I signed up for Toluna and just did a survey worth 12,000 points. I'm always skeptical of these kinds of sites. Do any of you have any experience with them? Is it worth bothering?

    Good Luck.

    If you value your time at all, these sites are worthless. We have had good luck with local focus group companies who pay $500-$100 per hour. But online, even the highly recommended ones I tried really just paid pennies per minute. I have no patience for it when I could be using that time to make more money doing just about anything else. I haven't tried Toluna specifically but have tried some of the highly recommended survey sites. Very very time consuming to earn even $5. I'd rather get a second job at Wal Mart, personally. Then work for $1 an hour or whatever...

    To be fair, I don't shop and am not the domestic head of household so I never qualify for any of the good surveys - never qualified for PineCone, etc. If you do all the shopping in your house you might have a better chance than I at actually making some money. I am aware that some of my frustration comes from just being an odd demographic (female who does not grocery shop, etc.)

    I think there are a couple on SA that have used that site.

    I understand MM point, but if you are on the computer anyway, might as well make it count for something. I use Swagbucks to search and watch videos while I'm doing something else.

    I'm kind of agreeing with MM at the moment.

    @ccfree - for surveys, you certainly can not do anything else while you are taking a survey. Just to be clear I am talking specifically about surveys - they can be VERY time consuming.

    I agree with what everyone here has said, however, being underemployed, I do them anyway when I have no paying work and I averaged $75 a month from Toluna and all the others. (See my 2011 income breakdown.) Toluna seems to have the most surveys available, but like most of the others, they take a long time to mail you a check and yes, it's doubtful it's worth your time. Unless, like me, you'll do almost anything for money.
