The Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel is once again accepting new applicants in many locations.
If you are accepted as a panel member with Nielsen Homescan,
you will be sent a small hand-held scanner and will scan all the bar
codes of everything you purchase. Once a week, you'll transmit this
information to Nielsen and you'll earn points which can be redeemed for
a variety of items from the Nielsen Gift Catalog.
The Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel is a "mini-USA" that represents all
types of Americans. Manufacturers and retailers will look at the
information you send to them to decide what products to make and sell to
consumers all across the country.
I posted about this opportunity awhile back when they were accepting applicants and many of you left comments on your experiences. Some of you did not enjoy doing this at all and some of you found it quite enjoyable. If you're interested in hearing about others' experiences in this program, check out the comments on this post.
