Lately, I’ve been getting 2-3 surveys a week! I have $50 in my account now. I’m going to cash out around Christmas for some extra money! 🙂


I’ve been doing surveys for about a month with Pinecone and it’s great. I’ve even received free products to test!


This is how I get my Starbucks money… LOL!

    Are they still doing these? I used to get surveys all the time and I haven’t gotten any for months. I emailed twice and never got a response..

    • Brandon

      Yeah I still get one pretty regular. I have made 129.00 so far this year.

    • Zoe

      Same here. No survey since October and no response to emails

      • Ana

        Same here. I havenโ€™t got any response back. Looking into their policy it says:
        we periodically refresh the composition of our panel to stay current with changes in the general population and provide clients with the broadest possible spectrum of consumer opinions. Memberships may be discontinued during panel composition maintenance..

      • Elizabeth

        Me either, so i sent an email this morning. Pretty sure the response was automatic, because i received it so quickly. but it said ” Please note that we’re currently experiencing a temporary higher than normal volume of emails. We are employing additional resources at this time to bring standard response times back to their regular turn around time.

        Thank you for the valuable feedback you have provided regarding the new survey format. We have decided to return to the old format as a result of the feedback that we received from you, our valued Panel Members. We look forward to you being able to access surveys once again in a familiar, easy to use format. There are currently many survey opportunities available, so please keep checking your email regularly.”

        In my opinion, this is great news!!

    I recently joined and it has been fabulous.

    • Erica (Silly Sidekick)

      Awesome to hear!

  3. Jessica

    Love Pinecone ๐Ÿ™‚ I have almost $70 in my account!

    • Erica (Silly Sidekick)

      Wow! That’s awesome!

    They just went back to the old system thankfully. I stopped trying after they switched to the new style, and I never qualified for anything. They emailed me recently and invited me back saying they were going back to the old system with the household question surveys. Since then I’ve had two in less than a week.

    • Cathy B

      Same here Ashley! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • mumm

      This is also my story. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Off topic: I would like to trade my Victoria’s Secret reward card $20 off $40 for a 20% Target coupon. Thanks.

    How do you contact pinecone research, says my email is wrong (it’s not )

    • Frances

      Joy: I would send an email to: scott@pineconeresearch.com
      This seems to be the main contact point for PineCone. hth

  7. Frances

    I’ve been a pine cone member for a while now. With my recent “Points” I cashed out and opted for the e-Visa. I had more than enough money to purchase my Instant pot AND my Ninja 4 in 1 cooker…!! Merry Christmas to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow! That’s AWESOME!! Thanks for sharing your success!

  8. Joy

    Says I meet the qualifications but my email address is not valid, I can’t find any way to contact them

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! Have you been able to try a different browser?

  9. Joy

    Thanks everyone! Hope that works

  10. Priscilla

    Does anyone know of any other legitimate sites like Pinecone?

  11. Xochitl

    I’ve had it for a couple of months and have gotten 80 so far in amazon gift cards. Use them to pay for my subscribe&save deals I get. I have noticed these past two weeks I haven’t been getting any surveys really

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing your experience! Glad to hear you have been able to score some Amazon gift cards!

  12. hip2trade

    My last Pinecone survey was early November. Hopefully I’m not cleared out of the system yet..

  13. *Angela-Miles*

    Excited they are going back to the old system! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. kahila

    everytime I apply it says I’m not qualified ๐Ÿ™

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      DARN! Hopefully next time!

    • Sarah

      Same!!! Iโ€™ve been trying for 2yrs and it always says I qualify and then says sorry, no you donโ€™t. ๐Ÿ™

  15. VickiB

    I have been doing this since the last time you guys posted and i love it! Even got free samples!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Sweet! So glad to hear you have been enjoying it!! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Jeanette

    I Love Pinecone. I have been doing their surveys for a few years.

  17. Jodi

    Love Pinecone! Such an easy way to earn money!

  18. Emily L

    Anyone else answer some of the basic questions in the beginning and then all of a sudden it says the survey is not available in your area? The last 5 or so have done that to me.

    I’ve had a great experience in the past but ever since the change to the new system and then back to the old I am unable to complete surveys due to what I said above ๐Ÿ™

  19. pmany0324

    Love pinecone! I have been doing surveys for them for a few years now and I love them. I am getting about 2-3 surveys a week and also another perk is you get free samples in the mail to try and then a few days/weeks later they send you a survey for that sample. I’ve cashed out many times usually around the holidays or during back to school season. Easy and quick way to make a few extra dollars!

  20. *Angela-Miles*

    Random (posted this on another post trying to find help Lol); Does anyone know of a cash Back site that allows you to book hotels with rewards programs??? For example, Iโ€™m trying to book a hotel using the marriot rewards program but when I went thru ebates and swagbucks they both say if you use any rewards or discounts itโ€™s not valid!!! Just trying to earn a few dollars off my stay if any ones knows any websites?? ๐Ÿ™‚
