Toluna Surveys Scam or Real

Toluna Surveys Scam or Real

Hey all,  Staying on topic for survey sites next I am going to let you know about my experience with Toluna Surveys.

Can you make any amount of money with this survey company?  Let us see what is offered.

Toluna Survey Site

Survey Sisurvey boardtes are one way people look to make money on the internet and Toluna is one in a long list of them that you can join for free.


With this particular survey site, you do not earn cash rewards for completing surveys that you must pre-qualify for instead, you earn points which are redeemable for gift cards.

The lowest amount of points to start redeeming is 30,000 which earns you a $10.00 gift card for either or Rixty (whom I have never heard of).

From there points accumulate for higher cards as listed below:

  1. 45,000 points – $25.00 Restaurant Gift Card
  2. 60,000 points – $20.00 Red Box Gift Card
  3. 75,000 points – $25.00 Fandango, Overstock, Global Hotel, Tango, or Dell Gift Card
  4. 95,000 points – $30.00 PayPal (which is available in $30.00 increments only)
  5. 150,000 points – $50.00 Cheesecake Factory Gift Card

If you do not qualify for a survey you are entered into the sweepstakes drawing for 1,000,000 points to be credited to your account.

How to Earn Points

Toluna will send you an email when surveys are available and how many points they are worth if you qualify to take them.

You can earn points doing other things on their site such as playing games and participating in polls (I have not done either of these so not sure if they are worth the points you earn).

For the length of time you spend doing the surveys it seems to work out to a possible 50 points per minute depending on your internet speed. The surveys are usually multiple choice answers that checking a box is all that is required.

I find that the time involved for the reward is not worth it for myself there are more convenient ways to spend my time with things that can yield a higher reward financially.

Recommendation Scam or Real

woman with question marks above her headIf you are a person who likes to take surveys giving your opinion on a wide array of topics for peanuts then, by all means, sign up to do surveys for Toluna.

But if you find your time more valuable and do not want to just give away your opinions then I suggest you find some other means of adding to your financial situation.

Do I think Toluna is a scam, no I do not it does offer surveys that the feedback is helping someone, but their compensation plan is lacking for the people who invest the amount of time to take the surveys gives up?

Some of you might love earning gift cards by doing the surveys but with what they offer it takes approximately 3 months worth of invested time before you are able to make enough points to redeem them for a gift card of $10.00.



Toluna is a legitimate survey site it just does not compensate for your time very well. They are not out to scam anyone, qualifying for the surveys is hard so that is the reason for the length of time it takes to earn just a $10.00 gift card.

It is my goal to investigate as many survey sites as possible to see what they are about then come back here all in my website and report on them to you.
