Pinecone Research- Updates and a New App!

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for a while, you know how much I love Pinecone Research. I’ve been singing its praises for years.

It’s getting better! Now there is a Pinecone Research Mobile App. The new and convenient mobile app gives you access to the full experience of your membership on the go. Not only are you able to take surveys and redeem your rewards, but you also have the ability to make updates to your panelist profile.

To get started, click either the iOS or Android download links below.

Rewards Site: The Pinecone Rewards site is receiving a facelift! Browsing rewards options is now easier than ever and new catalog options are available. Starting October 6th, you can redeem your rewards via Direct Deposit (ACH) to a bank account of your choice. They added this as a secure way to receive cash rewards quickly and direct to you!

In addition, their offerings include virtual Mastercards and Amazon Gift Cards. Keep in mind that if you have joined the panel in the last 30 days, your first redemption must be via ACH Direct Deposit to verify your rewards account. After your first ACH Direct Deposit redemption or 30 days of being an active Pinecone member (whichever occurs first), you will have the ability to redeem your points for any reward option in the catalog.

I downloaded the app yesterday and did 3 surveys. It was a lot quicker and easier than using my iPad or laptop! I can’t wait to redeem my points for an ACH deposit.

Fetch Rewards: Want 4,000 easy points? Refer friends!

 

 

 

One of the reasons I love Fetch Rewards is that they run incredible referral bonus offers. And I LOVE telling everyone all about Fetch Rewards. It is my #1 favorite cashback app. There are thousands of referral bonus points just waiting to be claimed.

Now through 10/6/2020, you’ll get 4,000 points for anyone who signs up using your code. And the deal is sweet for your friends too! Each friend who signs up gets 2,000 points.

 

 

If you haven’t signed up for Fetch Rewards yet, or want to learn more, check out my post here. Find the Fetch Rewards app in your app store, and when you download it, use my code ND2TB when you sign up and you’ll score 2,000 bonus points.

In 2020, I’ve earned $75 in Amazon Gift cards! Sometimes there are extra point offers for buying specific brands or items, which is how I’ve earned extra points- but it was stuff I was buying anyway!

In order for you to qualify for the increased referral bonus, your friends must enter your referral code and complete a valid receipt now through 11:59 PM PT on 10/6/2020. After 11:59 PM PT on 10/6/2020, the referral bonus will expire. Your custom referral code can be found in app under Me.

Sad News! Radial Insight Receipt Rewards Program is Ending!

I received an email earlier today and I’m bummed, but honestly, I’m not all that surprised. Like all awesome programs that pay well, they have to come to an end.

Unfortunately, the Receipt Rewards program will be ending on October 1, 2020. Current members can continue to take advantage of the other great programs, including traditional email surveys and Radial Insight On Demand.

After October 1st, rewards will no longer be issued for submitted receipts. For instructions for deleting the Receipt Rewards browser extension, please click here if you use Chrome, or click here if you use Firefox.

If you are on the hunt for some easy to do rewards programs, I suggest UpVoice (more info here).

Earning Rewards with UpVoice!

I was going through my rewards programs today, trying to figure out which ones I could cash out with- the pandemic has really slowed my hustle down, especially since we aren’t going out as much daily (That means no more Field Agent secret shops or audits), and there aren’t as many surveys on Pinecone Research or PaidViewPoint these days.

I remembered that I hadn’t cashed out with UpVoice in a while and I was sure to have some points- I had enough to cash out for a $10 reward, and I’ll probably get another $10 reward in a few weeks.

If you haven’t heard of UpVoice, I wrote about it here. 

It’s super easy, especially if you spend a lot of time on social media. It’s a Chrome Extension- Nothing weird to download, nothing hard to do. Add extension, do internet stuffs as usual.

OH- and for the record, I picked a $10 Amazon GC. Because you never know when you will need something from Amazon. 

 

Earn Money for Staying Active with Achievement!

b0e5d5e05457e2c8a12dc87c9b6eafc7 (1)If you are like me, you are looking for a way to stay physically active while gyms and fitness outlets are closed. The kids and I have taken up Pokemon Go- It’s a great way for us to get out and remain active while having something that keeps the kiddos engaged.

I’ve worn a fitness tracker (I have a Fitbit right now) for almost 10 years. I’ve been using Achievement to earn extra cash for tracking my steps and exercise for about 3 years now.

It’s super easy to use: Connect your fitness tracker (see the list below) to Achievement and be rewarded when you exercise, sleep, and log calorie or water intake.

It is non-intrusive, and you’ll earn points that can be redeemed for cash via PayPal, gift cards, or you can donate your earnings to various charities.

I earn $10 in PayPal cash about 4-5 times a year. I usually use it to reload my Starbucks Card.  It’s a nice little perk for being active.

It’s super easy to get started. Click here to sign up! This is my referral link- If you sign up using my link, I earn an extra points.

Achievement is compatible with over 20+ Android and iOS apps (and counting!).

Turn Your Junk Mail into Rewards!

I love sharing all the ways I earn extra money, especially when they are quick and easy. The Small Business Knowledge Center (SBKC) is my ace in the hole! I’ve been participating in their program for over 10 years, and I earn on average $120/year.

It’s simple. As a panelist, you will earn rewards by sending SBKC direct mail and email communications that you might otherwise disregard. SBKC mails you postage-paid envelopes, you stuff your junk mail into it and drop it into the mail. I send one envelope each week. The more you mail in, the more you earn!

The Small Business Knowledge Center (SBKC) studies marketing techniques and practices.  They securely dispose of your junk mail after they are done with it- no need to worry!

pngYou will receive points for your junk mail, and once you receive 2000 points, you will receive a $20 pre-paid Visa GiftCard!

You can also forward emails to SBKC as well.

They email you once a month to update you on the number of points you have and with any special projects they have going on. A few times a year they look for special types of mail, open enrollment solicitations, IRA, or other investment/retirement info. When they want those materials, they’ll email you and let you know- usually, there is a bounty of extra points available too!

Unlike many other programs, you can sign everyone in your home who is over the age of 18!

If you are interested in signing up, visit the SBKC page here and click on the JOIN NOW button. In the box next to: How did you hear about the SBKC Consumer Panel? Please type my name: Abby Hewes. I get points for referrals, and once you sign up and refer your friends, you will too!
