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).

I just joined Toluna. So far I have been doing okay survey wise. For the people complaining about pay it's listed on their website. If you had read the Q&A first you would have seen it stated so that you would have none before hand the waiting period. I haven't cashed out yet but it states points pend UP TO 6 weeks, could be sooner and the wait period for rewards is 6 weeks which could also be sooner. I guess if your not in a hurry for your money, Toluna is the site for you!
Update: I have reached OVER 30,000 points and I just joined December 26th (would have reached 30,000 points sooner but i also do other survey sites). I have qualified for 90% of the surveys I have gotten already. At the rate i'm going, i'm looking to reach 90,000 points for a $30 paypal payment soon! Still recommending this site!
Most of surveys aren't "suitable" for you or reach the number of participants.... after completing a great part of them!!!! They give peanuts for endless surveys. You need thousands of points to get any reward. Such a waste of time... Not recommended!
Gave up due to needing hundreds of thousands of points to cash out anything decent (why not just use a simpler points system?), frequent screenouts and tedious surveys. Would take a lot for me to go back there.
Toluna states on their website that it can take up to 8 weeks for delivery of rewards after they've been requested i didn't wait that long i requested a paypal cash out and received it with in just a few days that includes the weekend there very fast this was my first cash out using this site but i will say they are good and fast the only problem i've had with this site is i get a message from them when i finish a survey that it has filled up right when i get to the last few questions it doesn't happen all the time and this could be over looked but i had to let everyone know.
Payment number 2 was also speedy made it to me before it they said it would be there. They are fast and so far there on time or before usually before. Nothing bad to say about them but here's a update on them i was doing a survey for them after 30 minute's it said i didn't qualify now that's bad management it really has me wondering about this site.
Edit: Toluna more then makes up for their long surveys, they have a lot that does take more then 5 to 10 minutes and some that doesn't take more then a minute they also have questions that pay 15 points but they don't take very long well under a minute. So what are you waiting for. They pay good.
I am a bit surprised that I don't see much higher ratings for Toluna because they are hands down, My #1 site! I've been a member about 2 years now and since the beginning I consistently earn at least 1 gift card on Toluna every month but usually more. I have fun on Toluna and they really reward the members who post quality content. I earn so many bonus points on a daily basis and my points rack up quickly. I have received free test items to try out and review, I have been member of the week 4 times, I have also been on the content creators monthly list for quite a long time now. And I earned lots of bonus points from all of these things. I have never had a small problem with payments either! It's like anything else in life....you get back what you put into things! I spend a couple hours a day on Toluna and I am rewarded and recognized for everything I do.
