Pinecone Research remains one of the best paying and most reliable survey companies available on the internet, with a payout of $3 for each 15-20 minute survey. They use to pay $5 per survey, however for new sign-ups they pays $3 per survey, but it's still very worth signing up and being a part of their panel. You get paid for every individual survey so there is no guessing how much each survey is worth. The hardest part is signing up since they are currently NOT accepting new sign-ups via their site (www.pineconeresearch.com), nor are referrals accepted. However, there are PCR sign-up links available on other partner survey sites, you can usually find an active sign-up link by searching for pinecone banner or link in google. It is not a lot of money, but every little bit counts. Combining surveys with other online opportunities all adds up. They are very consistent and they frequently send products to your home that are not yet available to the public to try, and they are very serious about their members respecting the company's privacy. They pay by check or paypal and process your payment very quickly. You can watch the following youtube video about Pinecone.
