We’ve had a number of you contact us asking for ideas on bringing in extra income recently and so we really are going to try to post more specific ideas from our 100 Ways to Earn Extra Income.
With that, there are some really easy and rewarding ways to bring in a buck without much commitment or time needed, just put in the time when you can! So today’s feature is just that – one of those easy ways!
It is called National Consumer Panel! They are open again and last time we were able to tell you was earlier this year. Now that they have some openings again we are posting this as we know many of you have liked this program before and wanted to provide this opportunity for extra income before they closed again! They are also giving away $500 to a new applicant too, so you never know, you might qualify and win $500 in addition to extra income 🙂
Read below to get details on an easy opportunity to be rewarded for your normal grocery shopping (whether you use coupons or not!). It appears that they have added some zip codes and are accepting new applicants in these zip codes. We don’t know what those zip codes are, you will just need to fill-out the first page (no more than you would fill out for a sample) to see if your zip code is open!
If you haven’t heard about Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel before, then let us tell you what it is! A while back, we too had not, but we had several friends that are consumer panelists for this company and they really like it! In addition, you can win cash and earn prizes just for doing something you all ready do – Shop.
Essentially how it works is (if you are accepted) you will receive a price gun and you will scan your groceries as you put them away. They are tracking consumer spending habits to see how to change the market, etc. This is a fun activity for kids to do while you’re putting groceries away and the longer you’re a panelist, the better the prizes get.
So you can join Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel – Earn valuable points, which are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more.
In addition, every quarter an additional 40 panel members win a $500 American Express Rewards card just by sending purchase information in every week of a month. Once you become a NCP panel member all you have to do is scan and send them your household purchase information every week with a handheld scanner that they provide. For each week in a qualifying quarter NCP receives your purchase information you will earn one entry into their Grand Prix Sweepstakes where you can win $20,000! Every quarter one lucky panel member wins!
Their application windows are short, so if you and your family is interested, don’t hesitate to apply!

We have heard from a number of you that you or your kids really enjoy doing this! The best recommendation we have received from many of you is to at least try it out for yourself and see if it is something that fits and if not, then you don’t have to do it! But trying is the best way to decide. Some people didn’t like it and others have done it for a long time! Either way, you can earn a little while trying it out 🙂
