Money4Mom: Nielsen’s Consumer Panel

by Freebies4Mom on January 6, 2012 4:37 pm

NielsenOpenings may be available in your area to apply for Nielsen’s Homescan National Consumer Panel. I’ve heard from my readers who are active in this program, and many find it a rewarding and easy way to earn free merchandise. Opportunities are limited based on where you live but I encourage you to apply to find out if there are openings in your area.

Please be aware that this can be time-consuming as you have to scan all of your purchases, so it is certainly not something that everyone would be willing or able to do. Some of my readers have given positive feedback so I thought it would be worth sharing with you. This post contains affiliate links. For more information please visit my Disclosure Policy.

I signed up before this and was accepted-my scanner should arrive this week (got an e-mail saying it was shipped.  I hope this is worth my time, we shall see…

I did it last time it was posted and they did not accept anybody from my area.  Next day I received a call that I was accepted. Waiting for my scanner now.  🙂

already sent mine back – this program is a racket! a ton of time, hassle, without any rewards.

I really would like to hear more from the people that love this program. My family is participating and we scan all our purchases and fill out the surveys they send us, but we earn points are a very slow rate.  I wonder if there is something that we are not doing that could help us earn points faster.  I would appreciate any tips that people have.

The longer you are in the program, the weekly amount of points available for scanning purchases increases.  Are you transmitting weekly?  That increeases the points you earn as bonus points.  Also, you will earn bonus points on your yearly anniversary of you joining and also for your birthday.  I’ve been a member for over 10 years.

We are fairly consistent with our transmitting, maybe we miss a week every couple of months or so.  We also try to stay up on any surveys they send us.  But at the rate we are going it looks like we are at least a year, if not more, away from getting one of the larger rewards.  I was thinking that maybe the sweepstakes that they offer would be a good bet.  Have you ever won a sweepstakes?

Not accepting in my area. Oh well!

I did it for about a month but it took way too much time to scan everything in (and there are only two of us).  I just sent back my scanner via FedEx yesterday.
