Pinecone is my favorite of all the survey sites I’ve been a part of. Wish there were more out there like this one.

    Thanks for the reminder to give them a try. I’ve been trying for a while now, but I never qualify. Hope others have some luck

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome Sarah! Hoping you qualify soon!

  2. Jessica

    Love pinecone! I’ve gotten like 3 surveys just this week 🙂

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! So glad to hear that Jessica!

    • Renee

      Any tips on how to be accepted?

      • Jessica

        Honestly no idea! I got accepted the first time I applied so I’m not exactly sure what they’re looking for.

  3. Taryn Ward

    It always says I qualify but then when I fill out the form with my name and address it says there are no open spots for a household with my alignments. ????

    • Liv

      Same with me! I will just keep trying.

    • Thinn

      me too. I tried many times. still no luck!

  4. Judy

    Id id one of these or one similar awhile back and by the time I was done I never wanted to see another one again. That’s just me. I guess I didn’t want whatever they were offering bad enough. Thought it would be fun but it wasn’t.

  5. Rachel

    Love this! I got accepted just like a few weeks ago. Already made like $21!! Yay😊

  6. CATHY

    I joined several years ago and loved it. However I turned 60 in February and haven’t been sent a survey since. This age discrimination bothers me a great deal. I still shop for the same things I did before and also try new products.

    • Anon

      I did a test run to sign up. I clicked the 55-64 range, female, white. It said I was accepted. It must not be the age thing….

      • Julianne

        It didn’t ask my nationality. Did it ask you if you’re “white”?

    • Nancygaye

      I turned 60 this Summer and I’ve completed and have been paid for many surveys with Pine Cone.

  7. Jtaylorsmith

    I checked the 55-64 age bracket, was told I was accepted. Once I filled out all my information, then it said there were no openings. Hmmm.

    • Amanda

      Think it may have to do with a household member with a certain occupation… ?? It’s the last question before the final determination.

  8. Brittany

    For the longest time I could not get accepted, but one of the last times I tried I used my gmail address instead of yahoo and I got accepted. I answered all the other questions the same, so I don’t think it has anything to do with answering the questions perfectly.

  9. Amanda G

    I’ve tried a few times with no luck either i.m happy that you post this once in awhile, its my reminder to go try again lol thanks !!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

  10. NOW

    I just signed up and completed the survey! It was a little longer than I expected, but yay!!! I’m excited to earn extra cash!

  11. Sylvie

    The web page does not work, after filling up everything it just would not go to the next step, problably a cheap trick to get peoples information

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Maybe try again in a different browser. Hope that helps!

  12. George

    This web page does not accept old people disgraceful

  13. Julianne

    No luck here. 45 college graduate.

  14. Amy

    It accepted me, I’m excited to start getting surveys! I’ve been hesitant in the past to sign up but decided to bite the bullet, I’m ready to make some $$$ for a little bit of my free time.

  15. Amanda

    I qualify, just never availability. I guess we have to keep trying.

  16. lilkim

    I’ve done quite a few survey sites, and this one is my favorite. They always pay you $3 per survey (!!) And if there are issues, the customer service rep responds to my email promptly and accurately (a lot of other sites send canned non-personal responses that don’t even address the issue). I have been saving my credits up, and have $60 in my account to use for Christmas gift cards. Last year was about the same. Thank you for introducing me to Pinecone and always doing your best to vet and post the best legit deals.

  17. Angie

    Has anyone had the extra offer from Pinecone Research for installing their mobile app? I don’t want to ever put in any credit card info so I was just curious before I proceed. Any help?? Thanks in advance 😉

  18. Allison

    I signed up for Pinecone years ago and was accepted. I got the welcome email telling me what address to add to my contacts so that it didn’t go to spam. I did that and have not received a single survey. Ever. I can’t re-enroll because it says that I am already a member. You’d think being mid-30s with 2 kids under 10 might warrant a survey or two. It’s been about 4 years, I think.
