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+

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. it's def a Legit site. It does take sometime to get your cheque when you request one but overall very good site and very legit.

wasted time

March 9, 2021 by Lynda from Canada

too many times I have spent 10 mins on a survey and then I'm told I don't qualify or the site freezes. I've wasted a lot of time trying to complete survey and then get kicked off.

My experience 👍

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.
