    Free Gifts For Participating In Nielsen Consumer Panel Research @ Nielsen

    Sign up (long winded questionairre) and if successful they will send you a handheld scanner to zap all your shopping with before you put it away. Once a week the info is sent back to them, and you get points for participating, to spend on free giftage. Not done this before, but got to be worth a shot whilst on maternity leave!

    Wasn't sure whether to put this in deals or freebies, so please move it if I've plumped for the wrong one!

    It should work - I've reported for mod fixation. LINK

    I do hope all the cold votes weren't just because of a broken link!

    i have this already and although it does seem simple it can be a pain as not only do you have to scan everything you but in your shopping you also have to enter the price from the receip, so something that usually takes 10 mins putting away can take 30 mins= dependant on size of things bought

    Hmm, thanks for that - doesn't mention that when you sign up! Can you advise on the point scheme? Do you earn them in a reasonable time? Are the goodies any good?

    the rewards are very good but can be a while to get them. i have only just started just before xmas and got approx 800 points - the top top rewards are about 10000 - 40000 points so you can see that it could take a while, they also give you surveys to fill in periodically and also let you know if your info hasnt gone for any reason, also if tou are away on holiday you can still earn points by filling in the absence from on the scanner itself.

    Sounds good to me, too much time on my hands anyway. Maybe I can train one of the children to zap and input numbers, good for their number recognition I suppose!

    it is a good idea really just that you have to be vigilant that you always remember to scan every week. my wife does little shops sometimes and doesn't scan so i fell like we are cheating the system really as they are wanting a full history of what you buy week in week out.

    Moved to competitions as being more appropriate. I don't see this as a freebie for all.

    Hence my indecision, but it's definitely not a competition either! I get you though, maybe more appropriate.

    Just signed up. I find that they asked too much about the people you live with. I don't want to give personal information about house mates, family members...etc.
    I only signed up because I got a free nokia n8 and vouchers every 3 months out of them before.

    hmm, signup process was balls. Asked me how many people living with me, answer = 0. Then asks me how many are under 15. But the drop-down was empty so couldn't select anything. Therefore gave up. Their losss I say!

    Woo-hoo - my scanner has just arrived! Sadly it's made me quite excited about going to ASDA later.

    are you still doing it i've got an email 2day asking me to join is it worth it then

    I've just cancelled my membership - I got sick and tired of the scanner not sending the info. NOW I find I can't get my (over) 35,000 points as I can't access the catalogue.
