The Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel is accepting applications again so hurry over to sign up if you’re interested, they usually close the applications pretty fast. I applied quite awhile ago and was put on a waiting list until a scanner was available. I got my scanner in March and have been scanning away since then and so far I’m enjoying it. It was a little complicated right off the bat since I use so many coupons, but I’ve gotten pretty quick at it doing the scanning. I actually think its kinda neat being a “Nielsen household” – you don’t get a ton of points for scanning each week, but they also have lots of surveys that earn you points (my fave was a recent one asking for my pick on American Idol) and some really great prizes and rewards.
