Hi there and thank you for reading Survey Royal. Today I want to talk about a specific survey panel called Toluna. In
this review I am going to tell you what I liked, What I did not like and I also have a free surprise near the end of this article. Toluna is also a survey panel where you can take surveys for money and is Toluna save to use?

More on Toluna
To answer you in short Toluna is not a scam and read on to understand why I say this. This is a survey panel has a couple of features that a few panels have such as a community where you can create your own polls. You can make money by filling in surveys, participating in polls and product testing. Product testing is a good way to make money from a survey panel and it can also be very fun to do.
What I liked
- You earn from $0.5 up to $6 points per survey. The longer the survey, the more points you will get per survey.
- Registered with a positive rating from the BBB (Better Business Bureau).
- Get 500 points just for signing up.
- Different methods to earn. You can join in product testing, mini polls.
- They also have a referral program
What I did not like
- Points expire after a year. Sometimes we want to save that money for when times get tough, but when you find out that your points has expired, it can really be a huge disappointment. I do not know why this is but it surely is not nice. Maybe they have a good reason for this.
Should you join Toluna?
They are not a scam, so personally I think they are safe to use and they are also free to join. You will not make millions from Toluna, but before you get negative, let me tell you something. There is not one survey panel that will make you enough money to brag about. Now why do I say this?
You need to join several panels to really get the most out of this. For most survey panel there will be competitions, special bonus surveys which will give the highest payouts and more. . . .
Once you have registered to some of the panels, you will see which ones will pay you the most. If you found those then stick with them. When you join a panel, they will generally ask you a couple of questions. It might seem like a waste of time, but it is very important to fill in the right information.
This information will then give them your profile as it will show them what type of surveys they can send you. Some types of surveys pay more than average depending on the information you gave them. I am not sure on what type of information will give the highest payout or most surveys but I do recommend that you give an honest profile of yourself as they will be able to figure out if you lied to them.
If you are positive that you can gather 60000 points in a year’s time (which is very possible), then I think you are save to join Toluna, but then you have to be active with their surveys to build up your earnings. It is very important to read the terms & conditions of Toluna and all the other panels as well.

Your free gift
People always say that a panel is a scam if a panel does not send surveys or pay them, but they never realize the possibility that they might have broken an agreement to their conditions and this is why it is so important to read their conditions before you start.
There is so many mistakes that people make that are costing them a lot of opportunities with higher paying surveys and this is why it is so important to know them. There are also a lot of other ways that will make you more money such as focus groups and product testing.
I have also learned a couple of skills on how to make more money money from surveys. This is the main reason why I created Survey 101 training guide here at Survey Royal. This guide will tell you all you need to know about surveys and also how you can make the most money out of them.
My final word
Toluna is definitely not a scam. I have seen so many people making money from them and the biggest reason why people are not making money from them is because of a couple of mistakes that they are making. There mistakes are very obvious, but I still see so many people that are falling into this trap. Please fee free to share your story below if you have any questions.
