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.

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 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.

Not worth the effort

June 28, 2020 by Mary from United States

This is a very poor quality survey site. One doesn't qualify for 99% of surveys offered, so it's an incredible waste of time just to go through so many surveys until one qualifies for one & then just hope that you'll get through it without being knocked out early because the survey is full! It's really insane & unfair the way it's set up. The site also randomly deletes rewards earned for surveys that have been completed--it's extraordinarily unfair! The only plus is that once one eventually gets enough points to earn a reward, it is paid out quickly. The site responded that I could have contacted them, but that is virtually impossible--I tried many times!! There is no way to do so.

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.

really gone downhill

May 26, 2020 by Barbara from United Kingdom

This site is geared to the US market & doesn't take into account it has members in the UK. Most of the surveys come into the UK overnight & by the time we get to them they are no longer there. You are paid out after 1000 points which translates to 10$ or about £7.00. Many of the surveys are now for single figure points and take about 25 minutes to complete. I worked out that if you have 8 point surveys and 25 minutes it is going to take 52 hrs 9 minutes to earn £7.00 slave labour or what. Also with these meager points it is impossible to be able to reach the targets to earn bonuses. It is also sometimes impossible to complete any surveys at all in a day as you are screened out of most of them, often when you have spent a lot of time answering questions. This used to be one of the better sites, not anymore

Haven’t been paid after three attempts

May 22, 2020 by Joey from Canada

So at first everything seemed good with this site, making good points good account health everything good, then I try to redeem $70 into pay pal and it all goes downhill... they’ve claim to be processing the payment then it’s approved and for no reason at all I don’t receive any payment, I email them then my points are returned to my account. Rinse, repeat. I’ve done this three times now. Meanwhile my account health has gone from excellent to good to moderate to poor for no reason at all. AVOID THIS WASTE OF TIME.

Redeeming Points

May 19, 2020 by Rosalie from Canada

I still have not been contacted by Branded Survey as they stated that they tried to reach out to me.

It appears that there are lots of unhappy people with their site.

I am totally there with them on that.

Today is May 19/2020
Still waiting

You cant redeem your points unless you have a cell phone.

I dont have have one and have lots of points - not right.


Account Health

Lose the strength because I do surveys too fast - know the questions before they even come up so dont have to even think of the answers. I now only do the daily poll - all the other surveys are a waste of time. Get nothing for doing them.

Branded Surveys responded to this review on May 19, 2020

Hello Rosalie,

I apologize for any miscommunication - we've reached out and replied to multiple inquiries from you - but I think our messages are not being received. Could you please try to reach out to us with a different email address (other than hotmail)? I do believe there is an issue here with the provider- Please reach out and ask for Hanna so we can resolve your issue as quickly as possible- thank you!
