Pinecone Research General Information

Pinecone Research

Pinecone Research
Pinecone Research is a trusted leader in the survey panel industry. They are owned and operated by a market research company known as Nielsen, whose operations are headquartered in New York. Pinecone Research is focused on improving the quality of tomorrow’s products through collecting international research.

Survey Types
Interesting online surveys are e-mailed to members, and are on a variety of different topics. Surveys usually take about 15 to 20 minutes of your time to complete. Pinecone may also send its members very short questionnaires that take about 2 – 5 minutes to fill out, and although these questionnaires are not compensated, they are still important in making a difference.

How to Join Pinecone Research
Because Pinecone Research is an invitation-only survey panel, potential new members must be invited by other members to join, or must find a join link posted on a website. SurveyPolice is currently offering Pinecone Research signup links for Americans, Canadians, Germans, and people living in the UK. » Click here to join Pinecone Research.

Reward Types and Amounts
For each survey taken, Pinecone Research awards its members with a minimum of 300 points. This equates to $3.00 USD for every survey completed. Canadians typically earn $3.00 CAD per survey, while Britons earn £3 per survey completion. There are a variety of options that accumulated points can be used towards.

  • PayPal - A minimum $3.00 balance is required. PayPal payments are processed within 3-5 business days without any extra fees.
  • Check - You may request a check after taking one survey or if you have accumulated $3.00. S check will be sent to you by mail and will have a longer wait time than PayPal.
  • Amazon E-Cards - You can choose to receive an Amazon gift card with your collected points. The e-card will be sent directly to your email account.
  • Catalog and Gift Cards - Pinecone Research offers an extensive catalogue of gift cards and merchandise options. Some of the gift card options include Starbucks, iTunes, Walmart and many others.

Earn your First Check Automatically

There is a security measure to establish your profile and account. After your first check, you will have the option to choose the form in which you would like to receive your future rewards.

Product Testing Opportunities
Occasionally, Pinecone may mail out products for their members to test from home. In some cases, you may be allowed to keep the product once you have finished testing it!

Bi-Weekly and Quarterly Sweepstakes
Pinecone Research conducts two separate sweepstakes (a bi-weekly and quarterly draw), as a thank you to their loyal panelists who participate in survey taking. Bi-weekly sweepstakes are usually an impressive $500, but it gets even better with the quarterly sweepstakes, which award $4,500 to one lucky winner. IIf you are a winner, your name, last initial and state will be published on the Pinecone Research website.

Quick Customer Service
If you have a question on anything Pinecone Research-related, do not hesitate to send in an inquiry through the website. The response time is usually 1-3 business days, or even quicker depending on the workload of employees during the time of your question.

Eligibility: Pinecone Research is an invitation-only panel.

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 attempt to cash it!

"Enjoyable Survey Site"

I have tried multiple products with these guys and you consistently receive payment for every survey you do.


"The best one in the world"

Is very good. No downsides for this survey site.. i hope it continues.


"Good"
April 18, 2016 by Lindee from United States

This is the best survey company I belong to. The surveys take a very reasonable amount of time and there is no chance of disqualifying. They always pay on time and the compensation is good compared to other survey companies. The only bad thing is that they are very unforgiving if you fall behind in your surveys. I was out of town so I was late with a product review and they won't send me any more home product tests. I belonged to their panel in the past and they closed my account for falling behind in surveys. If you belong to this survey panel, you have to be really good about taking every survey they send you!

If they send you a survey that doesn't require logging in, don't take it. I've had problems with those types of surveys twice now where I didn't get paid. They are not very helpful if you write to them about compensation. They are still good for their normal surveys though. I always get paid for those right away.


"AWESOME!"
April 16, 2016 by Harold from United States

They credit my account quickly and have interesting surveys. I wish they would send me more.


"Hungry for More"
March 25, 2016 by Dan from United States

I can't complain about the payout per survey from this site ($3 per) but they come at a rate of about one or two per week. That would be the only downside for this site.
