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
Once you complete your first survey, which is always rewarded with a minimum of 300 points, Pinecone Research will automatically send you a check for $3.00 to the mailing address on your profile. 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!

"awesome site"
June 11, 2015 by jill from United States

I very rarely get disqualified, which is great. The only reason it doesn't get a 5 rating is that it gets my hopes up for getting a product test each time. I've gotten to try two products this year though so I really cannot complain.I am happy to be a member and feel this panel is among the best.


"SIMPLE"
June 10, 2015 by Nathan from United States

Easy lemons, no harder than filling out a job application, not to personal. I give a thumbs up.


"Absolutely the best"

Surveys are few and far between but rewards are worth it.


"One of the BEST!"
June 08, 2015 by Carol from United States

Once you get in, never leave! they may not give many surveys, but you always get paid for your time. They do have streaks of several surveys a week and then its quiet. But they still are one of the best for Paypal/Cash. Their merchandise is overpriced and sometimes cheesy. Dont know if anyone eve claims any of that stuff.


"The best"
June 08, 2015 by Indre from United Kingdom

I have been with this panel for a year now and I think this is the best one in terms of time spend and rewards. They do tend to send 1-5 surveys a month only, but whenever you receive a survey invitation you are guaranteed £3 as they do not screen you out - they always want your opinion whether you tried the product or not. Their surveys last 15-30 min and are very straight forward. Sometimes they might send you product to test (I have received it few times) and ask you to fill additional survey for which they will pay additional £3. They have reward catalog as well as paypal (I usually use Paypal - the amount you redeem is minimum £3, thus you can redeem after each survey completed and the money get transferred within few days).
