Pinecone Research: Get paid $3 for Each Product Survey Completed

Offer has expired now, sorry!

Great news! Pinecone Research is accepting applications. Pinecone wants to hear from you and pay you for your opinion. Pinecone Research is one of the most reputable companies I have heard about. I have actually been hearing about it for the past two years but open sign up period has always been elusive. It is great to save money but it is also a great idea to have a chance to make some money from the comfort of your own home.

I hope someone who has been working with them will share their experience in the comments section.

    I have been doing surveys for Pinecone research for the past 1/2 year. It is a lot of fun and you get paid to tell them your opinions on cool upcoming products. Last week I even recieved a large sample of a product to test out. Over the course of 6 months I have made around $80 just for doing something I would probably do for free. Get in now if it sounds interesting to you, as they fill up super fast! I was lucky enough to have my brother in law get me in with an invite.

    I have been doing pinecone surveys for about 6 months and really enjoy it. The surveys aren’t terribly long and I do enjoy getting to hear about new products. The one thing I didn’t like was that they would mail a check for each survey, so you’ve got to deal with lots of $3 checks. Now they will pay you via PayPal which is awesome! I have the PayPal debit card so that’s cash in my pocket, and you usually get paid within 48 hours of completing a survey. I highly recommend signing up!

    I have been doing Pinecone surveys for a few months. I have not made as much as the first commenter and I wish I had more survey opportunities. I think survey opportunities have to do with your household structure… the products you own, the age of the children you have etc. Also, register with an e-mail you check. I did not complete my first survey opportunity and I received an e-mail requesting a response to tell them I was still interested. I like giving my opinion, so this is nice, easy cash for something I like to do.

    I’ve been doing surveys with them for the past several years (a friend got me in with an invite about 3 years ago). It’s been in the past year or so they they bumped payment from $5/survey to $3/survey plus a sweepstakes entry. I’ve been sent several things to try in addition to completing surveys. They are quick to pay. I also like that they pay via PayPal. I leave the money in my PayPal account and use it as “mad money” when I want to buy digital scrapbooking stuff. 🙂

    I think it does depend on your household. I get about 2 survey invitations a week, so it’s not huge money but it helps. They will periodically send a ‘household questions’ survey that provides them with more demographic information to better gear the surveys to the appropriate people. You don’t get paid for those, so I didn’t do them for a while but now that I have been completing them I get more surveys sent to me.

  • I love Pinecone. I have been with them over a year, and just got to try out my first test item as well. Quick pay and good opportunities for interesting products!

  • I have been a member of Pinecone for about 4 years. I have gotten to test out numerous products for them which my family thinks is cool, and although probably haven’t made what the first commenter said she made in 2 years, I do enjoy the product tests.

    make sure you use your regular email address when you sign up. I have never gotten spam from Pinecone and they email you your survey invitations.

  • How do I sign up?

    I’ve signed up twice in the last 2 years and never got a response back, I can only assume they don’t want the opinions of someone of a certain age even though I shop like everyone else and use new products too.
