If you want to make a little extra on the side, you might want to apply for the Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel. They are currently accepting applications! Not everyone qualifies for the program, you may be placed on a waiting list, like I was, then accepted for the program when they need people in your area.
What is Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel?
Once you are chosen to participate, Nielsen sends you all the information and the scanner FREE. You scan your purchases from your shopping trips, then upload that information to the Nielsen website. This earns you points that you cash in for all kinds fo goodies and gift cards!
If you decide you do not want to continue with the program at anytime, you can return the scanner at no charge! There are no obligations. You can work at your own pace and on your own schedule.
Go HERE to apply!!
