National Consumer Panel - Accepting Applications

The National Consumer Panel is once again accepting new applicants in many locations. They are a well known legit company that probably some of you belong to.

If you are accepted as a panel member, you will be sent a small hand-held scanner and will scan all the bar codes of everything you purchase. Once a week, you’ll transmit this
information and you’ll earn points which can be redeemed for a variety of items from the Gift Catalog.

The National Consumer Panel is a “mini-USA” that represents all types of Americans. Manufacturers and retailers will look at the information you send to them to decide what products to make and sell to consumers all across the country.

Let me know if you are accepted, I applied also and am curious to try it out.

I applied the first time you posted this and they didn't want me. So I applied again this time. They said you've already applied...they still don't want me, oh well.

I applied last time, and they said that they already have enough people in my area and wanted to put me on a waiting list.

I was accepted after a few months' wait and was sent the scanner and instructions. I was under the impression when I signed up that it would be for groceries only. They wanted EVERY PURCHASE scanned, and I was not okay with sending that much information to an outside party. I sent back my scanner a week later. I didn't have time for that anyway. Not worth the potential prizes.
