UGH! Maybe the $5 is only for Canadians????
And $3 for americans???? Is that true? Any other pinecone canucks out there? Do they mail you cheques quickly? I wonder how else they differ between US/Canadians?
I am sooooo sorry everyone! I didn't realize it was for Canadians only. I contacted them and it was indeed. I orginally signed up on a referal link from another forum. It was a canuck site so I didn't think. I am so sorry to disappoint everyone. I feel like a shmuck.
I've been with Pinecone since about 2003-2004. At that time, when you signed up the payment was $5 per survey. Now it has been changed to $3 per survey. Those members who signed up before a certain date still get $5 per survey. I think what they did is lowered the amount per survey but upped the number of surveys available. Apparently they have become one of the most recommended survey sites and do have alot of companies who want them to conduct their product surveys. So it all works out in the end money wise. I now get my payment through Paypal so it just bulids up in that account until I want to use it. Nice thing about the direct deposit is they usually pay within 24-48 hours of survey completion. I love Pinecone...they are definitely one of the best survey companies out there!
