Here is another survey opportunity with openings for 2012.
Nielsen Home Scan (National Consumer Panel) is taking applications from U.S. residents. If accepted, you will receive a price gun to scan your groceries and coupons.
Each item you scan earns you points, which are redeemable for gift cards, electronics, household items and more. The longer you are a member, the better prizes you will get.
I know a few readers who have participated in Nielsen in the past. Some have loved it, while others find it’s too time-consuming. The ones who seem to like it the best have actually involved their young kids in scanning the groceries (I know my 6 year-old would be totally in to that!).
And now, for my standard survey disclaimer: If you have a few spare moments in your day and are online anyway, being a survey panelist can be a fun and easy way to earn some “mad money”. While everyone is different, it seems that most of my readers are bringing in somewhere between $15 and $40 a month from participating in surveys. Definitely enough to fund a fun date night at Starbucks!
(This Nielsen program does not require a land line – so if that’s what prevented you from joining in the past, you are good on this one!)
