You’ve probably heard about sites you can sign up to in order to test products. Well, take a look at product testing with Toluna to see if it’s worthwhile.
Product Testing with Toluna
Toluna claims to be an online community dedicated to making your voice heard! Tell the world’s leading providers of products and services what you think and earn rewards by participating in surveys. Although they are primarily a survey company, they provide plenty of opportunities to test products.
Toluna provides a decent number of surveys. And there’s good reason to complete as many surveys as you can. The more surveys completed, the better chance 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.
You don’t have to exchange points for vouchers. Instead, you can them for a chance to win prizes. What do points make? And some of the prizes are pretty tempting, such as a MacBook Air and an iPhone.
Toluna rewards you in points. Those of you that have read some of my other survey reviews will know I’m not keen on this. If you were rewarded with £’s, it’s far easier to tell how much each survey is worth.
The issue I found from product testing with Toluna is that it is mainly aimed towards women. There is a lot of makeup, hand cream and soap to test, which isn’t really my cup of tea!
There’s a large choice of vouchers, including Amazon, iTunes, Argos and many more. If vouchers don’t tickle your fancy, then you can withdraw 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.
Expect to earn around £3 per hour. However, you will earn more if you’re selected to test products.
