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). You can also request a $25 check with 75,000 points 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).
Eligibility: Residents worldwide 13+
Toluna took over another company that was very legit and i liked. They transferred my points,i kept doing surveys and the points added up but then one day all my points were gone. They said i wasn't active but i save all surveys I complete and anything relevant to survey sites. I showed them I was active by sending them confirmations of completed surveys. They never responded back to me.Granted, I didn't do every survey but i did enough to keep active. All those points gone and time gone. Beware.
I was a member for a very short time and did not like the experience. Several times the title of the survey did not match the content (e.g. "Movies" survey asking about travel, shopping and lifestyle, going through what seemed endless lists of questions without getting to the point). I felt the panel did not value my time, but tried to get a lot more than initially stated, in exchange for very little or occasionally no reward. Sorry, Toluna, I want a better experience as a panelist. Start with being truthful about the purpose of the surveys.
I have been a member for around a month and a half and have so far cashed out £60 worth of amazon vouchers and am away tomorrow to cash out another £20. I use the UK site, pretty much always qualify for the surveys of which i can only do 5 a day BUT when they send emails i can do around 7-8 sometimes more per day. Most i waited for a Emailed Amazon voucher was 16 days.. not too bad. Overall a great site. Maybe it might be different in the USA site as i see alot of complaints but all good here in the UK :)
Two calendar months waiting for a $25 check.....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. Is this outfit even financially solvent any more?
Toluna has never had a lot of decent gift cards to redeem for, and now they have gotten rid of the two best ones - Tango and Walmart. At least if you didn't want any card Toluna had, you could redeem for a Tango card (which you could then use to get a Macy's card or Nordstrom's or something similar). They have NOTHING I want now, and have added junk like their own brand of selfie stick (doesn't say which kind of smartphone you can use it with) and some kind of battery. You can still get Paypal or a check, but I can get Paypal faster with Opinion Outpost, and for much fewer points. I will be cashing out for a Target e-card and then quitting.
