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).
The points system is dumb why not make it simpler? They get you through most of the survey,get their answers and tell you that you are not qualified so,they are cheap and I have better sites that don't waste my time.So,I would say don't waste yours here.
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.
I hit my target of 60,000+ points and got my $20 payout in about 3 days.
It takes some time to collect enough points to get rewarded but with all the other surveys it will pay in time.
So far so good. Points are good if and when you qualify for the surveys. If you don't qualify they will usually toss you a minimum amount of points anyways. Rewards seem decent enough. (haven't redeemed yet though so no opinion on how they are for that). Can do quick polls and make your own as well.
I am finding it impossible to get my rewards from these people. I asked for vouchers on 1st May and have asked them several times to send these. Each time I am fobbed off with some excuse. I can only think that these people have a serious cash flow problem and think that the easy way out is to refuse to pay the debt to people that do all the work.
I would suggest that you do not waste your time with these surveys. I know I will not again!
