Thanks to your precious feedback, we have updated our landing pages to not only
reflect what Toluna is all about, but to also make it easier for users to understand how

to use our website. We have already updated most of our pages but if you don't yet see
this design, please know that we are working on launching it in your language as soon
as possible.

After 5 years and 7546 winners, we have decided to
put an end to our Gifties program that seemed to be

losing in momentum. Don"t worry, we are working hard

Toluna launched a whole new and fun way to share your

opinion and earn points. These exclusive forums are only
open for a short period to small groups with specific

interests. To be selected to participate, simply answer our
short surveys in the Survey Centre. If your profile
corresponds, you will receive an exclusive invite to the

forum you qualified for.



Since the launch of our latest mobile app in 2015, we have
credited bonus points for the 1st content created via the

app. This bonus was no longer needed, as we are already
awarding points for all quality content created on Toluna,

regardless of device.
Please note that you will still be receiving an extra
500 points for every survey you complete via our mobile

app so don't forget to download it.


A news

Toluna Relay Race

Easy way to get in touch and earn 5,000 points

As you might have seen we started a new contest!

Relay Race is a race where members need to

collaborate. Each member participates in only a set
part of the race carrying a baton before passing it onto

the next runner.
Toluna Relay race is about creating contests and
passing the opportunity to win 5,000 points among our


Toluna announced 1st contest
creator, a member who needed to

create own contest with specific rules,
during following 3 days this member

found and announced one winner.
This 1st winner created another

contest, found and announced the
2nd winner. This 2nd winner again

created another contest and
announced the 3rd winner...

Important: The winner only receives
5,000 points once he/she creates

his/her own CONTEST.



6 members participated in our Toluna Relay Race so far and we would like
to show you their nice contests

Christmas mood was everywhere around

and in our 1st contest kristilreyes was
asking our community about Christmas

related questions. Have a look at it.
More than 139 members participated in the very
first Relay Race and we could see our dear

kristilreyes kicked off this race in a great style!
Oficially first winner of this contest

was sheila_anne.

As the 1st winner came up with an idea to post

a picture and ask our members Who is this person on
the picture? Is it Secret Santa? Santa´s assistant?
Mrs. Claus? Many of you were guessing but only one

member could win. In this case benphilip became
the 2nd winner and we were happy to see how much

you are enjoying every race.

benphilip found a really creative way to
entertain you. The goal of this contest was to
find 2 movies in following emoji. Would you be

able to find an answer? To be honest? ME?
NOT AT ALL! We were so proud of every

member who found the right answer.
Christmas story & It's a wonderful life were two

right answers and congratulations goes
to mary541 7

The Best App Book


4th winner mary 541 asked us What is the best app, website, book,
