Survey Taking Experience

Earn Points for Survey Disqualifications

If you are disqualified from completing a survey, you will be credited with additional points for your attempt which will be based on the points value of the survey.

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 to Redeem Points

When you complete a survey, you will be rewarded points and your survey answers are 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.

Not Worth The Time

January 19, 2020 by Tonya from United States

Although the minimum payout for this site is only $10.00 it's not worth the time it takes to reach that payout. You "don't qualify" for survey after survey.

Hi Tonya,

If you are deemed NQ from a survey, you should be routed to the next available match! We also encourage you to check out our Partner Surveys page for additional earning opportunities. Thank you!
very poor

January 19, 2020 by phil from United Kingdom

Since the above site changed from mintvine it has gone downhill fast, they used to give 10 points (now 5 for daily poll,started marking you bronze,silver or gold badge.on the dashboard, rejecting surveys saying you are rushing them. If you are on pc when survey comes in 90% of the time you cannot do it. Also when it was mintvine you used to get 30 points fairly regularly if you could not do certain surveys. Not worth the time and effort.

Hi Phil,

We're sorry to hear that you didn't have a great experience. We did make some changes, both the elite action chart and leaderboard focus on rewarding members who are engaged and involved. We hope you can take advantage of this!
Points taken

January 17, 2020 by Diana from Canada

Yeah I completed a crap ton of surveys and played games to receive points was at almost 5000 points then 4000 of them taken away I did complete them and Was APPROVED for completing them then bam gone, and the excuse I'll get is oh well the partner survey didnt like the answers so they took the points. That dont matter if are approved then we are entitled to the points . We take the time to honestly answer the surveys so we are entitled to the points.

Hello Diana,

We are so sorry to hear about this mix up.
We recently discovered that one of our partner’s has been erroneously approving survey completes more than once.

Rest assured, we have corrected your account balance to reflect the actual number of times which you participated in our surveys and offers.

Used to be a good earning site.

January 14, 2020 by Donna from United States

Not anymore. Has really gone down hill in the last few months. Not sure what's happening but it takes a lot longer to hit $10 than it used to. Survey offers are usually around 20-30 cents, underpaid. Really sad to see what used to be a good site turn bad. Seems to be happening a lot lately.
