Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel Taking Applications!

Hurry! Head over and sign up for the Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel! They closed their program to new consumers for a while, but it looks like they’re taking applications again. You could be approved based on your zip code alone. If there isn’t a spot open right now, don’t worry. You should be put on the waiting list and could get in shortly once a spot in your area opens up.

Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel is a consumer research company that rewards a select group of consumers just for scanning their household purchases each week. They send you the scanner and you earn points for scanning the barcodes of the products that you buy. Your points can then be redeemed for great rewards!

    Has anyone tried this panel & would have feedback? Wondering how many ‘points’ you need to redeem for rewards & how quickly they add up…

      I got out of Homescan years ago–it’s a massive pain in the neck and hugely time consuming with very little benefit–it takes forever to earn points, and the prizes are mediocre. I expected more from Nielsen, but it the program has about the worst effort/benefit ratios of any prize program I know of.
