PineCone Application Links + Other Paid Surveys

PineCone Research remains one of the better paying and reliable survey companies, with a payout of $3 (check or PayPal) for each 15-minute online survey. The annoying part is that they only take applications intermittently. Here is the current application link at Pinecone Research, which is again accepting new members. (May expire at any time, so apply now if you’re interested!) Looks open to all, but only one person per household can sign up. Thanks @gbhargav for the tip.

Some users have reported a recent increase in unpaid “weed-out” surveys, while others seem to remain happy.

Other legit survey sites in my experience are SurveySavvy, InboxDollars, Opinion Outpost, GlobalTestMarket, NFO MySurvey, and BzzAgent.

More thoughts on paid surveys in general here. I call them Bored Money – not terribly efficient but you can do it at your leisure and occasionally get to try some neat things like shampoo, dog food, new soda flavors, and once a new $100 Sonicare toothbrush which I got to keep.

  1. Thanks for sharing the link with everyone I have been with Pinecone Research for over 2 years and I love them, while you will not get rich with them you will get 3$ every time you complete one of the surveys with them.

  2. Can I ask which survey site got you the free Sonicbrush? I’ve been a member of a few different survey sites like Surveyspot and Pinecone, but rarely get any free samples. Is there one of the ones you mentioned that does that more than the others?

  3. I get free samples from pinecone every couple of months? When I first joined, I rarely if ever anything. More recently, I’ve started to get stuff about once a month.

  4. @Zack – I think the Sonicare was from BzzAgent, but I’ve also gotten stuff from Pinecone as well.

  5. i have been following paid surveys for years starting from the time i discovered how large companies were gathering market pulse during my consulting days. i have an entire website and newsletter dedicated to paid surveys. on the site, i focus on the companies that provide the highest return on time invested, and talk about how you can really expedite exponential income growth. completing surveys is trading time for money. however, referrals is where your income truly gets a boost.

  6. Survey Review says:

    I having been reviewing survey sites for 5 years and counting. Pinecone Research is truely a legit site. I have been a member of Pinecone Research for over a year now and I have never had any problem recieving payments.
    I would certainly recommend these guy to any one wanting to make some extra money online!
