Earn money while grocery shopping

Earn money grocery shopping!

Nielsen Homescan Consumer Panel wants to know where you shop and what you’re buying and in return, you will get paid for it (really, it’s true!)

Simply sign up for the panel and they’ll send you a scanner free of charge. Connect the scanner to your phone line and just scan your groceries as you’re putting them away. You’ll earn points that you can exchange for gift cards and more!

This is a great way to earn some extra cash doing what you already do every day. It takes a little extra time when you come home from the store, but it’s one of the easiest ways to supplement your budget without changing your lifestyle drastically!


  1. darn! I wanted to join this but they are not in my area :(:( I wish I could participate in all your amazing deals!

  2. This looks great! But I am not sure if it would be worth the time and effort. I’d love to hear more about it. Is this something you are doing? The website doesn’t seem to offer enough information.

  3. I did it in FL and haven’t signed up again since we moved. Basically, once you bring your groceries home, you use a small scanner to scan the barcodes of grocery items you buy as you put them away. It takes an extra few minutes when you come home, but I earned a $25 gift card really fast (plus they offer other opportunities to earn extra money, like filling out surveys, etc). Does that help?
