Nielsen Consumer Panel: Give Your Opinion, Get FAB Prizes

May 24, 2011 13 Comments | Disclosure

Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel has opened up again and is looking for new participants!

What is Nielsen Home Scan? A National Consumer Panel where you as a member will be provided with a hand-held scanner. Every time you or members of your household shop, you’ll use the scanner to scan the barcodes on all of your purchases.

Then, once a week, you’ll send in your purchase information. It’s as easy as that!

What’s in it for you? You’ll earn gift points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, including electronics equipment, jewelry, household items, toys, and much more! Plus, you’ll be making your opinions count!

Head on over to sign up HERE.

    After filling out all of the information I got a this webpage is not available message! What a waste of time!!

  4. Showing not available in Seattle area either.

  5. They’re not recruiting in the Meridian / Boise area right now. Bummer!

  6. Don’t give up! When I first applied (I’m in Boise) they said they weren’t recruiting for my area. I signed up for a wait list, and about 6 weeks later they contacted me. I just got my scanner. I have to say, it is more work intensive than I thought – not bad, just MORE. And since I coupon, it is difficult to give accurate information. Still a great program – I’m happy!

    The link isn’t working for me. Is it down, or is my computer being pouty?

  8. i’ve been doing the scanner since end of April.. it is alot more work putting your groceries away, but once you get the hang of it, it does go a little faster.. same goes for me as with Kelsey, sometimes i think it is not accurated because of the coupons. But.. today they sent me a surprise gift.. a grocery tote! anything free in the mail is awesome!

  9. I live in Bountiful, UT. I was approved and just got my scanner. I am excited to try it out but, I am a little apprehensive about accruing enough points to earn a prize. The prizes seem pretty good like an ipod touch or wii system but you have to accumulate at least 200,000 points and you only earn 150 points per week. I looks like you can earn extra points by filling out surveys but it still seems like it could take a long time to earn enough points for something good. So I guess we will see!
