Canada Survey Site: Asking Canadians

I am often asked about online survey companies that are actually legitimate and I usually have to tell people that I really just don’t know of any. I don’t have much time for surveys, but when a friend told me how great Asking Canadians was a few months ago, I figured I’d give it a shot.

She was right – it is great!

For every survey that you participate in, you will automatically earn your choice of either Aeroplan Miles or HBC Rewards Points. The amount that you receive varies by survey.

Or, if you’d like, you can choose to be rewarded in other ways, like entries into contests and draws.

Asking Canadians is free to join and the surveys that they send you are actually pretty interesting and I’ve found that many of them don’t take much time to complete.

Click any of the links in this post to join Asking Canadians, or if you’re so inclined, leave a comment with your email address and I will send you an email invitation (I will earn HBC Rewards points for every person that I refer through email).

What survey sites do you regularly use and enjoy?

    Here are two of the survey sites that i usually do Web Perspective and .With web perspective you can redeem 1000 survey points for 50 airmiles ,Chapters online vouchers for $10.00 , a movie pass and a couple of others i cannot think of.They do take time but i have received 100 airmiles and $90.00 worth of vouchers for Chapters. The other is much the same with the option of either receiving money or the vouchers.Hope this helped..

    Sounds good,

  54. JC

    I’ve become suspicious of “Asking Canadians”. On several occasions now I’ve begun a survey for e.g. 50 airmiles. Partway through the survey, after I’ve already furnished quite a bit of information, I’m suddenly told that I can’t complete the survey because I don’t qualify or because they’ve already got a sufficient number of responses (even though I responded immediately when their email arrived!), and will therefore only get only get 5 airmiles for my trouble. Is this a sneaky way of getting the information they’re really after at a lower cost to themselves?

  55. j

    Didnt get my petropoints. WTF!

  56. moyra

    I would like an invite also, when you have some free time

  57. Sandra

    I found same on numerous occasions, and no longer do the surveys. Also have not received promised points on numerous occasions.

  58. Sandra

    I was referring to surveys kicking me out after I gave identifying info, telling me I didn’t ‘qualify’ or that the limit had been reached. I think there is something very odd about this outfit. JC and J (above) have had the same experiences. I have contacted them numerous times, only to have some kind of lame excuse and no points awarded.

  59. Huy Dang

    I’ve been a member of this panel for nearly six years. I switched my points option to Petro-Points the moment it became available.

  60. Laura mackinnon

    I am interested
