If you've applied for the Nielsen Consumer Panel in the past and have been turned down, try again - your zip code may now be part of their program!
The panel focuses on measuring consumer attitudes and behavior. The panel members' opinions help manufacturers and retailers make decisions on what products to develop or improve.
If you're accepted as a panel member, the Nielsen Consumer Panel will provide you with a hand-held scanner as shown in the graphic above. Every time you or members of your household shop, you'll use the scanner to scan the barcodes on all of your purchases. Then, once a week, you'll send in your purchase information. No landline is required.
You'll earn gift points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, and you'll also earn entries into sweepstakes, such as the monthly $500 American Express gift card giveaway and the $20,000 quarterly giveaway.
