Survey problems again.

February 19, 2020 by John from United States

This site has changed so much & is heading down the toilet. This use to be my favorite survey site but with so many changes down I am hardly making enough points in even 1 month to do a payout. Since 2-4-20 I have not been able to do any morning TV studies listed for 35 points & you're offering less surveys for less points with no explanation. You use to be a top 10 site but now ranked at 130. Branded Surveys needs to return to the Mint Vine ways & it also needs a major reboot.

Hello John,

We're sorry to hear that your experience has not been the best. You're right, we did make some changes. Our members now get a percentage payout based on their involvement with surveys!

We also increased our leaderboard frequency payout and the frequency of random prize payout.

If you are experiencing a specific issue with TV surveys, please reach out to us directly so that we can assist you.
info stealing

February 17, 2020 by mark from United States

Branded surveys will take information and research for 10-15 questions and then disqualify you. Totally bogus. The site appears to be designed to allow you to answer surveys and get points for a period of time and then continually disqualify you prior to the cash in point. In addition they will bait and switch you with potential survey emails.

Branded Surveys responded to this review on February 21, 2020

Hi Mark,

It looks like you are referring to our partners demographic questions. At the beginning of most surveys, our partners ask demographic questions to ensure that you are the right fit for their survey. We're sorry about any frustrations!

Additionally, once we deem that you are not qualified for a survey, or a survey fills up - you will be routed to the next possible match. Thank you!
no credit for completed surveys.

February 15, 2020 by JANA from United States

I used the report survey issue and reported 13 surveys that were completed but redirected back and stated i didnt qualify. Well they were rejected and there reason was i stated the same reason for each survey. Thats ridiculous. There is no other way to report it but to state that i completed it and it redirected back and stated i didnt qualify. I have reported this on other surveys before like it and they were never rejected. Nobody will get back with me from customer service, they never do. I completed these surveys and i should get the points. So it would be nice for somebody from branded surveys to look into this and correct it. The surveys were reported the week of 2/10/2020.

Hello Jana,

Thank you for taking the time to explain what had happened. Initially it looks the reported surveys had the same verbiage in each report text box.
We encourage you to be as accurate as possible when reporting a survey issue, so we can ensure we are doing our due diligence and reviewing each individual issue. We apologize if this was not communicated properly to you!

We are taking another look at these, and you should see a credit shortly - Thank you!

Going on my third reward

February 10, 2020 by David from Canada

I've been a member of branded surveys for the past two months and I'm about to redeem for the third time. What I can say about Branded is they are not the best paying panels, but the leaderboard is funny, though I don't expect to EVER make It in the top 50!
