Have you ever taken one of those insanely long screener surveys with other survey companies only to be told at the end that “sorry, you don’t qualify for this survey.” I have, and it’s incredibly frustrating! With Pinecone Research, they send you brief (it takes 2-3 minutes to complete at most) “household surveys” and based on that, they determine what surveys you qualify for. So, when you get an actual survey from them, you’re qualified! I have also done product test studies for them. Usually, they send you a product to try for a set amount of time and then you receive compensation at the end for completing a survey about the product. Sometimes you have to return the product and sometimes you get to keep it.
Pinecone Research compensates you for your time by paying a flat $3 per survey (you do not receive compensation for the brief household surveys). You can receive payment via Paypal (I usually receive mine within a day of completing a survey) or by check.
You can only sign on with Pinecone Research during open referral periods, so you want to jump on this opportunity. I have been with them for almost five years now and they are definitely my favorite survey company to work for!
