How can I join Mint Surveys and be part of the research Panel?

Registration to our panel is by invitation only. This is in order to maintain a completely random and representative sample. This means that you cannot choose to register without our primary invitation.

Mint Surveys membership is only available to residents of Australia and New Zealand

How does it all work?

Mint Surveys are a team of online research specialists. Our clients come to us to collect feedback and opinions from consumers across Australia, some of the fees we charge them are passed directly on to you in the form of $AU rewards, through the Mint Surveys platform.

We will send survey invitations direct to your inbox (alternatively you can login to your account and view surveys that are available to you). Each invitation will specify the $AU reward that you can earn.

Once each survey is complete, your Mint Surveys account will be credited with the $AU reward. Once your balance reaches $20 you are able to redeem. We will send you your $AU rewards within 28 days of your claim.
