ConsLocating the recruitment banner - no other way of ...

~~ UPDATED MARCH 2009 ~~ Pinecone Research is yet another site offering paid online survey work. However, joining their survey panel is easier said than done. There is no sign up link via their website, as they recruit purely through online banner recruitment on specific target websites. Happily...

ProGreat return rate on surveys answered

ConsHard to find banner

Pinecone Research was one of the first consumer panel websites that I heard about through reviews on Ciao. Described as being one of the most elusive but best paying sites you could be a member of, but only if you found a banner or a pop-up which would give you access into the secret world of...

ConsHassle for sign up, too tricky

--------Introduction------- I always enjoy good online survey sites and most interestingly get paid from it. So far, I have found quite a few good sites on the net who offers good return for each of my 10 to 20 minutes of time. Pinecone research is one of them. This market research is owned by a...

Proregular surveys, fair payment, produt trials

Consnot easy to sign up

I am a member of a variety of survey sites. I enjoy answering surveys, in particular when the payment you get is also decent and reflects the time spent answering the, sometimes, ridiculous questions. There are not many sites where the payout is decent in relation to time spent, but there is one...

ProFantastic rewards for completing surveys

ConsCan be awkward to register with them

Pinecone, Pinecone, Wherefore art thou? That is the question on many people’s lips who want to join this online survey site. What’s so good about it? Well you receive generous rewards in return for completing a Pinecone survey. New and more recent members receive £3 for completing a survey that...

ConsYou've got to sign up first!

Whoever said there was no such thing as a free lunch got it very wrong, for, thanks to the Internet, email, and answering a few questions, I’ve had not only a few free lunches, but also free breakfasts and dinners besides. Pinecone research is but a small part of a large consumer research company...

Probest paying survey site

Conshard to join

It was a couple of years ago when I first fully realised that there is a great potential for earning a little extra cash through signing up for various things to do on the internet. Obviously my main passion is writing reviews on sites like Dooyoo but I've also discovered numerous cashback sites...

ProExcellent rewards, frequent, reliable surveys.

ConsYou have to be lucky to join, IE only surveys.

In pineconeresearch.com I have found an almost extinct trait. This is a survey site that rewards you frequently, quickly and relatively handsomely. I am a member of a number of survey sites including yougov and testandvote but, although they have their relative strengths, none can compare to...

ConsHard to find a sign up banner/link

Since discovering survey sites as a student trying to make a bit of extra money I've become a huge fan. I signed up to my first survey site back in April 2007, so I've been with most of them for long enough to know whether they are worth being a member of or not. Since this point I've signed up...

Several years ago I was searching for how to make money online and found out about this website Pinecone Research. They are a company that pay users to take surveys on all sorts of topics but the surveys are almost always based on a consumer product or brand. I filled in an application form to...

Haven't written a review here in years (usually cause I'm no good at writing reviews) - but just had to write one for Pinecone Research! Pinecone was the very first survey site I ever joined. In fact, I recently figured out I was one of their first 100 panelists! I'm not sure if it was called...

ConsThe panel isn't straight-forward to join.

So I finally joined the infamous Pinecone Research... I'd heard a lot about the company from Ciao, Dooyoo and MoneySavingExpert, but I'd also heard that it was very difficult to join. However one day, on a whim, I decided to start searching for a link to join the site and I found one relatively...
