Does anyone work this site and have any luck? It used to be Greenfield and I reached cash out a time or so, but it was still hard as I never qualified for so many but still worth the effort, but then Tuluna took it over a fe wmonths ago... and changed the pay structure and now you have to earn points instead of cash and cash out for gift cards... which is fine, but for $10gift card you have to earn I beleive it was 75,000 points. 600 here, 900 there, 1,000 on this one, 3,000 on that one...it is going to take forever... and I still try them and havn't qualified for a single one since the take-over. I am thinking of just ending the relationship! Does anyone else play this survey site? What is your recent experience sine it changed and how are you doing?

Toluna isn't too bad for me, but I have been able to qualify for plenty of surveys since the changeover. They're definitely crafty with their points system. 60000 points = $20. That means the 900 point surveys they send are only worth 30 cents!! That's really low...worse than InboxDollars/SendEarnings pays for surveys! Another thing to watch out for is that your points expire after a while (I think it's a year) so there's a lot of pressure to cash out so you don't lose your money. On the plus side, they pay you to update your profiles and you can take the little surveys to make a few quick cents. You can also participate in discussions there, but it's only like three cents an opinion and it takes a long time to get credited for those.

I didn't know they expired! I doubt, if things stay as they are, that I will be able to make much. I have not qualified for a single survey since the change over. And 30 cents... odds are I can do them on a GPT site and if I qualify I get at least 50 for them. I will be checking this out a bit more, but I am not getting a good feeling about staying!

Im currently a member from Toluna. My personal experience with them has been mostly positive. they send you a notification everytime they have a new survey in which you can quality. Every survey is worth from 900 to 12000 points, in some rare cases they are worth up to 16,000 points. In order to cash out, You need a minimum of 60,000 points to ask for a $20 payment. In my opinion, it's fairly easy to earn some points, especially when you qualify for surveys that are worth a lot.

My experience used to be positive with Greenfield. But then Tuluna took over and since then... what's it been, few months now... I have not qualified for a single survey! I get the notices for 25 minutes for 6,000 points and such, and I take the survey and after 20 minutes, I am told I don't qualify. I know they need to "catagorize" responses for qualification but...come on... a 25 minutes survey and it takes the first 20 minutes to catagorize me enough to say I don't qualify? Just to suspicious for me. And I get the survey notifications at least 2 a day. I take them..I don't qualify. I know I won't for everything, but after a few weeks here and I have been taking them and not qualified for any? Think the writtings on the wall for that one!

I can understand that and let me tell you that you're not alone on that. It's happened to me at least 40% of the time that I take surveys. It's really frustrating because you take the time to fill out the first question for nothing.

I've used Toluna before - the UK one. I don't use it as much as I used to, but when I did, I managed to build up enough points to request a £10 discount voucher.

I've been with Greenfield for awahile and would be able to cash out in reasonable time. But now... I dont even qualify for any surveys! I do about 10-15 min on the survey only to be told I don't qualify for this survey. Thing is, more annoying than not qualifying is that it took would probably could be the entire survey before they tell me that...they got all my information for their survey and I got ZILCH!!!

My experience with them is not recent, but they have paid me three times in the past. I thought that 75,000 points was a $25 payout, though, and 60,000 points for a $20 check. I did just go over to check the site, though, and they still have points in my account, and a whole bunch of little polls that only require a yes or no answer and give a few points, so that might be a better way to get points than trying to take the longer surveys that you have to qualify for. dunno. I don't see any reason to quit the site unless the points expire.

I used to cash out reasonably often. It was one of my favorites. But now.. I dont' qualify for anything and need massive points to do mini cash out. Just wondered if it was just me.

yes i am on toluna too and i use this site really often...so this is a classic survey site where sometimes you need patience to collect all points and so request the payout but it is legit site and if you are able to complete often their surveys you can earn some money using toluna...in the past it was much better than now because it was faster to earn money now a little bit long...but anyway it didn't take much time and they pay you..so not bad as survey site!!
