REDEEMING REWARDS

In November 2017, MintVine rebranded itself as Branded Surveys. The company has been running online surveys since 2012.

Branded Surveys is an online paid surveys site that offers users the opportunity to answer online surveys in exchange for rewards including cash and gift cards.

Membership is available to residents of the USA, Canada and UK.

How Branded Surveys Works

branded surveys website

Take Surveys, Earn Rewards

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 by simply creating an account and taking the profile survey. After completing the survey, 100 points will be instantly credited to your account. That's a whopping 20% of the points needed 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 or other reward.

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 500 approved points ($5.00 USD), a redemption button will become active in the "My Points" section of your account, allowing you to cash out your earnings and redeem your points.

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 (bank transfer - 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 verify your identity 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). Not only can you take interesting surveys, but daily poll opportunities are also offered.

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 in their 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. 500 points = $5 USD, so 100 points = $1. Therefore, each individual point is worth 1 cent, or $0.01. If you are located in Canada or the UK, you will receive your rewards in your local currency, in the USD equivalent.

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.

Great Survey Site

September 20, 2021 by Joanne from United States

Branded Survey site has definitely changed for the better. The surveys are very interesting & not redundant & points are easily earned. Redeeming is easy & delivered fast.

Genuinely Surprised

September 19, 2021 by Regina from United States

I've been taking surveys on Branded for a little under a month. I started on September 3rd and it's September 17th and I've already cashed out (I chose the amazon gift card) It's an electronic gift card. I'm Genuinely surprised on how many surveys I was able to finish and get credit for. I've done surveys in the past, from different sites and get so frustrated to not be able to get (qualify) credit after doing the survey for 10+ minutes. Now I don't qualify for every survey I take on Branded but I qualify and get credit for a huge amount. And to receive almost $30 in less than a month is amazing in my eyes. So far I am very pleased with Branded. People should leave reviews when things are great not just when things don't go the way we want. So again I am a happy survey taker here.

Lots of IT errors

September 19, 2021 by Jonathon from United States

Pays well and lots of surveys ..
They need to stop referring to IT issues as ‘not a match ‘ , as it’s usually a situation where the ‘partner ‘ has received the survey with all the personal info , etc , and is free to do whatever with. ‘Survey not a match ‘ implies the taker didn’t qualify and the ‘partner ‘ did not receive the information given in the survey . The ‘partner ‘ contact info is usually on the survey and you can simply email them and verify they received the info you ‘weren’t a match ‘ for . There needs to be some way to separate IT issues from actual times the survey wasn’t received by the ‘partner’ , as the former scenario is anything but ‘not a match’.
Also , they’ll actually tell you that if you get ‘not a match ‘ after completing a survey , it means your data and potentially personally identifiable info didn’t make it past branded surveys and on to the ‘partner’ , when that’s simply not the case .
Again , tons of IT issues that it seems could be avoided ... I know it happens , but wow it happens a lot . I’m sure they see it in their ‘report issues ‘ log every day .

Payouts

September 17, 2021 by Alyssa from Canada

Ive now done two payouts with branded surveys and they've gone so smoothly and decently fast. I definitely recommend.

Something happened recently

September 16, 2021 by george from United States

Something has happened recently with this site, from endlessly being redirected to CLOSED surveys to not being able to get responses for help tickets
August 7 completed survey SEPIA POOR LION, which asked me to allow access to web cam to be recorded, for a bonus of 6.50 I did all of this, opened a ticket on their HELP area, provided them a screenshot of the page speaking to the bonus, and still have not been credited OR provided ANY RESPONSE AT ALL

August 25, I completed survey YELLOW NEW BEETLE which shows up in their system as COMPLETED and the issue is where it shows up as completed in their database, I DID NOT GET PAID.

I would appreciate the 8.50 which i am owed and have done all which was asked of me

Please do not reply to this by saying CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY because i have already, NUMEROUS TIMES, and have gotten NO RESPONSE

Ending on a positive, this site does pay, when you cash out, and does so quickly

They are just failing in the HELP area

UPDATE: As of September 15, I still have not been paid the PROMISED incentive for the above study from August 7. I have sent the "help" team, a screenshot showing the time and date, which coincides with the day i completed the original study and clearly shows the PANEL POINTS PROMISED

Do not tell me to reach out to support, as i have and have been told that even with the survey being on their site, they have NO CONTROL over the PROMISED incentive being paid, which is irresponsible and unacceptable

I was promised 6.50 for allowing webcam access while i viewed an ad, I did so, and did not get the PROMISED bonus

Make this proper
