I posted about the National Consumer Panel previously and wanted to let you know that they’re once again accepting new members (plus NO landline is required)! The National Consumer Panel focuses on measuring consumer attitudes and behavior. As a panel member, they will provide you with a hand-held scanner. Every time you or members of your household shop, you’ll use the scanner to scan the barcodes on all of your purchases. Then, once a week, you’ll send them your purchase information. As a reward for doing so, you’ll earn gift points that are redeemable for name-brand merchandise, including electronics equipment, jewelry, household items, toys, and more!
Many readers have emailed me to let me know that their kiddos love to participate in the scanning process. It’s a great way to teach your kids about budgeting while making them feel very important! Make it a family activity and get everyone involved!
Check out this picture here to see how one reader snagged $30 in cash as a National Consumer Panel member!
