This used to be one of the BEST sites on the web, but for the past week and a half everything seems to be going to hell in a hand basket. People are complaining about not being able to redeem their points (the "redeem' button has mysteriously disappeared for some) and they (MintVine) have added a "qualifications" page that just keeps repeating itself, so without checking every time you do a survey, you are not sure if you have been awarded points or not. There have been several instances where a survey appears in your queue and when you click on the "start survey' icon you get a message "You have not been invited to this survey" Really???? I've sent 2 emails to "support" (receiving only the form letter with the "thank you for letting us know about this problem, we will contact you within the next 48 hours") Nope. Nope they will not because they haven't. I have tried to contact them via their Facebook page (which they apparently have time to update with cute animal pictures several times a day, but have no time to respond to members or fix their site) but to no avail. Going to give it a few more days then if nothing changes will probably cash out and go on. It's a shame because they used to be so dependable.
Ive been using this site for years now and never have problems with the customer service. Occasionally the survey company themselves will mess up or DQ after i almost completed but if I tell mintvine they always look into it and its always been in my favor. Everything about this site is great except they do have a pending period (to make sure you're not cheating/being honest etc) which is 15 days. Then once your points are approved they have to reach 1000 (10 bucks) to cash out. Thats another 3-5 days to wait for cashout. I've only used paypal so im not sure if they offer giftcards etc. Would of gave them a 5 if it wasnt for the unusually long approval time, i understand why they do this just think it shouldn't be as long.
I have been very happy with MintVine since I registered in October last year, I am still receiving about 10 invitations per day, but as soon as I open the survey, I got a blank screen that reads: "Please wait while we redirect you..." and that is the end of the survey. I do not even have the opportunity of being screened out. This is going on now on 100% of the surveys.
These are the transcripts of my communication with MintVine and their responses:
Re: "Please wait while we redirect you..." Static screen!

Why after a survey is offered and I click "continue" to complete it, the next screen is blank and reads "Please wait while we redirect you..." and a blank screen stays that way for ever?
Is this the new way to let us know that the survey is not available?
This is going on for almost 75 % of the survey offered during the past few days.
I would appreciate your response

We're sorry we're running into a wall with your surveys! Our surveys open and close very quickly; we're working to optimize the notifications process.
There are many survey opportunities created daily and we will continue to improve our matching capabilities.
Please let us know if you have any other issue.

How can you explain that all of a sudden during the past week ALL of your surveys "open and close quickly" (as you have stated) even the surveys received 10 minutes ago. It seems that your panel has become more popular than any other panel that I know. Honestly, I believe that something has changed in your system that needs to be openly disclosed to the panelists (I am not the only one who has experienced this issue lately) based on the same level of honesty that your company requires from us when completing your surveys.
An honest response would be appreciated.

We apologize for your frustration. Sometimes surveys fill up within
minutes of being sent out and it is difficult to anticipate the
rate at which they become unavailable. We are working to improve
this process for the best member experience possible.
Thank you for using MintVine.
Please let us know if you have any other issue.
6/13/17 Response from Panelist to MintVine
Your panel procedures must have changed notably during the past few weeks without prior notice to your panelists.
I agree with your statement that your company needs to improve its system, therefore, I suggest that you do not offer surveys that are already closed. Please save panelist's time that could be used to complete surveys with another company and get rewards that cannot get from your surveys. Thanks in advance for your understanding on this important issue.

We are working to improve our panelist survey matching capabilities. Thank you for your feedback.
I've been a member of Mintvine for over a year, and suddenly started having trouble receiving surveys going from about 14 or 15 a day to none. When I contacted the CS Dept. I received an email stating that there might not be any surveys available and when I questioned this and the fact that I had redeemed 1900 points and enquired about that the next day I received another email that my points had posted to paypal and there were still no surveys available. I think that when you call them on their practices they reluctantly give you what you redeemed and stop your surveys. If I had not been receiving 15 or more a day for over a year I might believe their explanation but am inclined to think this is a load of bull.I finally got a reply from mintvine and they said that my account was somehow put into inactive anyway am now receiving surveys again, but still not pleased with the 2 week verification process.
this is a good site when you get to 1000 points then you can cash out and it doesn't take long to get you money
