Neilson Homescan Consumer Panel

A few months ago I signed up for the Neilson (yes as in Neilson ratings for television) Homescan Consumer Panel. I have been on a waiting list in order to be added to this panel since then. I got a call this afternoon saying I had been selected.

Basically what happens is they send you a hand held scanner, much like what you see in the stores when associates are stocking shelves. Each week whenevr you buy something, you scan the barcode and once per week you upload all information to Neilson. Each week that you upload information to Neilson, you are awarded points which you can trade for merchandise from their catalog and you are also entered into contests and sweepstakes.

I should receive my scanner in 3 weeks and I honestly can't wait until I can start scanning. My purchases along with others will help shape what you see on the store shelves in the future. If you are interested in this opportunity all you have to do is click here

It has been a year since this post... how has your experience been with the home panel? I received the call today that I will be receiving my scanner in 2 - 3 weeks and am curious to know if it is worth it.
