Since Branded Surveys routes panelists to survey sites to gather data, surveys can be blocked by this function.Please check your antivirus software settings to see if this is the case so you can continue to take great surveys!

Our offer walls view all points received from the walls as offers. An offer can only have one reward amount and so we cannot set an alternate amount for disqualifying from the "offer".

Points

Once you successfully complete a survey, the points will go into a pending status for up to 14 days so our business partners can ensure the answers were valid and not fraudulent. Once you reach 1,000 approved points, you will be able to click "Redeem Now" to cash out, at which point it takes three to five business days to receive payment post approval.

Once you've earned a minimum of 1000 Points, or $10, you are eligible to redeem your points. You can redeem your Points for cash via PayPal, Branded Pay or request an electronic gift card from Tango and their participating retailers. Your "Redeem Points" button will be active under your point total in "My Points".

"Pending" means your points are under review until the date noted in your All Earnings page. It may take up to 24 hours for points to post into a pending state. The pending state for surveys can take up to 14 days. After we have cleared your responses with our research partners we will mark your Points from "Pending" to "Approved." You can find the date that your Points will be approved in your All Earnings page.

We have to wait until our research partners give us the all clear on the data provided in order to release. This is generally a regular practice and happens on all studies.

The daily poll is a simple multiple choice question that automatically gifts you 5 points upon completion. As an Elite Bronze Member, once you reach 10 daily polls in a row, known as a poll streak, you will be rewarded 25 points. As an Elite Silver Member, you will earn 50 points, and as an Elite Gold Member, you will earn 100 points. If the daily poll does not directly apply to you, simply answer to the best of your abilities. We come up with a new question every day, and as hard as we try some questions just don't apply to every Branded Surveys member. 

In order to cash out, you must have 1,000 approved points. Once you reach 1,000 points a "Redeem Points" link will appear. Pending points must clear before being eligible to redeem. You may redeem your points by navigating to My Points or My Dashboard and selecting the "Redeem Points" button. Note - this button will only appear once you have the minimum number of points to redeem (1000 points).

In order to redeem a Promo Code for Points, click on the dropdown arrow next to your name and select "Redeem Promo Code."

When you take a survey the points are added to your pending points and need to be approved by our business partners. These appear in your point total in anticipation that they will be approved, however this is not always the case. Our clients require that surveys be taken in the anticipated length of time for thoughtful answers, so short survey times and non detailed information can lead to pending points being rejected.

Surveys

Branded Surveys will use our Survey Matching Engine to match you with a list of bonus surveys that will be sent to you in succession based on your qualifications.

Try disabling any pop-up blocker you may have installed in your browser. Pop up blockers can sometimes create issues with the Bonus Surveys.

Our Survey Matching Engine routes you to as many surveys as possible based on company expected survey criteria.Take as many surveys as you like and we will pay you for each successful complete.
You may be asked to answer some of the same questions a few times as this helps the matching engine route you from research partner to research partner!

All surveys are hosted by our research partners. We invite you in to the survey and they provide the questions and collect the data, anonymously of course.

The surveys may only be available for a limited time, and after we fill our quota we cannot accept anymore responses. Our research partners have specific quotas that state how many completed surveys they need. Once we reach that quota, the survey is no longer available. Sometimes this can happen within minutes of the survey becoming available.

We try our best to pre-qualify you for all surveys, however in some cases, we won't have all the necessary information. Please be sure to check that all of you profile information is up to date and that your survey answers are current and honest. We will encourage you to update your profile throughout the year. This will help us be more accurate in matching you to more surveys.
At times, you will have qualified for a survey, but the survey quota or number of panelists have been met. This may be the case when our clients specify how many responses they need, and we cannot accept any more submissions.This is especially true when there are specific subpopulations that our client is trying to reach. You may fit the overall qualifications, but we already have enough responses from your specific demographic.

All new surveys that match your qualifications will be emailed to the email address of record. They will also appear on your dashboard when you login.
Keep in mind, our Survey Matching Engine uses your demographics to match you with a survey that you are most likely to successfully complete.

Most surveys are between 10-20 minutes. We'll always tell you the expected amount of time it will take to complete a survey before you begin. We track the average completion time and ensure that on the whole the estimations are accurate. Note - typically longer surveys offer you a larger payout.

We have to wait until the survey has closed to credit you for the completion. All earned Points are available to redeem for the reward of your choosing 14 days after you receive them.These points will be listed as "Pending" until they are approved.

Once you have identified the survey causing concern, click on "Report Issue" to the right of the survey. Note, the "Report Issue" button will only appear next to a survey for 24 hours after attempted survey start.

When a survey invite goes out, it can attract more participants than originally planned and you can receive an "OQ", or "Over Quota". After an OQ you will have the opportunity to continue taking surveys and a new opportunity will be waiting for you.

Occasionally, a survey will be sent to you but may not be the best match for your profile. In this case you will get an NQ, or Not Qualified notification. To reduce these occurrences we may ask you a set of demographic questions. For your effort, we will reward you with points!

A unique three word phrase is generally assigned and presented prior to beginning a survey. If an error occurs while taking a survey, please report your issue using the three word phrase, attaching/submitting a screen shot of the error screen, and explaining the issue with as much detail as possible.This will assist us in identifying the survey issue more efficiently, allowing us to respond in a more timely, thorough manner.
