    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.

    Really? Since the change it no longer specifies the number of consolation points and I've been screened out of surveys and got no consolation points.

    The process is the same as it was before the rebrand. You receive consolation points unless one of the following happens :-

    - The survey is full. You normally get this as soon as you try to start the survey, but unfortunately it can happen once you've completed the survey as the lazy survey writers decide to check if the survey is full, right at the end.
    - The survey is being run by the Your Surveys company. under the Mintvine branding these were always shown as 0 consolation points before you started a survey.

    The only change is that you now no longer see the number of consolation points before you start a survey.

    I've done quite well with Mintvine but just lately I am getting annoyed by them. I find I get to the end of a long survey only to be told that I do not qualify or that they have reached quota etc. I have tried chasing this up but the message I finally get back is next to useless, asking for details I no longer have as the survey is finished..............
