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+
used to be best and favourite panel until all went wrong, during the query I provided all the info needed in a bid to release my account all prove abortive I guess people should keep away from them if you are having great time with them now prepare for a nightmare, they cancel all my point after so much effort.
First, I get screened out a lot and feel I should be. I'm older (71), retired, Ph.D. no health problems, no children in my home. Since I have spare time thought surveys would be fun, so reviewed all the sites I could on the "best" the "top Ten" survey sites. Ended up with three: My Survey, Globaltestmarket and Toluna. Observations: they all seem to be down at the same time, use the same software programs, sometimes I'm re-directed to another survey site and usable points aren't what is advertised. Toluna has been the best over the last two months. I redeemed points and within seven days had my certificate. The site automatically re-directs me until there are no more surveys to complete. Point values seem reasonable. I'm now at four weeks an counting on Global certificate. My Survey is slow and doesn't have as many surveys to complete and their point totals more un-realistic. That's my two cents.
Good Survey and PAID. But the rate is a little low though :)
I have been with them for years and i was recently trying to build my points in order to cash out with pay pal and then all of a sudden they took points away from me. I wasted time and energy building points and i am pissed. I am closing my account as soon as i receive 2 useless gift cards that i do not need, but i rather they did not get to keep the money. I will kiss the rest of my points good bye.
Toluna is one of the worst survey panels out there.. at first they may reward you, but as time goes on, they invoke their "one year" rule and start taking points away. The problem is, they don't wait one year. they start taking them away as soon as you get close to a threshold, so you never get there. I had cashed out last October, received payment on November 1 (at least that's the date on the stub). I was at 65,000 points or so, completed a 3000 point survey this week. Went to look to see if it was credited, the account which just the day before read 65,000 and change now read 54,000 and change with 12,000 and change deducted for no reason. They pulled the same thing last year. I have also had the experience of hitting the submit button after finishing a survey, only to get a screen popping up that the survey just filled up. Bottom line, this is a company profiting from you, with no regard for your time. It's just not right. Stay away, you are wasting your time with this site.
