Toluna General Information

Toluna

Toluna
Toluna is a worldwide survey community which is owned and operated by market research powerhouse, Toluna Group. Toluna has millions of survey members who participate in a variety of market research opportunities and influence the future of the biggest brands worldwide!

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.

Rewards Process
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).

"Somethings changed"
April 26, 2017 by David from United States

I have been waiting almost a month for a payment and this was never the case in the past. Very disappointed with Toluna.


"Got to be the slowest Payment?"
April 06, 2017 by Doug from United Kingdom

As commented by many other reviewers recently (Feb/Mar 2017), Toluna are becoming one of the worse survey companies.
Their recompense at first seems great (wow, 2400 points) but then when you go to cash in you find that in reality they are paying about 50% of the rate paid by Valued Opinions, Global TestMarket & My Survey
Then, when you consider the time to actually get your reward paid it becomes absurd and barely worth the time.
Valued Opinions and even the Dreaded "My Survey" can manage in less than a week, so why does it take Toluna more than a month?
I complained about a 5 week delay and was told "It takes up to 8 weeks (now upgraded to 10 (ten) weeks to dispatch payments because we have many requests and we process the rewards periodically. Therefore, the processing date depends on the number of requests we have, the number of vouchers that need to be processed, the batch they came in, different suppliers for different voucher types, etc"
I can't believe that they have that many more (or if even the same number) of cashin requests as their competitors, it just shows their disregard for their panellists, it's a shame they don't apply their favourite email subject line "Take a few minutes and be part of the change!" to the reimbursement side.
I really wonder whether I can be bothered to remain on their books, I certainly would advise any prospective joiners to seriously consider the sense in joining!
If you complete a well paying survey and claim reward AS SOON AS POINTS ARE CREDITED, it could take nearly ½ YEAR before you actually receive your reward, so just don't bother


"Ripped off"
April 04, 2017 by derry from Ireland

Did surveys and applied for rewards last July.....Store vouchers arrived (end of Dec) after many emails and requests. The vouchers were worthless, the store advised me they were valueless. What an embarrassment when I went to pay for goods !!. . Since then toluna have made a dozen excuses for non payment. Now we are in April and still no payment.......Anyone to help ?


"Huge waste of your time "
April 04, 2017 by Vivienne from United States

I gave up on this site after just a couple of months. It takes a whopping 30,000 points to get a $10 gift card. Since they also limit the amount of surveys you can take, it is a big fat waste of time.
