  3. I quit Toluna over a year ago...found their surveys are worth nothing & takes forever to cash out at 30000 points at that time..might be more now don't know..but other sites I find are much easier & quicker to pay out

  5. I haven't been on here in about six weeks. My husband had been in a nursing home since February 2020 after having a second stroke. He had quite a few health problems, including heart disease, strokes, type II diabetes, gerd, lung problems, etc. We got through the worst of the pandemic. I was always worried that he would succumb to covid. I was very careful, seldom going out anywhere, made sure I got all my vaccines and boosters, wore a mask, etc. How ironic then that what he died from had nothing to do with covid. He had a heart attack on October 22, and the nursing home did CPR on him, got his heart going again and took him to the hospital ER. They called me that night. I called my parents to have them drive me to the hospital because I didn't think I could handle driving, much less anything else. I was a mess. In the ER, I got to see him for a few minutes, and he was conscious and somewhat alert. On Sunday, I visited him, and he was on a bipap. The ER doctor took me aside and told me that my husband couldn't breathe properly without the bipap. He said that the goal was to get him off the bipap, as he wouldn't be able to go back to the nursing home dependent on a bipap. Over the next couple of days, he seemed to improve. They would have him off the bipap for a few hours. He was a little more alert too. Then over the next few days he seemed to plateau. They had been trying to see if he could eat on his own. But he wasn't swallowing very well, so they inserted a feeding tube. By the following Monday, October 31, he was on the bipap, and wasn't very alert. There was a hospice NP who talked to me about what was going on. His heart was failing, with his right ventricle enlarged. Apparently it had that way for some time. I was never told this by the nursing home or anyone else up to that point. The NP explained to me that he would die anyway, and his heart would give out. We talked about options. I didn't want him to suffer or struggle anymore and I know he wouldn't want machines keeping him alive. So the next day, I came in. Hospice was wonderful. They took him off the bipap and feeding tube, and he was getting lorazepam and morphine through the IV. I sat with him, held his hand, and pushed a green button whenever it lit up. That kept the morphine flowing so he wouldn't struggle to breathe. I asked if the hospice chaplain could sit with me, since I didn't want to be alone. He did. After about two hours and 15 minutes, my husband took his last breath. We had his funeral on November 14. He was a 20 year Navy veteran, so his cremated remains were buried at a veterans cemetary. It was a beautiful ceremony. My entire family and friends of mine and my husbands were there. When they played Taps, I sobbed, and one of my best friends comforted me. I was presented the flag, and they collected the brass from the gun salute that I can put in in the folds of the flag. I'm such a mess and am absolutely devastated. It's been a little over a month, and I'm just trying to take things day by day. I feel like my heart has been completely broken and destroyed. My husband and I were married 30 years. He's been with me over half my life. I don't know how I will go on with my life without him, but I know I must. He would want that for me. I would appreciate prayers. I need all the help I can get. I am seeing a bereavement counselor, and that is helping a little. I also had a meeting with a local grief support group. With the holidays approaching, I feel so awful. I won't be putting up decorations this year. It's just too overwhelming. After weeks of paperwork, so much paperwork, I'm finally starting to get back into a new routine. But the grief is brutal at this point. I know it will be a long time before it isn't so raw. So I am embracing the grief, owning it. I don't hold back. I am really grateful and thankful for all the time I had with my husband. I'm also grateful and thankful for my family and friends who have rallied around me. They are there for the darkest days of my life. And there is one more minor thing that I'm trying to figure out. I know for the survey sites that I am active with, I will need to eventually change my status to widowed. I'm just not ready to do that at this point. I'm not sure I'm even going to do that at all. It's none of their business anyway. I know once I do change my status, the number of surveys available to me will go way down. I'm losing my husband's SS as I'm under 60, so money will be tight. I will perservere. I won't give up. I'm very stubborn, and that isn't gonna change.

  6. My heart breaks for you. You seem like such a kind loving person and I'm truly sorry for your loss. Grieving is a long process so I hope you have a good support system. I lost my mom last year in November to covid and it's tough. Take care of yourself and thank you for letting us into your life.

  7. Thanks @peach6. I tried to thank you with a reaction, but there must be a limit. It told me I can't add any more reactions. Thanks for the prayers.

  8. Hi- I just ran across a website that tells you how to make extra money. One of the things they mention is doing surveys, including doing surveys on Inbox Dollars for $20! They also mentioned donating plasma. Has anybody donated plasma? One of the plasma places pays you up to $850 for your first donation. I think it is Biolife.

  10. Some years ago I got banned from Toluna (and lost about £20) for some alleged violation of rules. When I queried they said several of their clients had complained about the quality of my responses I challenged and said in their own rules it said on surveys there was no personally identifiable information, so how could their client say it was me? No response

  12. Please don't waste your time with these folks. Your time would be better spent on sites like Branded Surveys, Paidviewpoint or Swagbucks. Just logging into Eureka Surveys is an exercise in frustration. They supposedly banned me from their site for merely not appearing as though I was in the United States. I am in the U.S.. I don't use VPN's or proxies of any kind and sent them clear evidence that I am in the U.S.. I guess they didn't care. My advice is to avoid them like the plague. If you try to register for a site and merely registering and logging in is a hassle, then that should tell you something about the kind of people they are. I have read that they don't pay in a lot of cases too. A real scam!

  14. I have been looking for a new survey panel to replace a couple of non-producers. ACOP was #5 of the top 5 panels for 2022 as ranked by Survey Police. Does anyone have any experience with this panel? Tell me the good, the bad, the ugly. Btw, ACOP stands for American Consumer Opinion.

  15. So annoying this, qmee really are the pits. Nothing better than spending 15min on a boring survey and then seeing this pop up after getting scammed and not getting paid. Awful site

  16. The same happens to me, I will be at the final screen and all of a sudden, the progress percentage will be back at 0 and I’m being asked completely different questions. Only happened a few times, though.

  18. This is how large multinational companies pad their earnings, they get work for free by constructing a forfeit condition. i’m going to start a separate thread on panels and survey companies that have absconded with members rewards and earnings. Past and present. Please add the companies that did this to Y’all and also the ones that have this in their terms.

  19. Sorry to say this but you aren't the first and you certainly won't be the last person for this to happen to! This sounds about par for the course with Toluna. They did a similar thing to me in the past, but in my case I wasn't banned it was just the gift card I requested never arrived. They put up some feeble excuse saying there were delays with certain gift cards, which dragged on for weeks and months on end. Eventually I and most other users gave up assuming they were going under. Looks like they are back from the dead and up to their old tricks! Also on other sites, most Toluna surveys don't pay out to me either. Avoid at all costs! And I should add that they have no way of proving you have committed any breach of their protocols, it is just a lame excuse to avoid paying out to you. And you can't DISprove it either unfortunately! So they have the upper hand as they are in control and if they don't want to pay you, they don't have to. Sucks but that's the survey life! Just try elsewhere (ANYWHERE else lol!)

  23. I get this with some frequency, but MyPoints usually pays 5 points when this happens, Swagbucks pays 1 point so when I get it early it is OK. If you get it upon completion of an Opinion Outpost/Dynata Survey and have spent considerable time on the survey they will typically make it right and pay the offered points. Others (I am talking about Survey Junkie and Univox) NEVER make it right so I only survey surf for DQ points on those 2 anymore. I am seeing it less than I did a year ago, so there's that.

  26. The worst one I've done is having to put a finger from my left hand on the A key and a finger from my right hand on the L key while going through an endless list of attributes and clicking on the ones that I associate with a certain brand. But before that they had a practice session where I had to click on words that are real and words that are not. I was about ready to pull my hair out after that one. If I ever see a survey like that again, I immediately back out.

  28. If you lie, the data is not valid, and so you are not helping the survey company. I don't depend on surveys to pay my bills. I only do them for the Amazon GC. There are easier and more reliable ways to make money to pay your bills.

  32. Dynata are just outright crooks, no other way to say it. They terminated me with zero cause and I had around $29 USD in my account when they did so. Just read all of the reviews from people to whom they have done the exact same thing. I'd love to know how much money they have stolen from people over the past several years... all without any criminal charges pressed (to the best of my knowledge).

  33. I have completed 3 of their surveys and have made $110. While their surveys are infrequent, they do pay well and right away. I suspect they have way too many people enrolled for the few cases they have.

  37. Everything went fine until I redeemed 30,000 points for a $10 Amazon Gift card. The Toluna to redeem the points didn't have a link to redeem the gift card. I notified Toluna and they sent a new email with the link. I redeemed those points. Also, I had another redemption for a $10 Amazon Gift Card. I was able to earn over 60,000 points since Toluna was out of stock for Amazon Gift Cards for a while. Then I couldn't log into my Toluna account. The "Forget Password' link never sent me an email to reset my password. I sent an inquiry about that and then I got a reply that my account was suspended with the following vague reason: Thank you for reaching out. Kindly note that Toluna is always vigilant in maintaining our community’s integrity. Unfortunately, during our regular reviews, we’ve noticed issues with your account that could negatively impact the integrity of our processes. Our system has detected that you were performing an activity that contradicts information provided in your member profile or is not in line with our Terms.

Unfortunately, based on our records, this requirement has not been met, and, subsequently your membership has been suspended. Thank you for your understanding. My second $10 Amazon Gift Card was now cancelled and the 30,000 points put back in my account that I cannot access. What happened?

  38. I just got a 500 point survey from YouGov about video games, and it asked me which ones I had heard of, and then of the ones I had heard of, it asked me which ones I had played recently. I said I do not do video games. Solitaire was not on the list of games. It then asked me what I thought of the video games I had heard of, such as how it looked. How am I supposed to know if I don't play video games. It then asked me what type of video games I play, and it did not give me an option of saying I do not play video games. Did anybody else get this survey? It also asked me what tv shows I watched yesterday.
