I'm a member of Mindmover as well as other survey sites. The only one I feel is a waste of time is Gratis Points and I've cancelled that. Mindmover is very good and I love the discussion group. I've requested money twice, each time via Paypal and have not had to wait the time they say it takes to get paid. Very pleased with Mindmover and if you have the time and the inclination to complete the surveys, then I think it's money for nothing. As for getting to the end of the survey and not being accepted, complain. You explain to them where you got and you'll be re-imbursed for your time.
Mindmover is a survey site that gives you the opportunity to make a bit of extra cash. When I first started writing reviews and doing surveys Mindmover was a site that I automatically signed up to under the advice of Money saving expert.
The site is brightly coloured and quite different to the other sites out there. The homepage looks like a book with your personally information (name, points) on the right and a list of direct links on the left (mini polls, your account).
-Mini polls - This option gives you the opportunity to ask a question to all the other Mindmover panellists. For example:
Matt from Bedford asks:
If the price was the same, would you rather watch a film in 2D or 3D?
Now if you're a student looking to ask a cross reference of people a question and get honest answers this is a great opportunity not to be missed. Or if your just interested in something it gives you the chance to find out a cross selection of people's opinions on a topic that interests you.
-Your points- This gives you a list of all the surveys that you have done and how many points you have been paid for each survey. This is a brilliant idea as I have found that on occasions I have finished surveys and not received payment, a quick email to the site usually gets this sorted quickly and payment is made accordingly.
-Your Profile- Like all survey sites you are entered into more surveys if you have completed your profile correctly. Mindmover has divided your profile into 6 sections - kids, food and drink, health, hobbies, general and media and technology. The site puts a green tick next to each section if it has been completed correctly.
The site sends you an email when there is a survey available for you to complete. You are paid in points for each survey you complete and the amount of points you receive is dependent on how long you send filling it in. The more time you take filling in the survey the more likely you are to get the maximum amount of points for each survey.
You can cash in your points pretty quickly. You are paid in either cash directly to your account or via paypal. I have recently cashed in all my points to get my first paypal payment. I was told this could take up to 30 days to go in to my account so bear this in mind if you need the extra money for something straight away. I will update this review on ease of payment once I receive my first paypal transfer, however I'm very happy with the process so far.
When I first signed up to this site I did not really see myself sticking it out. Surveys were few and far between and when I did finally start getting more surveys I wasn't always entitled to do them and so was signed out. However after a few months I had made £10 worth of points. I did debate calling an end to the site, cashing in my points and cutting my losses. However the next survey I completed achieved me 300 points and then the survey after that I got 150 points. My points soon started to creep up and so I kept with it.
After a year of completing surveys for mindmover I made £23 which I cashed in so that I can buy some bits off Ebay for my daughters nursery. I know that a year sounds like a long time but I do surveys for about 4 sites on a regular basis. Doing the Mindmover surveys along with my other site surveys didn't take much effort and to be honest it was a pleasant surprise to log into the site and realise that I had reached the £20 mark.
I would recommend this site to anyone that is willing to take the time to fill in surveys over a course of time to reach a nice payout at the end. It's a long winded process but if you have the time an patience its' worth it for the money at the end. The surveys are not difficult (usually about alcohol consumption and brand product consumption) so why not give it a try? The money will soon creep up.
Advantages: Easy to sign up and you get paid in cash. If you have an issue Mindmover will resolve it quickly
Disadvantages: None that i have experienced so far
Having just joined Mindmover and completed my first and lengthy survey - only to discover that I was disqulified for the 300 points at the end - right on the very last page. This I felt was terribly unjust especially after I had spent over an hour giving in my opinions - in fact I felt conned. I know that 300 points was not a millionaire's sum - but that does not detract from the fact that i did contribute with some effort.
This unjust prompted me to send an email (giving them my opinion) the next morning to Mindmover explaining to them the unsatisfactory situation and they responded within a couple of hours, acknowledged my email, apologising for the technical error and had immediately credited my account with the 300 points = £3.00
I have to say that their response and action is impressive, so this is one survey site that I will stick with for quite a while - as Mindmover has shown thus far that they do CARE about their panelists.
Summary: I would reccomend Mindmover to anyone who loves giving their opinion and get paid for doing so
I'm a member of nearly every survey site that there is on the internet, yet I'm still not a millionaire! After years of being a member of such sites I've discovered that there really is no "get rich online" scheme that actually works, the most you can hope for is earning a bit of extra pocket money through the use of such sites. The most recent site that I've joined is Mind Mover which I joined back in January this year. This site is quite new and was only set up back in 2009. They're really the same as a lot of other survey sites out there, they're a market research site which works directly for the brands we buy and they promise you that by sharing your views with them you can make things happen. In return for your effort and time they'll reward you by paying you every time you share your opinion.
The joining process is fairly straightforward and takes about six to seven minutes. You'll need to visit the homepage which can be found at www.mindmover.co.uk and follow the large joining link in the centre of the page. You'll be asked to enter some basic details including your name, your email address and your chosen password. You'll then be asked to complete a short survey where you're required to give your address, your date of birth, your marital status, etc. The whole time you're doing this there is a progress bar along the top of the screen which shows how far along you are. Once you've completed that you'll be sent an email confirming your membership and then a further email containing links to updating your profile, this can also be done by logging into the homepage using your details.
The Mind Mover homepage is quite bright in terms of colour and it's also quite visually attractive as there's not too much information. There's a menu on the left hand side and a login option where you'll need to enter your username and password. Once you've logged in you can see immediately at the top of the page how unredeemed points you have along with how much of your profile is currently completed. They suggest you complete all the profile surveys in order to maximise your chances of being sent surveys, the topics that these cover include health, hobbies and kids to name just a few. I've completed about half of mine and found that they vary in length; some will take you a minute while others can take about five to six minutes depending on your answers to the initial questions really.
Using the left hand side menu to navigate on the site you can access all the information that you'll need. The options include home, mini polls, discussions, prizes / rewards, winners, your points, your account, profile plus and log out. The only two I tend to use are your points and your account as these tell you all you'll need to know. Your points shows you the balance of your account along with all the surveys you've ever completed, once you reach the threshold payout you'll need to go to this page to redeem your rewards. Your account shows you all the information they hold about you on the site and you can also change any details that you need to. Apart from that I rarely look at anything else on the site to be honest, I did have a browse when I first joined but found that most of it was pointless.
So onto the surveys and the rewards... the most important bit of the review! I tend to receive a survey about once a week on average, sometimes more and sometimes less. Each survey invite will give you a little information about the survey including the remuneration you'll get for completing it and an estimate of the time that it will take to complete it. The remuneration can range from 25p to £2.00 in my experience so far and obviously you'll get the larger amounts for the longer surveys. The last survey I completed offered me 75p and took about five minutes to complete which didn't seem to bad, my second to last survey was the £2.00 one and that took about fifteen minutes. The surveys generally require you to tick boxes and have covered topics including food, make up and television.
Once you've reached £20.00 or 2000 points you can request to redeem a cheque, you are told that this may take up to fifty six days for delivery which does seem like quite a long time to me and as I'm only on £11.00 I've yet to try it. The other option is to have the money sent to you through Paypal where you'll again need £20.00 or 2000 points but this will only take up to thirty days so you won't have to wait quite as long. In conclusion this site won't make you a millionaire, I've been a member for just over two months now and in that time have accumulated £11.00 so you're looking at around £5.00 a month on average for what was probably about thirty to forty minutes work so it's quite a fair payment really. I'd recommend this site if you like doing surveys... but you won't get rich quick!
Thanks for reading.
Mindmover surveys generally are reasonable questions in an easy to follow format.
The estimated completion time is fairly accurate and mini polls can be completed for extra interest. Points are allotted for each survey completed and vary according to the length of the survey.
Surveys may be repeated from time to time and the same ones do seem to crop up.
When your points have reached a total of 2000 you are then eligible to request your long awaited payout. You have a choice of a payment to your PayPal account (inviting you to set up an account if you don't already have one) or a cheque.
Now here's the rub. It can take up to an amazing 56 days, yes that's right 56 DAYS for your cheque to be issued by Mindmover.
This could be merely a ploy on their part to get you accruing points again and therefore to keep you interested and building towards your next payment or just delaying tactics to avoid paying out promptly.
I can't think of any reason why it should take 56 days to issue a cheque maybe they need to do a survey to see why....
