Rewards for Surveys
Toluna offers an extensive rewards catalogue.
Gift certificates and PayPal payments - Toluna offers a substantial selection of gift certificates to retailers including Amazon, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, iTunes, Tango, Best Buy, Target, and more. Gift certificate values start at 30,000 points, or $10. PayPal payments start at 90,000 points ($30). These amounts are stated for Toluna USA, and may vary slightly by region.
Toluna Gifties - The Gifties program is essentially an instant win game where a small number of points can be exchanged for a chance to win a prize. Each Giftie represents an actual item that can become real if you are a winner. Winners are chosen at random, and bidding on Gifties does not guarantee winning them.
Sweepstakes - Toluna offers monthly draws for thousands of dollars in cash and items such as electronics whose entries can be redeemed for a relatively small number of points. Note that sweepstakes draws are not available in all regions.
Toluna states on their website that it can take up to 8 weeks for delivery of rewards after they've been requested. However, many members seem to receive virtual gift cards and PayPal payments within a few days of request.
Number of Points Per Survey
The number of points will vary per survey and is based on things like the length and complexity of the survey. That said, successful survey completions can award anywhere from 15 - 20,000 points each.
New Member Bonus
New members to the Toluna community will automatically have 500 points deposited into their accounts.
Product Testing Opportunities
Toluna offers its members the opportunity to test products from home. Members can apply to test the products they find the most interesting. Product tests can be for things such as makeup, toothbrushes, deodorant, and more. Users participating in product tests can keep the product and are asked to provide their feedback using it.
Additional Ways to Earn Points
Besides participating in online surveys, members of Toluna can earn additional points by participating in sponsored mini-polls (typically a yes/no question for 15 points), filling out profile surveys (worth 100 points each) and by referring friends (500 points per referral).
Toluna's up to their old tricks again and it's the same old Greenfield Online slower than molasses in January payout issue. I'm seeing more fluff and less substantial research going on here and it's really pretty sad. The social network seems to take precedence over legitimate research.
fun site and you get surveys every so often. point values are higher but sometimes your points dont go in right away. need a lot of points for rewards ! but the surveys are not toooo boring
Toluna is the most unprofessional site i have ever experienced in every field. these people are like mosquitoes and suck blood of normal peoples. I advice you all not to join this site for minimum benefit because they will pay you less than salt you buy for daily use
When I first joined Toluna less than a year ago their rewards were fair. I could get a reward from them at least once a month. Since then, they have raised the point levels for rewards and I feel they have cheated on their gifties prizes. I finally cashed in points for a $25 Walmart gift card that took me more than 4 months to get. There was still over 5500 points left, so I spent them all on trying to get a subscription to HGTV magazine. I failed on all. That tells me that either the odds are too high or its cheating. They have become a complete waste of time. I have other survey companies that have kept their points for rewards the same and I have been still cashing them out on a regular basis, My account with Toluna is now cancelled.
I have been a member of toluna off and on for years. I love the great payout. I receives $25 dollar check every cash out. Great jobToluna
