BrandBee (previously Mobile Performance Meter) is a mobile app that claims you can earn rewards by sharing your opinion. Over the years, I have encountered hundreds of apps that make the same claim, so I know by experience that not all of them are legit or worth it.
Now, the question is, is this app legit or just another scam?
That’s what this BrandBee review is for. It will not only check if the app is legit, but it will also explain all the features of the app so you will know exactly what to expect before you even install it.
That way, you will be able to make an educated decision on whether this app is worth it or not. So, let’s check out BrandBee, shall we?
What is BrandBee, and what does it offer?
BrandBee is a survey app that will reward you for answering surveys. It used to be called Mobile Performance Meter, and I have previously reviewed that. But I decided to write this new review since the new version is a completely different app, in my opinion.
And yes, it is indeed a legit app since you can really earn rewards from it. However, that doesn’t mean it is worth your time. To figure out if you should install this app, you must first understand how it works. The best way to do that is to examine the earning opportunities it offers so you will know how much time and effort you need to invest to earn rewards from it.
So, here’s how to earn from BrandBee.
Option 1 – Paid Surveys
One way to earn from BrandBee is to answer surveys. This opportunity was also available in the old version but only as a secondary earning option. But with the latest version, it has become more of the primary way to earn from the app.
If you have joined survey apps before, then this opportunity will be very familiar to you because it works the same way as the surveys you can find on other survey apps. You choose a survey you want to answer and click it.
Then, you answer a few qualifying questions so that BrandBee can find out if you belong to the group the survey is meant for. If you qualify, you get to answer the actual survey. If you don’t qualify, you just move on to the next available survey.
You will receive a certain number of coins after completing a survey. Later, I will discuss what you can do with the coins you‘ve earned.
When I tested the app, there were not a lot of surveys available (around 5 to 6 surveys per day), so it’s quite hard to earn regularly from this opportunity.
Option 2 – Daily Points
This option will let you earn passively. To do so, you have to enable the Accessibility option of the app on your device’s settings. When you enable this option, the app will run in the background and gather data regarding how you use your mobile device.
The data gathered will include your location, the apps you use, and more. It might sound a bit invasive, but the app guarantees it won’t collect any sensitive information like your passwords, account info, etc. Enabling this option will also allow the app to send you location-based surveys, so it can help you earn more from answering surveys.
Once it is enabled, you will earn a certain number of points every day. The downside is that it will consume your device’s battery a lot quicker. So, you need to keep this in mind if you decide to enable it.
Option 3 – Cashback Offers
The other way to earn from BrandBee is through its cashback offers. In case you are not familiar with this opportunity, let me explain how it works.
The idea is to buy an item from the store that is offering cashback. To start, just log in to the app, go to the Cashback section, and see if there are offers that you will be interested in. When I tested the app, there were cashback offers from popular online retailers like Macy’s, Amazon, Best Buy, and more.
However, the cashback rates were quite low, in my opinion. So, you won’t earn a lot from this opportunity. Before you avail of an offer, make sure to read the conditions you need to meet to receive the reward.
After you complete the purchase and you’ve followed all the instructions, you will be eligible to receive the cashback reward. However, this will not be credited to your BrandBee account balance immediately.
That’s because the store must wait for the refund period to clear before they award any cashback rewards to BrandBee. So, this opportunity is not something you can immediately earn from.

How do you get paid?
The earning opportunities BrandBee offers will reward you with coins. Now, the question is, what can you do with the coins you’ve earned? Well, as you can see in the photo below, you can use them to redeem various gift cards.
You can redeem a gift card for Amazon, Best Buy, Macy’s, and more. The number of coins required to redeem a gift card will depend on the type of gift card you will redeem. Some gift cards will only require you to earn 300 coins. These are worth $3. Other gift cards will require more coins (around 1,000 to 2,500 coins).
The conversion rate will be 100 coins equals $1, so it’s quite easy to figure out how much you’ve earned. Overall, the payment system of BrandBee is relatively straightforward. However, as you can see, it doesn’t offer cash rewards.
So, if you are looking to earn cash, I suggest you check out the top sites that pay via PayPal instead.
How much money can you make?
I will say right now that you will not earn a lot from BrandBee. That’s because it doesn’t offer a lot of opportunities to earn. As mentioned earlier, there are only a few surveys available at any given time. Plus, you actually have to qualify before you can earn from a survey.
There are also not a lot of cashback offers available, so you will most likely not find any interesting offers. Plus, the cashback rates offered are also not that great. And even though you can earn passively from the Daily Points opportunity, it still won’t be enough to significantly increase your earnings, in my opinion.
As for the number of coins you can earn per survey, you will only earn around 30 to 50 coins per survey. If you convert that to cash, that will only be worth $0.30 to $0.50 per survey. That is why I would say the earning potential of BrandBee is very low.
The older version had better earning potential, in my opinion, because it would, at least, let you earn passively, which can significantly impact the amount you can earn per month.
Can you use it on a desktop?
BrandBee is a mobile-only platform, so you will need to use a mobile device to earn from it. However, the app is only available to Android users.
The app is relatively user-friendly, so you should not have any problems navigating it. Plus, you won’t encounter any annoying pop-up ads while using it. The overall user experience it provides is generally pleasant, in my opinion.
Who can join BrandBee?
BrandBee doesn’t tell you exactly which countries it is available in, but from what I can see, it is only available in a few countries like the US and possibly Canada. The best way to find out if it is available in your country is to search for it on Google Play.
If you can find it among the results, then that means it is available in your country. To sign up, you must install the app first. Then, when you open the app for the first time, it will ask you how you want to log in. For this, you can use your Google or Facebook account to sign up.
Now, if you were a member of Mobile Performance Member, you’d unfortunately have to sign up again because your old account will not be carried over to the new BrandBee platform.
Can you get support?
If you have any questions about the app or your account, you can check out the Help Center page of the app’s website. It discusses most of the basic topics you need to know about the app.
If you can’t find the answers you are looking for, then you must contact support. To do so, you can use the contact form provided by the website, or you can also access it from the app.
Overall, I would say the app does provide the minimum required support to its members since it offers a couple of ways for you to get in touch with the support department.
BrandBee is a legit survey app that will let you earn from paid surveys and cashback offers. It has a couple of decent features, but it also has certain limitations you need to be aware of.
To conclude this review, let me summarize its pros and cons so you can get a clear overview of what it offers. Then, you can decide if it is worth it or not.
- The app is user-friendly
- Has partnered with popular retail stores
- Limited earning opportunities
- Low rewards
- Doesn’t offer cash rewards
In my opinion, BrandBee is not a bad app. However, I prefer the older version because it has better earning potential. This new iteration seems to lack earning opportunities, which means you will have to invest a lot of time to earn a decent amount.
It also doesn’t help that the app doesn’t offer cash rewards. So, if you are looking for great apps or sites to earn from, I suggest you check out the top survey and GPT sites in your country instead. The apps and sites on this list all have good earning potential, so you will be able to earn a good amount in no time.
Plus, you will definitely find a site or app you can join regardless of where you live.
