Temporary PayPal Removal

Hello members,

We have been experiencing technical difficulties with our US PayPal processing system over the last week, and have decided to remove the option temporarily while we update our system.  The option will be unavailable beginning today, August 31st, and will be returned no later than Monday, September 14th.

We apologize for the temporary delay, and in order to continue offering you a cash payment option in the meantime, we will continue to offer check payments beginning at 75,000 points for a $25 payment.  Please note our August 12th blog regarding check payments, and stay tuned for updates on that option.

For members with PayPal payments currently pending, they will be processed within our normal timelines.

Thank you,
The Toluna Team

Toluna Recipe Contest – Week 4

Hello again members,

1 We’ve come to week 4 of our Toluna Recipe Contest. One last time, on August 3rd, we launched a month-long contest challenging you to post a recipe using 3 specific ingredients. We’ve seen a lot of creativity, and fun recipes this month, and thank everyone for joining in!

Once again, here are the rules:

  1. Create a topic with the title “Toluna Recipes: Week 4” by Friday, August 28th
  2. Post your recipe, giving it a title and tell us how to make it
  3. Include a relevant photo of the dish and/or required ingredients
  4. Be sure your recipe includes all of the required ingredients!

All qualified entrants will receive 1,500 points!

Remember – the dish only needs to include the 3 ingredients, not consist only of the 3!

Now, it’s time to make the Toluna community hungry! Here are your ingredients for the week:


Good luck members, and have fun!

August 19th Webinar Q&A

Good afternoon members,


Thank you to those members who attended our webinar on Wednesday, August 19th, 2015. As promised, I have answered all of your questions here. If you missed this one, don’t worry! We will hold another in a few months. Stay tuned for details.

1. How do you earn bonus points?

Rank up bonuses are given at the discretion of the Toluna staff. We don’t reward everyone every day. We scour the dashboard looking for high quality content. Here is some information on rank up bonuses.

2. Can another adult in the household join Toluna?

Yes, members of the same household can sign up for Toluna.

3. Do we get a notification when our points are about to expire?

There will be a reminder, on the My Points page, to let you know how many points are expiring and when.

4. Do you get any points for answering user created polls/topics?

We do not give out rank up points for members answering other member’s content.

5. How do you get chosen to Test Products? I have signed up for several but never get chosen

Product testers are chosen at random, and also based on demographics that our clients are looking for. These are very popular and we have limited quantities. Please be patient with us for this option.

6. How often are these webinars? If already attend, can we attend again?

These webinars are offered every few months. We encourage members to attend all webinars, since we do give you a lot of information.

More information and Q&A blogs from past webinar sessions: May February January | December | November | October

I would personally like to thank everyone at Toluna for allowing me to take some of the most amazing and stimulating surveys I ever had. Just checked my email this morning to see that I was one of the 10 users to win the [1] million points sweepstakes and was so surprised and happy. My birthday is coming up on the 25th and what an excellent b-day present…Really appreciate what everyone at Toluna had done and continue to do for each of you have created something unbelievably remarkable. Most survey sites I have experienced are just that, surveys and nothing else. Each Toluna visit in itself is a unique and different experience. Thank you for providing me with these wonderful experiences
