Some surveys may offer a unique experience such as being a video survey or a diary style survey.

Survey Taking Experience

A least favourite survey site

April 12, 2021 by Edwin from Australia

The strike rate on offered surveys is very low and on too many occasions, the surveys are not credited on completion. Any complaints are met with poor Customer service. The reward rate is also poor. I persevered on and off over several years but several days ago, I was not able to log in. On lodging a query, I was informed that my account was cancelled for violation of their terms - no explanation. Therefore, I requested the reasons so as not to repeat the error. The rude response basically restated: CODE VIOLATION, ALL REWARDS FORFEITED (money taken). End of story. In my country this action is probably against the law. Better of right out of the site and advising others not to get involved. There are plenty of other sites which treat their members more respectfully.

Used to be a decent site

April 12, 2021 by Mike from United States

I was a Toluna user for many years and thought they were a decent site except it took forever to redeem rewards, All of sudden they suspended my account for violating something but I have no idea what. Since I have been doing the same thing on their site it made no sense, If they suspend someone they need to provide exactly why and not just quote the TOS in general. I can not recommend this service,

Surveys

April 1, 2021 by Sharon from United States

This has never been even close to one of my favorite survey sites because it was close to impossible to qualify for a survey; maybe one every six weeks or more, but I decided to keep it because I was in no hurry. I wish I had read the contract better because I recently had 8,000 pts deleted because they had 'expired'!! This is how this site gets something for nothing. I was going for a $25 gift certificate and was getting close, so I unsubscribed and I would advise others to not deal with this site. Total rip-off!!

Hi Sharon,

Thank you kindly for sharing your detailed feedback with us, we really appreciate the gesture and the honesty. It saddens us to hear you are dissatisfied with your experience on Toluna.

It is never in our intention to make our influencers feel like they are deceived in any way, and we'd like to sincerely apologize if some occurrences have made you feel like this would have been the case. This being said, please rest assured that our points expiration policy is in no way meant to deduct points from our users as a way to keep them from accessing rewards; its sole purpose is to engage our influencers and encourage them to be constantly active, while earning more points and enjoying the multiple reward options we offer. We have reward options at different thresholds so that even the members who just casually complete our surveys can benefit from our rewards.

We consider we are diligent in communicating this information both on the site (in the terms and conditions accepted upon registration and in our FAQs), as well as a notification in members’ accounts, and that is sufficient for members to be well informed and at the same time not feel overwhelmed with repetitive information from all channels.

We are always happy to help our influencers benefit from the best possible experience on Toluna, based on their expectations and needs. If there is anything we can do for you, please don't hesitate to let us know at https://us.toluna.com/contactus.

All the best,
Katy

Hello and thank you very much for sharing your valuable feedback! I am very sorry to hear your experience on Toluna was not at the level we would have liked.

The number of available surveys may vary from day to day, depending on our clients' needs. Hence, there may be days with several opportunities to provide your feedback, but also days with fewer or even no available surveys. Nonetheless, you can still earn some bonus points and have some fun at the same time with our Games section at http://gr.toluna.com/games or by voting on sponsored polls. We also offer reward options at different thresholds so that both very active members as well as the ones who are casually active can request a reward.

We remain available at https://gr.toluna.com/contactus should you decide to give us another chance, and we'd very much appreciate the opportunity to change your experience for the better!

All the best,
Katy
Good But Slow

January 10, 2021 by Jacqueline from United States

This is a great site for surveys. But you have to earn 95,000 points for $30. And it takes almost 30 days to receive Pay Pal payments at first. Once they know you are a legitimate survey taker, they pay out within a few days, weekends don't count.
Although I may have found this site through Toluna and been offered points to review it, my review would be no different!
I gave them 4 stars because they have tons of surveys all the time. As far as the rest of my review goes, it's quite accurate. You have to make a lot of points and they take a long time to pay in the beginning. If you hang in there it's and are a good survey taker, it's worth your time!
