The Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel is accepting new participants! This Homescan program is made up of consumers, whose opinions help to influence manufacturers and retailers. Once you join, you’ll be sent a hand-held scanner (FREE) to scan the barcodes of all your purchases. Once a week, you’ll send the information to Nielsen.

When you join, you’ll also get a chance to earn gift points to redeem prizes and earn entries into different sweepstakes that they offer.

I haven’t tried this yet, but it sounds very interesting! Have you tried this before? How do you like it?

    I scan with a similar company called Shoppers’ Hotline. I get points for scanning my purchases. Those points can be redeemed for a VISA debit card. They also have sweepstakes drawings regularly.

  • Thanks for your feedback, Denise!

    I just start doing this in Germany. I have no idea what is the points system and how many points i will get on my account with my purchases, but i like to join any kind of marketing programms and panels.
