Pinecone Research Review

By David Harris

PineCone Research, found at, is an online research panel designed to gather consumer opinions for consumer products.

You are compensated for your time on completed surveys only, although Pinecone Research only offers a survey 1 or 2 times a month and sometimes less.

Every so often PineCone Research will offer product testing trials. All panel invitations are via email message only.

Pinecone Research says that survey questionnaires take anywhere between 15 – 30 minutes to finish.

At this point, I must point out that Pinecone Research claims it has been the victim of business identity theft, which means scammers have high-jacked their company name and logo for the mystery shopper scam.

Currently, Pinecone Research does not offer an affiliate or recruitment program and they don’t accept unsolicited referrals.

Membership is limited to one member per household. Rewards are cash paid by check, PayPal and also you can recieve merchandise.

They will remove members from the panel without notice for anything they consider violation of their conditions, so read their terms.

There are enough technical errors, to be mildly alarming, that interrupt your surveys from time to time.

Taking surveys is a nice little hobby that may earn you very little extra money but it at least earns you a little, as opposed to doing crossword puzzles to pass the time.

If you are looking for a hobby, signing up with Pinecone Research won’t cost you anything.

While there are those who enjoy giving their opinions and getting a little back as a hobby, this is no way to earn a living online, it’s really not.

You will never earn enough to quit your day job. I do not recommend Pinecone Research.

Since they do bear the stigma of fraudulent scammers using their name to rip people off, I would be very careful singing up with anything called Pinecone Research until they resolve that matter.

I do not recommend “Pinecone Research” because Survey Club is a much better option…
