“Zap, zap, zap!” You hear that? That’s the sound of me zapping my groceries with my NCP Homescan zapper. Not only is it fun (I admit it: I’m a little trigger-happy) but also it’s an easy way to earn rewards such as household items, toys, and electronics, just to name a few.

NCP is a company that measures consumer attitudes and shopping behaviors—for example, NCP might have their number crunchers analyze how many packages of cookies a mother of three buys in a year (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 Homescan is accepting new applicants for panel members, but you need to hurry—space on the panel is limited. If you have applied to the NCP panel before and were rejected, now is the time to apply again. 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. Your kids will probably love to help out, too—just tell them it’s a game like laser tag.

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 jewelry, household items, toys, electronics, and more. Also, the more you scan the more entries you will receive for NCP’s sweepstakes for items such as a $20,000 cash prize, a vacation valued at $25,000, and a new car! So don’t be afraid to get a little trigger happy, ladies! Scan! Scan! Scan!

    Just sent my scanner back yesterday, definitely not worth the trouble.

    It’s a pain to put prices in when there is sale and you use a mfg coupon and a store coupon. So is the produce, you have to look stuff up in a little booklet. Also the prizes aren’t that great. The gift cards are the best, but they only have Jiffy Lube and I-tunes.
    Not sure why I’m still doing this, lol.

    I did this too for about 6 months.  It just got to be too much of a hassle for little in return.  I sent the scanner back before letting them know I was done with them.  I don’t have kids, but it could and was a daunting task at times, especially if they didn’t have the prices loaded in the scanner.  If you have the time, go for it.

    i wish i could at least get the chance to try this…but i’ve tried to sign up so many times and it always says sorry we’re not accepting applications in your area.

  8. Thanks goodness I’m not alone.  I thought this was going to be easy and fun, and it turned into a HUGE problem.  I have 2 kids, so any time I returned from the grocery store late, close to lunch or dinner time, it was tough to scan everything in, or even if my husband was home, he could not help me out the groceries away because I had to scan everything.  I stuck with it for a while – at least 9 months thinking I would get enough for a decent prize before returning the scanner…the only prizes I could select were a book light or a credit card wallet.  Both things I didn’t need/want, and if I had needed these items, I would have rather bought them instead of working so hard for so long to “earn” them.  This was an awful experience for me.

    BIg hassel and waste of time. I did this for over a year and when I cashed out my points I ended up with a lunch box, set of 8 drinking glasses and herb box garden. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME!

      Yeah, and didn’t it come with questions on your purchases, too?  I mean, they make it sound like you just scan and get points.  I seem to remember a lot of questions involved.

  10. This program is for people who have time to scan and record every purchase. Beware they send a lot of emails. As an extreme couponer I found the task overwhelming to imput the coupons truthfully and accurately. I sent the scaner back after a while.

       I agree, this is for a person without children unless you only scan your small trips (they ask you scan EVERY single thing you buy from a coke while pumping gas to a candy bar) and the rewards are your average run of the mile items that even reporting weekly can take years to get (the best) and months to a year for the smallest item you can buy for under $10 at walmart or a dollar store.

      But I do know a few people that love doing this and I guess like teh saying goes different strokes.

      Same here. It was a HUGE hassle! I’d get halfway putting groceries away and then remember the scanner. I thought about doing it AS I shopped, but sent it back before I ever tried it that way.
