Holiday Season Payment Update!

Greetings members,

As the holiday season approaches, we are already receiving a higher than normal volume of payment requests. While we are doing everything we can to continue processing your payments within our normal timelines, we wanted to alert you to potential processing delays as we assess our current demands, and work to re-stock inventory for the coming months.

In particular, we want to point out that inventory of the following rewards has already begun selling out, and while we are in the process of ordering additional e-gift cards, we ask for your patience as it may take a bit longer than anticipated to receive your rewards:

Amazon.com
Target
Starbucks
Walmart

As soon as our new stock arrives, we will work to fill all outstanding requests in the order that they were received, and will have all of your payments processed as soon as possible.

Please do keep in mind that as we get closer to the end of the year, it may take longer for our vendors to fill orders for new gift cards as well, so, to ensure that you receive your payments before the holidays, we recommend getting your requests in early!

We do thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy time of year. Please keep checking back with us for more news and announcements from Toluna.

Thank you,
The Toluna Team

*If you have an outstanding payment request that you would like to cancel in lieu of the above details, please contact our support team and provide the reward name, and your request date and let them know you would like the payment cancelled. Your points will be returned to your account so you may select an alternate payment option.

Toluna.com Essentials: Ways to Earn More Points, Part 1

The Toluna community offers our members a chance to express their opinions. In our series of “Toluna Essentials” we’ll go over all the techniques you can use to get the most out of your experience with Toluna. In this week’s edition, we will go over one of the ways to earn more points, specifically small point polls.

1

The first place to find small point polls is to scroll through the Toluna homepage in search of these salmon colored content blocks. These are highlighted surveys that usually offer anything from 15-2000 points.For example, in the picture above you see a bar labeled “Food” for up to 45 points.

2

You can also easily access these by going to the recommended tab on the homepage.

3

Another way to stay updated with short polls, is to follow the QuickvotesUS account that constantly posts 15 point polls like the one pictured above.

Stay tuned! Next week we will post MORE tips and tricks to earn more points.

Best,
