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

Branded Surveys is an online survey site 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 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 1000 approved points, 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.


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 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. 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.

Great Free Survey Site

August 6, 2020 by Stevie from United States

I've been using Branded Surveys for several years now and I've suggested it to several friends and I love this site, I've had little to no trouble with this site over the last few years, I've been using it since it was MintVine and I've earned thirty or more gift cards. They make it so easy to answer surveys and earn a few extra bucks, this is a great site even if you don't spend a lot of time on it.

Professional site...

August 4, 2020 by Ann from United States

THis is a legitimate site with many survey opportunities every day. During my two year relationship with them, I have cashed out almost 40 times and earned about $425. I like it that this site is just about surveys, rather than all of that other junkola involving videos, games, promo offers and such found on some other sites I also take surveys on.

Would I like to make more money per survey and qualify for all of them? Yes, but as survey sites go, so far this one does rate near the top of my list...I tend to try out many of them and favor the ones that seem more serious about delivering quality research to their clients and rewarding good, loyal survey takers more fairly.

Disappointing new rule

August 3, 2020 by JAN from United Kingdom

I have been using this site for more than 2 years and had found it to be one of the best. However they have now introduced a new rule that requires anyone who wishes to be paid by Paypal to submit a contract mobile phone number and proof that it is their phone before such a payment can be made. I feel that this is discriminatory as I do not want or need a contract mobile phone and cannot see how having one will make my Paypal transaction more secure. None of the other survey companies I use have this rule and until now there have been no problems with any Paypal transactions in the past 2 years. I started doing surveys when I retired so that I do not have to cut back on things like Christmas gifts now that I am no longer working and it has proved very effective. I do not want to have vouchers - they go out of date and are not necessarily what I want to give as gifts. I feel badly let down by this new rule and cannot get past the same comment from "customers services" which is "submit your telephone information" when I try to get paid. Has anyone got any advice to give on how I can put my point to someone in higher authority at Branded Surveys about this matter ?
