I am so happy to be a winner of the Weekly Lottery. When I saw the
points in my account, I could not believe in my eyes. "It must be a
mistake", I thought, but I understood later that I was just lucky. I
used my points for iPhone X on the quarterly lottery in hopes that I
will have a chance for that too. Good luck to everyone.
OMG Thank you Toluna!!! I've just won £98 on your weekly
lottery & it couldn't have come at a better time! I love this
This time it was my turn! Winner of the weekly 100 euros! I found
out yesterday directly in my mail ... oh yes (...) Great Toluna! I
immediately used 500 points to purchase another ticket ... you
never know! hahahahaha.Thanks Toluna!
I am Super Happy, I won the Weekly Lottery. Thank you Toluna, I
already had my Christmas and birthday present in advance. I
already received the 100 Euros yesterday by Paypal, Like anything
can happen... Do not despair, your turn will come too ...

Lmam who gives us a review below
Won these Bose QuietComfort 35 Headphones from Toluna and
wow!! They are awesome. They block out any noise around you
and give a smooth, clear, high-quality sound. I love how they are
wireless and I can Bluetooth to my phone to play music as I work
without bothering anyone else, and easily receive calls through
them and get up and move around without worrying about wires
everywhere. I have also used them to play audiobooks for my
7-year-old son (especially on the odd occasion when I have to take him to my meetings
and don't want him to hear any of the conversation). They look good, are comfortable,
very easy to set up and use and they stay charged for ages. I absolutely love these
headphones, we are very grateful to have won them as not something we ever would
have thought to go out and get, but now finding extremely useful and fun, thank you
