Nielson Home Scan Consumer Panel

I really wanted to give this a try, but alas, they’re not accepting new applicants in my area, so I thought I’d pass it on in case any of you wanted to try and participate.

Apparently you get this nifty little scanner, scan products that your family purchases and upload this information for Nielson once a week.  By doing so, you gain points that can be redeemed for all sorts of goodies and you’re entered into various sweepstakes.

In addition, if you’re like me, you like having your voice heard about the products you buy and the brands you buy from.  By detailing purchases you’ve made, companies can derive information that helps them create products that are better for the consumer.

If you’re interested, click on the banner to the left and enter your information to see if they’re accepting panelists in your area!
