Mintvine is great! I have just joined & I cashed out twice already. The $ was in my paypal account within a few days. I will be cashing out for a 3rd and 4th time as soon as my survey points clear. I get survey invites multiple times a day, and I hardly get disqualified! I love this site!

Things started out well with this site. I was able to get over 500 points right away (need 1,000 to cash out for $10) then things stalled. I haven't been qualifying for surveys. I'm only accumulating points by getting the 5 points for not qualifying and answering their polls at 5 points each. Also, like another person mentioned, I don't like the fact that they don't remove surveys from the list after you try them, so you don't know which you've done and which you haven't. I'm going to stick with it until I get enough points to cash out for $10. After that I probably will not continue using MintVine.

Fast Payout

October 29, 2013 by Craig from United States

Though you don't get that many survey opportunities, you are given 5 points for every survey you try, even if you are disqualified. They also let you know early in the screening process whether you qualify for a survey, which tells me this site has integrity. I got my first $10 very quickly and it was deposited into my paypal account within 2 days. So far, this site is worth checking out and seems to operate with integrity.

Nice User Interface might have potential

My feeling is that this is a pretty new portal.

I cannot say anything yet about the payout process.

The site itself is very well made but seems to have some bugs still.

In a week I have been invited to 3 studies.

One was for boat owners. Hmmmmm why did I fill out all of the survey profiles and clearly stated that I do not own a boat.

The other 2 have been marked "currently closed. the customer wants to review ... bla bla bla".

So no survey.

they also have the "offers" you find on a lot of portals these days (trialpay etc). etc.

Whenever I click on an offer I am being told I am not logged in. ......... hmmmmmmm

I still did 2 offers (obviously I am logged in when I click an offer out of my account home page) and did not receive points for both.

One I understand. It was one of the "surveys" where you click trough a zillion offers. Finally you can upload a photo and create a zombie out of it.

I used a photo of my ex. So they probably thought I was cheating as he looks like a mean Zombie to begin with.

I hope they do improve and would gladly edit my review in that case.

I delete my account at 3 hmmmmmm´s so far we are at 2.
