I've been a member of this site for years and it's awesome. They send you a scanner and every week you scan groceries and anything you have purchased and in return you get points for some nice things. If you scan every week you make points faster. You can also take short surveys on the site for more points. I got a coffee maker from them and some toys for my grandson. You don't even have to pay for shipping which is a plus. Their customer service is right on top of things if you need to contact them. You can get in touch with them by phone or email and you always get a quick response. Have you ever heard of this site? Are you a member?

You earn points not money...so far anyway. I'm thinking someday they will add paypal and maybe gift cards.

Oh for sure I've heard of the company...they rate tv shows too I think. I never joined but it sounds like fun. Maybe I'll check it out.

Their not the same people who rate tv shows maybe that's why they changed their name so they wouldn't get confusing.

When I went to check it out it says that AC Neilsen is part of the Neilsen ratings which is what I was talking about. AC Neilsen had a program called Homescan which is now called National Consumer Panel. They are all in the family.

I never heard of this site. Besides I hate surveys. But I could use a scanner, a large one because I make making a map for that novel I am writing and the small one on my printer only does eight by eleven. I could use a coffee maker that makes one cup coffee. I will have to check and see if it is available for Canada.

Are you talking about the one that you can get an app for on your Iphone?

timetravel you are right. It's a handheld like the stores have. I don't know if they have an app for your iphone but I'm willing to say they do.

It is available in Canada. They will send you a scanner to scan the barcodes on your purchases. Then you earn points that can be redeemed for things in their catalouge.

Yes, I was a member. It was really good. Money for nothing, basically. Anyway, it was working for years & they were paying me in gift vouchers & had competitions running every week too, when all of a sudden my damned phone company decided to 'upgrade' (I'd call it 'downgrade') the phone exchange thing for my street. I lost the 'data wire', because they, in their infinite wisdom, wouldn't need it, so they cut it. I then had to pay a few hundred dollars & take a day off work so they could run a whole new cable. By the time it was finally up & running again, some other free-loading schmuck in my local area had signed up to this same company & I was booted out! I've had to make another application to Nielsen to sign up again, but the only possibility of that ever happening again is when these people die or something.

I find this surprising! My d/i/l just registered for it and got it in no time. I don't think they turn anyone down who wants to do it.

if there are multiple people registering for it in your area they do. You can ring them up to find out as I did. I'm still on their waiting list ... waiting for those people who currently have it to die or something - as silly as it sounds.

I'm familiar with ACNeilsen and similar survey sites but most surveys aren't really worth the time that most of them take to fill out. This scanner thing sounds pretty neat though. I think that any opportunity that you have to make money from doing things that you are already doing is great.

They only have surveys once in awhile and you always qualify for them and get the points. It's definately not a survey site. It all has to do with scanning your purchases.

Yes i heard of this site, I even have one of their scanners, that I need to return back to them, and I don't need points to get prizes, i need to earn some money so this site wouldn't do me, any good as far as, earning me some money.

Yes, it's nice to earn money but I'm happy with all the gifts they have in their catalog. I'm sorry your not happy with it.
