Other Market Research Opportunities
Occasionally Pinecone 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!
No pay for the short qualifiers, but the longer surveys pay $3 and you can get Paypal. I don't get a ton of surveys, but I've made a little money with it here and there. The surveys themselves are generally fun and interesting to complete, although they can be lengthy at times.
I've narrowed down my survey panels to 2, and this is one of them and certainly the best of the 2! What I love most about PineCone Research is that they only send you surveys that apply to you, so no more spending 10 minutes to answer questions only to be disqualified. I make anywhere from $3-$10 (usually $3) per survey. They take me about 15 minutes to complete and you can cash out after each survey. I think the surveys are interesting most of the time and they are always easy to answer. My only slight complaint is that they have changed the rewards system so that instead of instant cash out to paypal I have to go the rewards page and select that option each time rather than it coming instantly. I guess that is a perk though to people who would rather get other prizes.
I was skeptical about signing up. After a few days I received my approval. Now I am doing surveys.
I've been with them for over 3 years. They used to send checks for $3 per survey, then switched to a $3 paypal option, and now they do 300 points per survey (which can be redeemed for $3 through paypal).
The best part about them is that if you are sent a paying survey - you will qualify and get paid no matter what. This was an issue I had with a lot of other survey sites. Most make you spend 20-30 min to qualify only to find out you don't and you've just wasted your time.
As long as you just stick to doing surveys, there are no issues.
I did run into something that was obviously a scam, but I do not believe it is Pinecone Research, but a fraudulent company that is paying them for "research".
I have not run into any other issue with them before or since then.
STICK TO SURVEYS and you will be fine.
Pays very well and amount doesn't change. I love this survey site because they pay a firm amount every time and I get surveys once or twice a week. Recently has gotten a little slow, but I have made easily over $30 in about 2 months. So glad I was invited to this panel.
