Do you understand what Tolunas TANGO card is?

I thought that with the TANGO card that I used 75,000 points to get, I would get my choice of store cards ie Amazon,Target ect...but when I pushed convert it just went to processing the same as if I pushed for a check. Do you know what the TANGO card does for us?

Wow I never knew about these tango cards, very interesting. I think I'll stick to cash myself. Thanks for the info.

I think the answer is already below but after selecting the card you are supposed to receive a code under Your Payments and Vouchers in a few days then with the code select your gift card. You appear to have to get them 1 at a time so while 225,000 pts could get you 75 in a gift card while you need 240,000 for one 80 dollar check you'd get 3 gift cards of $25 (amazon will let you combine gift cards but not all retailers will). To me the gain doesn't seem that worth it.

I have no idea what a tango card does. I just get the checks.

Now, that you know what a Tango Card does below after you request it from Toluna and wait for its arrival,consider this alternative measure with your points.
Redeem your points for a check, then go to this website below:
Once there, scroll down to the name of the company you intend to use your bought giftcard and access that giftcard's website directly through withever shopping portal you might consider based upon the type of additional reward you might want to earn, like airmiles or hotel rewards points or rebate monies for the actual redemption of the giftcard at that giftcard store.
Let's say you want to buy a giftcard from your local grocery store to earn some additional reward, you could go shop at via a portal taking you to instead you simply going to via typing the website name in your browser.
At that listing of different portals and stores, check out
Another possible route would be to buy your giftcard at or bing,or for a possible monetary rebate?

Part One:
Tango Card is based in Seattle and our customer service representatives are here to assist you. If you can't find an answer to your question in our FAQs, please contact us.
What is a Tango Card?
The Tango Card is the most flexible and thoughtful card available. It is a great gift, but it is not a traditional "gift card." It allows the holder to use the value on the Tango Card site to (i) purchase premier merchant gift cards, (ii) donate to great causes, or (iii) redeem any balance for cash. You can use the value on a single Tango Card to do any or all of these.
What is the difference between a Tango Card and the Retailer Gift Cards on your site?
The Tango Card is a multipurpose card that is used and redeemed here, at our website. The merchant gift cards are purchased on our site and then used at the merchant's retail and online stores.
What is Value Conservation™?
Value Conservation™ is Tango Card's service mark that describes the many ways consumers use all of the value stored in their cards, whether through the selection of the perfect gift card, the donation of dollar value from a Tango Card to a very worthy cause, or the redemption of Tango Card value for cash.
What is Value Management™?
Value Management™ is our service mark for the tools we provide at our website and through our iPhone app to help our members manage and monitor their gift card balances and to remind them of the cards they have available to use.

Personally, i would have requested the checks versus Tango cards or other venues.
So what that a tango card can give you the ability to redeem it for a gift card at Amazon or target,etc.
Think of how you can yourself purchase a gift card for Amazon,target,etc without the involvement of Toluna and its usage of Tango cards.
Does your local grocery store award yourself for buying gift cards?
if so, redeem for checks from Toluna and cash that check and go buy gift card from grocery store.
if not, take the check,cash it and go buy the same gift card via a rewards earning portal that either awards you with rebate cash, or frequent flyer airmiles or hotel reward points per dollar spent via the portal?
Giftcards are a tangible asset that makes the vendor selling them a profit.Why not YOU control the route that gets your gift card.
Meaning, let's say you redeem for a Tango Card, then you redeem your Tango card for some gift card.Guess what? Tango makes a profit getting you that gift card, instead of you having cashed your Toluna check and taking that cash and buying that gift card yourself.
Now, take that Toluna cashed check and use a shopping portal and get paid (rebate)either money,airmiles,hotel points to buy that same gift card.
Only now, you are controlling whom is the middle man.
use Toluna and Tango to get your gift card is earning themselves a commission instead of you.
I would never bother giving any profit to a 3rd party source unless i controlled a part of the commission base by way of earning something, whether it was a discount at my grocery store whom awards myself a discount off gasoline purchases, or some free airmiles,etc.

I am not sure either, but I saw a topic of one of the members with her experience and it wasn't that positive. I am sorry, but I cannot recall who it was. I am not going to bother with it and just go for the checks.
