Scan your household purchases and earn points towards great rewards. Earn merchandise such as small kitchen appliances, electronics, toys, and more, in addition to gift cards, and sweepstakes entries.
As a bonus, receive yearly gifts for your participation in the program.
Nielsen Homescan is redoing their rewards catalog and has brand new rewards available starting March, 2015.
Please note that the US version of this panel is the: National Consumer Panel.
This panel is a bit different. You scan all of your purchases and transmit them weekly. You get points for products. They also send surveys for points. A bit time consuming .
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'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!
Been a member since 2009, scanning purchased products, answering surveys and participating in diaries. Here are my thoughts on my experience thus far:
+ Easy to use barcode scanner
+ Week-long Diaries every other month (typically $15 gift card upon completion)
+ Qualify 99% of the time for surveys
- The software tends to crash when attempting to transfer scan logs
- Not as many surveys as before
- Can feel like a chore at first
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.
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.
