I’ve been looking for easy ways to make extra money that fit in around baby duties. After all one can only do so much cost-cutting. As an advocate for living your best life I’m a big believer in finding ways to fund you goals/dreams. Whilst surveys won’t make you rich, but they do offer a flexible way to make money, so here is my review of the survey site MintVine.

How to Make Money on MintVine

Complete your profile – You can get 250 points just for completing your profile. As your profile is used to match you to survey opportunities it’s great that MintVine give you points for something you’d have to do anyway.

Daily Poll – an easy 5 points every day for answering one question. Whilst this won’t make you a millionaire, complete 10 in a row and you will earn 25 bonus points! Very little effort is required for this, so it’s an easy win.

Complete Surveys – Numerous surveys are available each day, with email notifications given. You’ll need to be quick as they can fill up very quickly. The great thing with MintVine is, if you start a survey and are subsequently disqualified you can often earn points for your time.

Offers – A page full of offers to earn extra points from activities, such as downloading apps, playing games, watching videos, signing up for trials and more.


MintVine offers the option to get paid in cash (via PayPal) or gift cards for places such as Amazon, Starbucks, Debenhams, iTunes, Tesco and more. So it can be a nice option to bring in a little extra cash or subsidise your clothes, groceries, music or costly coffee purchases, using time that would have otherwise been spent doing nothing. Personally I would go for the cash.

With a payment threshold of $10.00 (1000 points) it’s one of the lowest.

Refer a Friend or Family Member

For every new friend or family member referred to MintVine, you will earn 15% of what they make on all Surveys and Offers. You will also earn 50 points when they complete their first survey!

How’s that for a referral reward?! Not only a one-off bonus, but an on-going 15% of points! I have to admit that’s pretty appealing.

So to those of you with lots of friends and family, get them signed up!

How to Make the Most out of MintVine

Take the Daily Poll – an easy 5 points every day, with the opportunity to earn bonus points!

Look out for survey notifications in your emails. You’ll need to be quick as they can fill up very quickly.

Make use of the survey funnel. You will need to answer a few questions and then you’ll be presented with all currently available surveys that you qualify for.

If you a stuck for time hit the skip button on a lengthy survey. There are often more surveys available and they may be shorter in length AND offer more points.

My Final Thoughts

I love that MintVine gives users opportunities to earn every day. From my own experience I haven’t been short of surveys to complete.

The Daily Poll is such a quick and easy way to add to your points, even if you don’t feel like doing surveys that day.

Lastly I have been able to do surveys whether on my laptop or smartphone. This is pretty handy when you’re out and about and get a spare few minutes, which is increasingly the case as summer weather kicks in.
