Looking for a fun way to earn some great prizes? Then you might be interested in signing up for Nielsen Homescan.
Panel members are 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 you'll upload your data to Nielsen once a week and earn gift points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, including electronics equipment, jewelry, household items, toys, and much more!
I've been a Nielsen Homescan panelist in the past and enjoyed it very much. Nielsen is great about walking you through technical issues, so don't worry about feeling overwhelmed. Note that it was several months before I heard from them when I signed up – they have a limited number of openings available in each area.
Do I have any readers currently in the program that would like to share their perspectives?
