    Yes, unfortunately that's right.

    Crazy when any site lets you get well into the survey, or complete it, and then says it's met the quota so you don't get paid. They should do something about that, since it's a real turn-off.

    I haven't used this site much but I have just reached enough points for my first payout. When I click on redeem it says I have to verify my email, address, phone and payment method. This is all ok except for the phone. I have entered my mobile number and apparently should receive a code in order to verify it but the code never arrived. I have tried a few times over a couple of days but nothing is coming through. Anyone else had this problem?

    Well i was quite impressed to, they replied almost immediately and sorted the problem.

    My next decision is to choose how to cash out my points. I was just going to do an Amazon voucher but it is saying 100 points for $1 so i wasn't sure how that worked when i get the amazon voucher in £££s.

    What does everyone else cash out as? Is there a charge for paypal? I am not actually sure what 1000 points is worth.

    I cashed out for a Tesco giftcard, I chose that because I do surveys for another site which pays in Tesco e-giftcards so I'm stashing it all for Christmas, plus I save with Clubcard too so come the end of November I should have a nice pot to pay for the festivities.


    Does anyone know this? Once you've validated your phone number with Mintvine (or in my case had it done for me) is that it, or do you have to have a code every time you withdraw points?
    TIA

    Have cashed out 5 lots of 1000pts so far, and each has been £13.10 in Amazon vouchers. The best paying survey site for me.

    I have to admit that i'm impressed with their customer service. I completed a survey, but was then told that I didn't qualify. Filled in the form to complain, and two hours later they've approved the survey payment, it's not even showing as pending.
