I am a lover of surveys, as my regular readers will know. One of the first questions that I had when starting out was ‘How to join Pinecone Research?’. I found a link that allowed me to sign up and I have been a member for years now.
Pinecone Research surveys pay £3 each, £4 for longer standing members. I personally find that the surveys take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete, on average. The surveys often lead to product trials and the same amount of money is paid for the follow up studies. I am not allowed to talk about the specific products that I have tested but I have had LOTS. I find that I usually get at least 1 or 2 product trials per month. I have been a member for a number of years now and the surveys are nice and frequent.
On occasion Pinecone Research will send out surveys that require you to answer a few brief questions for an upcoming project. These are unpaid but they are listed as ‘household questions’. These surveys usually consist of just 2 or 3 questions, mainly asking you about products that you may use. These take about a minute to complete, on average, and I usually receive a survey off the back of these. Personally I would prefer to answer a small amount of questions to ensure that I get a targeted paid survey that I qualify for in the future.

The current payment for completing a survey is £3. You can cashout via a number of different methods, I go for Paypal. I let my balance build up for a month or so at a time. You can cashout each time you receive a £3 credit. The credits for surveys completed are usually processed and added to your account within 24 hours. An email is sent out when you get a credit added to your account.
