To sign up for Toluna, all you need to do is log on to the website, create an account and provide some basic information about yourself. (Remember to check the ‘opt-in’ for surveys box so that Toluna will notify you of new opportunities.) Make sure that your profile information is accurate and up to date so that you’re always invited to participate in the surveys you qualify for.
Once you click the magic ‘register’ button, you’ll be sent a confirmation email in order to finalize your registration. Clicking the link confirms your spot in the Toluna community!
Plus, when you sign up for Toluna, you’ll receive 500 free points! What are points, you ask? We’ll get to that shortly.
Welcome to the Toluna team! As a member, you can now take part in a number of survey and product testing opportunities. While these offers won’t be available on a full-time basis, Toluna is growing by the minute and opportunities come down the pipeline on a fairly regular basis.
When a survey comes up that requires your input, you’ll be invited via email to weigh in. Keep in mind that surveys are known to fill up quite quickly. Be sure to check your email inbox regularly so you don’t miss out!
Once you receive an invitation, simply follow the instructions and answer all the questions that are provided. Don’t just write down what you think the company wants to hear. Be yourself! Be sure to provide honest and candid feedback. Tell them how you really feel!
Each survey is different, so there is no telling how long it will take you to complete one. Depending on their length, surveys will generally earn you between 1,000 and 20,000 points.
You may also be given opportunities to test products and services on Toluna. When a testing opportunity comes up, enter your name into the draw. Of the names entered, Toluna will randomly select a number of members to receive the product by mail and answer a series of questions about it.
Now on to the important stuff: points. Toluna offers points in exchange for the time you spend taking surveys and testing products. These points are Toluna’s form of currency. 3,000 Toluna points is equal to $1.
Points can be redeemed for all kinds of cool stuff. Typical rewards include: sweepstakes tickets for new gadgets or getaways, gift certificates for a large selection of stores, or even cold hard cash! Once your points balance starts adding up, what you receive as a reward and when you choose to redeem you points is completely up to you!
You can redeem your points for money or other neat prizes. If opting for cash, you have the choice to be paid either by check or PayPal. Payments are only made in multiples of $20, so, for both payment methods, you must have a minimum balance of 60,000 points, or $20, in order to request and receive payment.
If you choose to be paid by check, you can expect to receive your check approximately 8 weeks after requesting payment. You should always confirm the address you have on file before requesting payment to avoid any possible delays.
Unfortunately, your points won’t be around forever. Points will remain valid for one year only. If the points have not been used within this time, they will automatically expire and be deleted from your account. So be sure to keep an eye on them! You can view details on your current points balance at any time by logging on to the website.
