Get rewarded for scanning products you buy from shops. Sign up for free with Nielsen's Scanning Panel and you'll be sent a hand-held product scanner free of charge. Then simply scan the barcodes of the products you buy from any retailer and you'll be receive points which you can use to redeem a variety of gifts from their exclusive gift catalogue. Gifts include things such as iPods, TVs and a number of homeware items.

By taking part in this research you not only earn these rewards, but the data sent to Nielsen through the product scanner also influences what products you will see on shop shelves in the future.

Follow the link to sign up and receive your free product scanner. We found the registration form to take between 2-3 minutes, but it is very simple and easy to navigate through. Also if you answer no to most questions, it becomes a much quicker proces. Once you have completed the form you will be contacted by someone from Nielsen within 2 weeks to begin earning rewards.

You have to scan every item that anyone in your household buys. So not good for people who would be too lazy to do this.

so don't know yet how is this viable and plus all it has as a contact is phone and email and no sign of who they are...

Not 100% sure, but it seems that the link is a referral. Could be wrong, though, so I'm not going to vote cold just yet.

whether or not its a referral, this is not a scam I've signed up before and if you don't keep on top of it they shut your account down and ask you to send the stuff back. as I work away I couldn't do this within the time frame they wanted they start sending you invoices of well over £100 then you end up with solicitors letters through your door threating you its not worth the time or hassle of it

I was a part of this scanning panel... it was really hard work scanning absolutely everything, especially when barcodes were not accepted and you had to type things in by hand. It isn't until you have to scan individual items that you realize how much we purchase during a grocery shop... not to mention that fruit and veg don't always come with barcodes, and when they do the barcodes don't work so you have to enter everything by hand. In general it would take me 1/2 an hour with the help of my husband in order to enter a £60.00 grocery shop. What you get... points... and entry into a prize draw which, after 2 years of hard graft, I never won. After 2 years I earned enough points to cash them in for a dvd (not even a new movie). It was the hardest work I ever did and all for a dvd. This is not a scan - it's a scam and should be called 'How to make people work for manufacturers for absolutely nothing'. At the end of 2 years I quit and was asked to return the scanner... which I happily did. And did I mention that you also have to fill in surveys every month? No, oh well...

DuVDe for 2yrs of hard work that's that is OMGee

Well this kind of information collection is collected by supermarket through your Loyalty card so why sweat it out....

I was a Nielsen panel member for a while, and it was too much effort for the reward. There are much better scanning panels out there

I am currently a Nielsen panel memeber and I am awaiting my latest cinema ticket to arrive before cancelling. I earn 3-4 cinema tickets per year for scanning my shopping every week. If you are lucky it will equate to about 35p an hour - not worth it unless you have loads of free time and don't mind calls if your scanning isn't received by Nielsen.

I do Shopandscan, very quick and simple and you get points that you can redeem for high street vouchers/ecodes etc. I don't spend real money on Amazon any more, just redeem an ecode when I need one.

shopandscan is easier, you get paid £1.60 a week for scanning the shopping and sending the receipts, or just £1.10 for the scanning. it adds up, it normally takes me 5 minutes to do it. the annoying thing about them is that they want to know what was on offer and I can't always remember ( and the shops don't always put it on the receipt).

nosy parkers!

You clearly have no idea what Whois data means. That page does not say that the website was created on that date, nor that the website expires on the given day. What it says is that they paid for the domain name to be registered for 5 years and expires on the given date. Then they can re-register the domain name. That is how the domain name system has worked since it was conceived.

It also gives a fax number, two contact names, with telephone numbers and corresponding e-mail addresses, plus the address of their Rotterdam offices. All you have to do is go through to the domain of their e-mail addresses to find the parent company (SSI) which spans 74 countries, operating out of 26 offices in 18 countries.

So whilst it is good that you are doing some checks, you would be better learning a bit more about what checks to do and how before offering advice to others.

I literally sent mine back today, did it for 3 months then got fed up of manually scanning each item and typing in the cost of each etc.....I then didn't do it for a couple of months and got some letters threatening court action and a cheeky invoice totalling the cost of the equipment if I didn't return it.....so I just did another 6 months later!

They are legit, I had to phone them once when starting out with a problem. It's ok if you have the time but it's tedious

The return address was "fact finders"

Nielsen is a huge well-respected global company that's been around forever, which would have been obvious from a quick Google.

Wouldn't recommend this - did it for over a year - very tedious and time consuming. Like a previous comment the reward for all this effort was 2 DVDs (my choice from a list of available rewards for points earned). There are also free monthly draws for extra prizes (or at least there were when I did it) but I was never lucky enough to win any of those.

I hadn't realised this one was so bad, but can def. recommend the Kantar panel. I get Amazon vouchers every 5-6 weeks or so from there

i do shopandscan, with foodonthego and petrolpanel, plus upload receipts all for kantar all in last yr i got over £350.00 in amazon vouchers. well worth the few minutes a wk it takes.

That's what I was going to pick up on. Everybody domains expire, I'm sure he wouldn't say the same when ASDA's domain ends...
