    I am on the fence with this site, the payouts are pretty quick and they have available surveys most of the time but whenever I click through email it always says either survey not active or has filled up - even 2 minutes after I get the email.

    However at the minute other sites don't seem to be much better - Getting frustrated at spending 5 minutes to be told either a survey is full or I am not what they are looking for.

    I always find the e-mail invites for the 2 minutes for 100 points type surveys are always full when clicking on them, but the 20 minutes for 25 points are always available, but I just purposely screen myself out of those and get my consolation points.


    I'm quite selective with the surveys I do for them, some are ridiculously low paid. If it turns out to be a tick box one though I close it straight away, found to my cost in the past that you just end up in a never ending series of surveys.

    Waste of time
    I have just spent 3 hours on the Mintvine site. Only one in about 20 surveys were suitable. Many asked a bunch of questions and then announced they were closed. Many links went to other surveys which immediately said they were closed already. The massive majority asked questions that Mintvine held in my profile and said I was not suitable.
    Overall it was a waste of time and I would not recommend them.

    I would not recommend them either you get a few good surveys but most are either unsuitable or work out at about 40p for 15/20mins if you are lucky and do not get screened out towards the end.

    For balance, this is far and away my favourite site. I do work from home though and do surveys in my 'down' times. I cash out constantly and always have 2 or 3000 pending at any time,
    My quality score is high and I wonder if that's why I get so many well paid surveys, not sure. I do get plenty of 200 points for 6 minutes surveys and complete them and like the fact even if I do get DQ'd I often get 30 points for trying. I racked up 700 odd points yesterday alone including a 200 point short survey.

    There is much to get to grips with on Mintvine, offers, Ad-Wall etc. but I love it. There is always something for me to do on there but as I said I work at home so it's easier for me to make the most of it.

    Just joined Mintvine, to see how good it is and so far not impressed.
    1. Having difficulty getting emails, they just end up on my ISP web based mail server in the trash even though they are marked as not spam
    2. Can't verify my phone, it seems to only accept the US format numbers even though it shows the +44 prefix before entering the rest of the number.

    Beware of MINTVINE
    Mintvine has changed now to BRANDED surveys and are now not paying people what they owe them .If you see the site "SURVEY POLICE" you will see many complaints including being chucked off the site for using a "Proxy Server" and not replying to any emails ??
    This is the second site that I know off that is cheating people (IPOLL) so please beware !
    Shame really as they were a really good survey site till last week.

    Thanks for the heads-up, this has been my favourite site and I should be due another cash out today.
    Will take a look at survey police.

    I've already switched over to Branded Surveys - and my balance has switched over also. I did the daily survey through Branded yesterday and everything is as it was on MV. No problems here so far.

    I tried to log in but I can't, and I also can't re-set my password. So I've not idea if I had any money left in my account. I doubt it though, I stopped using them last year because I got screened out so much.

    MintVine paid me yesterday - a day early so no issues here. Obviously, I might be speaking too soon...

    Anyway, maybe now is a good time to remind people not to let a balance build up on any site. Always cash out as soon as you hit the threshold.

I say carry on, keep to the rules, withdraw at any chance you get (I'd say that about any survey site) and see how you go. It has been great and I will be disappointed if that changes but hey...

    This message is what a lot of people are getting

    "Our indicators are showing a proxy server and we will be unable to do business with her until this changes."

    This is complete rubbish as they owe me 50 dollars and will not pay up .

    It seems like they've stopped giving consolation points now. They were pretty much the only reason I continued to do surveys with them so think I'll knock it on the head next cashout.
