My Review of Pinecone Research

Pinecone Research is one of the best market research paid survey companies out there. They have a great reputation of being a reliable paying paid survey company, and have consistent survey opportunities for panel members. Most members including me usually receive 2-3 surveys from Pinecone every month, Pinecone used to pays $3 for each survey. Pinecone Research surveys usually are easy and short (most surveys took me 5 – 10 minutes to finish). I also have done quite some product testings for them.

Right now Pinecone Research are paying panel members $3 (300 points) for each paying survey and a sweepstakes entry for each “household” survey (household surveys are “screener” surveys used by Pinecone Research to determine potential paying surveys for panel members.) Pinecone Research ofter members two options to accept the payment – check or Paypal. I choose Paypal and usually receive Paypal payment the next business day (before Pinecone offers Paypal they even sent me check payment BEFORE I took a survey once!).

Following are screen shots of the Paypal/check payments I received from Pinecone Research:

How to Join/Sign up with Pinecone Research?

Pinecone Research doesn’t accept members at their website, instead they recruit new members through advertising or member referrals. You need to find a Pinecone sign up banner or sign up link in order to join Pinecone Research Survey Panel.

Usually you can find sign up links or banners right here at this page.

To join Pinecone Research, just click following sign up links which take you to the sign up form. Fill out the form and submit.

Pinecone Research – USA  Sign Up Link

Pinecone Research – UK  Sign Up Link

Pinecone Research – Canada  Sign Up Link

After you submit the sign up form, you should receive an email from Pinecone Research. The Email contains a link to your “profile survey”.

Important – You must complete the profile survey in order to be accepted into the panel. You will receive a “Welcome” email shortly after (usually one day later) you fill out the “profile” survey.

The “Welcome” email confirms that you are accepted into Pinecone Research panel.

Please Note: If Pinecone Research Banner or sign up link is not available, please subscribe my Newsletter and I will send out email alert to my Newsletter subscribers when Pinecone registration is open again.

Pinecone Research just launched a new US sign up form that looks like this:

Pinecone_Research_Sign_Up

Pinecone Research USA – Sign Up Form

PineCone Research New UK Sign Up form/screen looks like this:

Pinecone_Research_SignUp_UK

Pinecone Research UK – Sign Up Form

PineCone Research Canada Sign Up form/screen looks like this:

Pinecone_Research_Signup_Canada

Pinecone Research Canada – Sign Up Form

Please note again:): sometimes you will see a Pinecone Sign Up Banner states they are looking for a specific kind/group of people, (such as certain age or ethnic group), you don’t have to worry about that, since they might just accept you as a panel member even if you are not their originally “targeted” members. :)

I have noticed that some website are giving so called “tricks” or “tips” on Pinecone. I just want to point out I would NOT recommend anyone to listen to those “tricks”. For example, when you see the sign up banner says they are looking for 18 – 24 year old or Hispanics, don’t say you are Hispanic or you are 19 when you are not. It is not right to lie to get into the Pinecone panel (or any other market research survey panels), and you might get caught later on and get kicked out. If your demographic fits what Pinecone is looking for very likely you will be accepted and given survey opportunities.  If for some reason you have trouble get accepted by Pinecone, pleae don’t get discouraged, it’s really not a big deal – because there are so many other good or even better survey sites you can join!

Other Notes & Tips

#1: First, I want to remind everyone is it is AGAINST Pinecone’s policy/Term of use to talk about your survey and product testing experience with Pinecone publicly. When you sign up with Pinecone, you agree to keep everything confidential. And this is actually what you should do for ALL paid survey/market research companies.

#2: I have read somewhere on the net (couldn’t remember where it was lol) that somebody saying you have to use IE brower to take Pinecone Research surveys – this is simply not true. I have been taking Pinecone surveys with Firefox for a long time and never had a problem.

#3: A while ago Pinecone Research asked members to download a program/plug-in, again some website are warning everybody saying there are possible Trojan in the plug-in. Again it’s another false alarm, lol.  I don’t want to get into the detail, since it really doesn’t matter – because I have never downloaded the plugin, but I continue to receive surveys from Pinecone Research.

#4: Sometime at end of a survey, Pinecone might ask you if you are interested in testing a certain product for a manufacture, if you answer yes, it doesn’t mean you will receive the product to test. I have been asked numerous times of the same question, but I have only got a few chances to test products for Pinecone Research.

Pinecone Research Scam Warning Notice

Pinecone Research publishes a “Important Security Notice:” on their website warning the public about scammers using Pinecone’s name scam people. Here is the part of the notice:

We have been made aware that third parties may be attempting to use the names and logos of Pinecone Research for different “scams.” One example of such a scam is a “mystery shopping” assignment. Essentially, the victim is provided a fake check and advised to cash it, and then use some of the proceeds to test a service (for example, testing a Western Union wire transfer). The victim is advised that he or she may retain the balance from the cashed check as payment, however, the check later bounces. Other examples include recruiting for “business evaluation surveys” or “hiring” employees.Please be aware that Pinecone Research has no involvement in these fraudulent transactions. Participating in our surveys is always free of charge, and we never ask our panelists to cash a check for a large amount and then use the proceeds to “test” a service. Furthermore, all communications with us will always be with the email address “scott@pineconeresearch.com” — be wary of any email that asks you to respond to a different address, or asks you to respond by clicking on a link within the email. (Please be aware that email sending addresses can be faked, and so it’s possible for a fake email to appear to have come from this address.)If you are targeted by any of these scams, please report any information regarding these activities to local law enforcement agencies, as well as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) “econsumer.gov” reporting system (https://econsumer.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/) in the United States or the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre (http://www.phonebusters.com/) in Canada.

Do you Recommend Pinecone Research?

Yes. I really think anyone who are interested in online surveys and product testing should join Pinecone Research. Yes I make more money with a number of other paid survey sites, but Pinecone is still my favorite. They have interesting surveys and product testing opportunities, surveys generally are easy and short.  Pinecone Research is fair and very reliable, and they are the fastest paying survey company . I highly recommend Pinecone Research!

Pinecone Research FAQs

In this last section, I will try my best to answer your most common questions about Pinecone Research. Some of them are asked in the comment section, and some are from emails I received from my readers. Feel free to let me know if you have questions that are unanswered!

How Do I Request Cash Payment?

Many of you know Pinecone switched to a point reward system a while ago, and some members are having trouble finding the cash payment option. To request cash reward, either by check or Paypal, do the following:

Step one: Login into your Pinecone Research account;

Step two: In your account page, at the bottom, click the “Redeem My Points” button link, which takes you to reward catalog site/page.

Step three: at the reward catalog page, as shown below, click “Featured Award” link on the left, there you can see the “Cash Option” at the bottom. From there you reach the $3 (300 points) cash reward page.

Pinecone_Research_Cash_Payment

Enter the Quantity based on your point balance. For example, if you have 900 points, you should enter “3” in the “Quantity” field. Then click “Add to Cart” button.

Can you take Pinecone surveys on mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets?

So far it looks the anwer is NO – you can only take their surveys on desktop or laptop computers. Every survey invite email I received from Pinecone Research states following:

“We use every technology available to create interesting and engaging surveys for our panelists. This survey uses technology that may not be compatible with some smartphones and tablets. If you use these devices to complete your Pinecone surveys and experience any difficulty, please log in using a desktop or laptop.”

Are you a member of Pinecone Research Panel? Or do you have any questions about them? Feel free to share your experience and ask if you have any questions!

  1. Is anyone able to refer me into pinecone research Canada? I just found out about pinecone however they do not seem to be accepting members at the moment, and the link above doesn’t work for me, I live in Canada.

    • HI Yu Min Cheng,
      Thank you for letting me know about the outdated link! I have just updated the link and it should be working (I tested myself). Please try again (you might need to clear broswer cache/cookies, or just use a different browser.) Good luck!

  2. Be Aware of FAKE Pinecone Surveys!

    While was checking my junk folder yesterday, I found a survey from Pinecone. At first I almost thought my email host made a mistake, since the email subject looks like from Pinecone, but until I opened the email and checked the sender details (the emails is sent from France) I realized that it IS a junk mail. Also if you compare the real Pinecone survey invite email with one, you will see this one is fake.

    Here is the email details:

    Subject: Project #87026 – New study‏
    Dear PineCone panelist,

    A new product concept study is ready for your participation! Project #87026 is currently available and you can follow the link below to go directly to the survey.

    This survey has a slightly different format. You will not need to log in with your ID and password as the link will automatically direct you to the study.

    [Link Removed]

    The deadline to complete this project is Saturday, November 22.

    If this link does not work, please copy and paste it in to the address line of your browser window. If you experience problems accessing a survey, the best time to complete is between 8am and 4pm EST.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks again,

    Karen Scott

    • I hope Mary didn’t cash the check. I got mine today too but once I did the research, I found out on Pinecone’s website that it’s a scam. I used to be a member & knew that Pinecone is located in Ohio. The check came with a Texas return address & post marked in Louisville KY. I knew something was wrong. That’s when I went to Pinecone’s site & found their notice about the scams.

      Mary, DON’T cash the check… it will bounce & be taken out of your personal money.

  9. I just received an e-mail from you about being a mystery shopper. Is this right. If so I except. Sincerely, Joyce Benjamin Phone number has changed. It is 570-462=2564.

  10. I notice the state of Hawaii is not on the pulldown list when I tried to sign up for membership. You know that the state of Hawaii is part of the United States, right? You do know that?

  11. My name is RoseMarie and I would like to join your panel after being reffered by my friend Nicole Elliott. I would apprecite you sending me the link to join.

    • Hi RoseMarie – just click the pinecone sign up link which takes you to the registration form, fill out the form and make sure answer the following up profile survey, and you should be able to join. good luck!

  12. No longer giving out checks!!! Now you are given 300 points per survey, and it takes tens of thousands of points to get any items from the store. Not worth the time!!!

    • Hi Lindsay, they still have the Cash Option. Just click the “Featured Awards” link on the left side of the Category page, then you will see the “Cash Option” at the bottom under the “Featured Awards”. After you click that you will see the “$3 Cash Option” page and it says:

      300 Reward Points

      Free Standard Shipping

      Turn your points into cash with this reward option! Upon receipt of your order a payment will be issued for the value of your order. Please note that if you request multiple cash payments it will be combined and issued as one payment for your convenience (i.e. 3 x payment will be one payment of $9). Your payment will be sent to you via your previous preferred payment method (check, Everywhere Reward Debit MasterCard, or PayPal). If your previous payments were loaded to your Debit MasterCard, you can expect the funds to be loaded onto your card. If your previous payments went to PayPal, this will be sent to your PayPal account. If you wish to set up PayPal payments, please email scott@pineconeresearch.com to do so before redeeming. For further information please contact the rewards team who will be happy to assist you.

      I just re-joined Pinecone (used the sign up link on this page) recently after they dumped me a couple of years ago. I just received and completed a survey today. Points have not been credit yet but once it does I will cash out and update on the payment.

      Hope it helps!

  13. Hi I am from India does the site pinecone accepts the sign up request from other countries.

    • Vamsee, unfortunately I don’t think they accept anyone from India. Check out the Asia=Pacific Survey list, there are a few good survey panels open to India.

  14. This was an excellent read; I’m stunned! Not by you obviously, just that it took me 25 minutes to uncover your site in the big g. That is way too long for a high-quality site like this

  15. :roll:

  29. Hello,
    I want to Sign up for Pine Cone Reserch UK but i dont know its not working or what can u please guide me with it thank u.

  30. Update – I receive and qualify for 2 surveys a month and sometimes I get product tests. I haven’t had any problems with them. They are in my personal top 12 best survey companies!

  31. :sigh:
    hi,
    i was wondering if you guys would consider filipinos, because there’s no link for philippines i really wanna join.thanks

  32. For me, after registering it said that nothing was available in my area for the information I submitted. Has any of you tried out Cashle/Points2shop yet? Just curious. Not spamming at all. I did not see it on the list on this site. Here you go:

    http://www.points2shop.com/us/1566/Battlefield-3?ref=bottomofthemap

    At least if you’re like me and can’t get into Pine Cone right now, you can make a few easy bucks with them too. There’s only $1 minimum needed to pay out, and I have been with them for years.

    Anyway, If anybody else knows another REAL site that actually pays, let me know. Thanks. I need the extra cash.

    All of those other sites (that I find) want you to build up money for 10 years b4 they pay…lol Not happening.

  51. I’ve been with this company for a couple of years now and I’ve never had to worry about getting paid. I know I get $3 everytime I complete a survey.

    I’m surprised that they’re not accepting males between 25-35 because I was always told by survey experts that males are much harder to get.

  59. Hi everybody! – I just received an email from Pinecone saying "Pinecone Research is Growing" and asking me to refer friends and families to join Pinecone USA and the email contains the new Pinecone sign up link!! Use the link in the post to sign up right now!

    Following is the email:
    ==================================
    Dear MEI:

    PineCone Research is growing and we invite you to help! We are offering select members the opportunity to recommend membership to a friend or relative who is NOT a member of their household.

    Do you know of households that would like to join the PineCone Research Panel? If so, please FORWARD A COPY of this email to each household you would like to refer so that they may click on the registration link shown below. That household should complete the registration form themselves and submit it. REMEMBER THAT ONLY ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD MAY REGISTER. Multiple registrations of the same Household will void all registrations.

    Here is the link to the registration:

    [link removed – please use the protected link in my post above to sign up]

    As a member in good standing, you’ve already seen the benefits of being part of PineCone Research. So please, share the benefits of membership with a friend. Don’t forget, please don’t tell them about any of the products that you have seen in our questionnaires or tried in your home. Remember, it’s important that your PineCone Research survey and product testing experiences remain confidential.

    If your referral has any questions, they can email us at scott@pineconeresearch.com or click on the attached links to learn more about PineCone Research.

  60. Im from Greece can i participate in participineconeresearch.com? And if i can where can i find a registration link?

  61. When will a new registration be available to sign up for Pinecone Research. Can you notify me when this happens.

  62. Yes Stacey, looks like the link JUST expired. Don’t worry – come back in a few days I am sure Pinecone will make another sign up link available. Thanks for the heads up.

  63. Hi Jo, the US Pinecone sign up link has been updated, it is working now, please try again. Thanks for the heads up. :-)

  64. Hi Jade, yes that old link just expired. I just updated it with a new working link. Please try again and let me know if you encounter any problems. Thanks for the heads up! :-)

  65. I try to sing in to Pine Cone but the link is not working or expired
    So let me know when the link is work cuz some friend are registered in Pine Cone and tell me this website and research is good I’m very interesting in register
    Thanks

  66. Uk link just takes me to ‘HTTP 500 Internal Server Error’ page- is it broken?

    If possible, could anyone refer me if there is a chance?

  67. Hi Lauren – the pinecone US sign up link works now..good luck.
    Natalie – unfortunately I don’t Pinecone open to Bahamas :sad:

  68. I live in the Bahamas and there’s no link for us over here :sad: I hoped I could have joined but I cant….

  69. I tried the signup link here awhile ago (week or two?)but never got confirmation.
    So I went to email them and my email can’t be found :sad:
    I used to be a member years ago- by far my fave survey company. I got to test really nifty things.

    I just hope the link works again soon.

  70. Hi Tyler, I think it’s a technical problem at Pinecone’s end..maybe come back later (in a couple of days) and try again.

  71. Hi, I’m afraid there’s a problem with the USA link. Every time I complete the form it takes me to a page that says the page cannot be found. Can this be fixed or does it mean that they closed?
    Thanks

  72. I’ve been a member of Pinecone’s for at least a few years. If you speed through their surveys or open duplicate accounts, they WILL dump you. I actually like that about the site. It’s good to have standards :-)

  73. Hi Robin, sorry that link has expired. I just uploaded the new working Pinecone sign up link. Thanks for the heads up!

  74. I have been with Pinecone since Feb. 2009. I receive 2 surveys a month and I qualify for both of them. I havent done any product tests. They pay within a few business days. I havent had any problems with them or receiving payments.

  75. YAY!! Thanks so much for posting this info on Pinecone! The link is OPEN, so I just signed up!! I really hope I qualify!! WOOT WOOT! I’M READY TO MAKE SOME MOOLAH!!

  76. Hey guys,

    I have been a member since 2005 and would highly recommend joining. Get paid within days of completing surveys via paypal, without fault – excludes household questions.

    Get the odd product to try too :-) Frequency of survey depends on your stats but you should average about one a month.

    Hope this helps ;-)

  77. Hi Mara,
    I just fixed the link, try it again! Thanks for letting me know!
    [quote name=Mara]The German Link doesn’t work :unsure: But nevertheless thanks for posting it.[/quote]

  78. I see posts saying that the UK link was up, then down, etc. Can the US link be put up? I get a page not available screen. Thanks!

  79. [quote name=Cheryl]I am so anxious to get signed up for this survey site that I keep thinking that something went wrong because I haven’t heard from someone. Then I sign up again and remember…oh yeah they said I wouldn’t know for a few days…I CAN’T WAIT!!! LOL :D[/quote]
    I did the same thing (doh). I’m a bit TOO focused on tying up loose ends that I REsigned up today BEFORE reviewing that it could take up to 10 business days to hear back from PineCone about acceptance. sigh… Sorry PineCone. Now that I have read that bit, I’ll wait patiently.

  80. Hi, thanks for the heads up and bookmarking this page. I will put up the Pinecone UK link as soon as it is available

  81. I’m afraid the UK link is not working – it comes up with “The page cannot be found” :confused:
    I’ll check back soon though, thank you for posting these links.

  82. Hi Sharon, has either you or your husband been accepted by Pinecone? If not, I think you can give it try sign up again.

  83. hi there i signrd up to pinecone then i signed up my husband so that means that voids all resigtrations what should i do now please help

  84. Well that is good to hear. My question is, how long should I wait before trying again? Did the trouble they were having with their server reset things I wonder or maybe that has nothing to do with it. I also don’t get how you can tell which is a referral link and which is an advertisement banner.

  85. Hi Megan, sorry to hear the trouble.

    The working sign up link here is actually a member referral link, not a "banner" link. Pinecone periodically sends existing members referral links to recruit new members. If you want to I would think it doesn’t hurt to wait a little while to sign up again.

    By no means don’t get discouraged about it Megan… Pinecone is a good survey site, but I (and most members I believe) only get about 1-2 survey(s) a month. I actually didn’t get any survey last month…

  86. Sooooo I was an idiot and signed up both myself and my husband for Pinecone Research, even though it says CLEARLY there that multiple registrations void all registrations. (Guess I shouldn’t have done it late at night, huh…). I wrote Karen Scott and she said: Megan,

    Unfortunately, I am unable to override the automatic processing program
    used to screen out multiple registrations. If you should come across
    one of our banner ads again in the future, please feel free to try
    again.

    I appreciate your interest in PineCone Research.

    Thanks

    Karen Scott

    Do you think she meant to find another banner or to wait until this current banner goes away and wait for the next time it comes?

  87. Hi Lisa, go to home page of mysurvey123.com, on the left, under the “Main Menu”, you can see “Newsletter”. :-)

  88. i really want to get in to the pincone research panel and i do want to get in this panel and i have joined 2 others but i really want to get into pincone cause of wat everyone says about it umm is this all i need to do :s :silly: :huh: oh yay umm usa panel

  89. Hi Chan, thank you for trying to help, appreciate it – but I don’t think Pinecone will like their direct sign up link being posted on the Internet. ;-) Just you know the sign up links I posted are still working (they are NOT affiliate links).

  90. For anyone who is interested, here is the latest sign-up link for PineCone. I remember how hard I searched for one before I signed up, so I’m paying it forward :-)

    Enjoy!

  91. I was a member of Pinecone and at first it was great. But then they started giving surveys that seemed like they were paid but at the end it said I got nothing! These kept coming until I said screw it and only looked for the real paid ones. I’m still waiting on some checks from them I never expect to get. Overall F.

  92. Hello liam, I am sorry to hear about your accident and your son.. I just want to let you know that I am not sure if you can make enough doing paid surveys to pay for the treatment/medicines, but it sure will help a little.

    To get started, please read my article of Paid Survey Guide For Beginners (http://mysurvey123.com/index.php/Paid-Surveys-Advice-Tips/Paid-Survey-Guide-for-Beginners.html), then sign up with all the legitimate paid survey sites listed on the US Paid Survey List (http://mysurvey123.com/index.php/Free-Paid-Surveys-List/United-States-Free-Paid-Surveys-List.html) (I assume you live in US?).

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions, and good luck!

  93. Hi i am a desperate mom who is now disabled from a terrible accident and then my three year old son was just recently diagnosed on the autistic spectrum. Does anyone know about forums or regular surveys (Liam will need more than six dollars a month for his medicines) which say they pay more? Everyone’s telling me this is all just a scam but I have to find a way to pay for my son’s treatments. Just needing some hope

  94. Hi Ram, probably there is technical problem at the moment (Pinecone had some tech problems a few days ago) I would suggest you to try it again later.

  95. Hi Adrienne – thanks for sharing your experience. :cheer:
    S. Mathias – Pinecone website is down at this moment, please come back and try signing up later.

  96. Pinecone Research was one of the first survey sites I signed up with, probably around 2000. I have enjoyed doing about two surveys a month for them for years, despite the fact that I am now in the “65+” age group–not a popular target. javascript:JOSC_emoticon(“:s”)

    I’ve loved each product I’ve tested, and I am thrilled with their prompt payment. Before they began with PayPal, which I elected and receive the next business day, I got my check within a week or two.

    Even though they changed to $3 per survey and an entry into a sweepstakes, I decided to stay with them because their surveys are always enjoyable, concise and don’t waste my time. :-)

    I’ve always found them very helpful if I’ve ever had to email about anything, so be patient when you write.

    Hope this encourages you. :!:

  97. Don – it appears you were experiencing some tech. problem, I suggest you contact them by email. I have done Pinecone surveys for over 4 years, never had any problems.

    One more time, please be patient with paid surveys, and at the same time understand that paid surveys is just a way to make extra money.

    And I know what I am talking about. :0

  98. I was able to join this survey site, got my first survey today and guess what, their site apparently is broken as I couldn’t get past the page that said to type I ACCEPT. I wrote to the person who sent me the survey but never got a response. This is the third site I went to based on mysurvey123.com with poor results and now I am thinking mysurvey123 doesn’t know what they are talking about.

  99. [quote name=teree]Hey I signed up two weeks ago — I havent heard anything. Should I reapply?
    [/quote]
    NO. I suggest you wait a little bit longer.

  100. I am so anxious to get signed up for this survey site that I keep thinking that something went wrong because I haven’t heard from someone. Then I sign up again and remember…oh yeah they said I wouldn’t know for a few days…I CAN’T WAIT!!! LOL :D

  101. Last year I was a member but then I moved and for some reason my computer did not give me any Pinecone emails. They didn’t come in Spam either. I think it was because I downloaded a program that I wish I had never even seen! :cry: Wish me luck! ;-) ~Donna

  102. Hi Angke,

    Mina is right. Survey is just a way make EXTRA money, not a way to make a living..

    Sign up with as many as survey sites as you can – it will increase your survey income potencial..

  103. If they are paying 3$ a survey and you get 2 a month that would be 6$ a month? So where is the income, if that is all they can do and a few samples that would hardly be sufficient to be called income,or is there something that I don’t understand?

  104. :-) I JUST FILL OUT MY REGESTRATION FORM AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING YOUR SURVEYS, I HAVE WAITED ALMOST TWO FOR THIS, I REALLY HOPE THAT YOU ACCEPT ME.
    THANK YOU,
    AIDA

    :D

  105. Hey im worry :sad: why i havent receive my payment ? i dot it two surveys one the 22 decmber and other the 29 and hope so this is just for the holidays but in the survey history i see it the payment…. :sad:

  106. Pinecone is one of the best. A no nonsense survey co. $3 per survey, check received within a week or can use paypal.

  107. Hi Joan,

    Just got the news that Pinecone UK campaign just went down! Sorry!

    Subscribe my newsletter or register an account, I will keep you updated.

  108. Hi Joan,

    Thanks for letting me know the problem. I have contacted the advertising network regarding this issue, and will get back to you as soon as possible.

    By the way, Pinecone UK is looking for Male members, so if you can have your Hubby/BF(male head of household) you might be better chance get accepted.

  109. Yes it did. Im in. I have been going to different sites that claim to update whenever a new banner for pinecone is found and yet they never told me about this one. Thank you so much for having that banner here. :D

  110. I signed up with pinecone and within 1 month i was accepted and took a survey and recieved the check all within a 1 month it was wonderful. Just waiting for more.

  111. Hi Sandra,

    Thanks for sharing your experience! Agree with you that Pinecone research is a great survey company!

    Welcome and hope to talk to you again!
