Pinecone Research is one of the best market research paid survey companies out there. They have a great reputation of being a reliable paying paid survey company, and have consistent survey opportunities for panel members. Most members including me usually receive 1- 2 surveys from Pinecone every month, Pinecone used to pays $5 for each survey. Pinecone Research surveys usually are easy and short (most surveys took me 5 – 10 minutes to finish). I also have done quite some product testings for them.
Right now Pinecone Research are paying panel members $3.00 for each paying survey and a sweepstakes entry for each “household” survey (household surveys are “screener” surveys used by Pinecone Research to determine potential paying surveys for panel members.) Pinecone Research ofter members two options to accept the payment – check or Paypal. I choose Paypal and usually receive Paypal payment the next business day (before Pinecone offers Paypal they even sent me check payment BEFORE I took a survey once!). Following is a screen shot of the Paypal payment I received from Pinecone for completing a survey:
Pinecone Research doesn’t accept members at their website, instead they recruit new members through advertising or member referrals. You need to find a Pinecone sign up banner or sign up link in order to join Pinecone Research Survey Panel.
Please Note: If Pinecone Research Banner or sign up link is not available, please subscribe my Newsletter and I will send out email alert to my Newsletter subscribers when Pinecone registration is open again.
Please note again:): sometimes you will see a Pinecone Sign Up Banner states they are looking for a specific kind/group of people, (such as certain age or ethnic group), you don’t have to worry about that, since they might just accept you as a panel member even if you are not their originally “targeted” members.
The sign up process to Pinecone Research is really quick and easy.

Once you finish signing up, you should receive a confirmation email from Pinecone Research later (It used to be just 1 or 2 business days, but now it could take weeks.) informing that you are accepted as a new Pincone Research panel member, along with your username and password. (I received the confirmation email the next day after I sign up with Pinecone) If don’t receive the confirmation email it is likely you are not accepted at the time but you still can try signing up later.
I have noticed that some website are giving so called “tricks” or “tips” on Pinecone. I just want to point out I would NOT recommend anyone to listen to those “tricks”. For example, when you see the sign up banner says they are looking for 18 – 24 year old or Hispanics, don’t say you are Hispanic or you are 19 when you are not. It is not right to lie to get into the Pinecone panel (or any other market research survey panels), and you might get caught later on and get kicked out. If your demographic fits what Pinecone is looking for very likely you will be accepted and given survey opportunities. If for some reason you have trouble get accepted by Pinecone, pleae don’t get discouraged, it’s really not a big deal – because there are so many other good or even better survey sites you can join!
Another thing I want to remind everyone is it is AGAINST Pinecone’s policy/Term of use to talk about your survey and product testing experience with Pinecone publicly. When you sign up with Pinecone, you agree to keep everything confidential. And this is actually what you should do for ALL paid survey/market research companies.
A few more things I like to address:
First, I have read somewhere on the net (couldn’t remember where it was lol) that somebody saying you have to use IE brower to take Pinecone Research surveys – this is simply not true. I have been taking Pinecone surveys with Firefox for a long time and never had a problem.
Second, a while ago Pinecone Research asked members to download a program/plug-in, again some website are warning everybody saying there are possible Trojan in the plug-in. Again it’s another false alarm, lol. I don’t want to get into the detail, since it reall doesn’t matter – because I have never downloaded the plugin, but I continue to receive surveys from Pinecone Research.
Third, sometime at end of a survey, Pinecone might ask you if you are interested in testing a certain product for a manufacture, if you answer yes, it doesn’t mean you will receive the product to test. I have been asked numerous times of the same question, but I have only got a few chances to test products for Pinecone Research.
Okay that’s about all I want to address. I really like Pinecone Research a lot. Yes I make more money with a number of other paid survey sites, but Pinecone is still my favorite. They have interesting surveys and product testing opportunities, surveys generally are easy and short. Pinecone Research is fair and very reliable, and they are the fastest paying survey company.
I highly recommend Pinecone Research! But once again, remember to sign up with other great paid survey sites on the FREE Paid Survey Lists as well to make more money with paid surveys!
