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.

Terrible customer service

October 23, 2021 by Luke from Canada

I have emailed numerous times and get no response, for months now. Their website doesn’t allow you to view points balance. It’s been multiple months since I’ve received an email showing my points balance. There’s no way for me to cash out

More than half of awards don't get awarded

September 14, 2021 by JR from Canada

More than half of 'points' earned never get awarded to your selected loyalty program. If you don't believe me, I suggest that you make note of the surveys you complete and see how many of these earned points you will NOT actually receive.

Dishonest to participants

November 23, 2019 by Kathleen from Canada

This service will not even let participants know whether they qualify before putting them through lengthy surveys. Dishonest and not reputable.

Completed surveys, but no rewards as promised

January 4, 2017 by M.E. from Canada

I have done many surveys for this group. Most recently I completed the week-long Touchpoints survey, which requires you to do one survey every half hour for a week. It's a lot of time. Once I'd finished, I was told that I had to follow one last link to do a "final" survey and receive my rewards. The link wouldn't work. I requested help from AskingCanadians. They replied, said they would help... then didn't. I've reached out 6 or so times now, and at this point cannot get a reply at all. I cannot recommend anyone else spend their time doing surveys for AskingCanadians. Especially the (longest ever) Touchpoints survey!

A bunch of cheats

June 25, 2019 by Rajat from Canada

They keep sending surveys which promises more than 60+ Hudson's Bay points. But as soon as you fill the survey, they say they have enough people with my similar profile and so I will get only 5 points in the next 4-6 weeks. What rubbish!! They need to honour the commitment. Also, I can't see the points issuance on the Hudson's Bay Rewards account - which means both companies are not cooperating to give the customer the rewards as promised.
