30,000 points required to obtain lowest payout of a $10 GC to one of several places. I like money, so I need 60,000 to get a $20 PayPal payout.
Surveys pay what seems to be an average of 1,600 points if you qualify. I tend to get screened out a lot which gives only about 70 points, if any.
There are often "sponsored content" mini-polls which pay 15 points or so just for clicking yes or no.
Sometimes there are big payout surveys. If you qualify you can get paid out for doing 3 or 4 of them.
Even though it has been ranked very low in ratings, i find toluna very interesting. It has got the best interface, best rewards option to choose from. But the only issue is that they pay 4-5 times less for the same survey from other survey site. Yes! that's true.
i am pretty new to toluna, but in the 8 months i've been on the site i've been really pleased with the rewards available! there are some great little rewards at lower points, so even if you dont do too many surveys you can still earn goodies. last month i earned a $5 starbucks giftcard to treat myself to a frappuccino, and right before valentine's day i got a restaurant.com gift card to use on a rare date night with my husband.
i also just started taking surveys on my iphone, which i do when waiting at the doctor's office, at daycare when i'm picking my kids up, etc. i've also received some points for creating polls which was a nice surprise!
if you don't redeem your points in 1 year they delete them. very long surveys with small payout. definitely not worth the effort
Site sends surveys over and over. If I do not do a survey or quit, there is a reason. I quit and a half hour or so later the site interrupts what I am doing to get me to finish the survey. I have to stop and cancel the damn thing. They invite me to a survey many times, then say it's not available, then direct me to another survey that I have either already taken or quit because it's not applicable or whatever. I do not qualify enough either. Updating with more complaints. Today I got a survey that asked for a website I used for shopping. I gave them this and they said it was not a legit site. I even added the http in. Since there are frequently no good ways to complain on sites themselves, I am p*ssed enough to mention it here. So of course I just quit the survey. Even when they have NO new surveys for one to try, they STILL interrupt a half hour or so later with a notice to complete the survey. What someone else said in their review about "bait and switch" is true. They invite you to a survey that sounds interesting, then say sorry that's not available but here's another one, and it's frequently one I have not chosen to do because it's not applicable to me.
