I got an email from Mintel offering to pay my internet bill as long as I had service through a specific company, which I do. I filled out a quick survey, and figured I wouldn't hear anything back. I just got an email saying all I have to do is submit my bill, and they will pay for a portion of it. This sounds awesome! So of course I have to ask...is this too good to be true? Thoughts?
They will pay you if you sign up for the whole time period of the project and submit your bill (or bills) to them every month as indicated if you are accepted into the program.
They pay by direct deposit and you can use the money however you wish.
I have been participating in a similar program for them since last year.
Mintel is one of the best companies out there. The one and only time they had some assignments where the fee was not commensurate with the work I did let them know I would be completing a few already assigned, but after that no more. When the scheduler needed a chunk of them done in a relatively short period of time, she not only bumped the fee she made it retroactive for my completed shops. They are responsive and will always make things right.

So is this an invite only? Or is it on the job board... Do you have to change your internet provider or type of service? Or is it just if you are already a customer you get a portion paid for the bill submission. Obiously you can't say which internet provider it is, but I'm looking for it on Mintel and not seeing it
Where are we going... and why are we in a hand basket?
Mintel is fantastic. They have quickly risen to my favorite MSC this year. I have mad quite a bit of cash sitting on my ass making phone calls for them or participating in a blog. I have just been accepted to their 12 month bill assignment and they are paying me an extra 10 to send a few months back bills to them. Easy to work with, good communication. Now if I could just find their 2 sisters and brother I could retire from all the other MSPS. Here's to you MINTEL.
Lexxycon I believe they sent a email with a survey to qualify you for the study.
Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
I filled out the survey and received the notice that I was accepted. Like you say, easy work for the pay. When you figure up the fee for a year, it comes to $144. Looks better that way!
Actually, $154 because they pay $10 for the first survey (which includes your four most recent bills to be uploaded).
It's the easiest work for $12 that I think I've come across. I have my internet-provider bill set up to be paid automatically, so the only time consuming thing for me was to remember my login for that website :p
I have done a few things for Mintel, and enjoyed it. I am currently on board for the 12 month bills assignment. I only wish I could find more work through them. I read where there are blogging assignments...being internet based, it seems anyone from anywhere could get these. I haven't seen anything in a long while and my search perimeter is 80 miles...
I am registered with Mintel but somehow lost the log in page. There is no link at all on their main page - anybody know what it is?
I see that the menu audits that they used to have for $20 are now being offered by another company at $8 (not the drive up kind either - the kind where you have to get a hard copy menu and photograph it - presumably undercover ... )
