Update: I just head that they are now accepting new members in all areas! If you have not been able to get accepted in the past, you might want to try now. Just go HERE. Be sure to let us know if you’re able to get in!
It sounds like a bunch of you recently got notification that your Neilsen Scanners are on their way! Yay! ! I’m so excited for you! I also just got an e-mail from reader Sue with a neat idea on how to use Neilsen to teach kids:
What a cool idea! I remember when I first got married I was shocked at how much food cost…what a fun way to educate children and better prepare them for the real world!
If you are accepted as a panel member, the National Consumer Panel will provide you with a hand-held scanner. Every time you or members of your household shop, you’ll use the scanner to scan the bar-codes on your purchases. Then, once per week you transmit your purchase information to Nielsen by placing the scanner in it’s base and hitting “transmit”….it is super easy.
In exchange for transmitting your purchase information, you’ll earn gift points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, including electronics equipment, jewelry, household items, toys, and much more! You will also earn entries into their many exciting sweepstakes.
If you are interested in becoming a Panel member just head on over HERE to see if they are accepting new members in your area.
