    Toluna is discussed in our Product testing panels guide. Read about others in there too.

    Back to the original post..

    ---------

    Toluna is now back up from maintenance so we can start earning points again now.

    There are a few differences to the site.
    First, the layout of some of the pages has changed slightly. There is a new homepage and dashboard
    Secondly, when you enter your "hot opinions", they msut now be 10 words or more long.
    Thirdly, the "personal interest" surveys have been updated.
    There are probably some other updates to that I haven't found yet

    Very, very strange. It says 500 points for each of them, but I got 2000 points for most of them yesterday. And then today, I got 2000 points for every single one. Including the ones I'd done yesterday. I'd try it again, but they'd be bound to notice, surely? Unless they're complete idiots.

    Still, 100000 points shuffled off to ipoints pretty bloody quickly and those were then quickly turned into DVDs. Which hopefully arrive before anyone notices what's going on. Given the time it seems to take them to give you points for surveys anyway, I doubt there'll be a problem there. Better not be, because I wanted to complete my collection of Family Guy DVDs in less than a year, for free. Which I just did. Hopefully.

    Its taken me ages to rack up points! I guess i dont use it as often as i should, and sometimes i ignore the surveys cos im never normally wanted, or they take forever!

    I do that too. i use all my survey and sites like ipoints to buy dvd's and box sets. Its really nice getting something for nothing!! I've got loads free so far!! Am waiting for some CD Wow vouchers from Toluna and that's another 2 boxsets!

    Finally it let me log on and it still says my profile needs updating even after i updated EVERYTHING this morning and got a ton of points for doing it!!

    I updated my profile, earned 10000 points and immediately got an invite to a new survey for 5,200 points. I'm a really happy bunny today!

    On my dashboard it says that all of the surveys have changed sicne I last answered so I will just do them again and hope I get more points (even though they are all completed already)

    EDIT: There is now a new product to test which is Golden Compass stickers.

    what do people use their Toluna points for?

    Alot of people seem to be changing them into Ipoints, why is this?
