I am finding more and more that you spend 20 minutes to complete the survey only to get directed to a screen that says you are no good match for the survey.
When you contact MintVine customer support they tell you to email a 3rd party (which never responds to your emails).

Thank you for the feedback and we apologize for the frustrating experience. Surveys are provided by our business partners and are sent to members through MintVine. When there is a particular issue with a survey, we encourage members to make the survey provider aware. We also take this in to account when acquiring surveys so we can give the highest probability of completion to our members.
This site is ok. The survey site pays, but all of the surveys that you do (besides the coin offers) become on hold and you cant use your points for a week or so.
Join a few months ago and the surveys are refreshing in comparison to what other survey sites dish out.
I have been dropped at the end of a survey twice. When I asked why I was reimbursed, the first time. The second time I had argue mildly when I got a "that sometimes happens quotas fill" form letter. But they again paid out.
The site has went through several security changes in the few months I have been using them, I really hated to see the loss of the area where we could choose why we didn't want to take the survey. "Too long" is very legitimate reason for me.
I'd give them a 5 rating but I haven't experienced how long a cash out takes yet.
I've been with this site for a few months and I have been able to cash out a few times BUT cashing out can become a chore. First, there are the surveys where your payout is delayed by a couple of weeks THEN once that has passed and you want to cash out, you're looking at about ANOTHER WEEK to obtain YOUR money while MintVine has had access to it all along. I don't like this tactic. One other thing to consider is the fact that if you have ANY questions, I wish you luck getting someone from MintVine to respond. They are NOT very responsive no matter what anyone says. Use this weak ass site at YOUR OWN RISK but you have been warned.
The worst customer support ever. They say they do appreciate your business but it does not reflect that way. I contacted them today at 1 am and received a reply before I woke up, but it was simply a line of response, it clearly meant that my issue was not looked into. I was not compensated what I was promised and redirected as DQ'ed after completion.
Edit: this is what I replied when i was said that I was disqualified by support member at mintvine. Clearly, I was not disqualified but was redirected as so. "I did complete the survey and how could I have told you what the survey was about if I had not qualified? they even have my name and address. I can tell you exact names of the products that I was shown on the survey. the page on opinionetwork with mintvine logo also did came up and said the points would be reflected on my account shortly. Beyond giving you the information about what the survey was about, I don't have any screenshots. If screenshots are absolutely required to see that I completed the survey, I'll indeed start doing so. I hadn't screenshot because of the non-disclosure agreement. Please let me know if you also need the URL's of the survey site that it went through. It was not just a single redirection, I was redirected multiple redirection to multiple panels. If you can't give me the points that I was promised, it's okay. The survey was about product testing, I'll contact back later when I receive the product."
