Joining Branded Surveys is free (as all survey panels should be) and you can connect your Facebook account to save a lot of time. You can sign up at as young as 13, but you MUST have parental consent to participate if you are between the ages of 13-17 years old.
One outstanding bonus that Branded Surveys offers is a 300 point signup bonus accompanied with some interesting intro surveys. Most users are able to accrue enough for their first cash out within a few days.
How You’ll Earn
Branded Surveys is heavily focused on surveys, with frequent invites that offer you a chance to earn.
If you stick around and prove to be a reliable market research participant, Branded Surveys will occasionally offer the crown jewel of survey sites: In-Home Product Testing. These rare opportunities are hard to beat with an hourly earning rate of $25-$50.
Branded Surveys also offers Focus Groups and Market Research Studies with similarly high hourly rates, though these are pretty infrequent.
Surveys are worth between 150 to 300 points each, and receive 5 points even when you don’t qualify to complete a survey. Redeem 1000 points for a $10 cash payment to your PayPal account.
Redemption & Processing
We’ve read multiple accounts of people getting paid within 24 hours of cashing out. Most users have reported they are able to reach the cash out level pretty quickly but it takes a bit for the surveys to be processed in a brand new account.
1000 point ($10) minimum account balance required to request PayPal or Amazon gift code. There is no option for a physical check.
Branded Surveys has a great reputation for getting back to their customers quickly and making sure your points don’t “disappear” which is the case with some panels. You can expect a response within 24 hours minimum to your inquiries.
Unfortunately, Branded Surveys does have a 2 week waiting period to approve your cash out. Once it is approved you will receive it quickly.
Survey disqualifications on Branded Surveys have been known to occur which is pretty standard across the industry. You are at least awarded 5-10 points if you are DQ’d.
Branded Surveys has a terrific refer-a-friend program. You’ll receive 50 points for each friend you refer that fully registers. The best part of the program is that you’ll also receive 15% of all points earned by you’re referrals as long as they remain active.
With a nice $3 sign-on bonus, solid paying surveys, and the potential to join highly lucrative focus groups joining Branded Surveys is a no-brainer. Though they’re kind of the new kid on the block, even survey veterans are impressed by this operation. If you want to take surveys and earn reasonable redemptions you can count on, Branded Surveys is a must-have.
