Pinecone Research Accepting Applications Again

One of the ways I earn money from home is to complete surveys.  One of my favorite survey companies is Pinecone Research.  They have recently changed their surveys to earn points towards gift cards, etc. from being a cash paid survey site, but it is one of the better ones out there.  I received this email and invite you to apply to become a member as they don’t often have openings: 

**It’s not too late to take advantage of this special opportunity to refer households to apply for membership on the PineCone Research panel.**  If you have already assisted with this effort – thank you and please feel free to disregard this email. 

PineCone Research is growing and we invite you to help!   We are offering select members the opportunity to recommend membership to a friend or relative who is NOT a member of their household. 

Do you know of households that would like to join the PineCone Research Panel? If so, please FORWARD A COPY of this email to each household you would like to refer so that they may click on the registration link shown below.  That household should complete the registration form themselves and submit it. REMEMBER THAT ONLY ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD MAY REGISTER. Multiple registrations of the same Household will void all registrations.

Here is the link to the registration:


As a member in good standing, you’ve already seen the benefits of being part of PineCone Research. So please, share the benefits of membership with a friend. Don’t forget, please don’t tell them about any of the products that you have seen in our questionnaires or tried in your home. Remember, it’s important that your PineCone Research survey and product testing experiences remain confidential.

If your referral has any questions, they can email us at scott@pineconeresearch.com or click on the link to learn more about PineCone Research.



While this is not a paid referral program, we genuinely appreciate your help in spreading the word that PINECONE IS GROWING!

Thank you,

Karen Scott

Checking your receipts and saving money

Today I am not going to post about any particular deal, but I wanted to emphasize paying attention to your receipt.  I had a coupon from a retail store (I won’t name) for $15 off any $15 purchase.  I went to the store and asked a sales associate if there were any restrictions and there weren’t.  They also had a huge clearance sale going on as well for 70% off and then I could use the coupon as well.  I knew what my total would be approximately and when I went to check out, the woman said, “Wow, you got all of that for $17!”  I didn’t want to make a scene because well, I had gotten two pairs of jeans and two tops for $17 and some change and left the store.  Then I looked at the receipt and one of the items was an override.  I think somehow the override caused my coupon to not work properly and instead of my total being $6, it ended up being $11 more than I had anticipated.  I really didn’t want to speak up and then I went to run my next errand.  I then started thinking as I went to my next store that I should have spoken up.    Would I just give someone $11 for no reason at all?  Even though I was somewhat embarrassed to go back to the store, I did go back and explain that I think my coupon wasn’t rung up properly.  The different sales associate tried to argue with me that it did several times, but if I came back this far, I told her that it didn’t.    They were having computer issues so she had to re-type everything by hand and basically exchange it and re-ring it up, but at the end of it, I got $11 and some change back.   Earlier in the day, when I went to the grocery store there was another promotion that didn’t ring up.  I then examined my receipt and realized that for whatever reason, the promotion did not work.  I will go back to the store at a later time before the sale is over when I am by that store to ask for the money back.  I had asked the cashier when I was checking out if the promotion had come off and she said that she didn’t know and couldn’t tell.  I was in a hurry so I didn’t examine it further at the time.  The moral of the story is to pay attention to your receipt and hold on to your receipt.   If you know a cashier makes a mistake, to speak up.  Today’s errors totaled about $20.   It’s $20 I could use for a rainy day, a treat for my kids, money for charity, a dinner out, etc.
