So what is NCP Homescan? Well, NCP is a company that measures consumer attitudes and behaviors—for example, NCP might have their analysts crunch the numbers to find out just how many boxes of cookies a mother of two from California buys in a week (answer: too many!) and then will relay this information to manufacturers and retailers to help them make decisions on what products to develop or improve.

NCP is accepting new applicants for panel members, but you need to hurry—space on the panel is limited. Accepted panel members will receive their very own hand-held scanner. Every time a panel member (or a person in the panel member’s household) goes shopping, they will scan the bar code on their purchases. It’s fun (yes, my idea of a good time has come to include zapping things!) and best of all, NCP will reward you for your time. The more you scan, the more points you earn—points that can be redeemed for name brand products such as jewelry, household items, toys, and electronics. The more you scan, the more entries you will receive for NCP’s fabulous sweepstakes for items such as a $20,000 cash prize, a dream vacation valued at $25,000, and a new car or truck!

Here’s how you can apply to become an NCP panel member:

  • Click Here.
  • In the designated boxes, enter your name, email address, phone number, address and date of birth. Then click on the green “submit” button. It really couldn’t be any easier.
  • Wait to hear whether or not NCP has accepted you onto their panel. If you have applied before and were rejected, try again! It took me two tries to get accepted onto the panel.

NCP Homescan is not for everyone. We have heard from some of you that it takes too much time and you were unhappy with it. On the flip side, we have also heard how much some of our readers enjoy it.

“I have been a member with NCP since August last year. After 5 months (December 2011), I was a $500 ‘Super Scanner Winner.’ I do enjoy this program. I myself, have never had any problems or complaints with it. Keep trying!”
“I got my scanner early Feb. and am having a lot of fun scanning my purchases. Cannot wait to get some rewards!”

      Do they tell you that they are not accepting after you fill out the long survey about your household details? Or after you enter your name and home address on the initial page?

  8. I was able to complete the survey and give all of my information also……it takes a few weeks to get processed and then possibly approved.  They will notify me by email.  I have never done this before, but it seems fun!  :)

  9. It took all my information and had me do a survey/ profile so hopefully I can do it.  I did about  8 years ago and the rewards werent’ bad considering all I did was scan stuff I bought.

  13. I got accepted and just got my scanner. Seems easy enough and I’ve been logging my purchases for a week. Has anyone used this and received rewards? I was disappointed at the gift card selection available and I wonder if they change up the gift card rewards from time to time.

      I’ve done it in the past.  They took the program away and I didn’t know it was back. When I did it they never changed up the gift cards.  However, its been over a year since I scanned.  I wish they were accepting new members, I’d do it again.

        Thanks for sharing your positive experience! I am still trying to decide whether this program would work for me. I was wondering if you could share your experiences? How often did you scan each week and approximately how many hours a month? How many months before you were able to redeem a decent reward? Thanks in advance!

          Basically, I scanned every time I bought anything, I kept the scanner in the kitchen so it was easy to get to.  I also was not a couponer back then.  So I scanned maybe 1 -2 times every 2 weeks.  My daughter loved to scan items too.  So I would line groups of stuff up and let her scan them.  As for rewards, I believe I got 1-2 gift cards a year, but keep in mind that was years ago and they have changed up the program.  I would give it a shot. Try it for a bit and see if it works for you.  If it doesn’t then call them and send the equipment back :)
