competitions and important things to
Fun Community Stats
If you follow our posts on Toluna.com, you'll notice that we occasionally post "would
you rather" polls for a bit of fun. Sometimes are results are not as expected!
Would you rather win $50,000 for yourself,
or let your best friend win $500,000?
When we asked for predictions for the outcome of this poll,
many of you believed that the majority of votes would favour the
friend. However, it seems 70% of respondents would rather win
for themselves. Who wouldn't want to be a winner after all?
Join our Influencer Predictions
game on Facebook for more of
these "would you rather"
questions. If you can predict the
outcome of the poll, or have one
of the closest predictions, you'll

Does It Better
Year after year, New Zealand tops global lists in terms of women's empowerment
and gender equality. Although there may still be factors that need improvement,
New Zealand is at the forefront when it comes to women’s access to education,
health, politics and economic equality. The fact that Jacinda Ardern is unfazed
by her pregnancy while taking on the job of Prime Minister, is a testament to this.
One could even say that women's empowerment is something New Zealand does
better than any other country

that you believe New Zealand does better than
To participate in this mission and prove that New

Things to Note
Changes to Rewards
Due to delivery and transaction costs involved in processing various rewards,
we have had to make some changes to our reward options. Redemptions made
prior to 1st March are unaffected - they will be processed as usual. However
please take note of the changes to the number of points required for each
♣ Rewards discounted by 500 points are: GiftPay Flexi e-gift card,
Bunnings e-gift card, Mighty Ape e-voucher

♣ PayPal changes: A $20 transfer is now redeemable for 20,400 points
Qualifying for surveys
It was briefly mentioned on page 5 that you
will qualify for more surveys if you read the
survey questions carefully and answer
truthfully. Most surveys will have quality
filters to ensure the consistency and validity
of the answers provided. If you don’t
answer these specific questions correctly,
you will be screened out from the survey
and your answers will be discarded. In
most cases, this is the reason for being
terminated at the end of a survey.
To prevent these types of screen-outs from occurring, please ensure that you read
the question and answer options carefully and provide thoughtful and truthful
answers that are consistent with your previous answers, and also with the details
saved in your profile.
Furthermore, our clients need a limited number of respondents for every target
group of a survey. If there are several demographics from which answers are
required, the survey may still be open but if the answers required from your
particular demographic group have been filled, then you would not be able to
enter the survey.
If you have queries about surveys, please
contact us via our helpdesk system, and
ensure that you provide the corresponding
survey ID number. This information can be
found on your Points page.
See you soon!
