This is an awesome company! Have been doing surveys for them for a few years and nothing but positive things to say. Easy surveys, prompt payment, and occasionally a product to try. Highly recommended!!

I love Pinecone! I do the cash payouts and usually receive my checks within a few days. I’ve been a member for a couple of years – I have no complaints. It’s east money and I sometimes get free products to try!

I’ve been on Pinecone for a while now, and it’s pretty easy to do. They give u a survey about once or twice a week. Each survey pays about $3. Occasionally they’ll send u a product to test. I’ve had a couple sent including drinks and home products not in the market yet. Pretty cool.

Pinecone Research is awesome. I applied several times and finally got accepted last month. I love making money taking surveys and trying out products before they hit the market. I highly recommended them.

I love Pinecone – I do several surveys a week for them. The surveys are short and they pay promptly through Paypal.

I just wanted to thank you. I signed up for Pinecone Research when you posted it and within a few days, I was making money doing surveys. Within 2-3 weeks, I received my first product to try… and yesterday, I just received another product to try.

I am so excited to try these products. I hope the “payouts” are easy like everyone said. I haven’t done that yet. But I wanted to thank you.

Rare Patient Voice: Survey Panel for Patients w/ Rare Diseases & Caregivers (Sign Up & Get $10 Gift Card)

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

Do you or a family member suffer from a rare disease? Or are you the caregiver of someone who suffers from a rare disease? If so, you may want to take a few minutes to check out Rare Patient Voice.

Rare Patient Voice was formed to provide patients and caregivers with rare diseases an opportunity to voice their opinions through surveys and interviews in order to improve medical products and services. Qualified patients will receive a $10 gift card of their choice after joining and will then receive cash rewards after completing a survey or questionnaire. Plus, if you refer qualified patients to sign up (and they enter your first and last name in the Referrer fields) then you will receive a $10 gift card.

Check out the email from Hip2Save reader, Tiffany, who is currently a Rare Patient Voice member…

There is a company called Rare Patient Voice that does surveys and interviews for people with rare diseases about their medical care, quality, and services. This is not just for people who have the condition, but also for their caregivers. Each time you fill out a questionnaire or survey, you get a bit of financial compensation. About a month ago, patients with Ulcerative Colitis received $250 for just one survey!

When you first sign up, you get a $10 Amazon gift card. Then anyone who signs up and puts your name as a referral – you both get another $10 gift card. I personally have Crohn’s disease. I received $20 because I signed up and then my husband signed up under me. I haven’t taken any surveys yet, so I’m not sure how much compensation you get for each one, but this is really legitimate in what/how much I’ve gotten so far.

Some of the many diseases that qualify as “rare” are:

Bleeding Disorders
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Cystic Fibrosis
Sickle Cell Disease
Huntington’s Disease
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH)
Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia (WM)
Lupus
Gaucher
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Hepatitis C
Crohn’s Disease

If you do decide to sign up, I’d love it if you put Tiffany Thomas as your referral so I can get credit for it!

KidzEyes: Where Kids (Ages 6-12) Earn Money

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


Do you have kiddos between the ages of 6-12 who want to earn a few extra bucks?! If so, head on over to KidzEyes, a website that conducts market research among 6-12 year old kids (note: this research is compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). KidzEyes has clients that are interested in hearing kids’ opinions in order to provide better products and services for children and sometimes they are interested in hearing parents’ opinions too, in which case, you will help earn your child(ren) additional KidzPoints.

Here’s how it works…

* Kids complete the surveys that they receive from KidzEyes via email (surveys are emailed to both the kid’s and parent’s email addresses). Upon completion of the survey, kids earn KidzPoints that can be turned in for cash or prizes (100 KidzPoints = $1). Most surveys are worth between 50 and 1000 points, sometimes more…the longer the survey, the more points they award. The KidzPoints system works kind of like a bank account and KidzEyes will even keep track of your KidzPoints in an online piggy bank.

* After 1000 points ($10) is reached, your kids can cash them in or they can save them up for something special. When the points are cashed in, your kiddos will then receive a check in the mail, in care of the parent or legal guardian.

* Each month, kids will also receive the KidzEyes SuperPoll survey which enters them into a sweepstakes where they could win up to 10,000 bonus KidzPoints (worth $100)!

* In order for your kids to become a member of KidzEyes, you (i.e. the parent/guardian) need to complete the brief registration survey found here. You will be able to register multiple kids at a time, so the sign-up survey only needs to be completed one time per household. The registration process takes about 10 minutes AND as a thank you for completing the registration process, KidzEyes will award each kiddo you register with 500 KidzPoints ($5)!

* Only families that currently live in the United States are eligible to sign up for KidzEyes.

Check out these comments from Hip2Save readers who currently use KidzEyes…

This is a great survey site! All of my children have earned at least $30 over the past year- not a killing, but I couldn’t afford to shell out an extra $90! It gets them excited too because they are really earning their own money!

My son loves this, and was even picked for a boxer short trial. He got to test some underwear and got paid to do it. He thought that was the best. He has been saving his money in his account and have about $60.

My boys love KidzEyes and love getting checks in the mail. The put most of them in their savings account. My older boy is taking part in an underwear study right now. :) He just received his third pair of boxer briefs to try out.

This is a GREAT survey panel. The surveys are fun for kids and it’s very easy to earn enough money to cash out if you actually take surveys. My 9 year old loves it.
