What's the Nielsen Consumer Panel?
You need groceries, and companies need information to make the brands you buy even better. That's where NCP comes in. Nielsen Consumer Panel pays consumers for their feedback on what they're buying.
How it works:
Members are given an easy-to-use handheld scanner. Scan bar codes during your weekly shopping trip and submit that information every week. You'll earn points that can be redeemed for different rewards.
For every week you turn in purchase information, you're entered into a monthly drawing for one of twenty-five $500 American Express Rewards Cards. Members can enter up to four times per month. Even better, every quarter one lucky panel member wins the $20,000 Grand Prix Prize!
KCL reader Onlysee tried it out and said, “Been a member of NCP for over 2 years… all you do is scan your purchases (for which you earn points and/or entries into their sweepstakes. If you're an AT&T customer for wireless, you also get a 25% discount on your monthly service by being a member. My kids get a real kick out of scanning the purchases we make, and we earn points that can be used for a variety of products/services.”
How do I sign up?
Space on Nielsen Home Scan Panels is usually limited. If you're interested, act fast!
