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!

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!

After 11 Years...

January 21, 2020 by John from Canada

This is THE VERY FIRST online survey company I ever signed up with way back in 2008. With a few other survey companies I earned enough $ to buy my 47" LG 1080p HDTV that I use to this day as my main pc screen. I did hundreds for surveys for this company & numerous product tests. After completing the last one - testing 2 rolls of toilet paper, I was awaiting my cheque for $6.00 as I had done both parts of answering questions after a few days when I got an email and a second after the product test was finished. This is the only company I was with that I knew that still mailed out physical cheques via snail mail in Canada. I received no cheque. My account was still active.
I still got emails for surveys, I qualified for them, I did them and my account total still kept going up. I sent an email, then a second, then a third. I even called them 2 different times while at work & left messages & never received a reply. Then I got to log into my account and it had been deleted - Thanks for the memories SurveyLion, now I need a new TV!

A legitimate site that pays!

June 23, 2019 by Ayla from Canada

This is the first survey site I joined and I love it! Just received my first reward after being on it for approximately 1 year, I saved up my reward to $125.00, but you can cash out at anytime! They deliver cheques quarterly so there is a wait which is why I waited for a substantial amount to be sent. I only wish they would secure the site and update the referral part of site as it has been down for maintenance since I signed up and would like to refer other but want the incentive for doing so. I hope they fix it soon. Great site! I have even sampled a food item they sent to be reviewed! I hope to get to receive more things to review in the future.

Very Good Site

February 19, 2019 by Randy from Canada

I really like this site. Survey pay pretty well and are usually not very long. Jennifer Ross generally answers any questions you have promptly. There are not all that many surveys but one usually qualifies. Only downside is the payout is slow and done by cheque. I am still waiting for a $51 cheque from November 2018. Wish they used PayPal.
