Pinecone cancelled my account
« on: January 16, 2015, 10:13:22 AM »
I've been a long time user of Pinecone and really liked it.  It was one of my favorites, because every invitation I received, I actually qualified for the survey.  It was refreshing to know that if I went to a survey, I was going to be rewarded for my time.  I didn't get many invitations, maybe 1 or 2 a month, but I liked that they paid out after completing each survey - I didn't have to wait and accumulate an enormous amount before getting paid.  However, this summer I stopped doing surveys and when I started again a few months ago I realized I hadn't gotten anything from Pinecone in awhile.

So I tried to log in and couldn't.  I wrote to customer service and they told me that my account had been removed.  I'm really bummed because I liked them so much, but I guess it was my own fault for not doing every survey they sent me.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I wonder if I can sign up again - I know that the site isn't open to new users very often.

This happened to me as well when I lost internet access for a while.  My account was deleted in 2012, I have never been able to get signed back up with them.  I'd say just kiss them goodbye. Sadly, that panel makes it so hard to get on that if you lose it, it's not even worth the effort to try to get a new account

You may be able to join again at some point in the future.  I recently heard that they were looking for applicants again, and it reminded me that I had not logged in for some time.  However when I checked, my account had been closed as well.

I contacted them, and was told I could reapply in the future, but that was the only way I could become a member again.  Apparently they look for certain demographics throughout the year.  If you hear they are looking, just reapply and see what happens.

I'm kicking myself though.  :(  I was in, and blew it with inactivity!

I wanted to let anyone who is interested know, Pinecone is accepting applications again as of today!  Sadly they don't need my demographic at the moment, but perhaps some of you will make the cut.

I also lost my account with Pinecone Research, but I have no one to blame for that but myself.  I got more wrapped up in other online work and I was ignoring the survey request coming to me.  After awhile when I tried to log in I found I couldn't and it turned out due to my lack of activity I had been deleted from their system.  I guess I could try to sign up again, but I don't know if they would take me back.  They are one of the best survey websites I have found out there though.

I am so sorry for those that have lost their accounts. As for me, I think I cancelled my account not long after I signed up. I didn't see that I could make anything goes with them, since I received no invitation for a long time. I totally forgot about them!

Oh that is sad. I hope my account isnt cancelled. I wasn't paid for my last survey. I need to write to them about this. Pinecone is far and away my favorite survey site and most of sites I belong to I don't even bother with most of them. I find it frustrating that it takes so long to earn rewards on most sites.

I never signed up for account with them because I was not comfortable with how much information they wanted from me. Did you break any of the rules and that led to your membership cancellation? I know they run a pretty strict company.

You're definitely not alone in getting dumped by Pinecone. The company has a history of banning users for no particular reason, although users that don't respond to all surveys or the users that seem to earn "too much" are often common targets for receiving a ban. It's extremely frustrating for users, but, of course, the company gives itself such powers in the Terms of Service that nobody seems to ever read.

I am sorry to hear that they cancelled your account that sounds very annoying. Everytime I get an email from them I always login and do the survey because I need the money anyways since online is my only income.

You must have missed 5 surveys in a row. As far as I know this is basically the only way of getting kicked from their program. I got a warning once when I missed 3, and I haven't missed more than one since. I try to remember to check my email at least every few days, so this chance doesn't pass me by. As stated, they are probably the best survey site out there.
