PineCone Research Panel

pinecone research

One thing I do to make a little extra money is online surveys. I love giving my opinion about products and getting paid to do it! There are so many different survey sites out there that it’s hard to determine which ones are worth your time and which ones are even legit! (Number One Rule: Never pay to join a survey site! They are supposed to pay you!) Well, I am going to tell you about a great survey site that is not only legit but one of the best out there!

PineCone Research Panel is different from most survey sites. Most survey sites will have you spend nearly 10 minutes filling out basic questions about yourself before they even begin the survey. Sometimes you won’t even qualify for the survey and won’t be compensated for the time spent completing the pre-screening questions! Pinecone only sends out surveys that you are already qualified for! They will frequently send out “Household Questions.” These are short 5 minute surveys that will determine if you are qualified for a variety of surveys that they have available. Not only are the household questions short but you will be entered into their bi-weekly cash sweepstakes every time you complete one. Then they will send you surveys that you are qualified to complete. Best of all? You get paid $3 for every product survey completed! Period! I usually get at least one survey a week and they rarely take more than 20 minutes to complete. You also get paid immediately after each survey, so there’s no waiting to reach a “threshold” before you can request a check! You can choose to either receive your checks by mail or be paid via PayPal. Another great thing about PineCone is they occasionally send you products to test out (and keep!). You can read more about them here.

The only negative about this great Panel is that it’s hard to get in! You can’t just go sign up! When they are looking for new members you have either come across a banner or be invited. I have some good news for you though! PineCone Research Panel is currently looking for new members!

Sign up here!!

Only ONE member per household can join! Multiple registrations of the same Household will void all registrations.
