How It Works

Signup is free, and simply by filling out your profile you get 200 points.

Each point is 1 cent; 100 points=$1.00.

Points are earned primarily by taking surveys. Points can also be earned by taking the daily poll (5 points), and sometimes by purchasing games or completing offers.

They also have something called Survey street & Survey funnel, where they try to match you up to surveys based on your previous behavior.

Surveys will be sent to you daily by email and they can also be accessed on their website. Surveys are limited, but you can also take surveys from their partners, such as peanut lab surveys.

Surveys vary in both how long they take and how much they pay; there is no set average.

Points may take two weeks to be accredited to your account. If disqualified before finishing a survey, 5 points will instantly be deposited in your account. Sometimes, that will be 30 points.

IMPORTANT: This only applies to regular surveys. Fennel Surveys and Survey Street Surveys DO NOT pay you if you are disqualified.

Once you reach 1000 points/$10, you may cash out at PayPal, Dwolla, or with aAmazon or Target gift cards. Payments take up to three business days.

Is Mintvine Worth It?

Well, obviously you won’t be able to make any real income from Mintvine.That we know; no survey site will do that for us. The question is, is Mintvine a good place to earn some extra spending cash?

Well, there are many things to look out for when choosing a paid surveys site, including how much they pay, the  length of the surveys, the minimum payout requirement, how often you get disqualified, etc.

When analyzing Mintvine, I have discovered a couple of things, some very good, and some not so much.

On the one hand, surveys at Mintvine do not always pay a lot. Sometimes they do, but other times they can be much better. Also, it’s not entirely very easy to qualify. Many times, there are no surveys available.

But I still like Mintvine. Why?For two reasons: First, they have a low payout of $10.But that’s not all.

The main reason I like it  is because you get paid even if you get disqualified from a survey. That’s a big plus for ANY survey site, and not just because so few survey sites do it.

One of the biggest complaints people have about survey sites is the feeling of wasted time, the utter FRUSTRATION of starting one survey after another only to get disqualified again and again and AGAIN.

BUT, if you get paid even if you get disqualified, even if it’s just 5 cents, you:

·A: Don’t feel like you wasted your time.

Even if you get disqualified 5 times in a row in 5-10 minutes, you get 25 cents, which might very well be how much you would have made taking a survey in that same amount of time. Sometimes, they will give you 30 cents upon getting disqualified.

·B: You are secure in the knowledge that eventually you WILL reach the $10 mark, no matter what.You won’t feel that pressured.

 

Pros Vs Cons

+Pro: Get 5, and sometimes 30 cents if disqualified.

+Pro: Low payout of $10.

-Con: Not always easy to qualify.

-Con: Takes time for points to be credited to your account after completing surveys.

-Con: Not all surveys pay very well.

So, Is Mintvine Legit? Can It Really Be True?

Mintvine is not a bad survey site to make some extra money in your free time.Whether you qualify for surveys or not, you’ll certainly earn some money.

On the other hand, I can’t really say that this is worth your time.That’s simple because taking surveys will never bring you any real income. But sure, Mintvine can work as something to do if you are bored, and you earn a small amount on the side. The daily poll is also fun.

    Thanks for the great info. You mention that affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. How long would you say it takes to get up and running and start earning a steady income? Also, how many hours per day/week would you say are required to do so?

    Thanks!

      Oh, I would say give affiliate marketing a year. A few hours (5, for example) a week would sound right — maybe every Sunday work on it.

      The point is that when you are successful, you will be earning money from your existing websites — it’s all passive income, which means that you can work less than by a regular job.

    This sounds like a great way to earn a little extra money. I must admit, I have never heard of Mintvine before, As you say with all of these things, you can’t make a full time income, but take it for what it is and you can earn a little extra.

    It sounds like it is worth a look.

    By the way, love your site. I love the name.

      Oh, I love the name too 🙂

      You can’t make real money at Mintvine — but ten dollars or so a month sounds possible.

    Mintvine is not that bad and like the fact that they have a low payout threshold of $10. Most other survey panels that I know off have a minimum threshold of $50 which a bit over the top.

    Online surveys are just a waste of time for me because you cannot really scale your income to where you want to.

      Yes Viljoen,

      I fully agree with you.

    Answering the question, is Mintvine legit was helpful to me. Even just knowing that survey taking is potentially legit was helpful.

    A while back I was doing surveys and other activities to earn fractions of bitcoins. Over a few months i had acquired about 3/4 of a bitcoin which at the time was worth about $5. I finally got bored with that until one day I noticed that the price of a bitcoin had skyrocketed.

    Story aside I could never really tell what was actually getting me the small amount of income. It seemed like occasionally I was getting something from a survey, but it was definitely not a sure thing.

    Thanks for sharing, maybe if I get tired of writing for my various websites Ill start in on surveys. Not thinking that’s likely since its going so well.

      Actually, I don’t recommend online surveys. I have found that Mintvine is more or less okay, since you get something even if disqualified, but they also don’t have many surveys available. Here’s morewhy I don’t recommend online surveys in general.

    Thanks for this review on Mintvine. I have tried them and it seemed all they did was mess me around and send me all over the place to other websites to sign up for things.
    Not only that but straight after signing up with them I started getting spammed big time on my mobile phone and the email address I signed up with.
    Maybe they are not a scam but I don’t feel they are that honest. What is Mintvine really doing? Seems to me they cash out getting you to give over your personal details to other websites!
    I never earned a thing from them, just got headaches and irritation!
    Hope everyone else has better luck with them.

      I’m sorry to hear about your bad experience with mintvine.

      Yes, you do get a lot of email about survey opportunties. (I personally have a separate email address for all these types of things.) But I’ve never gotten any calls from them. Maybe you meant your gmail app.

      Remember, there are 3 parts to Mintvine:

      A:Regular surveys. These, abd only, these, I recommend, as only these will pay you if disqualified. The daily poll is also fine.

      B:Special Surveys, meaning Survey Street and Fennel Surveys. These DO NOT pay you if disqualified.

      C:Offers, which are basically worthless, as you said. You get sent to all types of websites.

      Good Luck!

    I have not heard if this particular survey site. I do like that it pays you even if disqualified. I have tried the survey sites and it is very irritating to spend time going through a survey to be “disqualified”, sent to another, and disqualified again. This is a good option for extra spending money. I should require myself to do it to earn money for the expensive coffees I like to buy!

      Thank you. It truly is nice that they pay you even if disqualified. But ob the other hand, it’s not always THAT easy to qualify, so although you aren’t wasting your time, it’ll take longer to reach that $10 mark (there isn’t unlimited surveys availible). And that means less coffee for you!

      It does seem like it’s not one of the more famous survey sites out there. But it’s not bad. Better then many more famous ones!
