"Have not been here long enough for full evaluation"
April 27, 2015 by Lorna from Canada

I have only been a member here for under a year, but it seems very long to earn many rewards that add up to any concrete rewards... I do scan all my purchases.. and submit it all, answer all surveys and try to participate in other surveys such as food consumption diaries.. this was a total time waster.. the program was not user friendly for uploading pictures as they requested.. and some days took over 2 hours per person to load the meals and put the details they wanted. They are supportive when they answer you. Have sent out some perks such as little grocery bag... but lots of info sent in for what I see as earned rewards at this point, but will come back once I have hit the year mark to give a fuller evaluation.


"I love them!!"
March 22, 2015 by Cindy from United States

I'm surprised at the negative reviews for them. I just reached my 6 year mark, and I enjoy it very much. The older scanners were a pain, but you can request the newer model. It is true that the points needed to redeem for items used to be really high, but they have changed companies for their gift reward supplier this year. The points needed to redeem have fallen dramatically. I have gotten a lot out of this, and it is fun for me. I enjoy it very much. Maybe it's "not for you", but it suits me just fine. May be worth another look, you never know!! LOL!


"Easy once it becomes second nature"
January 15, 2015 by Jason from Canada

Been a member since 2009, scanning purchased products, answering surveys and participating in diaries. Here are my thoughts on my experience thus far:

PROS:
+ Easy to use barcode scanner
+ Week-long Diaries every other month (typically $15 gift card upon completion)
+ Qualify 99% of the time for surveys

CONS:
- The software tends to crash when attempting to transfer scan logs
- Not as many surveys as before
- Can feel like a chore at first

OVERALL:
At first it felt like a chore having to scan every item I purchase; however, once it becomes second nature like brushing ones teeth, its quite easy to accumulate points. These days there appears to be less surveys but there has been a recent rise in online diaries which I qualify for almost 100% of the time.


"Pain in the REAR"
August 16, 2014 by Joyce from United States

Needs more constant attention than a cantankerous new puppy. Insists on having constant internet connectivity. 90% of the items I tried to scan didn't have codes and I wasted hours for negligible "reward points." UGH...scanner was beeping and bugging me in the middle of the night, negatively affecting my sleep! Avoid like bubonic plague if you have any semblance of a normal life.


"Very big waste of time."
January 30, 2014 by Rebecca from United States

At first getting a scanner to scan all of your purchases seems real fun. After the second week, you realize it's seriously a pain. You get very little points each week for scanning. Was a member for years and finally got enough points to cash in for a picture frame I could have gotten at the Dollar Tree. I went on vacation for two weeks and forgot to inform them, well they ended up cancelling my account and demanding the equipment back. They sent a letter saying I would receive $25 once they received the equipment and that I could cash out any remaining points I had. Well...sent the scanner back, received confirmation from them that they received it, wrote back asking about the $25 and how I could redeem my remaining points and I haven't heard back from them since. (June 2013). Very misleading.
