REDEEMING REWARDS

Once you have earned a minimum of 500 points, you will have the option to redeem your points for cash or gift cards. Choose any amount over $5.00. Gift cards are awarded in $5.00 increments. Alternatively, choose PayPal or Branded Pay (bank transfer) for payment. Redemptions are processed within 1-2 business days.

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.

Horrible! should not even exist!

December 29, 2013 by laura from United States

Been working on my $10.00 payout for 3 weeks now.. some surveys do not reward right away and the list does not refresh if you have completed the items. nothing new and done but do not qualify points do not show up for me.. pointless unless you want to make 10 usd in one month..
edit* made one cash out and nothing but wasted time on rewards given then taken away.. sold my phone number or gave it away and now am completely badgered by sales call all day long. stay away from MINTVINE!!

AWESOME

December 17, 2013 by ANDREA from United States

Mintvine is great! I have just joined & I cashed out twice already. The $ was in my paypal account within a few days. I will be cashing out for a 3rd and 4th time as soon as my survey points clear. I get survey invites multiple times a day, and I hardly get disqualified! I love this site!

MintVine

November 25, 2013 by Michelle from United States

Things started out well with this site. I was able to get over 500 points right away (need 1,000 to cash out for $10) then things stalled. I haven't been qualifying for surveys. I'm only accumulating points by getting the 5 points for not qualifying and answering their polls at 5 points each. Also, like another person mentioned, I don't like the fact that they don't remove surveys from the list after you try them, so you don't know which you've done and which you haven't. I'm going to stick with it until I get enough points to cash out for $10. After that I probably will not continue using MintVine.

Fast Payout

October 29, 2013 by Craig from United States

Though you don't get that many survey opportunities, you are given 5 points for every survey you try, even if you are disqualified. They also let you know early in the screening process whether you qualify for a survey, which tells me this site has integrity. I got my first $10 very quickly and it was deposited into my paypal account within 2 days. So far, this site is worth checking out and seems to operate with integrity.

Nice User Interface might have potential

October 16, 2013 by si from United States

My feeling is that this is a pretty new portal.

I cannot say anything yet about the payout process.

The site itself is very well made but seems to have some bugs still.

In a week I have been invited to 3 studies.

One was for boat owners. Hmmmmm why did I fill out all of the survey profiles and clearly stated that I do not own a boat.

The other 2 have been marked "currently closed. the customer wants to review ... bla bla bla".

So no survey.

they also have the "offers" you find on a lot of portals these days (trialpay etc). etc.

Whenever I click on an offer I am being told I am not logged in. ......... hmmmmmmm

I still did 2 offers (obviously I am logged in when I click an offer out of my account home page) and did not receive points for both.

One I understand. It was one of the "surveys" where you click trough a zillion offers. Finally you can upload a photo and create a zombie out of it.

I used a photo of my ex. So they probably thought I was cheating as he looks like a mean Zombie to begin with.

I hope they do improve and would gladly edit my review in that case.

I delete my account at 3 hmmmmmm´s so far we are at 2.
