Rewards programs seem to be the newest perk that almost all retailers and websites are offering. But did you know that you can also earn rewards when you’re at the grocery store? Well, it’s true!

All you have to do is sign up for National Consumer Panel and start scanning what you buy. You’ll scan and send them your household purchase information every week with a handheld scanner that they provide–it’s that easy.


For each week of the month that NCP receives your purchase information, you will earn one entry into the Monthly Sweepstakes where you can win a $500 Visa Rewards Card.

Here are some other ways you can earn:

  • 20 Panel Members will be selected for a $250 Visa Gift Card each week.
  • 1 Panel Member will be selected for the $20,000 sweepstakes once a quarter.
  • Everyday scanning will result in earning valuable points, redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toys, gift cards and more.

Note that you’ll earn as much as you put into it. If you shop a few times a week, you’ll rack up points pretty quickly. It’s similar to how a rewards program on a credit card works.
