The Pinecone Research application is open right now! I know many of you have been asking when they'd be taking applications again, so now is your chance.
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.
