If you've ever wondered about a totally legit online survey company that pays you for EACH survey that you take, Pinecone Research is the way to go! I joined this company and participated in their surveys for over a year.
Why I LOVE Pinecone:
- They only send you surveys that you qualify for (no more wasting 5 minutes on a survey just for them to tell you "sorry, you don't qualify")
- They send you a $3 check via mail immediately after you complete a survey (no silly points systems that you can never cash out)!
- The surveys only take 15-20 minutes, and you can skip them if you want (though don't skip too many in a row or you'll get booted from the program!). You can also do them while you watch TV like I did!
- You often get to sample pre-released products and then complete another follow-up survey afterwards for ANOTHER $3 check (I've sampled everything from food items before they hit the shelves to FULL packages of name brand diapers! You have to keep any details of the products a secret, though!)
Head HERE to see if you qualify for the program. They only have open enrollment every so often, so if this is something you're interested in, I encourage you to jump on it quickly! Also, please note, they only fill a certain number of spots per age group. Typically, they accept people in the 18-25ish age range, but I know that changes sometimes based on what they need. It should only take about 10 minutes to complete the initial forms and they should immediately know if you qualify or not.
In the year that I participated in Pinecone, I probably earned about $100 (average of 3 surveys per month), and received about another $50 in sample products to try. I loved that I received payment quickly, and while it's not huge, it was an easy way to earn a few bucks while watching TV ;)
