The MintVine scam: I do not think so
Welcome to Survey Royal. Today I want to talk more on MintVine and whether it is a scam or not. With the hoard of online scams available you should always feel the water first before jumping into a disappointment. Now with that said let me start with saying that MintVine is a borederline scam.
There are several things to look at when you want to determine a scam and Mintvine is somewhat okay. I am also going to tell you what I liked and also what I did not like because I want to give you the most unbiased review possible.

MintVine review (Updated Version)
Mintvine also has a couple of ways to make money which is very good, because this makes them a bit more flexible. They work on a point system where 100 points will earn you $1. Most of the surveys range from 40 points upwards.
How to make money with MintVine.com
Now here is the important stuff regarding any survey panel online. With Mintvine there are several ways to make money and I will discuss each one below.
The surveys are probably the forefront of this panel. For each survey you complete, you will receive points. For each 100 points you will get $1 and most surveys range from 40 upwards. What I liked about it was that they tell you how many questions or minutes it takes to complete a survey.
This is a great feature that can help you to work out the most money you can make per hour with surveys. The surveys that pays the most is not always the best, but those that pays the most per hour. The survey routers are also a good feature, because it will guide you to the surveys that you will most probably qualify first.
We all know that it is important to qualify for a survey, sometimes the surveys can last longer than the intended time.
Offers are where you must download something, join a membership or take a free trail to earn money. If you know what you are doing then the offers will become one of your most favourite ways to make money. With offers you get 2 types. First you get the free offers that will pay you for a simple succession of actions that you take.
They do not pay that much, but they are free to do
The second type is the paid offers. They can come in the form of free trials, gambling, or joining a membership website. The beauty of paid offers is the amount of profit you can make. With this site I will recommend to take part in the trail offers.
You only need to pay $1 to earn points, but make sure that you earn more than 100 point otherwise you will end up in a loss. Most of the free trials will offer you 240 points as you can see from the above picture. If you pay $1 then you will get $2.4 which is a $1.4 profit. IMPORTANT!!!! Also remember to cancel you trial before it expires.
3) Local Deals
If there was a way to save more than 50% for something that you want to buy locally, then would you consider it as a form of making. If saving money was the same as making money, then this might just be for you. For this to work you must fill in the right demographic data about yourself because this is local.
Instead of paying 100% of the original price at a local store, you can buy it from MintVine. For some of the items you can get more than 50% off of the original price and you also get points in return. The points are not that much, but the true potential does not lie in the points, but rather the deals itself.
4) MVP or referral program
If you are someone that knows how to get referrals to survey sites, then this might be for you. For this specific panel, you will get 15% of what your referrals are making with the offers and surveys. It can be hard to get survey site referrals, but the best way to do this is to build your own website.
What I think about MintVine
This is not really a survey panel that I would recommend. You will not make millions by joining this panel, so to increase your chance you need to join as many as you possible can and then weed out those that does not pay you much.
This survey panel has a couple of OK features such as the low minimum payout threshold and PayPal. .
How to earn the most from survey panels?
It will be very rare for someone to quit your job by only doing surveys, but there are a couple of things that you can do that will drastically increase your survey earnings and for this you need a couple of pointers and training. For more information, you can take a look at my free training modules.
They are short and very easy to digest. Even if you are an experienced survey taker, you might learn a thing or two.
