MintVine Surveys

Here is a fun survey site that pays called MintVine. I’ve been using this for a while now and I’m happy with the results. So here’s the skinny on Mintvine. You need 1000 points to receive $10. They have a lot of surveys to do and of course you won’t qualify for all of them. That being said, you WILL qualify for plenty. I have to admit that I get more surveys than I have time to do, but this means if you do all they give you, you can make a bit of money. Anyway, I think this is a good survey to add to your survey stream.

You can even set the number of surveys you want to receive daily sent to your inbox. I know it sounds tempting to say you want hundreds of surveys a day, but realistically you can only do so many. When I do my surveys sometimes I do just a few or sometimes I sit down and do as many as I can in one day. They will eventually run out of surveys for the day, but they have a daily survey which gives you 5 points per day. If you complete 10 in a row, you get 25 bonus points.

All in all, this is a good survey site and it does pay. I’m a bit analytical so I’ve made a spreadsheet for all my survey sites to keep track of my earnings. If I get a chance I’ll add a template sample for you. Here is my link if you want to try MintVine.
