Survey Taking Experience

Additional Ways to Earn Points

Besides participating in online surveys, members of Toluna Influencers 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).

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 - 50,000 points each, and special surveys could offer even more!

Rewards Process

Toluna Influencers states on their website that it can take up to 8 weeks for delivery of rewards after they've been requested. However, many members receive virtual gift cards and PayPal payments within a couple weeks of request. All rewards are redeemed through Toluna Influencers' “Rewards Center” from the community menu on your profile. As stated above, rewards include gift cards to Best Buy, Groupon, overstock.com, Redbox, PayPal, The Cheesecake Factory and more. When points are awarded, they are valid for 12 months.

low pay

January 10, 2020 by Curtis from United States

Pays such a little amount for each survey, same as a lot of other sites.

No Surveys

January 7, 2020 by Gershom from South Africa

They seem to ran out of surveys. They should at least show total list of the surveys per day available and done.

Toluna Influencers responded to this review on January 8, 2020

Hello Gershom,

Thank you for leaving this review. We are sorry to hear that your experience with Toluna has been underwhelming.

We want to let you know that the number of available surveys may vary from day to day, depending on our clients' needs. Hence, there may be days with many opportunities to provide your feedback, but also days with fewer available surveys.

There are multiple ways to access the available surveys:
- directly from your Toluna.com account by hovering the mouse over “Surveys” menu in the header and then clicking on Survey Center or by clicking the “Start Survey” button right next to your profile;
- from the Sponsored Content area where you can vote on sponsored polls or start a survey;
- notifications in the top right of the page also indicate when new surveys you can qualify for are available;
- from the survey invitations you receive via e-mail.

If you feel our response does not apply to you, I would like to follow up on this personally and provide an explanation as soon as possible. Would you mind sharing your username with me or send me an email at https://za.toluna.com/contactus with the following as subject: SurveyPolice review - follow-up?

Best wishes,
Katy
waste of time

December 9, 2019 by Don from United States

I joined this panel after reading the reviews on survey police. As far as the frequency of surveys, they do a good job. I also qualified and completed a fair number of surveys. However, no matter how many points I earned, I never got close enough to earn a PayPal reward. My points were regularly deducted with the excuse they had expired. Also, no notice was given my points were about to expire. In order to even get a PayPal reward, you have to amass 90000 points! Don't bother. You'll never get even close without losing your points.

Toluna Influencers responded to this review on December 10, 2019

Hello Don,

Thank you so much for sharing your complex review with us and the community! We are sorry that your experience with Toluna so far has been a mixed bag, and your feedback is highly appreciated! We would love the opportunity to provide a service that is up to the standard you expect if you gave us another chance.

The points expiration policy is part of our loyalty program and its sole purpose is to make sure that our most active and engaged users are most rewarded. Points only expire after 12 months from the date they are earned, and on average, active users can redeem multiple rewards in that time. To make sure you can use your points in time, we inform you of how many points are about to expire via a black banner in ‘Your Points’ section. You have 28 days after the appearance of this banner to use the expiring points.

Besides our PayPal option, there are various other rewards available at different thresholds so that both very active members as well as the ones who are casually active can easily request a reward. You can check out all the available options at https://us.toluna.com/rewards.

If you have any questions or other suggestions you would like to share, please don’t hesitate to reach us at https://us.toluna.com/contactus!

Warm regards,
Toluna Team
Bad Surveys

December 1, 2019 by Lor from United States

Toluna has slipped way down the list recently. You now need 95k points for a lousy $25. The Surveys are few and far between. If you are fortunate enough to receive a Survey, odds are good you wont be able to complete it. They have a serious issue with collecting 99% of the Survey info and then, magically, the Survey has filled up or you receive an error message of some sort. No points awarded. Its ridiculous and is a chronic problem of late.

Toluna Influencers responded to this review on December 2, 2019

Hi Lor,

Thank you for taking the time to share your review! We are extremely sorry to hear that your experience is not at the level we would have liked.

We offer many reward options at different thresholds so that both very active members as well as the ones who are casually active can easily request a reward. We currently have multiple rewards on the site, that you can easily check at https://us.toluna.com/rewards.

We want to let you know that, indeed, the number of available surveys may vary from day to day, depending on our clients' needs. Hence, there may be days with many opportunities to provide your feedback, but also days with fewer available surveys.

Besides the email invitations you receive there are multiple ways to access the available surveys:
-directly from the Survey Center in your Toluna.com account;
-from the Sponsored Content area where you can vote on sponsored polls or start a survey;
-notifications in the top right of the page also indicate when new surveys you can qualify for are available;

To increase your chances of receiving better targeted surveys with the highest chances to qualify, we recommend you always keep your profile surveys up to date. Your Profile Surveys can be accessed directly from the "Survey Center" or via the Surveys menu in the header: "Surveys" -"Profile Surveys". For each completed personal profile survey, you are awarded 100 points. Remember to update your profiles every 6 months to earn more points and get better targeted surveys.

As you know, for each survey there are specific profiles and volume of responses needed. To optimize our user experience, targeting usually happens in the first half of the survey. When you don't qualify for a survey the points are not rewarded, as your responses are not used in the final research findings and we don’t get paid for them either by our clients. However, if there was any survey for which you got this type of message at the end of the questionnaire, don’t hesitate to contact us with the details so we can investigate.

When contacting our customer service at https://us.toluna.com/contactus, please make sure to send as many details as possible about the issue you’re experiencing, for example the survey number and a screenshot of the issue. By supplying this relevant data our customer support team can better assess the situation and find a solution quicker for you to have a better experience on Toluna.com!

We really appreciate a lot your membership and your feedback!

Best wishes,
Toluna Team
Points expired - Not a good panel for Greek people

November 6, 2019 by Anna from Greece

I wanted to reach 65000 points to get a paypal reward and I realized that my points expired because I didn't redeem them (I had reached 30000 points and as you understand, if the points are expired every x months, and there are not many surveys for greek users, I will never reach 65000 points). I will delete my account as it's waste of time.

Toluna Influencers responded to this review on November 7, 2019

Dear Anna,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us and the community. We are extremely sorry to hear that your experience is not as satisfactory as we would have liked.

We want to let you know that the number of available surveys may vary from day to day, depending on our clients' needs. Hence, there may be days with many opportunities to provide your feedback, but also days with fewer available surveys. To increase your chances of receiving better targeted surveys with the highest chances to qualify, we recommend you always keep your profile surveys up to date. Your Profile Surveys can be accessed directly from the "Survey Center" or via the Surveys menu in the header: Surveys > Profile Surveys. For each completed personal profile survey, you are awarded 100 points. Remember to update your profiles every 6 months to earn more points and get better targeted surveys.

The points you earn don't expire in a short amount of time, but after 16 months from the date they are added to your account. We know how hard our Toluna Influencers work to earn points, but please note that you are notified in your account with a pop up bar on the top of the page with 28 days before they expire so that you may get the chance to use them.
At the moment, we have many reward options available at different thresholds, so that both very active members as well as the ones who are active less frequently can easily request a reward.

Our support team remains at your disposal if you have any questions or concerns. Simply submit a ticket at https://gr.toluna.com/contactus and provide as many relevant details as possible so that our colleagues may assist you accordingly.

Best wishes,
Toluna Team
