Toluna Survey Review and Guidance

Toluna survey participants are eligible for rewards. Payment is made by mailing a check or points redeem for sweepstake entry [1Ticket=500 points], Vouchers for shopping or Billboard Music Download. It takes about 8 weeks for check delivery. The minimum payout is $20.00 = 60,000 points ($1=3,000 points). Toluna payments will be made in multiples of $20. For example, if you have a balance of $22, and request a check, you will receive payment for $20, and have $2 remaining in your account.

When you sign up for Toluna, you will receive 500 points. You will be awarded 600 points for each personal interest survey you complete, plus an additional 2,000 points upon completion of all of the personal interest surveys. Each time you invite a friend, your account will be credited with 500 points once your friend completes the registration.

For each survey you will earn between 1,000 and 20,000 points ($0.33 – $6.66). If you do not qualify for a survey, you will receive one entry to Toluna NEW, monthly cash sweepstakes offering more chances to win, with three lucky winners of $2,500, $1,000, and $500, plus two prizes of $250. The timing of credits for points or sweepstakes entries depends on the survey. For some surveys, credits are applied very quickly or within a few days; for others, the credits are applied after the survey has closed.

You can participate in the sponsored polls to earn points too. Sponsored polls consist of 1-5 questions and will earn you 15-150 points for your participation. According to my experience, I check the sponsored polls every day, sometimes I can earn 500 points per day just for click the polls. The credits for taking polls will be show up in your account quickly, so you can check right away!

You can earn points by post your opinion. If your opinion is 80 words or longer, you will earn 100 points. There is a limit of 5,000 points per month on points awarded for opinions. It will take about 1 week for the credit to show up in your account by giving opinions.

When points are credited to your account they will remain valid for two years. Your points will never expire all at once; instead points will expire two years after you originally earned them. So make sure to redeem your points once it reaches the minimum payout (60,000 points)!

According to my calculation, in a typical month, I can receive around 45 survey emails from Toluna. The survey emails are in standard format, include Topic, Survey ID, Survey Length and Reward. It is hard to give Toluna an average Survey hourly Salary because the surveys payment varies significantly, some is only $0.06 per hour while others $3.00 per hour or $6.00 to $50.00 per hour. So it is advisable that you count the payment before taking a survey.

You may use the simple formula I summarized below to count the value before taking their surveys:

For example:
Topic: ABC
Survey ID:1000000-US
Survey Length:X minutes
Reward:Y Points
0.02*Y/X = ? $ per hour

As a truthful survey website which can provide numourous survey opportunities, I strongly recommend Toluna to you!

  1. I think Toluna slow down the payments on paypal from 5 business days in the past to now 2 business weeks. I hope they can improve their service for members. 60000 points is hard to collect, need a long timeā€¦.

  2. Hello. I have a problem with Toluna Survey Panel. Can u explain the account status, accumulated viewed and approved? Every survey invitation seems different.

    • The Toluna survey panel is a little bit different. They do send you surveys but they also give you chances to earn points from doing other things. It is hard for me to explain your account status, I would suggest you contact their technical support. It is very normal that every survey invitation seem a bit different because the different requirement for different surveys.
