"Really Bad"
August 08, 2017 by Kallie from Canada

It used to take two weeks for points to be released directly from the website. Now any survey, whether it is a direct survey or an offer, it takes minimum two weeks, with a minimum 5 days to get your points redeemed for a gift card or cash. If it is an offer, no matter how high the point count is, they will give you maximum 56 points, even if they promise more. Recently I had points rejected, and withdrawal times extended. I can't qualify for most surveys even if I initially do and often times I will finish a survey saying I did not qualify. Offer survey websites decreased my quality score to as low as possible the moment I got it back to 100 after they lowered it after I tried to raise it. Many of the surveys say I qualify initially, only to say I don't two minutes later. The website is too much hassle and stress to keep an account. Recently I tried to delete my account and profile page and delete account option are not visible anywhere. I tried to get in touch with mintvine over time, with no one ever responding. Not worth it! Do not sign up!

"Good Site but Beware"
August 06, 2017 by Seraphia from United States

I have been a member of Mintvine for a year or two now. The surveys are pretty good overall. You have to wait a pending period before the points are credited to your account. Most surveys if you don't qualify you will get a few points for it. However, quite often, as of late I don't get credited at all because the survey is "not open yet", "quota is full" or something similar. The "not available yet" surveys are the ones that irritate me the most. If it's not open then why send a link for it? Payments take a few days regardless of who you request payment sent to. You can gift card or sent to paypal or something similar. They verify and then send after a few days. Typically takes 5-7 days (work days). Until recently I've had no issues. I received my payment but when I went to my account I found that they had put me in the negative. Thought it was just an error and would clear up until I checked again and it was still there. Turns out they have penalized me for THEIR mistake. I requested ONE payout and they sent me two. Instead of simply cancelling (because when I first saw I had only received one) they just put me in the negative. Not too pleased since it was a mistake they made. So while this is a good site...be careful that they don't get you or waste your time.

"Waste of time"
August 04, 2017 by Jay from United States

Mintvine disqualifies me from reviews when I'm already 20+ minutes into answering questions. Happened to me twice today and I don't have time to waste. Pay-outs are small. Not worth it.

We are sorry to hear about your negative experience with MintVine. Thank you for your feedback.

I have been doing surveys for 3 months. It has only become more difficult to complete them. There are quite a few features available but they don't work. The incentives that I have gotten are nice.

"Banned and rebanned!"
August 03, 2017 by Linda from United States

July 31---finally got squared away with being banned twice and getting no concrete responses. Now, I wind up sifting through 36 daily surveys and not qualifying for more than two in a week. Oh, I might earn anywhere from 1-5 points when disqualified on some of them, and I do complete the Daily Poll. I'm finding now it's not worth my time. I used to have points in the two-week pending stage for 25-35 surveys. Now, maybe three in the queue. Could it be MintVine needs to find new survey partners? Not sure how much longer I'll do this.

Original post in June---I had almost identical frustrations and experiences as Natalie about a month ago. Cash out was disabled, I was not receiving many surveys when I used to get 35 each day. I also was getting no responses to my questions. Finally after searching and locating "higher-ups" I sent a message to multiple individuals. Jargon involved something about a proxy server, was I not where I said I lived, maybe I should take surveys from a computer rather than a tablet. Was reinstated, then rebanned. What a nightmare. Finally got it squared away and was given a generous number of consolation points, but geeeesh, what I had to go through!

Up until a month ago, Mintvine would've received a five star review from me. Customer service was quick and very fair. My recent problems changed all that, though. I'll see how it goes in the next few weeks and write again.

The phone number Mintvine lists is wrong. It takes you to a recording from State Farm insurance. Needs to be changed or deleted.
