Many people want to know how they can earn money in their spare time but with so many online scams it is hard to know where to start!

One of the most respected online survey sites around is Pincone Research. They pays around $3 per survey which take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Every two weeks you will also be entered to win even more cash!

When looking for applicants this site can be rather specific about age and other attributes so if you can’t get in this time, don’t worry just check back and try again!

      Are you Hispanic? Seems they are cutting people off if they are not Hispanic.

    • Trawas01

      I joined them a few months ago. Quick surveys and the turn around time on your cash is quick. 

    • 5higgins

      I joined around the first of June and have done about 7 surveys already.  It really is legit, my check comes within a week and now they have a paypal option too.

    • Candabaldwin

      What are some of the other legit survey companies?  How much do they typically pay for each survey?

    • Bluebaby1aav

      it let me through to their website but there is no place to sign up…after reading several different things I finally found that you can only sign up from one of Pinecone Research banners.  They periodically post on various websites. :(

      • Jennifer

        It also let me through, but that was it. No place to sign up. Bummer.

        • Stusanb39

          Do a google search for Pinecone Research Banner and you can get the the link that allows you to sign up.

    • 2hottotrot2

      yes, after the survey asked me 3 questions they determined there wasn’t any available jobs “in my area.” Either I was the wrong age, race, etc…oh well…what’s some more legit survey companies?

      • Dtcox1

         me too in v a

    • Limayriz

      Help! How do I sign up? I am going thru the Facebook link that Jenny put up, I answer all 3 questions and it takes me to their web page and I don’t get anything else.

    • So I either got denied because I am 29, actually went to college, or because I am not Hispanic, Spanish, or Latin American. I am baffled. Would have been nice to make extra money to pay for my wedding/honeymoon.

    • They have rejected me for years.  Not holding my breath that they will ever have an opening for me.

    • sue

      how do you sign up? After I answer the 3 questions, they take me to their website where I am required to sign in. But I haven’t signed up as a member yet. How do I do that?

    • Nakoal07

      i am 22 and white and i was accepted.. so i guess its not just hispanic..

    • Natalie

      Opinion outpost is a good one too!  I’ve been on since the beginning of the summer and I’ve made $50 already! :)

      • Meredith

         I can’t find on the site where it tells how many points= $ – do you know? Anything you can tell me would be helpful! Thx! ;) M

        • Robin Lyn

          100 points will get you $10 on your Paypal account.  I took my first survey and it was worth 15 points.  I guess $1.50 for about 10 minutes of taking a survey was not that bad.

    • Candice

      25-34, college, not hispanic doesn’t qualify, but 25-34, college, and hispanic does. I did not complete when it accepted the hispanic answer, just did it to see. (although the rest of my family is hispanic)

    • KJ

      I passed the survey but can’t find any where to sign up.

    • Kei2448

      Yay! Took me! 18-25 female white some college was accepted, and I received a survey to complete tonight already!!!

      Do you have to pay taxes on the money?

      Do you have to pay taxes on the money?

      • Nope – they just put it on my card and I spend it like cash :)

    • Noelle704

      25 Asian female with college degree, I got accepted the last time Jenny posted this link, but I was only offered two surveys since then.

      No luck. 35yo white female with college…

    • I’ve been a member for at least a year, I’m 33 and white, college educated and I stay at home. I like the program because the surveys are never too long, and my payments go to my pinecone research card. I forget I have it until I suddenly realize it’s got $75 on it! It’s a nice program :)
