Scanning and Taking Surveys with National Consumer Panel

To become a member the National Consumer Panel fill out the online registration form. Once selected to join the panel, members will be sent a free handheld scanner. This is used to record every day purchases such as groceries and household items via the barcode. Members can choose to scan their items in-store as they purchase products or after they return home. This information is then used for research purposes on buying habits of Americans across the country.

Some panelists may also receive email or paper mail invitations to complete surveys. Points are earned with either method, which can be used to redeem for a variety of gifts and prizes. Members often involve their children in the scanning process as it is a fun way to teach them about prices and budgeting. It can also teach them about work as they learn that they can earn a reward (such as a toy from the gift catalogue) for helping their parent with the research.

Rewards Explained

Members are asked to scan purchases each time they go shopping, and then to send that information to National Consumer Panel once per week. With each weekly data transfer, members earn points they can save up and use to redeem for a large number of products such as name-brand merchandise, including jewelry, electronics equipment, toys, household products and more, all from their gift catalogue. Members also receive sweepstakes entries with each transfer, including entries into the Grand Prix Sweepstakes. Prizes include $20,000, a vacation worth $25,000 and a new car or truck!

Consumers also get the satisfaction of knowing they are influencing future products through their involvement in the market research process. Making a difference is a reward in itself for many members.
