My favorite survey company, Pinecone, is now accepting new members.
Pinecone Research is one of the oldest and most respected names in marketing research. Panelists take brief surveys, for which they are pre-screened, to evaluate new product ideas. Each survey pays $3 and Pinecone pays out very quickly – via check or Paypal.
Once you sign up for Pinecone, check your email from a confirmation email from Pinecone. There will be a link to a brief survey (it took me about 5 minutes) so that you are pre-qualified for your surveys. That way you don’t have to waste money answering questions and then finding out you don’t qualify.
The money isn’t going to make you rich, but if you’re online a lot anyway, it is a nice way to pay for a coffee date with your spouse.

And here’s what one KOAB reader, Rivka H, had to say about them:
Pinecone is my favorite survey site, I’ve made about $70 over the past year. I think they give the most return for the time you spend on their surveys, and I like that they pay straight cash instead of having to build up reward points.
