National Consumer Panel

Scan your purchases, earn rewards
Become a member of National Consumer Panel, and you will be sent a free barcode scanner. Use the scanner to scan your grocery store purchases, and earn rewards for your participation. NCP also has a program available where you can use an iPhone or Android app to scan your purchases using your smartphone.

Rewards for participating
Points are accumulated by scanning purchases and taking the occasional online survey. These points can then be redeemed for a wide variety of merchandise made available through a gift catalog. These include Visa reward cards, Amazon e-vouchers, iTunes gift cards, Kindle Fire cards, electronics, and more. Longer participants in the program will receive more points for their participation.

Automatic sweepstakes entries
Regular participation in the program means automatic entries into regular sweepstakes that are held weekly, monthly, and quarterly. Quarterly cash draws are held for $20,000. Other prizes awarded include cash, gift cards, and electronics.

The longer you're a member, the more you'll earn
The longer you are an active participant of NCP, the more points you will get credited to your account each time you participate. The program has been around for over a decade, so it's not uncommon for participants to be members for this long!

Special member perks
Being a member also entitles you to the NCPRewards+ program where you can get special discounts at AT&T as well as through other major retailers.

"They try to take money from you!!"
November 03, 2015 by Lori from United States

I signed up for this program and didn't get around to using it, so I sent it back. I kept emailing them asking if they had received the equipment. Months later they just now called me and did not believe I had mailed it via fedex. The guy said we have to have the tracking number or you will have to pay for the equipment. Finally found it (thank god I kept it). Both people I talked to on the phone were rude. Why would I want to keep their useless crap anyway?? We'll see if they get in touch again.

"no credit to hard workers"
October 03, 2015 by Katie from United States

I joined NCP to be a panel member. got my scanner began to work. my husband and I transmitted the things it was confirmed. they then sent me a non compliance letter that said I've not submitted anything my membership was being terminated. the problem was I wasn't even there for that long. when I explained to them my transmitting went through they need to keep better records. they were rude asked me to send the scanner back. this panel is a no go.I encourage you to stay away.

"Ended up COSTING me money! "
September 15, 2015 by melissa from United States

I joined ncp foolishly thinking I'd earn some stellar rewards. They sent me a scanner that didn't work from day 1. I told them about this and they sent me a shipping label to send it back. I sent it back in March. It is now September and I got a letter yesterday telling me that if I do not send the scanner back I owe them $100. I called ncp thinking it was a mistake but they said they never received the scanner and that there is nothing they can do... Ncp is a complete joke.

"time consuming"
August 20, 2015 by Roberta from United States

If you like to shop and you don't mind scanning your purchase of everything you buy then this panel is for you. If not then skip it. You get points for scanning and transmitting your purchases weekly. The points do add up for general merchandise. Nothing fancy just ordinary household items. It takes a while for your points to add up for the better merchandise. There are no cash outs for gift cards or Paypal , or cash.You can also get points for special surveys..usually 150 points per survey.

"Another 10 year waste of time."
July 28, 2015 by John from United States

I could not agree more with Jennifer who just posted on 7/1/15. I too am a 10 year veteran of NCP. There was always the enjoyment of scanning my products to let the vendors know what we're buying as well as the surveys that we took to give the vendors more insight. However after being let down several times when I reached the right amount of points for a gift, it would be GONE. This past year was the breaking point. A new catalog was suppose to come out the first of the year. It was put off month after month. There was anticipation that there were going to be bigger and better gifts. Finally after several months, the new gift catalog was posted. It was by far the worse ever. There were just over 100 items. It was 50% brand name items and 50% off brand items. I still have my 2005 gift catalog (paperback) and it has close to 200 items all from well-known brands. Don't anyone dare call me petty because these vendors are getting a load of information from what we supply and I'm sure paying NCP very well to collect this data. Our time is worth more than what came out in the last catalog. One more item; In all my years on the panel I was never able to collect 8000 points over a 3 month period doing all the surveys along with the weekly drug survey as well as doing the scanning every week.
