Are you a savvy Canadian consumer?

AskingCanadians is a research community that allows you to share your opinion about numerous leading Canadian brands. Share your input on consumer products and in exchange you will receive your choice of exciting gifts.

Unique reward options

Established in 2005, AskingCanadians allows members to earn their choice of HBC Rewards points, Aeroplan Miles, Petro-Points or Via Rail Preference Points. You can also choose AC points, which can be redeemed for Amazon eGift cards. Members must earn points towards one chosen reward brand, but this can be changed. Points collected can also be used to enter into lucrative prize draws through the AskingCanadians website. If you do not qualify to complete a survey, you will still be entered into a draw to win a “thank you” reward for your time.

Survey redemption

Each survey will alert you to the exact quantity of points (from your chosen reward category) you will receive or if you will be eligible to win a reward for participating in the survey. Most rewards from AskingCanadians take within 2-4 weeks to appear in a users account. The quantity of the reward given from surveys taken depends on two factors: urgency and length of survey. If you decide that you would like to receive an Amazon eGift card, you will need to earn 500 points (the equivalent of $5.00). At the end of each month you will receive an e-statement from Asking Canadians that will showcase your points balance.

Get bonus points for joining

Occasionally HBC or other partners will team up with AskingCanadians to offer bonus points after joining the panel and taking a couple surveys. For instance, HBC will e-mail HBC newsletter subscribers giving new potential survey takers the opportunity to earn 500 bonus HBC points for joining AskingCanadians and completing two surveys with them.

AskingCanadians is open to all Canadians

This survey panel is open to residents of Canada only. No age restriction is needed to become a member, but individuals under the age of 16 must get a parent or legal guardian's permission to join. The amount of surveys varies significantly, and will depend on how often your unique characteristics match with the surveys on hand.

These surveys are excellent and they are really fun to do. And I love the incentive of the gift card.

Good Site

Points are in the form of HBC Points or Aeroplan Miles and are credited in 30-60 days. Sometimes points are given even if you don't qualify for the survey. I recommend keeping the e-mail invitation and recording how many points you are entitled too as after 30-60 days, you may forget which points are still owing.

A fun survey community

As a long time member of Asking Canadians, I have nothing but positive things to say!
You always receive feedback letting you know that the surveys you complete are being taken seriously and make a difference. Frequency of surveys is quite good, interesting topics and a good mix of incentive options. My favourite is receiving a good amount of Petro Points!

Good, but infrequent

I haven't cashed out yet, but I'm not doubtful about getting paid. It seems to be a legit site. I trust this site enough to save up for the larger value gift cards! Surveys can be kinda long, and there's always the chance that you'll get disqualified...but hey, you still get 5 points if you disqualify!
