Important Payment Change!

Hello members,

After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to remove Check payments as a reward option, effective August 31st. With this date in mind, you still have just over a week to cash out your points for a $25 check payment (75,000 points). The decision comes after determining that with the rising costs of processing check payments, combined with decreasing demand, we can no longer support offering this option.

We understand that this change may come as a surprise, and do apologize for any inconvenience. However, we are happy to announce that PayPal will continue to be available to our members as an alternate cash payment option, and we currently have 46 gift card options available ranging from 20,000 up to 150,000 points.

All check requests currently in process will certainly be honored and mailed as quickly as possible. If you have an existing check request which you would like to cancel, please contact the Help Desk or TolunaRewards@toluna.com and we will work with you to have the points returned to your account.

Once again, you may continue to request a check payment through August 31st, 2015. Thank you to everyone for your understanding, and please check back soon for more Reward Center news.

See you soon,
The Toluna Team

Toluna Payment Updates!

Hello members,

We have great news for you!  Last week, we posted about delays we were experiencing processing payments including Walmart and Amazon gift cards, and check payments.

Well, we’re happy to announce that things are moving forward!  Inventory is back in stock for Walmart, Amazon US and Amazon.ca and all outstanding requests have been processed, along with CVS Gift Card requests that were also a few days delayed. With regards to checks, we are still working to get caught up, but would like to let you know that all payments requested on or before June 14th will be mailing out this Thursday, August 6th.

We understand you work hard to earn your incentives, and we appreciate your patience when delays occur.  We are working to continue processing outstanding check requests as fast as possible, and to avoid issues like this in the future.

Thank you to everyone for your patience, please contact the help desk with any questions, and check your Rewards page for your CVS, Walmart and Amazon rewards.  For our Amazon.ca requesters, your codes have been delivered via email.

Thank you again,
The Toluna Team
