Moved to freebies and added more info to save anymore confusion by readers of the thread.

They should be paying you ...

Trick by Nielsen you know the nosey company who wants to know what you watch, what you eat, what you buy
Joining this project is basically doing job for them for a small consolation gift (if youre lucky)
They'll hire less employees. More unemployment

It's as "free" as a bus driver has a "free" bus to drive, or an office worker has a "free" chair to sit on.

They lend you a scanner, and you work for them for free (or for a token reward) using it.

In the process they learn all there is to learn about your life so they can target you more accurately with advertisements and you buy more stuff.

Like [Big Online Seller]'s "free" app that allows you to buy things from them on the go.

"Make a difference by letting Manufacturers and Retailers know what you like!" so that they can fleece you more effectively.

Bah Humbug

Don't do it. Nearly 6 months later all I got to show for it was a Blu ray with my points, and lots and lots of scanning

Agree - lots of hassle for very little return

I did the Neilsen panel for around a year and it was way more hassle than it was worth. If you want a decent panel to join then Shop and Scan are great, I've been a member of their panel for several years and have no complaints about them.

HASSLE

I got a 3ds last month from them but it took over 5yrs of scanning to get enough points for it. It's a lot of work for the rewards you get, depends if you can be bothered. Not voting hot or cold btw. xx

I was with them for about a year and it was a total waste of my time. If you forget to scan for even 1 week, you get endless phone call, text and snail mail asking why you not scanned and if it happens again we will reject you. They just pester you so much!

I registered before and didnt get any reponse

We do this - 5 mins a week to scan the barcodes as we put the groceries away, then connect the dongle to the PC and upload the barcodes - got sent £60 in Next vouchers last year (and the year before) - great Christmas pressies for Nieces and Nephews!

I am already on the Nielsen Panel on my Android and that is really good (made £70 in a year)so gonna sign up for this right now if allowed to do this and the Android.

Why all the negativism?

Get some heat OP!!
