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+
NOT WORTH EVEN 1 STAR !!!!!
payout takes more than 8 weeks . RIDICULOUS!!!! I guess is it possible to complain about it somewhere?
It's the worst survey site that pays you like a beggar.
It will take minimum 6-8 months or a year,just to redeem $10 Paypal money. Also, There is NO AMAZON COUPONS., JUST A COUPLE OF USELESS WEBSITE'S E-GIFT VOUCHER ALL AVAILABLE. WORST SITE.
REDEMPTION TIME - MINIMUM 4 MONTHS TO 6 MONTHS.
At the end of September 2016, I did a survey for Toluna on Family Size Tea Bags for Ice Tea. I have the original letter that came with the study in which it promises to pay me 10,000 in Toluna currency. I have yet to be paid by them, even after calling them 3 times and emailing them 3 times. Pay up you schmucks! This was not an easy study.
I have been a member of this site for quite a while. I just cancelled. Every time I got close to having enough points to cash in, they deleted points. Definitely not worth your time.
I've used Toluna for about 18 months and it has slowly got worse, with fewer surveys (that I qualify for) and slower payouts (at least 3 weeks after the request date, often longer). In the first few months I managed to hit the minimum payout threshold about once per month, but now it's about once every 2-3 months. The surveys that I'm emailed are rarely available (even if I click on them immediately after the email arrives...) and those that I do attempt screen me out after wasting my time completing the profiling questions. The website is pretty rubbish as the list of available surveys never seems to be updated properly - you can easily go round in circles trying surveys that are apparently available, only to be told that they're not. Infuriating!
But, and it's a big BUT, if you have a lot of time, patience and tenacity then you can get a reasonable payout over the year. Probably too much effort for many people, though.
