Sign Up for Pinecone Research & Earn $3/Survey ~ Accepting New Members, All Ages


YAY! My favorite survey company, Pinecone, is once again 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.

My husband and I have both participated in Pinecone and found the surveys to be brief (and even enjoyable) — and best of all, we got paid right away.

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.

You can learn more about other survey opportunities here.

  1. I signed up for it last time you mentioned it and have done a couple of surveys. I still haven’t gotten paid or been sent anything. Am I missing something?

  2. Chava, there is a point system. You have to sign in and on the homepage there is a redeem rewards option to click. (Not sure but I think that’s what it’s called.) anyway, when clicked it goes to the rewards catalog which is huge! Plus I was shocked at the amount of points I had racked up.
    I’m only interested in books as rewards and their selection is impressive. Everything from literary classics to old and new scifi to best sellers. I bought 3 books from them so far and they came fast and I’m thrilled.
    im really happy with this site. If you can’t find your points, leave a note here. I’ll try to step by step it for you.

  3. It just told me “there are no openings for a household that matches yours at this time.” I guess not everyone can sign up.
