You’ve probably heard about sites you can sign up to in order to test products. Well, Toluna offers you that chance, plus you can get paid too.
Test Products with Toluna
Toluna is a survey site that rewards you in points. Build up enough points and then you can exchange them for vouchers. Now I was initially skeptical why you would offer points rather than £’s. That said, Swagbucks deal in points and I’ve earned a large amount from them over the last couple of years so I was willing to overlook that.
But you don’t have to take the vouchers option. Instead, you can exchange points to try and win prizes. What do points make? And some of the prizes are pretty tempting, such as a MacBook Air and an iPhone.
There’s a large choice of vouchers, including Amazon, iTunes, Argos and many more. If you prefer you can be paid via PayPal.
A typical survey pays out at roughly 2400 points. And to earn a £10 Argos voucher would take 55000 points. By my calculations, that means that each survey is worth around just over 40p each. Now compared to some other companies such as Panelbase, this isn’t particularly good.
So why Toluna?
There is a good reason to complete as many surveys as you can. The more you complete, the better chance you have to be selected to test products. There is a range of products to choose from and you are required to register an interest. Once registered, you wait till see if you are lucky enough to be chosen.
Most testing opportunities have multiple products to try. The only issue I found is that most products are more suitable for women. There is a lot of makeup, hand cream and soap to test, which isn’t really my cup of tea!
