I love Nielsen! I have been a member of the Nielsen Home Consumer Panel for months and have enjoyed the perks of being part of the one of the best online internet panels. At Nielsen you can earn awesome rewards like Gift Cards, Cash, Electronics, Travel Packages, and more just by taking surveys about products and by using the nifty scanner Nielsen sends you in the mail and scanning the purchases that you make. Plus, from time to time, Nielsen sends free cash incentives, and full size products for you to test and KEEP!
The thing that sets Nielsen apart from other panels is that they don't just let anyone in. They go through a screening process to pick and choose the best families for the panel. Part of this screening includes limitation to certain zip codes! I just got word that they have opened up SEVERAL zip codes and are allowing more members! What this means is that even if you tried (and failed) to get into Nielsen before you can now try again and have a good shot with the new zip codes added!
Here is 3 readers stories about Nielsen and their experience with the Panel:
From Reader Ashley J:
I Love Nielsen! I Have only been a member for about 2 months now but i've already received $20 (cash!) free, and have been accumulating some serious points! I scan my purchases only once weekly and it's pretty easy. You have to have a little patience and time to be able to scan, but the rewards are worth it!
From Reader Melissa P.:
Nielsen honestly wasn't for me, being a single mom with 3 kids at home and a full time job. I wish I had more time to put into it as I can see the rewards are worth it, but that's not the case. I was able to send the scanner back with no obligation and keep the extra free stuff they sent along with the packet! I do recommend it to anyone that does have the extra time needed as it's a cool program.
From Reader Andrea M:
I have actually been a member of Nielsen for over a year now. I have earned several gift cards and also have got different freebies in the mail over time from Nielsen since I joined. I have received reusable bags, visors, an umbrella, and other random things bearing the Nielsen logo. I totally recommend people join Nielsen, it's a great panel with great rewards and it's easy!
