*HOT* Pinecone Research (Awesome Survey Company!): Accepting New Panel Members

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Yay! For a limited time, Pinecone Research is once again looking for new panelists!

If you are interested in earning a little extra money from the comfort of your own home, you’ll definitely want to head on over and apply to become a Pinecone Research panelist! To get started, go here and answer a brief questionnaire to see if you meet the current recruitment needs. If you qualify, you’ll be redirected to the sign up page where you will need to fill out the form with your information so that you can start receiving survey opportunities.

As I have said many times before, I personally believe that Pinecone Research is one of the BEST survey companies out there!  In fact, it’s ranked as the #1 survey site on Survey Police and has an A+ rating with the BBB! That’s pretty awesome if you ask me!

What’s so great about Pinecone Research? You’ll get paid $3 for every survey you complete, which is a lot higher than most survey companies, and they are very prompt in their payment (you’ll even have the option of getting paid by Paypal, via check, or via a debit card!). Plus, you’ll be entered into their bi-weekly Sweepstakes to win cash prizes! Seriously, you can’t go wrong signing up for this survey company.

Check out what a couple readers had to say about Pinecone Research:

If you can get in with Pinecone, they are an awesome survey company. I often get good sized trial products in the mail to try and keep, and you get a debit card that they load with your payment about 2-4 days after taking each survey. This is just about the only survey company I do anymore.

I’m a member of Pinecone, and I have to say that I love this research company, they are very quick mailing out their checks for a completed survey. Also their surveys are very short and interesting!

I have been with Pinecone for about a year and a half. It is my favorite survey site. Once you get a survey you know you already are qualified for it. You don’t get kicked out mid survey. I get my payments put directly into a paypal account. Payment is deposited in a day or two. I have only been chosen to try three products so far.

I was able to sign up with Pinecone the last time Collin posted that they were accepting new panel members and I absolutely LOVE this company! With other survey companies, it has taken me numerous surveys to even gain enough “points” to get a $5 gift card. My husband knows I do these and was incredibly impressed that I’ve got quite a few $3 checks just in the month or so of signing up. I love having that extra little cash! It adds up after a while!


*Keep in mind that these spots tend to fill up fast, so if you’re interested or know of someone who might be interested, better hurry on over here and apply before the spots fill up!

    It looks like I qualify but I dont know where to sign up

  • Amy says:

    I didnt qualify but thanks for the tip. I try every time…I guess there are just too many people like me! ; )

  • Dayna says:

    I really like their easy surveys and quick payment to my PayPal account. Also, the opportunity to try products. I received a product…can’t say what… this morning to try for 1 week and I get paid for trying it and completing a survey afterwards. Love getting paid for trying a FREE full-size product. :) I joined quite a few years ago when I learned about it on your AWESOME website. Thanks!

    • Amanda says:

      Dayna, I also learned about Pinecone from this site and am so grateful for it. I have gotten to do several product trials and I always enjoy them! I hope you have fun with your latest one! :)

    • Shelbey says:

      I agree with you Dayna. I received a product yesterday afternoon to try and I love how everything is full size. I signed up with them 4 months ago and this is my second product test. I’ve also made over $50! I love the quick payment method of Paypal and they are super prompt about payment. BEST survey company! They’ve allowed my family to have little splurges like coffee shop dates that we couldn’t comfortably afford before. I can’t say enough good things about Pinecone. :)

  • Hiro says:

    I was qualify last time she posted, since then I think I already got 5or 6 checks.

  • J says:

    This is my favorite survey site

  • Lacey says:

    Seems like if you’re qualified you’ll be redirected to a SIGN UP page. I was accepted and I was redirected to a page where it asked me to fill out my info. From there you confirm though e-mail and you are assigned an ID and password.

  • couponmommaof3 says:

    I believe theyre only looking for hispanic origin. I checked no the 1st time and didnt qualify, went back and checked yes and qualified. Didnt sign up though. Im not a dishonest person lol. I would want everything to be accurate. Hopefully this comes around again. stay at home mom, 1 income home. Id love to have some extra cash to do more couponing lol.

  • Tracy says:

    when I entered my info said they didn’t need me when I clicked that I was hispanic, mexican, cuban it took me to their sight but didn’t see where to sign up (though I am not any fo the above so I wasn’t going to sign in anyhow) would love to have the opportunity the next time though thanks for the post

  • sally says:

    how do you know if you’re accepted? do they tell you right away or do you wait for a response? I got an email witha password and ID then filled more questions. Kind of confused though, haha!

  • Jesi says:

    anybody have and experience with Hotspex?

    • couponmommaof3 says:

      No but when I 1st read your post i had to take a second glance because I completely missread it lolol…I thought why is this on a couponing sight. Pfftt

    • Jim says:

      yea, i wasn’t impressed with hotspex. in fact, the ones that are on the list aren’t all that good. that’s just a top list of sites that everyone knows about, that also pay, and that mostly have no referral system either. it doesn’t mention that you need to get up to $50 for globaltestmarket, or that cashing out on surveyhead can take 4 months. there are other, better sites for surveys that are not listed, such as paidviewpoint and quickrewards.net – both of those pay within 24 hours, and QR has no minimum. PVP and QR also have a referral program. i would have LIKED to have placed my referral link, but this isn’t my forum, and i’m not sure that colin would approve.

  • Michelle says:

    I love Pinecone research! I’ve been doing it for about a year and I usually get about 2-3 surveys a month. Each survey usually takes about 20 minutes and it pays $3. The payment is loaded each time onto a prepaid mastercard debit card that they send you when you first sign up. Funds are loaded by the next business day and since it’s a mastercard you can use it anywhere. It’s earned me about an extra $75 so far. I highly recommend them!! “)

  • Jade says:

    I entered in all of my info (I am Hispanic) but all it did was take me to there home page. I dont think it is available anymore.

  • Tat says:

    I got accepted last time but I have not heard from them as of yet. I am hoping I have done everything I should as this is the only survey company I have signed up with!

  • Sue P says:

    I LOVE that if you receive a survey from them, you actually qualify. Most of the others waste a ton of my time sending surveys then telling me I’m not qualified after I put 5-10 minutes into them. This one is legitimate!

  • lorenjenny says:

    does anybody know how to sign up? help!

  • Sandra F says:

    I also signed up on the last post and have had one survey offer. I didnt set up paypal so they sent me a $3 check. I had completely forgotten about it so it was a nice surprise. :)

  • CB says:

    Didn’t qualify :(

  • Jessica says:

    I got in, they emailed me with a pretty large questionnaire after the original one =]

  • Crystal says:

    Looks like right now they are only looking for people in the 18-24 year old category who are not hispanic. That’s the only category that brings up the registration page.

  • Emilytwinmom says:

    I have been a member for years, and while I have never been sent anything to test I sure do make some ice cream money! LOL!

  • Melissa says:

    I didn’t qualify…thanks for the try!

  • Pinecone is the only survey company that I do online. I LOVE them and have made probably $100 last year alone doing surveys. I just received a product to try yesterday and I’ll be doing the survey and making an additional $3 plus getting to keep the product! I can’t say enough great things about them. :)

  • Renee says:

    I’ve been a new accepted member since the last time this was open for new members but I have yet for them to email me any surveys to do :-( Guess they forgot about me :-(

  • alexea says:

    i myslef am 20, i know like wow ur very young, anywho i did everything and said i wasnt hispanic(which i am not) and it took me to the sign up form just wanted to help out any of the other newbies at entering survey sights

  • Robin says:

    Did anyone recieve a welcome email as stated in the confirmation email? I didnt recieve it yet..

  • Karen says:

    When you do these surveys do you have to claim tax on it.

    • Jim says:

      you don’t have to claim them as income unless you make $600 or more for ONE survey company throughout the year. So, if you are with, for example, opinion outpost, pinecone, and eSearch, and you make $500 on opinion outpost and esearch and $120 from pinecone, even though that’s a total of $1,120, you don’t have to claim them because each company paid you less than $600.

  • Ashley says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I got accepted and can not wait to make a few extra bucks here and there!
