"Not worth the hassle"
June 21, 2017 by Luise from United States

This site was fun at first, but I'm quickly growing frustrated. First off, this site is not mobile friendly. Half the surveys are not devised for mobile devices - why can't they tell you that in the survey invitation, so you can just skip it? Of all the surveys I'm invited to, I complete maybe 10 percent; of those, I actually get credit for half, if I'm lucky. Filling out the report forms does no good - you get a minuscule percentage of the points promised for completion. For instance, I completed a 300-point survey, but didn't get credit. I had taken a screen shot of the "thanks you've completed the survey"" page, and sent it along with my report. I was awarded 5 points. Woo-hoo. Customer service is non-existent. It may be time to collect my payout and move on.

"Pay problems"
June 17, 2017 by Tara from United States

I have not received my pay out and it has been over a month and it is my first pay out. I have left two emails for "customer service" and have not received one response. It says it has been processed yet I haven't received it or a response from customer service as to what they're doing about it. There is no number to talk to a human being. The one listed about takes you to State Farm. I am not pleased at all and I never leave reviews. And since I left my message I received the general email updated we all get so I know they are emailing just ignoring my request!

Payments take 3-5 business days to process and, depending on your payment method, may have gone to your spam folder. Please email info@mintvine.com so we can investigate and thank you for your feedback.

"Looks Good At First But..."
June 08, 2017 by Maria from Canada

When I first signed up with MintVine I was happy because I had been searching for another survey panel to earn a little with for a while now and was not successful in my search. It seems great at first, a little deceiving - in my opinion, but after you cash out the first time, you'll notice way less opportunities to none. You'll stop getting surveys and they will more than likely keep any points you earn 'pending' after you've already cashed out once. This, to me, is just bogus. I would say I'm disappointed but also not surprised since many survey panels seem to be flawed this way. It's really difficult to find a fair one that is authentic or consistent. Don't waste your time with MintVine and look elsewhere.

Update: Over a month later and nothing has changed (not a surprise at all of course). I contacted support about not receiving any surveys for a while now and that I would like to cash out what I have and be done with them. The only thing they responded was to ask for the e-mail address associated with the account and after that, never heard back from them.

Second update: I've e-mailed them 3-4 times now, the two times was after they replied to my review on here and they have not responded to any. They're so full of it, they respond to the negative reviews only to make them appear as if they're considerate and legitimate. STAY AWAY!! Horrible panel and even worse customer service if you want to call it that. They're a joke.

"Used to be good, but...."
June 02, 2017 by Jenni from United States

This used to be a great site, but not anymore. I was a member for about 6 months, and I've been paid about $300. They used to have a lot of surveys, but that all changed in mid-May. Something happened where there were hardly any surveys, and the ones that appeared would reach quota very quickly. I used to be able to complete 6-10 surveys each day, but now I can hardly get 1 or 2. I finally got an available survey, then finished it only to be disqualified for rushing through. Well, OF COURSE I rushed through--I had to finish before the quota was filled. I answered all the security questions correctly, and was still DQ. So I'm damned if I do, and damned if I don't. That was the last straw, so I cancelled my account.

I guess the surveys go to other survey companies first, then go to Mintvine only after they're almost full. How else can they can be over quota within a few seconds after becoming available on Mintvine?

Like I said, they'll pay you--they're not a scam, but there aren't enough surveys anymore to get the $10 needed for payout. At this point, I don't know why they're accepting new members. There aren't even enough surveys for the old members.
You can still earn 5 points/day by doing the daily poll, and eventually you'll reach payout.

""Survey Quota Met"..."
May 26, 2017 by Margaret from United States

I have been doing Mintvine for over a year, and up until the last month, I loved them. However, the past month, every single survey I complete, tells me I've finished the survey, then once redirected back to Mintvine, a message pops up saying the survey quota has been met, and I receive no points. Every time I have complained to them, they have given me the points. The problem is I don't want to spend ten minutes, trying to get help, every time I finish a survey. There are far too many better survey sites, you don't have to worry about getting your points from. I would recommend some place else.
