Branded Surveys is an online surveys platform that offers users the opportunity to answer online surveys in exchange for rewards including cash and gift cards. Membership is available to those living in the USA, Canada and UK.

How Branded Surveys Works

branded surveys website

Branded Surveys provides its members the opportunity to participate in online surveys on its Go Branded website, in a wide variety of different topics in exchange for rewards. Formerly known as MintVine, in 2017, the panel completely redesigned their website and took on the new name, 'Branded Surveys'. Branded offers its members tons of different rewards options and issues gift cards within 48 hours of transactions being processed.

New Member Bonus

New members of Branded Surveys can get a $1.00 (100 point) joining bonus, simply create an account and take the profile survey. After completing the survey, 100 points will be instantly credited to your account. That's 10% of the points required for your first cash out! Registration is quick – use your social account or email to sign up. No promo code is required to take advantage of the bonus.

Payment and Rewards

Branded Surveys payment options

Earn a Payout in as Little as One Week!

Payouts on Branded Surveys range in value for surveys and can be as high as 300 points. If you are not the best fit for a survey, you will still be rewarded with points for answering even a couple of questions - compensating you for your time and inching you forward to your first payout, be it a cash payment, gift card, etc.

How to Redeem Points

When you complete a survey, you will be rewarded with points and your survey answers will be sent directly to Branded Survey’s market research clients. Once you have earned a minimum of 1000 approved points, a redemption button will become active in the "My Points" section of your account, allowing you to cash out your earnings.

Rewards

When you're ready to request a cash out from your Branded Surveys account, click the redemption button and choose from a wide variety of rewards:

  • PayPal cash payments
  • Branded Pay (USA only)
  • Amazon gift cards
  • Pre-paid virtual credit cards
  • Other gift cards including: eBay, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Chipotle, Airbnb, and more!

Branded Pay connects directly to your bank account, allowing you to get your hard earned cash even faster! Upon approval of your withdrawal (1-2 business days), a payout will post to your bank account within 24-48 hours (USA residents only).

Redemptions take approximately 1-2 business days to process, and all rewards are digital. Gift cards will be issued as e-gift cards, and cash payments will be sent electronically. A valid phone number may be required to cash out your rewards.

Promo Codes

Promo codes on Branded are available for users to input into their member accounts, and will credit accounts with free points. These promo codes are available via special contests and promotions, though they aren't available often.

Survey Taking Experience

Branded Surveys available surveys

Survey Lengths

The average survey on the platform takes 11 minutes to complete, but the estimated completion time will always be listed on survey invitations (which are e-mailed, or can also be found listed in your account).

Many surveys, as well as the platform itself, is posted on the gobranded domain name. Go Branded is the same as Branded Surveys - it's simply what the panel uses as a url.

Daily Polls

Log into your account daily to receive 5 points for taking the quick poll available on your Branded Surveys Dashboard. You may complete one poll every 24 hours.

Earn Extra Points

Local Deals are provided by businesses and offer additional opportunities to earn points with Branded Surveys. These opportunities are also listed in your Branded Surveys dashboard. The more points you earn, the more qualified you will be for additional opportunities.

How Much Points are Worth

Branded Surveys uses a very simple points conversion system. 1000 points = $10 and 100 points = $1. Therefore, each individual point is worth 1 cent, or $0.01.

Member's Tip! Answer questions as honestly as possible so the data collected is accurate and the surveys you qualifying for are relevant to you. This makes it much easier and enjoyable to complete surveys quicker.

MINT VINE/BRANDED RESEARCH

June 3, 2020 by Marie from United States

MINT VINE WHICH IS NOW BRANDED RESEARCH. WITH MANY OF THESE SURVEY SITES. IT TAKES WEEKS TO ACCUMULATE POINTS. BRANDED WILL SLOWLY TAKE POINTS OUT OF MY ACCOUNT. HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL TIMES, YET NO RESPONSE. I KEEP A LOG OF ALL SURVEY TAKEN AND POINTS. I WOULD NOT WASTE MY TIME WITH BRANDED RESEARCH TOO STRESSFUL TO ADD UP POINTS AND TAKE SURVEYS. BRANDED RESEARCH OWES ME MONEY. THIS COMPANY IS A WASTE OF TIME. A ONE STAR RATING IS TOO HIGH FOR BRANDED RESEARCH, IF I COULD WOULD RATE 1/2 STAR.

one of the better options for taking surveys, but still has its flaws

May 31, 2020 by rebecca from United States

I have tried about a dozen different websites that offer rewards for participating in surveys. I will say that Branded Surveys is one of the better options that I have come across thus far. I have been taking surveys through Branded Surveys practically non-stop, and I have yet to run out of surveys to take. The opportunities are seemingly endless. For the most part, the points that you are rewarded are fair in relation to the amount of time it takes to complete a survey. However, there are some cases in which the surveys will take MUCH LONGER than advertised and these surveys are often the ones that do not reward you with a fair amount of points. Another issue that I have run into is that I am sometimes offered surveys that I have already completed or surveys that I simply don't qualify for. This would be fine IF I didn't have to spend 5-10 minutes filling out questions, just to be told that I don't qualify. I have triple checked the accuracy of the information on my profile, so there's no reason that I should be receiving duplicate surveys or surveys that I don't qualify for. As you can imagine, this is extremely frustrating and a huge waste of time. Sometimes you are awarded a few points for trying to take the survey, even if you don't end up qualifying, but this is not true for every attempt.

Do the pros outweigh the cons? So far, yes, but there is still a lot of improvements that can be made.

Wow, so questionable

May 31, 2020 by george from United States

Good day

I am writing again because you still have not provided resolve, and i have provided you with HARD FACTS of my participation and completion of the screener.

To make matters worse, essentially the same thing is ongoing with survey 23629033 which was a screener which i completed in FULL, and IMMEDIATELY was allowed access in to a ZOOM conference at that time. This was on Tuesday the 26 of May about 3pm Central. Once again, i was told i sped through the screener, and credited ZERO POINTS, but after the screener was allowed to participate in the FOLLOW UP PROJECT IN FULL

This is two distinct cases in one week, where LOGIC is not factoring in to decisions at all. The object of a screener is to get information for the FOLLOW UP PROJECT. For both of these , your site hosted the screener for the client, and IS CHOOSING NOT TO PAY THE PROMISED INCENTIVE, saying i rushed through, BUT somehow was allowed to participate in full. So at this point, i was promised 200 points for each screener, for what would be 400 points total, and instead, have had to open up endless tickets, and thus far have been provided 50 points THIS IS SHAMEFUL

YOU NEED TO REACH OUT TO YOUR CLIENTS, for both of these, and see for yourself, that i participated IN FULL, hopefully that will serve to let you know, THAT THE TIMES ON THE SCREENERS WERE QUESTIONABLE at best

As are times on many surveys on your site, but in this case, it was LESS than ACTUAL, as opposed to the endless SUPPOSED 5 minute surveys on your site, that once accessed MAGICALLY double.

This is not even LOGIC this is FACT. Full participation in both follow up projects and i have been credited 50 points instead of the FULL 400

You need to make this proper, as i sped through nothing, and if my information was in question I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN INVITED TO BOTH FOLLOW UP STUDIES,

THESE ARE FACTS

RESPOND PLEASE


And please do not tell me to contact support as i have, I have communicated with Hanna and Amit and gotten ZERO resolve

Decent website

May 28, 2020 by Mateusz from United Kingdom

I never had any issue with this website. It's easy to use. It's a shame more often then less you are not good for the survey but still you get points and either vouchers or money depending what you choose. I'm happy with this website and I recommend it to all of my friends and family.

Hello Mateusz,

Thank you for the review! We're currently reviewing what we can do to improve our member experience when it comes to NQs. Thank you!
Fast.

May 28, 2020 by RICHARD from United States

Hey Richard,

It's true - surveys can fill up rather quickly! You should be routed to the next available match!
