Pinecone Research is an online marketing research panel that conduct online surveys to collect opinions on new products from consumers on a designated country. Most of their surveys involve in households components such as hygiene products, pet treatments and electrical items. To qualify for a given survey, Pinecone would usually send a short and brief survey about your household to match the appropriate study. There will even be times when you will receive a 'hands on' task in which you must try out the product yourself. Pinecone will send you a package that contain the test product from which a detailed instruction is included. You will then required to take another survey after a certain amount of time to collect your personal opinion and experience with the product. You can join Pinecone research for free but you must be at least 18 years old to become their panel member. Their panel membership is mainly available for UK, USA and Canada.

There will be two possible ways to earn with Pinecone which is through taking online surveys and winning a cash sweepstakes. Similar to my last post on Make Money with LightSpeed Panel, they do not have any referral or affiliate programs in their network.
  1. Surveys For Cash
  2. After you have qualified for a survey study, Pinecone will provide you with a particular password to access a designated website to take the survey. You will be paid $3 for each time you have completed product evaluation surveys and usually each survey will take around 15 - 20 minutes to complete. Panel members are expected to receive one or two surveys monthly.

  3. Cash Sweepstakes
  4. Each times you have completed a survey, you will automatically entered into Pinecone's bi-weekly sweepstakes where you can win $600 in cash.

You can select your payment preference to be PayPal or check from the email sent by Pincone. There is a minimum of $1 for payment by PayPal and are transmitted almost immediately after a survey completion. For check payment, you must reach the minimum threshold of $5 before requesting for a withdrawal. Pinecone checks are valid for 120 days.
