The world’s largest market research company is opening the door to you and everyone in your household to make your opinions count as a member of the National Consumer Panel. Win cash and prizes! This is actually kind of fun; I did for a brief period a few years ago, before the kiddos came along. If approved for the panel, you'll receive a scanner and a few other little gadgets that allow you to report what you purchase to Nielsen. After you go shopping, you use the scanner to scan the barcodes of everything you purchase. Then, once a week, using your landline (you MUST have a home phone/landline), you dial in to an 800 number with your scanner. At least, this is how it worked a few years ago. I'm sure the technology has improved!
So, what's the benefit to you, you're asking? With everything you scan and report, you'll earn points. These points can then be exchanged for cash and/or prizes, all for free. For more infomation, check the website!
NOTE: Panelists MUST have a rotary landline, not connect to VOIP. Only certain zip codes will be accepted, so if you're interested, sign up and see! I think I'll try it again...why not?
