Join the Nielsen Homescan shopping panel. You earn points for scanning your shopping each week which can then be swapped for products.
We signed up to Nielsen Homescan market research panel ages back to test out how it works.
The market research panel earns you points for scanning your shopping each week.
Using a small bar code scanner (which they send you for free), you simply scan in what you’ve been buying.
All points earned can then be swapped for a huge catalogue of products and experience days.
They don’t allow everyone to join and are looking for certain size households from over the country. If you’re not successful today, then it’s worth trying again in a month or so as the panel members they look for changes all the time.
What’s the reward?
You earn points on a weekly basis and can even earn extra bonuses for scanning your shopping regularly. Plus, they send out short surveys via email (they take around a minute!) from time to time and reward you with more bonus points too.
The points start to add up and you can exchange them in the reward centre.
There are so many different kinds of gift available including electronic equipment, household items, jewellery, toys, experiences and more!
Plus, every 4 weeks, your membership number is automatically entered into a new prize draw for your chance to win amazing prizes from holidays, experiences, latest gadgets and once a year a brand new car.
