Pinecone Research is Accepting New Members: Earn Cash for Taking Surveys!

Whoo-hoo! Pinecone Research is once again accepting new members in select demographics right now.

This is one of our absolute favorite survey company to work with. The amount of surveys that they offer is great, and they pay $3 cash for each survey that you complete. You can also be entered into sweepstakes to win additional cash as well!

Sometimes Pinecone can be extremely hard to get into, so if you want to earn a little extra money make sure to try to get in now before they stop accepting new members again.

Boogie on down to the comments section and let us know if you were able to get in!

I’ve been a member of Pinecone for many years, probably 10 or more. It was not until recently that we had the rewards points system. Im glad they also have the cash option to load my compensation into my Everywhererewards Mastercard (debit card) the only problem right now is that you can’t access the website to check your card’s funds balance. The website seems to no longer exist. I was just there last month to check my card balance, but have done some surveys since then and lost track of my balance.
It does no good to have money on a card if you dont know how much you can spend! I hope PineCone gets this bug “issue” worked out, so us panelists can get back to things being “normal” again. the website address for the card is:
Good Luck!

I still don’t understand even with last response from PineCone. I’ll try the question phrased another way.

Can I no longer click cash to receive a check? Or can I collect points ONLY for merchandise?

Thank you!

Thanks, Rebekah! The option to choose cash completely slipped by me, so it’s nice to know that it’s still available as a payment choice. I’ve had some challenges even getting to their website–not sure why, but it loads reeeaaallly slow and sometimes times out. I’ll try to get on again and look around a little more. That said, I have enjoyed Pinecone. You don’t get a ton of surveys, but they are easy, Pinecone pays out within a day or two at the most, and they don’t seem to send you junk.

I did this last night and was able to get in!

Pinecone is great–I’ve been a member for a couple of years. Please note, however, that they no longer pay cash. They pay points that you can redeem for all sorts of merchandise. I haven’t redeemed anything on the new program yet, but it all looks like quality items. I have my eye on a new flat iron–and I figure I might as well save up for it this way!

Thanks so much for the update on the new point system! It appears that you should still have the “cash out” option, which allows you to convert your points to payments in $3 increments.
Here is what I was able to find in Pincone’s FAQs:
How do I select the cash out option?
Follow steps to redeem your rewards. Once logged into the reward site, under Departments List in the left column, click Featured Awards then select Cash Out option from the list. Click the Cash Option at the bottom of the list then select the quantity of $3 amounts you wish to redeem. If you receive payment via Everywhere Reward Debit MasterCard, funds will continue to be loaded onto your card. If you are currently receiving PayPal payments, then you will be able to continue receiving PayPal payments with the Cash Option. Please note that if you request multiple cash payments it will be combined and issued as one payment for your convenience (i.e. 3 x payment will be one payment of $9). Click on “add to cart” and click “checkout” to complete your order.
Have you had any luck using this “cash out” feature?
