Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 36 reviews Review It is the home of MintVine, a new market research company who says they give people a “fun and easy way” to make real money by earning points through simply “sharing your opinion.”

Signing up to work with is completely free and only requires an active email address which they will use to send you a confirmation email to set up your account.

In order to finalize your account setup, you simply need to fill out a personal questionnaire consisting of eight questions, but which will better help you receive surveys that you will qualify for. MintVine promises that the information provided in this questionnaire will not be sold for advertising purposes.

How It Works

Market research is an important aspect for companies looking to increase sales by targeting their products to a specific audience and demographic, which is essentially every company that makes money through sales.

Whenever you complete a survey, try a product and create a review, or complete an offer, you will be given a certain number of points. These points can eventually be converted into cash payments.

You will need a minimum of 1000 points to cash out your account – 1000 points is equal to $10. It takes up to two weeks for points to post to your account after you have earned them, but members with PayPal account can withdraw money without delay after the points have been posted.

Is Legit?

MintVine members can sign up for free, which is important because companies should never charge people for the opportunity to take surveys. In addition, their payout minimum of $10 is very reasonable – many companies which pay their members cash have payouts closer to $20 or $25.

Also, MintVine warns their members that while completing offers from companies does offer a high number of points, these offers can sometimes be tricky and may require a credit card number which will be charged if you do not closely follow the rules of the offer.

As long as is reliable when it comes to honoring member payouts, it seems as though they may be a fair company to work with. However, when working with any market research company you will want to keep track of all the work you do for this website, so that you can contact customer service if there is ever an issue with you receiving credit for your work.

    This company makes it impossible to receive any money you’ve earned, nothing works and every single point you earn by doing a “leading” survey you have to fight for twice as long as the survey took. Even then you are out of luck.
    As for the points that they used to give for survey rejection is not usually the case. You can be rejected 18 times because making even 1 rejection point.

    This recently happened to me – I answered over 30 questions and then the survey said I didn’t qualify, so I went to my survey history and clicked “report issue” and selected “late disqualification” and bam. Next day got my points.

    TD;DR: if this happens it’s not mintvine’s doing and if you report it there’s a good chance of getting those points back

    Mintvine is a scam. I have funneled multiple hours of my time and loads of personal information into this site and the surveys and all I get in return are disqualifications from the surveys. There are much better ways to spend your time and make some spare cash. It isn’t worth putting in the time and providing the information if you aren’t going to receive anything in return. I highly discourage anyone from using Mintvine and protect themselves by not giving their personal information away for no reason whatsoever.

    I joined mintvine a week ago. They ask me lots of my information and with one nighmare exception, never ever ever qualify me for a survey. I’ve been doing surveys on Vindale for months. One of their Portals “YourSurveys” also uses Mintvine. After months of surveys on Vindale I built up my status to “GOOD” with 255 points. When Mintvine sent me to the YourSurveys site it dropped my score down to 100 points. Then it asked my address. I gave it to them and they came back and said it was a bogus address and dropped my points to 90 with a status of “Warning”. I went back to Vindale and discovered my status has been dropped on all portals. I have written many complaints and they have never responded. With the status of “Warning” it has greatly decreased my ability to earn rewards. They are a complete scam. Do not go near them.

    I’ve used MintVine for less than a year and I’ve already earned $30 in gift cards; it’s easy to use, a lot of the surveys are fun and you get free gift cards of your choice, I love using it. So long as you answer the surveys completely and do them in the amount of time set, you stand a good chance of getting paid, and if you don’t qualify for the surveys, they’re kind enough to give you 5 points just for taking it. It’s a fun and easy way to earn a little extra money.

    There is something not quite legitimate about this company. I have accumulated over 9000 points and selected my pay out preference which is what they tell you to do in order to redeem points. The redeem button is nowhere to be found when I log on to my account. I have queried the help desk about this and have never received a response. There is definitely something fishy going on with them. Also, used to receive multiple surveys a day and it has been weeks since I’ve gotten one. The only thing available are the daily 5 point polls. I’ve never been told I could only accumulate a certain number of points before I had to cash out and have just been letting them accumulate for a bigger payout. Buyer beware of this company!

    I do not recommend Mint Vine. You will be completing surveys for no money at all.

    Like many others, I have completed many surveys for no credit. You answer 20 or 25 questions, go all the way through to the end to be screened out. Also, you can answer 6 or 7 screens in a row (5 – 10 questions each) before getting a survey only to be disqualified on the 1st or 2nd question. The screening system does not work well at all.

    I have cashed out once and was ready to cash out again, but they have locked my account.

    Up until today, when I emailed Mint Vine to let them know I was not credited, they were fast respond and credit my account. But yesterday I completed a survey and instead of being credited, was directed to a Mint Vine screen to verify my mobile. Got the code on my phone, but nowhere to input it, so I emailed Mint Vine. The response today was I have to verify my mobile. No mention of the survey I completed.

    The code has long since expired and Mint Vine will not send it again. I cannot get to my account to cash out. I have tried multiple times and have contacted Mint Vine again.

    I am seriously pissed off that I cannot get the money on my account that I earned. Don’t waste your time on this one. They will rip you off, too.

    I signed up, answered the qualifying questions and then was directed to a survey. I apparently did not qualify for the first one but was accepted for the second which involved the banking industry. It was a very long survey and took me at least 40 minutes to complete. At the end the site showed that I was not qualified.
    A complete waste of my time and how do I know that my survey was not used by Mintvines clients.

    I have not had many issues at all with Mintvine. If there is ever a problem with the system not crediting any points I have always found if i e-mail Mintvine they straighten the problem out. If you don’t qualify for a survey you many times get credited 5 points which adds up or even an occassional 30 points. . This is certainly better than most companies which give you nothing if you don’t qualify. I agree I have never made that much money with them but I haven’t made much money either with other survey companies. YouGov, the survey company that has surveys about political issues takes forevor to make any money from though their surveys are interesting. . So Mintvine is better. I still give Mintvine a high rating, it is better than most survey companies and their cashout quota is only $10.00 compared to #30.00 or even $50.00 with some survey companies. Mintvine’s surveys don’t work sometimes but I am sure they are not the only ones with this problem.

    After a year of using MintVine and others, I can honestly say that MintVine is questionable at best. They manage to get surveys from some pretty big companies, including Disney doing show testing, which I will miss. But I feel very strongly that more often than not, MintVine disqualifies users on the very last screen of a survey, thereby giving you only 5 points while probably taking full payment from the company. Their constant barrage of emails has no relation to the actual availability of a survey. Screening questions link to more and more (and repetitive) screening questions, often from various other survey companies (probably all co-owned). Often part-way through a survey it will bump you back to screening questions with no indication that you got bumped out (probably to you hooked). Surveys are often ‘broken’, ending with an error message and no points given. I have taken many surveys that never appear in my points history. Complaining to Customer Service accomplishes nothing, because the email link they ask for is unrelated to the survey you took, and if they are kind enough to credit you it will only be for 5 points. It has taken a year to get to 980 points, 20 points away from a measly $10 payout, and in the last week literally every survey has failed to complete. I believe MintVine is a scam.

    I gave Mint Vine a pretty high rating until about 2 days ago. I noticed I had lot of pending surveys and I decided to see if they was paying me for my pending surveys. I sent them a E-mail an told them they need to credit 165 points to my account.

    The next day I did not get any surveys from them and I thought that was unusual since I use to get a lot of surveys from them and the points I requested I have NOT received them.

    The company was good about paying me but I don’t know if I want to stick with them if I have to keep a record of every survey I take.

    They have made me question their honesty, and because of this I think I have got to let them go.

    Thanks for listening.

    Waste of time. Do Not Bother. I must receive 20 surveys a day to take and all of them are already closed even though I clicked on the email literally the second it came in. Trying to accrue points for a pay out is mission impossible. Right now their website is down, at least I think it is. Since last night I’ve received over twenty surveys and yet when I try to access the survey I’m told: An Internal Error as Occurred. Whatever that means. In the meantime can’t take any surveys and can’t contact anyone. There is something not quite right about this company. I would doubt the validity of any money or Amazon Certificates I might receive if I could accrue points.

    I just joined Mintvine on August 2nd, 2015. I already have 1,700 points in my account. Was pretty easy in my opinion to get to this point and I still qualify for plenty. I will say I’m not a fan of the time it takes for my completed surveys to move from Pending to Approved (looks like a few weeks?). Doesn’t seem to make sense why that is, since so many other sites I’ve used are processed immediately or within 1-2 days later. For that reason I am giving it a fair rating.

    As someone else stated in these comments, the site is legit, but not as efficient in validating your response quickly.

    This site, for me, is mixed.
    On the one side: it’s REALLY easy for 2 score 5-pointers–you get 5 points even if you don’t qualify for 2 complete a survey and that’s more than MANY sites give. (some only give sweepstakes entries and I’m on like 6 sites at least)
    On the other side: Processing time is SO EFFING SLOOOOOOOW in comparison un2 many–on for many surveys I’ll get the amount credited within 15-30 mins–when I complete one–Mintvine, again, is SOOOO SLOOOOOW I’ve wondered if the programmers/techie crew is composed of college amateurs or computer-programmers-in-training.
    It shouldn’t take 2-3 days for a tech support person to get back un2 an email. Sorry. I DID get a fast response when that I posted un2 their Facebook page.
    I’m also concerned that they don’t have a physical mail address for contacting them.
    However: While they ARE slowpokes (my most recent paypal payment, which should have taken 48 hours, took almost 96 hours–aka four days rather than 2), but once I kvetched I got it and the payments DO show up.
    So: In sum: Reliable, but NOT efficient.

    I have been completing surveys with MintVine for over a year now and have never had problems with payments or getting points. Even if you don’t qualify for a survey, most of the time you will given 5 points still and most companies certainly do not offer points when you don’t qualify for a survey.

    Also, there are the daily polls and those points add up quickly. I am really surprised to read these complaints. Sometimes people rely on gigs designed to make a few extra bucks to pay their bills instead of getting a job, or building a business. I cash out on MintVine whenever I need a little gas money. I don’t expect to generate enough money to pay my bills.

    In some ways, Mintvine is better than others I’ve tried, but it’s been worse lately. The emails almost never have surveys that accept you, and Offers are bad. They’re pretty much wasted time. Most of them now, are just portals to “Your Survey” even though they’re not labeled as such.

    The majority of Offers pay you only with spam, NONE OF the promised points. Doesn’t matter whether they are low or high promises. I follow the rules very carefully. One example — the trip to Disney World: Not only did I sign up for several incentives there, but when I went back to that offer, it was no loner even listed. But I do have three new sources of spam now.

    Redemption was fast, the one time I cashed out. I got Amazon points within a couple hours. I just want to avoid the traps they call Offers. Might as well spend — expend — my time washing the car and have something to show for it.

    Mintvine is not right they have a lot of trouble with a glinch in their systems to where you won’t get paid.And also sometimes there are issues with the company websites that come through Mintvine. I told the person from Mintvine about it and he told me to send the link. I copy and paste the website and sent the link. And he said, I showed him proof on the Mintvine website, showing the score. And he is going to say comes to show that have credit with points when they did not. And I emailed him again. And he ignored it. He is rude and all they want to do is steal your money. I say anybody,if you are looking for a good site, don’t pick Mintvine, they are on their way going down. He still have not paid me for what he owes.

    Wow- I have done pretty well with Mintvine so you have my attention now and ill be on guard. I don’t take many surveys with them? but rather I look for those 1-2 a month where they send a focus group. You can tell immediately when the survey starts it mentions you will be paid for 1 hour focus/market study. The pay is usually bout $25-50 and I have done a few with them.

    Unfortunately most survey sites are not worth it anymore because you spend so much time trying NOT to get rejected. I only take the big payouts now and I turn the tables on them and I reject taking the smaller ones for fear of them wasting my time (and taking all my info for free).

    You have to just pick the good stuff from these sites.. 80% if garbage and 20% is quality- but its all hidden in there. This article might help a bit- regarding picking out the quality from each site. Id also strong recommend Amazon Turk if you like surveys.. its a ‘real’ part time job. Hope this helps..

    I’ve been on MintVine for a little while now.

    I will admit that it is not easy to get a good momentum going with this site. I have only done two of the offers and have focused on working with surveys. They don’t come around very often and it took a very long time of being constantly disqualified before I finally managed to actually qualify for, and finish, a survey. I signed up for their MintRoll browser add-on and use MintVine in Chrome, which is a browser I don’t use often so I don’t mind the add-on being in there. I have gotten more surveys and have qualified for more of them after using MintRoll.

    I completed my first cash out several months ago. After requesting it, the $10 was in my Paypal account within 72 hours. I cashed out another $13 a few months ago and, again, it was in my PayPal account within 72 hours. I am $1.50 away from another $10 cash out and am patiently waiting for another survey that I will qualify for to make that. In the meantime, I make sure to answer the daily poll for 5 points a day (just make sure you answer the poll questions 24 hours apart or you will not get credit).

    I use other sites like this and definitely wouldn’t rely on MintVine as my only source of online income as the surveys just don’t come around frequently enough for me. However, my experience with MintVine has, to date, been quite positive.

    Creating an account with them is easy, and they do have you fill in surveys and other polls. The surveys I did qualify and answer, would go on for 20 or 30 questions and then suddenly disqualify me. This could take from 15 to 20 minutes at a time. I would receive 5 points for my effort. I began to wonder if I was being disqualified so that it would take longer for the points to add up. When I finally got to 1000 points, I followed the instructions to redeem them on December 28, 2013. It took a couple of days to tell me (on the MintVine site) that the points were approved and awarded via Paypal. Since then, I have been checking my Paypal account, and nothing has been deposited. It is supposed to take 48 hours. I have also sent 4 emails asking for answers, via their contact link at the bottom of the page. I check everyday for a response, and nothing has happened. I receive their email prompts to come and participate in more survey’s so I know that my email is valid. Subsequently, I have deactivated my bank accounts in my Paypal just in case there is a fraud happening. I would rather be safe than sorry! All I know is that I have wasted a lot of time, answering questions for companies, and have never received the $10 that were promised. It is now January 21, 2014. Below I have cut and pasted their statement of policy and listed documentation on my account in MintVine.

    ** Please allow 48 hours after your withdrawal request to be approved – we must manually check each withdrawal request.

    After contacting MintVine several more times, and contacting someone from the Facebook page, I have finally received the $10. It only took 2 months.
