tests that go along with the surveys, so they're definitely one of the best survey companies to get on board with.
PLEASE NOTE: If you've applied to Pinecone recently, do not fill out the application form again. I've been working closely with them, and they let me know that this creates more work for them as they process the applications when they have to weed out multiple registrations.
