Fwd: Fw: PineCone Research is Growing

Hey, Y'all!

I think I may have told you about this research company several months ago.  I have participated for about 18 months.  I complete online surveys when they are submitted to me about 2-3 times a month.  The frequency depends on the product and demographic for that product and whether or not you match the targeted demographic for it.  Anyway, there have been times when I got no surveys for a month and others when they came so quickly it seemed like I was completing them everyday or so. 

Anyway, you get 300 pts or $3 per completed survey.  I have gotten about $150 over the last 18 months.  I surely don't do it because of the pay and benefits.  However, it is just enough to pay for my newspaper subscription for the four papers I get every week.  It takes 5 to 10 minutes per survey.  Some are fun while others put me to sleep.  I have receive samples of new products before they go on the market.  I just completed a 3 week in home test on an automatic dishwasher detergent.  I have tested new foods, face creams, toilet paper (that was fun!), and a few other products I cannot remember.

Anyway, here's the survey invitation below.  They do not accept everyone who applies.  The month I applied, I guess they needed little old black women.  This month they are looking for Hispanic households and/or 18 to 24 year olds.  So, if you are Hispanic (I have a few Hispanic Coupon Buddies on my email list) or 18 to 24 years old (have a few cousins on my coupon list who are in this age range) ...or know someone who is... this survey might be your in road to great riches...just kidding.  But it will pay for your newspapers!

Take care, ShaRon
