Pinecone Research, Tellwut

SurveyLion is a panel where you can have a say in many different industries! The panel is owned by Canadian Viewpoint, one of Canada's largest panels. For over 30 years, CVP has been trusted by clients ranging from global Fortune 500 companies to local, boutique market research firms for their quantitative data collection needs, including online, offline, and panel. Since SurveyLion is available to Canadians, the website is accessible in both French and English languages for ease of use.

Payment and Rewards

Signing Up

If you are 16+ years of age, you are able to register to the panel. SurveyLion is looking for the opinions of people all over the world but is Canadian-focused. Registration is easy, but once the form has been completed, make sure to check your email to finalize the registration process.

Earn Rewards for Taking Surveys

There is always a reward in return for completing a survey. Rewards vary from cash, gift certificates and even free products. If you are completing a survey that offers cash, you will be rewarded in the $1 - $10 range, depending on the length and complexity. Most surveys take 5-15 minutes. Payment is sent in cheque form, and may take 4 - 6 weeks to arrive. Members may also be entered into quarterly prize draws in addition to earning cash rewards!

Survey Taking Experience

Survey Taking Details

Make sure to keep your profile information up to date so you get invited to the maximum amount of surveys for your unique demographic. Most surveys take about 5 - 15 minutes to finish, but this is always outlined in the invitation email beforehand.

Cashing Out

SurveyLion allows you to cash out at any time, but does allow you to accrue your cash rewards over time and then request your cash when you are ready. Payments requested prior to the first day of the month will be mailed out by the 15th in most cases.

Earn $5 for Referring Friends and Family

SurveyLion has a very generous friends and family referral program. Each time you successfully refer a new panel member to the SurveyLion community, you will automatically be credited with $5. It pays to grow this family!

Eligibility: Aimed at residents of Canada, 16+

Fun Reviews

January 7, 2021 by Laura from Canada

I like SurveyLion reviews. They pay cash and you have to request your payments which are by cheque and mailed to you so it takes time to get them. I like to accumulate the amount and then request a payout. I wish there were more surveys to take as they are few that are sent out but it is always fun to do the surveys.

I deleted my account as soon as I realized their site is not secure. I do not have any confidence that the information I provided to them may have been compromised already. The unsubscribe link did not work in the email, so I had to visit their website to login and delete my account.

good for some extra money

Like this site, they send you invitations of which most are easy to complete.

Great survey site

June 16, 2020 by Carolyn from Canada

Takes awhile for rewards, but I recommend this site. Great site not very many surveys but when u do get them its worth it. Hard to build up rewards but still a good site.

I have been with them for a while. I did many surveys. Two different times I recieved my cheques when I checked out without problem. However my last check-out was in July 2019 which the cheque should be mail August 15th 2019. It still has not showed up. I emailed and spoke with "Jennifer" multiple times. She said I had to wait 6 months for the bank to allow another cheque so I said thats fine I will wait and keep looking out. End of January I emailed her informing her the cheque has not shown up and I am moving so please send the new cheque to the new address. She assured me that her team will do so once February comes. Well its now almost end of February and still no payment. I emailed her again but no reply yet. I have deactivated my account on there because I dont like this shady crap. I am still waiting!
