AskingCanadians Walmart Points FAQ’s

How many points can I expect to earn per survey?

Based on the length and complexity of the survey you will earn from 50 to 300 Walmart points.

How many points do I need to redeem towards a Walmart gift card?

You must reach a minimum of 1,000 Walmart points (Points Level 1) before you can redeem your points.

What are Accelerator Points, and how do I earn them?

If you opt to continue to earn points, rather than redeeming them, you earn Accelerator Points. Here is how it works:

If you reach Level 1 and DO NOT redeem the points you have earned, but choose instead to continue to the next Level (2), you earn an additional 50 points which will be added to your balance when you reach Level 2. This means that when you reach 2,000 points, you will actually have 2,050 points.

Once again, if you choose to continue on to the next Level (3) rather than redeeming points, you will earn accelerator points. In this case, an additional 150 points will be added to your balance when you reach Level 3, and so on. In total you can earn between 50 and 500 accelerator points (depending on how many levels you cross before your first point redemption).

Accelerator Points give you an opportunity to earn points faster by giving you a jump-start on the points towards your next level. If you redeem any points before reaching the next level, you will forfeit the accelerator points.

"How often can I earn accelerator points?

You will have 3 opportunities to earn accelerator points. Once you reach Level 2 (an extra 50 points), once you reach Level 3 (an extra 150 points) and when you reach Level 4 (an extra 300 points). Based on when you “cash you”, you can earn from 50 to 500 accelerator points. It is up to you how many levels you wish to cross in order to earn accelerator points. However, the accelerator points are offered only once. Once you choose to redeem any points you will no longer have the option to earn accelerator points in the future.

How do I redeem the points and where do I view my Walmart points balance?

At the end of each month, you will receive an AskingCanadians E-statement featuring your Walmart points balance to date and how to redeem them towards a Walmart gift card.

You must reach a minimum of 1,000 Walmart points (Points Level 1) before you can redeem your points.

You may only redeem your points for gift cards of the following denominations: $10, $20, $50 or $100.

Do I earn anything if I start a survey but do not qualify to complete that questionnaire?

If you start a survey but the next set of questions does not apply to your profile, you will still receive 5 Walmart points for your time.

Why do you need to qualify to complete a survey?

Typically, when we conduct a study, we are looking for a particular group of people. For example, if we are conducting a poll about new lunchbox snacks we may need to ask mothers with young children. For another study we may need men in Manitoba who drive pick-up trucks. In order to assess whether our respondents meet the requirements of the study, we need to start each survey by asking a series of “qualifying” questions. In addition, once the quota for a particular group is reached, the system will screen out any additional people who fall within that group, if they attempt to complete the survey. Most survey companies do not reward members who do not qualify for a study. AskingCanadians values your time and effort and you will be compensated if you either do not qualify for a study or if your quota has been reached.
