“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!
