My Donation Method

DISCLAIMER: Borderline advertising here, I hope it's ok, and it's for the good of the site...


I am a member of a survey site called pineconeresearch.com which pays $5 US for every survey I take. They typically send about one survey every month, and they take 10 minutes or so to finish.

Now I saw this as a perfect opportunity to donate with out hurting my already meager college-student funds. So for every $5 check I get, I paypal $5. Easy.

I'm sure there are many similar sites out there like this, and minimal effort of signing up and taking a few surveys could lead to increases in donations without financial burden on the student/unemployed/stingy forum members. Of course this doesn't much help those who can't use paypal, but I think it is a great option for those who can.

Sorry if I crossed the advertising line, I'm just trying to help.

EDIT: I've just been informed that pinecone does not appear to be accepting new members, but there must be bunches of similar sites out there...

Nah, I don't see that as advertising (though I obviously don't speak for the admins), but my suspicion is that you're just fine.

I think it's a great idea and to be honest, we can use all of the suggestions that we can. The more, the merrier.

But does that site take your information and sell it to junkmail factories and telemarketing armies?

No. It will be kept completely confidential and will never be sold to any third party. Your personal data is used only for the purpose of our research studies.
I have never recieved a spam email or unsolicited phone call from them or even on the email/phone number I signed up with. (Actually I don't even remember if phone number was asked at sign up.)

This seems liek a very good idea. I'm about to sign up for the site: http://gozingsurveys.com/survey_site/index.asp but having never used PayPal, I would like to know a few things...

First of all, does this site put the money into a PayPal account that I have to make? If so, to make a PayPal account, do I need to input my bank account/credit card number?

And then once it puts the money in the account, can I just "Transfer" it over to the Dii.net account? Thanks in advance.
