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+
Update with a question: Does anybody know if it required to verify account through phone before cashout?
I have to say I have been a Toluna member for a few weeks but I think it is like others panels. I mean, I think any panel is that spectacular, they just pay little quantities of money. Of course, Toluna could be better. It seems to be hard accumulate 60000 points just to cash 20 bucks but, so far, I earned 10000 points in just one day. I think it's a matter of time to see what happens
As many others have said, Toluna does a lot of bait and switching w surveys, I think I am taking a survey worth X pts and find out I get Y. They list ur pending surveys completed, but not point value allocated to them...hmmm...Havent had problems w cashing out, and when I called them out on surveys I thought I should have been awarded more points they gave them to me. I think they are borderline shady, but will bend if you complain. Not my favorite site to take surveys because I seldom qualify and points awarded are weak. I will amend to say that they still offer low value surveys but I seem to complete more than in the past. They do have monthly drawings that one will get a chance for each attempted survey, big whoop. Now they offer PayPal as a payout option, which I use and except for once, they pay off w/i a few days, certainly less than a week, so one does not have to wait a month for a check as I had in the past from this site. I upgraded my rating a half-star because they have improved some since my first review.
UPDATE **** Above is still true except that they are awarding points faster, in most cases, I get credit a day after I take most surveys, before, one had to wait up to several MONTHS to get credits! Bad thing; I had a hassle with PayPal, so I decided to request check for payouts in May and June, didnt receive checks till August!!!! They responded to my inquiries quickly but was typical corporate goobeldy-gook; "oh our accounting is transitioning", "we had an unusually high amount of check requests", blah, blah, blah. I requested PayPal, again on Aug 7 for payout and hit my account on Aug 17, so that was an improvement over the checks....I can't complain too much about them now, I still have issue why they cant list your pending points for completed surveys on your survey ledger. I dont feel I've been ripped off, but it seems shady they wont do this. If they can get their payouts moving a little faster I may up their rating I have, for now I'm leaving it at 3.5 *** s . They are not that bad, they have nice activities and are fun site to spend some time on, not just surveys...
worst surveys I have tried. 3 out of 4 times it lets you get half or more through a survey then kicks you off website.
I signed up mid July, cashed out with 75,000 points on August 6th for a $25 Amazon GC, it's August 15th and I almost have another 75,000 points. I received the gift card within one day too. When I cash out in a couple days hopefully I'll be lucky again with that. I qualify for about half the surveys. I do them while I watch tv at night. So far so good!
I was a member for 3 weeks, got on about 3-4 times a week and rarely qualified for anything. I'd spend an hour starting surveys and qualifying for 1 or 2 out of 10. I was wasting too much time!
