Looking to earn a little extra in your free time? Then take a look at this Branded Surveys (formerly MintVine)review to see how much you can earn per hour and why their daily poll is easy money.
Most of us get at least a few minutes spare every day, even if it’s just 10 minutes sat in-front of the TV. So why not put that time to good use and earn a bit extra? There are lots of survey sites out there, so it’s a case of deciding which are the best fit for you and more importantly, which pay the most.
Why Branded Surveys?
Branded Surveys has been around for several years, although they recently rebranded from MintVine.
Earning rewards is very easy to do. Signing up is simple and earns you 100 points in just five minutes. You can then earn extra by filling in some profile questions and answering a quick daily poll. Then, it’s time to start tackling some proper surveys.
Although Branded Surveys awards you points instead of money for completing surveys (one of my pet hates), it’s easy to convert as 1 point is equal to $0.01. So complete a survey for 100 points and you earn $1.
You only need to reach 1000 points ($10) before you can make a withdrawal, which you can hit quite quickly. You have the choice of withdrawing by PayPal or by voucher. There’s a decent enough choice of vouchers that include Amazon, iTunes, Tesco and several more. You can also earn extra points by completing the daily poll (which takes seconds)
and complete it 10 days in a row for an easy 25 point bonus. If you complete enough surveys, you can become an Elite Gold Member. This means that you will earn 10 points for every poll you complete and 100 points when you hit your 10 in a row. That means you can earn $6 in a month, just from a few seconds every day. Unfortunately, in October 2018, the daily poll was changed to just 5 points without a bonus for completing 10 in a row. Boo!
You also earn up points if you’re screened out of a survey. This is usually between 1-6 points, but occasionally you’ll be awarded 30 points! Ok, so these aren’t massive sums but not many sites reward you for failure.
Branded Surveys also has a useful refer a friend scheme. Get some of your friends or family to sign-up and you’ll earn extra points.
I managed to earn just over £50 in 10 days.
There aren’t too many bad points with Branded Surveys. Surveys don’t pay out straight away, so you sometimes end up waiting for a couple of weeks before your points are credited. This isn’t a major issue though and just requires a bit of patience.
You can be screened out of quite a few surveys, but as you’re normally compensated, this isn’t so bad.
One slight downside is that I don’t think the surveys pay quite as well as some of the best sites. They are on par with many others, but they don’t match the likes of Prolific.
There are plenty of surveys available, but how many points you earn seems to vary wildly. I have completed surveys that pay 20 points for 12 minutes work, and then completed another survey in 3 minutes for 40 points. On average, expect to earn around £5-6 per hour. However, refer friends and become an Elite Gold Member and you could earn slightly more.
Payment should reach you within 3-5 working days.
Because you are paid in US dollars, it does mean that the amount you receive in £s can vary depending on the exchange rate.
I recommend that you allow Branded Surveys to email you when surveys are available so you don’t miss out on any potential earnings. You can easily turn this off if you get fed up with notifications.
My Branded Surveys review conclusion
Just like every other survey site out there, Branded Surveys won’t make you rich. However, I find that I can regularly make over $100 per month from this site alone. l also like the fact that it is easy to earn points from the daily poll and you can earn extra from your friends. This is certainly a site worth signing up to.
