For the past 7 0r 8 years (maybe longer) I have been taking surveys for a company called Pinecone Research. At the time I signed up, I had also signed up with a few other companies but have since stopped. The difference between Pinecone Research and the other survey companies is like night and day! Pinecone Research sends just a few surveys a month. They also send occasional questionnaires. All of the Pinecone Research surveys pay a flat compensation of $3. Although the questionnaires do not give any form of compensation, they are less than 5 minutes and also enter you into a monthly drawing for $500. Occasionally I am also sent products to try and review, which my family and I enjoy!
The money is paid VERY quickly. Within a day or two it is directly deposited to my paypal account. There is also an option to redeem for other merchandise. I use my payments from Pinecone Research to put towards the amazing deals online! It isn't a lot at once but it does add up throughout the year. If you would like to join Pinecone Research then you can apply here. There is a limit of one member per household. Multiple registrations will void membership. Hurry because this doesn't usually stay open long!
