Branded Surveys

In this Branded Surveys review, I will share my personal experience and view on this online paid survey site.

Branded Surveys Review

Branded Surveys is an online survey community where members earn cash and gift cards rewards by expressing their opinions on products and services.

Is Branded Surveys legit or scam?

Formerly known as MintVine, Branded Surveys survey panel was acquired by Branded Research Inc. I was paid multiple times by MintVine and once by Branded Surveys. So I can say that Branded Surveys does pay members, it is legit and not a scam.

Who can join Branded Surveys?

What are the survey rewards

Members earn points for answering daily polls and online surveys. Once you have accumulated 1000 points ($10), you can redeem them for following rewards:

  • Cash through Paypal or bank transfer (Branded Pay)
  • Gift cards – amazon, walmart, target etc

Branded Surveys Review

As a previous MintVine member, I am not really happy with the newly branded Branded Surveys. I can tell the owner of Branded Surveys has done a few things to improve member experiences – like they redesigned the member dashboard, added some features, but the most important survey taking aspect still need to be greatly improved.

There are a few things I like about Branded Surveys: #1. they have many surveys with various survey length (from under 10 minutes to 30 minutes) and points incentives. #2. The daily polls offer 5 points. #3. Profile surveys also provide extra points – those are very short surveys and most offer 10 points. #4. Daily TV surveys that worth 35 points. #5 Offer cash/Paypal and amazon gift cards payout options with low $10 threshold.

Even though they have lot of survey opportunities, it was very hard to qualify surveys and earn points. Out of 10 – 15 surveys I tried out I probably only qualified for one survey if I was lucky. What’s worse is that when I started a survey, they kept asking me the same qualifying (demographic) questions over and over – trying to loop me into many other surveys when I didn’t qualify for the first survey I intended to take. This was very confusing and wasted me lot of time at first. I am sure many other members have the similar frustrating experience.

I have decided to pause taking their surveys unless they make some real change. I still log into my account regularly and take daily polls and answer some profile surveys to earn extra points. It’s unfortunate that the good old MintVine is gone.


Branded Surveys is a legitimate survey site, but for me the unfriendly survey taking experience has been disappointing. I would check them out from time to time, to see if there is any improvements, and at the same time earn some points by taking their daily polls.

If you have extra time to spare, you can sign up with Branded Surveys and give them a try, maybe your experience will be different from mine, otherwise, I would suggest you join the other top survey sites.

Thank you for reading my Branded Surveys review! I hope you find it helpful. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this survey site and any comments or questions are welcome!

  1. I do not believe anybody who earns $39 would walk away from a survey without demanding payment.

    Btw, I joined Branded and Survey Junkie this year and I have been paid multiple times since January. In all the years, I have never earned as much money as I have been from the two of these alone.

    • HI Stuart,

      I love Survey Junkies too!! Hope to reach payout soon! Glad to hear you have good experience with Branded Surveys – probably it’s just not good fit for my demographic, but I will go back from time to time. Thanks for your comments!
