Walmart Payment Update

Good morning members,

Currently, we are facing an inventory shortage for Walmart e-Gift Cards, and as a result are experiencing delays processing your requests.  We are very sorry for this inconvenience, and we are working to resolve the issue as fast as possible.

While we expect new inventory to be delivered within a week, we have decided to deactivate the Walmart option in our Rewards Center for the time being to prevent any further processing backlogs.  Existing requests will be processed as soon as our new inventory arrives, however, if you would like to cancel your existing request to select another option, please email us as TolunaRewards@toluna.com to let us know.  Please use the subject line Cancel Walmart Request, and we will have the points returned to your account.

Thank you for your understanding.  We will send a follow up notification once Walmart has been re-activated.

See you soon,
The Toluna Team

Reward Center Update

Hello members,

We’re writing today to let you know that we have decided to deactivate the $40 Sephora Gift Card option in our US Rewards Center once our current inventory is gone.

We thank you for your interest in this reward, and assure you that the $15 Sephora Gift Card option WILL remain available for 45,000 points.

Stay tuned for more Reward Center news heading your way in the coming months!

See you soon,
The Toluna Team

*Toluna is committed to fulfilling all outstanding payment requests that are currently in process.  Please do note however, that should requests exceed available inventory, priority fulfillment will be given to members with the earliest request dates. Additional requests will be cancelled, and members will be notified via email, and their points will be returned to their accounts.
