Looking for a fun and easy way to earn some extra cash? You’re in luck! Pinecone Research once again has open panelist positions. It’s free to join and one of our favorite ways to earn, so don’t miss out.

Pinecone Research is a survey company that pays you for your opinions on new products. Most surveys take 15 minutes or less. The number of points you’ll earn will vary for each survey, but most will equate to about $3.00 each.

Here’s how the sign-up process works:
  1. Go to the Pinecone Research website.
  2. Fill out a short initial questionnaire (gender, age, ethnicity, education level and contact information).
  3. Check your email for a message containing a log-in and password, and follow the link in the email to sign in.
  4. Fill out a short five-minute survey about your household, income and basic shopping habits.

After you’ve signed up, when opportunities become available, Pinecone Research will contact you to participate.

As with every survey site, you’re rewarded for the amount of time you put into it. At the end of each month, you can cash out through PayPal or put your points towards prizes or rewards like movie tickets, home goods and more.

Plus, with each survey you complete, you’ll have a chance to enter their bi-weekly and quarterly prize draws of $500 and $4,500.
