PineCone Research (headquartered in Cincinnati since 1998) is accepting new signups who meet the criteria below.
They do not offer long, high-paying surveys. The surveys are short (10-15 minutes max).
But the compensation is $3 to $10 per survey, and they allow you to withdraw your earnings immediately and in actual cash (check or PayPal).
They will also occasionally invite you to test new, unreleased products, and will pay you cash to complete a brief follow-up survey.
Test products can include small kitchen appliances, electronics, snack foods, energy drinks, razors, high-end makeup and cosmetics, etc.
Big brands like Apple, Sony, Clinique, Ulta, Nivea and many more use this type of pre-launch research to help improve products before launch.
NOTE: This is a rare opportunity to sign up. PineCone is often times at full capacity in the United States, and has even removed the signup link from the home page of their website.
Spaces are very limited and are first-come-first-serve so do register now.
NOTE: You must confirm your email address after joining PineCone to activate your account and start receiving survey invites. And you must complete the very short "household survey" to get matched with various products for home evaluations.
