Redeem problems

December 12, 2019 by Claudia from United States

This site rarely gives disqualification points. After weeks of trying surveys, I finally got the minimum to redeem. They have added a new security process that I wasn't aware of. You have to provide your cell phone number and they text you a verification number. I don't have a cell phone because I am hearing impaired and can't hear on one Therefore, I was unable to redeem my points. I feel I was discriminated against because of my disability.

UPDATE: FINALLY PAID AFTER 8 WEEKS THANKS TO HANNAH FOR HER HARD WORK IN GETTING MY PAYMENT- WORD OF CAUTION ANALYSE ME ARE INCREDIBLY HARD TO GET PAYMENTS OUT OF


IN THE LAST MONTH OR SO WHEN YOU SUBMIT A CLAIM AS YOU DID NOT GET PAID FOR A COMPLETED SURVEY WHEREAS 95% WERE GIVEN BEFORE NOW 95% ARE REJECTED FOR NO REASON AND YOU ARE NOT BEING PAID FOR YOUR TIME AND NOW THEY ARE SUDDENLY REJECTING SURVEYS FROM TWO MONTHS AGO WITH NO EXPLANATION AND IT IS CLEAR IT IS DELIBERATE POLICY - TOTALLY DISHONEST AND UNREPUTABLE AND AVOID THIS PANEL AT ALL COSTS THEY ARE NOT GENUINE AND JUST LET YOU COMPLETE SURVEY AFTER SURVEY THEN NOT GIVE POINTS AND ALSO REJECT MANY YOU HAVE COMPLETED MONTHS LATER- AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS

the latest trick is three times in the last two weeks i notice my points have gone down, by 300, 250 and 60 so i email get an email back saying they have been rejected- often months after survey so u ask for more details then i get email back eventually on 3 occasions saying they are giving the points back because there was a bug in partners survey- no apology no points given- so now you have to keep a running score of your points because this is obviously the latest tactic to take points from people- they used to be such a good panel now it feels like everything is a battle and you are treated as being in the wrong- not to mention the amount of 15-20 minute surveys i have done lately that at end get told no match and no points given- no other panel behaves in the way they seem to be more and more and it was such a good panel at one point- now its just leaving a sour taste in the mouth..

Extremely disappoint with customer service

December 11, 2019 by Jonathon from United Kingdom

Extremely disappointed. I have been a very active member of Branded Surveys since September. That is until my account was frozen last week because of a rejected survey (despite the fact that I provided a screenshot of the final page to show that I had completed it).

I have answered all surveys honestly and in good faith and have now been told by customer services that my account has a "large amount of surveys" that were rejected by their partners.

There are 17 surveys that have been rejected out of the 881 that I have completed. This gives me a success rate of 98%, which I would say is an account in good order.

I am only posting this because it has taken a week of sending several emails to receive two, generic unhelpful responses which do not explain the situation at all.

All I would say to you is if you do use Branded Surveys, try not to be too successful or they will find a way to close your account. Sad, really.

So bad right now

December 10, 2019 by Kara from United States

Never ever qualify anymore, haven't gotten a d's prolly in over a month. Points now missing. This is the last place I come to now.points are back but survey length is inane. 23 cents for 25 minutes! The survey length changes a lot after you get to the actual survey. It'll say 90 cents for 8 minutes but when you click it will say 90 cent for25 minutes. That's a big jump but most I assume think they might as well go ahead and give them a extra 17minutes cause we are.so glad to finally get a survey. Customer service has declined drastically. Dont answer my ticket correctly. Will give me a answer about something I didn't ask. This has happened multiple times yesterday. I asked why I have not been given any disqualifying points after attempting a survey. Its been.over a month and no dq points. 3 emails over this and was told to keep trying to do surveys. Payment is never late but if you only netting 5 cent off a daily poll then every week you're only making 35 cent, 1.40 cents a month so then you should be able to cash out for 10$ in 7 months. Almost the time it takes to have a baby... Tv studies from poprewads used to be reliable but the last 3 months I've tried it says its full or I don't qualify. How can you not qualify for inputting what you watched on tv? Go figure...How do all.these surveys come in and soon as they come in I click but magically this survey is no longer available. All day everyday. It was fun while it lasted but now it's.blasted

Hello Kara,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and we do apologize for any customer service issues you may have experiences. Unfortunately, some surveys do not offer disqualification points. Additionally, if a survey does not meet your needs, you are able to utilize the 'skip' survey feature.

Do not paid

December 6, 2019 by Yana from United States

This site does not pay. Do not waste your time. It is trash. Support does not answer.

I got this message:
Dear Branded Surveys Member,

Please note that all issues regarding withdrawal requests and point balances have now been resolved. We thank you for your patience and appreciate your dedicated membership!
Thank you,

But, the problem is not solved!!!!!
How can I get paid? I don’t even have this button.
