I like that the payout threshold is low and the interval to receiving reward is reasonable, about a week. However the screen-out rate is very high, so you can spend a fair amount of time to qualify. The reward scheme is very linear, so not very much incentive to accumulate large pool of points, unless there's something specific you want.
Even with daily visits and completing peripheral activities, don't expect more than $100 a year. Even though this is a low yield survey activity, I like their style and have it in my high priority section.
This is a good site for earning cash, if you can deal with the wait period for the surveys to clear (2 weeks). But it's accurate and fair. Most times if you don't qualify for a survey you still get points. I've cashed out once and received payment in about 4 business days. They also have a good customer service portal.
Best payouts of any place I have used. Had a few problems in beginning but going well now.
Seeing this site rated so highly absolutely mystifies me? They are an aggregate site. They have no surveys of their own. No one in need of product information or customer opinions trusts them enough to handle their needs. They go out and contract surveys from other sites that are posting the surveys themselves, provide a link for you to take the survey, then keep 30% or more of the incentive. You would be better off writing down the name of the survey site they send you to, and go to that site and join. I joined and was active for a few months until I realized how large of a chunk they were keeping for themselves. I guess for someone who has never been a member of a legitimate site with integrity and above average incentives they may seem like a good site. The points add up fairly quickly. If you are willing to invest a great deal of time I suppose you might get $30 a month if you are lucky. The thing is the incentives paid out were $42 and you are only getting $30.

Thank you for your feedback. MintVine connects panelists to many different survey providers in order to match people with surveys that they are likely to complete.
They were great but about six weeks ago they gradually stopped paying for surveys. your usual "disqualified" notice after you complete the task successfully or "quota filled". They claim I don't complete 80 % of what I complete. I'm cashing out and not looking back.
Update: This isn't a matter of qualifications or being screened out. It's a matter of qualifying, completing and being denied payment.
