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.

It the point to get them to clear out the "PAUSED SURVEY/ PENDING" AND IT REDIRECTS YOU MORE THEN MOST WHICH TO ME IS A NON PAYMENT !!!!!! NO PAYMENT TIME

Cash Outs Constantly Rejected

January 9, 2015 by Erika from United States

My cash outs have been rejected without explanation 4 times. The first 3 times, I wrote customer service and they got pushed through.This is annoying and I shouldn't have to contact them, but at least I got my money. On the most recent occasion, I wrote customer service. Their response "Your account has been flagged due to IP stamps from the Caribbean." I have informed them that I did in fact travel to the Caribbean and they haven't responded. First of all, that response is useless and doesn't resolve the problem, which is that they owe me money. Second, I was not advised that I would need to stay in the US in order to be a panel member, and be careful to not log in to my account if I did in fact leave the country! This panel was ok until they started this nonsense. As of right now, they have stolen my opinions and are refusing to pay on a very flimsy excuse. Even if I get my money, I am done with this company. Too many hurdles and too little payout.

Beware

January 6, 2015 by Danetra from United States

Poor customer service, barely can qualify for any surveys, surveys take to long to pend, just absolutely a horrible website overall.

I would not recommend it for anyone to use unless you have time to waste by not qualifying for surveys.

Waste of Time

January 4, 2015 by Daniel from Nigeria

I registered with them December, 2014 and was able to complete my profile survey. After that they keep sending series of invitation which i am unable to participate in any.
When i click on the survey links they will first present me with terms of the survey which i must check the boxes to continue. After checking the boxes and click on continue, all i ever had as response is "you are not qualify to take this survey - sorry!"
I thought it was my profile settings, i logged in to edit my profile only to realized there is no room for that. The worst of it is that their support is not working.
...completely waste of time!

Good, but sketchy at times

December 23, 2014 by James from United States

This has been my favorite panel for some time, opportunities everyday and if you are diligent can pull off $5 a day or so. Never had any issues until today when a $15 payment was rejected. No reasoning why. Same (verified) PayPal account used as all my other payments. And as of now, no response from support. I have another $28 ready to cash out but worried ill never see it now
