    Pinecone is becoming just as bad as MyPoints.

    I got 3 emails from them in the past week and a half about completing a survey. I didn't get to it until today, and as soon as I signed in, I get this response:

    Thank you for your participation but unfortunately your profile doesn't match our requirements for this survey. Please be sure to check your email for your next available opportunity.

    So if they knew I didn't qualify, why the heck send the dang thing to me! (3 times!).

    At least they pay. None of this points for pennies crap -- they pay $3 for each survey completed. And I've never had a survey that I qualified for that was excessively long -- or said it was a 10 minute survey that, once into it, said it was a 20 minute survey and ended up being a 30 minute survey. For pennies.

    I don't qualify for many of their surveys, but I always complete them immediately. Sometimes I get in, other times not. It just sort of means to me that they are not storing all my personal info, which I'm happy for.

    They must be storing info, if they can tell me that judging by my profile I don't qualify. I never answered any questions....just signed in and was DQ'd.

    Yes, they do pay.....if you can't qualify anymore. I barely get one a month now.

    I haven't gotten any in a while. So sad, because Pinecone is one that does pay. I think the first payout I got (over a decade ago?) was actually in cash, mailed to me.

    But I've noticed that either SB or MP uses some of the Pinecone surveys as their own surveys. Often I have logged into a survey and recognized the format. That may be why you are not receiving an additional invitation from Pinecone.

    I've successfully done 14 of their surveys this year on their website, and more of them on SB/MP.

    You can also check the website for available surveys -- but I've never found anything. There is click on their home page menu.

    I checked their website awhile ago. I'll have to check it again. I'm not sure how many I have done this year, but I know it's not 14. I'll be shocked if it's more than 5!

    MyPoints, Swagbucks, Pinecone and E-Rewards all have the same surveys. I'm sure the survey companies send the same surveys out to all kinds of "Rewards" sites.

    Maybe you should contact them and make sure you are still active. I am getting one every other week right now and I am getting a product to test, first one of those in a couple of years.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    I logged in and found out I was deactivated. Going to try to get that fixed. Pinecone used to be a mainstay for me.

    How long has it been since you took a survey?

    Good luck trying to get a hold of them. They're becoming as bad as MP.
