Total Score: 6.2/10
GradeMiners is quite a fun name, isn’t it? The website gives out an impression of reliability and professionalism. However, my high hopes were ruined by the final result – I checked the paper via Copyscape and it turned out it was 15% plagiarized. That’s not a big percentage, but it would be devastating for a student who would submit such a paper. But, please, read the following Grademiners.com review up to the end – perhaps you will find out other important facts about the service.
Online Reputation of GradeMiners
The website features tons of text that most students wouldn’t read, so I think it would be better for the service to get rid of some unnecessary paragraphs. As far as the online reputation is concerned, the Facebook community has a single fan. One! That’s pretty sad.
Services and Guarantees
There is no separate page with a clear list of services. You have to scroll to the bottom of the GradeMiners homepage to find out that the company offers the following products: assignment, dissertation, homework, coursework, case study, term paper, thesis proposal and essays for sale.
When I clicked the I’m ready to order button, I was taken to a detailed order form for new customers. Here, I could choose from a larger list of services, which also included paraphrasing. Such service is pretty suspicious for a website that’s supposed to hire high-level writers who offer unique work. I predicted the outcome at this point.
Prices and Discounts
The prices seem reasonable. They are categorized in five levels: high school, college, undergraduate, Master and PhD. The quotes per page for an essay range from $11.30 (for high-school level with deadline of 20 days) to $44.95 per page (for PhD level with a deadline of 3 hours).
The discount for first orders is 15% from the full price. If you go back for more orders, you become part of a bonus system that’s more complicated than necessary.
Quality of Services
My essay was full of fillers, just as the GradeMiners website is. The arguments that seemed decent were the ones that were plagiarized. I was disappointed with the fact that Copyscape recognized 15% of the paper as plagiarism. I believe that the writers were ESL speakers, since there were few mistakes an American writer wouldn’t make. I gave another chance to the company. I ordered another paper since the price was low, but the quality was still below average and it had about 12% plagiarism.
The live chat works well. The representatives are online most of the time and they answer the messages without delays. However, they weren’t able to help me get my money back, since the company did not take my complaints into consideration.
Nonexistent. There is tons of useless content at the website, but no blog or free tips. I would suggest the company to focus less on fillers and more on useful content that students would like to read.
In conclusion for this review, the company is not entirely bad. My papers were flawed, but still fun… until I realized the best parts of them were plagiarized. Have you ordered essays from GradeMiners? I would love to hear your opinion.

If I could give zero stars, it would be zero. This place is a complete scam. I placed my order for an essay. I requested 12 hour turnaround. As soon as I got an elusive message in their "instant messaging" service that said,"TinaPlease be informed that we have received the payment for your order 2002847.As we need to double check some details with you over the phone please tell us when it is convenient for you to receive a call or get back to us as soon as possible, otherwise, your order will be set ON HOLDIn case of any questions please feel free to contact us 24/7.grademiners.com"Had I not seen it or been notified otherwise, I would have missed the deadline leaving them to keep my money without providing service. Once I did see it I called them. I was transferred around & until I was connected with their customer service shift lead to "verify my billing information", even though I used PayPal. No need to verify billing information as it is directly paid via PayPal. When I questioned why she need to verify, I was told, "In case your information was stolen." There is no reason to verify payment information that has been already provided. I questioned her intentions & then she backed up to say that she was confused, the information didn't match. I told her to issue my refund immediately, she told me she couldn't. Luckily I used PayPal and have reported them. This is a scam and they were trying to garner personal information from me, in addition to attempting to take my money without providing product. Their customer service department is uneducated & combative. This speaks volumes to me about the kind of product I would have (or not as it would have been) received.1-888-964-0159
I cannot say enough how great of a job they did. It is like they were taking thoughts out of my head to complete the assignment!!
LOL. I thought it is not possible to write worse as do I. You did it for my money. Thanks a lot.
Well done, impressed by following instruction and assistance.
always before time never late
love working with this service they make me confident
Nice team to order an essay. Quality and deadlines are ok. They need to do something with communication.
Ordered an essay for my son when he was too busy training for his music which got him a scholarship. Looked fine to me, but he said he would have done it better.
I was initially skeptical, but the result impressed me. I lacked time to write a decent essay, so I turned to Grademiners for help. What can I say, you nailed it.
Arrrr! Who else faced the same issues as I? How can the do so many grammar mistakes in three page essay on genetics? I can even write better!
