Survey Types
Interesting online surveys that are e-mailed to members, and are on a variety of different topics.

How to Join Pinecone Research

Reward Types and Amounts
Pinecone Research typically rewards its panelists with $3.00 US cash payments for every survey completed. Members may request to receive PayPal payments, or may select other rewards from an extensive product catalog.

Canadians typically earn $5 CAD per survey, while Britons earn £3 per survey completion.

Other Market Research Opportunities
Occasionally Pincone may mail out products for their members to test from home.


Please note that PInecone Research has been targeted by a cashier's check scam. If you receive a large, unexpected check seemingly from Pinecone, DO NOT cash it!

"They pay with points now, but still promptly"
June 21, 2013 by Drew from United States

Been with them for a year and a half, and I'd happily recommend them. Based on my consumer preferences, I usually average about one invitation per month, sometimes a couple more and sometimes nothing, but the assessments for brand name products are interesting and effectuating, and there's usually an option to try a free sample.

However, while they still pay within just a day or two, it's a 300 point account credit now, instead of an automatic check or Paypal payment, and the Cash Option isn't very obvious. I still like the place, just not crazy about the extra steps of redeeming the points with a dozen clicks to check out.


"Prompt payers, interesting surveys."
June 19, 2013 by Roger from United Kingdom

Pinecone is a first class site.
The surveys are not time wasting, but very in depth and interesting. Occasionally at the end of the survey they will ask if you would like to try a particular product and report back, which is a pleasant task.
As reported by others, they pay very promptly, usually £3.00 for each survey.
Another of my favourite sites. Do not believe anyone who bad mouths them.


"Worth the trouble"
June 19, 2013 by Tony from United States

It's worth it for me to take their surveys, even if none or nearly none are really applicable to me or my lifestyle, because they pay you $3.00 a survey to Paypal if you finish a survey. This is important for me because I'm low-income and would much rather have cash in ANY amount than some kind of movie or ticket or "points" that I cannot really use.


"Surveys for Intelligent People"
June 12, 2013 by Holly from United States

I have been a very happy member for several years. I get on average one survey per week with a payout of $3 each time (through points). Occasionally I'll receive a product as well to test out and receive an additional $3 for that. They have it set up to where you can sign into their rewards website to redeem your points for merchandise or CASH. That's why this is for intelligent people only. Apparently a lot of idiots believe that Pinecone got rid of the cash incentive and are getting their childish revenge by making ridiculous statements such as Pinecone being racists against whites and other embarrassing outbursts. Pinecone emailed their members to alert them to the new changes and to assure them that the cash incentive was still an option with instructions on how to do it that way. Please learn how to read people and stop knocking one of the most legit survey companies in existence.


"Great company!"
May 16, 2013 by Amanda from United States

You can still get your $3 payout with the point system! Honestly, I have been with the panel for many years and I love it! They are great! If you don't believe me that the payout is still available go to the rewards store and look for the things that you can get with 300 points (which is 1 survey) and see that it's still there. It takes a little longer, but you still get it! I think they are awesome!
