The Toluna community offers our millions of 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. We provide tons of options in our Rewards Center, including a fun instant win game called Gifties.
Gifties are a virtual gift that you can send to yourself, or a friend. They represent real products. You exchange a small amount of points for the virtual item, and at the same time play for a chance to win the real item. The winner is determined by a computer algorithm that chooses random winners. New Gifties are added every month, you can find out about these via announcements on our blog.
Scroll through our various options of prizes. To play the game, just select the Giftie, type your username or a friend’s username and click send! Once you click send, you’ll instantly know whether or not you have won. It’s as simple as that! Play until you win, or play when you are feeling lucky. You never know!

Back by popular demand, we’re asking you to tell us what to add next in the Gifties catalog! This month, we’re running a special 2-part promotion, where our members get to tell us what the next Giftie should be.
To participate in this month’s contest, simply visit our Toluna topic and post your suggestion* for what our next Gifties item should be. The member with the winning suggestion will see their submission added to the Gifties catalog by October 30th, and will be awarded 15,000 points!
We’ll be accepting your Gifties suggestions up until 5pm EST on Friday, October 17th, 2014. The Toluna Team will then review all submissions and select our top 5 choices by October 20th. As a special bonus, we will award 1,000 points to the members who provide us those top 5 choices!
For part 2 of this contest, the top 5 will be announced to you through our blog and a Toluna Team poll. From here the decision is all yours. The suggestion with the most votes wins! Just be sure to cast your vote by Monday October, 27th, because the winner will be announced on Friday, October 30th!

The first round of the competition required members to suggest a Giftie item in our contest topic. In the second round, Toluna picked the top 10 suggestions, and asked our community to choose the best name. The poll was closed this morning and we have a winner…
