Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel (Accepting New Members)

Want to make money from home?  You all asked me about ways to earn extra money, so I plan to start sharing more about survey companies.  Join Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel – Earn valuable points, which are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more.(no landline required with this homescan signup)

Some of you have told me great things about NCP.  On the other hand, some of you thought the process was too involved and not worth your time.

Incentives:

For the $500 card:

  1. Sign up to become a NCP panel member.
  2. Scan your household purchase information (with a handheld scanner they provide).
  3. Send the purchase information to NCP.

For every week of the month NCP receives your purchase information, you’ll earn one entry in the monthly sweepstakes–where you can win a $500 American Express Rewards Card. That’s up to FOUR entries every month! And, every month, 25 panel members win!

That’s not all… Every quarter, an additional 40 panel members win a $500 American Express Rewards card–just by sending purchase information in every week of a month.

For the $20k:

  1. Sign up to become a NCP panel member.
  2. Scan your household purchase information (with a handheld scanner they provide).
  3. Send the purchase information to NCP.

For each week in a qualifying quarter NCP receives your purchase information, you’ll earn one entry into the Grand Prix Sweepstakes–where you can win $20,000! Every quarter one lucky panel member wins

Reader Tracy’s Experience:

Now that I have had this thing for a little while, I feel I can give a decent testimonial :)  I probably don’t understand all aspects of the program completely yet, but I figure that will come in time.  The scanner is pretty easy to operate, and the kids like it :)  We have gotten used to the fact now that before we put our groceries away, somebody needs to grab the scanner.  I just follow my receipt to scan my items and follow the prompts along the way to answer questions like “did you use a coupon”  and  “who went shopping with you”, etc.  I will be honest and say that I do not scan every single purchase I make like they request, but from what I can tell, you don’t get rewarded any more for more purchases.  As long as you submit a purchase once a week, you get a set amount of points.  As long as your scanner is on the base, it automatically submits for you.  The points add up to some prizes, but it takes a lot of points to get anything, and I personally don’t think there are a lot of prizes or variety of prizes to choose from.  I am more interested in the perks like getting entered in drawings to get your groceries paid for, etc….usually by answering short surveys.  I haven’t been rewarded yet, so I can’t say whether I think it is “worth it” yet, but so far it is not too much to handle on a weekly basis.  I’ll post an update if anything changes!

Let me know if you get accepted.

Save Money with Endorse Smart Phone App {Earn Cash Back}

Screen Shot 2013-01-15 at 7.07.46 AM

Reminder:

Endorse is a Smartphone App that allows you to earn up to 100% cash back on your everyday purchases! You will earn a percentage of the purchase price (between 10% and 100%) cash back instead of money off like ibotta.

The Endorse App is available on your iPhone or Android phone. Sign into the app using your Facebook account.

What is Endorse?

Endorse is a free mobile app that gives you offers from 10% to 100% cash back on your favorite everyday brands whenever you shop in your favorite stores. No coupons to clip or print, no bar codes to scan, and no strings attached. You simply earn cash for buying the products you use everyday.

Earn from 10% up to 100% cash back on your everyday purchases wherever you shop including Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kroger, Safeway, CVS, Whole Foods, Costco and Trader Joe’s.

You can also earn more cash back by sharing an offer on Facebook!  I earned 100% cash back (up to $3) on my recent coffee purchase when I shared the offer on my Facebook Page.  The offer was for ANY brand of coffee, so that is a great bonus!

Screen Shot 2013-02-10 at 6.28.43 PM

How it Works:

  • Browse offers before or while you shop
  • Upload receipts after shopping
  • Earn cash rewards every time you upload receipts and redeem offers
  • Earn points  just for uploading receipts (even ones without redeemed offers.) You’ll earn points redeemable for charitable donations made in your name
  • Invite Friends to earn $1 for every friend you refer – up to $500!

The offers last for one week and you get new offers every Thursday.

What’s the Difference Between Endorse and Ibotta?

  1. Ibotta offers money back on purchases while Endorse offers a cash back percentage on purchases.
  2. Ibotta is only valid at participating stores while Endorse is valid at any store.
  3. Ibotta can be “stacked” with manufactures coupons while Endorse Cash Back is factored AFTER coupons.
  4. Endorse allows you to earn additional points for uploading receipts for donations while Ibotta doesn’t.
  5. Ibotta allows you to “cash out” once you have $5 while you must have $25 from Endorse.  You can use PayPal or get a check with Endorse.
  6. Some Endorse offers are valid for any brand of a specific product ie. coffee or diapers while all Ibotta offers are valid for specific products/varieties

home_phones-vflTXUsya

Tip from Renee:
If you are planning on using Endorse, you will need to have the item for which you are getting cash back rung on a separate receipt.

Here’s why:
They calculate the out of pocket price of each individual product on your receipt by:
1. Deducting coupons that the receipt associates clearly with a particular item directly from its cost, and
2. Deducting a share of the coupons that the receipt does not clearly associate with a particular item evenly across all items on the receipt

This approach means that when a receipt has a lot of coupons, each item can end up having a different price when their software goes to calculate your rewards.

Endorse was designed to help you earn cash back for buying brands you love when you don’t already have a great coupon deal to get the item free or close to it—this is the way that we are going to be able to build a sustainable business where brands fund new ways for you to save on top of their existing coupon programs.

If you notice, Harris Teeter and Farm Fresh receipts do not state which product the coupon is for, so if you do purchase an item that has an Endorse offer, and you have no coupon for that item, the rest of the coupons on your receipt will be deducted from that item before your savings are calculated.

BOTTOM LINE: Ring up Endorse items and any associated coupons on a separate receipt!

Sign-up for Endorse and starting earning Cash Back on everyday purchases at any store you choose to shop!
