Has anyone ever made payout from Toluna? I've been on there a while but I'm trying to figure out if it's worth my wild to continue or not? So tell me what you think? And if you made it to payout how long it took you?

I haven't made a payout yet but they have merged with Greenfield surveys. I do get a lot of surveys from them. Lightspeed and Surveyhead are also very good. Surveyhead you get $5.00 just for signing up and after you do all the profiles you hit around $8.00. That one you log in and get surveys everyday I don't always qualify but I do like the fact I can check it and there is surveys on there. Survey sites I have pay out on: Lightspeed Survey Spot I just started getting back to doing them now that I have a computer at home. Before I had to go to the library so it was hard to really do anything with them. I also like Unique Rewards.

Yes, i've had vouchers from Lightspeed too but they seem to screen out older members. My mum has been with them for literally years and hasn't reached a thousand points yet. As soon as she ticks the 'over 65' box (or 'prefer not to say') it tells her they have enough/she doesn't fit the profile etc. I dont know why they send the surveys in the first place - they know her age. Maybe she should lie about her age???

I think all on-line surveys send the same ones to everyone which is why they get there quota filled so quickly. I am just guessing. I have made $20 on Lightspeed and it went right to paypal. She could try lying about her age it may work not sure.

I've not made anything on lightspeed or survey spot so I have long given up on those two. I often have the same problem as Wizzy mentioned you check the wrong box & it's sorry try another or the survey is filled.

I'm not a member of Toluna. However, I do like to take surveys online. I mostly do them through quickrewards though because there are other things to do on that site so I know that I'm making at least a few cents every single day with my activity on the site. They have several different survey routers on quickrewards and when I'm not terribly busy in the day I will try over and over on their routers until I get into a survey.

I'm 8,000 points from payout and then I'm done with Toluna. I used to be on Greenfield but quit when they offered mostly sweepstakes entries instead of cash. Toluna used to be profitable for me, too, but when the two joined forces my earnings almost stopped. Mysurvey.com used to be good, too, but I rarely get surveys from them anymore. Opinion Outpost is the best right now, for me. I make $10-25 a month there. I get 20 points $2.00) for referring friends so if you haven't joined, please let me refer you.

I agree I don't care for sweeps entries either. Though I did win once on a fluke from another place. I was on opinion outpost but I don't think I've done mysurvey, but I'm sure once I see it I'll recognize it. The only survey place I really make anything on is pinecone & that I make usually $6-12 a month.

yes i requested many times the payout on toluna and i always received my money..it is true that it takes time to collect all points and so reaching a good payout but it is legit site so you will receive surely your money you need just patience because the process sometimes isn't short!!

I am less than 300 points from reaching my first payout, and all of a sudden I haven't gotten any polls for over three days. Don't know if it's a glitch or a scam, but I am not happy at the moment.

Not yet. As a 16 year old, I do not have a lot of survey opportunities. I do have time on my hands to earn extra money even if short and comes in a long time.

I just joined in the last month. I'm not too impressed so far. I was invited to a longer survey that was going to be worth $20. The day of the survey they had issues and noone could take it. They then rescheduled it. When I tried to take it again I had to install a few things, and was there a minute before the scheduled time, but it told me that the survey had already started.

I have been a member of Toluna for over a year now. They used to be really great until they merged with Greenfield. Since the merge, the minimum points you need to have before cashout has doubled. It seems like it's taking me forever to reach that goal. I'm about halfway there but once I get there I won't be sticking around with them. There are plenty of other survey sites that are better and worth my time.

Yes, I've had vouchers from them but it does take a while because I'm not very active on the site itself. I go to the sponsored polls and mainly pick out the ones that are offering more than the 15points. it also takes a long time for the vouchers to arrive. There do seem to be more surveys coming through lately.
