It's easy to see why Toluna is at the end of the list of recommendations for survey sites. Having only been with the site less than a month, I have since closed my account. In several communications with Customer Service there replies were rude and condescending commits. In so... much as advising for me to be "honest" with my profile information. WHAT?! Please explain why anyone would lie about there profile! Aside from that, many surveys requested that I place my teenager at the computer to complete the survey. WHAT?! I opened the account for myself not my teenager. I would highly advise to stay away from Toluna.
A lot of people complain about Toluna, but I like it! They have a fun community with lots of contests too, so you can earn points. It can take a while to earn points for surveys but they have lots of cheap rewards that you get quickly. I was able to get a $10 gift card for Best Buy and a $5 one for Starbucks last week and they delivered them in 1 day! Can’t wait to get more rewards from this site.
Lucky, i only joined this pathetic site 2 weeks ago. I was bombarded with surveys, thinking wow, this is good, after all i was going to get paid. I mean look at all these points, I must be making heaps! ... WRONG!!! 3000 points = $1.00Au After 2 weeks i'd scrounged up a whole $2.40Au Plus the pending garbage, (whatever!) Anyway something made me really sus, I done a survey on another site call it "X" and it was worth $10Au to me for about 15 mins, The very next day Toluna invited me to a survey, as it started a logo of site "X" popped up, it was the exact same survey i done the night B4. "X" must have outsourced it to fill the quota? Here is the laughable bit, Toluna offered 5000 dumbo points = $1.66Au, That says it all folks, I started "scam hunting" Toluna, schoschie, had a good review! Thx to all your many wise words, hope my insight helps someone else too!
They take your personal information and kick you off the survey before you can complete it but after a good 10 minutes or so of answering questions.
I dropped them the moment I realized I didn't trust them any longer & that the stakes were too high to continue with them. What I mean by this, is, whatever duration (time it takes to complete the survey) that they tell you it is...quadruple--at least--that & know that there is a 95% chance U will be disqualified...funny, how that ALWAYS happens at the end of the survey; after you've COMPLETED it! Here's the math: a) 20 mins = 1 1/2 - 2 hrs; b) the stated award (if U do get through it & they credit U), is, of course, for 20 mins...NOT the more than an hour U just put into it; but their best trick is; c) 95% of the time, they get ALL that info from U for free! I have never been as ANGRY at a site as I have this one & that is why. Frustrating as it may be, it's expected that a few surveys will waste your time & that goes with the territory. But when you start to see a pattern: watch out! Get out! There are too many sites that treat you well for this to be "acceptable" practice. Their explanations they give are not even "creative"! ("You may have already started the survey & not finished when the quota was reached, which then rejects you"...) Why is it that the quota waits till I'm at the end, to be reached...every time??? I dropped them. I'm glad for those of U who have fared-well with them; I did not.
